950 Super Enduro "Quick Question(s)" Thread...

Gentlemen,


I have been in the OC for a little while now, and noticed that (to the best of my knowledge) there is no specific thread where an SE owner can ask a quick question or two (short of starting an entirely new thread for each and every subject). I have posted a coupla' of questions in the 950 SE Photo Thread, but never felt right about doing it.

When I owned my DR650SE, I could go to the DR650 thread, and ask about almost anything. Within five minutes, there were usually three to four responses (like the OC, great bunch of guys over there). So, I wanted to start a similar thread, in the OC, where SE pilots could ask a question or two...whether they were in the middle of a project (and encountered a problem), or just wanted the SE gurus to weigh-in on a strange behavior or issue.

I know that redundancy is met pretty harshly. So, if I am wrong, and a thread like this already exists, I hope that the Mods. will toast this one.


And, for good measure, I will start it off...

I recently pulled-apart the SE to check all the carb. and airbox venting, and complete the H2W jetting. When I did so, I came-across some things about which I wanted to inquire.

1. There is a female connector, between the cylinders, that resembles the horn connectors. It has a transparent blue rubber cover, and appears to be disconnected from a corresponding male connector that is screwed into the front cylinder. What are they...and are they supposed to be connected?

2. There are two hoses that are connected to what I could call the intake manifold area, on the right side. One hose has a screw placed in it, and the other was attached to the right, bottom of the airbox. I assume that the Dealer did this during the SAS/Canisterectomy. Are they supposed to be done that way?

3. How do you adjust the floats in the carbs.?


Thanks in advance...

Don't know about the clocks on the later 990s but with the clocks as found on the SE (& SM) the manual only shows it in 24 hour mode (military as you say) and only details how to adjust it. I cannot see any other way to change it either.

Tank Bag for SE with Safari tank...

I've decided I need a waterproof tank bag for my SE, which is fitted with a Safari 7.9-gallon tank. I want something as small and out-of-the-way as possible - enough to hold a camera, cell phone, wallet, etc. - that is water-PROOF when closed, not one that requires a separate rain cover.

The ideal size would be like a Wolfman Enduro, but that model isn't waterproof.

I'm also wondering if the Safari's gas cap vent tube will interfere with fitment.

Anyone with the SE and Safari got a recommendation? I've seen the GL Fandango but it looks on the large side for what I'm after.

Thanks!

I got caught in an absolute frog-strangling downpour for about an hour, during rush hour, on the way home from work a coupla weeks ago. I was so focused on not being taken out by soccer moms, it never occurred to me to stop and put the rain cover on my Wolfman Enduro tankbag. When I got home, the outside of the bag was absolutely saturated, but the inside was bone dry. I think I'll spray it with Scotchguard and call it good. I'll use the rain cover if I know I'm going to be in the rain all day.

This will be my next tank bag purchase:

KRIEGA PRODUCTS

A 10 litre US-10 would be good for day trips and the US-20 (if the bars allow) for the big trips.
