I've read the questions and so I realize you might not be able to answer this question but here it goes;
Will it survive a trip to Sweden?
I'm flying to Athens on the 26th and supposed to fly back on th 3rd of May but if you think it's up for the job and give me a good price I'll put cash in your hand!

I need a bit of spring adventure and isn't that what this site is all about?!

19 - 17 akront rimms for sale

Hi all,

I have a set of silver colored AKRONT rimms for sale.

They came off my 1997 cagiva elefant and are in good condition (the quility of akront is far superior to the OEM DID that was on the honda's and yamaha's).

It is a 19 inch (front) suited for 100 wide tires and a 17 inch (3.25 large) for 140-150 tires).

I converted my elefant to 21 - 18, so if anyone is interested, pm me.

Cheers

Did you examine the slide diaphragms completely and carefully pull them open to look for tears? Did you put the carb tops on correctly. On some, there is a small "dent" in the top that has to be aligned with a bleed vent in the carb body. It is possible to turn the tops so that bit doesn't line up.

What do I get if I win?
Ladder,
My AT is exhibiting the same problems as Thump's. I've had it to the LHD twice and have gotten no relief. I have the carbs off now and one issue discovered is one side of the pilot jet screw is broken where someone tried to remove it. We haven't checked the diaphrams yet. Could this affect performance?

Exhaust

Hello All,
I am currently in the states and it just so happens that Leo Vince USA is just down the street from my sisters place and I was wondering if someone could help me with an important question? They have the SBK OVAL EVO II ALUMINUM slip on for the 1993 in stock but that's the furthest back that they go (even surprised they had anything for a Twin). Can anyone tell me if this pipe will fit the 1990? I can't tell if the mounting points are the same, I have tried comparing by looking at the photos but that's just not going to cut it, I need first hand knowledge. Also if this pipe isn't going to work could someone please guide me to one that will.

Thanks for the help in advance

Few weeks ago i bought a second hand Touratech fuel tank 43L.
It was on a white colour and i deside to paint it in red as the colour of my bike.
I m gonna make some nice decals to put on it.
How do you see the result? Is it looks ok? When everything ready i ll upload more fotos.

Hi @dreamer,

AT 04 and 07 has the same exhaust pipe diameter, only mounting points are not the same. Easy solution is mounting clamps for oval exhaust and it fit perfectly.

@RiderMakis- why didn't you paint those lines too? doesn't the tank have points to install fuel sensors?
@621andy- SUPERB!

Could the broken pilot affect performance?..........Possibly, if it's partially clogged. However, if the bike idles and runs well at small throttle openings, the pilot jet should be OK.

Whenever you remove the pilots you MUST have a screwdriver that fits the slot perfectly....otherwise they can break. If it were me, I'd try to remove it once but if it doesn't want to turn, I'd leave it alone. Shine a strong light down inside and try to determine if it's blocked or has foreign material in it. It's a very very small hole...so this is difficult at best.

Generally, I never stick anything inside a jet - the pilot in particular - because the hole is so small. If you find it blocked I'd try compressed air first. Shoot the air up through the pilot jet hole on the other carb (with the pilot jet removed) so you can see where the pilot bleed hole is on the carb body......then try to shoot air in through THAT hole on the bad carb. What you're trying to do is "backflush" the jet.

Blowing air into the pilot jet in the direction that fuel normally flows just serves to block it further if there is dirt or other material down there.

OK...so back to the problem. The bike runs fine until 4000 rpm or so at which point it seems like it's running out of fuel, correct.

A few things that will give this symptom:
Water in the fuel.....if there's just a bit, the water will form a bubble at the low point of the bowl. Fuel is not drawn up from this point (through the main and into the needle jet) until higher rpms ....so the water just sits there until it gets sucked up at higher rpm causing problems. Drain the bowls through the drain ports in the bottom of the bowl. Drain into a clear container so and let the fuel sit for a few minutes. If there's any water, it will settle to the bottom.

A dying fuel pump....The bane of the ATs. Your fuel pump may be able to keep up with the flow required at lower loads and rpm but not provide enough fuel at higher rpm and load. You should be able to test this by bypassing the fuel pump with some extra fuel line. The tank will "gravity-feed" for about 2/3 of the tank before the fuel pump is really necessary anyway.

A partially torn carb diaphragm...Description of problem already provided. To examine the diaphragms remove them and gently invert them looking for tears or cracks. They tend to bend and flex at one point at the crusing speed the bike sees most often. This is normally where cracks occur.

Hoping you find this helpful. Pleas post what you discover

My friend as you know A/T RD 07 has no fuel gauge. Thats why i left the two lines without paint. To see the fuel level inside the tank.
