Well I guess im done riding my bike until I can get a jet kit for it.. Just took my plug out and it was all burned up. P/O had mods with no jet kit on it. hopefully the engine isn't too screwed up now after 6K. It raised a red flag when he told me it dident have a jet kit I should have done some more research. It ran okay for me... Never got hotter than 225F on the dip stick thermometer. Ill see how it runs when I fix it I guess...

As a matter of fact, I'm taking pictures of stuff to list so when my C-Dub bill comes due I can afford to pay him

depending on what brand you use (I'm using Gerbing heated glove liners and jacket liner), each item came with at least part of the wiring harness, as in: the part that you connect to your battery with a fuse holder to a plug that you plug your controller into, the controller is on my body so even though it's connected strait to the battery I have to unplug it to leave the motorcycle so I don't have to worry about draining the battery unless I decide to take a nap on top of it with the bike not running.

oh, don't do that...I thought I was being clever tapping into the low beam headlight wire for power when I hooked up my O2 sensor/reader, then I accidentally hit the high beam switch and my O2 reader went blank...for a second I was thinking what now!!!!,so I looked and saw I hit the high beam switch, switched it back to low beam and my O2 sensor started sensing again.
now I get to run it to a new power supply...not sure where yet.

You want some bling well heck we can do that......

Talking IMS or Clark

I tried to find a discussion on this, but did not have any luck. I want to put a bigger tank on. I am looking at the IMS 4.0 or the Clark 4.7

Anybody out there with some advice, looking for pro's & con's

Places where I can find them will be appreciated as well, it seems Bajadesigns does not sell them anymore, did ask XR Only but up to now did not get a reply on the tank.

If I am posting in the wrong place, please move me or tell me where to post

Thanks

Thanks! I used the same ATF With all the changes together... I am really happy with the way she rides now. Smooth at 75-80+ with excellent throttle response when I need it.

The clarke 4.0 tanks fit and finish is excellent and so is the 4.7 tank, if you ever go with a big finned head the clarke tank clears the fins better.
I don't think IMS makes a red tank anylonger for the XRL do they?

I'm working on it...
The problem I'm having is finding good poeple who want to work, right now I'm doing 75% of the work myself and can't even begin to keep up.
For instance I hired a young lady a few weeks ago to answer phones place and write orders and start an E-bay store and website and other things like ship out packages, well to make a long story short she needed some money to pay her bills" I'm a sucker when it comes to women" so I gave her 2 grand and I haven't seen the "C word here" since. damn hookers anyway..
Don't hire hot chicks they will F you over..hire them fat old ugly ones, eye candy distracts your hired
helps thoughts.


I have two of my old employee's working for me again but there swamped right now...I have a couple contracts with two big manufactures and I have them dedicated to those clients right now.

Maybe I should give up the motor stuff and just make little blingie parts probably more profit in it too than building cams and pistons and doing machine and motor work and it would free me up..

Another thing is if I make 500 of these caps I would be left with 492 of them because you and Mike are the only ones who want them so far. You're right I need to get an e-bay store...to widen my base..

Thanks for the inspiration..

Thanks for reply, still like the look of the Ims, but maybe that extra 0.7 gallon on the Clark will make a difference.

I like the looks of the 4.0 clarke and IMS tank there darn neer the same, the IMS hangs down a tad farther though.
Here's a clarke 4.0 pic.
