The dash is looking good. Keep it up! Maybe you'll make one to fit the Voyager. Hopefully, Trailtech comes out with a fully map, color version one of these days. The market is ready!

Spud, D-Ray is legit! I just watched the oil changing one. SWEET!

You need a thin-wall spark plug socket, such as the one Honda "used" to supply in the tool kit. You can get the "official" spark plug socket from Honda. It's part #2 in the following diagram.



The spark plug socket is Honda part #89216-MJ1-000, and it sells for $14.45. I'm sure you can get an aftermarket socket which will also work.

Definitely add a USB port, and anything else you can think of! I'm designing a mount for a Trail Tech Vapor I plan to install on my "new to me," CRF250X. Do you plan to secure the mount to the handlebars bolts?

A poorly running engine can be caused by problems in one of the four, following areas.

1) Spark
2) Fuel
3) Air
4) Compression

It's hard to tell what is causing the problem until you do some testing. I would start with the spark plug, but you need a new socket before you can remove it.

Are the jets clean in your carburetor? Have you cleaned the air filter? Does the bike have good compression?

You need either the spark plug wrench that came in the stock tool kit, or something like this special socket from Motion Pro.


The spark plug is 18mm, but because of how deep it is in the head, and some other obstructions on the head you can't get a standard 18mm spark plug socket down to it. You need a thin wall design. The tool kit spark plug socket can be ordered from your favorite Honda dealer, or you can buy the one pictured and linked above. My parts book lists part # 89216-MJ1-000 for the Honda tool. There may be other options but I don't know what they are. I would also note that about 2007 or 2008 Honda quit including the tool kit on the bike when new. You now have to buy it separately if you want it.

And the Great Basin holds even more!

What's the best place to buy this stuff on sale?

Question Is a Sudco FCR41 flatside pumper carb worth the upgrade on an internally stock motor?

A friend has a Sudco FCR41 flatslide pumper carb for sale.....I was thinking of picking it up, but I wanted to know from you guys what performance gains I would get on an internally stock motor. I have a Uni filter, desnorkeled and cut air box, full exhaust and the stock carb with Daves Mods. Will the FCR give me any more overall power than the stock carb?
I'm not sure I want to go through the carb swapping effort unless I can get more power......I'm happy enough with the throttle response of the stock carb that I don't want the hassle of changing over just for that.
C'mon pumper guys, lead me down the right path

Also, would I need to get a different throttle or cables? And I'm assuming I'd need an adapter or 2 of some kind to mount the carb up?

Not more power , just more instant power thru better throttle response.

Just me, my machine and my backpack
That makes two of us, so I guess you're not THE exception.

For mine I use a deep 18mm socket, a 3/8 u-joint, and a long extension. Works for me.
