I've got 0.50s in my WPs and a 8.5 in my Ohlins and I'm 110 with riding gear on and its fine. Add luggage and it is still OK.

Try adjusting the clickers. Make big changes to one at a time to see if its the right way to go. Is your sag set correctly?
I've posted this setup info on UHE, might help.

"Good Ol' Boy" with panniers.

It's the technical term. I found it on Google.

Or "Good Ol' Texan Boy" without panniers.


The first Google hit was "Lard Ass" but I thought that was a bit unkind.

The IMS-supplied petcock is of questionable quality. I used it initially, and it wasn't long before it became difficult to turn on and off. It was at that point that I was nervous enough about it that I replaced it with the Raptor petcock. It took a little while to hog out the petcock hole in the bottom of the tank for it to fit, but it worked.

Now if I could just do something about that stupid up-turn on the FCR carb for the fuel line so I didn't have to loop the damn thing coming off the tank.

You're very kind.

Thanks for all the good advice and tips regarding the TM40.

I think I've sufficiently got the fuel mixture screw and the idle adjustment knob out of sync enough that I'm not sure where to start getting things back to normal.

The TM40 manual recommends starting the fuel mixture screw at 3 turns out. What I'm confused about is where the idle adjustment knob should be set to while I'm tweaking the FM screw.

I'd assume I'd back the idle adjustment knob out to the point where it doesn't have an affect on idle speed, so I can better tell what the FM screw is doing... but I'm not sure. Thanks!

Agreed...I did the same to the tank and shaved a little off the cooling fins and kept the stock vacuum operated petcock

Just installed an HID headlight on my ride. Just wondering where everybody puts their ballast? I put mine on top of the lamp, under the wiring bundle near the speedo. Im afraid its going to get too hot. Any suggestions?

I asked this a couple of weeks ago, but this thread moves so fast it got lost lol
