Yep. Just left the cap on it the way it came to me. By starter spray i presume you mean aerosol ether while the carb is on and running?

Yes, just spray around the boots front and rear withit running. If there is a leak the rpm will increase. Good luck!

Yes with the motor running, spray the areas that were mentioned. You don't need to go crazy and soak the carb down. You're just trying to find anyplace other than the intake that air may be getting into the carb.

Procycle has been great and very helpful with all of my thousands of dollars worth of farkles and i appreciate their service very much, but this seems to be a very unanticipated problem straight out of the box. Id be grateful for more insight on this issue from jeff or antone over there. I dont want to return the tm40 but my uneducated self could use a walk through from them if i could. I dont intend on being a PIA but i just want it to work right. Cheers
Myself and a friend both recently put TM40's on ours no problems!!! A week or so later his was popping and farting with very similar symptoms to yours. We pulled the carby and found the pilot jet was blocked, blew it out, carby back on and a little bit of tuning and problem solved.
Have a look at the pilot jet, you can rotate the carby if you have a standard tank and remove the bowl to remove the jet.
Hope this helps.

Can you tell me more about the windscreen and front brake?...

I would also like to know more about the windscreen.

On a side note, I know exactly what business park you took those pictures in because I'm out there four nights a week.

The front break is just the OEM system with an adapter from WARP 9 to allow for the 320mm rotor.

Jesse @ Kientech carries the B&B frame guards for the DR350, maybe he can get the ones for the 650, too? I'm interested in them myself so I'll check with him next week and report back here. I need to call in an order for GSXR exhaust hanger and plate anyway.

NSU upgrade - torque specs and gasket question

Hi all,

I know this subject has been flogged to the hilt but is it absolutely necessary to use a torque wrench to do the clutch cover bolts back up to spec. The only reason why I ask is because I don't have a torque wrench but if its important enough, may buy one?

What are the specs for the clutch cover bolts: I tried to find but couldn't locate.

And when I put the gasket back on, is "gasket goo" (or similar product) necessary?

thanks heaps from the very new noob.

The bolts holding the cover only go to around 7 ft/lbs of torque which is not much,its only a 6 mm bolt.
At the most it would be seated by hand and no more than a 1/4 turn more.
Seat them,then just nip them up,with a new gasket just fit it as it is,just make sure the surface on the case and cover is clean and free of any old gasket material.

PM me if you need a link to the manual.

A torque wrench isn't necessary if you're a tool guy, how's your 'touch'? Instead of a torque wrench you could buy a 1/4" drive ratchet set and use it for all the 6mm bolts on your bike. Just a little bit past snug. There are a dozen of them, just look for leaks and re-snug. This is a case where loosish is way better than stripping a hole in your alum case.

My mechanic wizard buddy just puts a coat of grease on those gaskets, they almost take themselves apart next time.

If you don't have it apart yet, allow time to get the old gasket off, don't be in a hurry. My gasket was damn near welded to the clutch cover and broke into several pieces when I removed the cover. Pematex makes a gasket remover, but it takes a long time and several applications in my case. I won't use a steel blade on an alum gasket surface, too easy to FU. Someone mentioned using an old credit card.
