Well it's back together and I took it down and filled the tank. It took 2.2 gallons with the nozzle auto-stop and managed to squeeze 2.5 in it by topping it off.

How do these bikes behave when they need to be flipped over to reserve? Ran like a champ there on reserve, flipped to on when I filled it, and ran like a champ back. Granted, it's only 2.1 miles round trip. I suspect my own unfamiliarity might be to blame this time, but at least the air filter is clean. I'll keep track of the mileage now and see what kind of MPG it's getting.

My DR and my wife's, as they are running out of gas start idling high, then if I'm moving, start backfiring and cutting out intermittently, then completely if I don't hit reserve in time.

DR Wiring and New Bolts all aournd

Hi everyone,

Well I'm coming down to getting ready to reassemble my best. I have the manual etc, but I wanted to ask if anyone has a better detailed hiring diagram for routing the wiring like factory. Also there was a site some years ago that you can get all new bolts..

Any one remember?
Thanks in advance.

I just got back from Mammoth doing just that. Awesome time!

There's a routing guide in the service manual, section 7-12, or are you looking for something different?

Save your money on a new one and snag a good used one. You will save at least 2 grand. If you intend to take it in some rough stuff better take the cheaper one.

As a new rider....Don't give in and buy a new one. I think the two you listed are a little overpriced, but they are identical to the 2012 and actually are nicer colors. I thought I would like the Grey, but I now find it bland and monotone. I should have stuck to my plan because 3 weeks after buying my new one, a nice blue/white one with less than 3000 miles showed up in my own freaking neighborhood. It was only listed at $3400.

I would check out the yellow one first since it has lower miles and is a nice bright color. These bikes are reliable and 2600 is very low miles. I have 1800 on mine and I brought it home March 31st 2012. If those two sale, just be patient and one will come up for sale in KC area eventually. Heck, I have almost convinced myself I need a Super Tenere, and might put mine up for sale someday.
Plastics can be found cheap in many colors. There's a collection of white plastics for sale on Ebay right now...$50 shipping and $100 (Buy it now) price. Motorcycle Superstore also has Polisport YZF450 front fenders on sale for like $4.99. Procycle sells complete sets of new plastics too, but these cost around $350 or so.

I've removed that fuel filter temporarily. I've also cleaned the air filter...I will oil it and re-install and see what happens. I'm also going to fill the tank in case being low on fuel might be the culprit. Like I said, I've only put maybe 60 or 80 miles on this thing so I am not really acclimated to its quirks just yet.
I had the same problem. It turned out to be the locking gas cap (aftermarket part) on my IMS tank was not venting (vents through the key hole). I pitched the locking cap and went to a vented Tusk billet gas cap.

Try cracking the gas cap open if it does it again and leave it cracked. If it runs fine then you found the problem.

(30-50 mins one way depending on traffic) i believe it still has the the stock jets as i was trying to avoid the mods that entailed cutting up the air box and putting holes in the slider.. but im afraid that i may have no choice. I then tuned the carb my self and it is running better and the miss is less noticeable at 2 1/8 turns out on 92oct fuel. currently i had no choice but to put 89 in it and ofcourse with cheaper fuel its running a little rough again...
Since the bike runs fairly well except when cruising at light throttle, I'd just shim the needle a bit. If that helps, shim it a bit more.

It's been a long day, lots of pain with uhaul and getting cash from my bank (no locations here), but the yellow one is sitting in my garage right now . I ended up paying 3500 and the guy gave me his helmet since he bought one that matched his new bike. Thanks for the advice (everyone else as well) . I did start to think about just buying one new as I was getting frustrated waiting for them to appear on craigslist, but yeah I'm glad to have saved the money so I'll feel less pain when I end up getting a seat and luggage and other goodies.

It's gotta be frustrating to see one pop up in your neighborhood 3 weeks later, but don't forget you could have just as easily waited months without seeing one.
