I'll see if I can get the wires more securely on the probes and in the plugs to get a consistent reading. The only two readings it held consistently were 15ohms and 0.L. Since neither of those values is between 170 and 256, I figured something was amiss. Any ideas on how I should go about getting a more solid measurement? I don't want to throw this off more than I have to

Just bolted up the 13t front sprocket with the supplied bracket from procycle. After taking it for a ride, this bike has become all that more versatile. Tomorrow is rampart poker run with non stop atv and some single track trails. No problem with the sprocket. Now if Suzuki had made it a six speed I would probably need one less sprocket.

Wouldn't say considerably better before but better, bike also has heaviest springs front and rear.

In a pinch

Guys, everyone talks of a temporary fix for the oil cool. Where do you get the fittings for this temp bypass? New cooler is in route to San Diego and I am in Moab.

I think you just need to cut the cooler hose ends off and put a piece of gas line in place to keep the oil flowing properly. Take the rad right out, leaving the fittings on the engine.

I didnt see one on jesse's site, and he carries just about everything that's important. I've got his high comp piston in there if that makes a diff, currently with the stock tensioner...

Open to opinions, advice, and recommendations.

Anybody installed a 40F0 muffler using jesse's billet bracket along with the Pro Moto Billet rack? They're both beautiful billet pieces, but they take up the same space at the rear mount! Any solutions? Pictures? I'd hate to carve either piece up, but I'm about to. How say you?

Yep, cut it off here:


And here, bridge with 3/8" fuel line and clamps. Wire tie the patch away from the header.

I really don't know how to help you hold the ends of some wires together, but I'm sure you can do it! Maybe bend the ends of the wires a bit where you stick them into the socket???
If the steady value does end up being 15 ohms, then it's likely that some coils shorted into each other in the pulse coil and it should be replaced.
0.L means open circuit which means infinite resistance which means that somewhere in the circuit a wire is broken preventing any electricity from passing through.

I had to chop a piece out to make it all fit. Works well and have had zero issues. I just mocked it up, scribed a line where I needed to get rid of some thickness and cut away. The nice machining probably helps to hold it in place, too. Sorry I don't have a pic of it finished but the mount goes under the PMB rack support.

Thanks TrophyHunter.

That's really the only option I was seeing. And was looking for confirmation before I started hacking away.

Thanks again.

I'm running the TL1000 pipe though I'm not sure if it's an R or S pipe, it seems to work ok

Fitted to my '05, crappy shot.



Fitted to my '99
