I don't have a good pic on the Fuel/Air Screw ... it's located in front of the carb bowl, below and forward. In stock form it is SEALED. But that seal is easily removed. Highly recommend adding an Extended Fuel/Air screw to make easy adjustments. The stock one is very tricky to get to.
Search around here ... there are lots of tutorials on how to do this. Or check DR Index thread (first post on Thumpers forum)
10-40 is fine. Learn the basics and you will be Good to go.

Shoot me a PM if you need anything while you're here. I'll even buy the first round.

Yeah Derek, you're killin' me. Funny stuff. My stepdaughter is on a "..he always does that sometimes" kick which is driving me nuts. "Do you mean he's consistently intermittent?"

Oxford heated grip, safe keyed point to connect?

Anybody find the safest keyed place I can connect OXFORD HEATED GRIPS to?
I seem to have a problem, as hooked directly to the battery, the green L.E.D. stays on,---- Causes a slow drain on it.

It has a low voltage auto-shutoff, that is starting to make me regret purchasing these. Is it time to go behind the Headlight and find my keyed power there?

Link to this covered in the thousands of DR pages here?

Hello,

Thanks for the replies on the heated grips. Will be getting Symtec on Mon from HappyTrail as

AAAARGH!!
6 million pages on it and I will be lost. Hardly can screw in a light bulb.

Stay warm,

Sounds like the same problem I had. Got a replacement set under warranty from the vendor. Kept the grips but the rest of the gear was completely different. Havn't had a problem since.
ps. Mine are hooked up directly to the battery as they recomend.

Hello,

If you are going down the 5, I'll buy you a pint at the Harbor in Dana Point, Doheny Beach.
Julian Pie Co is in Santa Isabel but its best if you go 7 more miles up the mountain and have Chili and pie in Julian.
Chilly but usually sunny, great riding through town then south on 79, left on sunshine hwy, over pass and on to SD.
Beautiful ride, no traffic. Don't tell anyone.

You will love them and wonder why the heck you waited so long. Be sure to insulate the left bar. I like silicone tape, but folks use electrical tape, heat shrink, cork, ..... you'll get a ton of info when you Google.

Behind the head light cowl there should be an unused port you can tap into. If not behind the engine is one, right below the fuel tank. Just be be sure they are good, conenct your volt meter to it with the key on and read 12v, key off should be 0. If you have a vapor dash board, the stock speedo light makes a good keyed 12v point.

I use the speedo light as my 12v plug, and the unused port behind the cowl for my grips. Never had an issue.

extended fuel screw

Hey Ive been meaning to see if anyone has a problem with the extended fuel screw from pro cycle? I bought a jet kit with the extended screw included. I noticed right away that the shape was a little different. but installed anyway. After test and tune time, my first ride out with a friend of mine, I stopped after a few miles and the bike died. I started it back up and died again. fired it up and it would rev and stuff but would not idle...... my friend noticed that the extended screw had fallen out and luckily was laying perilously between the starter and the head. I rode back home and checked everything out and ended up puttin the oem screw back in as it fit more securely. the depth of the oring seating area was too deep on the aftermarket one and would not hold the screw in with tension because of this. anybody else have this issue???

I can't recall, but isn't there also a spring in there to maintain tension?

I have one (the one that came with the pro-cycle kit for the carb) and ... well... I haven't honestly checked to see if it was backing out, but the bike runs too well for me to even attempt to turn it.

Edit: just found a diagram

part number 32?

Any chance you lost yours on the replacement change-out? If you changed it while the carb was still mounted on the bike, the chances are good it sprung out or fell out maybe after you pulled the screw out - you may not have seen it.

I've used the trick described in #6 many times on motorcycles and also on on 1970-80's snowmobiles. Works like a charm in sub-freezing temps. #2 is also a good tip for engines that don't like starting in cold temps....

This is what I would do:
1. Adjust Fuel/Air Pilot screw OUT (rich) about 1 turn
2. Turn up Idle (one full turn on idle adjuster) Lower idle once fully warm.
3. Try to store bike indoors if possible.
4. Use 0-40 synthetic oil if possible.
5. Shorai batts need to "warm up" ... so turn on headlight for two minutes before attempting to start bike. Seems counter intuitive but supposedly works.
6. You could take a 1500 Watt hair dryer and run it onto the Carb for 5 minutes before start up. (if that's practical). Carbs like HEAT!
7. If not already done ... cover your bike!
