thanks bumpathump and racer. ...And i thought i was a genius for putting in a new spring

I think I may just leave it with no vacuum for now, just put it on prime when I wanna ride. Eventually I will get it fixed, but I've had enough trouble with this piece for now. At least it doesnt leak

OUCH! 33 miles per month max. I'm not small or old Zapp, but that's pretty light riding even for the backyard...

Please post a pic of your "Ruckus". Never seen one...

Don't bother. Converting to fuel injection is simpler...

Yes, that is the problem for me. I wear low top hiking shoes when riding and when in Florida wear shorts a lot. Anyway I fixed it good with the latest mod. I took the starter shield from Thermo Tec off the exhaust pipe and folded in into four layers encased in a piece of dryer vent pipe (thin aluminum). The width of this new shield is about 2" and about 10" long. I hose clamped this to the exhaust pipe near where the factory shield is and it works great. I can lay my hand on the shield now and it is cooler than the clutch case. When I am riding in Florida on the dirt trails with the temps above 75-80 for awhile, I previously had to keep my ankles away from the area of the exhaust pipe. Now I can keep my legs in tight to the gas tank for proper control.

Well if the shoe don't fit, don't pick it up!

That's just the miles on the '97.... It gets time-sliced with my other two... the WeeStrom and the Blue Goose 02 DR. Eenie Meenie Mieniee..... and there is a small space in my garage... just about right for another 2-wheeler.....

Just wait until your "old tough ass" squashes all that gell away from where your butt sits. Time will show you the weak points of that seat.

That gel seat ain't it, IMO. I've got a Corbin on order. Won't be here in time for a 300 mile ride this Sunday, though.

Well, I'm and old timer perhaps (47) but I don't recall ever being called wise overly much.


Actually I never went with the gel seat because other inmates warned me off it. I got a Corbin and I have no regrets.

The bucking that occurs at steady throttle on Dyno-jet-modified bikes is caused by too little preload on the throttle valve spring and also the turbulence around the open-top airbox. It can be minimized by simply adding about a 1/4" to 3/8" layer of nylon washers above the throttle valve spring, under the top cap of the carb. The washers should have an 8mm inside diameter and a 10mm outside diameter.
