Ffaaaaaaawwwwwkkkkkkk!!!!!

Just got my top end buttoned up after changing the cam chain. Adjusting the valves, got to the last one... dropped the gauge, and it dropped all the way in to the cover resting atop the valve.

AS IF that weren't bad enough, when I try to take a picture of it for you FF's this capital F spider comes crawling out of my engine!

Just on of them dang days



Bah, I'm sure the last valve is fine, and the tool is just aluminum and a little stainless foil... I think I'll just leave it in cuz I don't wanna buy a new water pump gasket What's the worst that could possibly happen it'll rattle around and might kill the spiders!?

Are you sure it is stainless? Might be something magnetic, at least the rivets/hinges, pivots for example. You should be able to take the cover off without destroying the new gasket. After all, I did reuse my 7K old one :-). The filters and oil temps will take care of the wildlife.

IMS Tank

Putting aside the fuel pump for a minute - does anybody know if the large IMS tank will actually fit on a fuel injected TE-610 or is there other stuff in the way? The thought is then to build a small sub-tank from aluminium and mount the fuel pump in that. Possible or not?
I am asking on behalf of my brother who has just purchased a new 610- it's still in the crate.

Turns out the arm is actually steel, and I got it out fairly easily with a magnetic probe, so no taking the cover back off

I have not physically tried it, however George (Up-Tite) says it's possible, and well, he's a freakin genius so I believe him.

Really?? I will hopefully be getting his pipe back from the ceramic coaters this friday. I took my whole system off and had them ceramic coat the whole thing in a color that looks like titanium. Kinda worried about the turn signal now. Thanks for all the info guys.

Man I would love to see this beast in person. How was it to convert over to the 8" BD? What kind of wiring and mounting had to be done? Also how did you mount your GPS? I've gotr the 550 and am wanting to do the same thing.

Thanks!

The install is easy. The only thing I had to do was remove the horn. Many guys simply relocate it.





I have a small plate mounted on the BD frame with a couple of ram balls.




This "mounting experiment" will get tested this weekend in Hot Springs, NC.


If all goes well, I'll have it welded....

George says it can be done, so does Bill in Salem. Someone just has to make up the subtank and mount ... which no one seems to have done. Bill has drafted plans for this, but as of yet it hasnt been made AFAIK

I would give a magnet a try .. it might work.

If I was doing it I'd seriously consider using a Honda Rancher fuel pump, I think it would be easier to do that than to fab and mount a housing for the stock pump.

You didn't have to use the AC wiring kit they talk about on the website?

Just a direct wire splice?

This is pretty much my plan as well.

What is special about the Rancher fuel pump in this situation? Pics?
