So thoughts so far are

1. Kriega overlander 30 and strap matt and tent across top . With rack?
2 . Giant loop coyote ( but i dont have passenger pegs so not sure on tie down points ) .

So with these options could or should i use a rack ? If so which one .. It would also be nice to have the rack on there for spares on day trips .

Some advice would be great thanks ..
I have the Wolfman E12 saddlebags, IMO just as easy to install and remove as the Coyote. I also am using the rack that Seat Concepts sells, don't know the brand. Its pretty beefy, and doesn't rest entirely on the sub-frame like the factory or ProMoto racks do. I did have to use some of my own hardware to make it work as the Seat Concepts rack is intended for the 510 (I think). Basically you just need longer bolts and some washers. Here is my setup for riding the Great Divide:

I moved the horn mounting rivets so the horn sits further back to clear the back of light. I have done three liights this way and have had no problems.
Can you re-post the pic please, it's not showing up...

But mine is blinking intermittently, usually once or twice when I first put it in neutral pulling up to a stop light. It's very random, leading me to believe it could be loose wires.

I found that the wires looked a little funky at the clutch perch, thought I had it fixed, but it's still doing it. I am now wondering if I should disable the clutch/neutral safety switch to get that function out of the loop, to check it off the possible problem list?

Can I get confirmation that tying the 2 spade connectors together at the perch switch (for now) will disable this function? I just want to be able to test, and not commit to removal. Does the neutral light "warning" function work if the clutch perch switch is removed from the equation?

Thanks!

Scott
I just completed the power up mod yesterday and now have a blinking neutral light also. I even unhooked the battery for awhile but still got it.

I'll have to take some pics and post up. I didn't use the lower mounting brace with the pegs that's been mentioned because of the fender brace giving you no flat surface to mount it to. Fore/aft stability hasn't been an issue.

Let me know if you figure anything out. I had recently installed the JT Tuner (Power Up was already installed by PO). But it did not blink immediately upon installation. I purchased a new temp sensor last time I got some parts - so I may throw it in to see if it makes a difference.

Mine is very random. Will blink once, maybe twice, but not at any timed interval. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all. Also, the fan is not running at all really, or not that I have seen, which is often mentioned regarding FI issues.

One of the members over at the Cafe Husky forum had some insight - but it doesn't seem to address the random actions of this neutral light.

2009 FI quick disconnect question

I was wondering if the 90 degree quick disconnect normally flows fuel when released. Mine flows tons of gas form the tank side when its separated.

I had my tank off last week and I must have not connected it properly because about 3 hours into todays ride it popped off and soaked my leg and boot. I'm enjoying the chemical burn from that,,,

I bought my bike used and it has done this since I've had it so I'm unsure of what's normal,,

Thanks

Mine definitely poured gas when I removed the tank. I haven;t had it fall off while riding since - but I will make sure I'm looking out for it now!

Mine just died again..

Gave the normal symptoms, the fan ran while motor running and bike would not start while choke/high idle lever was pulled. That is the second one in 7900 miles. I get the infrequent neutral flashing as well when this happens.

Thanks for the feedback. I was lucky that I was riding with a buddy that had a IMS 5 gallon tank that I could borrow some gas from.

I found it odd that it made it 3 hours before it let go. I'll defiantly check it better next time.

Are you saying your temp sensor went bad again?

I don't think they are not supposed to leak, but too many of them do anyway. I assume you are talking about the stock plastic quick-disconnects. I had better luck using metal ones on my Aprilia. It came stock with the same plastic ones and they leaked. The metal ones work great, but are a bit pricey.

Yes.

Temp sensor bad again and had all three symptons including the flashing neutral that went away after shutting off and restarting. I would start there first as its a cheap fix and if that is not the cause of your woes you have a spare...
