I was hoping to not get into carbs, but if that's what it'll take, I guess I'll have to look into that route. What donor bikes can I source the FCR? is it fairly straight forward to swap? I swapped the 17 tooth for a 16 last night. Two questions. First, the right side axle adjuster is pretty tight. I was able to back it out a turn or two, but it was SQUEEKY TIGHT. I didnt want to force it any more. Any tricks to getting all the way out to antiseize it? I'm thinking heat and some Deep Creep? Also, I picked up a new countershaft bolt and spring washer. As I torqued it to 44ft/lbs, it seemed to really crush the washer down. When I looked at the old bolt/washer, I noticed that the old one had a collar that holds the washer captive and would bottom out on the shaft, whereas the new one just centers on the bolt and the two pieces can be separated. Which one is correct?
i have the big nut on my counter shaft sprocket, i think they changed it in 05 so no idea on the 03
so a 39 fcr will give more bottom and a 41 will give more top, i think mine came out a YZF most and i had to make a custom boot to the airfilter
i think the ktm 4 stroke ones fit
one issue i had on hard landings, woops and bumpy hills the stock carb would bog down

after messing with mine a while a put a JD jet kit in it and it works good

Clutch.

+2.

I had to bump my DL1000's idle up a little. It would stall 75% of the time after warm when I pulled in the clutch coming to a stop, exactly like you're describing.

If you can remove the nearest screws in the swing arm - probably for a brake line bracket and a chain cover - bend the straw on the penetrating oil and insert it through the holes to spray where the tip of the adjuster bolt should be. Put dots on the straw on the side it is bent to at the distance that will line the straw up with the adjuster bolts. You can get water in the swing arm and corrode the bolts where they extend past the aluminum into the void making it a real pain to back them out. Be patient, keeping them lubed and slowly working them back and forth; they will come out eventually. It may help to clean and the exposed threads and hose them down with penetrating oil as you thread them in all the way to get the oil into the threads in the swingarm. Be cautious with the use of heat. It can help the process, but too much torch time = flowing aluminum.

The parts list shows a second smaller (maybe flat) washer between the sprocket and spring (bell) washer. I'm wondering if that smaller washer has deformed or corroded enough to lock the old assembly together and look like a collar to you. You may be missing a washer at the moment.

Update: from http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2472919&postcount=1

CS sprocket bolt and spring washer P/N 590.33.034.044 $4.25

I now note the parts diagram also shows a second washer between the spring washer and the CS sprocket, P/N 0125 100003, which I don't recall after the fact... Never fear; a lil' birdy tells me that this washer at one time may have served the same purpose as the shoulder that is machined onto the OEM (not all the aftermarket folks get this essential part right...) CS sprocket, which the spring washer conforms to for the proper tension load - and give - on all that hard-to-reach stuff on the other end of the shaft.

Anyone want to go to Peoria by way of Toledo?

Boredom is a powerful thing, so I will probably be running a bike from Toledo to Peoria Ill for a guy later tonight and overnight.

I'm trailering, not riding. If any of you are night owls and want to spend 13 hours cooped up in a Civic with yours truly, well now's your chance. I have cleaned out my PM box in anticipation of the deluge. I will cover one meal at the Denny's of your chosing.

Are you trailering? If not, post pics of the bike packed in the civic. I hauled dirt bikes in the back seat of rentals before, but never as small as a civic.

I read that, but some people use that terminology for hauling a bike in a pickup bed. That, and the fact that I don't see too many civics with hitches is why I asked. Have fun.
