I ordered my new pump right after that same batch came in. Apparently Service Honda ordered some extras... unknown if any of those are still in stock or not.

Likewise, it's working great.

My OEM pump never failed, but it's a 2008 so it might have. Didn't want to get left walkin' out of some remote area.

Yes, playing with the throttle on a lot of injected bikes make a difference before starting. On a BMW it resets the throttle position sensor. On a harley it well screw up the idol. When I was test riding mine, it would not restart. I turned the key off and on, opened and closed the throttle 3 times. Hit the starter, it fired right up. It now has 2500 miles on it and runs great.

I've never had to turn the throttle on my WR to start it... I simply turn the key on and hit the starter button. It would always fire up until yesterday when it wouldn't. This morning I went out, tried to start it just like I normally would, and nothing....it was trying to start, but never actually would. I kept trying and then started to twist the throttle a bit and it tried to start a few times, but then stalled. Finally it fired up and seemed to run fine. I'm hoping it's just the fuel pump, especially since my build date of 10/2008 seems to be in the range of problematic pumps.

Anyone have the oil drain plug copper washer dimensions handy? I'm getting a McMaster-Carr order ready. This is the first bike I've had where the bolt dimensions weren't on the 'fiche.

Lubing assistance

So while I have the wheels off is there anything I should check before putting her back together? Do the axels/spacers etc. get lubed?

Thanks

After everything is all cleaned up, just put a light coating of grease on the axle.

Put a thin film of high quality waterproof grease on the axle--this is for rust protection. The dust seals should also get a film of grease along the lip where they contact the spacers. Too bad they don't include a full service manual like they do with the YZ's & WR-F's. I recommend getting the Yamaha Service Manual, even though it's not cheap.

Dysco,

I don't have the dimensions handy, but I did find my McMaster/Carr order from back when I had a KLR650. These are the steel washers with a nitrile rubber o-ring built in and they are highly reusable. It's a package of 10 washers. The link below in the copy/pasted text from my order actually still works to take you straight to the part so you can see if that's the kind of sealing washer you want or not.

Fits my WRX's drain plug perfectly. Never had one leak a single drop... and never had to replace one again. One seems to last forever. It might not if torqued over a gritty or dirty surface; abrasion and all.

The original part number came from Wyman Wynn over in the KLR website a long time ago.

These washers are rated to 10,500 psi for fluids. I guess that might do it...

Seriously, it beats the hell out of a crush washer IMHO.

Rotopax 1 Gallon on Pro Moto Billet Tail Rack

There was a brief writeup on this somewhere. An inmate from the other website and I were unable to find it.

So here is my installation today. Link goes to the other site with full details and many pics. There are also closeup pics of the Rotopax lock; I know there have been some questions about that recently. It's some good kit.

One picture here as a teaser...

Not that it's rocket science or anything.

I'm diggin' that. I might look into doing something like that for my WRX. It would be nice to have another gallon of fuel on-board. I've cut it close on running out a few too many times with mine.

You do know that there is a side mount available as well? Helps to keep the CG lower.

GotoMojo,

Thanks for that.

I learned recently that they are stackable with an adapter. And that there is a similar looking "tool box" in the same form, same mounting from Rotopax.

So a white 1 gallon water pack is in my future... and maybe the tool pack. Stack one or two on depending on what kind of trip..

It's pricey, but I'm guessing it's well made.
