well a little good news...

changed the oil and gave it some nice smooth shifts up and down and did not use any additive...

will change out again in the next week or so...maybe the flushing will help

and turning in my air screw in a half turn helped with the cold start...it DID NOT DIE once it fired which is a good sign...

instead if dying 2 or 3 times after firing now it idled steadily

so a step forward for those that want to know

so well see what happens with the slipping clutch after a few rides..

wish me luck

christian

crankshaft primary gear direction?

Gday Guys,
Can someone please tell me, the crankshaft gear that drives the clutch basket has a bump/marker on one side, which way is this supposed to go , bump inward or outward?

Thanks for your time,

Graeme

ayeah, I'm pretty sure some of you are familiar with this technique but for the newbies, here is a neat little trick to change the colour of your fueltank (and other plastics) without having to buy it new...

Thumpertalk has a thread about this, but here is the TL;DR version made by a friend of mine.

The gas tank color-change brings up another question. How does one refinish
side panels, fenders, plastic bits? Tried sanding out the scratches, but I just get bigger/more scratches.

If you use a steel wool scourer, it does a better job than the boxcutter blade..and a hell of a lot quicker too!!!

I tried the heat gun. Doesn't help much.

Wet sand paper worked great: 100 - 200 grit (to get out big scratches, if you don't have big ones skip) then get higher grit gradually to 2000 or more. Then go over with the heat gun for kicks (seemed to make it a tad shinier). Then clear coat.

Even with the clear coat it's not factory shiny but I prefer it that way. As long as it has a bit of gloss it looks good.

A lot of work but side plastics are expensive on the 650. For other fenders I'd just buy a UFO one.

Someone should test out that tank dye and tell my how it holds up. ;)
