One common issue is the vacuum line for the petcock or the petcock diaphragm. My line had a small split in it & fuel flow was impeded. Just throwing it out there......20 year old stuff on your bike 10-4 on the safety switches.
Nope, that's not it. I've got 2 tanks for my KLR - the one I'm running at the moment has the manual Yamaha petcock mod: http://www.eaglemike.com/Manual-Petc...LR650-mpcy.htm

One less thing to worry about... but I often forget to turn it off. Good thing the carb float needle seals tight.

On another note, yesterday the doc told me I had to sleep sitting up, to relieve pressure on the shoulder until the surgery; but my old lazy-boy had three old keyboards in place under the seat to take the place of broken springs, and wasn't really that comfortable to sleep in...
Today my sweetie talked me into getting a new "electric" Lazy-Boy... and I'm now in 7th heaven. :-)
WooHoo!
Cheers, and thanks again to everyone, Brian
Ick! Had to sleep like that for a while...it sucks!!!

Hey Ian, both my son and I were watching for you as we went by in the pickup!
Roads were actually a lot better than when I went through in 2011.
Cheers!

Have you been out there? It's not warm yet!!! This cold weather is hard on the wallet, too much time to go shopping for toys.
Anyone check out the R1200GS at Wildwood? Another 15 hp more than last year

Yes, but I bought a new oil filter for my KLR instead.

Tempted fate

Sorry to hear about your pavment kissing episode. Kind of wished you pointed yourself in this direction. May not have made a difference for you, but I've been here almost four weeks now and only had one visiter.

Hope you heal fast my friend.

Is it time to trade up already Greg? At one time I traded in my 2009 Jeep on a 2011 because it had an extra 1.5 inches of ground clearance!

No new BMW this year! I like to avoid new model years. The 2013 is water cooled along with engine changes. Lets wait and see.
I might go buy a new truck though...

My thoughts as well Greg. I've had way to many new models that give too much grief, usually snowmobiles though!
I did the new truck thing already (sorry Carl, not a Dodge) so need to stop spending for a bit.
Got to love that new Ecoboost though, sucks gas but goes like hell

That would be the ride to Eagan, wouldn't it?!! Sorry to hear of your mishap. Seeing the picture of the bike laying there in the snow reminded me of a scene from "Fargo"!

Glad to hear you're on the mend.

No worries - it's a modern town, with all the conveniences: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Barrhead_old_1.jpg
