sP in a clay pit

I knew I was in trouble when I lurched to a halt. While the surface gave every sign of being ridable terrain, it clearly wasn't. Underneath the misleadingly safe appearance of the cracked surface there were 1 1/2 feet of the worst clay one will ever see. After 15 minutes of digging by myself I knew I was very stuck so I called my buddy and he came to my aid. We worked to dig it out for 2+ hours and luckily managed to drag the sP out of the pit on its side via his trusty Mazda 3 and a long interconnected chain of chains. I've learned my lesson this time and I'm never riding in there again!



The death pit sucked one of my grips off and broke a few other things, but yes I did ride it home like this.

MAJOR workout

Yeah, needless to say I haven't gone to the gym since lol. The mockups really coming along there. That's interesting what you've done to the tail section.

Six Sigma Jetting

I caved in and bought me a six sigma jet kit off eBay. I couldn't take the jerkiness right after startup anymore. The kit comes with three main jets, some shims for the jet needle, and a 5/32" drill bit (airbox mod). No pilot jet or pilot air jet though.

The carb looked pretty good when I took it off except for the main fuel nipple which turned out to be partially clogged with a leaf. I'm also attacking my petcock which will dump fuel onto the garage floor even in the OFF position. I will definitely post the results of the kit when I have time to get the bike dialed in.

Carb Kit

Nice. I may do the re-jetting before I get the bike back together. I already have a Hayabusa muffler for the bike, and the carb is going to have to be modified no matter what. I did one of those carb kits in my old gs650md (the original GS motor based Katana) and it made the power so much more linear. Probably a good idea on this bike too. Let us know about the install. Drilling out the vent hole is the hardest part.
As far as the petcock goes, I may just replace mine with a Pingel. If yours will dump gas like that, the vacuum mechanism in it has failed. I suppose it depends on how much they get for a new one. If it's $30 or so I would just get the stock piece. If it's around $100, go with the Pingel and never worry about it again. Cheers Y'all!

Installed tha kit

Much more responsive and I've also noticed that it's - the bike - is much easier to start.

To fix the fuel leak I lathered silicone all around the base of the petcock and tank. Hopefully, it will hold up.

Ride On!

LR turn signal

Does anyone have an oem left rear turn signal I can buy?? Doesn't matter to me if it's new or used.

Are there any particular websites I should check?

Cool2 Pictures

I uploaded a few more pictures of the beast onto photobucket, but this time clean and with a few upgrades.

I installed MSR Dominator Handguards (really quite a pain), Dirtskins neoprene shock covers, and a re-upholstered seat.

Lookin Good!

I can't wait to get mine done. I'm held up again, as I am moving my shop. That's all right though. Three times the floor space for the same price!

carb boot id's

just hoping someone has the carb off their bike. im needing the internal diameters of the rubber insulators front and back and the same off the carb too. and also the distance between the bolt holes. been kicking around the idea of a new carb. id rather not have to take it apart to get the specs. if one of yall that has one apart could measure those for me id sure appreciate it. sudco wants that info.

I measured the outer diameter of the carb intake/ outtake holes instead.
