I will check possible air leakage today as suggested and can probably check rear spark plug color too ( I hope I can remove spark plug without removing airbox).

I would suspect leakage too.

I pulled carbs apart yesterday and found that rear float height was only around 2mm, but H2W suggested 3,5mm and front carb was spot on 3.5mm.
I found little dust inside rear carb boot too, I'm not sure, did this happen during installation or was there an air leak. Checking with cold start spray didn't show any leakage and spark plug was brown color too.
Anyway, after adjusting floats and cleaning boots everything seems to be ok again. Thanks guys for the help!

Hey all,

So my SE has me stranded, well not totally I have someone coming to get me and luckily I'm not too far from home.

So anyway I'm posting a link to
the part pic that may be the culprit and
was hoping someone could tell me what it is
and why it's buzzing when I hit the starter button?

Sorry for the bad iPhone pic, but I'm posting from it
all I have right now.

So it's the part right behind the batt
with the 2 thirty amp fuses on either side
of a white 4 blade male insert.

Thanks in advance, obviously when I get
home I can get a good look at the fiche online
and order a new one.
But I'm bored sitting here waiting for my ride so
I thought I would post.

Any insight as to why it died?

dp,


That connector is protected by the main fuse, which protects all the power stuff on the bike.

First, push down on the large, white connector and make sure that it is seated. Pull the cover off the bottom fuse (in your picture)...the one closest to the left side of the bike...and then pull the fuse. If it is blown, the one next to it...the one closest to the right side of the bike...is a spare. Pull the cover off of it, plug it where you removed the first, and see if it gets you rolling.

If it blows again, very quickly, you may have a greater issue.

Good Luck...

Thanks WP, back home now.
My ride wasn't too far away.
Appreciate the quick reply

The fuse is good and I can hear the black box the 4 blade white connector inserts
into buzzing when I hit the starter. Good fuse and solid connection with the 4 blade.

So from here I assume I just need a new "black box" going to hit the parts fiche
now to see what exactly that black box is and how much it will set me back...

Thanks again.

You got it, hope it's nothing more.
Anyone else ever fry one?

Found it online for $47.

Thanks again WP.

Fried the starter relay for some reason, luckily my dealer had one for $45.
Going to pop it in later today.

Did you test or bypass the relay to make sure the starter is still ok? Dan's idea was good too, have you charged and load tested the battery?

Right side axle block...

Does your right-side axle block cant/turn (clockwise) when you begin to tighten/torque the rear axle nut?

If so, do you set the block at the same space as the left, and then just allow it to turn/cant?...or do you try to estimate and compensate for the expected turn?



When I go to adjust the chain tension (or remove the rear wheel), I will get the axle blocks evenly set on both sides (duh...). Then, after I torque the axle nut to spec., the right-side block appears to be set further to the rear (because it has turned, slightly clockwise, within the swingarm).

I have never been good at "eye-balling" the rear tire within the swingarm. So, I wanted to know if you guys experience the same thing, and how you set your axle blocks accordingly.

Thanks in advance.

Warrior,
After you adjust your axle blocks, insert a screwdriver or small wrench between
the Sprocket & chain. Then turn the wheel slightly until the chain is tight.

Then Tighten your axle nut.

This will keep the Axle / blocks from moving backwards

Mike,


I'm gonna' try your suggestion. I seem to remember hearing that piece of advice, somewhere, before. However, isn't that mostly helpful to keep the block from moving away from the adjustment nut? Will it also keep the axle block from canting?


I know that, theoretically, the block would have to move to cant. But, it doesn't appear to do that. It stays "pressed" against adjustment nut and cants (ever so slightly)...just enough for the position of the adjustment mark(s) to change.

Waddaya' think?...

I like seeing pics, so here goes.

This WOULDN"T help the Block Canting / Turning.

That's the difference in the swingarm grooved slot & the width of the block.

I dont think that small movement would be enough to miss-align the chain
