Yeah, Id prefer mine didnt have one.
Its a right b*&^d changing a tyre without one though... (unless youre lucky enough to find something to prop the bike up on... and it doesnt fall off)

You never feel the weight of the centerstand, it is so lowly placed its like its not there.

The truth of the matter is that, for me, 8lbs one way or the other will make no difference to my ability to ride this beast! And on a personal note, I could probably do with losing 8lbs off my stomach anyway

cheers

somebody, maybe in this thread said that SAS removal creates a hesitation off the idle. Well, I hadn't have it removed, but I had blocked the SAS tube exiting the airbox. I removed the blockage and I can confirm that the bikes is smoother off the idle. From now on, I am keeping SAS alive.

ps I have akras with inserts, 3rd clip and 2turns out on the fuel screws.

Easy peasy, either a fuel pressure regulator or a fuel pump that doesn't drain the engine as soon as it gets the chance(we've used the Mikuni DF53-136).

Have you checked the float levels? I had that problem on my Adventure a few years ago and found that the rear carb float level was set a bit too low. Also, which fuel pump are you using?

Fuel pressure builds up too high on the SE, if you're running in low gears (1st, 2nd) and not being able to gas it a lot for a while.

Fuel pressure regulator is the final answer. You'll want to aim at 0.08bar pressure in the fuel line with the regulator in place. Either that, or gas it more on the low gears ;)
