Numbutt-could you size you photos to next size down? It would save us having to scroll back and forth to read the text and see the details in the pics.

BTW, that's quite a laboratory you have there.

Pic sizing../airbox

Sorry guys about picture sizing but i am still figuring out this adding a picturre thing [photobucket ] and its a one- one- one thing at a time and i dont want to mess with anything till i figure it out !!
One thing i can say is thanks to Uller for the air box mod its a ripper. if u have a Safari tank. That damn left front tank mount could not be in a more awkward place if they tried. those tank mounts could conceivably be strengthened and slotted too .......
For those doing ULLER's mod it can easily be done with a hacksaw blade and yes the 1 inch hole behind teh rectifier if adequate to easily do the job. On mine it was benificial to widden the distance between the airbox mounts with a drift by about 3/4 mm ...now the airbox just ''glides in ''. no more Safari pull......

Thanks.
I'll let my friends know.

want to sell your stock handlebars?

does anyone have their stock Renthal "796" bars that they would like to get rid of? I've grown accustomed to the feel of the stock 690 bars and want another set to put on my GasGas. PM me with a price if you'd care to part with them.

The bike is dead stock, with about 1000KM. So it might be a lean mixture straight from the factory. I can't really tell.
Luckily I have another friend with a brand new 2012, so I'll probably get another chance to check it.
I had a similar sounding issue a few weeks ago with my 2008 Enduro. This problem (stalling after anywhere between 5 - 60 seconds) and hard starting occurred right after I gave the bike a good thorough wash with some of the body panels off so I can clean it up underneath stuff. I posted the issue and as a result of a suggestion, I checked the spark plug wire and plug cap. It turned out that I had a small crack in it that let water in. After drying it off, dousing it with brake parts cleaner, siliconing the crack and then installing it, the problem has gone away permanently. I don't know if you've checked yours but with the intense heat of Israel and these bikes, cracking in plastic and even rubber could very well be the culprit.

By the way, I am going to be in Israel in December and would love to do a bit of a tour on bikes. Do you know of any places that rent Enduro bikes? I will be centred primarily in Herzelyiah Pituach / Petah Tikvah but also heading south to Eilat and I can get my family to fly there while I ride down...

Anyone seen this happen yet? If so, what was the cause? Mine, on the way home today...

Ouch! What are you doing to that poor bike Fran?
Looks like a clutch issue though , shouldn't be a difficult fix, just going to need a bunch of parts.

That's a new one... was the clutch acting up before that happened? Perhaps making strange rattling noises like a fragment of something was circulating around in there? Luckily it is really easy to pull the cover off and I'm sure the cause will show itself once you do so. The cover is about $150 though and at least another $150 for a new EBC clutch.

Not sure exactly what happened yet. Definitely from the inside out. I'm not digging into it until I call the dealer on tuesday to see if I still have extended warranty coverage, or if it ran out 2 weeks ago...

My suspicion is that one of the plates broke in a way that it could partially come out of the basket, or one of the fingers on the basket got bent somehow, and wore through as it rotated..

I'm relieved to hear that the cover is not that expensive, I was expecting much more.

The clutch started acting up a few miles earlier, I stopped, let it cool down a bit and tried to nurse it home. There was a bit of a squeaking noise happening most of the day, but I could not narrow down where it was coming from. I thought I might be in need of a new throw out bearing.
