The new r/r will not fit in the stock location due to the new connector hitting the coil. I relocated mine to the left side of the bike and simplified the wire routing.



From the mobile...

Well, ordered the Mosfet, now I'm grounded for 10 days or so being in Canuck land... I sure hope this isn't a lesson in spending money. .

Next time this happens, when you try to start the bike listen for the fuel pump prime noise when you turn the key on. If you don't hear the buzz, the bike won't start. Usually waiting a few minutes will bring back the fuel pump prime and then the bike will start. Read this thread. Your fuel pump needs replacing. Most of us run the California Cycleworks pump and some even carry a spare. I haven't heard of a failure of the CA Cycleworks pump yet. Cheers.

That sucks about your bike, wish i was closer and could give you a hand or at least pull parts off my working bike and see if that helps .
Also I am sure you are not a grounded type of man

In the meantime.. you could use just about any R/R to get you out riding. When mine failed in Tajik, I installed an R/R from a 95 kawasaki. It bolts up. Splice the wires and go ride. Its still going 15,000km later.

Pics would help. Several versions out there.

Not sure how to post pic, but it seems you remove the grab handles and it fit over where the handles will go COVERING the petrol filler cap, the plate has a lever you pull and it lifts up on a hinge system to allows acces to filler cap.

Top End Oil

Looking at PalmStates 690 above, I see an oil line off the filter cover on the right side. My 2010 does not have this. I assume it pushes oil up to the top end spraying the rockers etc.

Question, can the earlier models be retrofitted for this extra oil? Would I want to do this? Does this help alleviate the cam spalling of previous years?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Do the mount bars look like this?

+1!

2 oz's in a 908 and you are good to GO!!!

If your wheel fills up with mud, all bets are off, until the wheel is clean. Same with regular weights.

I even carry 2 oz's in my tool pack in case I loose all the beads from a flat.

Everyone says I am crazy, but I love the Dyna-Beads..

Rocker Woes

Reading the discussion of rocker issues a week or so ago and my bike being occasionally hard starting, I began to fear I might have rocker issues too (15,400 miles on my 2008). So I ordered up replacement rockers (they are backordered like others had said). Well I needed to check valve clearance (plus a ton of other maintenance things to prep for a trip to Ouray August 9) anyway, so off with the valve cover.



Some scoring on the outer surface of the rollers. The exhaust valves are outside the upper range (.008 fits, but .009 does not). Intakes are at the upper limit of proper range (.004 and .005). The side clearance of the roller is above .01 on both rollers. Anyone know what the side clearance should be?

Hope I get my replacements before August 9.

These are great. I have them on my 690 and 990. Great to see exactly what is happening to bike voltage levels. You can see all of the indicator levels as you roll up to a stoplight with LEDs on, Euro light on high beam, Heated Grips and the dual fans start to run. Flashing green indicates RR failure. Fortunately haven't seen that one yet.

That is just an extension hose to an oil pressure switch for low pressure warning. The rally bikes had the switch on the filter cover, wonder why the added the extension hose. Not sure if the earlier models have wiring to use this function.
