Here's a pic of mine after a little 50 foot or so slide on the concrete.


I haven't replaced the tip. The arm straightened out with a simple crescent wrench.

For replacement shift lever only one to consider IMHO- The cleanspeed.

Cheers

I think the original post has a typo --- the CleanSpeed replacement part is the rear brake lever.

D'OH Yeah you are right. I do believe the pics & links take care of that issue.

Engine noise

So, the other day, I pull over to get some gas and as bike revs slow to idle, sounds like I've got a bag of loose bits floating around in my engine. Kill the motor, and as it starts, sounds like I've got some cam chain slap going on. Noise dies down, but if I blip the throttle, can hear all sorts of pinging noises as the revs drop back down to idle. No choice but to limp home, and no noise at constant speed. I'm thinking it might be my tensioner/cam chain/guides/rockers (bearings). Anyone got any thoughts before I pull it apart? Around 21,000kms on the clock

Steering stabilizer

Picked up a 09 last fall and am presently modifying and farkleing.I ride 50/50 on off road.I am planning on doing the tat next summer.The question I have is -do I need a steering stabilizer and what are the benefits. I have owned several bikes but never one equipped with a stabilizer.

PL,
Steering damper is really only of benefit when riding off-road and deflecting front wheel off rocks and stumps....or in deep sand....not needed for general 50-50 unless in those conditions..... IMHO

I'm guessing you haven't had the surreal experience of an 80mph tank-slapper?

Hey Cyborg,


Thanks for all the info on the switch. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with as the best option. Not too concerned about the 0 setting, but a simple solution to access 1, 2 and 3 would be great.

And like others have said, if you build it, they will come.

Does this help any?




Maybe you can save it and zoom into the pins.

I looked through this image, wiring diagrams for an 08 990 SD and an 08 690 and didn't find any reference to it. If someone knows where the plug is and the exact bike it came on we can probably cross reference it. Possible the pins are not in the connector for the instrument cluster for other models also and the proper pins just have to be figured out.

Correctamundo.......cuz I have a Scott damper on the 450 and
690.... .....cuz I like to think I need it for the low speed tank slappers

And I don't ride like an idiot (most of the time):

Thanks D2B, I grabbed the image, but it's too low res to make out any detail. I'll PM you my email and maybe you have a higher res image you can email?

Replied. Found with Google. I bet a request up in Orange Crush could get you what you want.

Sent from outside my mind.

I find that I turn the damper off in the deep sand. Dunno. Maybe it's just that all we seem to ride in Florida is deep sand, but the bike floats around in a more predictable manner with no dampening. When it's set up higher it seems like it's fighting what it wants to do.
