just a L bracket mine was from a spare Honda XR/XL indicator mount.
Hey, V2, I was looking for these exact photos over on KTMTalk and they're all gone. It was a beautiful spread. What happened?
looks like some simple bar stock is in my future....
sorry about that my photobucket account got full so sorted out my junk from good while it was down. so all my pics got moved around & broke the links on here , tlzone , tlplanet , speedzilla , phil motorcycles , ktm talk , thumper talk , af1 aprillia etc. was just too much to fix
yeh mate simple 30min job
Understand. At least it was only small tragedy. That's too bad (for me ), though, as your SE build thread has provided much inspiration and many ideas. I should have been quicker. :eek1
I went with the front of airbox option with the CPR. Hoping to use the other area for an underseat storage box later.......
My OEM stock fuel pump lasted 14,203 miles
It had been very weak to prime up when switched on the last few months, so I knew its days were limited
I replaced with another OEM stocker.
I'll prolly put a Dr Bean's kit in my Old pump I took out
why waste money & time all time on these electric pumps ? powercell's mod with the mikuni vacuum pump was the best. thing do it once & for get it.
I'm not sold on any Aftermarket pumps & most of em puts out Way Too Much Pressure.
The Vacuum Pump may be ok
Anything over 1.5psi is OverKill IMHO.
personal experience i been using the mik vacuum for near 3 yrs now not one problem so far.
just add an easy to reach fuel tap see post 1891 (yellow lawn mower fuel line tap)
Never could get my bike to run in the Whoops with a vacuum pump....????
NW, what pump did you end up using ?
I have never heard of a dr bean mod failure, but have heard problems with all other alternatives.
Also, by taking away electric load from the R/R (ie vacuum pump) doesn't that mean that it may get even hotter?
The bottom end of my pump crapped out with the Dr bean kit. Not the fault of the kit, but just shows that the pump isn't perfect once installed. Running a facet now. Didn't want to deal with a manual fuel shutoff.
8k miles....all good
Same in my case.
Electrical erosion isn't the only failure mode.
The internals of the pump can corrode and the piston can stick. In this case you tend to get intermittent failure symptoms. A sharp hit to the pump will free it up for a little while... maybe enough to get you home (as was my case).
Facet was the replacement here too ...
My oem contacts blew up after around 40 kkm. 1st Facet died after just some 20 kkm (probably due to operation with empty gas tank). 2nd Facet has now 60 kkm and just works and works and works
Is there any case that the facet does not corrode due to alternative placement?
Question mainly aimed to river crossers.
Rottweiler Air Filter went on today......
Nice change...better throttle response...the access and dirt bike like filter cleaning....very nice...
