I can't make an all day ride tomorrow.
Shoulder is still healing.
No problem catching me tomorrow, I'm riding that old slow buell
We wont make you sign a contract for all day, you can cut out when ever you need
Did you clean all of the KLR's out of the airbox?
But I, sir, am no quitter! Lol. And I mean, hey, once I'm there I might as well stay.
Yea I thought the buell motor was wore out but it turns out the air cleaner was clogged with KLRs
see you in the mornin ,bob. riding the old klr,so don't get too close...i'd hate to clog the filter
I've said it before and I'll say it again... Honda is the King of small engines. I have a 1998 Honda XR 200 that has been sitting in a storage unit for at least 5 years. Today I emptied the old gas, cleaned the carb, put in fresh gas, and it started and ran like a new one on the first kick. Now my new daughter-in-law has a dirt bike to ride with me and my boys!
I was a little bummed this morning after breakfast that I couldn't go riding today, but the good news is I think I have my diesel issue figured out. Just have to wait on a part and get it back together. So maybe by next weekend I'll have it back up and running.... Still bummed about the riding thing though. Lol
Any of y'all going to the Arkansas 500?
Since Switch loves to talk 4wheelers on the 2wheeler forum, I figured I'd chime in... Finally started my overhaul project with a lotta help from Rev Jeffrides of the Church Of Preventive Maintenance...
Rev said these are probably the worst carbs he's ever seen! :eek1 One has green crud in it that had eaten the diaphragm.
11 years of mud and muck packed under the fenders and in the radiator grill... :huh
I wish it was that easy. My 4wheeler has little nooks and crannies that you can't get to with out partial dis assembly. This is the first time I've stripped it down like this. I always hosed it off, but that just gets the top side and fenders. Not the radiator, engine, under seat, etc.
dealt with that issue before. that's one of two reasions I dont like newer quads, the other is they have got to big, and hey yes it has 4 wheels but when it comes to working on the motors info is info right.
I want to, but like last year, it falls on my sons birthday. No way could I stand the hell I would be put through for missing that! Well, I wouldn't want to anyway (although I did try to talk the family into turning that weekend into a fun for me, fun for Supahkids birthday last year).
Ain't that the truth. I grew up on 125's and 250's. They were 2wd and I never remember getting one so stuck it took more than some pushing or maybe a shovel to get it out. They went anywhere we needed to go and when they rolled they weren't so heavy that they would kill you (unless you really screwed up).
Last one I rode was a Can-Am 800(?). Felt like a squishy Suzuki Samurai, but with more power and less roll cage for when things got squirrley.
I cut off the cigarette plug off my Airman pump and am wiring in an SAE plug so I can plug it in the SAE that I'm using for my Battery Tender. Is there a rule of thumb for which wire is positive in wiring? Both has white lettering on the cord and I didn't know if that was used on the + or - side consistently. The pump works either way but I don't know if it would hurt the pump if I reverse the polarity.
Can you see the motor to see which way it's turning?
Without seeing it its hard to say... If its a series or shunt wound motor, shouldn't make any difference unless there are electronics involved... If its a permanent magnet motor, the direction will reverse and then it will depend how it's connected to the pump.
