    I installed a different jet in the clutch tonight and now the stupid thing wont shift gears. Any tricks? I havent been able to start the bike yet, its totally tore down. I tried moving the rear tire, I took it off the center stand rocked it back and forth pretty hard...nothing. -pulling in the clutch does not move it into neutral.

    Maybe I should keep it, it worked great and if needed could be used as kindling?

    Here's a sneak peek of the new look:

    Suspension off to Perry Patton for overhaul and set up:

    Think I will powder coat the swing arm black.

    Thats the problem with too large a clutch oil jet. and oh, its not the bike who's stupid :deal

    Blip the throttle with the clutch pulled in and then try to shift gears. Of course you need to start the engine up to be able to do this.

    I wanted some longer pegs to spread the load across the entire width of my foot.

    I found some donor pegs and cut the tips off.

    [​IMG]

    Welded them together, squirted on some paint, and baked it in the oven for an hour.

    [​IMG]

    Installed on the bike & took for a test ride. Nirvana. :clap

    [​IMG]

    Net cost: 50 cents of spray paint and 4 cents for the electricity to weld & grind.

    Today I added rim stickers, KTM top case, went through all of the suspension settings, mounted the right mirror on the new bar clamp and off of the master cyl, added the orange frame protectors by the foot pegs, and installed UNI prefilter. Spring can't come soon enough!

    Just finished a major tune up.

    Get this...47k miles of romping and...

    -Waterpump looked great, no need for replacement but put in the CJ one anyway.
    -Valves were spot on, last checked at 36k.
    -Nothing leaks or squeaks.

    This bike has been ridden hard and maintained on time every time. It's comforting to have a bike that's built so well and can go the distance.

    Well done my Austrian brothers. Well done.

    It runs great now that is for sure. I want to go back to stock and hopefully map for a few more mpg.

    Stock horsepower is going to be plenty for me.

    First, why wouldn't you just pull the tanks with gas in them? Second, why syphon instead of draining it out thru the petcocks?

    crimped the new connectors. btw i cut off the stock wires from the alternator close to the conenctor to install the new Furukawa connectors.

    took care of the grounding used a new ring lug.
    [​IMG]

    For the positive connections from the R/R, i cut off the stock 2-pin connectors and used two separate bullet connectors from the FH020. Sorry but you cant see this clearly in the pic.

    Just got me a 2007 990 and was wondering if any of you recommend a good mechanic in the Los Angeles area. Looking for someone who might not be corporate anymore, has his own shop and can teach me a few things while working on my bike as i plan on taking her around the world.
    thanks in advance.

    I've had her for a few weeks now, but still haven't had to opportunity to ride it as we wait for the snow to melt. So, might as well get familiar with it. I had ordered a set of SW Motek crash bars, and a CJ's kickstand relocator, so took the opportunity today to mount them up. While I had it apart I went ahead and installed the battery tender leads as well. I also mounted the bars on the studs as recommended here in the forum. Fork springs are on their way, so she should be ready to go at the first sign of a thaw.
