Makes it easier to remember in 3 weeks time when my plating comes back.
I need some carb help guys, I recently installed a Mikuni TM40 and am having problems tuning it, the bike won't idle below 1800 rpm, as soon as it drops below that it sputters and quickly dies, the idle also hangs when I let off throttle, it will hand around 3000 and then very slowly drop. I have played with the idle adjustment and the pilot screw, also put in a larger pilot jet but I am not having much luck. Anyone have any ideas on where to look next?
You should take it off - give it to me
I would but you're in Souf Efrica, shipping you be a bitch.
whats the easiest way to fit a keyed ignition? Bike needs to go for road worthy and I doubt they will pass it without.
I have one on my bike - I can take pics but everything is in pieces right now
Try putting a bigger pilot jet in I run a 27.5 pilot and a 140 main jet. Your bike sounds like it is leak on the pilot. Check the throttle cables for slack.
Hey guys , this has probably been asked before but i just installed bar risers, i tried to re route the cables but it only worked for the clutch, the decomp cable is getting caught when i turn my bars to the right. Does anyone know if theres an oem decomp cable.from another bike thats an inch or two longer. I dont want to buy custom cables . Thanks in advance
I rerouted mine like this
Honestly that will probably work but i have ocd about dumb stuff like that, itll annoy the heck outta me but if nobody knows of another cable that will work ill do that
I understand. That was a middle of nowhere fix that I have been to lazy/cheap to rectify.
I don't, an ignition key's not mandatory - only a kill button which I presume you have.
Dried blood on the tank and handle bars will keep people from stealing it too, maybe scatter some spent shell casing around the scene, a little yellow crime scene tape, the bike isn't going anywhere.
meh,my indicators on the pig is dead. I've got a broken rear turn signal too. Could this be the reason that none are working?
Yes, most likely,
padlock (through the rear disc rotor) > keyed ignition
Here is what I use. Stock Honda switch.
