Wow! You even spelled everything correctly!
Finally got a chance to get the old Avon's off and put my TR8 Battle Rally tires on the pig! No time to ride yet, but I can't wait to try these things out!
I have been well pleased and very satisfied with the improvement in post quality and especially with the performance of the MS Word spell check tool.
Okay... either Fritz has had TOO MUCH to drink, or TOO LITTLE... I can't tell which.
Hey this is a PG thread:eek1
My experiences as well
Thanks for the video.. Looks cold! I rode to work the other day.. 6:30am.. 27 degrees.. 30 min ride.. No heated grips.. Not fun! But the 55 degree afternoon ride home made up for it!
What setup is that over your handlebars? Is that the manrack-headlight-brush guard/rack (can't remember right name)? What's the bag?
Used to use pledge on my Wing. It was interesting that it was supposed to repel dust, but I found it attracted it. Must be their way of selling more Pledge I found the turtle wax ice spray detailer a much better solution.
I prefer the Turtle wax vinyl and leather conditioner for the seat, or the 303 protectant. But most the time the XRL is just dusty
I was just contemplating this the other day when installing the Q4 on mine.. I initially went with the forward mount because that's where my white brothers was mounted.. I have since switched to the more rear mount.
I guess if weight is not an issue you could always get a spare and use both mounts to increase the strength.. Not sure if it would be worth it though.
My FMF Titanium4 came with two clamps , an extra bolt and a 3/4 " spacer for the rear.
You bet I did! Are you saying I shouldn't worry too much about it with the ZDDP in there?
Harbor Freight stand, I think it was $150 shipped (on sale). So far it's been great.
Just to add to the O2 sensor discussion...
Note that the difference between the narrowband and wideband is the addition of the "pump" mechanism which requires a controller for the sensor, thus making the wideband sensor more difficult to DIY unless you are quite good with electronics.
Here is some excellent information about how 5-wire (wideband) sensors work. They draw oxygen from the atmosphere through the wiring harness:
And the Megasquirt guys have some more info on wiring a wideband sensor here:
No, just checking that your following CW's cam break-in directions.
Two ounces is what I used IIRC.
Although I never bothered breaking in a Mega Cycle cam. Just started the engine and went riding. Who knew??
Also all the safeties can be found to come together within the headlight enclosure. However, if you're getting power at the CDI unit on the black/white wire (ignition, kill) and the green/white is at ground potential (neutral, stand) and still no spark, that eliminates the switches and safeties as problems. A light bulb on the black/white to ground can check for solid power while cranking, while a DVM on the green/white to ground should show less than a volt DC.
Would be handy if the kill switch set to 'off' also would impede cranking... alas, not so...
And now, you know.
Reminds me how we used to take assemblies with boards to a special lab to have them tested on the "vibration table". They had to pass a certain g-level acceleration in various axes over a specific timeframe in order to qualify for certain standards.
Right on. I haven't removed my JT F1307 15T XR650R C/S yet, but I'm expecting similar results to yours.
I have the original "q" exhaust...it`s been mounted with the mount in the forward/hidden position for 25k miles and since 2001.it`s more than strong enough.i just purchased an NOS Q2 and intend on mounting it the same...i think it looks cleaner and supports the pipe better...
Don`t recall ever repairing one for you Fritz......actually i owe you one for free.......so shut the f up
I don`t want to repair them anymore unless the owner can`t do it themselves..that`s why i put the thread up on TT so people could repair them theirselves.........
I charge to do it now...a whole whooping 25 bucks and that includes return shipping........let`s see you do it cheaper.......
Curious to hear your thinking on supporting the pipe better. Where is the center of gravity on those? I know on the old Supertrapp can with attached pipe that I've been monkeying around with for awhile now the center of gravity would end up being pretty close to where that front mount is, so from that standpoint I can see your logic. I can also see the advantage of not having a bunch of weight hanging behind the mount point. Would love to hear your thinking.
