Ordered from Power Barn already.
Hopefully the slow air-jet is the last I do with to bike as it seems to be quit good now with a 162 main. Don't regret the work to get FCR-MXed as it makes such an impact on drive-ability in my stop and go commutes not to mention the increased wheelie-ability. Now for that lingering RD400 project!
I ride a 2001 Honda xr650l ...Just wondering what you guys think. After riding fuel starts dumping out of the overflow tube... the very bottom one with the screw...it only stops when I turn off my fuel. after a few hours it stops leaking. Thanks Frank
finally got the Sutton Oil Cooler on, from my shakedown ride looks like temps dropped a good 25 degrees...not bad, I'm happy with it, great instructions and a really well put together kit. While I was at it put in 52/155 jets.....
thanks to everyone that answered my questions...
Your needle and seat probably need to be cleaned. I'm guessing there's some goo in there that prevents it from fully cutting the fuel flow once the bowl is full.
The screw on the bottom is the float-bowl drain and should be tight.
ok I made sure that was tight.. I drained out the bowl and now its seems to have stopped leaking..hopefully it stays that way.
DING DING. I did this, I replaced the stator and reg rec before relising it was the ground.
If you've been running ethanol, Seafoam really helps keep the carb from gumming up. I pour a couple of capfulls in all my tanks after a fillip
The field trick is to shut off the gas, open the drain, let all the gas out, turn on the gas, flush the needle, then close the drain.
You can also drain the bowl, attach a clear line to the drain, raise it next to the carb, turn on the fuel, and check the level in the bowl. Level of fuel in the hose=level in the bowl.
The real field trick is to bang on the carb with a hammer like tool not made for banging and get the needle to seat. Something that's on top of your tool kit and isn't long enough and pisses you off even more.
Smartphones or GPS. They're usually the handiest items. +1 for rubberized protector skins for peace of mind...
He said it was coming out of the bowl drain.
And the overflow leads to the bowl drain.
I didn't put on another 908 because I wanted to try the Metzler and then the Michelin Desert tires became available. I'm always looking for a better mouse trap. I did put a 908 on my Husky. I don't get as good of life from fronts as you do, I guess I brake too far into turns.
I am now running the Michelin Pilot 3's on my street bike. Been stellar so far. I ride the bike daily to work. 6K so far and I can just start to see a mild flat developing in center of rear.
Overflow hose is on the side of the carb.....
I hav the 908 on my rear. I have been running it the whole time I've been in Africa. I have about 7,000 miles on it and I guess I'll take it off after about another 1,000 to put a 606 on for a few long trips I'm doing later. I've not had a single puncture on the 908. Is 7-8k miles a lot? Was it worth double or triple most other tires? I don't know since it was my first, but honestly have no complaints. But I don't really know any better. I do fear hating everything else I put on after though.
Has anyone used Goldentyre from Italy? Considering a set of those on my 'new' 1994 I just got last week. Going to rebuild it and replace a lot of parts. It only has 5,500 miles but looks like it's taken a handful of really hard spills.
Oh. Yeah. That.
