    The SE was fantastic, not even a hiccup at 13K

    Just bought a 2006 950 SE with 75,000 Km.

    Doesn't look like it's been off road much and pretty standard apart from fly screen, hand guards and devil exhaust. Gradually going through and checking everything...

    Congrats and enjoy. Looks like the seat has been trimmed a bit. Also the chain looks a little tight to me.

    Well spotted Dirt2007. The seat was "professionally modified" at some stage - looks very well done such that you can't tell unless you know what the seat should loiok like.

    Chain tension - yes maybe tight, need to look at that. My manual says 15-17 mm slack with bike on side stand and measured on lower side in front of chain guide. Reading the forums shows a few variations on this so I might try aligning the two spprockets and pivot and checking the slack at mid point which should apparently be 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch or 13-19mm.

    It doesn't get anywahere near the swining arm which is another quick check I read about and suggests it is too tight...

    I've been thinking of mounting my new facet fuel pump to the bike (vs. tank). Has it worked well? any drawbacks??? (heat?)

    I've allways kept the pumps in the frame. Easier to remove the tank. When I yad the stock box, I had the pump bolted to the back of the box. Now with the TCM foam filter, I keep the pump in front of the fliter. No heat issues up to 28°C slow riding. We call that "hot" in Finland, you might see it otherwise.

    That's a great idea. So you just extended the wires, and fuel lines? I have the Rottweiler intake, so I can mount it in a similar location. Thanks for the feedback!

    You are welcome. And yes, extented lines and wires. I have also routed the lines so that they go straight up to the pump, so that I can lift the tank up for maintenance if needed.
    This might not work with normal fuel system but I have a return line in front of the fuel cap that flows fuel back from the carbs and keeps the level supposedly even on both sides of the tank. Even though the lower parts of the tank are not connected under the radiator. The main function of the return line is to keep the pressure down but I found out it has a side effect. This is still being tested, haven't ran the tank empty yet. 13.5liters is the biggest fill up so far, the pump was sucking air bubbles occasionally but no hickups from the engine.
