Let me know when you have a final link so I can correct it in the Index.
I humbly sit here corrected.
Are you sure you don't know my wife?
I"m running the Acerbis tank, stock petcock, and stock BST.
I've never had problems with it flooding when I lay it over. I wonder if the stock petcock prevents it flooding in this case????
We all make an occasional mistake, no big deal. It's when you argue with the correction, that's when the problems begin (provided that correction is correct). My marriage started failing when the ex started laughing 'at' me instead of 'with' me.
I think it makes a huge difference, once the engine is off, so is the fuel supply. A local DR rider, riding solo, got himself off the side of the jeep road and it was fairly steep. He finally dropped it to the downhill side with a manual petcock and he couldn't reach it as it was on the bottom side. By the time we were able to get a rescue crew back to the bike, the engine was full of fuel, crankcase, cylinder and airbox. I was amazed at the amount of fuel that gushed out of the airbox when he removed the cover.
If only the petcock was on the opposite side of the problem.
When I flooded mine as mentioned last page, I had fuel in the air box. Not a lot but you could see it in the low point drain bulb. A good thing to check after you lay it down.
I was unable to get to the petcock either which probably led to the bad flooding. The front of the bike was pointing slightly down hill too.
If it falls to the right the fuel level is probably lower than the petcock opening. No gas would flow to the carburetor while it's down.
Edit: I see that @cyberdos beat me to it. Clever rascal.
In this one example, I was actually referring to BigUn. It was late, the lights were dim, it had been a long day, the beer looked delicious... I was quickly snapped back to reality when her Fingernailsonachalkboard Voice cut into my clouded mind. If she would just trim her mustache, lose a couple hundred pounds and stop being so darned mean she might actually be... nevermind. Beautiful and Sweet are probably not in her future.
That's why I always just pick the bike up immediately... and I suppose the vacuum petcock does have that one advantage.
if you have 2 hours to kill, this is a pretty good way. even though EveRide is kind of a KLR apologist... lol
I tried to flood my bike today.
and @Lil' Steve tried to kill his Teryx.
But that's usual treatment for that poor thing.
it could be the bikes i hear talking late at night..
my bedroom is off the garage..
there's 3 other empty rooms in the house..
but as they say.. when it comes to real estate - location, location, location..
Best dirt tire for the front of the DR? I don't care about Tire life and I don't care about Road characteristics. I pretty much only take my Dr in the dirt.
Well its been a few weeks but thanks to Procycle and others my DR is back together and running fine.
New stator, charging coil in the OEM one went bad. Great to have an old friend back, with OEM 15/42 (first time in over 10 years) on a 520 chain it will do over 60 on the highway and not sound like it is going to explode.
Is still a fun ride. Did about a 100 mile test ride today and all is great and 47 MPG.
You can make it. It always looks deeper than it is!
Speaking of this little screw. Does anyone make a replacement in socket head to replace it, mine only works with vice grips now.
We both failed, but it wasn't for lack of trying.
Yeah, I really like the Scorpion Rally front. tire. Cyberdos likes his Millville? front tire.
