Re: Stinky boot

After getting my bike back, I realized the horn(s) did not work. I'm riding through LA so I'd like the ability to alert texting drivers and kamakazee lane changers that I'm there. Second stage has been checked out and it works fine. Middle finger of glove will still rise above the others, making a n...

Re: Stinky boot

Hi Mellville, Are you going up to Bend? I think that's how some people go there. I may be able to head down and meet for breakfast or something in Ashland. Are you going to be on the bike or in the four wheeler? Please give me a call or a text so we have a way to make contact if that can work out. I...

Re: Stinky boot

Hi all, Got both issues fixed. Encountered another problem. The bike was not charging. I removed the instrument cluster and checked the "gen" bulb. The bulb was working. Next week, I will be riding the bike 800 miles. Diagnosing and fixing problems like these takes me a long time. I've got a lot of ...

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

Re, the wider vs stock size rear tire: Was the rear tire losing traction under hard acceleration? Was it slipping out in corners? Seems to me that the wider tire has enough downsides that I would stick with the stock width.

Re: Just barely got me home

Symptoms similar to what you describe happened to me. It turned out to be a ground problem. Under the tank, the coil(s) are held in place by four 6X1mm bolts. I think it is the front left one that was loosened. There are some brown wires that go under that screw, or, it could probably be any of the ...

Re: Stinky boot

Got some of those. I'll see what I can learn. With electricity, I fumble a lot. But eventually I usually can tell what is going on if it is not too specific.
Tomorrow morning I have to go up to Orange County so I'll stop by Irv Seaver's and buy a spare if they have one in stock.

Re: Stinky boot

I have to admit that I'm stymied as to how to do a test with a test light since both wires are ground wires.

Re: Stinky boot

On the most recent trip I took on this bike, and it was a couple years ago - have ridden it only a few times since, I pulled off the neutral switch wires in an attempt to cure a stumbling problem. (It turned out to be a ground screw up at the coils had come loose which made the engine stop completel...

Re: Stinky boot

I determined that the carburetor does not leak at all. My boot stayed dry the whole ride....I was checking it.
The engine is super responsive and peppy. It does smell rich when I am stopped. Is it possible that that carb is richer than it is supposed to be?

I'm not finding anything with that title, Chuey.

As for the Divinyls, I kind of like their "noise". I must be a damn liberal, or sumpthin'.
Rob, I'm pretty sure that's the line right before they show the RS.
