Talk about a closed one, my back, my arms are still sore for saving the bike from doing damage to either truck or bike. Not a scratch on the bike and no damage to toyota tacoma.
When bike tipped over, the bike filled its cylinders with gas since i had not closed the petcocks so experience was starter locked up. rocking bike in 6th gear backwards finally allowed bike to sputter and start.
SO as priority one now that i already installed the kickstand relocator is to remove the smog emissions.
Funny on my previous 950SE had all emmisions removed by previous owner, so i did not pay attention on how the vent lines where routed.
SO it is actually pictures of the vent lines and how they are routed and if you install a one way vent or leave them "open"
is front hose 11" and rear 10"
I also ordered 3 ktm swingarm caps to cover the three holes left when removing the breather hoses from the airbox per a fellow adv'er stating the fit fine on holes and i dont want the " epoxy look"
Feels fine to have an addiction of orange crush
Any chance this bike has a Mikuni vacuum (pulse) pump??? If yes,,, then not turning of the fuel petcock would most likely cause the hydrolock.
The vent lines coming off the carbs just need to exit down through the bottom of the airbox. There are 2 on each carb,,,, one on each carb gets plugged and the other is as I said.
