haven't followed closely enough to know if you have a single petcock tank, or dual....or whether you have an inline fuel filter.

if you have a single line and a filter, it's possible you're not getting enough gas thru the line when running WOT or on the main for long periods.

When I run a fuel filter I use the large inline filters that allow a decent flow rate

I had a similar incident on my first shake-down ride just on Monday. After fiddling with it yesterday, decided the fuel filter which came with my new Safari tank wasn't passing enuff gas to keep up so deleted it. Will try her again in frew minutes. Spent most of yesterday solving a couple other minor details yesterday. (Disregard the grain coolant on the garage floor, my own stupidity caused the initial spill. )

Good news, the Safari tank went back on much more easily the second time.

Here's a pic of the mostly assembled bike:

It has a stock tank and fuel line. The only thing that has changed is the fleabay card.
I might take this new to me card. out and clean it. Just a little gun shy on fixing something that may not be broken?
I'm at a loss when it comes to jets.

Thanks again.

I have a friend who runs a shop out here, and he sells the tubliss system and he recommended going with a much harder knobby tire, and running it at much lower pressures. He said I'll get the same kind of traction but I can triple my mileage.

He recommended a Dunlop 908 front and a D606 rear, or a MT21 set.

What's your experience?

I have had a very good run with Bridgestone ED78 (120/100/18) and Tubliss so far the min distance has been 6500km.
On my holiday trip this year the tyre covered 8700km with a mix 20% slab, the rest gravel and sand, just note these are not DOT rated though.
I have used 8 of these so far and never had a puncture through the carcass of the tyre, a few pinch flats when using tubes, these are a tough tyre.
If it has to be a DOT tyre I would use the same as numbers, the MT21

I've got a 30 and a 60 (if I recall correctly). Awesome light. I seldom ever run them on "high" usually with the dimmer set at 50% as they are to bright...

Sanjo's unit, from ADVMonster. Here's the link.

John is one of us (probably more than me. ) I have his lights on this DRZ and on my Honda ST1100. Well worth the price and great customer service.

That fairing is mounted really high? Is there a reason for that other than preference?

in my experience, the 606 is a horrible tire in dirt unless it is bone dry, hard packed dirt. the TMII, on the other hand, is the best DOT knobby rear in dirt (the front is horrible). so, going from a TMII to a 606, i think you are likely to be very disappointed.

however, as you have found out, the TMII is probably also the least durable DOT knobby on pavement.

i have found the pirelli XCMH rear to be a reasonable compromise in the back. it is not as good a dirt tire as the TMII, but is way better than a 606 in dirt. it also handles pavement about as well as a 606 and lasts about as long as a 606.

(btw, the XCMH front is the best DOT knobby front going by far. it handles dirt like a real dirt tire, handles on the pavement almost as well as a 606 front, and lasts twice as long as a 606 front.)

I keep hearing a lot of good things about the XCMH. I also heard a lot of good things about the B'stone ED77 and ED78, I know they're not DOT approved, but that doesn't bother me. I have been very happy with the TMII, it just doesn't last long enough.

I tried the front XCMH, and it's a great gripping tire, u won't be disappointed. I ride 90/10 in favor of dirt, I am using Pirelli Scorpion Pro All front, Maxxis Desert I/T rear (120-100/18) this set up has been working good for me after trying bunch of combination of tires. TMII is great tire over all, you'll ride like a champ in deep sand and soft terrain leaving all ur buddy riders behind. I always keep 1 or 2 trackmasters in my garage as spare the only downfall is that u must keep it away from black top or u won't see much mileage out of it (although it's a DOT tire ??? ).

Yeah, my rear is shot after 600 mixed miles, about 75/25 dirt. But even being shot I did some riding in loose moon dust and it still kicked ass.

My mechanic has a D739 rear he's going to hook me up with, (it was actually recommended by the guys at Tubliss as a great tire to use with their system) I just have to figure out what front to use with it. My mechanic is recommending a 908, but they're expensive. I might go with the Pirelli instead, it seems a lot more cost effective. I know I'm going to love the 739, because according to the distributor they're discontinuing it.

Picked up a low mileage and pretty much bone stock SM a few weeks ago. I've been having fun "tweaking" it. Really liking it so far.... just wish the weather would improve so I could get a few more miles on it before winter. Nice and torquey compared to the 250's I'm used to riding.
