I'm getting old, I think, I seem to now prefer the smooth response of a CV carb. and the smooth ride of deep, plush suspension. Sonny Boy!!!
The instant on is mostly "jerk" . A very slight hesitation followed by a catch. That's not acceleration, though people think it is, but it can help with creating a momentary "steepness" in the torque curve which is good for lofting the front wheel. A pumper and a CV don't have to be mutually exclusive, either. That wheelie jerk is good for that, wheelieing, but not for traction. The reality is your wrist shouldn't monitor air to the motor. Only the motor knows what it needs. All a rider can do is request a power amount. That's what a CV and a fly-by-wire throttle do and why those air-fuel monitoring methods have way smoother torque curves (which allows a rider to know what they're getting) than any device where a rider's right wrist controls the slide/butterfly. In Moto-GP all engine tuning efforts are about a smooth torque curve, the horsepower wars are over. In the end, if electric bikes can ever get the energy capacity thing sorted the IC will be done (and I LOVE ICs). Want better snap from your CV machine? Get more vacuum. My CW motor has crazy snap.

So I post at 12:34, and within minutes Barron, Christian, Spud have the same response. Steve comes in with an actual picture of what to do.

Sure enough, the holder had jumped ship, leaving the o-ring in the side cover. Buttoned it all back up tonight (and threw in an XRR c/s sprocket install for good measure) and the thumper lives to thump another day.

Fritz - I'm sure it jumped into a shop rag and hid there until I grabbed it to wipe down the back. Or as Barron says, Gremlins...

I can't thank you guys enough.



One of these is the oil tube, the other is the gremlin...

Also, what's a good replacement for the chain slider on the bottom right behind the front sprocket?
Spud sells a roller for this position chain slider. You can also cut one from just about any plastic you can round up that is thick enough. Thick rubber works well also.Just cut it out with a jig saw. Drill hole first. It does not need to be a perfect copy of the OEM.

I would let us have a crack at your Audi. It could have a similar aflection. Only long, hard test drives will tell.

Off topic, but yeah the direct shift gearbox is pretty tight, paddle shifters and all. That's an A3 2.0, small hatchback. But it has two clutches, and I'm gonna guess they aren't as cheap as the Tusk I just put in the piggy. I just like its gas economy.

Sir Spud must be asleep. Check these links:

I've long wanted to drive a dual-clutch gearbox like that. Hell, Honda has them in two bikes now. All that engineering energy could have been put into us getting a new L Seriously, I bet Honda makes a greater percentage on the L than maybe any bike. How paid for is the R&D and tooling?

Off Topic? Like there is one????
That thing is a death trap. It's all over the internet. You had better let me check it out before something happens.

You better check to make sure there's a paper air filter in there too.
