It sat out in the driveway idling for a few minutes before I got started... otherwise I might have gotten a few clumps of black cottage cheese out of it!
I was pleasantly surprised that the Shorai actually started it today. I started it a few weeks ago and it would not turn it over... had to kick it to get it fired up. Today the battery managed to crank it sloooooowly, but it caught after a few turns.

The reason I said to check is some folks buy the Dyna jet kit and just replace jets, sometimes the wrong size jets, and don't do anything else. You know the old saying, "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself". It applies here too.
Brian's name is right on the pics, why the hell are they called the 'Dave' mods?

AFAIK Va is the same. ask if you can do this or that...NO!

I don't know. Why don't you tell me. Hey, don't shoot the messenger. Everybody calls the mod by that name. I've never seen you complain before so...

From now on I'll call it Brian's mod. Better? That should thoroughly confuse all the "L" owners.

Well the time has come to part with my BRP. I am buying an 03 995i Tiger. I can work with someone on getting the bike to lower 48. The bike I am buying is in Oregon. Does not come with the bags or hedge clippers. I do have an Enduro trail stand that does come with it. I have quite a few extras: wheels, tires, and most stock stuff. Send me a PM or call. 573.528.5212. Asking 3000. 600 miles since it made the trek to see The Wizard.

Eh? Steering bearing adjustment nut specs

I'm finally getting around to reasembling my 04. The service manual calls for 0.7 Foot pounds torque(8.4 inch pounds) on the Steering bearing adjustment nut, Pg., 11-14, item #13.

I own both a foot pound and inch pound torque wrench. Neither one go that low. Whats the best way to get it set right. Just snug it until it is hand tight, then loosen a touch or...?

turns and doesn't wiggle = good
turns and wiggles or doesn't turn = bad.

There's your torque settings.

That's what I figured but it never hurts to ask. Thanks!

Dang. I wish I could. I would ride the tiger up for you and ride the L back!

Brown Falcon, are you near Hansen's Triumph Shop? Guy is going to bring it there for a once over. If you are nearby, could you look at it for your opinion?

It could be an adventure ferrying bikes!!

If I brought the bike down there would you be interested. Going to balance the cost of shipping vs. roadtrip before I deploy.
