I don`t want to repair them anymore unless the owner can`t do it themselves..that`s why i put the thread up on TT so people could repair them theirselves.........

I charge to do it now...a whole whooping 25 bucks and that includes return shipping........let`s see you do it cheaper.......

That's too cheap. I feel like I may need to jump in and give it a try. I'd send it to you, but clearly you're not in it for the money and I'd feel guilty. I might as well experiment following your thread. Thanks,

Too bad the stock CDI can't handle a trip through a reflow oven... like cooking a RRODed Xbox board to get the GPU working again.

Some ICs are in sockets too...including the processors.

I can still do it Rob......i just posted the thread for people that want to try...pm me if you it done....not everything has to about money,this clearly isn`t,this is something i do to help people out...i enjoy doing that...

I was getting flooded with repairs and got screwed by a few newbies that refused to pay after,,so i started the thread..i used to do them for free..but after losing money on those few i had to stop...

Don`t feel quilty.....it`s kinda my way of paying it forward....

Marlin james,

I have sent a couple PMs to you but I did not receive a reply. Can you let me know if you got them please?

and will any exhaust give me an increase in power?
Hello Marlin, I did Dave's mods and my bike was running a little rough after. My problem turned out to be the choke cable was too tight. Once I loosened the adjuster up by the bars, the problem of running a little off was fixed. Just my .02 cents, and something that was easy to fix. You probably already checked this, but figured I would put it out there.

Aren't you glad I'm a nice guy. I don't get all bent out of shape when someone tells me to F--Ken shut up!
I just threw in the " cost you your shirt" to be funny. You know what funny is right? remember funny?
But I'll tell you this "Mr. let's see you do it cheaper", I can fix a CDI 99% more quickly than you with a 99.99% reduction in labor at a 75% increase in cost. ( ie: I'd have to got buty a new one).
I dont remember why you owe me a repair, was it because you beat me down with a stick on the price of the helmet I was selling?

That's what I thought when I read about that... out of the frying pan and into the fire!

Some previous carburetor work experience should be a prerequisite to attempting Dave's mods. As simple as it is for one accustomed to working on carbs, it's not what I'd consider a suitable candidate for a first-timer.

Others please chime in. One thing I see from the photos you sent is the line that is capped in the first pic., my 96 does not have this nipple. Can someone post a pic of the vac hose routing for his year? One is vent and one is vac to the slide.









The photo below: With cable in this position, cable and plunger straight, measure from end of the black plastic fitting to the sholder of the large daimeter of the plunger to set choke ( .04 to .08 inch )

Mine doesn't have that extra nipple next to the slide vacuum nipple at the top. Could be an "improvement"; better wait for Steve.

I didn't take my choke or throttle cables off to work on the carb, nor to take the engine out. Extra work.
