Stock Side Stand

I'm looking for a standard length side stand. Bought a bike that was lowered and need to raise it back up. I posted in the flea market, but thought I'd ask here in case one of you guys lowered your bike and have one you might be willing to part with for a reasonable price.

I'd just turn out the idle adjust screw 1 full turn & see if that solves your cold starts..

It was all mine needed, & it's easier than changing the fuel screw/enrichener setting...assuming you've already enrichened/turned out your fuel screw...

What happened to Moto-Sport Panniers??

Hi Gang, anyone know what's happened to Motosport Panniers..those nice silver or black auliminum ones Shu used on his epic journey??
They were located down in So Cal, I'd spoken with a guy named Ove last year, but now the website points to some dude's soft pannier site out of Colorado. Anyone know what gives?

Epic Journey...

I can tell you, Bedouin. Sadly, no more Motosport Panniers.

The Colorado guy, Ed, was 1/2 the business. He's the same guy who makes Dirt Bagz and also owns Motogear Outlet with his wife ( great people to do business with). Anyway, Ed made the soft bags for Motosport Panniers.

Ove, the guy in California, had the machine shop and made the brackets and the metal panniers. The way I understand it Ove was 70+ years old and only doing it to keep busy and he decided this year that he'd had enough and closed the business down.

You'll have to loosen the two carb clamps to twist the carb so you can drill a small hole in the plug (1/8" or thereabouts). Remember that there are two hoses on the right side of the carb that fit tightly, they'll resist letting the carb twist and it seems the throttle cables also hit the frame backbone. That's why I pulled the carb loose. Once you have the pilot hole drilled, use a small self tapping screw to pull the plug. It isn't in there very tight, mine twisted a little when the bit grabbed. Go gently, the fuel screw is right under the plug, 3/16" maybe.
Yes, mine had a brass plug in there as well. Mine was pretty tight but I used the same procedure to remove it: drill a little hole through it, twist a screw into the hole, grab the screw with some pliers and work the thing out. I took the carb off and did on my workbench though, I didn't want to take the chance of screwing things up because of bad position, bad light, loose work etc.

For others: this works because it lowers the carb slide in the bore, limiting airflow a bit. The increase in vacuum pulls more fuel through the pilot circuit, = richer for cold starts.

Hi Shu
I think it actually closes the butterfly valve (or whatever you call it) a little more, but same affect as you stated.

Hi Shu
