Smoke

So got the fmf system on today and the tm40 installed. Used high temp silicon, and let sit for 2 days. Anyone else have serious smoke and stink coming from the joint between the header and pipe when they installed this? is it normal? Also having trouble idling with the tm40. Off choke I get a little pop and it dies. Off idle she rocks now. Didn't let her warm up too much as the stink and smoke spooked me. Ideas



Thanks john

My mistake, the kill switch has to be either momentary off or on/off. Their switches are momentary on, which is the correct one for the starter. I put in another order for an on/off switch. Not only did Paul get back to me immediately with the order and refund my Paypal for the shipping fees, he sent me another entire mount and switches, but only charged me for the on/off switch.

The on/off works perfectly and I have bagged up the rest of the parts to mail back to him. Outstanding company to do business with and a much better product than the cheesy OEM equipment that the bike came with!

Tim
Can you post a nice, well lit close up pic on your switch set up on the bike?
(shoot it outside in daylight if you can) Thanks!

You reminded me I need to send Paul some more money.
My shipping was only $14 which can't be right.
I also got the more compact left hand switch block and also the brake mount to take a on/off for the kill and momentary for the starter eliminating the OEM block.

Anybody running an IMS tank with the Pingel petcock? Just got the tank for christmas and am wanting to upgrade the petcock on install. Was wanting to make sure It's a direct bolt in with no modifications? Was hoping you fellas could clear this up for me?

Also was wondering with this set up, what inline filters works best with a stock carb? Was looking at the Pingel, and have also been looking at the clear disposable ones. Any input? What works best, straight or 90?

Any input is welcome. Pictures would be great.

Thanks.

Answers to this question will be very subjective.

The two most popular choices are the 6.6 gallong Safari and the 4.9 gallong IMS. In terms of quality, both are very good. The $250 IMS will take you roughly 250 miles between fill-ups. The Safari costs $600 and should take you about 330 miles. In my subjective opinion, the IMS tank is better value for money, and that's why I bought it. Been very happy with mine so far.

The Clarke doesn't hold much more fuel than the OEM tank, so I don't see the point in wasting my money on it (unless you just want a plastic tank rather than steel). Acerbis is coming out with a tank to fit the 2nd generation DR, but I'm not sure if it's been released yet. If it has, I haven't seen any posts on it yet, let alone any news of anyone here buying one yet. A few people have made custom brackets to mount the old Acerbis tank on their DR (the one they sold for the pre-'96 DR... cause it's not made specifically for the post-'96 model), but that seems like a lot of unnecessary work to me.

Bring it over and I'll weld a knob on there so you can twist it out. Oh, wait.......

Not a direct bolt on but simple enough to make fit. You have to ovalize the hole in the tank a little bit.
