I knew you'd have a pic. Man, you hit that thing dead center on the front corner of that bracket.

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

i'll keep my lowered pegs & just skip that problem altogether.
Lifted the front (only a little) over a dry, rock ford, with a nice little lip of rocks and landed on a rock...

I think the main issue was that it was about 380km into the days ride and the suspension was getting a bit of a hammering from the conditions and with the heat generated, there was a little less damping than usual...

The rear is a 7.6kg spring and 10W oil...
95kg me and maybe 5kg or less of stuff in the bag on the back.

Yea, same deal with my DR. The Oregon bike I bought had just 700 miles on it. I bought a used stock speedo with 4500 miles on it ... and rode it until 7000 miles showed up.
At DMV the guy also looked for a CA sticker on the bike (or was it a 50 state certified sticker?) anyway ... it had one and passed inspection. I was given a CA plate on the spot.

You do pay for this "service" of course and sales tax (which I undervalued some ) added up. Still worth it as the bike had so many extras I would have bought anyway. (IMS, FMF, ProTaper, Bash plate, Corbin and more)

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.

http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_Shop/

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.
