I haven't looked in the carb, but assume it to be stock jetting.

What he said.

I actually liked it's ability to accelerate better with stock gearing than with lower dirt gearing.

That's about right for a 47 tooth rear. 102 mph with a full load of camping gear and a 45 tooth rear, it helps to really wring it out in 5th:





Edit: Stock jetting, Uptite slip-on.

Since I just got done mounting up the Safari tank, I need to come up with a new mounting option for the rear straps to the bag (I never liked going over the exhaust anyways...). I'm going to run a piece of 1" webbing (strap) under the rear of the tank with the female 1/2 of a fastex buckle sewn on each site. Then I'll thread the male end through the GL straps, so I can take the base piece on / off much quicker. Their design is a bit over engineered with the strap routing...

I also have the Safari tank, so post a pic of your solution

Will do. I'll be sewing the strap / buckles up tonight.

On a side question, I've yet to ride with the GL tank back on the Safari. It doesn't seem like it sits all that well... Have you had issues with the fuel cap breather hose since it gets bend underneath? teh GL buck and roll tank bag may be a better solution, but I really like to have a map case.

I had it such that the bag does not overlap the fill cap at all. That does mean that the bag rides further back than is optimal. Like you, I'm beginning to think the Buckin' Roll might be a better solution...

I don't think I'd want it that far back - it already seems a bit in the way with the front of the bag over the cap. I'm just concerned that the movement will pull out the breather hose. Maybe I'll add a zip tie to it.

In any case, I'll have a pretty good report on it after this weekend. Will be heading to the OR Beemer Rally in John Day on Thursday morning for 4 days of riding. Should be a good test for the tank and new TT X2 HID headlight.

Here's the final deal - looks like it'll work OK.

First: Here's the previous solution, with heat wrap tape on the straps:


This shows the wear on the heat shield. Not a big deal...


The new strap: 1" webbing with buckles:


Feed it behind / under the tank:




Then tighten things up!


Mount the bag:


Left side close up:


Right side:


Here's the fuel vent hose:


New X2 HID with home made shield.


That's about it. Will post some feedback when I get back!

So ebrew sent me the pics, and it's a pretty neat solution, so I thought I'd post up the pictures he sent me:

Cam gear locktite?

Do I need locktite on the cam gear to camshaft bolts? Red? Or are they just powered on there? From memory it's like 90 ft # right?
