I think I may have found my running problem.



Seal is pretty brittle and while spraying carb cleaner, idle picked up alot. I'll try it first and see how it works.

Save yourself some time and order the boots as well. I had to replace the boots and the orings to get the bike to run correctly. My boots looked to be in better condition than yours. Lots of discussion in the thegsresources.com about guys trying all kinds of repair techniques to keep the boots leak free. Consensus is that none of them work.

Same issues with mine. I could affect the idle by spraying around the boots. The orings just crumbled when I squeezed them.

I believe I ordered them from www.cycleorings.com. He puts the kits together for the GS series, so I ended with four. I also ordered the carb orings from him at the same time.

Here's his take on the orings you are fighting.

Yep, ordered them as well as oil filters. Seems that Bike Bandit is out of stock on one of the intakes, so I can't ride this week again.

That's a bummer! The good news is that the new rubber will make a world of difference in the way the bike runs. Got mine purring like a kitten with quick throttle reponse and easy startups.

Did you rebuild your front caliper? I'm planning on that job, with a stainless brake line, over the winter and am wondering if you found a source for a complete kit.

Thanks, looking forward to getting rid of the miss at 4K rpms. Yes, I did replace the seals in the caliper and rebuilt the master. The caliper came out fine, but the master started leaking at the seal. So I replaced it with an EBAY GS500 master and it's worked out fine as long as no one notices the silver brake lever, kind of like C3PO. I got a black steel braided line from Cycle Brakes. I sent them mine and they sent back both. I highly recommend them.

I got the intake boots in and the o-rings. Installed them tonight and the bike runs much better. A quick ride around the block and I believe my problem has been solved. The Mighty Tempter rides again!



This is what I used to prevent stripping out the made out of cheese screws.



Almost done.

Good deal, VTwin. Glad you got it running correctly again.

I've been looking for an inexpensive JIS screwdriver. Supposed to be much better with the old screws on these bike.

Slowly swapping all of the old screws out to allen heads. No more stripping out screws.

Congratulations on getting the Tempter running! It takes a lot of patience an dedication to getting those older bikes going again.

I'd also look funny and take forever to get to work if I ride the K11p with it's whole 80cc's

Hi Pablo, I have the older version of these...

Mine are probably 25 years old and my phillips bit has long since broken. Good thing it fits a standard screwdriver shank.

So we had our club meeting today and since it was local for me, I rode the K11p. Once the meeting was over, we went on a small ride to grab some lunch. Unfortunately, the K11p let me down again! Good thing I wasn't too far from home and was able to push it within a mile of home until I got it restarted and rode the rest of the way. Not really into naming bikes, but this one just comes to the top, "One-Way-Ki(1)p". It gets me to my destination, but never completes a ride. DNF king this one.
