What internal said.

If you have to ask how to adjust a clutch cable, you don't have a lot of cred to be dissing those who try to help.

Not sure why George added Supracore when a new Seat Concepts foam was used? http://greatdaytoride.com/Home_Page.php
Thanks Eakins, looks like a fantastic material! I'll be looking into it for sure. -Tom

Frank carves out a pocket on the bottom of the seat foam and adds the Supracore into the pocket.

Everyone likes pics, so here are a few from my recent build of a 2004 400E that I picked up cheap with a parts bike. Its almost done now. Still need some hand guards and engine protection:



Phase 1 complete:




Phase 2, lets get some better lights




New Brakes, wiring harness and other street legal crap added




Now extend the range a little





And Finally, the most important part:

A utility knife works for me. Something very thin to break the bond between the washer and the flange of the bolt. Once this bond is broken, they come off pretty easy, sometimes just slipping off, sometimes requiring unthreading.

I usually use a pair of plain pliers. Straight grabbing the crush washer with the threaded part inside the jaws. Then simply unscrew the washer.

So I just picked up a Dynojet Stage 1 kit. I'm wondering how to pick what jet to use.... My machine appears to be running lean, I'm pretty sure it has stock jetting..

so from what I understand, you go to a smaller main jet for this..I have a 128,130,132,134,136 to choose from.

The bike mostly lives at sea level, I run a K&N filter, and a yosh Tailpipe of some description...No model given, It has some japanese on it, and says offroad.

I'm not too sure about wanting to do the 3x3 mod,thinking of dust/ water issues.

What is a good starting point for a machine running lean?

Well hears a thing I may have mentioned before
I just put two washers under the needle to raise it a bit and all is fine, I know cos it runs great and I just change a plug and the colour is good on the old one
Other than that the engine is stock.

If it's lean, go bigger, not smaller. If you gotta ask this question, get some more experienced help, ya don't wanna burn a valve or piston. Read all the responses, raising the needle a tad sound like good advice.
