Anyone else using a Vapor? Ever since I removed the gauge cluster to do the fork swap and Vapor install my ign switch has no power. If I put 12v to it, everything works again. It's obviously something simple but an electrician I ain't...

No I dont have HS40, I have TM33 : And no it wasnt stock. I dont think my bike is any different from the us bikes. Excpet we dont need spark arrestors.

I checked all the suzuki manuals. All street model cables have the bends near the carb, and I dont want that.

^^This has 2 different numbers and this has 2 same ones.^^
No help from suzuki either. I guess ill just buy either one. Looks like they should both fit.

And the throttle motionpro talked about is this http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/partno/01-0073/ which Ive seen on many many bikes.
EXC 450 -05, YZ 450 -05 AND my bike all have that throttle setup. Im probably fine as long as the cable is new. Old one is so stuck it only opens the throttle

Finding parts for my DR is a huge PITA. I bought it from a guy who pieced it together using at least three different bikes. It's a 350 frame, 250 motor and gearbox, and 650 forks. I have a set of RMX forks I want to throw onto it, if I ever get any spare time....

Never heard of anyone fitting a Clark Tank. Acerbis XR650 tank has been done before. Maybe this will help:

125W at 5K RPM.

Went for a ride this last weekend. Was going to check out the Donner Summit Tunnels but they were recently closed. Didn't feel like pouching it. Esspeically since there was alot of snow and ice in the tunnels. I would not be able to make a quick getaway if needed.


Went down into Royal gorge. Snowy and muddy. Finally came to a long strech of snow that was not going to be passable. Took another loop out of cold stream canyon. After several icy/snowy water crossing, we got blocked by a hill climb that was completly cover in snow. Blocked once again. The next snow could shut down riding in the area.

Not to mention the charging and ignition system. I run heated grips and 23 watt light. I can not run both at the same time but the one or the other is no problem.

If you are looking to free up power an LED tail light bulb is nice. Don't sweat the trun signals as they are on so intermittenly and you will mess with the blinker relay (need to add additonal resistance). The dash has an outragous number of watt draining bulbs as well. swap those out for LED and you should free up quite a few watts. HID head light can gree up another 20.

I imagine my heated gear is using everything it puts out then.

That's pretty unlikely, as there are typically two layers to the diaphragm in a vacuum operated petcock, with the outer edges sandwiched between a spacer. The spacer typically has a drain hole in it, so that if the layer nearest the fuel gets a hole in it, the fuel will exit there. If the layer nearest the intake port gets a hole in it, there will be a vacuum leak, which will cause the engine to either idle high or die (depending on engine temp and the severity of the leak) until the engine dies from fuel starvation as the bowl empties (if the leak in this layer of the diaphragm is severe enough, the petcock will close/not open). The only way for fuel to fill the engine from a diaphragm failure is if both layers fail simultaneously and the drain hole in the spacer is plugged, or if both layers fail simultaneously and so spectacularly that the volume of fuel that leaks past the diaphragms is far greater than can exit the drain hole.

If the engine sump is filled with fuel, the more likely cause is the petcock lever left in the prime position, the petcock plunger o-ring failing, or the plunger seat in the petcock body corroding combined with a worn out float needle and/or a hardened/cracked/deformed/otherwise damaged needle seat o-ring. Note that the fuel getting past the float valve is the primary culprit in this scenario, as it should be able to stop the fuel even if there were no fuel shutoff on the tank of any kind.

Regards,

Derek

Stator

Hi all.

Need a bit of advice on aftermarket stators.

My stator('90 350s) is fubar, a piece of spring found it's way inside and damaged the coils and pickup.

Seeing as I need to get a new one, what would the advice be regarding aftermarket sources, who's the best and any other advice that you guys can give me would be appreciated.

Thanks
Alli

I have not had a problem running heated jacket. Planning to install HID headlamp and LED tail which might free up enough extra for heated grips too.

CycleGear has (at least they did last week) their heated grip complete kit on sale for $40. Haven't got em installed yet, but they sure look good. They were not marked on the shelf, I had to ask if they were on sale. That's 50% off plus 10% off for veteran discount.
