die when the problem occurs, it just cuts out and fires again as soon
as you roll off of the throttle. My guess is if the fuel pump or coil were
going south it would be missing across the entire throttle range and
not in just this one specific range.

I was running the FMF factory default settings when it first occurred. I
now have it set at 3,4,.5,8,4.5,4.

Thanks SCOTT_PDX for the tip on the fifth # being 6+. I'll give that
a try and make some test runs.

Actually, this is a good question for "everyone". If you replaced the OEM handlebars, what did you go with and why? Did you add risers?

TIA
I have factory bars, because they work and I'm cheap.

I have Tusk 1-1/4" risers because they're cheap ($20).

This set-up works much better than stock for standing, takes 5 minutes to install, and costs $20.

They work if you don't lie thinking your going straight??? Factory bars are know to bend if you look sideways at them. Normally bend on your way home from the dealership, the irate time they are tied down.

I'm running the cheapo Tusk risers with OEM bars, because I had the risers and the OEM bars are straight, for now

When I bend them, I'll go with the Tusk ATV fat bars and 7/8" to 1-1/8" adapters. Somewhere in this thread someone said that combo will work with the stock cables. If my math is right, it's just about the same as the stock bars and Tusk risers.

Yeah I had to bump up the fifth setting to +6 to and it fixed it Dobek makes these controllers I would call them if you have any more problems Dobek Performance.

If the bike runs without it, it's optional and un-needed.

YZ 80 bars, taller and narrower, but still have room for the controls and mirrors and stuff. Unlike when you shorten big bike bars, YZ 80 bars are shorter in the middle.

Probably dumb question but how about putting the old programmer back on & seeing what you've got?

The old programmer is shorted out. I sent it back in for a reprogram/fix
but it couldn't be repaired which is why I ended up getting the new one.

I bumped the 5th# up to 7 and spent yesterday afternoon and today
out testing it and did not have a single hiccup so hopefully that takes
car of the problem.

VT, Utah...thanks--it has Cycras on it....

BP--I was thinkin' the same thing. Kinda optional?

I did think it was a roller, but it's too clean--and I think there are only two-- and they're both on there.

This is nuts. :-D Thanks fellas.

There is a piece that looks something like that that fits between the muffler and the heat shield... I can't tell the size too well from your photo

Longer Clutch cable

I'm 6'4" and I think I finally got my handle bars at the height I need to stand up comfortably, but my clutch cable is stretched very tight, even with running it in front of the bars. I noticed this weekend, the tight clutch cable is actually causing some resistance in the bars when turning that I can feel and is bugging me and I figure with it stressed like that, its more likely to fail at a bad time. I'd like to get a longer clutch cable made or purchased.

Anyone know of someone that makes clutch cables to your specs or maybe a cable from another bike that is longer and fits?

Anyone happen to know the length of the stock clutch cable?
