I may have learned how to start my bike finally after a fall. Or I got lucky a few times in a row. Not sure. Pick up the bike immediately, hold throttle wide open with compression release in. Kick about 6 times. Let off compression release, find compression stroke, and kick with all you have. It worked the past few times, hopefully I'm on to something here.
There is something worn in your carbie , ( linkage , iddle screw , diaphragm + spring ,.... ) get a TM 40

My stocker starts first kick and runs superb for about 15 minutes and then when the engine is fully warmed up it goes funny , even stall when i blip the throttle ( usualy in colder weather ) , there must be a reason for why so many XR owners swapped for a pumper

I didn't have the bog that everybody talks about with the stock carb. I changed mine because:

1) Softer transition from on/off throttle. Mine always liked to snap even when being very smooth.

2) Lighter throttle pull (Should I have gotten the "L" version??)

3) Gas mileage (30's jumped to 50's MPG)

4) Of course more precise jetting.

Mine still isn't jetted perfect, but it never is. Too much elevation change here and on my rides. It's worked from 0-10,000 ft. So I leave it =)

I bought the vapor 2 years ago and have had no problems with it. The battery died on it mostly because I didn't have it powered from the bike for a long time.The battery dieing should not cause it to lose any information programmed or otherwise. If it is losing information it's defective.

The customer service is top notch, I needed the different thermocouple so I could drill and tap the thermostat housing and they sent it to me for wholesale price. Thought that was nice, looking at one of their headlights now.....

sorry for the rant guys....

but Id LOVE to meet the guy who designed the big Acerbis tank for our bikes, preferably in a dark alley...

Talk about a total pain in the ass.

On the right side left side of the bike you cant even see when the bolt hole is lined up, and those shitty brackets? WFT?

I just pray to god I never have to pull that tank off while on my TAT trip.

The main mounts mimic the other tank mounts, just are a bit more difficult to access through the smaller holes in the sides of the tank. It helps to have a long extension with a wobbly adaptor, as well as using bolts with flanged heads. The flanged heads allow you to direct the bolt a bit easier, as well as push it as you apply torque.

For the bottom mounts, don't even bother with the Acerbis brackets. Get the Tanker Brace from Hodaka Guy and be done with it. A much better setup....

First time is a bastard, but it becomes easier with time. The Acerbis at least seems to fit most aftermarket radiators too. The brackets are poor but after a few 400+ km trips without refuelling the pros far out-weigh the cons.

Flanged bolts are good, allan heads & washers are even better - and, when fiddly-inserting is required a ball-end allan spanner works a charm.

Hodaka's brace has too many good reports to be ignored, I'd say get one - by asking him nicely and have some patience, as this is merely a hobby for the man, he's got a very real job

As said mount a tank - fist time tricky maybe - and then leave it on whilst you 'heat cycle' it, in the sun and/or during riding, and do keep it as full as possible. The plastic sort-of 'shapes' around the bike, making later fitting easier.
Dunno the Acerbis but my IMS's fit well, happy with them.

Uhh, well, erm..... (whistles whilst looking at the stars)
No bru. Yeah, I hung them off the oinker, took the expansion tank & zorst off for that of course (so, leaving me with a non-functional mammal!), but I haven't gotten much further than that.
OK, crap me out now, I'm lousy. But, but, when I finally get me arse in gear (read: off time to do some private work) I'll post here, concurrent with pvt mail to you. Scouts honour you know, means a lot to me

Just want some second opinions on my output shaft.. Is it knackered and about to fail or have I got some time on my hands here before it lets go completely? Cheers

Question Changed carb insulator and nothing else. BRP not happy.

I had a fuel leak on my float bowl gasket. I pulled off the carb and fixed it. My bike is not uncorked because I am trying to make it street legal. While I had the carb off I figured I would go ahead and put in the unrestricted carb insulator. The bike does not seem to be very happy about this. It started harder than ever. It idled ok an ran good at slow speed, but when I opened it up in the taller gears it bogged pretty bad.

I am really suprised that it made that big of a difference. Maybe it is something completely different, but I figure it is what I just changed that I making the difference. Thoughts...
