Got my LC4 manual on CD

Picked up this CD from Munn Racing and I love it. It has the full factory repair manual for all LC4's up to 2003 and has maintenance and troubleshooting guides for all electrical circuits, oil circuits, fuel circuits, etc...

So now I know my carb is the Dellorto 40 PHM SD (on a 400 !) and it rocks, and I know that the hot start button should be normally out for off and I know how to adjust the fucker so it doesnt redline when I push the hot start button in

And now I have a new air filter in (went with No Toil), It's back to one kick starting first time every time

I have the tools and gaskets to do my valves now but the bike is running so great I'm gonna leave it for a bit. First sign of trouble I'm in. I'd like to rebuild the carby too at the first sign of trouble - the bike always smells like its flooding, but the spark plug looks fine, but it just doesnt seem right to me.

Amongst my other projects are:
- reconnecting the plugged LHS fuel tap (so i can reclaim another 0.5 gallon of gas before refilling, AND switch to reserve safely while riding on the hwy)
- running a correct length brake line to my new rear caliper
- finishing my new dash with 12v LEDS connected to the idiot signals.
- Dual Star mirrors, or whatever Meat and Creep decide on
- mounting orange plastic

I love my 400.

Thanks,

I emailed Chip and asked him about a manual, he told me about the CD. My total order arrived in about 7-10 days.

As much as a CD sounds good, I like to be able to take the manual to the bike instead of riding my bike upstairs to the computer

No matter how many pages I printed out, Murphy would make sure the one I needed was the one I DIDN'T print. Then I'd have to bother the wife to print me that page since my hands would be all greasy from wrenching away...



YMMV - but I like the paper version....

This would give me a reason to actually plug in my old compaq pc in the shop.
But then the only reason I'd have to come in the house would be to shower...Maybe.

CD manuals suck, another piece of crap foisted on us by the non-mechanical unknowing, hands off, uncoordinated, maxi zoomed dwebbie geeks of the world, of course having to deal with running said CD on a windows system gives insight into hell for the still living!

Still having some sort of maintenance manual sure beats going at it blind. God how I miss good old paper manuals with greasy finger prints, dog eared pages, and a place to make notes in the margins.
