Thanks for the instructions, Install was stupid-easy!

Exhaust sounds awesome too.. I couldn't do anything less than a 110% throttle lmao

The only thing is, I had to take my bike to Max to have them reset the adaptation values in the computer to allow the FI to calibrate to the new pipe. My bike would backfire and hesitate at 1/4 throttle wicked before I did it. It actually is a simple thing, but it takes a while. They have to first ride the bike to see what the hell is happening, then let it cool completely before resetting, then run it and I think they did it again or something. I think it was a ploy to get me out on another bike
I cost about $100 but it did the trick. It was weird, cause it didn't seem to do it right away, but once it started it got progressively worse.
If you have an hour or so to kill, it might be worth it to run the bike down to your dealer and tell them to reset the adaptation values. Demo the scooter. That little bastard is a hoot

I actually planned on that after reading through this and the 650gs thread.

I did not notice any hesitation in throttle on my test run. I did disconnect the battery (2 hours) and turned the ignition on to ensure I'd bleed the system out of anything. My theory was the ECU would relearn after being completely dead.. something I've experienced on cages.

well the verdict is as predicted a stuffed seal/oring
the dealer says hes never seen one before
well he has now and can fix the next one that comes in

suppose to be 2 days and back on the road we hope

Wiring Diagrams

Anyone out there in Sertao land know of any factory wiring diagrams available for the Sertao? I've seen them for the F650s. Curious

Talking fuel pump seal replacement Costa Rica

my fuel pump seal was leaking from Mexico all the way to San Jose Costa Rica (where i finally had it replaced). Best service that ive ever experienced at a motorcycle shop EVER.

they immediately put my bike on a lift, they had all the parts in stock and i was in and out of there in 45 minutes.

here is what the fuel pump and it's filter look like.
there is a special tool that is required to remove the pump.

the gasket was torn on one side.








one of the techs that was working there nearly shat himself when he saw the fork swap i'd done on the bike.

i haven't had any more problems with it. I rode it from san jose costa rica to panama city panama with no issues from it.


pretty sure that i am the one that screwed my gasket up. when i was doing the fork swap, abs delete rear wheel swap blah blah i had the hair brained idea to try to unscrew that huge round thing that holds the fuel pump in.... just to see if i could do it... dont laugh you fuckers i know you have thought about trying it too.

cave man budged it. so i think i screwed it up , not the factory.

less than 1000km/600miles and either blew a o-ring/seal /gasket
or split the tank????


fuel just pouring out under the seat [lucky it didnt ignite me up]

anyone else had this happen to them and what was the diagnosis

its at a dealer at the moment but havent heard the outcome yet and thats 300km/180mile from me as i came home in a car lol
ruined the trip in a hurry
It's the seal under that big threaded flange it happened to mine and a few others in this forum. I replaced it myself and it's been fine for 10,000 miles now
