Re: Fuel smell after riding ?

If teh petcock is bad it only leaks when yoiu are riding..there is a weep hole to show yous the diaphragm is bad..it drys up fairly quickly after you stop the bike as most of it drains out the tray's hose.

Re: timing belt change

Yep line it up..hold in place with wench and zip ties while you install the belt. Cams on the 1/3 side push the cam wheel so it has to be held in place to install the belt.

Re: New crashbars and highway pegs

Yep if the bike falls over and the pegs hit it may puncture the valve cover rather than being protection they make it a hazard.

Re: Transmission problem 1500 SE

So any chance you can translate..picture of it installed..looks like a great solution and a hell of a lot cheaper than the one around here.

So how/where does it attach to he frame/header?

Re: vinegar or carb cleaner ?

The Yamaha stuff comes in a pour bottle or at least did...vinegar turns carbs black or grayer..not generally used for carbs more a gas tank cleaner. Carb cleaner is better as long as you remove all the rubber bits first.

Yep, doesn't look like fun tracking this down...if the tach is all electrical why would it be slow to activate most electrical stuff is good or bad..except loose wiring...

1998 SPEEDO AND TACH

Over the last few weeks my tach didn't register anything until I blimped the throttle on morning start ups. I ignored it..Anyway yesterday it did it again but didn't register even after the blimp..I took off away noticed the speedo wasn't registering either..but after 30 second both started working ...

Re: CARB SYNC CHALLENGE - 82 GL110i

Those numbers are low run the bike for awhile and see if the compression improves..sticky rings my guess.then try to synch. Won't hurt anything synch is just for a smooth idle

Head gasket most likely..it's an 8 hour job not hard but lots to be careful about. Look through the how to section for instructions.

Re: No fuel feed when trying to start

Doesn't make any sense except the pump turns slower on start up so if a weak pump less fuel....need a good battery..should be 15oz. at 3,000 rpm per minute..

Re: Carb slow jets

They can be tough..but that's your only hope..pull/wiggle..don't use carb cleaner it swells the o rings..I forget if with the bowls off you can see the idle jet's other end..maybe punch it out??or at least loosen it a bit to pull on the screw again?
