Re: 2014 Patrol low idle

Darrell, The adjustment is just idle, as long as he's close and not messing with the cables, what trouble do you expect? I'm not a fan of vague gloom and doom. Ever run an unbalanced engine? It's pretty obvious when it's so off as to cause problems. The screws are probably already off. The engine is...

Re: 2014 Patrol low idle

hope you have access to the computer OBDwiz to dial in your balance and idle, its the only for sure way to get it right. I take it you've never actually adjusted your throttle bodies. The idle adjustment, for when there is no twist of the throttle, is the adjustment screw on the bottom of the throt...

Re: 2014 Patrol low idle

Have you changed fuel recently? What's your oil level? Air filter clean? Had a weird idle issue from crap fuel. Took several tanks before it sorted out. My bike currently prefers mid-grade, higher or lower doesn't run as well. Oil level too high can make the bike idle weird too, my theory is it spla...

Re: So where do I start troubleshooting?

Brake reservoirs tend to be sized to match the pad wear. If full with new pads, it should still have adequate fluid once the pads are worn out.

Unless you're burning through pads in just a couple months, find the source of your leak.

Re: heated grips

I've installed Polly inserts in several bikes, but they now seem hard to find. Motorcycle heated grips may have a different temperature range than snowmobile heated inserts, at least Polly did. I go the snowmobile route, I can always turn them off, dial down the heat, but lukewarm grips aren't nearl...

Re: Jets jets jets

The fuel screw on the head side/ bottom of carb works with your idle jet. Part of the idle tuning is an idle drop, where you set the carbs to idle around 1,200 rpm and turn that screw in/ out until the idle drops on either end (rich/ lean) with the sweet spot of the warm engine being inbetween. Less...

Re: Shorty Stem

FYI, Terry sells a stem elimination bolt that sucks the turn signal right up against the mount Might be an option if the short stems still catch.

Re: WTB: standard seat cover

Hey Peter, The "stitched" is the pattern of the seat cover. Vinyl is the material of your cover. The stitched cordura will have your same seat pattern, stitched leather will also have your same seat pattern. Not sure what you mean by "maybe they messed it up"? UralNE doesn't have your seat cover on ...

There's also a smooth vinyl like UralNE sells. http://www.uralne.com/tractor-seat-cover/ AF1 has your cover on their site. https://www.af1racing.com/store/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=85445 For the cost of one new cover from AF1, you could get two from ...

Re: WTB: standard seat cover

Hey Peter,

Is yours vinyl or leather? Looks too smooth for the nylon version.

I think I have a leather cover buried in the garage. Lemme know if yours is leather, and I'll dig it out.

Re: 2010 for 17k - Or you could buy a 2019...

I'm always puzzled by the name calling when someone wants to sell something. If you're interested and can afford it, buy it. If you're not interested, or can't afford it, pass. The entitlement mentality, where if someone offers an item for sale, they're required to offer it at a very low price, is c...

Re: SPOKE TORQUE

I prefer to tighten spokes while the rim's on a truing stand. Just tightening on spec/ sound can make wobbly wheels.

Sure if a spoke sounds way wrong, adjust until it's tire change time, but once the wheel's off the bike, on to the stand it goes.

Re: 2018 EFI - Overfill oil = hard to start when cold/ runs like crap until warm

Wet sump is part, I believe the overfilled oil was also going out the timing vent and dripping into the intake bodies. Too high at sump = initial startup issues, oil going out timing = crappy low idle.
