Re: Oh man something bad happened I think...?

You probably sheared the splines in one of the two clutch plates. Make a hell of a noise until the clutch fully engages, then is quiet.

Re: Cool show with Royal Enfields

Can't watch it, too busy tinkering with the '08 military 500. Other than a Ural it is hard to find another all metal motorcycle.

Re: Holy Hydrocarbons!

Sure is a big improvement over the 31 mpg my previous '08 Patrol got.

Holy Hydrocarbons!

Fueled up the CT at 7 this AM, picked up my friend Andy and went to Lakeland, Fl to pick up Andy's Triumph Speedliner which underwent it's first service and had a windshield, saddle bags, seat, sissy bar, and engine bars added. Fueled again leaving Lakeland. 105 miles on 2.67 gallons of 93 octane. T...

Re: Tub Canopy

A much better idea than making a doggie trailer and making them inhale exhaust fumes all along the way.

Re: Injector Electrical Connector

After cleaning and drying all the ECU connections on the right side, swapping coils and plugs left to right, I called Gene on Monday and then trailered my CT to Holopaw on Tuesday. Kenny hooked up the laptop and checked all the connections again. No power in the right ECU. He replaced the unit and t...

Injector Electrical Connector

Rode about 30 miles in heavy rain yesterday (we had rain gear on). Ten miles from home the right cylinder quit working while sitting a stop light in a down pour. Rather than try to trouble shoot in the rain I motored about 6 miles on the left cylinder and parked the sopping wet rig in the garage. Pu...

Re: Overheating on rides that were fine in other years

Get rid of the vacuum operated petcock. There are several choices for good manual petcocks, but Yamaha style seems the best.
Tee in a vacuum gauge to the petcock vacuum line and you will see why.

Re: Fell Down The Rabbit Hole Today

Spent last 2 days wheeling the Enfield in and out of the garage due to rain. I took off the tool boxes, battery mount, air cleaner, seat, panniers, and headlight. Disconnected all wiring and cleaned the connections and sprayed with LPS 1. Liberal amounts of blue thread lock was applied to anything a...

Re: Can't remove rear axle, RH distance bushing glued to axle?

Best to loosen the final drive mounts, then put the axle in. The parts don't bind then.
