Did you disconnect the battery while removing the airbox? If yes, check to see that you have three wires connected to the neg battery terminal. The wire that runs from the battery to the starter can creep back into the rubber boot while disconnected.

Re: Carb Synch tool

MIke,
Any chance you'd want to part with the broken Harmonizer? Not sure how extensive the damage is but would be interested is seeing the internal construction.
Thanks, Bill

Re: Mikuni rigid carb holder

gobium is correct. Also wanted the piece between the head and the carb throat to be a single machined part, required different thickness of material. And trying to reduce the heat transfer from the head to the carb, used teflon spacers between the two pieces. Lastly being cheap, wanted to use materi...

Re: Sidecar Fuse Panel

I'd think okay. LED lights, short distance, using a relay. What gauge wire came with the switch?

Sidecar Fuse Panel

Wanted to add a USB port and change out the european cigar lighter to something I could use to power my GPS. Couldn't fit all in the factory supplied fuse panel in my 2013 GearUp. Early last week I cut some parts then got busy but yesterday found the time to try it for fit. Sprayed some black paint ...

Re: Wounded '02 Patrol joins the herd.

I can vouch for the higher compression. I would be concerned about adding stress to the rear camshaft bushing by using later model heads with stiffer valve springs. I understand it's possible to machine the case to accept a bearing and have the camshaft ground to fit but not an easy modification. I'...

Re: Did you ride today?

Hadn't started the KLR is 5 months. Son coming for a visit and thinking he'll want to ride so pointed the exhaust towards the open shop door and hit the start button. Cranked maybe 20 seconds and fired right up. Took a couple tries before the clutch loosened up enough to get into first without stall...

Re: heated grips

No prior experience with grip heaters and decided to try a set of inexpensive wrap-around heaters. 2 years now and think I made the correct decision. Put them on for winter then off and store them when it warms up. Maybe 20 minutes to install and secure, 10 minutes to remove. Only problem I have is ...

Re: Using later model air intake on 650 Tourist

Can't locate my perch ring drawing but have the dimensions.
I used 1.960 ID, 2.280 OD and .812 length.
If I were to do again I would increase the OD to 2.290.
Even though not needed, I put hose clamps on the carb side of mine. Slight OD increase would remove any concern about fit.

Re: Using later model air intake on 650 Tourist

A little more work but how about turning perch rings for the carb and airbox that fit the John Deere hose? That's basically what I did for my Tourist and GearUp. The carb rings fit the wide part of the hose and the airbox size fit the corregated part of the hose.

Re: Clutch Throw Out Bearing

Had problems with the throwout bearing on my Tourist. Replaced with a HD bearing. Machined a new release rod tip to better fit the HD bearing and match the original length. Also turned a teflon sleeve to fit in the release slider. Figured it would help with the alignment and maybe increase the beari...
