Re: Fuel pump priming idea.

So, has anyone actually tried Burt1713’s idea to see if it works?

Re: cylinder head temp using a tto brand CHT.

I live in the Northern California mountains. My 2016 GU will run at up to 380 deg CHT when just tootling around. Going up long grades at speed CHT will be anywhere from 420-445 degrees. CHT will drop right back down below 400 as soon as the road levels off, unless I’m trying to maintain 55 mph with ...

Re: 2 to 1 from Russia

looks nice. I like the junction of the left and right headers. The angle of the joint appears to be much better than the Raceway 2-1.

Price, source, and availability?

Re: Fuel Rail Hat Replacement

This is what I did to protect the plastic fuel injector hats. I just did some creative bending of a bracket from the local hardware store. I think the photos are self-explanatory. Note: the screw that secures the hat is too short and should be replaced with a longer one along with a drop of blue loc...

Re: California Emissions Package from 2014 - IMZ-8.1037-15087

Check with Ski at Triquest in San Jose. When I bought my 2106 GU from him it was an extra $300 for the emissions stuff, which is necessary unless it’s a used bike with over 7,000 Miles (not km!). Note: i understand that if you try to register a non CA compliant bike in CA, the DMV can blacklist the ...

Re: Anti tailgating system fully armed

I’ve always simply stood up on my motorcycle’s footpegs.... Why sit when I can stand up and stretch a bit? It has worked every time. For some weird reason people get really intimidated when they suddenly find themselves face to face with my rear-end,... Ummm..., probably the implications of looking ...

We’ve been meeting up each morning at 9 am outside of cabin A at Archview RV Resort, and then taking it from there. Somehow the Divine Plan is revealed!

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

Thanks, Silberman, for thinking of me on Route 50. I am most appreciative. — you’re right on with your suggestions: I’ve driven the road more than a dozen times, and, alas, it’s not quite as lonely a road as it used to be.

Re: Spring in Moab 2018

Damn, I’m going to miss you, Dave. I was looking forward to your visit here in Kalifornia, after Moab, as well. - Guess I’m just going to have to drop in sometime to see you in Washington on my way to see my sisters in the northwest... I’m off to Moab to in the AM, riding Shanti and boondocking alon...
