Re: Parking the bike...

Sergey will take care of you and do his magic on your engine. He did mine 8 years ago when it had about 18K klicks on it and failed. Since then I have over 92,000km's on it and it runs like the proverbial swiss watch, a little noisier than a watch but plenty strong like OX, LOL. Best of luck and man...

Re: Do I Need an Oil Cooler?

Most likely you will not get any power back running a cooler in hot weather. The hot air at 90+ is down on Oxygen and all engines will be short of full power. Not much one can do about that unfortunately even with EFI. The cooler will help keep internal temps down a bit but with the pump output bein...

Re: Nervous

Congrats on the new rig! Now take it out everyday and ride the crap out of it! Especially during the warranty period, get as many miles as you can under it and get any issues resolved before the warranty expires. To many of these rigs sit during the warranty and when problems come up later it can be...

Re: Rear main bearing

I also have a 2010 engine and there was a problem with the welder setup that attaches the slingers and roughly 50 engines got out with weak welds. I had one of those and got the same swarf on my drain plug too. I contacted IMZ service (Jason) and he was aware of the issue. I had to return my engine ...

Re: Has anyone seen this? 1700cc engine

I don't think that motor will last very long. The bore is to big for those cylinders, sleeve is very thin and to close to the stud holes. When it heats up it will distort like crazy, not enough metal for an air-cooled engine to shed heat into. I could be wrong but I bet it eats head gaskets and burn...

It has the new front cover with spin-on filter and 2013 branch pipes as well. Someone kept up on the changes. :)

Re: G2 Throttle Tamer

Interesting, after many years of needing all the throttle one could use to get the rig going we are now looking for ways to "tame" the critter. It's a good problem to have. :lol:

That is a great price for the Denso, the bearing housing alone is over $350 new. :thumbsup:

Re: Good value - Mikuni Flange

Interesting, I am also coming up on 100K and have been running the same manifolds & insulators for almost 10 years now and will check the condition of mine as well, Thanks for the heads up, they look fine from the outside but as yours show it can still crack from the inside. :thumbsup:

Re: WTB Starter Jets for Keihin CVK32

The smaller size jets will work as well in a pinch. I actually run a set of 55's I found in a collection of carb bits from a garage sale of all places. I have never seen them anywhere else. It provides just enough extra fuel for a slightly higher idle without blubbering & wasting fuel, the 65's were...

Re: Ural Gear Shifting and RPMs

I run the PA ignition and a while back I missed a shift trying to hurry up and spun the engine up to 7,000rpm briefly according to my tach. No ill affects that I can tell and it seems to be OK. Runs like it always has. Got lucky I guess, time will tell. :moto:

Re: Nomenclature confusion, compliance fitting, mounting flange

If you do order new "compliance fittings" from Raceway, for example, I would suggest also getting the phenolic insulators and a couple extra gaskets and install it all with longer bolts. The reduction in heat exposure will help the fittings last forever and the carbs will run cooler. They also offer...

Re: rear brake light switch

May not be the switch, it could be telling you that the pressure is not dropping off and the brake is dragging or hung up. Make sure the MC is not overfilled.
