Re: help fuel starvation help

That reminds me hose could be disintegrating inside and hence clogging up, if you re using ethanol gas and hose is not compatible. Just remembered that. Seen stories about this.

Re: help fuel starvation help

1/4 inch fuel lines should normally be plenty big enough. Must be that rust, gunged the tank filter again I expect. I would try to rinse the tank out as much as possible.

+1 re tank cap air hole.

Re: The pick up and 900 mile ride home

Running with the windshield up is like having a piece of plywood flush to the wind. It is necessary when you have a passenger, but if you are running solo you'll get better handling and gas mileage if you lower it or remove it. This is my understanding too. EDIT: also put the cover on, makes it mor...

Re: Headlight maximum wattage = ???

Yep that's the kind of thing. My dealer has an upgrade kit option, now in hand. :D So he's obviously been down this road before too. NB: 100/80W is no good if still running stock wiring and connectors etc. Tried one in my 850 Guzzi once, no difference whatsoever. Too much series resistance. Much bet...

Re: Headlight maximum wattage = ???

OK I can answer my own question :D - it's a H6024 sealed unit. 65W hi-beam 35W lo-beam.

So now I'm looking at replacing it with a different unit that can use an H4 55/65W Philips Xtreme or something like that.

Re: Is a Ural for me?

Same for me Steve. I first heard about Urals a couple of weeks ago when I stumbled across a video on YouTube and now it seems I've got the bug. Thanks to all here who share their knowledge and experience. I appreciate it. Isn't that uncanny, is what happened to me. Saw a video... It reminded me I w...

Re: 2001 650 with a "stuck" engin/trans

Snakeoil, I will check that next. Thanks. I have also found out that when I put it in gear, pull the clutch in, I can move the kick starter. Also, while in neutral, if I pull the clutch in a little bit a kick starter will move as well. Not sure what this means. Strange as it sounds, the kickstarter...
