    indicator lights

    Thanks I'll give it another look.

    indicator lights

    All my lights work except for the temp light. I jumped the sensor along with the fan sensor. The fan came on but the high temp light did not. Is there a way to replace the bulb. It doesn't look like the light unit comes apart?

    counter balancer locktite fix

    Thank you I'm doing all the fixes this weekend. Want to have all my ducks in a row.

    counter balancer locktite fix

    In a post someone said that along with the primary nut the counter balancer nut was also L/H thread. My manual cautions about the primary nut being L/H thread but not the counter balancer nut.? Thanks for some clarification!

    Hanging Idle

    I would agree. I added a extended fuel screw and adjusted my carb. Thought it was fine but had hanging idle. Read your post and turned screw out another 1/4 turn. Bike ran even better and hanging idle was gone.

    rebuilt carb not running now

    The first time I put it in without the bottom washer. Then found it on my rag I had parts laid out on and figured out it must have come from the needle and installed it the way you've described. Ran ok but alittle flat off idle. I try the fuel adjustment. Thanks

    Gas is rubbish. What to do now!

    I got a bike the same exact way. Replaced the petcock derusted the tank ( w the sand and water method) and cleaned the carb. It ran fine.

    rebuilt carb not running now

    When I first saw the bike it didn't run very well at all. The owner let me take the bike see if I could get it running right because if it didn't I wasn't buying it. The tank was full of rust and gunk. Cleaned that out and took the carb off and cleaned that also. It ran great with just a little miss. I bought it and have enjoyed it for the last 2 months. I just decided to replace the jets and o rings because I did a quick clean up to see if it would run before. When I put back together it started fine idle fine but would only start revving past half throttle or more. Otherwise from idle until that point it would be flat. Found a washer laying by where the slide and needle jet were. There was only a spacer, c clip and thin washer on the needle jet. Drawing shows 2 washers. This 2nd one was thicker it must have been between the spacer and slide and fell out when I took it apart. I reinstalled it that way and the bike runs better, but still has some hesitation right off idle. Is it normal to have that 2nd washer in that position. It's a stock Mikuni carb. Also doesn't look like it has another clip position. Can you also adjust the pilot screw from stock amount of turns to help performance. Thanks

    Water pump

    When I get everything apart I might do the rtv fix if the shaft is good and keep the new pump as a spare. That seal looks just like a ps 1000 seal I use for swimming pool pumps. I've always installed the seal with rtv on the rubber part of the ceramic in pool pumps.

    Water pump

    I was losing some coolant with each ride and also suspecting a few things. Then let it idle for a little while before I shut it off one day and notice a puddle of anti freeze. Found the source just under the water pump as you probably did.

    Water pump

    I've got some weeping from the water pump. I opted to buy the whole pump, instead of rtv trick or replacing just the seal. Once taking the side cover off and drive gear does the pump come out as a unit? The manual isn't clear on that.

    idle won't drop

    Sounds and feels like it does.
