    Goodbye to My Trail-Making Companion

    sorry for your loss.. heartbreaking.. I lost three furry friends in the last 6 months..
  3. Not exactly sure if it's a direct swap for the 690 guage.. but like you I'd like a better dash, so am ordering this. Seems that it would meet your needs perfectly but maybe without the fuel guage.. I plan on mounting mine right over the top of the existing husky dash, maybe a little to the left so I can see the yellow fuel light. https://www.trailtech.net/voyagerpro

    Broke Spigot on Intake, :(.. Now what?

    Luck then I guess, because the bolts on mine are in there super tight. yeah, 501 everything is red loctited.. 701 barely on at all. :).. must be 2 different factories

    super crazy.. i've been wrenching on my 701 this week and haven't had the same experience at all. They barely tightened any fasteners at all on the 701..

    Clutch on 2017 FE 501

    I just went back to motorex 10/60 in my bike last night, and noticed IMMEDIATELY how nice the shifting was. Mines an 18 501

    yeah, good point.. super odd.. ;).. but the lighter side.. it's a BEAST after changing a few things around.. runs smoother as way more pull..
  9. WOW.. lucky for me, it was simply an emission thing that i was blocking off anyways. That's terrible for your deal.. bet you were bummed.

    That's a really great idea, unfortunately the extractor was deep in a hole and recessed into the brass spigot threads at that. You can see the image a few posts up above. Currently it's not coming out unless I take my motor apart. I've got it QuickSteel'd at the moment, so it's not really a moving part and is only plugging a vacuum line hole, that i removed with the rest of my emissions system.

    Who is going to the Kilted Duck Poker Run this Saturday ?

    GasGas went back to the factory. They replaced 2 bikes, and I finally had it. They are great bike, but have fundamental issues, that can't be fixed.

    I read about that thing.. but.. reality is.. if i had to do that I would have to take the motor apart, since i wouldn't want any metal debris in the intake, or maybe shove a rag down it's throat first.. . The intake is part of the cylinder on this bike. so top end, etc would all have to come out. Considering it only has 3 miles on it i probably won't do that right now. If/When it needs a rebuild maybe. ;).. Or if my hack fix fails I'll do it right.

    Done, with fingerprint so they know what dumbass did it. ;). I have a TON of more work to do to this thing, so it'll get a few days to cure. Thanks for the tip..
