  1. Check the clutch cable adjustment. With the clutch pulled all the way in does it feel like it wants to move forward? Where does the clutch start to engage? If it starts to engage as soon as you start releasing it probably needs some adjustment. Mine was hard to shift like yours and after I made the adjustment it made it a lot easier to shift.
  2. 48k miles 03S original engine. Still going strong.

  5. Thanks I'll give it a try
  6. I bought the R & D Racing Products Flex-Jet Remote Fuel Screw from TT when I bought the FCR. If anyone else has this or something similar, I'd like to know how they secured it. I'm stumped on this one. Right now it's resting on the fuel hose.
  7. I just installed mine over the weekend. Took me a little longer than an hour, but it's in. I think the hardest part is getting the position set so the throttle wheel is not hitting the frame and the petcock, hoses and choke all work together.
  8. I have an 03 S and want to test the horn to find out why it does not work. I've replaced it twice over the years. Is there some way to test to see if it's the horn or the switch? And to test the fan is it you just apply battery power to it and it should run? I think that's what I read in the service manual. I cannot remember ever hearing the fan run since I've had the bike. Thanks
  9. I have an 03 S with 43k miles. 3x3 and jetting. My only issues with the bike was stators (3). Other than that I just perform normal maintenance. I think this winter I'm going to do a full top end overhaul with big bore , Hot cams and FCR. Probably new clutch too. Still runs great.
  10. Well I went out and double checked my work. Seems I did not tighten the axle bolt enough and it slid forward enough to make the chain excessively loose. Reset the tension and took for short ride. Much better did not jerk. For now I blame it on my handiwork. Thanks to all who pointed me to typical problems. Will update if still happens tomorrow. Thanks again
  11. today installed new tires. Rode 40 miles no issues then problem started. It only happens under power (Accelerating)
  12. Not lugging been riding same bike for 7 years. It's like it jumps in and out of gear.
  13. When accelerating not necessarily hard, the bike all of a sudden lurches and jerks. Almost like jumping in and out of gear. It does not seem to be carb related and I do not notice it in higher gears. I am thinking clutch or transmission. I hope it's not tranny! 2003 s basically stock 36k miles. Thanks
  14. eddie you seemed to have nailed it. I bypassed the clutch switch and it started 10 times no problems. Will run for a few days and see what happens. If I want to replace it how the heck do you take the switch out of the clutch lever? Pull it out? I was afraid of breaking it....
