  1. Randomly engine stalls at idle or near idle. I found that the fuel hose crowded against choke knob and would move it just enough to enrich and stall. I pushed the hose over, but it would soon return to it's troubling ways. So small hole in frame partially behind engine bracket looks like a good place for a hose holder. I slightly tapper the hole. Then found a countersunk pin to stick threw hole, that is not abrasive to hose. A golf tee with a sleeve of heat shrink. I re-installed bracket, which secured the tee.
  2. I have not had much PITA with mine. Concure, gear it down, I ended up at 13/52. The wire connector under left radiator shield took on and held water, shorted out and stalled engine. so i fixed that. Hope you get yours sorted out.
  3. Looks Great
  4. I run these Pirelli mt43 front and back, 16psi front, 12 psi rear cold . I have also ran Mich, IRC and Dunlop on other bikes, and my bud Lee swears by Mich. I do like the pirelli' best because they are firmer when loading side wall. This bike and I together are on the heavy side. I would say gearing it down some and useing trials tires are the best mod.
  5. I'm (210lbs) always fiddling with some thing, and on my 08 klx450r, 13 front (stock) and 52 rear seems to be the ticket for me. Normal/common mods, plus Hinson steel clutch drum. Traction and or making the rear tire do its thing; fancy clutching, body postion, grooving the tire, or even a trials tire seems to make hill climbing much more fun. That balance of all envoled to push me and machine up this hill, don't dig a hole or wheelie to much and shot he over top is such a rush. I often pratice the tuffer hills over and over. Secondly this gearing is so much fun 2nd 3rd 4th gears on the trail ripping.
  6. cool, looks like a great time! #74 on the kawi right on
  7. For trail use what ratio are you running now?
  8. The white traffic cop cycle is what came to my mind, as I would not want one of those behind me or in my garage. I visited a review of st1300 and in other colors looks like a great highway bike, like a little sister of the Goldwing. Yes I appreciate the police and no insult implied. I said good day
  9. yes very much so, piston hits valves. valves bend ez.
  10. 04 slt quadcab 4wd 2500 5.9 diesel automatic 62k: repairs add a lift pump on warranty. one problem now heater fan does not work on the med fast setting. A recently recieved letter says the ecm is now on life time warranty. No major problems. Previous owner towed fifth wheel type trailer, I have not towed much.19-20 hwy mpg. Good solid truck.
  11. maybe for a moment, not likely, doubt that, yeah tainted, in my opinion.
  12. The police ride them around here, so just for that I won't have one.
  13. Change the front to a 13, this will give you a happy second gear. 2nd gear slipping the clutch abit in slow areas is better that dropping a gear. Imbarassing neutral is in there so try not to do much first to second shifts, and you can hammer the gear box with missed shifts. I have found riding second and up is helpfull because monentum is your real freind. If it is slick you got to have good traction on rear tire. Master the clutch.
  14. Flywheel weight and high traction rear tire maybe even try a trials tire if not in mud. you can match up the springs to your wieght but stay to the soft side. bark busters and skid plate. is it a new bike?
