I (or Buellxb) will continue adding these as I finish them







If you have changed a component like the ECM or fixed a problem in the bike, it is a good idea to take the bike for a ride to let it learn. After completing the steps in the video, ride your bike in closed loop (between 3000 & 3500rpm) for a good 10 minutes. Do not do any hard accelerations during this time. Give the tps time to learn the settings and adjust accordingly.







This one isn't by Dave, but still awesome.

No need to lock this awsome thread! I have a feeling this will become the best threa to the forum, even if it doesn't get to 80 pgs and over 1200 posts. The amount of knowledge being shared in each video is worth hundreds of posts and hours of searching for many.

Great job and idea for this Dave

Yeahbut, subject video's clutch adjustment procedure is incorrect. It's two steps, not one.
1) Adjust clutch pack's free play: lightly loaded, then badck-off (un-load) one-quarter turn.
2) Adjust free-play at lever, use adjuster built-into cable sheathing and located just near exhaust pipe & front cylinder head.
See service manual.

I have the service manual, this is a ROADSIDE adjustment. I've done it many times, it's worked every time.

Then add step .5 - loosen the cable adjuster first, then clutch freeplay, and finally the cable adjuster. Assuming you have the end wrenches on the side of the road.

Just saying...

Another great video.

I wish I could remember who said it so I could give them credit. It is a great idea. That's one of the things I like about these videos, they're not right out of the manual (the torque specs are) but I'm trying to give other tips to help the process.
