    I accidentally did this correctly. I'm rocking a 1/4 turn out on the adjusting screw from when it bottomed (spec is 1/4-1/2 turn out). Cable adjustment followed after that.
    Also accidentally have...

    Hmmm, clutch cable is newer was recently re-adjusted to spec. I have not checked the primary in over a year though. Will look into that.
  3. weird detent type feel between 3rd and 2nd (downshift only)

    So you know when you downshift from 2nd to 1st and as you bypass neutral you can feel that little notch/detent type thing - well I get the same thing downshifting from 3rd to 2nd. What's up with...

    Man, some great shots from Utah/Colorado!! Enjoy your time, hit some sweet CO mountain roads and savor it cuz once you hit Denver it'll get a lot more boring (straight roads, less elevation changes)....

    Hmmm, McMaster has it but only sells in packs of 25 - way more than I need (4). Couldn't find anything or Grainger nor Twin's site. Got a link for Twin moto's site? I searched and searched.
  7. Replacement bolts for fork lower triple clamp?

    So, did my research - gotta be grade 8, can't use stainless due to the torque involved and 'cold fusion' of the bolt with the clamp. St Paul HD only appears to stock the lower pinch bolt (the ones...

    According to other posts about this, the crankcase or whatever utilizes a one way reed valve in the PCV valves that negates the need for a check valve.

    See 8th post...

    I feel like I really connected with your Balls today. Thanks Coots, we really went up one level in our relationship. Really feeling a spiritual connection now.

    Well, just popped off one dust seal...
  10. Hmm. Plastic bag trick? Have not heard of this....

    Hmm. Plastic bag trick? Have not heard of this. You mean the initial putting of the seal on tube? Uh oh. I used the AllBalls as many have and I didn't hear complaints while researching.
    I'm guessing...
  11. New fork seals leaking a little - install fail ??

    Oh dear god. So I actually did these twice. The process is really quite straight forward.

    The first time apparently got some white plastic 'dust' between the fork legs and seal from the plumbing...
  12. Well, they seems fine now. We got fresh fork...

    Well, they seems fine now. We got fresh fork seals/wipers/oil (finally), rehabbed brake pads & rotor, new turn signals, and a new horn. Took it out for about half hour today and it's running great. I...

    That's pretty much exactly what I've done in the past. Never was sure if it helped or not (the older brake pads at least).

    When you say I'll immediately know - what about accounting for the bed in...
  14. Contaminated brake pads - are they done??

    So my fork seals went out (fork currently on operating table) and leaked enough oil to somewhat contaminate the pads / rotor. I know I can clean the sh** out of the rotor with brake cleaner and steel...

    I can't believe how I overlooked the simplest part of the original set up: if you have some incoming flow and you cap the end, it will take the path of least resistance AKA the air filter. Like...

    Sounds like I'm either gonna relocate the filter a little further away per Barrett or just delete it. I went with this set up cuz it was relatively simple (no ridiculous CNC, brackets, or similar...

    Well, while I was reading up about various versions of this, I read somewhere about vacuum or something potentially being an issue. As long as you let air in, oil goo will move along.
    Initially I...
  19. Crankcase breather mod - What did I do wrong??

    hmmm, so I read up plenty about doing this. I don't need fancy CNC catch cans and whatnot. First, it runs fine. I'm getting oil blow by/mist on various parts. Pretty minor, accumulates with time -...

    I recently had to do bearing maintenance and removed the sprocket. Per Dr. Internet and Dr. Cooter, I reused my bolts and re-loctited them. properly torque wrenched as well. A few hundred miles so...

    How about the center tail section? Got any pics? Feel free to PM me here.
    Thanks.

    That brings me back to the original post. Looking at the fuel maps, I was wondering if I could give it a little more pop/fuel/whatever it needs. Wanted to start here instead of dicking around and be...

    Exactly. This is my test run . Stop sign leads to highway on ramp. Starting in first, so I'm hitting 3K rpms just after the intersection = torque drop & WTF moment. Then the banshee starts screamin'...

    I guess that's the thing - I wouldn't say it runs 'poorly' at all. Spark plugs are pretty fresh, air intake is properly sealed (unlike that fiasco from a year ago). Pretty much no decel popping. Last...
  25. Brief loss of power / bogging around 2800rpm? Otherwise fine... XB9

    Hello again my Buell dudes & dudettes!
    So generally speaking, the bike is running really good. I have noticed about the half the time (?) that the output from the engine seems kinda inconsistent....
