  1. Starter Engages, but Doesn't Spin Engine

    I posted this on Bad Weather Bikers.

    So, my '08 started acting weird, see subject line. It was acting like maybe the battery had a bad cell. Push starter button, starter hits, then - nothing.

    You don't say anything about the condition of the ECM - they are subject to cracking at the connections, and all sorts of weirdness can happen.

    When I bought my '08, it had a gutted 'stock'...

    I'll add my useless $.02. The '08 I bought had a hollowed out can with two nozzles. OMG loud, and backfired even louder. And the bike surged badly at cruising speed.

    I'm guessing Barrett's #3. The butterfly might be sticking, and the cold makes it worse. Give the throttle bore and butterfly a good cleaning, and do what you can to clan the butterfly shaft on...

    Yuasa Battery - Internal Failure

    I've had a Yuasa YTX14H-BS in my '08 Uly since I bought it a couple years ago. The battery was in my '03 Triumph Sprint ST for a very short time - when I bought the Uly, I sold the ST. The Yuasa...

    I'm not sure if it's me or if the bike really is running better - but it sure feels more 'spry'!

    PCV 'Alternate'

    See my thread in the main forum, but I put a Carquest #PCA 1026 at the end of a five inch longer hose from the rear PCV that is installed in the rocker box cover. That valve failed, and new 'OEM'...

    Cheap Alternate Part

    Okay - an update. Still outraged by the cost of a 'genuine' replacement part (StPHD - $34 plus $5.66 shipping), I decided to look for a suitable alternate.

    I found an umbrella/mushroom style...

    What Cooter said!

    The power lead is three feet long - relocating the VR wouldn't make any significant 'electrical' difference.

    But it (and all other VR's) definitely need cooling air, and a...

    3419,

    I only responded as I did because the cost in Europe is freakin' incredible!

    At StPHD, they're -only- $37 each. Plus shipping.

    I'm going to see if I can find a suitable 'replacement' -...

    Ground Locations?

    Has anyone posted a 'map' to where the grounds/earths are located? The wiring diagram shows five grounds. I don't think that means there are five grounding points - I think a couple...

    Cooter, there's almost no difference which end you blow in - very little resistance.

    What little there is might probably be the foam 'oil trap'.

    3419 - they are going instantaneously. No burn marks. No hint what is happening, other than (of course) I'm getting a huge demand, or a direct short.
