    What the f#$% did I do? Rear wheel install

    it's been said a few times, but yes, the right hand side is 'floating' and should be loosened after torquing the axle nut so that it can self center, then re tightened.

    Too much fork oil?

    Measure the air gap. I set mine at 150mm. Non ES, though not sure how the ES applies

    Final drive leak, both places?

    I replaced the output seal a while back. The input recently started leaking, just like yours, and I disassembled and cleaned it up. The spline coupler that rides on the input seal was starting to get rusty and there was crap in the seal. Cleaned out and polished and all is well again. That...

    Traction control really OFF?

    TC Off + a WAD of throttle and washboard is ok. The big enemy is the overly soft suspension and HEAVY unsprung weight of the rear wheel. It doesn't like to stay in contact with the ground over washboard.

    Ohlins Fork Kit FKA 106

    I just ordered a set from Jaxon (Tabasco), and they are a big improvement over stock. Especially considering the stock were trashed after only 40K miles and provided very little bottoming resistance in the first place. Not sure who pissed in France's cornflakes, but they are a customized...

    Anyone got a shifter setup for GP shift?

    I'd have to look at my bike when I get home, but is there room to just turn the shift arm 180 degrees or so and use the same (or a fab'd) link shaft?

    S10 Fork Cartridge options

    During a recent service/revalve, it became apparent that the anodizing inside the damping cartridge tube (where the midvalve piston slides) has worn away. These cartridges were pretty mediocre anyway, even after lots of work, and I'd like options to replace them. As I see it my options are...

    The Darkside.......

    Just decided to end my experiment with the Economist just tracks too poorly offroad. If I were a street only guy this would be a great tire (though I seem to have gotten the last one in the US). If anyone is interested, I could probably ship it somewhere, or come get it free in...

    You LITERALLY are asking for his (and everyone else's) opinion. You seem to have as complete grasp of internet forums as you do the operating principles of a closed loop internal combustion engine...

    Wierd front wheel hop, HELP!

    I think I finally fixed my HOP! I got around to changing the fork oil last night (running heavier springs and oil was getting worn out so damping was too quick) and put in 7wt oil rather than pull them all the way down to reshim as I have a ride coming up. Not only does the action feel damn...

    HELP! no start/no fuel pump this morning

    DOH! you guys had it. I followed the right cluster switch back and it was partially unplugged (in that great rat's nest by the battery, shame on you Yamaha...). What threw me was the mode select switch still worked! Must be a different plug... Anyway, I snapped that back together and wala...

    HELP! no start/no fuel pump this morning

    Nothing was unplugged recently. I took the handlebars and upper triple clamp off and laid them forward to torque the steering head bearings and after that, no start-o. I don't know what could have caused this from moving the wires around up front, but it was running perfectly up until that...

    HELP! no start/no fuel pump this morning

    UPDATE! I did some sleuthing and I've narowed it down to this: The battery and connections are good. ALL fuses are good. When you turn the key, there is no power making it to the fuel pump plug. The fuel sensor DOES get power. When you press the start button, the relay doesn't even try...

    HELP! no start/no fuel pump this morning

    Hmm, the thing gets commuted on daily this time of year, and has never done this. However, the battery has always felt a little weak when starting. I'm guessing (hoping) it was marginal and has been limping along since I bought the bike used (where it sat on a showroom floor for who knows how...
