    Wire Loom Fix

    The filter is inside the tank along with the pump. The tank has to come off to access either.

    Wire Loom Fix

    Codes won't flash on startup unless you jump the plug back in the tail section. I forget the exact process off the top of my head but hopefully someone with a better memory or a manual will chime in. If it's not a bad ground (which is a good possibility), it might be worth checking the fuel pressure regulator. That doesn't explain your electrical symptoms but it might explain your surging. Throttle sensitivity, like Oscar said, get your weight off the bars and keep your arm and grip relaxed. Your arm should be absorbing shocks between your body and the throttle, not transferring them. Watch some off road or motocross racing and think how ugly that would get if they kept their throttle arm and hand rigid. Relax and that problem goes away.

    Adjustable lowering pegs 4 sale

    Pictures would be nice but I'm thinking any adjustable rearsets should easily be worth $35+ shipping. If I still had an XX I'd grab these just out of curiosity.

    School me on gutters...

    6” gutters are overkill in most residential applications. The bottleneck is almost always the downspouts, 6” gutters will just take slightly longer to fill up once the downspouts can’t handle the flow. 5” gutters and properly configured 3” x 4” downspouts will do the job on about 99% of residential applications.

    School me on gutters...

    Gutters don’t cause wood rot, lack of maintenance does. A properly installed and maintained gutter system will do exactly zero damage to wood overhangs. Even if they’re allowed to clog and overflow, the water should be coming over the front, not over the back where it could get the fascia and/or soffit wet. Gutter guards, there are products that work but most of them cost as much or more than the gutters themselves to have installed. Look at some of the stainless micromesh products available now if your budget allows for it.

    Rear caliper won’t release.

    Yeah, for the rest of us it's a gun forum. Bill, when you going to sack up and buy that .40 from me?

  9. Heh, it's still here. I forgot I was selling it, LOL. Lemme know and I'll get it off the the FFL of your choice.

    Rear caliper won’t release.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your earlier post about releasing the front brake. If the rear is sticking and the front isn’t, my money is on a problem either in the rear caliper or between it and the rear master. If it was the rear master itself, the fronts would drag as well.

    Rear caliper won’t release.

    Which banjo on the front released the pressure, and are the front brakes binding at all?
  12. Carbs for an '01? That's a rare item.

    Art/Homework Table

    Looking good, man. Don't you just hate the point in a job when you realize you're short on materials? Could you pour a bit more over the existing stuff to avoid a seam on the surface where you ran out?
  14. No offense, but that bike is not in excellent condition, so starting with that number seems a bit disingenuous. Also, does that number take the mileage into account? I'd very be surprised if it did. Not trying to be a dick, but based on what I quoted I think you might be in for a rude surprise if you take it to market at anywhere near that price.
  15. Just cover shipping and understand they'll get shipped on a "whenever I get around to it" schedule. As a bonus, A Twist Of The Wrist is a signed copy, so bonus if you're name is Tim. The picture I uploaded was oriented correctly, so blame the forum software for this sideways crap.
