Re: TPS help needed

In over 30K miles I've never suffered with the mystery 3K glitch and consequently never checked the TPS, although I have added CT's black box fix to 'fool' the temp above 86, And moreover i've never wanted to adjust it either as it sounds like an ideal opportunity for me to bugger things up :( If it...

The links point to pdf files so can download & save them onto your own PC - and years later forget where you put them :wink:

RHS exhaust link pipe hanger - disappeared

I was just ACF-50ing the 'ol boy & noticed the RHS exhaust link pipe to frame hanger, the one down by the rear brake pedal was missing! The complete hanger had broken off all its attachment points on both the link pipe & frame by what I can only assume was metal fatigue due to vibration. Don't know ...

Re: Bar is open...

Splendid, I'll join you for a couple of snifters & a gas.

Seems to me getting the op done early is good thing. Plenty of time to get fighting fit for spring

Re: Winter battery care

Oohh, I know what I forgot to ask does anyone know where the reg/rec wiring actually splices into the loom? It's not the flat connector on the rhs tucked up by the coolant tank return pipe is it?

Re: Hello newbie

Yo ! welcome in. And as you'll know from the Duke the V gives you that lovely grunty easy speed.

Plenty of good info on here if you can find it. Better to use a google search i.e. site:raptorchapter.org.uk <your search words> rather than the in built site search option.

Enjoy

Re: Winter battery care

Fitted a led voltage indicator that flashed on the way to work a couple of days ago which indicates the voltage was below 13.2. It was a cold day & I had left it idling for quite & few minutes whilst I was faffing about. It bounced above & below for a few miles, stayed steady for the greater part of...

Re: Gloomy, rainy, dark, not great for riding :(

It's gloomy, rainy and dark here in the UK. Just horrible. After a rubbish day at work a blast on the back roads would be just the tonic..... So take a little time to have a virtual drink in the bar, tell the friendly bar staff your troubles and plan the Winter upgrades. Cheers, scotch & water for ...

Re: Side Stand Mod

If the bike is sitting more upright on the stand (on level ground) I would have thought it's an indication the bike is sitting lower on it's suspension. Saggy springs & damping perhaps?

Re: Swingarm removal

Dave, when I replaced the rear header lower gasket (to the rest of the exhaust system) it was possible to remove just the front header pipe (& silencers) and leave the rear header in situ. This should then allow the swingarm to drop down and out. A little, ahem coercing, is required getting it back ...

Re: Exhaust header seals

Nick, did you ever get the correct sized manifold seals? Earlier in the year I ordered a pair from wemoto which didn't fit either & they were 55 x 41 (ish). So I just used the original with a good blob of exhaust sealant gunge and so far they haven't given any trouble. The listed Suzuki part number ...

Re: Swingarm removal

Ooh, one thing I forgot is the need for a swingarm castle nut socket. I managed to source one from ebay a couple of years back but I've just checked & they don't sell them anymore. There is one seller, gbmotorcycleproducts, who do ones for loads of other bikes & perhaps they may do a one off special...

Re: Swingarm removal

Well, strangely enough I'm looking to do the same over the festive break and have done some early musings. I normally use an Abba stand but can't in this instance as it uses the swingarm pivot points :doh: They do do kits that allow it to be attached to an appropriate hanger bolt but... double :doh:...
