Re: TPS help needed

Bridging it allows you to set it up using the lcd display on the dash, it can also be done without bridging and using a multimeter instead which can be far more accurate. The idea is to synchronise the throttle opening with the electronics that control the fuelling to your throttle bodies. Once set ...

Re: Winter battery care

If it's not going to be used for a long period, remove battery and charge it with a low current charger(less than 1amp) until it is fully charged. Then disconnect, leave in a warmish, dry room and check the voltage every 3/4 weeks, it should only drop a very small amount. When you plan to use bike a...

Re: Side Stand Mod

I took my sidestand off, cut the foot off, ground away about 15mm from the stand and welded the foot back on!

smoothed it all off and worked perfect. once new paint on it couldnt tell it had been messed with.

I no longer have it fitted as I have a sidecar on the bike these days

Re: Odd Stuff in Petrol Tank

I used my fuel pump gasket again as it was in good condition and just coated either side with blue hylomar and it's never leaked in a good few years now

Re: Odd Stuff in Petrol Tank

that looks like that plastic liquid sealant you put in a dry tank and swill it all around to seal it so its probably been leaking in the past.

If its breaking up then it is no use and will almost certainly block fuel delivery to the pump. Any warranty given with the bike?

Re: Stripping rattle can paint off the fuel tank

I wouldnt use any stripper on the tank, its a strange plastic and may not react well. I would sand it back to as smooth as you want it, use a good quality filler/undercoat to give a good solid base and then paint with your sprayer! If you have done plastics before it should be just more of the same....

Re: Red lights & fault codes...

were any of the indications on all the time (not flashing) whilst it happened? Did the bike continue to run normally durint the time of fault indications?

Re: Tanks 1000 v 650

pretty sure the tanks are the same although 650 one may be slightly narrower, just not sure!
If frame is same then fittings should be same to attach the tank.

Re: External oil (?) pipe

A pic would help but I`m pretty sure that's part of your PAIR system.
Is anything leaking from it?
You could just remove it, clean it up, maybe paint it and it should be fine.
Is the bike running fine with no problems?

Re: A new venue for next years gathering?

Looks nice! Good facilities and nearby shops/pubs etc make it a goer but cant get the price page to come up??? Its less than 20 miles shorter for me (exactly 300 miles) than East Kirkby so not much in that really. How far was east Kirkby from you southerners anyway? I am up for having another Raptor...
