    Chasing rich condition

    Sorry I dont think I am making myself clear. There are two hoses that fit to the wax idle element ones comes from the thermostat and the other comes from an elbow that links to the water pump. I need to know where these hoses fit to the wax idle unit which one to the top connector and which one to the bottom.

    Yes it is the two hoses that connect to the side of the air filter housing so this is the right hand one on the left hand side that has this t-connector in it. i have added a video if that helps and thanks for the quick reply. 00002.MTS

    Hi adkfinn, I have removed the throttle bodis to replace the thermostat and like yourself replace all the water hoses thoguh now i seem to be stuffed. There are are four small hoses two each side whioch plug into air filter housing. On the left hand side of mind the right hand hose has a very small plactic t-junction connector with nothing connect to the t. Any ideas what should be attached here?

  11. Interesting to read this just done 1930 miles round Europe in a week and on the way back the bike started to sound like a spitfire, seems I have dropped one of the studs and nuts from the rear exhaust where it actually connects to the engine. Regarding suspension...mine is blue as well, I have done all mine last winter, have the forks all rebuilt and powdercoated. also got a new shock from Mr Daugherty. I have to disagree with the other gentleman as I ride nowhere the bikes limits but the difference is beyond belief, it truly is like a different bike.
