  1. Did anyone else find it odd that it kept revving at 2k+ even when the fast idle lever was turned all the way down and it was only just a little over 100°F? mine will idle at less than 1k if I do that. With it instantly shutting off like that, I think a fuel pressure check would be good too.
  2. I was just going to suggest trying to bump up the idle speed. What is the current idle speed before it dies? If I remember correctly, it should be around 1200-1300 when warmed up.
  3. Like DannoXYZ said, a leakdown test on the low cylinder can pinpoint the issue. That will take a lot less time than pulling the engine and swapping another one in. When it dies, does it slowly idle down and die, or just shut off like you hit the kill switch? I agree that even on 3 cylinders, it should rev past 2000 rpm. Sounds like there is another issue.
  4. I would replace the spark plugs, and run a heavy dose of fuel system cleaner. I second the question of "what is the idle speed set to?" It may just be idling too low. Are you using the fast idle (looks like a choke) lever when starting?
  5. You should seriously check out the blog posts and how-to's at v4dreams.com He does a great job at restorations and has some very good tips for saving plastics and other original parts. I go just to see what the guy is up to every week.

  6. Life is good. The track pig is now wearing Dunlop Q4 tires, and some new EBC EPFA brake pads, and I just put new seals in the forks. Heading to Road America in August! Hoping to run in the high 2:40s for a time.
  7. Is the clutch slave cylinder working properly? Fresh-ish fluid and bled?
  8. Same thing here. I thought they looked great.
  9. They seem to have pretty bad reviews when I look them up. Sounds like a lot of customers never receive their order.
  10. If this would fit a 5th Gen, I'd probably be in for one. My center stand doesn't contact my two brothers exhaust in the correct place.
