  1. I have modified my wiring and would like a diagram without markups. I will pm my email addy. Thanks !!
  2. Google knows all. @stewgnucould you output your diagram to a .psd file and post it ?
  3. StewGNU does procreate output to any editable formats ? Like Visio or Autodesk ?
  4. To get a wire ring out, use a flat blade screwdriver to push the end DOWN out of the groove 1st. Pushing down is much easier than trying to pry up. Once down, slip a flat feeler gauge under the tip of the wire, then slide the end up using a hook or flat blade. Be ready when it pops out.
  5. Continuing the nonsense - The original Plastic Bertrand version (original French lyrics, don't match video above) - ♫ Plastique Bertrand ♪ Ca Plane Pour Moi (Discoring 1978) ♫ Video & Audio Restored HD - YouTube The same song done by Brit punks (completely different lyrics) Elton Motello Jet Boy Jet Girl - YouTube
  6. They are selling a bunch of V85TT's. But it's up against the BMW R1250GS. So, I bet the "new" engine/bike is a VxxTT with a liter or plus engine.
  7. Biggest effect? Canceled my moto trip to Spain last year, and my trip to the Himalaya's this summer is hanging by a thread. Lucky that I'm a engineer by profession and have been able to work from home no problem. Personally, I'm very strict on public interactions and so far, so good. Wife is eligible and scheduled for vaccine at the end of the month. I'll have to wait a bit.
  8. Looks like part #29 is splined and the splines have been ground off. The photo, looks like spline remains above the blue arrow closest to the gear.
  9. (Can't find eating popcorn icon) My Scura needs all the same. Love to follow along.
  10. Mike, lemme know if you want to shake that LM down some. The Scura needs a ride.
  11. BTW, I would use Time-Serts over HeliCoils. https://www.timesert.com/
  12. If you are helicoil-ing a block, you need a bottoming tap, not a tapered tap. The tapering tap can be helpful to cleanly cut the 1st couple of threads at the top of the hole, then finish in with the bottoming tap.
  13. Sparklehorse does the greatest version of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here".
  14. This is a helpful resource for finding ethanol free gas. Unfortunately, at least in Arizona, most of the ethanol free is not available at pumps, but rather in 5 gallon cans. http://www.pure-gas.org
  15. To answer the original question, no a resistor would not work. The voltage drop across a resistor is the resistance * current. The current will be strong on a weak battery and low on a strong battery so the voltage will vary.
  16. I'm looking for an editable source file. The spine drawings from 1999 and 2004 don't exactly match my 2002. I've asked Carl if he has source.
  17. Do source files for the wiring diagrams on thisoldtractor exist anywhere ?
  18. None of the in tank electronics "spark". If they do, that's badness. And yes, the pump motor is brushless. Edit - I don't think the pump is brushless in early 2000's. The brushless motors are becoming more common. I know this because my company build the controller chips used for these motors. (A good business for us!). It's the concentration of the fuel vapor that prevents explosions. From Google - "The reason electric, tank- mounted fuel pumps do not cause explosions is that the concentration of fuel vapors is too high to allow an explosive mixture. The volatile (which
  19. I like the NEP throttle lock. Info here -

    Tekno Bags

    Anyone tried to dye the Tekno bags "back to black" ?
  21. I ordered the #"175" tank ring. Still not sure if chinpad and no chinpad caps have the same bolt pattern. I'll report findings when my part gets here.
  22. Also, @KINDOY2, does the gas cap open all of the way or does it interfere with the inside of the ring? Will a %$#% California emissions gas hose fit in the gas cap opening with the ring on?
