    So they're 34's?

    If the fuel supply is higher than the carbs then the float bowls will always fill by gravity!

    I presume you have a vac system on your carbs. Mine is gravity fed. Would filter under the carbs work with gravity fed?

    Thank you. The 36 was a lazy school boy error....I had it in my head because of a post in this thread. The point 8 however I got wrong, I can see why, I just thought it was lined up on the 0.6. So the good news is I remember how to read a vernier. The bad news is I'm capable of getting it wrong!!!

    Hi Slabbyruss712! How did you get those Ohlins? I mean, are they originally made for GS 1000 or from another model?

    Repairing top shock mount

    you can use a hole saw with the middle drill removed , providing there is enough of the original shock mount left ….If I recall it was a .750" buy measure yours first to be sure ….... after it is cut out , measure the new hole O.D and turn some new mounts...….fit and weld in .

    Yes quite right it's reading 34.8 in picture but as Vernier is not been held square to bore I would say that measurement is wrong anyhow.

    Repairing top shock mount

    Hello, I am building a gsx 1100 et with a bandit 1200 engine. I have a nice bandit swingarm with Lucky 7 shockmounts and a nice set of YSS shocks. So I want to keep it twin shocked. The left top shock mount looked like it was welded before and this evening the thread on the mount snapped off. I am no technician so what is the best way to repair it? Can those mounts be replaced with new ones after some grinding and welding? What are your ideas/examples of repairing? Thanks.

    you wouldn't believe some air could do that, best step up my welding practice lol. Lucky break been off the bike at the time

    HP injection pump killing battery

    Hmm, interesting.. Just pulled this info from another forum regarding Varadero fuel pumps... Haynes has some info Xl-3 model pumup is gq45a Xl-4 to 6 is gq46a Xl-7 on is gq46b Fuel press at idle 46 to 53 psi Minimum fuel delivery 270cc every 10 seconds Taking this info at face value it may well be worth looking into providing the current draw is not too great. I like Artu's idea too..

    Here's the schematic: http://www.iki.fi/arttuh/MSextra/pump_drw.pdf R3 adjusts the duty cycle. Rest of the connections are commented in the diagram. And here's how the thing looks in flesh.

    DTA ECU mapping

    Cheers guys, interesting stuff. I set my coil on time to 3000, injector dwell to 0.8ms at 13 volts and reduced it by 0.1ms for voltage increase and increased it by 0.1ms for voltage decrease...I think. I'll post a picture in a bit. Anyhow, the bike starts and sounds fucking amazing. Cheers Skelly.

    Hond@ Varadero (the later EFI one), some '90s Guzzis, probably a few more

    Split mine twice, and blew it off the back of the carbs more than once as well. All good fun.

    Is that vernier reading 36.60? Just testing to see if I need a digital vernier or do i still remember how to use one...

    I hate vernier calipers - I was using the end of the slide - not where the '0' was ! DOH! Long live Digital Calipers for Idiots - like me LOL!

    Must be my eyes, inlet side looks like 34mm to me? Which would suggest they're off a GSX1100F/G but then again, they don't have a choke knob, but run a cable to the bars!

    Hmmmm! I understand the PWM principle and can glue wires together well enough but creating circuits is beyond my understanding - do you have a sketch or circuit diagram to give it a go....... no point having a 400hp pump when bike only needs a 200hp one!
