    Be sure to refresh that POI regularly. There are about a dozen station adds/removes per day, and the total is still increasing - over 8200 listings now. That's a cool feature with the POI alarm.

    I disagree wrt Wisconsin, a lake state last time I checked. Virtually every rider I pass waves, including all the helmetless Harley folks. Sportbikes, hogs, trikes, you name it. The Amish people...

    I don't mind the normal puffing/popping K75 backfiring. But a loud gunshot that startles me, my wife, and the townfolk is not enjoyable. I prefer not to leave a trail of crying, startled babies as I...

    So, I think I've run the gamut on this one.

    1) Did an oil change with Liquid Moly, which is very cool stuff and may improve compression over a long period. (I bought enough for about 12 oil...

    I could aso try advancing the timing a bit as another experiment (can't help it, I'm a scientist).

    OH, and I will replace the fuel filter soon when it arrives from Bob's. ;)

    Hi, folks, back from vacation (England/Scotland on a Honda ST1300 - sweeeeet!). The injector test was negativo, sealed fine under cranking with electric removed.

    Not sure if I mentioned the engine...

    98lee - that's a very plausible theory, will do. I replaced the Bosch injectors with Ford injectors around 70k, so around 45 k miles ago, as per an old Greg Feeler thread touting them. I do run only...

    You mean where the exhaust header is connected to the exhaust ports? I did spray some brake cleaner around there while the engine was running to see if there was any obvious leakage - nothing. I can...

    Never since I got the bike. :) I should look at that, I guess. I suppose it could vary with advance so that I only get the backfires below 3000 RPM. Not sure why it would only be under engine...

    98Lee - crankcase breather hose is actually new, along with throttle caps - in fact, shortly after those were replaced (but several hundred miles) the backfiring started. I've been checking all...

    Yeah, BCKRider, that would happen because the TPS contacts only close at totally closed throttle, so if you leave a little throttle during engine braking, you can get backfires. But I'm not doing...

    Thanks, 98lee. The TPS checks out as you describe. I took it off as well and saw that it's very clean, the contacts are good, the connector looks good. I'm convinced it's fine, and I'm convinced...
  16. 1991 K75 backfiring - last checks before I buy a new TPS?

    All of a sudden during a ride, about 10 mi out of town, my bike started seriously loudly backfiring during engine braking. I've done the following:

    1. adjusted idle and throttle cable slack
    2....

    Um, yeah, instant throttle response is just a downshift away. I downshift to fourth when passing, and I shortshifted down to fourth from sixth on the RT in Spain. It's all about having a nice...

    Folks, it's hardly a complex formula: power = torque x engine speed. A dyno measures torque as a function of engine speed and the computer multiplies by engine speed to display power as a function...

    Here's why I wish my K75 had sixth gear: cruising on the freeway at 72 MPH. The engine is perfectly happy at 5500 RPM for sure, but I'd prefer, say, 4500 RPM, where the engine still has plenty of...

    Pure Gas stations on way to RA rally

    I took a look at pure-gas.org, and see that there is a BP on the corner of Bridge and Cedar in Chippewa Falls that (supposedly) sells pure premium, probably 91 octane, although the listing says 92.

    Folks recommend the BMW air filter because it has the groove that fits onto the airbox lip. Plus, it's designed to provide the correct air flow, I think the K&N will tend to provide more air. I got...

    Well, in fifth gear, you're not too far above the 6250 RPM torque peak at those speeds, so the bike is quite happy. Yeah, it gets noticeably louder at those speeds, but it's definitely built to ride...

    I bought my '91 no-ABS pre-catalytic converter K75RT on 5/30/08 with 65,000 miles on it for $3300 and it's been a total joy. Yes, I've done some upgrades and repairs - the rear drive gave out at...
