    Take over, Marc! Apparently the screwing is different on the Wetheads, 'tho the switch pod may still mount to a tab as it does on the Hexes.

    The screw that Marc points out is one of the two self-tapping screws that fasten the plastic tube to the bar; the other screw is 180゜around the circumference of the bar.

    I don't have a wethead, but I wonder if the controls might be mounted as they are on my '07 R12R.

    R12R Left Side:

    The clutch lever (including the master cylinder and reservoir) has its own...

    There's a child forum (Tech Library) under Hexhead/Camheads. There, you'll find this.

    I would expect so. Good flow to the pressure side of the injectors suggests that the injectors themselves are a problem. (Maybe not the only one: you report inconsistent spark as well.) Stlll, if the...

    I wouldn't doubt that at all, Rinty. I suspect the national forests (and USFS) are perceived by the Congress as lesser than the national parks (and NPS), with budget allocations to their departments...

    It's possible to have injectors cleaned.
    If you had water in the tank, you will have to replace the fuel filter as well - even a little water will clog it.

    Wunderground's map show two cams in the area, but both are well north of Springville and well off CA190. In any event, Springville's elevation is ~1000 feet; even a bit up CA190 at Camp Nelson the...

    The roads asked about by the OP are in the Sequoia National Forest, not in Sequoia National Park. These are different places. I've never been able to find road info on the USFS (national forests)...

    David13's right: it is difficult from a distance to learn the condition of these roads.

    CA190 runs from the Central Valley only up to Quaking Aspen (although the highway number applies again from...

    Jim,

    Going in the tank is also a great opportunity to replace the in-tank rubber hoses, which age (just like everything else) - even if you leave the filter mounted inside. The bike is, after all,...

    The fuel filter can be impaired with as little as a single tank of bad gas, and if partially blocked will generate the symptoms you've experienced. Having it new 9K miles ago is no guarantee that...

    I think the camera's very wide lens exaggerates the severity of the drop offs and the narrowness of the path. Still, even if in reality the path is a bit wider and less exposed-feeling than it...

    The ball-and-socket joints should be disassembled, cleaned, lubed, and reassembled. This alone can make a world of difference. Note that each joint requires the removal of a tiny spring clip before...

    All true. I've never heard of a state or local entity creating a HOV lane without federal funds; none of the Southern California toll roads have HOV lanes. Likewise, I have never heard of a local...

    Darryri correctly reviews the California motorcycle environment, with one exception.



    Motorcycles can use HOV lanes even where (like I saw on I-210 yesterday) the signs do not mention bikes and...

    Take the relay out, and see if the headlight will then fit. It'd at least confirm your speculation about what isn't fitting in its current configuration.

    This ad raises red flags for me too. It may well be a scam. Thus, if you a) can't see it before buying, and b) they won't let you take it to a mechanic to look at before buying, then walk in the...

    p,

    I won't be using the Emgo; I really like the pre-2005 Oilhead ribbed ones better. I think they can be installed over the heated elements on my '07 R. This thread on ADV Rider makes it look...

    Thanks for the link, d martin. Those are great pictures and help a lot.

    And I like the Oilhead-style grips even more than the old-school ones I was looking at before. Now to see if I can find them!
