Re: Leaks and Other Issues

All of these are fixable by the end user. You will need tools and buying a jack is pretty much a prerequisite if you want to do anything that requires you to remove a wheel. These easy cheap DIY jack stands may be helpful. http://www.gz250bike.com/forum/showthread.php?t=61 Using these with a regular...

Re: 93 en500-a need help

You could buy a Haynes manual or OE manual. There are PDFs I've seen on the internet if piracy is your thing. I think I may have the OE manual that has the wiring diagrams somewhere. Can you share a picture of what your problem is?

Re: Mircosquirt Fuel Injection Project log.

I haven't made any progress but I do still plan to tackle this. It's been a couple years since I' posted so about this so forgive me if I'm reposting. I found a supplier for new flywheels for EN500As and for new sensors. I'll have to use a EN500A cover so there's a place to mount the sensors. The ea...

Re: Low Compression

I'm disappointed only 204k miles!!! /s I'd say you got your money's worth out of the engine. LOL. It would be interesting to do a tear down on the old engine to see what condition the internals are in, like the timing chain, valves, cylinder walls, etc. I'm guessing that the valve adjustment didn't ...

Re: PM stuck in Outbox

Bill it stays in the outbox until the person you sent it to logs in and views the message. PM me if you need further help with this.

Re: Coldest I've ridden in.

I've tried some Oxford handlebar muffs but they don't work well with the Vulcan 500 LTD's handlebar geometry. Probably even worse on an EN500A. Also I had issues with the freeway wind activating the clutch lever :shock: https://s.yimg.com/aah/yhst-11545572856523/oxford-bone-dry-handlebar-muffs-54.pn...

50 caliber SAW ammo cans, cheap, durable, and lockable. Plust a 12 pack of beverages or a gallon of milk fits easily in one.

Re: Coldest I've ridden in.

WOW that's pretty hardcore! I used to have a 30 mile commute and I had figured out how to keep warm except my hands. What do you use to keep your fingers from freezing? My Olympia Gortex gloves are only good for 30 miles or less depending on the temperature.

Coldest I've ridden in.

So this morning was the coldest weather I've ever ridden in. It was -10F and I have a bout a 7.5 mile commute. I probably couldn't have gone much farther due to my double wall snowmobile visor starting to frost over from my breath and my fingers were starting to get cold. She hasn't been ridden sinc...

Re: Kidney stones and riding :(

Thanks. I can't wait to get back on 2 wheels. If only it would stop snowing long enough for the roads to dry. 6F is the coldest I've ridden in and it's supposed to be in the negative teens F over night the next few days. If the roads are clear I may break my cold weather riding record.

Re: Kidney stones and riding :(

All is right with the world now. Apparently I had a 5mm stone stuck halfway between the kidney and bladder for over 2 months. Thanks to modern technology I avoided the rotorooter treatment and they pulverized it into sand with ultrasonic shockwaves (lithotripsy).
