Re: Ironbutt Worthy 'Drive'

WOW. You were in my stomping grounds. Adrian isn't far from me. That seems like some pretty crazy lengths to go to just for an engine!

Re: transmission noise

I don't care if you post your email but I wouldn't do it. Some spam bot will likely read it and you'll likely end up getting more spam. I sent you a PM you should be able to respond to. If not you can email me by using my username at vulcan500 . com. Hopefully you can figure that out and it foils an...

Awesome! Glad I could help. While I always appreciate a free meal, I'd be happier to accept a donation towards paying for this sites next hosting bill. PM me if you're interested in chipping in. FYI I'm just a fellow rider (not a web guy) who made this forum out of frustration at the lack of a forum...

Re: transmission noise

The one sure way to determine if your transmission is eating itself is to do an oil change and see if there are sparkles in your oil. If there are then you are SOL and it's only a matter of time before it eats itself. It's probably easier/cheaper to just get a used engine than to try and fix the tra...

Re: Left cylinder stops firing after engine is warmed up.

well I replaced both spark plug boots reusing the OEM wire. As you can see the new NGK boot is about 4-5mm shorter than the OEM. https://s20.postimg.org/cwqaasj09/IMG_3799.jpg here's the guts of the boot showing the 5K resistor. I already tossed the failed corroded OEM one before thinking of taking ...

Re: Left cylinder stops firing after engine is warmed up.

Well I got impatient. Plus I needed some plug wires for my '89 Honda project so I ran out to Advance Auto Parts and got an Accel 5040R V8 universal plug wiring kit . It has a spiral wound core with 500 ohm resistance per foot. Seeing as how the plug cap had a 5k ohm resistor I was slightly concerned...

Re: Left cylinder stops firing after engine is warmed up.

So it appears I have a bad left plug boot. Apparently the dielectric grease I put in the plug boot years ago didn't make it up to the brass piece that clips on the spark plug. it corroded and no longer "clips" onto the plug wire. I'm not sure why it would work when cold then fail when warm...

Left cylinder stops firing after engine is warmed up.

So this problem started last fall after my bike had set for a while. At first if I rode it with the RPMs up I could get the left cylinder to come back to life. I took an extended ride for about an hour and slowly the left cylinder began to work again. This then degraded into the left cylinder interm...

Re: Crank only turns halfway

Sounds like you have magnet chunks deeper in the engine that are preventing it from turning over.

Re: Belt won't stay centered on rear

It's been a while since I had my EN500A (found a home with my brother in law) From what I remember on my EN500C for the brief time I had the craptastic scootworks belt drive on it which was more difficult to get centered, I adjusted it as follows: 1) I'd get it pretty close with jack stands. 2) go r...
