Well, since I started the thread after February, I guess its lost. Bummer.
As you may recall, I couldn't get the 02 RS started. I began with changing the battery, that wasn't it. Then pulled the plugs, they needed to be replaced. Still no go. I pulled the tank, yanked the fuel pump, tested it. The fuel pump was good, so I pulled the filter and cleaned it. I cleared the fuel lines with compressed air. I pulled the fuel rail, the pressure regulator, and diconnected each injector. I cleared the rail and regulator with compressed air. Each injector was cleaned with a toothbrush and comp air. I reassembled everything and bought a gallon of fresh gas. Leaving the gas gauge out, I was able to watch the operation of the fuel pump and made sure all the air was purged out of the fuel system. A quick check of all parts to make sure there was no gas leak, and I was set.
I danced in a circle while saying the magic words boom shakalaka, then said a small prayer.
I pressed the starter button, and she went!!! Massive smoke coming out of the exhaust, but no rough idle, no misfire, no other problems. After 10-15 minutes of running the smoke went away.
It took me another 40 minutes to finish buttoning up the tupperware, after which i went for a ride. It was FANTASTIC!!! I missed riding that bike, so I'm gonna make up for it. I loaded the wife up and went for a ride yesterday through the twisties, scared the crap outta her on a couple of corners that I took a little fast.
I owe a huge round of thank you's to everyone that helped me through this.
I hope I get a chance to ride with some of you some day.
