Installed the Booster Plug today-and other fun things
Again...I would like to thank all the people on this board who post helpful hints and provide guidance on maintenance and improvements.
Thanks to you this weekend I did the following:
1. BB Metal QRs - I had a small leak with the OEM and it looks like there are small cracks in the plastic where the male end goes into the tanks. I installed the metalQRs using the goop BB provided and it leaked like crazy on power up so I used some teflon tape on the pipe threads and re-installed and the leak is gone.
2. Booster Plug -
3. Removed stepper solenoid
4. Capped off SRS to eliminate the backfires with the 2 Bros
5. Capped off charcoal canister
6. Replaced O2 sensor
7. Cleaned air filter
8. Tried to remove my broken and bent center stand, but one bolt will not even move!!
Took the bike out for a quick spin around the hood and noticed quite a difference at low speed. No more chug chug chug going slow in first gear anymore. Smoother power from idle up to 6000 rpm. I can't wait to get the CS off so I can zip tie the bottom of the side panels into the holes and go out and flog the thing and see how she reacts.
Taking the tank off is no big deal at all and I made way too big a deal out of it. Yes Dave you were right....again!!! The first time you do something on this beast can be a little intimidating, but take your time and go slow. Once the plastic is off the tank can be removed in less then 5 minutes.
Thanks again for your support and help everyone!!!
