Re: ITB Fuel Injection System

It looks like the seals I need for the throttle shafts are $25 each, plus shipping and customs. At this rate, I could do FI and make payments to the credit card instead of monthly payments to carb mechanic.

Re: ITB Fuel Injection System

I had them rebuilt about 4000 miles ago before I left the U S. And I have the SSI ignition. I have had them worked on 3 times in Peru, now the rear carb seems to be leaking around the throttle shaft. Also, it would be nice to get better fuel mileage since gas is so expensive here.

Re: ITB Fuel Injection System

Does anyone know what bike the FI system came from? Gas is $4-5 a gallon in Peru and my carbs are a constant source of problems.

Re: Batteries not charging

Thanks for the suggestions. It was a loose Molex connection. Once we cleaned it, the batteries started charging.

Batteries not charging

I've searched, but I can't seem to come up with the right search words. I have a 710K with increased amps alternator and electronic ignition. While driving home on 5 miles of pavement after bouncing around in the desert, engine quit 4 or 5 times. At steady speed it was like I turned off the key. It ...

Re: Shipping Pinz out of US

I'll know in a day or two what daily storage charge is, and talk to the Customs again, but I'll probably have to cut my losses and do something else.

Re: Shipping Pinz out of US

I didn't know this would happen, so I went to Colombia to wait for the Pinz. I'm there now, but I may have to go back and do something different.

Re: Shipping Pinz out of US

Thanks for the info. As soon as shipper gets back to work I will get started. What if I drive it to Panama and ship from there? Would that be simpler?

Carb float adjustment

I'm finishing my 710K rebuild and I'm having trouble adjusting the floats. With 1mm shims, both fuel levels were about 6mm too high. I bought new needle valves and more shims, thinking that was the problem. Now with 3.5mm of shims, fuel is cut off completely and with 3mm shims, level is back to 6mm ...
