Yep !  Things are a Changing around my area of TN.    I've noticed there are more people driving like they want to get better MPG from their fuel.  
There are still the few folks who have more fuel and money to buy more than they know what to do with , but most drivers around here have seemed to have backed off the gas pedal a little.

Heck , I'm even driving the little DR200 like gas is almost $5.00/gal. !

Smiley

Anybody else noticing the same ?

What is the status? Might be going for a new engine instead.

I remember when I was doing my oil change about a year ago, using genuine suzuki synthetic oil, I filled it right to the upper mark in the sight glass. Yesterday I went to check the oil, after the bike sat overnight, and the oil is up to almost the top of the sight glass, maybe a millimeter lower. Where's did the extra oil come from?  Grin

I got it to start and idle! I bought a new Duralast gold battery and attached it directly to the leads rather than with jumper cables. It started for a second with starter fluid sprayed into the air-box, so I hooked up the tank with the knock-off petcock and fresh premium. It started and idled while the choke is out! It honestly sounds good, and I'm over the moon about it. Thanks to everyone for the help, especially Dave.

Any amount of throttle or pushing the choke in kills the engine. I think the knockoff petcock is starving it of fuel.

I ordered the proper raptor petcock earlier this week, and that should hopefully arrive tomorrow. I was just getting a little ahead of myself, and I honestly didn't think I would get this far this fast after taking another wack at getting the old thing to start  Grin I'll post back once I get the new PC.

Hello everyone! I'm in the process of learning to ride (taking my class 6/4 & 6/5). After a lot of research, I've decided to get an S40 as I am only 5'2" and want a bike <400 lbs. My husband got back into cycling last year and talked me into giving it a try. Wish me luck and please, provide any and all advice you have!  Smiley



Two concerns to watch out for are loose gravel and 'cagers'.  Good luck!

My best advise from a husband helping a wife learn, don't do ANYTHING  outside of your own comfort zone! I've read horror stories of husband's in this position getting irate with their wives over not being comfortable riding how he rides with a percentage of the experience. When I get the opportunity to ride next to my wife I always let her lead and watch how she's does, we don't discuss anything unless she asks for my input, I've been riding 30 years self taught, she has a few months experience. That being said, if and when you ask for criticism, be open to the answer and know it may not be what you want to hear, but what you need to hear.

Second thing I'd tell any and all new riders, welcome! Ther are two kinds of riders, those who have laid a bike down, and those who will. It's up to you to have the courage to pick that bike up and throw your leg over the saddle again.

As I am installing a new head plug right now, I myself have looked at the o-ring in question. It is on parts list and diagram, it just does not show as diagram is looking from top of head over. I am not replacing mine even though Clymer’s recommends it, as mine seems good and it will be surrounded by sealant. It is I believe actually an o-ring that is just conformed to the shape of fit.
