Use a gap of 25 thou or 0.6 mm and you will be fine.

You will need to get a gauge from the same type of motorcycle that has the MPH on it. You can either switch the entire gauge which would be pretty simple on a motorcycle or just change the faceplate which would require you to take two gauges apart and reassemble the original one with a new face plate.

Make sure that the face plate speed marks line up. I would suggest getting a gauge with both MPH and KPH on it with the maximum KPH rating as your old one.

Good luck!

The great thing about hydraulic clutches is that they are maintenance free when running OK. Plus you don't need to adjust your clutch ever.
The bad thing is when they foul up it creates problems.

First things first:
Step one: Clean the sludge out of your clutch reservoir.
Step two: bleed your clutch until only clean fluid comes out the bleeder.
Step three: Get a cable clamp and clamp off your cable where it enters your clutch slave cylinder. something like this http://www.getprice.com.au/Stanley-Hose-Clamp-Small-Gpnc_500--54170237.htm
Step four: Remove the banjo bolt holding the cable to the slave cylinder then, remove the clutch slave cylinder. (3 or more bolts).
Step five: clean all the sludge and junk out of your slave cylinder. Check any seals for damage and serviceability. (replace seals/gaskets if required)
Also you might be able slide your clutch actuator rod out and check it for straightness and undue wear. Lightly oil it and put it back in.
Step six: Put it all back together, remove the clamp.
Step seven: Bleed your clutch again to refil your slave cylinder.

Your bike should now like it used to.
If however it doesn't, grap a hold of your hydraulic hose about a 1/3rd of the way down in one hand and work the clutch lever with the other. What your feeling for is the hose excessively pulsing in your hand. If it does that consider upgrading to stainless steel lines cheaper in the long run.
Otherwise it will be a side cover off job and check your clutch plates, friction plates for burn marks and your springs to see if they have compressed to much.

The valve guide seals are the problem. They were probably bad from the factory. The bike has 16 valves times $4 per seal = $64 in seals. The cylinder head gasket is $55 and a head cover gasket set is about $51. tombones49_277.gif

try disconnecting the battery for about 5 minutes then hook it back up to see if that resets the light

Sounds to me your starter has died. You can check this by taking the starter of the engine and connect it directly to a batterie. if it doesn't turn it has died. Otherwise it could be a damaged wire or a loose wire from the stratrelais to the starter or from the batterie to the startrelais. You can check those with a multimeter on the Ohm setting, if it reads infinite it means the wire is broken.If the reading is high it means the wire is damaged.

Hi, it could be one of two items to search out. Your speedometer cable is bad/broken, or the speedometer drive is bad. Both can be fixed.

probably need to clean the injectors, there are specialist companies that use an ultrasonic cleaner and test the injectors on a test bench, for reasonable money

if the light doesn't extinguish itself within a few seconds of starting the bike, then you need to take it to a garage and have a diagnostic check done on it.

Did you drain the carburettor bowls? if not then there maybe water in the bottom of them. you can usually drain them by unscrewing the phillips screw at the bottom of the carb bowl a couple of turns to let the liquid contents drain out. Turn the fuel petcock off to prevent fuel from coming out of the tank while doing this. When all the carbs have been drained, ensure that all the screws are tight and open the petcock and prime the carbs and go for a ride and see if there is any improvement.

check the fan switch relay, and the thermostat. also look at the oil and the water pump.

Sensors in the Fuel Injection system have detected a major problem. The Fuel Injection system will not allow the bike to start if a major problem comes up. Take the bike to a dealer and have them hook up a code reader. This will tell them what triggered the alert. Bear in mind, it may just be a bad sensor.

The clicking tells you that the starter button is working.
Take off your side cover and locate the starter solenoid. You can follow the positive battery cable to it. Touch the two cables bolted onto the solenoid together (you can use a piece of wire, a jumper cable clamp, or an old screw driver) if the starter turns over you have a bad solenoid.
Hold the starter button and gently tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If the starter works you probably need to rebuild the starter by putting in a new set of brushes. If there is anything else wrong with the starter you will have to buy a new one . On most motorcycles parts (other than the brushes) are not available, all you can do is replace the assembly.
