Double check those magnets in your rotor. I can't see them in the pic above, so make sure there is equal space between them while you have the engine accessible.

Today I cleaned both side covers (clutch cover and generator cover). I removed the nasty stuff left by the original gaskets.






And since I didn't want to re-use those ugly original gaskets, I created my own using a thin layer of RTV Gasket Maker (black high-temp silicone).






... and proceeded to install the covers:










... off to bed now.






Tomorrow I'll install the head covers and re-assemble the bike. ;D




Oh, by the way, that Walmart carb cleaner is my best friend for keeping things clean... but if you're going to use it, make sure to keep the work pace well vented or you will experience a sudden rush of unexplainable joy and happiness.

Installing the exhaust system... a major pain, specially the rear one. Those bolts have to come into one of the hardest to reach holes you can imagine.




But I did it!








Yes, ugly sticker is going bye bye

She's alive!!!!


I still have a FI error showing on the display so I'll be checking that up today. But she roars like a big beast already.

I'll post pics and maybe a video later today.

The FI error was just a TB sensor that I missed connecting.



She pulls like a locomotive!


A few minutes ago, passing the safety inspection.




I just need to re-install the fairings and she'll be 100% ready. :rock:

Good work. I was hoping the FI would be that simple.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html
