Re: S2 won't start.

Hi Craig, All good to know. Steve has pretty good prices for a complete PHM but just a slide is $80. I have no idea how many miles the bike has done. I got it 3 yrs ago and the speedo shows 26,000 miles. Could be any mileage. I'm thinking that I might save myself a lot of trouble just by buying a ne...

If it was me, I'd look at the carbs. You don't need new ones :doh:.
to be fair to my local duke shop, they told me last year that the carbs need replacing, because of wear; it wasn't in response to this failure to start.

Re: S2 won't start.

OK, thanks, I'll get the carbies cleaned. The suggestion about the carbs being clogged sounds about right to me.

S2 won't start.

The S2 has been sitting for about a year, so before trying to start it I went through the following: i) drained tank and both float chambers and put in 10L of fresh 98 octane. ii) replaced front needle and seat (was leaking). iii) cleaned plugs, altho' the BP6HS plugs look nice. iv) charged the batt...

900S2, no spark, one cylinder

bike has sat for a year, wouldn't start. Turned out to be no spark, front cylinder. I swapped the plugs over, still no spark, front cylinder. Swapped the coils, now no spark, rear cylinder. So I'm guessing it's the coil.
Does this sound right?
It has Bosch GT40 coils: do these fail often?
thanks

Re: 1977 900SS

back in the day I fixed my 1977 900SS slipping clutch problem by replacing every second spring with a 450 spring. Gave me a strong L hand but it didn't slip.

Re: best way to remove center stand?

yeah, I've got one of the roll in front wheel things, I should have bought a better one because after tightening it up it was obvious that it wouldn't hold the bike up. I think I'll buy and Anderson stand.

best way to remove center stand?

the center stand of the S2 has had the curly bit that you put your foot on removed, so it's very hard to get up onto the stand. So I want to remove the stand and get a bit welded on. Or maybe put a new stand on, if I can get one. What's the best way to support the bike so that I can get the stand off?

Re: fuel pours out of rear carbie

I took teh bowl off, cleaned up the copper gasket on the bolt that holds it on, reassembled, and it's all fine. Thanks for the help everyone, much appreciated. Soon I might even take it for a ride.

Re: fuel pours out of rear carbie

there is still a slight weep from the carb, I'm suspecting the gasket on the float bowl. I'll replace that on Monday and see how it goes.
