If you are going to put the bike on the track (more that 50% of riding time) I would fit some sharkskinz or other race body work on it. On the long run it is going to save you loads of money and your road kit will be in showroom condition. A mate of mine help/teach me to change between the kits. It takes about 2 hours (if you are as slow as me).

Hi Chewie159, 1992 and later touring models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, everything else will be behind the left side panel to access fuses pull back on the front two locking tabs and slide the cover up. Good luck.

2000 road glide runs and then quits, headlights go out and then come back on and I can start the bike again


Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and start tracking the wire from the power side of the circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Hi Wayzach, you could have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker, relay or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

I put a new battery in my 1999 suzuki katana but still have no power going through the bike


Get or make a test light and start tracking. This light needs a wire to ground and a probe. Wire in series, through the bulb.

Clamp ground end on the negative battery terminal. touch probe end to positive termimal, and witness light illuminate. (<< Done at the start of each testing evnet, really annoying to be treaking stuff with a dead light..).

So now you move the probe along your wiring, and witness power along the way. Eventually, the light will not light, and that is an area to explore.

Now, the types of areas that need testing are multiplugs, switches, and terminal blocks.. You cannot get to everywhere, but you do need to get at the key switch area....Your bike may have a main fuse. If this has failed, something pretty heavy is wrong, somewhere. you need to handle BOTH things. Not always easy access. Look for places where stuff moves, flexes, or is exposed to water.

I have a GSXR 750 fuel injected model 1997 I bought for track use only. The problem is that despite fitting a pwer commander the bike will not hold a constant throttle at 7000 rpm its as if there is a rev...


hopefully you don't have a TRE (timing ****** eliminator) on it, if you do take it off, removing it ill make it easier to hold a smooth rpm especially in a turn. Also, the first generation power commander is ****. You can take it off that bike and most likely get the same results on the dyno. Those bikes self adjust whether you put a slip on or full system it and the first generation power commanders were still experimental. I've taken one off of a problematic race bike and personally had better results and faster lap times. I used to road race, now just do track days. I've always owned gixxers and still have 2.

I have just bough a acropovic link pipe can i just fit it to my down tubes and fit it to my acropovic exhaust and will it run ok


yes you can fit it and the bike will run ok but to get the best out of the exhaust in trems of power you should fit a power commander and set the map to the exhaust type you have fitted if you would like to go even further you could get the map set with a dyno HM racing are very good at it but i would only really do this if you want peak power on the track or road racing as the pre set maps from power commader are pretty good hope this helps

Tracking problem


Make a deal with the dealer > You will buy the expensive 880's If he is certain the the tire will fix the tracking problem. If it does not fix the problem, he agrees to find the source of the problem for free even if he has to put a wrench to the bike for a couple of hours to pin down the problem. SOUNDS FAIR TO ME!
