I ordered a cap and coil, because 1 I'm lazy, if I'm gonna tear it down to check it, its cheap enough to throe a new one in, and 2, with 3 500's it won't hurt to have a spare. I'm located in California, San jose area.

electrical gremlin?

Ok, so i sorted my last problem with an air leak out, now another issue. The bike started intermittently cutting out, very minor at first, but eventually acting like i was pushing the kill switch. I disconnected the switch, but still acted up, even completely dying a time or two. It seemed to mostly...

strange fueling issue

So I was riding over Thanksgiving and one day my bike was running great, the next it started winding up, as if the fuel was shut off, but it wasn't. If I pulled the choke on, it would idle back down. Any thoughts where to start looking?

FYI it is a 97 motor with a pwk carb.

Why is the GPR the only choice? I have a Scotts on my 01 af. Its a Low mount. NOT a sub mount, a LOW mount, it mounts between the fender and the lower triple clamp.

Not my bike, but the same mount.

Seems about like what I found out. I put a set off a 97 on my 92. Rear bolted right up, front was a big axle, so I swapped in a set of 2000 forks and caliper.

Yep low mount is totally the way to go! But if you are interested in another, better hurry. I talked to a tech at scotts the other night and he was amazed I had recently purchased one from them for my 450x. Apparently they only made them for a few years, and quit producing them quite a while ago

best coolant option

I cant for the life of me remember where i read about it, but i swear i read about a coolant substitute that is supposed to be worlds better than water wetter or engin ice. Any one have a clue what im talking about? or did i bump my head when i broke my arm?
