Yes, please get a front disc setup. Maybe adjusting the rear shock may help with you kickstand issue.

What did you do with all the old GET stuff?


Here's my sale thread. Got a decent amount of stuff left.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=106445

Also, I just got another kickstand for now, once I get new forks, I'm going to try out the other kickstand again, see if it will fit.

Might be as simple as just adjusting the idle screw to turn up the idle just a bit. Try a quarter turn to start. Also does the carb have a plug on it with a couple wires? That's the auto choke and if functioning properly should help warm up the bike similar to you giving it gas for a couple minutes


Yeah I have an autochoke. The starting issue seems to be getting better, maybe it's just breaking in? I've gone from 2-3 minutes of giving it gas before it idles to less than 30 seconds. And I'll try turning up the idle screw, I just want to make sure, that's the one with the spring that sits on the throttle, right?

Got a rear pic with that exhaust on? I know its for a fatty but i wana see how far it sticks out and how it looks haha!

Def need that front matching wheel.

Good work so far :highfive:


Here's the rear pic:

And the buzzetti kickstand. It's a little too long (irony?) and the bike doesn't sit to the side as much as I would like, so it's a little unstable. I'll probably end up cutting off the end of it so that it sits off to the side more.

On the idling issue - adjusted the idle screw, first to a quarter turn, then half turn. I went farther, but ended up going back to half turn, seems to be the best I could get. Still need to give it some gas to get it idling, but it doesn't seem to be sputtering out anymore. Still getting a lot of backfire when decelerating though, and ideas on that would be appreciated.

Got the kickstand shortened 1 1/2" by a local custom shop. Sits a lot more steady now.

Also got my LED headlight in the mail. Bright & easy to install!

I also switched my main jet from a 98 to a 102 to try and fix my backfiring problem. Seemed to help a little bit, definitely getting less backfire, and no more pop right after I hit the killswitch. It's still running a little lean. I don't have any other slow jets, so I'm going to order some and see what I can do.

i'd try a 120-122 main jet. Turn the air screw all the way down then back it up a half turn.

its a good starting place.

First update in a while. Haven't had it running yet this season, but I'm getting closer the issue. (See help me sub-forum).

Not much has changed because of that, but I did get a new CVT cover w/ open clutch side from a member on the TR facebook page. Also installed the ban jing clutch bell i got a while ago, it looks really good.

Will update again once I get the fuel delivery issue worked out and get it running!

Got it started! Ended up not being an air leak, I had set the float incorrectly last time I cleaned out the carb.

See this thread for solution: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=107149&start=45

I can finally get back to modding! I'm going to relocate my signals to the battery box and get rid of the headlight cage. Also need to change gear oil and re-bleed my front brake, as it's a little off-and-on.

First ride after nearly a year. Felt damn good. Forgot how weird it feels to have the GY6 vibrating your ass off though! :lol:
