  1. I just purchased an '07 Royal Star Venture with just under 10,000 miles on it. She is my first liquid cooled motorcycle, but I think that she is making too much engine heat as my feet are getting too warm and I am feeling more heat than I think that I should for a liquid cooled bike. Granted the ambient temperatures are a bit warm here in Georgia, but I still think she is running a bit warm. I had the coolant system flushed about three weeks ago but no change. I do not have a hot engine light at all. Would really like to get this fixed. My next step is to replace the thermostat, but looking for some advice first. Thanks. Verner
  2. November 17 and still ridding!! Gota just love it. Any suggestions for a good set of snow tires for the old girl!!! Rode today and loved it!! 0C at 8am on my way to work. Roads were dry and standing water was still liquid. 4C when I left for home. Going to safely push it as much as I can. My goal is drive it at least once a month. With the weather we been having it may be possable.
  3. A little boy was sitting on the roadside with a bottle of Turpentine.He was shaking it up and watching all the bubbles. A priest came along and asked the little boy what he had. The little boy said, 'This is the most powerful liquid in the world Turpentine. The Priest said, 'No, the most powerful liquid in the world is Holy Water. If you rub it on a pregnant woman's belly, she'll pass a healthy baby. The little boy replied,well if you rub turpentine on a cat's a**, he'll pass a Harley Davidson
  4. I was over on triketalk.com and was reading a thread about how hot the HD Triglide is and how much modifications and $$ they have to put into there stock trikes to just make them bareable to ride. Wouldn't it make more sense to just buy a liquid cooled trike? Don't get me wrong, I like HD, but not if it's going to cook my butt and other things.
  5. The poo list (edited for I hope a PG rating) *** Warning *** This page contains a butt-load of scatological humor. If you don't think feces can be funny stop reading here. Now that you're bursting with curiosity read on... POO LIST !!! ------------------------ THE GHOST POO - The kind where you feel poo come out, see poo on the toilet paper, but there's no poo in the bowl. THE CLEAN POO - The kind where you feel poo come out, see poo in the bowl, but there's no poo on the toilet paper. THE WET POO - You wipe your ass fifty times and it still feels unwiped. So you end up putting toilet paper between your ass and your underwear so you don't ruin them with those dreadful skid marks. THE SECOND WAVE POO - This poo happens when you've finished, your pants are up to your knees, and you suddenly realize you have to poo some more. THE BRAIN HEMORRHAGE THROUGH YOUR NOSE POO - Also known as "Pop a Vein in your Forehead poo". You have to strain so much to get it out that you turn purple and practically have a stroke. THE CORN POO - No explanation necessary. THE LINCOLN LOG POO - The kind of poo that's so enormous you're afraid to flush it down without first breaking it up into little pieces with the toilet brush. THE NOTORIOUS DRINKER POO - The kind of poo you have the morning after a long night of drinking. It's most noticeable trait is the tread mark left on the bottom of the toilet bowl after you flush. THE "GEE, I REALLY WISH I COULD POO" POO - The kind where you want to poo, but even after straining your guts out, all you can do is sit on the toilet, cramped and farting. THE WET CHEEKS POO - Also known as the "Power Dump". That's the kind that comes out of your ass so fast that your butt cheeks get splashed with the toilet water. THE LIQUID POO - That's the kind where yellowish-brown liquid shoots out of your butt, splashes all over the side of the toilet bowl and, at the same time, chronically burns your tender poop-chute. THE MEXICAN FOOD POO A class all its own. THE CROWD PLEASER - This poo is so intriguing in size and/or appearance that you have to show it to someone before flushing. THE MOOD ENHANCER - This poo occurs after a lengthy period of constipation, thereby allowing you to be your old self again. THE RITUAL - This poo occurs at the same time each day and is accomplished with the aid of a newspaper. THE GUINESS BOOK OF RECORDS POO - A poo so noteworthy it should be recorded for future generations. THE AFTERSHOCK POO - This poo has an odour so powerful than anyone entering the vicinity within the next 7 hours is affected. THE "HONEYMOON'S OVER" POO - This is any poo created in the presence of another person. THE GROANER - A poo so huge it cannot exit without vocal assistance. THE FLOATER - Characterized by its float-ability, this poo has been known to resurface after many flushings. THE RANGER - A poo which refuses to let go. It is usually necessary to engage in a rocking or bouncing motion, but quite often the only solution is to push it away with a small piece of toilet paper. THE PHANTOM POO - This appears in the toilet mysteriously and no one will admit to putting it there. THE PEEK-A-BOO POO Now you see it, now you don't. This poo is playing games with you. Requires patience and muscle control. THE BOMBSHELL A poo that comes as a complete surprise at a time that is either inappropriate to poo (i.e. during lovemaking or a root canal) or you are nowhere near pooting facilities. THE SNAKE CHARMER A long skinny poo which has managed to coil itself into a frightening position - usually harmless. THE OLYMPIC POO - This poo occurs exactly one hour prior to the start of any competitive event in which you are entered and bears a close resemblance to the Drinker's poo. THE BACK-TO-NATURE POO - This poo may be of any variety but is always deposited either in the woods or while hiding behind the passenger side of your car. THE PEBBLES-FROM-HEAVEN POO - An adorable collection of small turds in a cluster, often a gift from God when you actually CAN'T poo. PREMEDITATED POO - Laxative induced. Doesn't count. POOZOPHERENIA - Fear of pooing - can be fatal! ENERGIZER vs DURACELL POO - Also known as a "Still Going" poo. THE POWER DUMP POO - The kind that comes out so fast, you barely get your pants down when you're done. THE LIQUID PLUMBER POO - This kind of poo is so big it plugs up the toilet and it overflows all over the floor. (You should have followed the advice from the Lincoln Log poo.) THE SPINAL TAP POO - The kind of poo that hurts so much coming out, you'd swear it's got to be coming out sideways. THE "I THINK I'M GIVING BIRTH THROUGH MY A$$HOLE" POO - Similar to the Lincoln Log and The Spinal Tap poos. The shape and size of the turd resembles a tall boy beer can. Vacuous air space remains in the rectum for some time afterwords. THE PORRIDGE POO - The type that comes out like toothpaste, and just keeps on coming. You have two choices: (a) flush and keep going, or (b) risk it piling up to your butt while you sit there helpless. THE "I'M GOING TO CHEW MY FOOD BETTER" POO - When the bag of Doritos you ate last night lacerates the insides of your rectum on the way out in the morning. THE "I THINK I'M TURNING INTO A BUNNY" POO - When you drop lots of cute, little round ones that look like marbles and make tiny splashing sounds when they hit the water. THE "WHAT THE HELL DIED IN HERE?" POO - Also sometimes referred to as The Toxic Dump. Of course you don't warn anyone of the poisonous bathroom odor. Instead, you stand innocently near the door and enjoy the show as they run out gagging and gasping for air. THE "I JUST KNOW THERE'S A TURD STILL DANGLING THERE" POO - Where you just sit there patiently and wait for the last cling-on to drop off because if you wipe now, it's going to smear all over the place. The "TURBO-CHARGER" POO - You're sitting there, minding your business, so to speak, thinking everything is normal, and suddenly there is a totally unexpected, yet full and robust passing of wind, followed by more, perfectly normal poo. This typically results in a completely soaked behind. THE FLOCK OF SEAGULLS POO - You drank some very yeasty beer the night before, you're driving along the only stretch of freeway with no service station for the next 50kms, you skid to a halt when you get there, drop your pants on your way in to the trap, and there's an immediate explosion, followed by the realization that there's a new mottled wall-paper on the wall behind the bowl. The THE "PICASSO" POO - the artwork left in the bowl after the flush. THE THE "DEGOBAH BOG" POO - When the poo isn't liquid but makes the water in the toilet murky and bog-like. Often you get the feeling there's a droid-eating monster lurking in there, too. -----------------------------end of poo-------------------------------------
  6. I like to get some opinions concerning which is better in checking the vacuum. Gages or the Carbtune11 or the carbtune PRO with no liquid???? Thanks:dancefool:

    Which kind of plexus do you use? Do you use the one in a spray can or the kind that is liquid and comes in a bottle labeled 1, 2, or 3? I went to my local yamaha shop and they didn't have it in stock so you had to order it and the only thing that they showed was in the liquid bottle. Thanks hairman
  10. Today I built one of the carb sync tools using the clear tubes, rubber stoppers, and transmission fluid as the liquid. The tubes are 18" long and I put about 4" of liquid in each. The unit looks just like the many posted on here before. After warming up the bike I connected the four tubes to the carbs, started the bike and all of the liquid was sucked into the #4 tube and was bouncing violently up and down and fluid was sucked into the carb. I finally got it settled down in tube #4 adjusting on both sides and some liquid was now in #3, however, bouncing up and down violently. The entire time no liquid in 1 and 2 tubes. I shut it down and added liquid back to the 4" starting point in each tube. Started it up and the same thing. I shut it down, thinking the carbs were way out of sync I set the three screws the same number of turns. Tried it again and the same thing. Shut it down and put it all back together. Never did get any liquid in 1 and 2 tubes. I tried adjusting the sync srews via the tach (plugs and hose back on) and could get the rpms to move up and down. Kept adjusting until the rpms were at the highest on all three screws then could not get it to idle down to 1000. I noticed the idle adjustment screw was not touching the plate. The only way I could get it to idle down was by adjusting the screw on #1 and 2 carbs. I assume my cable needs adjusted? Any thoughts on the liquid problem in the #4 tube and lack of fluid in the #1 and 2 tubes?
  11. Need info. on how to seat bead . Used dish washing liquid and 80 lb psi no luck . jmc
  12. as everyone knows, these mkII's won't run worth a tinker's dam, without the air filter in place. mine will run JUST long enough , without the "enrichment lever at about 1/2, to see that the #4 diaphragm doesn't move when you turn the throttle.then it dies. need troubleshooting help on this one. i had the diaphragms all out a few months ago, and did the "liquid tape " repair on a few small cracks and pinholes. question is WHY is #4 the only one that doesn't dance? it isn't "frozen up", as i can move it manually. any help would be greatly appreciated. just jt:confused07:
  13. For those of you that just can not seem to let go of a couple of hundred bucks to replace your diaphragms, even though you know they need it, there is an alternative. Over the years I have tried several things to fix the existing pin holes to get me through one more season of riding. I have tried Yamabond, Seals All, silicon and maybe even something else. Last year I bought a set of carbs off ebay and even though the diaphragms did have some pins holes in them, they had been unmolested. I had heard from someone on here about a product called Liquid Tape. Well, as an update of about a year later, I want to say that it works very well. I took my carbs apart and in particular looked at the diaphragms that I patched last year and they looked very good. There was only one small hole that I needed to repair and either it was new, or I missed it last year. The great thing was the Liquid tape was still sticking real good and was still very pliable, much more than a little bit of Yamabond. I believe the trick to it is to make sure you get the hole area prepared before putting the Liquid Tape on. What I do is spray the area with brake cleaner and then clean it good with alcohol. After blowing it off a bit with compressed air, I will smear a little Liquid Tape over the area where the hole is. Then I will let it dry over night before I put it back together. I have seen Liquid Tape available at several places, but I originally bought mine at a NAPA store. It is made to be put over wires or connections to seal them. It also must have some pretty good resistance to gasoline. For those of you that want to get a little more life from your diaphragms and make your bike run better and get better gas mileage, this will sure help. RandyA
  14. Hey Ventureriders I patched up my diagphrams with liquid electrical tape last year and they worked great, however when I took the carbs apart last weekend to clean them I found the liquid tape was peeling off. I heard that some guys are using Plastidip for this and was wondering if it lasts longer. I know the real solution is new ones but 2-3 hundred bucks are not that easy to find and this Forum is 'poor man tips and fixes.'
