City Supermoto Ride

This week sometime... Steve, Bug... someone organize and lead. I don't want to touch the interstate. All side streets and bar hops.

My 630 is leaking gas around the fuel pump. I gotta take it apart and figure out if it's a crack in the tank or just a shitty gasket. It doesn't even have 300 miles on it yet, fak.

I doubt I'll make tuesday this week....

That's my fear. How long is it going to take to get a tank or get it fixed?

I can see the gas leaking from under the fuel pump gasket. I'm mostly certain that's the issue. In fact, I've seen the same thing reported on other 630's. Apparently, the tank warps and causes a leak. It's more than a drip a second, so it's significant.

I've already got an email in to MCC. I'll be calling later today, when I have time...

I'm in for Tues and Fri - Need to break this motor in

Chad, thx for the heads up - Did your bike sit for a while? - I read up a bunch on the bike and only saw "Mod Issues" and never anything like yours - Sorry to hear Brah

Bug-It only sat over the winter. By the way, have you done all the standard mods? ---Open up (drill) the airbox, get rid of the snorkel, get rid of that stupid maze thing inside the airbox?

Have not drilled the air box cover - Snorkel removed - "Powered Up" - PC 5 mapped to the Leo Exhaust and the Auto Tune which does just was it says - Maps the ECU as you ride to maximize fuel & air intake - Saw some guy on SMJ who cut "Diamond" shapes into this Air Box Lid and fitted screens on the back - Might do this with the help of Stan this summer as it is suppose to wake the bike up nicely

Cool. I have the JDJetting controller and I really like it, for the price. the PC5 sounds easier, especially with AT.

I drilled the unseen portions of the airbox and it helped a ton.
