  1. Hi Steve, trying to remove jet pump from 2001 Ultra 130 di. I believe it is just 4 bolts and 2 from the ride plate. Before I start to pull it, I want to make sure there is nothing else I need to disconnect. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

  3. Hi Steve
    Hope it's OK to private message you....

    I swear I saw somewhere that opening a passage on CV carbs makes the vacuum slide more responsive.
    Have you heard of this?
    If so, please guide me to do it if it helps.

    seems like engine is sluggish to respond and I thought this might be good to do.

  4. I would like to rent your heavy duty pullers you made for the Ultra 150. Can't get the top two studs to break free. My phone number is 5743202265. Thank you.

  6. Steve hey I just picked up an 99 ultra 150 with 40 hours. Pretty sure the pump bearings went. Can I buy or rent your puller. Let me know. Thankyou.

  8. Hi Steve
    My friend who is not speaking english ask me to help with his STX1100 from 2003. Display has the corossion on the PCB and is not working. Is there any chance to bypass the display? i read the schematic diagram and in my opinion there is no chance. the big corrion is on IC5 TR8 and LED1 so without detailed schematic it will be too difficult to repair. do you have any knowledge about who can repair it ?
  9. Hey Steve, Its been a while but I still have my 04 Kawasaki STXR and was running great until yesterday. The temp sensor comes on periodically and sends the engine to limp mode. Usually happens around full throttle and after about 5 seconds its right back to normal. There is constant and heavy flow of water out of the pissers even at idle so I was wondering if you had any ideas. The repair shop I go to is really backed up and I was wondering if you had any steps I could take as a guy who's not super mechanically inclined to diagnose the problem.
    Thanks in advance,
  10. Hi Steve, came across your ultra 150 jet pump puller. Still renting? I could really use it!

    Call or text me please! 631-879-8200
