  1. sl650 bogs when accelerating from idle

    I revived an SL650 that had been sitting for about 18 years. I rebuilt the carbs (needle & seat, gaskets, diaphragms, did NOT change jets but cleaned them), replaced all fuel lines and upgraded to a...

    I don't know. That was one of my questions, if there's a way to bypass the CDI to crank the engine if the CDI is completely dead.

    SL900, good project or not?

    I came across a '96 SL900 for what seems like a good deal. Guy says the CDI is bad. Is there any way to bypass the CDI to crank these? The 900s don't seem to be very common, so if the engine is shot,...

    I didn't realize the sound was on when I was recording. The noise was me bumping the starter to move the piston.

    I'll take a read through that thread. Thanks!
  5. Can anyone give feedback on my piston wash?

    I got a scope and started looking down the cylinders, but I have no idea what I'm seeing, and was wondering if one/some of the experts could tell me how this looks.

    Here are my thoughts:
    The...

    I'm pretty new around here, but from what I've gathered, the translucent/clear fuel lines are ill advised, especially between the pump and fuel tank, because they have a tendency to collapse under...

    '95 SL650, needle/seat

    What is the stock needle and seat size for a 95 sl650? And is there a difference for low altitude vs. High altitude?
  8. '95 SL650, ok to run with jet pump disconnected?

    I'm working on the carbs now and have the jet pump rebuild kit on the way. Is it ok to run the engine to tune the carbs with the jet pump disconnected?

    Carbs are out! I'll start the overhaul tomorrow.
    It looks like the return hose with the brass restrictor is blocked with crud, so I'll be fixing that.

    Roger that. I'll give it a test in some gas. If it does float, what's the next thing to look at?

    Thanks for the response!
    I'll check on the vents you mentioned. Would those be responsible for the excess oil? If not, is this just a simple case of no fuel reaching the cylinders, and a carb...

    '95 SL650, won't start

    New guy, first post. Howdy.

    My wife's parents are letting us use their SL650 if we can get it running. History is they bought it new and used it regularly for 6 or 7 years. After that it,...
