'92 900ss

Hi Folks,
I have had this '92 900ss for a couple years and enjoy it more all the time. Upgrades include:

Lightweight (and fragile) F/G fairings
Solo seat
Gold valves
Progressive front springs
Separate brake and clutch reservoirs
Aftermarket slave cylinder
Barnett alloy clutch
15/39 sprocket w/520 chain
39mm flatslides
Aftermarket coils
Open airbox
12:1 pistons
D&D high mount cans
Rear fender eliminator
Frame sliders
Custom paint

I am not sure how the white wheels made it on the motorcycle as I know red '92's should have black wheels. Maybe it was originally black?

The decal scheme is a bit of a hodge podge but I have grown to like it. I added the white #1 numberplate to the tail section.

It could be the perfect motorcycle except that it really is not practical below 50 deg with the flatslides unless you want to risk permantly damage your wrists with the requirement to repeatedly pump the carbs.

I find the riding position perfect but the stock solo seat would probably be a pain after a few hours.

Had my first real ride last night on my new-to-me '97 SS/SP after importing the bike to Canada from the U.S. and getting a new back tire (I think the one on it was original, no sh*t, 16K miles, can you say FLAT?). Took it nice and easy on a twisty road along the lake past wineries and orchards to scrub off the new rubber, I have already fallen in love with this bike with the exception of the stock seat. I have visions of me riding it with one of those thick sheepskin seatcovers that the cruisers favor, flappin' in the breeze... not.

Supermono Conversion

Good to see you found some Tapeworks decals.

Other questions on your sliders--are those SpeedyMoto or another brand? Also, did you run a bolt through to both sides. I was thinking maybe a long threaded bolt that is then secured with flat plates and bolts to both sides of the frame where the existing body mount hole is located would provide some structural support if the bike ever did need to use the sliders. Is that what you did?

Thanks again!

Your jetting is off. Try closing the slow air screws 1/4 turn and open the idle mixture (fuel) screws 1/4 turn.

Rereading my post I see that I did not mention that this was only for start up and warm up below 50 deg that I had the problem. Once warmed up it runs great. That being the case, do you think the jetting is still off? I thought that the cold starting issue was just something that you had to live with with carbs w/o chokes.

Thanks for your reply.

Paul, my Keihins require 1-3 twists of the throttle to start the engine, and about 30 seconds of warming up before the engine will take throttle. That's in temperatures down to around 40. If it were my bike, I'd richen it up a bit in cooler weather to make it less of a hassle to start.

Thanks Joe, I will give that a try when cooler weather comes around again.
