Thanks Trek - the diaphragm on the problem slide is an aftermarket unit (stock had a tear in it), which doesn't have the orientation tab. I made sure to get it in the right orientation when I buttoned it back up...hopefully it doesn't get twisted around in the carb.


It won't.
 You need to drill the lift holes to 3.8mm with JBM diaphragms. It's a bad idea to do just one, better to find a good (or new) OEM or change both

LOL, probably how 90% of people on this site started.
If you intend to keep bike, NEVER count up just how much it's cost, if you intend to sell it at some time, NEVER count up how much it's cost, you'll be crying when you see how much of a loss you have   ;)


Try this again...never read a more true statement right there Crazy !!

My wife keeps asking about how much I have invested in the bike - I just hope she never finds out.

If I go with OEM, I take it that I don't need to worry about drilling the lift holes?

My top clamp from Cognito Moto came in last week - I had them add the integrated LED's and drill out mounts for my gauges. The picture doesn't do it justice - it is a really nice piece. The gauges will come out from the clamp about an inch - I tucked them in close for the picture just to keep them from rolling around.

Better pray rather than hope  ;)
Don't drill lift holes with stock diaphragms,it will have a bad stumble as slides lift too fast

That is a nice piece.
How does it clamp fork leg and how does it compare to original 'dogleg' top yoke?
Being flat I expect you have to slide fork tube up about an inch or so which lowers front end.

From an aesthetics view, I would love to have the front end lowered a bit. But I don't want to get into cutting my fork springs. To clamp onto the forks there is an allen bolt inside the clamp itself. Cognito Moto's site has some good shots of the clamp.
