Hello Folks,

Still in diagnosis mode. But I noticed something that I just have a few questions about.
On the fuel rail, there is a crimped valve of some kind. It has a screw and O-ring coming out of it.
It pulses when the bike is running.
WTF is that and should the screw be all the way it, so the O-ring is compressed? Mine is out enough that I can see the O-ring completely and it can slide up and down on the screw.

Here is a drawing of what I am talking about:

Yes, I think so too. But I wonder if it can fail?

Yes, I did play with the idle adjustor. It did not improve the performance. Unrelated but I bet this doesn't help air metering...

Thanks, Steve!
So, I did the injector 5 times pulse test and they all sound really good. Also pulses the fuel pump relay. Also solid. I am gonna pull the injectors from the TB and give them a look.
This is how my fuel looked coming outta my tank:

That's a white athletic sock. The tank is so clean, you can barely tell the sock is wet!

I am thinking fuel pump... Gonna see if I can borrow a fuel pressure gauge today.

Hi Steve,

Yeah, I replaced the TPS last year; It was measuring just inside of the tolerance band. And it reports just fine in DIAG.
I am hooking up a fuel pressure gauge, to see if it is at 47psi. Still cleaning and reassembling.
I have done all the Ground Spiders. They are good.
I will report back after I get my fuel pressure gauge installed.

Negative on the valve re-shim. They are still in spec.
Intake Air Pressure sensor, and hose are new and test within specs.
Cam chain Tensioner was done well over a year ago.

I did inspect my gas tank, and it is pristine! No rust, no debris.

Once I reassemble, I will connect my fuel pressure gauge and see what it reports.

Truthfully I am kinda excited to see if:
1. My tool works, and
2. What pressure my pump achieves.

An update...:rolleyes:

So I got Orion back together last evening, and wanted to start it up, to make sure I put everything back together correctly. Bike started and idled...good!

Turned off the bike, and was gonna start fitting my fuel pressure gauge... But I had to restart it for something, now I can't remember...

And the battery is DEAD...Click, Clickety, Click... 11.8VDC The Hell? I just started it and ran it??

Less than 22 months, on this AGM battery.

Off I went to Batteries Plus to get a Lithium battery this time...they don't list one for the FJR... Sigh...

And a further kick in the sack, Texas now charges $0.85/lb to recycle alkaline batteries!!:oops: I had 3 lbs. of batteries...

So, can someone who uses a lithium battery, please give me the Make, model, etc, that will work in our FJRs?

Thanks, and stay tuned...
