    Lightbulb Re: HOW TO: fix your new to you x2. READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST A NEW THREAD asking how

    How to replace the cooling water tube in your X2 due to a broken/cracked tube,
    or to upsize the tube for better cooling flow!

    This upsizing of the existing tube, or replacement of a cracked tube, is shown
    doing the work on the STOCK EXHAUST PIPE OVERBOARD DRAIN TUBE.
    (with a flashlight or such on one end, and you can look thru the other end of the tube
    and see the light, you can do the tube replacement like this)

    (click the picture)


    The stainless tubing has "teeth" cut into it with a cutoff wheel




    The stainless 3/8 tube fits right into a drill chuck like a long drill bit:


    Before:


    After:


    Comes out exactly in the stock location (picture is upside down)


    You can clearly see the huge I.D. size difference between the stock cooling line and the new stainless 3/8" tube in this picture:


    Once you have drilled all the way through and removed the stock tube, cut it to length (about 26.5")
    and SEAL BOTH ENDS AROUND YOUR NEWLY INSTALLED TUBE WITH 3M 5200!
    Make sure some gets inside the hull and this will also hold it in place for good!

    Even if the broken/cracked stock tube isnt straight thru, you can use the same method to install a brand new tube in a different location, you just wont have the old tube to guide you thru the hull,
    so you will have to take care to aim correctly so you end up in a decent location in the
    engine bay. When you are finished, just cut off the old broken ones and seal off with 5200 or the like.
    If you have any questions about this mod, feel free to PM or email me!

    Re: HOW TO: fix your new to you x2. READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST A NEW THREAD asking how

    X2s are notorious for getting the water separator filled with water because of the hose routing up the steering controls tube. If you dont constantly empty the water from the separator, the result is water in your gas tank, which can lead to more serious issues...You can do a much better job of keeping water out of the fuel tank by removing the uneeded items. All that is needed is a short hose and the check valve. Remove all the other items in that assembly. VERIFY that your check valve works by blowing through it each way. It should only let air pass one direction. If it lets it pass both ways, replace valve.
    Install valve so air flows into tank (air in, no vapors out).



    This is all you need:

    Mikuni Arm Springs, aka "pop off springs", are sometimes hard to identify,
    here is a little guide to assist you.

    There are basically 4 springs designed for the Mikuni SBN (Super BN) carburetor.
    Each spring is made in a different process to achieve the exact tension, which
    results in different colors and lengths. The tension rating of the spring is measured
    in grams of weight, 115g, 95g, 80g and 65g. Below is a picture of all 4 springs.
    The colors are not great in this picture but you can clearly see the lengths, and I
    noted them below as I measured them this morning.

    The silvers are the hardest to identify by color alone, but if you look carefully at
    the 95g spring, you can see it is wound backwards (left-to-right) from all the rest
    (right to left). That is the easiest way to differentiate the 95 "dull silver" and the 65
    "shiny silver". Also the 95 is approx. 1mm longer than the 65

    The 80 "black" spring is the easiest to identify, from its obvious color.
    It is also the shortest of all the Mikuni springs.

    IMO the 115 "platinum" is about the shade of glossy galvanized metal. This is the
    longest spring made. You may also find some 115 springs that are colored "gold".
    These are older Mikuni 115 springs, no longer made due to increased
    emissions regulations in Japan. The two are identical otherwise.



    Measurements are close but maybe not EXACT!
    115 "platinum" = 17.00mm
    95 "dull silver" = 15.75mm
    80 "black" = 14.5mm
    65 "shiny silver" = 14.75mm

    And lastly, the Mikuni Pop-Off Pressure chart:


    If you need more information about your Mikuni SBN carburetor including
    exploded parts diagrams tuning basics and tips, or the complete
    Mikuni Tuning Guide, links are below:

    SBN Owners Guide

    38-44 Rebuild parts

    46 Rebuild parts
    One thing I failed to mention which is overlooked by inexperienced tuners: The arm used in the pop off assembly can be bent slightly one way or the other to micro tune the pop off of your carb(s), tho I personally have never resorted to that detailed of tuning. But bent arms can also be a source of tuning problems. If you look at the arm can you tell its out of whack? Arm calibration can be easily checked. If you lay the arm on a flat surface in the position shown in the picture, the offset part of the arm should also be flat and parallel with the flat surface. If it is bent up or down carefully adjust until it looks like the picture, this is the factory position.
