C-14, aka Concours-14 GTR 1400 / Re: Strange startup sound

Likely the cam chain rattle. Normal as long as it goes away within a couple of seconds.

For the first time in 9 years my bike is without a warranty.

I purchased my C-14 in May of 2009 with the standard factory warranty of 3 years and I ended up purchasing two GTPP extended 3 year warranties. I'm glad to say that I never needed the extended warranties as I've never had any issues with my bike.  :thumbs:

The Bike - C10 / Re: drip from #4 carb

  Carb cleaner can ruin slide diaphrams.  Carb cleaners are for auto carbs!! Also getting all those tiny passages clean as a result of ethanol gas residue is a bitch. I sent my carbs to Sisf  to be cleaned and set up right and my carbs are better than factory!!

Yeah, I was in the same boat: the person who hit me had some other ins. coverage. After three attempts to work with them (missed appointments, missed telephone calls), I called MY ins. co., which was Progressive, and they could not have been more accommodating. They came to me, looked over the bike, wrote an estimate on the spot and after I agreed to that estimate, cut me two checks from the printer in the car. Slick. Then they back- charged the other ins. co. but honestly, I really do not care about that; my end was painless, professional and smooth.

Cool. Good info. It's kind of convoluted. The other driver's insurance is Farm Bureau. My attorney filed my medical claim through my Jeep's insurance (Progressive) because it was better coverage than what was on the bike (Markel). But eventually, Farm Bureau will be the one who foots the bill. Farm Bureau won't be here to look at my scoot till Tuesday, the 29th. Not really a hurry on that.

C-14, aka Concours-14 GTR 1400 / Strange startup sound
« Last post by John Michiels on Yesterday at 07:18:51 pm »
Hello All,
I just bought a 2009 Connie and it sounds strange for the 1st two seconds after I release the starter switch.
It has a funny vibration sound that seems to be a fairing panel resonating. Is that common to any other bikes here?
Is it possibly a starter solenoid or starter problem that may be eminent?

The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: I guess I need to have this fixed
« Last post by jwh20 on Yesterday at 07:10:58 pm »
Got the SealMate on Friday and today I had time to work on it. So far so good. The hose clips were a pain and I got the two rear ones off without breaking or cutting them, but the forward one (right side) there is no way to get in there even with the long needle-nose plyers I have, so I cut it.

I will report back after a few rides (didn't feel like riding it other than around the block today).

I also mounted the light mounting brackets from n3nman on the other forum mounted. Need to get some good hook-up wire and shorter bolts before I can mount the lights onto them, but they went on easy.

You might need 2 or 3 "treatments" with the SealMates in some cases.  So don't give up after one try if the leak continues.
