You could also take the injector apart top metal bracket slides off remove all rubbers and put brakeflued in it that will clean out any dirt also

I let it soak overnight. No joy this morning. Tried actuating it with a low amp 12 volt power source but it won't open.

OK Maksor. Here it is soaking in petrol in one of my favorite shot glasses. How long and then what do I do?
I don't know how long, but I do know what is next - a shot of your favorite "lubrication" for yourself! Don't let your injector drink alone...

I have it soaking in Seafoam now top and bottom. That tube on the intake is full of it. I guess I will keep reassembling while I wait.

I've sent MC injectors to Injector RX in Houston, Tx. for cleaning, flow testing and chart showing difference for like $20 with fast turnaround. 1-800- 381-2065.

If I did a pull back shot of it you would probably take that back. Very messy right now. About to take Shanghai Dan's suggestion for taking a lubricant.

Getting down to crunch time, Sticky. Hope this gets it all straightened out...

The more I've thought about it, the more I'm leaning towards bringing both my MP3 and my Ninja to the Gathering, so if you're needing to borrow a bike, you should have some choices. I'll be loading up the trailer a week from tomorrow, so let me know before then if I for sure need to bring both.

no need as Tn sooner has a couple spare rides and I could always give up my MP and ride the Guzzi.

I remember you guys offering. That's why I said he'd have options, as long as enough advance notice is given to get the bikes there...

been following for a few days and I've got to say that I've never seen a forum come together for the greater good of one member like you folks. You guys should be proud of yourselves. And really nice job Sticky. You can smile every time you start that bike!

Thanks everyone. I really don't think I could have done this without all of the help I got from MV peeps. One more piece of tupperware to put back on and then a coolant bleed and I should be back in the saddle again. Baaaaaack!
