First big backfire while starting the '04 & MSNusers popup problem.

37 posts in this topic

I was out riding tonight and had the first 'big' back fire while starting. It backfired and I heard a loud clank. I assume the clank was the 'torque limiter' slipping, which it is supposed to do. It started right up after that so it looks like the new starting system works for that occasional backfire.

I'll be honest, I don't want it to do that to often as the clank didn't sound good and I'm not sure how many of those it can take. What happened was, I'd been riding for a while then I stopped the bike and then started it, rode 50 yards stopped it and started it again. This is when it backfired in a big way. Don't ask me why. :)

Just ride and enjoy the darn thing.... You will worry the fun right out of it.I've tried to break mine and it seems to hold up great so far... And by the way, it also runs like a rapped ape too... Dirtstiff. :)

Hey dirtstiff.

Whenever I go to a thread where you've posted I get a connect to msnusers sign in pop up. It's a pain in the butt to close the popup all the time.

MSN communities gives us a popup everytime we read a thread where you post. You may not know it's even there as it doesn't show up for the user.

If you use MSN to host your pics i.e. your avatar or any other pic in a thread, it will prompt other users to sign in. It's really irritating. The only way to stop it is to use someplace else to host your pics. :)

Dirtdobber had the same issue yesterday and when he hosted his pics someplace else it went away. I think the mods should put up a warning about this.

Are the guys that are not getting the popup signed into a instant message service? I wish I can find a way to get rid of it without signing into the damn thing. Like I said when DirtDobber change his pics it went away for me.

I don't sign in either, cause I'm not a member. Every time I go to a thread, where a person has MSN communities hosting his pics, I get the popup. The way I find out who is causing the popup is by clicking on the usernames on the left side of the screen until I get the popup on their signature page. Is there a way of puttin somebody on ignore? I't may stop the popups.

I don't know what MSN feature is causing it, but I know it's irritating. :) There has to be a setting that you have and we don't. Are you sure you are completely signed out of msn. They may leave a cookie or something or other.

Yep, I'm all signed out right now. No popups on my work or home computer. I never clear the cookies on my work PC. I guess you could use a popup blocker. :)

A easy workaround is to simply add a line to the etc\hosts file that points www.msnusers.com to localhost. This will disable the login prompt, but it will also disable any name resolution for the site...but I've never been there and don't plan to visit. :)

Add this line to the etc\hosts file on it's own line

127.0.0.1 www.msnusers.com
