I just put oil on anything that moves. Had no problems.
Had trouble setting the air mixture using a color tune today. Could not see a change in color or even color. Ended up being the window of the...
When the carb cleaner shoots you in the eye you know the passage is clear.
When removing the fork caps, loosen the top pinch bolt on the triple tree. This can pinch the tube enough to keep the cap from moving .
I struggle to push a bike backwards off a trailer let alone ride it off. I guess the next time I will try riding the bike off the trailer it...
I love my center stand on the bike. It is great to park the bike among others with it straight up. It stands out like [Family Friendly Forum]. It...
Only the British would get it.
Is it a metric or standard adjustable wrench?
We have great moderators here.
He has been missed. I can't wait to hear his knowledge again.
We all do silly things when we are young.
Yes, don't let the excitement of finding a bike blur your vision on what the end result could be. If it does not feel right it is best to walk away.
Thanks for what you do.
I agree you need a new chain and sprockets.
Right side covers the battery. A lot of time the cover is removed to service the battery. Cover set on the shelf and never seen again.
This something to investigate. It is part of the safety system. It keeps you from driving away with the side stand down.
It looks like the side stand switch has been removed and that is part of the wire loom to the switch.
You could use a known good battery. A car battery for example. Jump start your bike from the car. Do not have the car running when jump starting....
Check the kill switch is in the on position.
Remove the clamps holding the handle bars and move the handle bars ahead. Loosen the bolt on the top triple clamp.
This is what my brother does to seat the tire to the rim. He removes the valve core then uses an air gun with a rubber tip pressed to the stem....
Is it blue, green or gray. Inquiring minds need to know.
It is hard to give up parts like that. I am such a parts horder. I don't think I could do that. Thanks to @hogfiddles for running the shim pool....
No no the worst thing is when the wife comes in to the garage to tidy up your work area. There after I can't find a dam thing.
I'm thinking low oil level switch but wire color will help.
This is why I am a repair technician not an author.
That tank would make some nice wall art.
Did you replace the dough nut seals on the valve bolts? The seals keep pressure on the valve cover and the gasket. Do over tighten the bolts.
Remember this when wielding "Grinder and paint makes me the wielder I an't".
Is it a hold down for the gas tank or seat?
How about spark?
You can try warming the end of the hose with a hair dryer or use hot water to make it softer. Using open flame is a no no. The tee in carb dose...
Do not over torque your new bolt or you will be in the same boat again. Torque value is on the filter cover above the bolt.
No it will not fit. Partzila is a great resource for part crossover. If you click the part it will list all other bikes that part will fit.
From dirt bike experience, it is no fun to ride till you get your boot lace caught in the chain.
What fun is that? Fire=fun.
It may be just water. Water is a biproduct of combustion. Take a tissue and soak up the mystery fluid and try to light it with a match. You will...
I may have ignition switch with key but it is missing the pin for steering lock. I will check my horde in the morning. PM if you're interested....
What parts are you looking for? Have you tried NCK salvage in Woodstock ont.? Welcome to the forum.
Also check the swingarm bushings.
The best way to keep an air cooled engine cool is to keep moving. If the air temperature cooler than the engine the engine will disappate heat.
I like how you stuck with metric bolts. You have an eye for details .
Make sure you did not knock the kill switch to the off position. This can be easily done.
Heat from the engine can soften the fuel line and cause to kink .
2nd Seca is done just needs a battery. I don't know what to do with it. It is nice to have a second bike for parts.
That happens when you steal gas from the neighbors lawnmower.
I got the year wrong 2020 is cancelled. Can't wait for 2021 rally. Been isolated too long. Send help.
Well you extra time now. The 2019 Paris Rally just cancelled. So I can't wait till 2020 to see this bike.
