Wyvern, that looks like my bike that I modded a couple of years ago!! Cool!!


FYI- I sold my bike, but the buyer didn't want the seat, so it's available in the Flea Market Parts area. Corbin road seat, very comfortable.

I had to replace mine a while back. If I remember correctly they are the same ones that the other 900cc twin valve Ducati motors use. It's a pretty easy but time consuming job. You have to drain the oil, pull the wires from the wiring harness, remove the side case, install the pickups, set the timing, feed the wires back through the harness, bolt the side case back on and fill with oil. The tricky part is in getting the side case sealed. I used a gasket compound rather than a factor gasket. You might want to replace the seal that goes around the shifter shaft as well. You can source that from any bearing shop.

Plastic particles in oil drain plug

Hi,

I have been happy owner of 900ie Lucky Explorer (-91) since last autumn. Now I am getting little worried. When changing oil(twice) I have found small black plastic particles from oil drain plug:

(Here should be pictures, but I didn't manage to attach them. Maybe later).

So, do you have any ideas what they could be? And how worried I should be ;)

Thanks

BR Marko

Bluhduh Swingarm bushings!!

Hi all fellow Elefanters
I recently bought me a 92 900 Ie Elefant, and Im in the middle of checkin the state of the bike.
Swingarm bearings and bushings are done, needles and cages fell out of the bearings totally rusted, and the bushings are shot.
New bearings + seals are no problem, I have bought them allready, but I havent been able to find new bushings.

Do any of You guys know where to get those?

Kindly

Swingarm bushings

Well to answer my own question:
Since I couldnt find anywhere to buy new bushings I found a guy with a machineshop.
He made me some new ones, from high quality steel, and hardened them.

If any of you guys out there need new bushings I will be able to provide them.

Send me a pm if interested

Kindly

Answer to myself ;)

Plastic pieces are from main bearings. Used to hold balls in bearing.

I finally got the Duc tuned, carbs were a mess, Richmond Super bike got me strait. I've had the bike for awile but it suffered with carb problems so I never really got to feel it's true potential. Well let's just say there are a few HD's with big inch motors still scratching there heads this bike rocks.

Hi folks ...
Thoughts and or input.
I want to remove the rear turn signals. have any of you used the LED tail / turn unit ? it lists Monster but the 2 mount studs must be the same or easily adapted.
( found this on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sspagename=STR

I will then do some flush mount on the front to match

update ... I got one of the Monster sequential blinker tail lights off of ebay. Removed the rear blinkers and have a VERY cool Hi Tech tail light .
The colors on the wiring instructions are off and one of the connectors needs to be resized. It really cleans up the rear end .
Have LED for a Honda CBR that I will be replacing the front turns with ,,, shortly.

My blinker project is finished ...

Now on to foot pegs ..
Anyone know of a direct fit for wide pegs or will I need the weld on / make my own ?

With very little modification you can use the wide aftermarket footpegs of the Yamaha TW200. With 10-20 $ it has the biggest bang for the buck and I use them since 2 years without any issues.



You just need to grind a bit off the sharp edge in the mounting area.

Look for "Black Steel Foot Pegs For Yamaha PW 50 80 TW 200" on the bay

I don't have an Elefant, but I ran across this and thought you guys might get a laugh out of it. http://news.motorbiker.org/blogs.nsf...0942MWEHFM.htm
