NOT the company selling it, but the actual 'brake radiator'. Dumped the bike lightly and the entire body of the radiator slightly bent, thread body bent, complete loss of fluid for rear brakes on a ride.

Man I am STUCK! Need some help. I have the below setup


and I need a banjo bolt to replace the looong threaded black piece (it goes all the way through the banjo fitting and down the middle of the orange reservoir and into the caliper.

Problem> This long black fitting is bent, the threads tweaked so it holds no pressure at the caliper junction. I'd want to get a banjo bolt that could replaceall of this, and a setup that has the bleed screw would be even better.

HELP! What banjo could I get on a Saturday - size?

Can't be positive because mines an '08 but it says M10x1 for Item 11...did you get the parts book with your bike, in the suitcase?
I looked up your bike on Munnracing.com and it did not give the size.........


***Edit*** I see my parts book is out dated and the one above has been superceeded

"54813020000 BLEEDER SCREW CPL. 05 superceeded by 62513020000" which is the same as your 2010...so M10x1

I suspect so....the trick with any 'ol banjo is you won't have the bleed screw...that being said,
bleeding the system is gonna be messy and you may still be left with a spongy rear brake....
the other thing to consider is the length of the banjo bolt.
The M10 size is easy enough and the 1.0 is the thread pitch...I don't know how much the bolt
can go into the caliper without interference and still make a tight seal with the washers and line....
I'd try Autozone or similar....this one has the right size & thread pitch...

Ah,you've discovered the "bling" factor,shiny pieces of anodized aluminum that usually detract from function but seem like a good idea at the time.
Weve mostly all fell prey to this but it sucks to have bling end a ride.

I would think the stock banjo bolt is what you need.

Can you mount that little radiator chingadera on the other side of the banjo? Wouldn't conduct heat away from the caliper quite as well, but wouldn't be as likely to fail if it were installed that way either.

Could anyone offer any advice on why my '08 530 excr is not wanting to idle? Idle will race then drop and stall, I'll adjust idle screw, blip throttle, idle will hang then drop off; and repeat. Below I've attached a link to a youtube video of how it is acting. I'm stumped..



Bought the bike about 3 months back and desmogged and put the JD kit (175 main, 42 pilot, red needle 4th clip) in it. JD Fuel screw (1 1/2 turns out). It ran great for a while then it sat for a few weeks while I was traveling for work. I installed the BD Squadron headlight, floated the ground on the stator and installed their regulator (all in a kit). I've changed the plug, new airfilter, removed the carb and put all parts in ultrasonic cleaner.



Any suggestions before I take it somewhere?

Installed the samco thermo bypass kit, installed the samco t hose to radiators. Refilled the system up and after a 5 min ride and then 5-6 min idle in garage the overflow was puking coolant. Im thinking there is prob air in system not sure, whats best way to burp it?

Vacuum leak? if you had the carb off, maybe the boot between the carb and head isn't seated, or loose. Look for air leaks. That's where I'd start.

Just thought I would ask the stupid question. Did you plug the vacuum line on the intake when you desmogged? I have seen a few bikes that desmogged and let that line line vent to atmosphere. Not a good thing.

Yep, plugged both fittings with bolts and ran a hose from the t where it was going in the carb down to a fitting I installed on the catchcan. Screw removed from the bottom of catchcan too.

The bike was running great. I had about 3/4 of a tank of gas. I was doing 40-55 miles per hour on a graded dirt road. I was pretty much bombing along.

All of a sudden the bike just died. Like I had activated the kill switch. No choking or gasping, it just quit running.

We messed with it for 15 minutes, verified we had gas flowing, verified I had oil, I took apart the kill switch, still no joy.

My buddy towed me 30 miles to the border. Along the way I was hitting the starter periodically with no start. We got to the border, while waiting in line for our turn the bike fired right up. I rode it 20 miles home and it ran as good as it ever did.

Ideas on what to check? It makes me nervous to take it back out without finding something wrong.

DD
just a thought here :
my pressure washer gas powered Honda motor was the same thing
it would run for a few minutes then die just like the kill switch was hit
--------------------
after pulling carb apart and fuel pump -- nothing
the strange part was you could give it one pull and it would start up
-------------------------------
changed spark plug and it has been perfect for 3 years now
the old plug looked clean - must have been grounding out when warm ?
-------------------------
a friend had similar thing with his generator
----------------------------------------------------------
wort a try - plug is cheap !!
