I was in my garage this morning messing about, and kept looking at the MM. I really want to ride it NOW, but there's still too much salt on the roads here.

Carbon Cylinder head Covers

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for relatively cheap set on carbon cylinder head covers for my HP2 Enduro. The mounting points snapped off in a couple of places where a set of GSA aluminum covers were mounted. The carbon covers I've seen mount to the face of the head so I think they'll do the trick. Since this is an enduro, I'm good with a pair that are banged & scratched up. Anyone have a lead on a set?

Thanks!

Wayne

Stahlbus brake bleeders on the Megamoto

Not sure if anyone else has seen these or not, as Stahlbus is pretty new in the US. They have been in Europe for a while but until late last year did not have a US distributor. A fine German guy Thomas Modlmeier decided that he didn’t want to continue life as a Mercedes tech and was going to bring the Stahlbus products to the US market.
Basically they make 2 different products, a quick oil drain valve and brake bleeder valves. Applications to fit whatever your needs are, though their online catalog is in the process of being translated from German to English.
The Stahlbus drain valve is not ideal on a Megamoto as it would hang down beneath the engine in harms way, but works great on a HP2 Sport. No mess. I have installed this on my Tdi Jetta.
Their brake bleeder valves are great and easy to install. Essentially replaces the existing valve but is a little taller due to the design. There is a base that screws into the caliper and then the bleeder screw with check ball and o ring is installed into the base. So the way they work is as follows. Open the bleeder up 1 ˝ turns and you can use a vacuum pump to extract the old fluid in the usual way if you are changing the fluid. Open the valve ˝ turn and use the master cylinder to push the fluid out. The check ball closes and stops the air from coming in as does the o ring that seals the outside of the bleeder. Keeping an eye on the fluid level continue pumping until you are happy with the fluid coming out. There is a similar product on the market, a Speedbleeder but these do not have o ring seals and cannot be put into flush mode.
Maybe these are overkill, but brake fluid flushes are something that I tend to ignore as they can be messy and a pain. Brake fluid is easy to forget about as what happens if you don’t change it. Usually nothing unless you ride on the track and the fluid boils. If you havent changed your brake fluid yes, I can tell you that the fluid in the rear brake comes out BLACK! and I have changed it several times. Possilbly the rear brake hose is deteriorating.
They are available with different colored anodized caps and are simple to install. If anyone is interested in them I can get them for you at a discount or you can call Thomas and he will hook you up.
Here is the link to their website for all the info that you might want.

It actualy is somewhat twisty as it follows the contour of the lake, but yeah no curve in this shot. Will try to make a small movie out the raw material I captured.
