Oil Line

Christian,

You could fit a section of fire hose for the oil feed line but the deciding factor is the size of the hole in the banjo bolt that attaches the line to the head. In this case big is not always better.

As to your header being close to the oil line I would loosen the header bolts and see if the header can be moved away some. Do you have the mid pipe bolt? The one above the foot peg. Is there a spacer in there? Remove the spacer of get a thinner one and that end of the header will be moved out some.

Item #14

Yes I know you have the later single header.

thanks for the tips steve I kind of did exactly that yesterday...I loosened the header bolts at the flange and using a mallet as a lever slightly pushed them up while tightening down the headers

unfortunately the reason I might have this issues is because I indeed did take of the midpipe bolt off the fmf header

remember I bottom out on occasion and the midpipe hits the swingarm! and it cracked my new fmf pipe(this was a while ago and I tig welded the pipe...so I opted like many in my situation to not use this bolt.

I have about a quarter inch clearance between header and pipe...so I dont know if rubber would fit over it.

do you think I have flattened iut the pipe too much?

I know that its the flow that counts, not pressure and that is basically decided by the size of the holes in the banjo bolts like you say.

Im just a little worried that I might have flattened it out too much

any thoughts?

Hard to visualize the swing arm hitting the pipe and I don't know what your referring to "flattening it out".

the fmf powercore 4 has the bad issue of getting hit by the swingarm linkage bolt at full compression of the suspension...

if the bolt that attaches to the pipe at the frame(#13 and #14 on your diagram) is installed the midpipe of the exhaust cant move...if it cant move it will crack from the bolt hitting it...I already repaired this once...

2. I was reffering to the external oil line or pipe that got flattened out a bit from rubbing and vibration made by the headers...it flattened out the pipe a bit where it hit. the pipe does not look crushed, but rubbed flat a bit if you will...on the outside edge.

there are no leaks

does this make sense?

Winter wrenching..........FINALLY

I finally got a chance to do some work on the ole' 88. Braced up the rear rack so I can carry a roto pac style fuel container on my treck to Dawson City this year.Galfer Braided front brake line, with new DOT 4 fluid (it probably had the original fluid in it). BTW bleeding was a PITA!! A brake switch banjo bolt for the master cylinder so I can tap the front brakes and make the brake light come on. It was a tight squeeze with the bark buster bracket. I just had the rear switch until now. I had NO SWITCHES when I got it!! Just need to install the new rear tire, change the plug, new chain and sprokets and she will be ready for another 7,000 + miles.


With roto pac and brackets




Rear subframe Manrack struts


Caliper and new braided line


Nice and tidy wiring


The top of the brake line wasn't bent out like the OEM line so a little grinding on the master cylinder was in order Also notice the TIGHT clearence on the switch wiring.


If a cluttered desk is a sign of an active mind, what is to be said about a cluttered work bench?

BTW under the white towel behind the side panels is my 92 Fatboy motor just waiting for a rebuild...............AHHH SOMEDAY!

How do you like that DG muffler? Are you running a quiet insert at all?

Had trouble posting... had to change the message board design...? weird. The post reply button was missing. Anyways... i've been looking for a small driver rear sprocket and the smallest I can find by the major brands are 45t. Any other bike I should be cross-referencing? I'm going with 15t/43t or 15/41. I forgot how it works- two both even numbers are bad? or one odd and one even is bad?

I think that 15/41 is standard gearing for the XL600..at least that is what is on mine..

There are quite a few rear sprockets on ebray at sub 40 teeth, but whether they will fit the later XR 6's, I don't know.

I like it! No insert as far as I know. It's got a very nice growl but not too loud IMHO.

I had the same problem, I suspect the new ´cookie´ settings for most websites.
I reconfigured my Adblocker to allow everything on this website and the problem is gone
