I have my moments.

Had no other choice. The bearing was completely separated and the outer race was sitting flush with the lip you see in the bore. Absolutely nothing to gain purchase on. All of the claw extractors I have were too thick to even begin to get a hold of the thing. Ground down a piece of steel, kinda tapped it down into the bore of the race, and tacked it into place. That gave me a nice surface to drive it out from the other side. Popped right out.

Once Hack brought me the bearings and seals, simply heated the hub with a heat gun to open things up, then tapped them in place with some drivers I have.

Sometimes, a plan does come together.

Definitely retired judging from the color of his hair, but, I'd wager from GE.

You are probably correct Guy, from GE's Switch Gear Division, looks like some of their sloppy work

Neat concept tho', but at $350 for the lite ($390 for black), I'll pass. If I need that much stuff to keep from getting lost or figure out where I am, I'll stay home or drag out the AAA maps.

I don't think you were at work the day Roger Sinclair stopped by to see me, and he was riding his Iron Butt GS...
he told me he didn't have everything on it because he had to add 2 more additional terminal blocks,,,,,


When I was spending "all-nighters" helping him out (keeping him awake and alive) on the second leg of the BigButt ride (he was in 3rd place at the time), he was telling me he was running 4 different GPS's, 2 Spot trackers, 3 different cell phones thru his Scala, and 4 different MP3 players, along with CB and VHF radios...

Make the Iron Butt more basic. Strip out all the techno gadgets and make the riders rely on paper maps and navigational skills only. Allow cell phones and SPOTs for emergencies only. Damn thing is starting to become like Formula 1 where the deep wallets provide the advantage and the little guy doesn't stand a chance.

PS - and no oil-downs in 7-11 parking lots.

Hey Mike & bmw325e30

Question ... on my XRL, my old tank didn't have a hose from the cap (smog stuff, I presume). My new Clarke tank has a nipple that apparently allows for said hose. Do either of you guys have this hose, or the nipple on the cap? Any problem not having a hose attached?

That hose allows fumes/splattered gas/puke/vent for the tank. Usually it goes to an opening in the top of your triple tree.

Any small diameter hose will work that will fit on the nipple and into the hole. You can get small diam. vacuum hose at most auto parts places. I have that hose if you want to come by and see if it will work.

I have always wanted to learn the mysteries of the carb, if anyone would like to show me how to remove and clean a carb (1995 Honda XR100 specifically), I would pay for your time.

Thanks

Mike
Mike,
I've got to get a couple bikes ready for the Vintage Bike show next weekend. I'll be pulling carbs and cleaning them this week. Have shown several around here the tricks. It is not rocket science, but it will cost you .... I'm down in Petersburg so you'll have to be brave enough to come down into the 'hood too. PM me if you want to come down. I'll show you how to do it, but you'll have to do all the work yourself. Also, buy a 5 gal can of ethanol free gas from Jordan Point Yacht Club. Put fuel stabalizer in it. Then only run ethanol free gas in your dirt bikes, or anything you occassionally ride. It will help significantly.

Don't pay him no mind. All the “vintage” stuff he works on have jets so large that you can drive a truck through. You're stuff will require a little more finesse since they are considerably smaller.

Pays your money and takes your chances. Get accosted in the hood by some, uh, hoods, of visit a safer place in Chesterfield.

But seriously, he'll set you straight..... as will I.
