Once life slows down a bit (July) you'll have to join us for a day, save you a bunch of time figuring out which parts of that hydroline are big bike friendly as some aren't and some are
The shiny bike tried to take a nap in at least one mud hole, the yellow one managed to keep its feet all day which is not how things usually go. Any weekend you're up for a run let me know. I think we're going to head out that way or possibly around Calabogie next weekend.

There is two types of mud/water holes

1. back wheel only gets dirty. "think parting of the sea!"
2. both wheels get clean! cus its so dam long or deep!

FYI

Just reading about a guy in California.


Pot Illegal, Even for Trades

A California man was arrested
in March after trying to buy
a used Motorcycle with
about $8000.00 worth of
marijuana. According to
an officer on the scene,
the man said, " I know you
can't sell it, but I thought it was
okay to trade it"

Looking for a drift: time to change the steering head bearings on both of our GS BMWs and the lower ball on the stem is easy to get out if you have a 1/8" drift, as you can punch it off using the two holes in the steering yoke, but those holes are about 1.25 deep and none of the drifts I've found so far is that long.

Anyone have any idea where I can find that kind of tool, or some hardened rod I can use that way?

This is the kind of thing I need, but longer than normal:



This is what the outer bearing race looked like. (Bike handled terribly, of course)

Good suggestion. I considered that originally but all the bits I had would have ended up too short but I could buy a couple of longer bits just for that purpose.

Thanks!

I used a drift like you show in your pic. Once the bearing started moving it was easy to keep it going. I just used a nail and could tap it off with out much force the last little bit.

That's where I'd start.

Thanks Derek.yes, everything was good last fall. I did drained the carb bowl, but I didn't run the motor after that. I suppose just draining the bawl may not be enough. Maybe I should have ran the engine until it would stop, that way all the gas left in the carb would have been consumed. Do you know, once the bowl is drained, is there still gas inside the carb?
I'll start with the pilot for now.
Ovi.

Thanks for this, Brian. I saw on F800Riders that you had changed yours so I wondered what tool you had used. I found some drill bits today which look like they'll get the race started (Cue audio - Gentlemen, start your engines!) and once it's moving, use the nail trick like you described.

There's always fuel left even if you run it dry, fuel stabilizer is the best bet. if the bike was running fine when you put it away then its a safe bet its the old gas that plugged it up.

If that all it is, fresh gas and some seafoam might do the trick

Recap lol I meant that stabilizer is better than draining in the fall. Not the cure for the problem :)
