Help with removing/mounting header pipes

Hi all,
Spent the day mounting the Africa Queen lift kit (didn't lift as much as I thougt and it come without needed orings..) and installing the Motobau lower footpegs as well as removing the center stand. I removed the header pipes because that was neccisary for removing the center stand, it was a real hassel te get of. I usted a swivel joint wrench to remove the nuts that are connecting the header pipes to the engine, after losening the nuts I had a real hard time getting the connecting plate off from the rear cylinder. I now have two problems.

1. I can not get the rear plate (the plate that is supposed to connect the header pipes to the cylinder that should go on the two bolts) it doesn't seem to fit. Please let me know if you have any ideas that might help.

2. I'm not able to attached the fron and rear nuts because the lack of space and I assume Im not using the proper tool. Can you pls let me know what tools are to be used for removal and mounting these nuts and what procedure to use.

I appologise for my lousy english as it is not my native language.

Help would be highly appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

Best regards

Markus

Having long boney fingers is an advantage installing those header nuts....sausage fingers and you will struggle.

I'm not sure why the plate is not sliding up to the studs and fitting for you. Ensure the pipe is fully in the head and rotate the plate and pipe if needed.

For the nuts you mentioned you already have a universal swivel joint that you can attach the socket too...correct? Is it 1/4" drive like the following?

Put that swivel and socket on maybe a 6" extension and try to thread the nut on by hand with the nut in the socket. You can apply some tape around the universal joint if yours 'flops' around too much.

Otherwise, find someone with long boney fingers to start the nuts and finish with the universal socket. It can be a fiddley job if you don't have the experience. You english is very good.

And the plate don;t match up if the pipe is not alligned properly. with older bikes, the plate can misform/bend over time with the heat and constant tension on it, resulting in it only fitting one way around.

In short: If it came off there, it'll go back on there. But not necesarily easily.

swiss africa twins

Hello fellow xrv fans.
I'm an an American living in Switzerland. I have been here for a year and will be here for one more year. So far I have bought 2 Africa twins since I have been here. One Rd03 and one Rd04. Both were about 1600 USD. both were in great shape. My Rd03 is a square headlight version. Anyway, I am selling my Rd04. It just passed the Swiss vehicle inspection so its in pretty good shape. Not perfect but not bad. I will most likely list it locally soon but I would like to offer it here first. Any takers? Will post pics soon. 1900usd. 65km or so. 1991 wht/gen/red rd04 version.

dorfdude screwed with this post 04-21-2013 at 07:56 AM Reason: ps- you will have to take care of shipping...

Thanks a lot GSPD750 and Squilly! I went to the hardware store and picked up the part on the picture you recommended and followed the instructions using the tape to stiffen it, worked out fine so big thanks.

I have another question you maybe can answer, on the rear shock I see that it is possible to compress the shock which would result in a higher rear end, however can you adjust the shock when in place or do you have to remove it, adjust and then mount it?

Thanks in advance,

Br Markus
