Took out the rear wheel, took out the brake pads, cleaned and greased the caliper, mounted everything back up, came to the conclusion that brakes still drag and heaten up disc

I dropped something

into the intakes while taking the carbs and air box off. I loosened the clamps that hold the carbs to the intake too much and while removing the carbs I heard a small something drop into something. I inspected my hose clamps and noticed one was missing the cylindrical spacer and another was missing the small nut. I shoved a magnet down the intakes but nothing came back out. today while continuing the valve job, I was rotating the engine to TDC when I hit some hard resistance. thats where I stopped for today. I have a bore scope on order, in hopes I can find the items dropped, and retrieve them without removing the heads.

Done that before.....once you've identified where it s in the cylinder, you can usually fish it out with something. I dropped the alu cap off a spark plug it there once on a CRF450, not magnetic but with patience I eventually managed to hook it out

'04 950 - Removed my de-catted standard pipes and fitted black FMF's, fitted 990 plastic tank guards and retro fitted the triangular dust guard on the underside of the frame behind the headstock that wasn't on the 04's but was standard fitment on '05+ bikes.

Long story but I dropped a part that bounced down the intake on a trials bike. to get it out, I turned the bike upside down and it fell out.

I'm not manly enough to do that to my 950, at least not with out a winch!

Had my bike apart yesterday to burp and refill the coolant after I lost some on Thursday. Checked the clutch cover for coolant/oil residue. Clean as a whistle. Modified my old-style SW Motech crash bars a bit.

I also enlarged the lower aluminum tank mounting holes.

With the tanks off, it sure is easy to lay it on it's side for clutch cover checking!

There is so little oil in the clutch cover that you dont need to lay it on it's side, just on the side stand is good, no oil loss....

what did i do?

I had my first crash, well it was'nt that bad but i was glad i was wearing brown jocks.

In the wet on slippery black mud with scorps and i just looked at the front brakes and that was enough to go for a slide.

It dose'nt help chasing blokes on singles either .The big bashy i fitted acted as protection for the tank, bloody brilliant.

It sits almost in line with the side of the tank.

the night before.
