I would say your in the right here as long as it's an o-ring. In this case WD-40 is just cleaning/ keeping the rust to a minimum.

Fair enough. Actually, given I normally replace a chain because it's rusty before it's worn out, WD-40 may make as much as mine, which is 75% cheerful neglect, 20% semi-focused maintenance, and 5% self-flagellation over the cheerful neglect...

Sorry I didn't realise you wanted to use OEM heated grips. So no, those inserts will not work.

I am not going to pollute this thread with chain oiler topic but if you really want the best chain oiler get a pro-oiler. I have about 100k miles on mine (4 different bikes).

That's the one that requires a NASA engineer to program, right?

I am sure it might be more involved than the others but it's not really that complicated. Since you tend not to have to adjust the programmed settings (you can adjust the rate up or down simply on the fly for changing conditions if needed) at all once you get it set up it's sort of a one time hassle - until you change bikes.

I am not one to just promote something simply because its the one I bought trying to justify to myself why I bought something, I really think it's the best oiler available. If you contemplate getting one I'd be happy to have a discussion about it offline if no one else wants to hear about it and you can't find the info you are looking for elsewhere.

I'm at least curious in how involved the installation is and what the necessary steps are.

OK, I'll try to put together a pictorial of my installation and why I am such a fan of this particular device.

Not sure if you can see the happy trails tool mount that fits inside the rack... here it is. http://www.happy-trail.com/Happy-Tra...ity-Shelf.aspx. I attached straight to that. I didn't use the L bracket things just the steel that fits inside the square.
I just attached straight to that. 4 bolts with lock nuts, centered, and low enough that it wouldn't hit the frame when opened. I'll take some more pics this evening.

Thanks. That is helpful. Of course photos are nice too!

Odd malfunction

The fuel hose disconnect from the pump / bottom of the tank spontaneously disconnected today. Other than spraying gas all over a hot engine, and setting me up to do a Colin Edwards impression, no big deal, right?

It's been a year since I was under there- can't imagine it held on that long w/o being fully connected. After it cooled off (and I was sure it wasn't going to go WHOOOF while I was messing with it) I was able to get a hand in there and push it back on and make sure it clicked back into place, but has this happened to anyone else?

I'm planning on ordering a new one tomorrow and replacing it just to be safe.

Put Full Bore tires on the Roadie. Running 42/36 PSI F/R. Very heavy steering at slow pace and I have to push much more to turn at higher speeds. Never had anything like this even with 606 knobbies on KLR. WTF?!
