Thanks Steven. I'll do that for the piston rings.

For the clutch, is #1 supposed to be flat? Because both of them look like bellvilles, #1 a little less though. So depending on the orientation of #1, it will change the stack thickness. I can see in the manual the orientation of #2. If all else fails, I'll put them back in how they were when I took them out, I think I reassembled it on the bench in the same order. It worked before.

Fixed my Leaking Safari Tank.

After the last ride I noticed some leakage coming out of the back corner of the tank.
This is what I found. Upon pushing on the corner I could see a slight wet spot when the tank was that full.


The plan is to plastic weld the corner. Tank emptied of fuel and left to air dry for a few days here in the desert.

I cleaned it off with carb spray and put a welding shield behind it.



I started using this little devil. I cut strips from a HDPE vinegar bottle to use for material.



It wasn't very long until I noticed the heat going away. Damn!

Had to finish the job with this.


Here's the finished product. You'll notice it is a little more blunt than the original corner. As I was heating it up it seems the corner was extremely thin and started to give way to become a hole. Yikes!
Pushing the tank material into the center and adding some it sealed up very good.



Here it is with the seat on.



The other side.



To test the integrity of the weld we filled the tank with water and used a blow nozzle to pressurize the tank some. No leak!

Ginger taking a leak.


I plan on leaving the bike with the tanks open & empty in the shed for a week. Should dry out any remaining water.

Nice repair. I take it the plastic weld is a bit like soldering?

Just rotate the throttle housing so it is upside down and you'll have plenty of length.

I got the 12 Enduro high and had no problems with the cables and that's with the Scotts damper setup which raises the bars.

Google "MSR Elephant Ear Handshields" or "MSR Hand D-Flectors" and also "Moose Racing Foam Hand Protectors". I think there's a few other brands of the "elephant ear" protectors out there. I've used the MSR's and they help for very cold, wet, muddy riding.

Cliff's right - they are from Moose racing. They just velcro on top of the real handgaurds and work great for protecting the hands from cold weather.

If your getting cold from windblast though here is the full meal deal; handled prolonged stretches of 90mph no problem!

Thanks - yes, I've sussed out the handguards - should work well - snowing here yesterday ...

That piece of plastic is an absolute travesty ...

Don't be surprised if a Rapid Response Team is dispatched from Mattighofen to take the bike back ...

Yeah I know... I've got groupies amongst the 690 riders here. It's a big step up from using that space to dry my underwear while I ride

Meh, real 690 riders go commando so no underwear drying is necessary
