M8X1 Ace Hardware carries the best metric selection in the USA
Thanks! I think I'll go for it in that case. Safari (http://justgastanks.com/) confirms that the horn will mount, and for $839 you get the replacement side panels.
You also might want to use some copper crush washers with the bolts you use to seal it off.
Re: Metric hardware... Ace maybe not bad for a local source.. but for a truly massive selection you should check out these guys.. not the best web site but they sure do have selection covered.
Pro-Bolt usa also does a great job with moto specific hardware.
I see someone has posted the bolt spec already. I just wanted to say welcome back! Having gone through back surgery myself I know it's a tough road back. Glad to see you haven't given up on riding.
Last year I was looking into plugging the sight tube holes with bolts.
I did some searches for bolt sizes and finally found one post with the
bolt size. I wrote down the bolt size, problem is, I got to find we're I put
it. I will post when I find it.
Good idea. Thanks.
Thanks for the kind words. Glad to be back.
Thanks for info, but really Ace by far kills Lowes and Home Depot for flange and non-flange metric bolts and nuts. Hopefully you have one in your area. Same place i picked up a perfect fit o-ring in a pinch to fix my clutch slave cylinder until i bought an after marker unit.
For cold weather . . . You may want a bigger handlebar mount screen.
I use a Slipstreamer SpitFire screen:
And you should exercise your facial muscles so you don't cramp up from grinning ear to ear while you are riding!!!
Was wrenching a bit this weekend, and found a hose hanging down between the oil tank and the exhaust header. It looked like it had melted / baked pretty good there for a while. I pulled it out to take a picture:
Context (you see it down there):
I didn't have time (yet) to pull the tank and trace it. Any ideas what it is? Coolant overflow hose?
Someone have a renazzco seat. Do you Know why they are so confortable ?
Is it because they are filled with puppies and rainbows?
On the SMR that should be the coolant fluid overflow hose if memory serves.
They aren't...get a Seat Concepts seat..save yourself a few hundred dollars and short term paralysis
It's part of the EVAP Canister system. There is suppossed to be a metal cap on the line to seal it off. It runs up under the air box and meets other lines as part of the EVAP system unless you have removed that stuff.
Thanks for the info!!
Now... Canister has already been removed, so... .
(Also, gas venting next to a hot header? :eek1)
I confirmed in both the parts diag and service manual. Not close to my SMR to confirm in person but I'm sure now that on a 950SMR that is the coolant overflow tube. You are not missing a cap.
Evap is routed differently from the 950 Adv shown in the link Thumper provided.
Note the color of inside the tube, looks like burnt coolant. If you were dumping raw fuel onto your header you would notice right away.
