Yep, time to close. Got the rings gapped. 6 hours to take off
Well, it wouldn't happen in my shop. I feel for you!
Mine either. Its 330am, just got the rear cyl on.
Had to chamfer the valve collets with a file, as they didnt fit.
Its always something.......
This ride report has everthing : a coast to coast trip , a race, and a bike build.
im amazed on how you can source the parts on a 84 year old bike.:eek1
Keep up the good work
Don't forget Icebox's offer in case it needs a bit of touching up in another few hours
Oh boy...an all nighter in the parking lot!?!
Here's hoping she's a reliable runner!
(you may want to take advantage of any sales there may be on redbull)
At least all that shit is still under warranty ..... call Indian roadside assist ....
Best O luck today and the rest of the ride Doug!
good luck - and I hope you got a little sleep in... :huh
Looks like Doug wasn't alone out in the parking lot last night...
....another facebook pilfer.....
At 430, as i was slding the front cylinder on, i found out that they didnt leave enough room for the cyl to clear the exhaust cam tower
So i got an hour of sleep. Guess i will find a grinder and waller it out tonite.
I hope these cyls work good, once i finally get the damn things on
Man, Doug , wish I could help. Hearing of your tribulations makes me the of what my old buddy Lanny always said when stuff went wrong.
"Fun, that's what we're having. "
Was MACGYVER's first name Doug?
looks like you can fix/build just about anything with some bailing wire and a leatherman.....great work!
That's not cool! :huh
Shop here in West won't close, it's mine, so if you need something, holler. It's mostly a fab shop, but two mills, a 14" lathe, die grinder with lot's of air, and other stuff. biggest problem would be specialized tools or tooling. Lights can stay on all night for any of these guys. I'll even buy the beer If somebody knows Doug and wants to PM me I will shoot you a cell phone number. Shop can get handy on a late night up here, will be below freezing almost every night now, 17 a couple of moenings ago.
Was wondering how those new cylinders would be like. Good to know what kind of work it takes to make them fit but sorry to hear you have to perform such feats wile on the road like that Doug. But knowing you Doug I'm sure your still having some sort of fun on this trip!
So it's just like the Dakar.
Doug's on the move. Does anyone know if he's under his own power or still on the trailer? Last I heard from Doug he still had issues with the rear jug.
It looks a lot of highways to me, long distances between the dots as well. I know I would have good use of some zzzs after an allnighter out in the cold.
