Perfect James! Thats exactly what I've measured post swap.
Ok, let's say I "hypothetically" snapped off the inner crank case bolt while reinstalling the left side cases from a 'doo job. Let's also say it's the short one up by the starter gears. Assume also I was lucky enough to get the bolt out.
Anything wrong with going down to Joe Hardware Store and getting a matching bolt, or is there some specification I should know about?
Hypothetically, I mean.
No worries. It's not a high-torque application. Grab a stainless one in the appropriate size.
Thanks. I don't have much luck with educated guesses.
Grab a regular steel one in the appropriate 6mm x 1.0 size. Try to avoid stainless with aluminum, as it tends to promote corrosion and galling.
Pick up my new 2010 klr 650 next week.
Stock as a rock, 4000 k's .
Carby and exhaust I think.
Just pick up my new KLR 650, 2011. I am looking for a Corbin or Sargeant low seat anyone has one for sale or any input on which is better or where to find them at a good price.
I have a Corbin. It is firm but I like it like that. Try Flea Market or post up a WTB in Flea Market. http://advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=53
Having had both, Sargent is FAR superior to Corbin, and much lighter.....
I just picked this donor stuff up from a scattered 02 YZ125, which is the same as a bunch of Yamaha dirt bikes. I only paid $200 for all of it. Not ideal or state of the art, but it should work much better than stock.
I'll give you $225.00 right now!
Nice! Have you put it together yet? Does it bolt right on, or do you have to have have a fork conversion kit? I've been thinking about building a Yamasaki.
Here's a little inspiration...
I agree with Doohickey. My 08 had 3,200 miles - rode it for 2,000 mikes, then did the doo - I could notice less vibration, subtle but less, and the spring was loose and doing nothing. Glad I didn't adjust it because it was as I've read, no adjustment in the spring.
Nope. Just picked it up yesterday. I've been looking for a donor for a while. Not quite what I was looking for, but the price was right. I'll probably back burner the conversion until later in the spring because I have too many projects hanging right now. I have a build thread going, so I'll update that as I go along.
Hmmmmmmmmmm!--- had the Sargent -- yes very nice seat -- but design was such that it pushed me forward into the tank --- crotch family not happy -- went with Corbin -- harder seat for sure but now I can sit back further and keep the boys vastly more happy.
Add a sheepskin and the Corbin flat is very very hard to beat!!!
I'm upholstering my seat today with an army duffle bag. Should be an interesting result. I'll post some pics when I finish up.
+1. This is especially true if you're heavier. I'm 260#, and the Corbin flat seat is a really comfortable place to spend a whole lotta miles. The break-in takes some time, but it's worth it.
