I believe antigravity is the rage nowadaze.
Yeah, I was pissed too when I did it. That thing bent like it was made out of putty. I used VERY little pressure.
It used to wiggle out without much trouble at all. I suspect mine has a groove worn in the spacer that is catching on the dust seal.
I'm betting if we check a service manual, we are supposed to lube it everytime we disassemble the rear wheel...
I think you've got an electrical problem. Either a short somewhere or bad connection. Have you checked out the plug lead, mine was acting up like yours a while back so I took the plug connector off, cut 10mm off the coil lead and put it back together, ran fine after that...might be worth a crack
don't know what everyone else is using but I repaced my battery with a motobat http://motobatt.com/ works well and well priced.
Thanks for all the help. I'm setting the bike up for rally use and need to open up the cock-pit a bit after I fitted a Scotts damper. That required fitting the bar in the rear position to centre it over the steering stem. Now the bars are too close to me when standing. Also had 3 knee operations, so a slightly lower peg set-up will be better than an adjustable riser solution.
Finally got my hands on a decent solution for extra petrol
Yeah, you ought to lube it and get the grime out...
I'm at a lost as to how I'd be able to apply equal pulling force on all sides of the spacer, without mutilating the rubbing bearing or nilos ring (only $7,btw).
I used a small blunt punch from the backside of the spacer and just lightly tapped it at an angle (in the groove between the spacer and the bearing), alternating sides. The spacer slowly walked out without gouging/scratching/prying/damaging anything.
What he said....
Keep in mind.. IIRC, the rubber dust seal underneath has a space between it and the bearings. If you are going to clean behind the spacer, you will probably have to remove/ replace the dust seal to do so..
Thanks for that - will add it to check out.
I installed some new LED signals front and rear. When I finally plugged in my new Sicass relay http://sicassracing.com/store/products/turn_signals/wiring/sicass_smart_flasher_led_turn_signal_flasher it flashed quickly for a few seconds then stopped working.
Do I have a bad relay, or might it be something else?
Mine fell out when I was changing the tire... but then again so did all of rubber bits in my cush drive...
Interesting. Will standby for further development.
I've been running a similar setup (purchased from bobzilla) for several thousand miles now and aside from the hassle of removing my tankbag to get under the seat (now just running e-12 saddlebags), it has been just what the Dr ordered! Holds almost exactly 1.25g. I don't see myself getting Rally Raid or Safari tanks until my buddies all have more range than me.
does work well
I think Bob used his for smuggling moonshine....his 690 never went far enough to run out of gas
Once upon a time and after some semi-successful wrenching, with some expert help....
Bob was happy to hit the dez for some more....
Only to be towed 50 miles in silt and sand....
It is enough to make a guy want to resort to demon liquor....
Would a bearing puller and slide hammer not do the trick?
what I used when I changed my bearings.
