Pop over to HACKS. I've got a thread going OLD ROAD TRIALS OUTFITS. Regards Beetle
The easy way is the motorcycle lift from Harbor Freight but that doesn't work beside a road.
Some 4,000km with sprocket in that condition. Remember I broke s chain out in the desert of Western Australia. At some 14,000 now I've fitted new front and rear sprockets and new chain. Put a 16 tooth on the front to see how that goes. Also changed oil again, no contamination to be seen. Go Winnie. Regards Beetle
I think if I need to make a roadside rear tire repair and I am alone, I will look for a tree, fence post, guard rail, utility pole, or something to lean the bike against. Of course, unless one is carrying spoons, patches and air, it wouldn't matter.
Holy shite! Well, it got you home and that's all that matters.
In the U.S. these guys are gonna have a big parts and accessories sale coming up on black Friday. Sign up for their newsletter if interested.
True, I bought one anyway.
I would love one of those but don't have room. I have the cheap one with the two beams that lifts the bike up a foot or so.
Can someone help me understand what's normal for front drum brakes? My friend just scored a 2002 Bullet 500 ES which I rode home for him and I was surprised it had such little effect. Was getting at least 70% of my stopping power from rear brake, maybe 20% front, and final 10% dragging my feet at the first stop sign.
Yeah that's probably not right....Look at brake shoes and cable adjustment.
How's yes shoes Fred Flinstone?
Steel plates ain't just for oval dirt trackers...
Something is not right. As noted above, check stuff out.
You generally can see where the shoes are hitting the drums but if not, just put a line on them with a marker and lightly squeeze the brakes as you spin the wheel. Could be that they are glazed and/or have oil or some contaminant on them.
Lubed cable and adjusted brakes, they were far out of adjustment. Lots more lever to grab now. Maybe will get the chance to ride around the neighborhood this week and check it out.
My Bullet 500. Packed and ready for departure last Friday morning. Destination the SR500 Rally in Bethanga, Victoria. Got back yesterday afternoon after a great weekend. A round trip of about 900K's. The Bullet cruised at 95-100kph and did not miss a beat.
That sounds more like it. My '07 Bullet has a TLS front drum brake, and it's a very effective stopper. Oil or grease could have leaked onto the brake shoes,too-I'd pull the front wheel to check it out.
Great bikes. I bought one last year and it’s one of my favorite bikes in the stable. Fun to ride, no maintenance issues. It can keep up with the bigger bikes up to about 80 mph.
Cool pic! What make is that tank bag? I am using a shitty old one I got from a friend but am in the market for a magnetic one. Thanks in advance.
So the SR club isn't exclusive to SR's? it's good to ave some playmates. Have fun.
