    Um, went to NAPA, O'Reilly's, Spokane Power Sports, and Home Depot. No one had the crush washers in the size I need. Looks like it's a trip to House of Hose and/or The BWM dealer....

    I also need to pull the whole right hand brake handle assembly apart. In Clymers it shows a piston system in there. I THINK that may be the cause of leakage at that point. I'm guessing the gaskets may be worn out. Will have to get them over the internet. At the "T" it looked like the threaded section of the brake line wasn't going into the T totally. A couple millimeters of thread are still exposed. This keeps the crush washer from sealing properly. I am hoping to find some thicker crush washers with the same interior diameter to fill that space.

    Question: Can I use 2-4 thinner washers to do the same thing if I don't find any thicker ones?

    You will only need to get gaskets for the piston in the master cylinder if you are getting leakage from where the lever acts against the piston or your brake lever slowly goes towards the handle bars when holding the brake. Anyway for those washers I would check with Inland Pacific Hose and Fitting, they tend to be cheaper than House of Hose when it comes to parts like that.

    Dillon, Your description of the handle slowly pulling into the grip is exactly what is happening. I'll be trying to find the part numbers for a rebuild kit this weekend and order it on Monday. I really appreciate your comments and the call. Nice to hear all is well.

    Yeah it was good catching up, though it does kinda suck to hear about the little issues that keep popping up on your bike. Oh well, thats just part of vintage bike (or any equipment really) ownership...

    Just a short ride to a good breakfast, backroading to Dufort road and to Hayden and then home, nothing like a big fairing and heated gloves to keep you warm. Do they make heated socks?

    I spoke with Tim from Cabella's recently. He says they are going to be carrying a Gerbings made but Cabella packaged product line here soon. They already sell them over the internet and haven't received any shipments at Post Falls yet. I THINK they are battery operated. They're getting rave reviews..

    Just a head's up.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Did you stay in the neighborhood or did you head over to see you parents?

    The regifting party will be in Jan. I haven't decided which weekend yet but we need to do it before AirheadBruce heads off into the wild blue yonder and Live2Ride heads to Baja, although last year he didn't show up.

    You guys that are waiting on parts this is the time of year to do it. :nod

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I have a lot to be thankful for and all of you are on the list of things I'm thankful for. :D

    I think this is the bike I saw at Dave Russell's recently. One of the best colors.

    What, before or after your friend got to you? I don't think he cares about whether you got hurt...I think he was more concerned about the bike. :hide

    Sounds like you had some fun today... Alas, no riding for me... Bike did though, loaned it to my buddy since his is down for new fork seals...
