Not a problem.
No problem, and when you want to check the fluid level it is easy to loosen the clamp and rotate the lever (and master) up level.
I don't tighten my levers "tight" I leave them just snug enough that I can rotate them on the bar with two hands.
That's from the old days before we got metal hand guards that protect the levers as well as our hands.
If you watch this video, It will give you a basic idea of safety wireing. Note, if you dont have safety wire pliers, you can do this with a good pair of regular pliers.....its just harder to hold the pliers tight on the wire as you do the twists.
Many online tutorials on which way to route the wire so its allways pulling the fastener tight.
Stop deleting your posts! ...The more pointless ramblings the better. It makes this feel like home. A place where pointlessness and proactive combine to make pie. Its good pie...
QFT (quoted for truth )
Just make sure you mark them or solder those wires together. You don't want to end up plugging them in the right way accidentally while troubleshooting a different electrical problem and not be able to figure out why your bike won't start...
Yes, Dad. Sorry, Dad
Can I go play with the other kids, now?
Well there is that.
I used to have to do that. A pain in the ass since they specified 0.040” safety wire. It never was my thing, some guys were like artists. I don’t ever remember anyone using paper clips or any other kind of wire. Just sayin.
i just jb welded my NSU screws to the clutch plates... all is good...
(more pointless babbling to make Dad feel at home)
Harbor Freight sells the wire and the pliars..
For some reason now I really want to safety wire something.
I was never much for soap operas but I'll have to get back to this one and see how it turned out.
My Husky experience was with tapered shaft sprockets. Can't see what they improved with this version 45 years later.
Sometimes the DR tortoise beats the Husky hare.
The FAA's safety wire section in AC43.13 is one of the most widely cited references for proper application.
A zip tie/cable tie holding the pliers shut does the trick and makes life easier. If it's not enough tension, hose clamp...
I still have one of those sprocket pullers. Pulling those CS sprockets and “lapping in” the head brings back warm memories. Really!
A couple pages back I asked about luggage racks. After much going back and forth I ended up with a Precision Motorcycle racks “Enduro Rack” with the top expansion plate added. Install took all of 15 minutes and it feels like a solid piece.
Next will be budget suspension, or hanguards, or lighting, or the 6.6 tank.. you get the idea.
My 37 year old Milbar pliers are pretty well broken in.
You want to severely piss off an aircraft mechanic who is stupid enough to loan you his safety wire pliers? Bend the twist plunger so it'll never operate smoothly again.
On second thought, he may just kill you.
