Do you think someone could sponsor me one of your bashplates
That would be nice. Slightly used would be fine...Thanks in advance...
Keep up the good work.
So, how we all going on tyres?Just fitted my 5th rear at 28,000 ks
Sticking with the Mitas EO7
Just asmall tech tip also.............. use the axle in from the wrong side initially to line up the hub splines in the diff, once its in, pull the axle and insert from correct side
Also, am I the first to run a dual battery setup?
Fitted the first set of K60's to the bike before the last trip.
It was interesting.
Tires covered in wax, raining as I set off, road only trip, putty road first...Like I said interesting..
After 500Km I think some of the nipples had actually worn off. :huh
Different world these tyres.
Now I suppose I need some protection to allow me to boost my real off road skills. I knew this would happen.
They did throw some good roost all over my mates RT at one stage though. They have their uses.
What's the torque for the rear axle nut? Murican, please?
Rear axle nut: 90 ft/lb
Rear axle pinch bolt: 18 ft/lb
What pressures are you running in the K60s Graham?
Enough. Does it matter
38F 40R last time I checked.
So you're leaving the 17" rear for now? I think I've seen that setup before.....
Let us know how you like it.
Well... I've got two bashpaltes "slightly" used...
The problem is the shipping cost to USA is expensive... :eek1
You are a bit exaggerated!!
There are quite a lot of bikes with this setup
Yeah, Im living the 17 rear wheel for the moment.
I dont know why in Spain (and I think in Europe) there arent Excel 21 rims with 32 holes.
After months searching Ive found a workshop in Barcelona specialized in supermotard kits and they found interesting my project. They find this rim in a Spanish manufacturer, made the modifications and now we are going to try it.
If is strong enough they want to sell it as a kit and then perhaps we are going to try with the rear wheel.
I think is going to be a beast!! :eek1
Doesn't bother me I'm in Australia
PM away. I'm all ears
Ok I send you a PM
fitted my 4th rear at 29000 miles/9months
kenda big block
It won my shootout the day I grabbed the front brake off road. (Having traded my GSA for it ;-))
Anyway, the answer to your question is "Tuesday at 4:30pm". ...Or was it Thursday ???
I'm a proud new owner of a ST. In the past I've had 1150RT and 1150GSA. Maintenance on the BMW's was pretty easy with the help of this forum and a good Clymer's manual. With respect to the ST, what manuel are you guys using (similar to Clymer's) so the DIY'er like myself can continue doing my own maintenance? Thanks.
I use Yamaha's own factory service manual - both the USA one in paper-printed & the Euro one in PDF on my laptop & cell phone. Personally I always prefer factory service manuals to Clymer, Haynes, etc. if they are readily available, even if they're more expensive.
After all, where do you think the folks at Clymer, etc. get the info to write their manuals?
I found the oil drains plugs for the diff and the engine all by myself. The oil filter is pretty obvious too.
That's about all you need to know isn't it?
Yes the European pdf is pretty good.
