Fresh wheel bearings for little girly . 40 hrs
4 oil changes 2 gear box fluid change greased linkage and new wheel bearings. Tomorrow fork spring and oil for this garage queen
I should be so nice to mine.
This would have been my big riding time .of the year Madison Heights would have been next weekend. Would have been getting ready this weekend. Best laid plans . I’ll probably go to Bunn in the next few weeks to fiddle with new suspension if its ok with Jim . Much safer than Ed’s . Trying to be respectful to people but I sure could use a day out. I love to fish but its not as good for blowing of steam.
Fork spring and fluid. Took it for a 200 yard ride in a gravel alley. Just need to check it over and put fork guards and plate on. Eds a engineer and said it didn’t really matter what way the spring went in. I put the tight coils down. He said put it on the net and listen to them argue
I am waiting for next weekend when you put the stock springs back in.
No. Im way to lazy. My thought is that with the new linkage the rear was raised putting more weight on the front. I think it will be balanced but quicker. Could be wrong. I’ll work on it again at covid 20 or 21
Did add less oil in the right than it called for. Put in the amount i took out. Really wasn’t very dirty.
May get out next weekend. Really stressed trying to take care of my mother at this time. Was in a infected building again Friday. Had to clean my moms apartment this morning. She has mental health issues. I Could really use a weekend out
ps, if it doesn't matter then why are virtually all factory installed progressive springs installed tight coils up? Ask him that. Not that I know better, I'd just like to know.
*pps, my late very close friend & riding buddy was an engineer, so I use "typical" in jest.
Curious, what we’re you hoping to achieve with less oil on the right?
Im not. I assumed there was some left in the fork although i followed directions on compression. I added what i took out. And the measurement to the top was correct . I figure easy to add after a ride as opposed to overfilling and blowing a seal
Think I get to ride this Saturday! Dial in the suspension. Then a three day camping weekend. Maybe bike and canoe
I'm going to ask this in here rather than start another thread about it, so I had a little tip over and a stick or something broke one of the blades off the fan on my 4RT. I realised this after I picked up the bike and wondered what is this little chunk of black plastic on the ground...Uh oh, I know what that is. So now the fan is a bit noisier and I have a feeling it moves less air through the rad as well. My quandary is if I should spend the 92$ on a new fan (yes just the plastic fan bit) or run it and not worry about the imbalance ruining the motor. Thoughts???
If it was me, I would get the fan... it’s that or replace both later down the line... and by later I mean much sooner than you think.
Can you reattach the broken off bit?
That's the way I'm leaning too.
I doubt it, the fan runs a fair rpm....and I can't remember what I did with the blade when I found it.
You can pay me now or pay me later. Replace it!
Yeah, I think I'd replace the fan before it eats the fan motor.
Well that sounds like a resounding consensus! Why does this never happen in an oil thread??
Thanks you guys, I’ll see about getting one ordered.
