Re: generator light staying on conundrum

These things can be tricky to check for some of us. These rotors are a common failure on these charging systems. Centrifugal force could be lifting a broken winding that can re-connect at lower revs. I'm not saying that this is definitely what the problem is. But I have experienced a problem like th...

Check rotor for continuity, though it could be intermittent due to rotational forces.

Re: Master cylinder

I haven't taken off the MS cap. I have one caliper off and the other one still connected.

Master cylinder

84 R100 So while waiting for OEM caliper rebuild kits to replace the non fitting after market parts, I have a question. I though it would be a good idea to zip tie the brake lever to the grip to make bleeding easier to prevent fluid from escaping down the unattached brake lines. Now that I have to w...

A Suzuki DR400 looks interesting , light and powerful if horribly ugly and with too a high seat for me. It's possible to lower it but the uglies remain.
A dual sport has no need to have esthetic value. It's just a tool.

Re: Caliper rebuild snag

ZM, this doesn't help you in your situation, I know. But I do want to chime in on non-OEM rubber (and plastic). Simply, I've had too many disappointments from fork bellows that split quickly to parts that almost fit. I don't think I've ever encountered a rubber part that is better than OEM. I have ...

I rebuilt my 81 calipers recently with Motobins rebuild kit parts, no problems.
They say they have Brembo parts as well. Maybe they didn't when I ordered. Maybe you got those. I just ordered some OEM from the dealer. I keep learning the same lesson....OEM.
