Re: r90 oil filter

While you are in there, might as well inspect the check valve. I use a chop stick to press the ball in, to check that it is seated. :) My spring has broken again, I think due to the damage that was done the first time the spring broke. My bypass cavity is too damaged to just replace the spring so i...

Re: Evasive /7 Generator Light Problem

All the connections and wires look good there. Is there some way I could chase it down with a test light? Not sure where to start with a test light in the pod. More an eyeballing exercise I think, looking at the circuit board for anything astray. Moving the wiring harness at the back of the pod whe...

Re: Evasive /7 Generator Light Problem

What does a multimeter on the battery say about the light variations?
Could it be a short to the charge light somewhere in the instrument pod?

Re: center bolt for valve covers

I thought all heads had the centre stud hole drilled though?
I'm running with just a centre nut plus silicone on one head to overcome head warp and oil leak. Leak stopped.

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

Skinny tyres rule, and the skinnier the tyre, the more the sports bikes squirm when they get a view of it. This..... is a very important consideration! Embarrassing modern sport bikes is a noble pursuit. :P Other than exchanging the top hat spacer, are there any other adjustments required? No other...

Re: Tire to swing arm clearance

It's not too big of a step on the fd spline, but the wheel spline will run up on that step with the smaller spacer. Is it a problem? It will be the only contact of the splines unless the wheel spline cup can twist to accommodate the step? I'd imagine the step will wear down and the wheel cup will re...
