Re: Anybody running Dunlop tires?

Tires that are approaching 7-8 years old have ended their life as far as I am concerned. When I bought my Oilhead it had a set of Metzeler Z6 tires on them, very little wear, no checking, but they were pushing 7-8 years depending the the manufacturing codes and they were scary going into a corner. A...

Re: Woo Hoo! A Big Project!

Sure let Mel fix the pictures on his thread. We all like to see what's up via pictures in these restorations.

Re: Heard of this product?

I have a jar in my cabinet. Used as an assembly lube for brakes, used it when I reinserted the piston and seal on my M/c.

Re: Horn honky now

OK, I spent some time trying to figure out where in the system the horn was failing. It all came to the button not touching ground to complete the path. So this morning I went out looking at what point the switch accomplished this, it is done through the top mounting screw that holds the switch in t...

Re: Horn no honky, solution I hope!

ZM, yes horns work, hooked them up to voltage source, hit switch, loud noise startled me. I will do a few more tests today to see if I have a wiring problem, switch or if the starter relay has gone south on me. Since we are scheduled for heavy rain, good excuse to play with bike. I was looking at re...

Re: Horn no honky

Wobbly, I have run across that situation before. I did find 2 loose connections that the solder had broken free on on each of the wires going to the new style fuses from the terminal board. Resoldered them and still no honk. I was thinking of doing the green to positive on the battery next, that way...

Re: 1975 R90/6 front brake switch replacement

You could grab the body of the MC with a pair a slip joint or water pump pliers to keep it from rotating. You probably won't lose enough fluid to require bleeding the systems as the flow will be outward no air coming in.

Re: Hang titten?

The BMW doesn't have saggy tits, they are straight out. Have to admit the Guzzi is perky with the upward thrust.

Re: Tank Goop!

I looked in the parts fiche, there is a vibration damper, but it is on the top of the pump, the only thing on the bottom is a filter. That vibration damper is pretty pricey.
