  2. Keihin slide return spring

    Oh and one more thing as Adam Raga says the left hand needs to be accurate , the right hand you can get away with !!!
  3. Keihin slide return spring

    Why not pack it out at the top with some fibre washers, cheap and variable

    In short No No and No
  5. tightening swing arm main pivot/spindle

    Yep soz
  6. tightening swing arm main pivot/spindle

    Sorry oni nou but the pinch bolts should be the last thing to tighten otherwise you could side load the engine cases when tightening spindle.....expensive mistake !!!!!!
  7. tightening swing arm main pivot/spindle

    Maybe it is too long. If theres no movement when pulling on the s w arm then it may be tight enough.It does not affect the bearing loading really. Best to be tight though. Pull the arm to one side, does that help stop spindle turning
  8. tightening swing arm main pivot/spindle

    Can you push a bar or screwdriver into the blank end to slow or stop spinning. Eventually it should bite. Also you can load up the arm by placing bike on its wheels just to do this part of the job.
  9. Not shutting off properly....

    Talking about Keihin only here from experience. If the carb spring is biting into the top cap and you don't reassemble with the slide inline then some sideways force can be applied to the slide. It then tends to stick a bit to the body slowing the return to shut. Check cable also as if one strand is split it can catch and do similar things. Had two cables do this over 10 years of riding.
  10. Fuel Usage

    I get two sore knees and one sweaty helmet out of one tank of fuel usually

  12. constantly loosening rear brake pedal

    Apply loctite and tighten to still allow movement then leave it overnight. Sorted
  13. Vodka to de-funk a helmet?

    I use home brew sterilizer in a large bucket. Submerge for an hour then rinse in clean water (otherwise it'll burn your forehead) then dry in your proffered manner. I use a brewing heater tray. No need to dismantle the helmet inners.
  14. Drying your boots!

    Mine is the best idea. First become a homebrewer. You'll then need a warming tray for fermenting. It provides gentle heat over days. Drink beer whilst watching your boots dry out on the warming tray. Result.
  15. Coolant advice

    I have a coolant issue that's making my brain hurt. When riding the valve on top of radiator bubbles a little yet the fan comes on and off as I think it should so no problem there. When cool the rad needs about 50ml of water to bring it back over the fins !!. Have just run it with the cap off and it boils up quite quickly,and boils over. I can only think that coolant is not being circulated hence a boil at some point in the system not in the rad.On the 2015 gasser the water pump is a sealed unit I think so how would I check this. I'm thinking that i should take the pipes off and kick the bike over. Any other ideas chaps?
