    Greasing Likage - Trix?

    Did the greasing operation today. Skipped the grease fittings just to save some time today. Everything dismounted and cleaned: 1h. Remounting and greasing: 1h. Next time i will make a tutorial i think...

    Greasing Likage - Trix?

    Hehe! But how often do you regrease the bearings? And is it common to mount the zerk fittings? Linkage overhaul is a max 2 evening job on dirtbikes but here I am up for a new adventure!

    Greasing Likage - Trix?

    Riding in moist or wet seems standard in Sweden so the zerk fittings might be a solution. Some enduro guys put zerks right in the bushing (thath case between needle bearings) but yours came from the side? How did you manage to fix that? Sounds like greasing it up should be done verry often and it seems also as easy as changing a front light on a french car?!!! (Total teardown from trunk and forward?!!??!)
  4. Does anyone have a tip on how to grease the linkage? Cant find any info on the net!?? Is it a wheel, swing take it all off operation? Heard that it should be done quite often. The patient is a 2012 tr280i. /D

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    Nice to sort it out. I will have to change the oil amount in them as I did a 160mm air pocket in both. Did see that they wrote the amount in explorer manual. Öhlins yes, think so. With the side position gas chamber?

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    Cant say more than silver, clear painted. Quite rough molding and machines at the ends. Simple bolt with washer at bottom that has a closed thread hole on the inner mechanics of the suspension. Inner part of suspension has also a o-ring at bottom. The more I read about it, the more it seems that the forks are as you say from an explorer. Found a picture of the Explorer fork to and I think we got the answer to all this confusion!!!

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    Found many service guides for the cartridge type forks. But these seems to be fixed at botton. Impossible to open. Not like any of the pictures I hane seen. Then the next question, stick to 160mm air pocket?

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    Problem is in short: When I remount the cap with control rod at minus, I have no play to change 1-2 clicks to plus.

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    Sorry, its a 2013 Tr280i Clickers work fine! Most forks you loose the pressure on the clicker (is it called clicker??? Screw?) driving it to minus before opening the cap. So when i try mounting the cap again with the setting of the dead minus, there is no more than 1-2 clicks before i hit maximum plus. Is it so that when mounting caps with fixed controll rod it should be at maximum plus clicks?

    Fork Service, Clicks?

    From the backgound of enduro and loads of oilchanges I thougt that a simple fork oilservice would be a pice of cake, but no! Read some helpful information but not realy a complete explination. So, went for the classic counted the clicks to max, back to fully release pressure at minus and then loosen the cap. (Drained the oil from the lowest bolt first). Did all the refilling and air bleeding but when mounting the cap, with the unusal rod stuck to the cap this drives the rod to bottom?!! Leaving no chance of changing the clicks? Do I have to mount cap/rod at max + so that I later can loosen the compression nut to right set of clicks? And what is the standard set of clicks? The Ossa tr280i manual and service manual mostly refers to: put your feet here, hands here and just go ride...

    Ossa Tr280I Leaking Oil

    Warm, left and right, check! Thanks! Found that the oil came from the breather hose. It ends just above the chain and frame. What is the correct length? Just hangin at skidplate? And where to find this dimension of tube??? Windwiper tube?

    Ossa Tr280I Leaking Oil

    Ah! That might be it. I will check the nr.19 crank case breather hose. This is what I could understand the hose just infront of the sprocket.

    Ossa Tr280I Leaking Oil

    Exactly, I finaly tried to loosen it and found our that it was the motor mount. Felt realt stupid. Will try ti see were it comes from again. The last owner just changed oil on it and it seems that he pored the oil on it like it was a sallad... so it seems comming oil from the strangest place. I had to make investigation if the Ossa had oil in the frame like a Buell??! as there was oil in the frame joints.... Thanks for the help so far!
