  • advCo: Hopefully that takes care of it eh

  • advCo: I had to go unclog our condensate line for the AC at 11:30 last night, it got up to 81 in the house before I realized. Sucked about 5 gallons of water out of the drip pan and drain line but A/C is working again
    Jul 19, 2019, 12:31:56
  • Maritime: At least you found it. We've had to run AC more this month than last 5 years combined
    Jul 19, 2019, 12:34:55
  • Maritime: looks like I should bite the bullet and do a full on carb rebuild on the GL I've never done it, it's got almost 180K miles on it, this winter I will buy the Randakk's kit and do it
    Jul 19, 2019, 12:47:33
  • cbrianroll: I've used randalls kit...its good...the first time I cleaned my plenum I'm not sure what the po did but they were clogged... completely...
    Jul 19, 2019, 13:28:53
  • advCo: Pretty good deal if you've never done a full rebuild Mike
    Jul 19, 2019, 13:42:07
  • advCo: I need to run the gas out of the BMW and put some fresh stuff with stabilizer in there as I probably won't have time to ride it before the its way too hot to ride right now anyways
    Jul 19, 2019, 13:42:39
  • Maritime: Yep The first 5 years I had the bike we didn't have ethenol in our gas, then they added it to the regular so 4-5 years it's had it and also whenever I toured in the US it got it so it's finally eaten the orings away. The issue is all over the GL forums I found it in minutes and it's all folks in US with ethenol gas, Canadians are just starting to see this issue. The Randakk's kits are Viton and ethenol resistant so this will be the first and last time I'll need to do this
    Jul 19, 2019, 13:45:59
  • Maritime: I know what to ask for for my B-Day this year LOL
    Jul 19, 2019, 13:46:43
  • advCo: Good deal, one and then done. I've had the carbs in and out of the BMW probably 10 times and I've only owned it 1.5 years lol. I hope to leave them in for a while.
    Jul 19, 2019, 14:21:51
  • Maritime: Ha, this will be a big deal, it takes 8-10 hours to rebuild the carbs properly LOL
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:31:48
  • Maritime: that's after you get the bloody things out of the bike
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:32:13
  • cbrianroll: have you pulled the before? it sucks lol.
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:52:12
  • Maritime: I've had them out once when I had to remove the engine to fix a broken stator bolt. I am not looking forward to it LOL
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:54:13
  • Maritime: I think I may just do a full frame up resto-mod if I have to pull shit anyway
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:55:15
  • Maritime: TIming belts are do this winter as well. My electronic China tach is not working right anymore. I really hate the fenders on it and the seat is hedious but comfortable. I want to have a nicer sleaker seat to swap to for solo short rides
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:57:10
  • Maritime: I need to fix my sidestand tab, it's bent from the crash and the bike doesn't lean enough the tang is gone to put it down as well
    Jul 19, 2019, 15:58:28
  • cbrianroll: sounds like allt of work planned...I cut off my 78s rear...slimming and shortening it...I should start a build thread...
    Jul 19, 2019, 17:12:37
  • cbrianroll: oops...update my build thread..

  • advCo: mornin' fellas
    Today at 09:43:41
  • Maritime: Morning
    Today at 10:01:42
  • advCo: Wrenched my back pulling the old toilet out of the hallway bathroom yesterday, great
    Today at 10:09:30
  • Maritime: Poo, that sucks. I hate pulled back
    Today at 10:51:04
  • advCo: Yep. Shitty part is I have to get that bathroom tiled this weekend and then fly to NYC to install felt wall tile
    Today at 10:56:32
  • advCo: this week*
    Today at 10:56:43
  • Maritime: Chiropractor may be in order
    Today at 11:49:02
  • Maritime: or whisky, but you got to measure the whisky right or you end up passing out before the job is done
    Today at 11:49:34
  • bowman41: Mornin strangers!
    Today at 11:53:17
  • Jimbonaut: Morning all, anyone tried restoring cranckcase halves bolts?  ie sandblasting and zinc plating?
    Today at 12:57:21
  • Jimbonaut: Or know of a decent source to buy stainless replacements?
    Today at 12:57:41
  • Jimbonaut: Found someone local, I'm going to strip the plating off the old bolts and get them re-zincked
    Today at 13:19:03
  • advCo: Plating is a good option, I sandblast all hardware before sending it out
    Today at 13:21:41
  • advCo: I make a spreadsheet of all the hardware before I send it out, makes divvying it back up when you get it all jumbled together much easier
    Today at 13:23:19
  • advCo: Currently working on that with the bus
    Today at 13:23:26
  • advCo: BTW - they usually have a minimum charge so if youre gonna only do a handful may as well do the rest of the hardware for the bike. It goes by weight usually
    Today at 13:24:07
  • Jimbonaut: Spreadsheet - yup, that's a great idea.  I'll take some photos of the pizza box lids I have stacked up on a shelf with all the various bolts punched through too
    Today at 13:29:10
  • Jimbonaut: Come to think of it, maybe I should do all the axles and engine mount thru bolts too
    Today at 13:29:43
  • advCo: I did the whole shebang on my RV125 resto
    Today at 13:33:13
  • advCo: Doing the whole lot of Hardware for the bus. Its a lot of nuts and bolts lol.
    Today at 13:33:41
  • Jimbonaut: No shit it is
    Today at 13:34:34
  • Jimbonaut: But hhhhmmmmmm...shiny
    Today at 13:34:52
  • advCo: Yeah rusty hardware is a bummer
    Today at 13:42:35
  • Jimbonaut: I bought some new stainless bolts for the engine covers which look good, but feel like OEM is the way to go with the crankcase bolts.  Zinc up those buggers
    Today at 13:46:20
  • Jimbonaut: Bloody hell - just called local Honda dealer as I need a couple of o rings for the primary shaft oiler thingy - $7 per.  $7!  I'm in the wrong business.
    Today at 15:04:43
  • advCo: [link]
    Today at 16:25:54
  • advCo: I buy them there, or I also got an assorted o-ring pack on amazon for about $10.
    Today at 16:26:30
  • Jimbonaut: Great link, thanks mate.  Buna-N (nitrile) o-rings, that'll do it, right?
    Today at 16:32:10
  • Jimbonaut: Found them there, 0.40c each.  That's more like it
    Today at 16:32:30
  • advCo: Yep that should be it
    Today at 17:37:57
  • advCo: I bought 10 or 20 each of the o-rings for my F650 carbs for the price of 1 at the dealer
