  • Kamn:
  • could also be that someone at one time installed incorrect size pulley (cross section of v can be different) and its putting improper tension on belt
  • Today at 11:34:21
  • SONIC.:
  • On the plus side, I can now change any of the belts in under 5 minutes. Feels like Nascar
  • Today at 11:32:18
  • SONIC.:
  • I think I've got a spare as well
  • Today at 11:31:55
  • SONIC.:
  • I'll give it a go
  • Today at 11:31:46
  • Kamn:
  • stethoscope or long screw driver with hard plastic handle and listen to alternator bearings while running
  • Today at 11:28:44
  • SONIC.:
  • it's broken under heavy load (low batteries early morning) and under no load (fully charged on the interstate with the generator charging the batteries)
  • Today at 11:27:17
  • SONIC.:
  • Or it will break first thing in the morning after startup
  • Today at 11:25:57
  • SONIC.:
  • That's my most likely thought, but it would have to be so random. I feel like a failing bearing would be at least somewhat repeatable. I've gone 12 hours on the interstate with no issue, only to have it break at random an hour later.
  • Today at 11:25:47
  • Kamn:
  • ^^ That too
  • Today at 11:24:54
  • Cookie:
  • What about potential alternator bearing seizure? It could still be/sound ok when cold, but then bind up as it gets hot. That would burn up your belt in a quick fashion.
  • Today at 11:19:44
  • SONIC.:
  • Kamn, No idler and the alignment seems fine, I havent put a good straight edge on it though
  • Today at 11:15:45
  • Kamn:
  • is there an idler pulley for the alternator belt
  • Today at 11:09:52
  • Kamn:
  • Sonic, pulley alignment??
  • Today at 11:07:39
  • Kamn:
  • Morning
  • Today at 11:06:42
  • SONIC.:
  • can't figure out the alternator belts. They will work fine for a full day and then all the sudden start squeeling and then 30 seconds later bam broken belt
  • Today at 10:50:54
  • SONIC.:
  • had to rerout fuel, lines on the first day to avoid vapor lock, but other than those 2 things it was great
  • Today at 10:49:57
  • SONIC.:
  • Yeah, other than breaking alternator belts
  • Today at 10:49:35
  • JustinLonghorn:
  • GM perform admirably?
  • Today at 10:42:44
  • SONIC.:
  • wasn't so bad getting there, but 3 straight 12hr days on the way home was rough!
  • Today at 10:39:29
  • SONIC.:
  • Good man, loooooong way home though
  • Today at 10:39:11
  • JustinLonghorn:

  • Maritime:
  • I'd like to have the time to ride my own bike out and back and spend 2 weeks exploring and staying in different parts of the mountains. The 4 lane 65 MPH highways through the moutains was intersting LOL they drive like maniacs, I thought I was going to get killed a few times. Once you get off those to the secondary and side roads it is really nice
  • Jul 26, 2017, 14:50:25
  • advCo:
  • Nice Mike. I would like to ride out there one year when I have a different selection of bikes
  • Jul 26, 2017, 14:07:23
  • Maritime:
  • after this trip a ride to and from Barber is probably doable as well. So as long as I have the time and can scrounge the gas $$ I think my leg and foot should be ok for the distance
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:29:15
  • Maritime:
  • It's amazing, the BMW was sooo comfy 2-up with the wife and the scenery is epic, the roads are epic and very well paved vs here in canuckistan
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:28:13

  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:22:41
  • haircuttergirl:

  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:21:07
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Great to hear you're back in the saddle mate, hope the foot is all well and healed
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:18:21
  • Maritime:
  • Yep it was, getting there and back blew chunks though, Weather and United = shitty
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:15:52
  • advCo:
  • Man I am jealous. Colorado is awesome
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:09:49
  • Maritime:
  • although altitude is a bit ruff when you are used to living at about 300 feet above sea level
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:09:26
  • Maritime:
  • Rode with the same folks I did the Cabot trail with last year. Those mountain roads are epic. Started each day at 9,600 feet and went up
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:08:48
  • Maritime:
  • Colorado for 3 days of riding, had a BMW R1200GS like Tim Burke's for the riding, both Jill and I loved it, except the ride by wire throttle that was not very good
  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:07:20
  • haircuttergirl:

  • Jul 26, 2017, 13:06:14
