  • LazloH: I blew up the heated bed on my makerbot...   crazy enough though..  it was wayyyyy out of warranty...  and they still sent me replacement parts for free.  Guess it was a known issue.
    Dec 05, 2017, 15:01:04
  • LazloH: sad..  it reset too...  lifetime build hours now just says 1 hour...   it used to say something like 45 days.
    Dec 05, 2017, 15:01:49
  • Maritime: Ha thanks Guys, If they don't fix it for me I'll do it myself. That link is interesting.
    Dec 06, 2017, 09:57:57
  • Maritime: No matter what I'll do the mosfet mod to prevent future problems
    Dec 06, 2017, 10:03:19
  • Maritime: I actually haven't opened the thing to see what fried. I was waiting for the answer on warranty. I should just pull it apart and send them a list of parts to mail me

  • Hurco550: well i was gonna tough it out and ride into work today (29 deg) but the dr650 still has knobbies on it and broken turn signals (oops) and the airhead wouldnt start ha must not be meant to be
    Dec 06, 2017, 12:43:25
  • irk miller: Must not
    Dec 06, 2017, 12:45:34
  • Hurco550: i keep having to clean the points on the beemer everyime it sits at all
    Dec 06, 2017, 13:28:21
  • irk miller: You need a Dyna points booster
    Dec 06, 2017, 14:06:25
  • irk miller:
    Dec 06, 2017, 14:09:45
  • JustinLonghorn: Or switch to a Boyer ignition
    Dec 06, 2017, 14:33:36
  • irk miller: That Dyna makes your points last forever.  I wouldn't change the ignition.
    Dec 06, 2017, 14:50:08
  • irk miller: You can also use the Hondaman unit, which i have to send you.
    Dec 06, 2017, 14:52:23
  • Hurco550: yeah kiley mentioned one of those, im gonna have to give it a shot. The last three time i rode it, it will not start until i clean the points again.
    Dec 06, 2017, 15:14:43
  • Hurco550: no plan to go electronic
    Dec 06, 2017, 15:15:22
  • advCo: I should clean the points on the XL. Actually getting down to freezing tonight
    Dec 07, 2017, 12:53:23
  • The Jimbonaut: Warmed Rhonda up enough yesterday to get her started and took her out for an hours ride around i left this weird white stuff was flying around but thought it was some kind of corrosion being brushed off the garage roof
    Dec 07, 2017, 12:57:47
  • The Jimbonaut: It wasn't
    Dec 07, 2017, 12:57:54
  • The Jimbonaut: First ride in the snow - quite an experience.  Things I'd rather do before I do it again, but definitely an experience
    Dec 07, 2017, 12:58:35
  • The Jimbonaut: Weather holds up I might try and squeeze another ride in today, but here in MTL we're on borrowed time
    Dec 07, 2017, 12:59:15
  • Maritime: What about the stupid winter tire rule, Smart for cars but if you get caught on a bike without mountain snowflake tires you get fined. When does the rule kick in Dec 15th?
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:12:45
  • The Jimbonaut: Yup, December 15th.  It's dropping to well below in the next few days so the bike'll be firmly squared away and hibernating by then anyway.  Until then however, I'm having at it
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:15:16
  • The Jimbonaut: Started tearing into the KLR as well, this thing's gonna be a riot
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:17:16
  • Maritime: Nice, well mine are away for the winter but I have pulled them out a few times until they salted, now they stay in until spring.
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:28:24
  • The Jimbonaut: Working on anything over the winter Mike?
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:31:34
  • Maritime: The virago I thought I fixed. wrecked another head/cam. It has an oiling issue that is not all the time and I need to sort it before I give it back to the owner
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:44:23
  • Maritime: I have a new head/cam but have to drop the motor again to swap it, then I need to sort why it has oil pressure one minute only to lose it a few min later over heat and seize
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:45:24
  • The Jimbonaut: Damn, good luck with that
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:52:25
  • Maritime: Thanks. I got a few ideas of what to look at but if they all check out I'll be stumped
    Dec 07, 2017, 13:53:52
  • irk miller: Sounds like an O ring issue.  Is there an O ring on the pump, or somewhere in the circuit?
    Dec 07, 2017, 14:03:19
  • Maritime: Probably. There is also weird things in the banjos that can cause it. I have a trouble shooting arctile saved for when I get the head swapped and can test the oil feeds etc.
    Dec 07, 2017, 14:08:20
  • Maritime: I dumped the oil as the first thing that can cause the issue is an oil filter in wrong, but that was o=k.
    Dec 07, 2017, 14:09:02
  • Hurco550: well, they sprayed brine on the road and the snow is flying... may have ACTUALLY finished up my riding season
    Dec 07, 2017, 15:14:51
  • The Jimbonaut: Ha, I said that yesterday Hurco but might try to squeeze in one more ride today...
    Dec 07, 2017, 15:19:36
  • Hurco550: i may do the same. i mean i have knobbies right? lol
    Dec 07, 2017, 16:39:52
  • Hurco550: i had thought about takin an old worn set of tires and making studded ice tires to ride in on a wretched snowy day. Only 4.5 miles to work, but if its snowy in the morning it will likely be cleared by the time i get ready to go home
    Dec 07, 2017, 18:33:11

    Dec 08, 2017, 15:36:29
  • The Jimbonaut: Had a very peculiar dream last night.  Dreamt I'd made a triple tree for my bike out of poached eggs
    Dec 09, 2017, 13:56:30
  • The Jimbonaut: Woke up this morning and realized the handling would have been un-eggceptional
    Dec 09, 2017, 13:56:59
  • Hurco550: Happy Monday y'all
    Dec 11, 2017, 11:56:46
