  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Yeah man, in sequence and building the torque up incrementally
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:17:17
  • Maritime:
  • the only issue I can see is if you need to build the torque up. When I do the Yamaha heads I need to start at like 20 and then 30 and then the final 40 so there is like 6 nuts to do in sequence like that
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:16:02
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • By the way, what's an FoS?
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:15:30
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • No kidding - it was sweaty palm time while I was cranking on that thing and decided to back off until I'd consulted with you guys
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:14:57
  • paddyshepherd:
  • I would imagine you'd be fine - there will be a FoS on the torque settings anyway so I can't imagine there being an issue.

  • SONIC.:
  • It should still work, 50 ftlbs is way tighter than you think, I'm always thinking "this bitch is going to snap" all the way up to the click
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:12:48
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Think if I back it off 2 ft lbs from the 50 ft lb mark I should be ok?
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:12:03
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • ^^ I tried that yesterday Mike - set it a little below the 50 ft lb mark but when I didn't hear a click I got the fear and thought maybe torque wrenches don't like being backed off below their minimum setting
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:11:18
  • Maritime:
  • if you set it a little below the 50 ft lb line you should be safe
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:09:29
  • Maritime:
  • They are usually rated at +/- 4%, 2% etc. If it's 50 lbs +/- 4% it 48-52 ft lbs, not sure that will snap a bolt or not
  • Feb 19, 2018, 11:09:01
  • SONIC.:
  • As long as it's inaccurate on the low side :D
  • Feb 19, 2018, 10:56:10
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Top of the morning question time, torquing head bolts - Clymers says 48ft lbs but my Canadian Tire wrench starts at 50.  Think 50ft lbs will be ok, given that apparently these things can be a little inaccurate anyway?

  • Feb 19, 2018, 10:16:35
  • Hurco550:

  • Jewbacca:

  • Feb 17, 2018, 16:23:42
  • Hurco550:
  • as long as it doenst end up that warm on the day of the ride we sould be good then. Last trip like that i went on we set out in the morning and it was around 20f. on the way back the temp shot up to around 40f, and resulted in the old wheelhorse snowmobile i was on melting a hole through the piston. They dont like warm weather
  • Feb 16, 2018, 17:09:04
  • Maritime:
  • Ha yep, there should still be lots of snow as it's dipping to 2 deg overnight tonight and most of the day sat, not going up until sun afternoon
  • Feb 16, 2018, 17:01:34
  • Hurco550:
  • i know 15km doesnt sound like much, but its a good long shot on the old iron haha
  • Feb 16, 2018, 14:45:54
  • Hurco550:
  • hmmm didnt know it was going to be that warm actually lol were supposed to go on a 15km trail ride on the vintage sleds. dont think thatll happen if its 50 degrees
  • Feb 16, 2018, 14:45:28
  • Maritime:
  • Actually Sat may be cold but Sun should be pretty warm, it's going to be in the 50's here from Sun - Fri
  • Feb 16, 2018, 14:04:13
  • Maritime:
  • That part won't be as cold as here, its will be like southern ME.
  • Feb 16, 2018, 14:03:10
  • Hurco550:
  • yep, always wanted to visit canadia mid feburary lol ;)
  • Feb 16, 2018, 13:58:17
  • Maritime:
  • Cool. That sounds like fun
  • Feb 16, 2018, 13:51:15
  • Hurco550:
  • cool cool. we are headed up for a vintage snowmoble get together up there. Dad and i are in a Boa Ski (thats a brand name) snowmible club, and this is the 50 year anniversary of the first production year. They were made in la guadoulope

  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:57:14
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • You gonna be in Montreal too Hurco?
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:56:35
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Route 132 is a great road too, it follows the St Laurence river through some lovely countryside.  x2 on the old Quebec City recommendation - there's a bar there in a 400yr old cellar with an arched ceiling, like having a beer in an ancient metro tunnel.  Very cool and great beer
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:52:19
  • Maritime:
  • there's a bakery in Qeubec City that is so good we ate there 4 times in 3 days
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:47:26
  • Maritime:
  • Really good food and beer there too
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:46:55
  • Maritime:
  • you're going to be close to Quebec City, old Quebec is pretty cool to see and walk around, but pricey to shop
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:45:49
  • Hurco550:
  • i gotcha. ill be up there this coming weekend. didnt know how far yall were out of there
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:43:19
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Me I'm about a 3 hour drive - I bought my a '77 kz1000 just round the corner from there
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:39:20
  • Maritime:
  • 5h 8m through maine, 5h 44m through Canuckistan
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:37:44
  • Maritime:
  • maybe less if I went through Maine to get there
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:37:05
  • Maritime:
  • I'd be about 4.5-5 hours
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:36:51
  • Maritime:

  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:34:35

  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:23:40
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • ^^ good plan
  • Feb 16, 2018, 12:16:02
  • Maritime:
  • The CX was built for her dad and when she tried to ride it she found it way to top heavy for her. So I am going to sell it and build something else in the mid displacement but lighter varaiety
  • Feb 16, 2018, 11:20:02
  • Maritime:
  • Ha yes, I love those little GPZ's Dock had one for a short while and it was a great little bike. I would sort it out and get it ready for Jill to learn to ride and I could ride it in the mean time
  • Feb 16, 2018, 11:18:45
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • Your better half should hang out with mine.  They could compare notes on how they plan to clatter their husbands when they shell out more hard earned on motorcycles
  • Feb 16, 2018, 11:11:04
  • The Jimbonaut:
  • How's it going - hope all well out east.  Love that GPZ, but then I'm a sucker for 80's fairings and can't get enough of that green
  • Feb 16, 2018, 11:08:57
  • Maritime:
  • Ha, If I had my CX500 sold I'd be heading there sunday for sure. Jill would kill me if I bought that now.
