which bike is the quickest Dublin?
yep. you've got to get that sump plug out of there one way or another. Or get yourself an ebay pan with plug and swap 'em over next oil change. It's no good the way it is.nukem1r said:lots of PB blaster to get it to loosen up and a very big pipe for a lever?
we all gotta start somewhere. You've done alright. There's no horrible creases anywhere, it looks nice and tight. Don't be too hard on yourself.CBdublin said:i know its not professional but it looks pretty good for my first try. got tired of riding on pieces of tile insulation.
Thanks man. Im just stoked it will be worlds more comfortable now and yeah I got lucky finding a NOS tank online. Just going crazy waiting for DurgamK to catch up on orders and send me my REARSETS! Nothing seems worth doing on the bike compared to those.bikeboy said:we all gotta start somewhere. You've done alright. There's no horrible creases anywhere, it looks nice and tight.

Love that tank too
Like I said before, I'd bail out and just get a replacement set up on ebay. You never know what sort of butchery awaits if you eventually get it of anyway. For all you know it's been JB welded in place because some gorilla ripped the threads out. Not worth losing sleep over for the sake of about $20??CBdublin said:And I still havent solved the oil issue. Ive come to the conclusion that nothing in my tool box is going to budge it. Hoping one of my friends will be able to try something new. Havent try an impact wrench
My money is on the oil-seal. #19 in this pic:CBdublin said:i replaced the two o-rings under the cover right next to it but my friend suggested putting an o-ring in front of the tach cable. seemed to work for a couple rides then came back. any suggestions on this problem. saw a guy making block offs for that slot. think that would work?
