Me and Alice. Totally understand each other.
I actually prefer Yamabond its a little cheaper and it stays good for a while. I'm sure you can use something off the shelf but I always just use this stuff. I've had my current tube for a couple years, it hardens up at the end but I just dig it out with a pick and roll on.Jimbonaut said:Good call mate - I do that with all the side covers, oil pan etc. Dominos boxes are perfect, so that's dinner taken care of too.
Hondabond huh. Best to go with OEM, right? Not an off the shelf product?
Nope, think of it like you're starting a bike in frigid temps. Your cylinders and valves will go from icy cold to hot in short order.Jimbonaut said:I’ll give AdvCo’s suggestion a try - if I apply heat onto the frozen bearing do I run the risk of damaging the bearing in any way? And am I right in guessing that the bearing itself is lubricated by the engine oil, not grease?

Good point. I don't have a torch per se but the missus has a mini blowtorch she bought for making the sugar go all crispy and fancy on her home made creme brûlées. Unless she makes the things when I'm not around (which would suck), she's never, ever made one and the lighter's sitting on the kitchen shelf unused. That'll do nicely.advCo said:Nope, think of it like you're starting a bike in frigid temps. Your cylinders and valves will go from icy cold to hot in short order.
Yes, all the bearings in the engine are lubed by oil.
