Your end goal sounds familiar. Minus the knackerd center stand. Body work has nearly 200,000 miles, the bike closer to 60,000. Hopefully I'll be able to change that, more this year than the last couple.

I plumbed it up like Snobum describes on his site. The tanks aren't on the bike currently, with out them installed the wife can reach the ground comfortably when she uses that bike..

I paid $50 for mine and they were color matched to the bike. Well the pinstripe is different, but I'm not complaining. The guy was only a couple blocks away from me and had a /7 he bought new, it looked like the Luftmiester catalog exploded on it. We were talking about all the accessories and he mentioned that it also had little gas tanks on the side. When he dug them out of the attic I smelled them, never had gas in them. I paid his asking price.

The first photo is a mirror image right?
And why didn't you put the banjo bolt into the plug so you can undo this mod?
No more spooge? you mean water right? In that case, 1 hose won't really "breath" you will still get moisture in and it can't get out of the hose.
As long as you don't do water crossings the stock breather is fine imo....

You are drilling a lot of holes in that poor bike. The ones in the side of the sump made the sump weaker than it was.
Those 6mm bolts are not going to hold any sort of impact.
I know what can happen to a sump guard like that. I have been using something like that for more than 15 years and 300.000km.

Don't throw out the epoxy on account of a rusty can.

Mix a small batch of epoxy first, if it goes cloudy when you mix it, empty the cans into two open topped buckets... don't mix it together. The hardener, or resin, or both have been contaminated by water. The resulting epoxy kicks off like bubble gum.

To bring it back to life:

Set up a heat lamp and let it cook until both parts are clear. May take an hour or two if you are working with a full gallon. The heat lamp drives the moisture out of the epoxy, by raising its temperature above ambient...

If the resin has crystals in it... or is thicker than honey, take the bucket and set it in a hot water bath (125-130 degrees) and stir it gently and it will loosen up and melt back together.

Epoxy on its own doesn't have a failure method from storage, it doesn't have volatiles to escape... so any thickening of the parts is crystallization, and rubbery finished products are from moisture contamination.

You've got a 30 year shelf life if stored properly, and if not stored properly normally it can be brought back to life by the above methods.

Cheers,

Zach... Boat builder.

Plaka, haven't you been reading the 'cam chain parts' thread?

I think you'll find the 'cam chain parts' thread interesting.
The discussion was polite, and shed a lot of light on the tensioner operation.
