fwiw, My SE can also be finicky about finding neutral when it's good and hot with the engine running.

I've never worried about it.

RadGuard - I need a radiator guard and am curious to know whether anybody has experience with this piece of kit and the folks who make them.

cut intake for foam dome filter?

and another question- those that have added a CPR or other similar filter (sportingwoods), how much did you trim the air intakes to fit? If anyone has a photo or can just describe how much they trimmed I'd appreciate it.

wasn't sure if I should take off the belled/flared area, or if it's the height that needs to be reduced, or if you are really just using the intake to hold the plate in place and you really cut it down.

I cut off the belled/flared are so about 1/2inch to an inch, there was a flat bit on the side from memory and I cut straight over from the top of that.

hth if not can see if I can get a photo for you over the weekend.

I just happen to have a brand new in sealed package clutch pipe that I don't need. If you're interested, PM me and I can save you some money.

When you remove "that bolt", you have access for the tool/bolt can find the notches in the crank. This confirms TDC w/ correct camshaft orientation and ensures no movement during a valve check and camshaft removal, etc.

See HERE



If it's leaking or seaping, retorque... 10NM. If it doesnt seal, replace the copper washer, or anneal (soften) it.

Case question

So first off, I have noticed with every recent oil change (now 15K on the bike) that the bolts one removes to drain the oil, and clean the filters, have all shown some significant wear. Effectively, they all go from a linear, parallel profile, to more of a coke-bottle profile where the middle of the bolt is narrower than the tip and the part closest to the head. This applies to to the M6 and M8 bolts, not the actual drain plug.

Seeing this, and after snapping off one of these bolts while removing it for an oil change last year, I opted to replace the bolts with stainless steel - I don't recommend this as I think the stainless steel bolts in the softer metal case causes problems...which is what I will get to now.

2 oil changes later, while replacing the lowest bolt that holds the oil filter cap, the bolt snapped off at the head, in the case. While using a bolt extractor to get the bolt out, the part of the case where the bolt resides cracked. This part of the case is contiguous with the entire left-sided engine case.

Now my question...Is the case Magnesium or Aluminum? The bike is 2500 miles from home, and I want to get it welded and re-tapped.

Learn from my mistakes? It is probably worth replacing all those bolts (6 in all - 4 on the left and 2 on the right) whenever doing an oil change, or at least at regular intervals.

We haven't had any issues with these, are you over tightening them or torquing them up.?

Sorry can't answer about the casings.

So I should be able to pull that bolt out,clean it, install new washer and reinstall to 10NM?

Yep

If you have an se, the oil tank has no check valve. So lay the bike on its left side to remove and replace... Minimal to no oil loss if done briskly. The adventures have a check valve won't have much in the sump.

Hi OC,

Does anyone have detailed pictures showing bracket ideas to support the digital speedo display once the stock headlight is removed? I'm looking at installing the Baja Designs LaPaz Dual 8 inch headlights on my SE once I get out to California (the bike's in storage in Cali right now and I'm on the east coast). I want to know if this is something I could fab up in a hotel parking lot, or something I can build before I go and bolt on. From what I gather (and remember I don't have the bike in front of me), the speedo unit is held by the stock plastic headlight housing.

Thanks.
-JW
