Yes they will replace it... but this is getting tiresome.
Could be heat related Dave. It was a concern of our Ohlins agent when I tried the piggy back shocks for clearance.
Not to rub salt, but the Ohlins emulsion shocks have had 30000kms trouble free. But will be due for a service this summer. Good to know the Ikon boys are standing by their product.

Talking Seat Screws

So I noticed that one of my seat screws had backed out and gotten lost on some remote back road, leaving only one screw to hold the seat on.

I went to the hardware store with the remaining screw and found a similar pitch, but smaller head, screw to replace the one I lost temporarily. Damn...but it would have to work.

That is when I noticed they had conical washers with a rubber backing. So I bought two washers and two screws. The rubber on the washer has a smaller hole than the metal of the washer, keeping the screw from spinning inside the washer.

I first ran the screws through the washer first as the fit is tight enough that you cant push the screw through the rubber hole. Making sure the metal of the washer is against the head of the screw. The tightness is tedious but a good thing. I then replaced the screws and made sure to tighten them well, compressing the washer.

The rubber of the washer is facing the seat tab so it grips the immobile surface, the washer providing spring force against the rubber, preventing the screw from backing out.

Or buy a pair of these...

i'm very happy with it.not too loud,like a set i have on another bike.great fit and finish,and at my extreme altitude,i didn't need to do any jetting !!i have to believe that they are about 7 pounds lighter as well.for the $$$ i think they are well worth it.

Thanks! If you can get away with not jetting at your altitude, maybe I can get away without doing it too. We're even higher up than you though, at 152 feet elevation.

‘See if you can get a patch for the other eye as well.’ The publisher cryptically suggested as I walked out of his office, charged with yet another Kiwi Rider Magazine Triumph test to write up.

Your Youtube clip is excellent Dave. Great voice over. Great sense of the event. Cheers for posting this.

Took my babies out of the shed today, to sweep - they were all looking glamorous so I took some pix.

The BMW is a work in slow progress
