The cam was a $200 part. The tiny metal bits that fell down into the stator took out a $400 part. It figgin MIRV'd on me!

It stings more because I just bought the bike and had put less than 150 miles on it. Bought it used with under 2k miles on it.

But it's fixed up pretty good and I had a nice ride through the hills yesterday on it. But it did remind me how poorly it does over 45 or so. Body parts start to get numb from vibration. It's really meant to stick to the dirt. Guess I'll have to start finding more!

I swapped out the rear bearings with a tire iron and a borrowed claw hammer...I kept breaking rocks.

I've always used a long drift (punch) from the opposite side to pound them out. You have to pry on the spacer to get the drift to land on the bearing inner race. Once you have tapped on the race a few times, the spacer becomes easier to move to the side. Don't know if this is the BEST method, but it's worked for me for about 35 years. And pry the seals off the new bearings and PACK them with grease.

That'll work, you just have to be patient with it and not take too much of a whack on one side......a little at a time so you don't cock it.

True. When you headin' out to WY? I'll be out that way probably the 2nd week of Aug. Maybe gonna camp and explore in Big Horn National Park. Sounds like your crew is planning another epic adventure.

Road Trip 1624 miles

This is the Girl packed and ready for her 1624 mile road trip.
Eastern Florida upto Wright City Missouri. The objective was no interstate travel and no time frames.
Florida, Georgia, Tenn, Ky Il, Mo.
New concealed carry permit and several credit cards with me, I set out. Finished the trip there in 3 days.
The 610 is bearable for long distance riding. Dont believe anyone who says it isn't. I had already done a 700 mile trip in two days and a 360 in one day so I knew what I and the bike could do.
Oh and the only trouble on the trip, a pinhole leak in the hp fuel line one night. Easily repaired.
Cant wait to do the next trip. I'm thinking of Texas.

firefight,
How did you repair the leak and does anyone know what the discharge pressure of the pump is?

Fuel leak

I had already modded my pump to have brass fittings and FI line. So I was able to cut off about 1.5 inches to the leak and put the line back on the brass hose barb.
Pressure is about 40 psi at the pump and get's reduced at the throttle body by the pressure regulator. I am not sure what the Fuel Injector sees for pressure.

Like every thing else, there is a tool. It goes into the bearing from the out side then a flat tapered punch goes in from the other side and fits into a slot in the adapter and you pound it out.

I have found this to be a good tool to use. It is a round bar about 12" long with, as you can see, a slightly mushroomed head. The lip is just enough to get into the gap between the bearing and the spacer or bearing and hub. Then just tap the bearing out, moving the punch and tapping around the bearing, from the other side. I don't heat or freeze anymore. You don't need to if everything is clean going back together. A little antisieze in the bore will make reinstall EZ and removal next time EZ as well.

Sorry, Honda hub shown.


Use the old bearing to drive the new one all the way in.


Something flat like this to drive in the seals. Again tap around on all sides till the new seal is all the way in.

Renazco Seat to trade for a stock one

I'm looking to trade a Renazco seat(and some cash) for a stock seat.

It's Black leather top, and red carbon fibre sides. If I sell enough farkles, I'll get to keep the bike. Pivot pegs and Uptite skidplate to sell too :(

Pm if your butt needs relief from the stocker or you'd like to try some pivot pegs, ond/or a nice skidplate.

Finally dusted off the bike and put 250 miles on it this weekend. 150 or so doing the first part of the TWAT ride to Soldiers Grove, WI. Only pic I nabbed as it poured not long into this. Back MT21 is bald and I need to get the Motoz sitting in my basement mounted up before the next ride.

Moto Guzzi rally coming up in August as well as the TWAT from Soldiers Grove, WI north.
