The plastic housing, unfortunately. A leaky hose would be an easy fix...

The plastic housing doesn't seem to sit completely flush with the reservoir it's attached to. Not sure if this is correct, but it's as far as it goes in, and it stays attached when I slide in the metal pin to lock it. Could somebody take a look/picture at theirs for comparison please?

I had a plastic leak on my radiator fromt he bike taking too many "naps". The only solution I could come up with was molding JB weld over the crack several times and forming it to the shape I needed. Took about three days of "molding" and curing but it has never leaked again, even with the bike taking several dirt naps to test my mold job.

Not the same area as yours but just an out of the box way of fixing a total PITA leak/crack.

Anyone else ever try to remove their seat and find it stuck? Seems like the latching mechanism is broken.

Any idea how to get there with the seat stuck on?

Bad one. Have you tried undoing the latch while pressing down on the rear of the saddle? It may just be a bit stuck.

You can always take the inner rear fender off and get to parts of the mechanism that way.

I tried pushing the saddle while turning the key. As well as wiggling, hitting, prying with a screwdriver and angry shouts. Nothing worked.

Will try removing the inner rear fender tomorrow. It was too dark here already to try earlier.

Removed my fender area and cut it out so I would never have the issue again. key does not work, but you just give the old bike a nice reach around and it'll unlock every time.....

No surprise to find a fair amount of dirt now shows up under the seat.

Hyperpro plus TT Subframe

Does anyone have a Hyperpro shock with oil reservoir mounted to a Touratech subframe? The local shop is having difficulty with the install, specifically with the oil reservoir not mounting onto the subframe. There's also an issue with the angle of the hose. Frustrating.

Trying to decide if its worth it to put the progressive springs in the front shocks..
Any pro or con opinions would be welcome, and who makes them? HyperPro? I think TT sells the HyperPro also. Any others?
Anyone have a set they want to git rid if, if you gave up and replaced the front forks?
Thanks

Rear disk rotor

Hi guys does anybody know which other bikes have same rear disk rotors?

I found very scarce info and replacements on the net. Lots of front ones but no rears.

Found:
Dealer can get original with 3 months delay I assume they need to extract the metal out of the mine first.

Thanks

I have looked before and nobody makes a G650X rear rotor replacement. The catalogs may say that it exists, but I have shipped them all back because they do not fit.

Idle problem

Hello amigos. Happy to have my old XC challenge back. Sold it a couple of years ago and I got it back this week. However it has an idle problem when its cold. I know somewhere here we have something related to this and before I start taking it apart I need some help with this problem. I just do not remember where I saw this issue. Thanks in advance for your help.

Some people have had issues when their idle air controller (IAC) gets gunked up. It's on the right side behind the side panel. It's held on with two Phillips screws. Obviously there are a number of cold idle issues, but that was a popular fix. Resetting the throttle position was another fix.
