Question Clutch seal

Hi! Does anyone know if it is possible to change the clutch seal (red) by undoing the blue-circled bolt and pulling out the axle, or if you have to do it the hard way? Thanks!

Fill oil up to 160mm
Whatever oil or level you use....make certain to pump the forks up and down a few times to expel all air bubbles. You'll see the level get much lower after the air is gone....then refill to final measurement.

Interesting. Why tighter part up top?
I mean - it is how I usually install them too, but did you find any tips on why we do it so?
We recently had big discussion on this on our site, hence the question...I had theory on that but it's kinda...shabby...

Probably so the tight coils don,t take up to much oil space.
Blue have you got the Tiger XC pic,s required and a full report nothing less .

Maybe the unsprung masses are lower?

Yep, those are the two reasons. For our riding #1 makes the most sense. If you're a racer (or a real techno-weenie) #2 has some validity.

I've also heard this: As the spring compresses, the more tightly woundd coils will coil-bind first.....this makes the coil-bound area go into a slight "S" shape and so the overall diameter of this area grows.....This growth is better handled by the fork if it happens in the top (tube area on "conventional" forks) than if it happens in the fork leg. If the spring contacts anything up top it will be only the steel tube rather than softer aluminium parts down below......Dunno if I believe this one or not.

In the end.......the spring doesn't care.

Hello guys,
a friend of mine, running a professional motorcycle-workshop, once told me, that the narrow part of the spring creates too much foam in the fork-oil if it's installed on the low-side. Sounds not too stupid to me ...
Kind regards, Bambi

Carb Problems...?

Hi guys,

So I think I may have Carburettor problems and need to take them off & clean them (if I can - never tried before)

I came out this morning to find petrol dripping from the bottom of the carb out of what looks like a small metal nipple next to the idle adjust screw (got a pic and will try to post it) and a mate suggested it may need cleaning out! Also, I read an earlier post saying the engine stalling on their bike under heavy braking could be because of the carb problems too, and mine also does this, so am thinking even more now I need to take a look -
Is it a tough and long job? I've done brakes, filters, lights, clutch & accelerator cables before so may have the required skill level??
Can anyone please give me some guidance?

Thanks,

P
