Looks like about ~30 mins on a good day... not too bad. I don't feel the clutch slipping at all, it's just a bit sloppy to (dis)engage.

I'm working this weekend.

Avoid Charlottesville if you can, it's "Move-In Weekend" at UVA. Do not, repeat DO NOT, go shopping in Charlottesville this weekend.

Hey Guys, who has a metric tap set? (M6-1.0)

I need to open up a messed up nut on the frame of the Versys...

I have extractors that work if you drill into it for like messed up philips heads but for a tight bolt it might be time to go to sears and get the special kit for the rounded off bolts.

Just return it when you're done if you don't want to keep it. It's just like borrowing tools.

The bolt is out but the nut (welded to frame) is cross threaded.

It only holds the cowl on so if I can get some thread grip I think it will be okay, but I don't have a tap...

Is it into aluminum? I've used the bolt to "retap" the nut by screwing it in until it gets tight, then back it out and spray with wd40 and screw it in again. Just screw it in deeper and deeper until you have an orgasim or it's fixed which ever.

Aluminum? Pig iron is more like it. This is a Kawasaki, man...

I tried that until I stripped the allen head out of the damned bolt...

One of those episodes

hppyfngy>If you have a spare bolt & nut the same diameter & thread pitch you could fabricate a make shift tap AKA "thread chaser". Better than a tap in most cases for repairing buggered threads.>>step 1>Thread nut on bolt(to clean up bolt threads) 2>carefully grind or file one side of bolt threads flat just past the thread depth. 3> remove nut from bolt working back & forth to clean up bolt threads of any burs. 4>oil up & chase threads to be repaired.(carefully working thread chaser bolt back & forth)>>This works better on coarse threads but will also work on fine threads if careful.......... Flash >>>P.S. > Might be able to find one I've made for a pic if you need it. I know the few I have made are standard/fractional threads or I'd be looking for size you need.

If that doesn't work I've got metric taps you could borrow.

So I've been lurking around for a while but I thought I'd finally come out and see where y'all are riding around here. I just moved back to cville to finish up school, thought I'd get back into the whole bike thing, and so now I'm looking for some good sunday rides.

I just picked up a drz sm, so while I'm not strictly limited to pavement, I'm not terribly confident in the dirt having come from street bikes. That and I went down to the south pedlar atv trails and learned the hard way that pilot powers don't shed mud terribly well. That said, I'm definitely open to trying out the dirt\gravel if y'all have some must-do dirt rides.

I started exploring a little today and did 53 to carter's mtn rd down to Scottsville this morning. Then after lunch I headed back up and then over to crozet and up 810 to 33; so I've got those knocked off the list. What's next?
