Fwiw, this is what I did and its great, excellent noise reduction, music sounds great even at low volume, which is good for audio books, i know its wired and not budget, but, for me, it's the cats ass.......

Sorry about the sale of the K75 Bud. But it does free up space in the garage for another (new) special friend.

Glad it's going to a good home and will be appreciated

I can tell you.

It gets soft.

I plugged the upper crossover holes in the ktm tanks. Hard as a rock after application but after 4k miles, it's goo.

[QUOTE=MZcountryboy;21048639]I looked at my motorbikes this morning, [sigh].

Oil change + a couple of tires for the 650, and it's time to get the "new" MZ on the road.......

Best riding routes

Hey all, I hope you don't mind me butting in but I will be up in your area for work in a few weeks and have talked my boss in to letting me bring my bike. I will be staying in NH and will be there for 2 months. Could you fine folks recommend some great (paved, I'm taking the GT) riding routes and if you happen to have and would not mind sharing your gpx files from your GPS I would really appreciate it. I definitely plan to stop in on Adam at RocketMoto, he has been a great help to me over the years but I have never met him. I hope to get as much riding in as my off time will allow. Please pm me or email me at kilrwatt at hotmail dot com. Thanks a lot in advance. Cheer

JC

Chris,
I used the regular old two part JB Weld epoxy with hardener right outta the tubes on a plastic fuel connector early last year (long story, part made out of unobtainium) still holding. I cannot say though whether there is direct contact with fuel.


There a product similar to the type you are talking about called Seal-All, that stuff will seal up the crack of dawn.... that I have used also on a plastic trail m/c tank but that was prior to the fuels we have now...

Hey, I'll jump on that Seal-All stuff. I was looking for another solution after I pick the JB weld off my tanks.

Save some for me.

I ended up using some of the steelstick. I'm essentially making a thick gasket out of it. I think the recessed nuts (at least one of them) in the tank where the petcock were are spinning and won't let me get any torque on them. We'll see if it holds. If not I should be able to get it off to try something else.

I'm sure there will be extra.

Will pick some up tomorrow while I'm out. Looks like advance auto parts has it.
