Sean-O: I would not stress it man, if all the bolt holes line up, and the welds are solid, that shit should be bomb proof. Start selling those things so I can buy one! I need one before my TAT trip, leaving in last weekend in Aug. So make sure i can get one

Hose it down with brake cleaner, then dust the area very well with baby powder. Any leaks will become apparent. It might requiring warming the bike up, or even riding it.

Those O-rings are a pain in the ass though. I've pinched one before.

Good luck.




The above buttons on the bars appear to be a remote for an Ipod or music player. I know one guy that has an arm band control that works to wirelessly change his music while riding.

I bought mine off of ebay. The buttons are a bit small, but other than that, I love having some kind of control for my old iPod Classic. It came with a bicycle handle bar mount that I adapted to the motorcycle bars with some black zipties and some black electrical tape for extra insurance. Not pretty but functional!

EDIT: Shibby beat me to it by 5 mins!

I can pretty clearly see the oil seep out in between the fiter cover and crankcase cover. I have taken the cover off maybe 10 times at this point. not really seeing any cracks. I will check again thanks. Is there anything I can do to the surface of the crankcase cover to get it to seal better with the oil filter cover? Man I wish the oil filter was just the screw on type! I have not been able to ride this for weeks due to this. The oil leaks out and splatters the right peg and tire. Makes right turns "interesting."

Fork Oil Changing Post

Been searching and have yet to "re find" an old post here on proper procedure for fork oil changing. I have the factory manual but wanted to double check somethings from a post I saw here a while back.

Anyone have that, if it exists, bookmarked?

Any other comments on the change welcome. Done this on other bikes, just want to have as much info on the front end so I don't butcher the job.

Cheers..

Hinson basket up date

Part # HO172 after years of my hard use it is looking like it is ready to be replaced still working good but looks like the stock did when it went out. Today I call Hinson and talk with them and they sold me a replacement at a great deal. what a great place to deal with. at 20k miles of use the basket looked new at 35k mile not so much.

grade A+ get one you will need it at some point if you ride on the road. B

Anyone have an in good shape slip on they would be willing to sell? I have had it with this R4.

Too damned loud so I put a baffle in the core, went to put it back together and the cap won't sit right and it's just a turd and I'm done with it.

Make sure all the oil is out of the screw holes. Jam paper towel in there to soak it out. Depending on how bad the leak is, sometimes they can weep oil for awhile afterwards.

Consider that another spot where there might be a crack too.

Neduro does a nice write up on this forum. Just do a search in the Thumpers thread for neduro and fork oil change. Fourth or fifth one down.

Sounds like a cut oring or no oring is being used for it to leak.

Those are the same directions I used the first time I did my fork oil. I found them by searching and wasn't even an Advrider member yet. They're spot on!
