bleeding

well captain and deejay inspired me to do the hose swap and bleed my brakes

good news is the new hose and mc bolted right up and looks good

the soon to be seen news is wether I can get ALL the bubbles out

its just taking me longer than usual but Im getting firm at the lever(please no jokes jajaja)

so the lever is sitting there while I bleed the lower banjo every 5 minutes or so and tap tap tap at the mc

yes I know reverse bleed blah blah blah, thing is I dont know where I put all that crap when I moved

so its old school style bleed for me

so far so good

now just need to rejet the needle on the carb I think and maybe up the main jet and I should be ok for the meantime

Im getting close to 50mpg which is too lean now that I think about it for the way I ride jajaja

peace

Christian,

When ya park the bike for the day get a strap, zip tie, bungie cord or whatever and put it on the front brake lever in the applied position and turn the bars so the master cylinder is at the high position. The real tiny bubbles will find their way to the top and out of the system.

What helped for me was putting the fluidcap back on, and tilting the bike over from right to left allmost all the way. helps the stuck bubbles on their way up.

also tap the banjobolts and the caliper with a small ringspanner (10/12mm)

When I did a partial top-end rebuild last year I made the royal mistake of using a chinese gasket set to put er back together again.
Replaced the stator and clutch gaskets in the meantime cause they´re easy to get to, but I still have an oil leaking problem. Time has finally come to replace the base and head gaskets.

Lesson learned !

Meantime I'll be replacing my crank puls generator aswell, maybe that'll finally fix the problem of erratic idling and stalling

stock dpr8 or dpr9 for long high speed

I learned to gap them at 1mm instead of .8-9 for better burn
