Put it all back together to run and did a short shakedown ride on city streets, returned to mount up stock skidplate and found that I have a stripped hole in the lower tank guard. Yes, after mounting the tanks and crashbars and mounting up the crashbar studs.

Ugh. Ideas?

Either get a new plate $85 or buy an insert $70, I think tapping for a larger thread is out.

Rescued a new 2012 990 R from a dealer that should stick to selling Japanese street bikes only.

I haven't mounted it yet so no actual fuel but doing the math it should hold just over one gallon. Not as much as some of the aftermarket alternatives but the price is right and it is 30 more miles you wouldn't have to push you bike.

-Removed the Spark Arrestor
-Unscrewed the end cap screws
-Pull the pipe apart (not easy)




Old packing


Empty can...


Stock core with packing removed...


Starting to wrap...


Lots of wrapping... Don't wrap it tight!


All wrapped,.. now you just squeeze it in.


Be gentle and push the packing and pipe core in together. It would be very easy to have ll the packing at one end of the pipe. You want to make sure it is evenly distributed throughout the length of the pipe.



Making progress...


Almost there....
Put some high temp RTV on the joint, line the holes up and replace the screws. You are done.

I buy the wood stove sealing rope and use that in my pipes that need packing. It's easier to install and lasts a lot longer and usually costs less too.
