oil change

did my first oil change on the beast which was fairly easy since i have the cj hose thingy however i forgo changing the screen inside the port hose right next to the drain plug since removing the crash bars and my left tank seems like a lot of work. I know for a fact that it hasn't been checked in the last oil change either so would advise me to go ahead and do it or it doesn't matter? ( i haven't put new oil in it yet).
Also i added too much water to my coolant reservoir, do i need to drain it out or is it something that will occur naturally?
thanks in advance for the help.

Pissed failed service

Finally got to take my 950A out for a shakedown after a whole list of service items.

Get home to pop skidplate back on and find that the *&%$*%&$ o-ring on the bearing bolt that i replaced ( part #60036071044 for the bolt and oring, just did the oring) is LEAKING AGAIN! oil all over the front/left of the motor.

why is it hidden behind the tank and oil tank and radiator and uggghhh.
When i get the new bolt/o-ring to install I will be adding a liquid sealant so i wont care if it nicks the ring again, I was stupid careful with the last install.

angry, sad, let down, wanted to ride, now maybe i will actually finish my write up for the now failed service i did do. parts are probably weeks out.

If I had it all to do over again that'd be the first mod I'd do, without question.



I finally got around to putting the graphics on the bike that I ordered while studying for my Commercial Law final. It's dangerous for me to have an idea with quick access to a computer...

And you can come down and ride to Baja with me when you've got them dialed in. They look awesome!

Same same

I had the same leak, but it turned out not to be the o-ring... it was the damn sensor itself! The center of the sensor is like a hard, black epoxy framed by black plastic. It was the seam between the epoxy and the frame that leaked on my bike. Weird.

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

I installed a new sensor and o-ring and all is well. Good luck hunting it down. Hopefully it's just the o-ring.

Cheers,
Lance

Powersports Grafix. I've had sets from them on all my dirt bikes and couldn't be happier.

I'm sure you'll come up with some fix that adds 15 hp, 30 ft lbs of torque, and weighs half of what the original pipe did using a rubber band, a Coke can, and some bubble gum.
