Thumb Cleaned/Re-lubed Swingarm bearings/bushings 950A

The seals eventually came out before calling it done. Used my favorite workbench-F150 tailgate


Bought this bike this past July...little by little, I'm taking care of the maint. that needs to be done. 14.5 K miles, I'm the third owner

Also cleaned the clutch oil jet


Bugger to get outta there. I ended up using compressed air...blew the jet clean outta the hole

Cripes... I've put more miles on mine that that this summer (the majority of it on dirt).. I guess I better take a look at the oil jet

Was yours clean?

Jake's clutch oil jet's cleanliness=:-)

Hi Geek, I gotta say, it was absolutley pristine in there. Made me wonder why I took it apart. It was not easy removing the jet. Getting the tension to break with availible screwdrivers on hand was not the problem, rather trying to lift it out of the hole. What worked in the end was using compressed air which blew it outta there. Again, it was absolutely spotless

As anal as I can be, I annealed the copper sealing washer but that left it with flame residue flakes so I mixed up a tablespoon of powedered citric acid with maybe 5 ounces of hot water to thoroughly clean the copper gasket. My fear was if I didn't clean it, maybe a flake or piece of detritus from the annealing would make it's way into the clutch oil jet orifice. I'd suggest if you don't want to bother with this step (cleaning up the annealing), to buy a replacement gasket before going into this procedure

It wasn't a big deal for me using the citric acid...I've purchased several pounds of it in the past when I was restoring a commercial espresso machine with lots of copper bits (boiler, water lines) that had some slight scale issues. Calcium content in water if not filtered out properly will accumulate in the system, citric acid mixed with hot water will clean any copper making it look like a new shiny penny

That said, I've been told (by an 950A peep whose cleaned this jet many times) you can re-use this gasket w/o fear of oil getting past it, but I'd rather not take that chance

Sargent also has a discount going now. I just got mine back and love it. It still retains the narrow design, but the arse area is lower to the ground and actually more comfy than stock.

Right at $300 bucks with shipping.

Hi BA - did you remap when you put the FMFs on?

I think you were looking at TeamBFT's bike... he has the FMF's. I still have stock pipes, but have a new set of Leo Vince sitting in the box waiting for a new header pipe, then the little suckers are going on.

Nice saddle, especially for the money. I've had 3 diffeent Ru$$ell saddles through the years and know how supportive the tractor style reinforced seat can be...and I like the fact (Rocky/Bill) is using foam instead of a leaf spring

What I wanted to ask you is if you were consulted about the seat location (tractor dish)? I ask as it seems further back vs. where I think I place my can on my stock 950A seat. Although you probably don't have much time on this seat yet, what is your overall opinion on riding comfort? Any drawbacks?

FWIW, I'd love to send my 950A seat to Mayer before the end of the month (to take advantage of the 25% off), but I'm going to have to get very lucky financially=:-)

I've ridden my new to me 950A (bought 3rd hand last July) 1000 miles. The oem seat is not comfortable for me, even on short runs. My only complaint as far as ergonomics go with this bike is the seat. It neeeds to be higher and more supportive...but I can say that about any bike that comes my way stock (most of them). FWIW, my pant inseam is 32"

Teti:
una alternativa es alimentar desde ACC2 el circuito de comando de un relay (RALUX) y conectar desde la bateria con un cable (4mm.) la potencia que pasa por el relay y va a los faros.
A su vez el circuito de comando del relay con un interruptor de tres posiciones asi lo pones opcional 1) con la luz larga, 0)apagado o 2)encendido directo desde ACC2 por si fallan las altas..

Si interesa paso el esquema por mail.
