Don't have time to answer right now...


Put in five hours this morning. My goal was to bleed and test the clutch master as I'm down to the wire if I need to order another one.

Frame inside:




Had to go from this:




To this, on one side:




Had to figure out how to get the intake on, this didn't work.




Bolted it to the frame first, then had to slide the frame in from the back.




Here's how that tractor filter works for those that don't know. Inner filter that should never see dirt on the left, outer filter gets replaced when dirty.




Intake complete:




Oil cooler:




Forks, fender..stuff:




Handlebars:




Flushed nasty fluid out of clutch slave, splattered brake fluid all over the place in a big hurry...slapped the front wheel on so I could go rinse off the mess.




Clutch master works good, lever in, in gear, rolls free, lever out in gear, tire drags...perfect.




Gotta get a snack and off to work...later on.

Uh, brake fluid is bad for paint.

Just sayin'....





I love how you slid the frame/intake on as one unit. After looking at all that and watching you take the frame off - that's some close work.

Can't blame you for not wasting any more time on their poor business practices...

That was just for the throttle assembly and I didn't want to rag on the shop that sent it because they didn't have anything to do with Motion "Pro" screwing up my order. Hopefully they send me another survey form. I told the jerks to not worry about the money I spent sending their mistake back, but to throw in a hat or t-shirt to make up for their mistake...I'm thinking that they can't do that because the would be sending out 50 meelion dollars in hats per year.

Jim

I'm near Sacramento, but I'll be in Death Valley with the bike from Veterans Day into December...come on out. I'll be at Panamint Springs Resort on Turkey Day...can't guarantee a date or location other than that one day.


Thanks for the support posts, it helps...getting it done!!

Goal for tomorrow is to make it run, must do in case I need to do some jetting work.


Edit: How much oil does this thing hold? I've got a gallon of 15w40 here. I need to run down to the auto parts store for another fuel filter...is there a WIX oil filter that fits? What size filter cup thingy do I need to get the filter off? Sorry for the dumb questions...I'm burning it at both ends here...

Channellocks. Big assed ones.

Man, wait until 3-4 months down the road when the bike runs great, you did your awesome trip and now you just get to tinker with it. Some guy will come into the forum with a crazy build, hard deadline and will be ripping his hair out, no sleep racing to get the bike done. Remember that.

You can dooooo eeeeeeeeet

Not on this thing, the filter is flush with the bottom of the sump.

I still have to rebuild the final drive this weekend.

Everything was a struggle today, needed somebody to hold stuff, but fought the bars flopping around instead.

It was pretty tough to get the throttle cables routed good, but they're in there now. Motion "Pro" completely ignored my request for an extra splitter to be included in my order and I think I should have one, these are cheap and crappy. There are spreader pins up at the throttle to keep the cables apart and one was too long...cracked the housing, F Motion "Pro", I've had it with them. Not that big of a deal, it still works and another one is $16...I'm partly to blame for not fixing it before I cracked the housing.

Random pics...












Changing the engine running goal to Saturday, just too much to do yet.

I think I'm going to need a longer Adventure model rear shock at some point.

Four quarts, got it. Get used to calling me Rob since we might meet in meatspace.


One more pic from earlier.




mike54 is super awesome!!!



Thanks mike, I was gonna run the old filter and worry about it later. The 1348 Wix doesn't fit that tool for your info.


Got the oil and filter changed just now. Started putting the back fender on. Co-workers are begging me to get some sleep.
