Go Racks? ... cont'd

I got the other half completed…..yippee!





The 1" offset kept them tucked in nicely. And I set the lower brace very tightly against the heat shield. I don't like my legs hitting any protrusions behind me.





All the edges are rounded off smooth too.





The crossover bridge took some contemplation….to make it mount properly, like I wanted .

The threaded holes in the subframe are very deep inside the plastic tail rack mount. AND the plastic rack surface is at a steep angle, not parallel to the threaded bolt holes. So, I cut two metal spacers very precisely which extend evenly a little distance above the plastic rack….




Then, I filed the surface parallel to the ground ( more or less). This really help level out the bridge and give it a solid mount against the subframe far below. It took some long strong bolts, to be certain…



And, I slipped on a tight fitting nylon spacer to fill the gap inside the steel spacer…..just because!

Goes in like so:











Just need my rattle can of paint and some warmer weather to finish up this project. Because my "paint shop" consists of a wire shirt hanger suspended from a tree limb in the yard.

Super Nice Job High Five! I really like the crossover and thought about doing that too. Two top supports per side will hold up the world! Think about making a back loop though, to support that rear fender and keep it from shaking up and down, maybe cracking like a few have.

I purchased extra pipe to practice on, and was burning thru the tubing on the hottest setting. Knocking the tarnish off with a wire wheel seemed to help it take better.

I seemed to be getting good penetration most of the time....when it was buzzing along nicely, and then suddenly it would all go to pot. Some spots just didn't want to take a weld without major fuss, when nothing else had changed. It's was quite puzzling, I'd be running smoothly then "bam....pop, crackle, snap". So yeah, there was a bit of grinding & re-welding at times. Kind of frustrating, but still a blast to do. The sense of accomplishment is huge!

I have plenty of extra pipe left to play with. So, keep the advise & council coming...

I didn't see an answer to this yet. IT might be something as simple as your inert gas bottle running low. What gas are you using or is it flux core? I'm a Lincoln man so I'm not familiar with the Hobart but you say it is little. I would guess that you exceeded the duty cycle and it is just asking for a rest. So I would just stop when that happens and just go smoke, or drink a mountain dew, wack off, whatever you do to pass the time, then come back and finish that bitch!

Lookin' good!

I agree. The tail dong needs to be cut off or supported.

It could be the ground cable coming lose. Or possibly not using any nozzle gel.


You are using nozzle gel, right HF?

I'm stuck with desk duties tonight.

It took me 2 hours to format that so ADV would accept it under the 40,000 character post limit.

Enjoy.

This explains a few things...

lubricating oil................................ CASTROL POWER1 RACING SAE 10W-50
Oil and oil filter replacement.................................................. ................... 0,44 Imp. Gall. / 0,528 U.S. Gall. / 2.0 l
Topping up oil between minimum and max. level.................................. 0,055 Imp. Gall. / 0,066 U.S. Gall. / l 0.25


The oil capacity 2.25 litres ?

Doing a 9,000km oil, filter and air change tomorrow. I'm taking it to the dealer for the valve adjustment in a couple of weeks. (I have a good local guy, he says it's a 3.5 hour job) Take pix RE

Reading the service manual, it recommends oil changes every 10,000km (6200 miles)...

Am I the only one changing mine every 3k miles?

Thanks for the input, TurbStL: Argon mix....still had about 1/3 bottle according to gauge....running solid at 20 psi regulator setting when I pull the trigger. Welds were fairly short period, and at approx half way on the heat setting and speed....so it shouldn't been exceeding duty cycle. Hhhhmmmm.....

Nozzle gel Search me...

What's that?

Probably answers your question.

I have taken good measures to significantly improve my grounding. Did figure that out early on, after some frustration. So, I think I maintained a solid ground directly to the piece.....and it wasn't moving.

HF

Ps. Awesome List, by the way. Super thanks for building that!!!

It will help with weld spatter, and helps with a smoother bead. May or may not fix your issue, but you should use it anyways.

I'm with you there. Very rarely go past 3000 miles on oil changes.

Oil Change Interval

Yup....approx 3,000 miles or so, for me typically.

HF

p.s. On my Berg390, I'll go by hours instead....since its mostly slow speed trail riding. Ok, maybe not so slow. But you get the idea.
