Soon my bike will be disassembled without tools ...maybe not.

But would like to get hold of a winged style DZUS that would fit the glove compartment with the snap out bracket, had some but they are a smaller size.

Tried lifting the front wheel some when filling coolant since there won't be any wheelie until the spring:




So once the bikes were buttoned back up and I had played a little with TuneECU it was time for a test start:



But there is some strange high pitch sound from the new bike.

Hope its just the clutch, did try to skip the extra thin friction plate at the bottom of the stack and the steel place showed some wear for the bent spacer washer spring thingie.

And the old 950 had cam chain clatter as after an oil change, have noticed that before after its been on its side.

Any thoughts about the strange sound? Please say!

Cheers!

Have some new friction plates on the way for the old bike to get it working.

Ran into an issue with the seat, missing one rubber spacer (well have 3 seats so no problem right now).

But would like to get hold of one so they are all complete but can find this rubber piece as a spare part?



Adding another question also anyone use the glovebox for First Aid kit? And can direct me to a suitable kit that will fit there?

Miss blister patches but that can be added, that is what has been mostly used so they should be easy to get to also.

Have a Lifesystem First Aid kit that I have been using for longer travels, very complete kit but a bit on the big side and will NOT fit inside the glove box.

Thanks for the help, have to see if they can be bought in Sweden or how bad shipping would be.

Have biltema nearby and its cheap, not sure how waterproof the glove box is and if its going to be in there all the time waterproof would be preferred, will at least go look at the biltema solution.

Thanks!

Hei Johan,

My 950 glovebox is waterproof (rainproof) from factory. I bet, Your`s also.

Have had this biltema`s first aid kit laying in there for 3 seasons - no problemo.

Regards

There is a break in the seal on the 990 glovebox but still should be quite protected.

The Biltema kit in a sturdy plastic bag might be the cheapest simplest solution.

I like cheap right now, wanted to keep the 950 another year or 2 but since the LC8 is going out of style if felt right to buy one now.

That biltema first aid kit wont fit in a 990 new style glove box:



Maybe they had one that was slightly smaller a few years ago or the 950 has a bigger glovebox?

Hei,
Seems that the biltema kit has changed. I got then (few years ago) a kit with soft shell. Unfortunately my bike is in molecules right now, so I can try to make glovebox assembly and take the picture.

This is more of a hard shell, would have been great had it been a little smaller.

Think the glove box is a little smaller also then the 950, was so long since I had that useable, been occupied by a Pyndon pre-filter the last few years.

The CPR dog house might be another option, but the heat might ruin some stuff in a first aid kit? Most have some burn cream and the most important and mostly used blister patches might not like.

And its harder to get to you have to get the seat of and depending if things are strapped to it might be annoying for just a band aid or something small.

Used to have some tank panniers mounted to the front fairings had the first aid kit in one of those before but not sure I will mount them on the new bike, maybe if I can figure out an easier way to take them on and off.
