Spent an hour just to chase the threads so I could fit fork leg pinch bolts.
Yes but you feel satisfied now because the threads are silky smooth aren't they, UH HUH
..... I didnt even have time to look up and see what/who it was
Absolutely, be able to sleep tonight!
But I also made a tool to fit my new throttle shaft seals to carb 1.
Dropped my frame down at the blaster this morning... well midday. Expecting it to be ready later in the week which is fine as I need to do a mercy run to Moree on Wednesday / Thursday to fix a Solar Pump installation.. he rings me at 3pm to come and get it.. all done thank you very much.
So I have hung it up on 2 straps from the garage roof... and given it a reasonable coat of Etch Primer.. I will turn it up the other way in the morning... just to make sure I didnt miss anywhere.
I also managed to source another puller and the crank is now out of the cases.. This weekend will the stripping the paint off them and getting them ready to go off for machining to take the 350 barrel
Ok, maybe 1 or 2 today
Got the new 15w oil and zeal springs loaded up and the seal doctor did its thing .... damn those springs and spacers were bloody hard to compress to get the caps on , even with no weight on the forks and fully extended .
Just rolling and braking in the driveway and they feel extremely stiff
Ill drop the front end a few mm then a road test maybe t/m
Stiff as in a good stiff like a stiffy which makes you grin?
You could get some basic measurements on sag to see where you're at -
Great Job, may I ask which blaster did you use? Cheers
A local mob.. Outer West Sandblasting in Penrith... and yes.. he does a great job, not too abrasive so the VIN stays legible and all the bolt holes etc dont need to be chased (which I will do anyway... just me being pedantic).
They have some lovely old car bodies etc down there waiting to be blasted..
So trying to find the torque setting for the lower triple tree bolts .... this is for the Zeal .... anyone know exactly which one it is ....under bracket and inner tube?..... mumbo jumbo descriptions they use
What size are the bolts?
This size ....
M10 Bolt's for the tripple's
It will be an M10 bolt. Remove it and clean the thread with a wire brush, lubricate with a little WD40 and then tighten with a combination spanner, or 3/8" drive ratchet. It is the right length to give you a good feel for the correct tightness. Generic torque tables are basically useless in my opinion because torque varies with length of thread contact, pitch, materials, lubricant or dry, and size.
Sounds like a plan .... lucky I did alter the fork height as 1 of those bolts was barely tight beforehand
Took my FZR over to Superbike Performance today looking for a cheaper option to the drag's on this sunday.
Thought i might be able to get a couple of power run's done just to check the carby's out etc
Getting a couple of power run's done is also $100, so think i'll go the drag route as it's a bit more fun for me.
I can only stay for the morning if i do go, as my son is playing footy at 1pm and it'll take an hour or so to get home from the drag's
The old pig with a shampoo and blow dry ready for the Texas 2step
Be interesting to hear how it goes with the Zeal springs in the front end...
I just went out briefly before just up the road and round the block ... it feels really good and tight and banging on the brakes its feels 100% better .... not at any great speed though so t/m ill go out to the 'test track' and give it a go
