Project Custom Motobricks / Re: Arktasian's 95 K75 on Microsquirt Mod Table
« Last post by Arktasian on January 28, 2023, 11:15:13 AM »
I performed a flow test on the 250cc (24lb) EV1 injectors I'm using. I chose this size to reflect fueling increases that will develop with forced induction. The little test stand in photos posted above actually worked well, and utilizing an Excel file a "Dead Time" spec of 0.5ms results. This spec is something that is important to enter into the tuning program (Tuner Studio), and interestingly isn't provided by most suppliers (& when it is provided or plagiarized from another squirter tends to be wrong).
Wiring progresses systematically and with good integration with original circuits and space available. (I couldn't attach the Xcel file here, if anyone is doing a similar project and is interested in the file, notify me and I'll email it too you)

Dang!  That's some purdy stuff you got there.

Lots of progress on my project today.  Front rotors got installed completing the front wheel.  I mounted the center stand after topping up all the grease fittings and fitting rubber caps.  I tried out my new fabrication vice- gripping my calipers so I could split them, ultrasonic clean and extract four seized pistons.  While I wait for gold plated suspension parts I repainted the fork sliders. More tomorrow.

I stumbled upon this video that was uploaded TODAY  :johnny. Yeah, I know, surprised me too. The repair guide is extremely detailed, so I figured this could be useful for anyone in the future trying to repair their speedo/odo.

All good input gratefully received. CA I have tons of experience with and alas the end bond is quite brittle. polyurethane will fail at the first flex I suspect.  I'll reseach the stainess...I have some fine carbon fiber rod that might do the trick filling a drilled hole and slathered in 5200.... The 5200 is used to create hinges for RC gliders that  fly in rather strong winds to 40mph. The bonding force is terrific and creates a flexible nearly indestrucible hinge point. 

Again, thanks.

I've never handled an 1100 side cover, but in my experience I suspect that they are made of the same stuff as the 1100 belly pan which is polyurethane. 

You can confirm this by pulling back the insulation and looking for a molded data tag that has information about the part and should have the letters "PUR" indicating the material is Polyurethene.

3M 5200, which is a polyurethane adhesive, might work, but it will need help.  Instead of using thread I would use fine 0.010" stainless steel seizing wire.  I would also look at adding a couple reinforcing rods through the joint.  I would think that something about 0.020" would work. 

About 5200, in my experience it is more of a gap filling adhesive.  If the parts have a clean break, the strongest bond may be through the use of CA glue(Super Glue).  Regardless of what I used, it would only be to hold the parts together while I made the real repair with wire reinforcements and stitching.

For more ideas, you could look for some videos related to "Bumper Facia Repair".

Addendum:  what glue might you choose? and what is this rubbery material? Urethane?

No glue used . I used a tiny bolt/nut in the center to attach it. There's a scrap of 1/8" thick plastic thick in between to push it out a little. You could use fender washers as spacers instead.

Mystic red is slightly darker and metallic.

Marakesh red is non-metallic.
