The Motobrick Workshop / Re: How far will a tank take you?
« Last post by caveman on Today at 06:52:27 PM »
I"m looking for gas around 120 miles on my RT or LT if riding hard and can get 180 or a bit more if taking it easy. If I push those big fairings over 80/ 85 MPH it seems like all I do is go gas station to gas station! On the 75S I get 200+ most all the time unless pushing very hard.

As of today injectors are done so should arrive Wednesday or Thursday. Here is what Bill said in an email to me:

"Hi John,
 ​ ​
Your injectors arrived and have been serviced. They had some flow loss and pattern irregularities, two of them were stuck,  but they cleaned up perfectly so if you continue to have problems you can rule out injectors as the cause. There will be a full flow report in the package. ​"

I'm not sure if this was the sole cause of the engine not starting, he said it should have at least sputtered, but apparently they were badly in need of service so I am glad I got it done.

The Motobrick Workshop / How far will a tank take you?
« Last post by billday on Today at 06:07:20 PM »
Somewhere recently I said how I always gas up around 150 miles.

On Friday I proved to myself that I can go 180 on a tank. I didn't set out to make this point, it was exciting going deeper and deeper into the Adirondacks not knowing when I'd see fuel again . . . took just a hair over 4 gallons.

use my mind to connect with the whack moto and be one with the whack moto... then unwhack the moto...

Do you ever find that you can't get a good connection with whack moto due to your inner 4-pin corrosion, or lack of proper grounding in this plain of existence?

At what point does CBP and/or eyeball pizza come in?

BG XXXX is the brew of choice in the northern realms. And the book is not available off the shelf in OZ only in the US and the UK.

Almost. It should have ~12.5V ignition On, not running, then pulsating negative voltage when cranking. Remove fuel pump fuse to assure the engine won't start.

No voltage at either pin. ???

Project Classic Motobricks / Re: 1987 K100LT Resto - from bits to brick

When you get it out, post the size.  I have a bunch of them laying in my tool chest.  One of them might work for you.

Thank you very much!

The tools are on order so I took advantage of the break to work on refinishing the timing chain, camshaft and crankshaft covers.  I guess it is true that the obstacle is the way, the impediment to action enhances action. 

In case anyone needs to order the same or a few other tools Ken was quick to respond.  His info is below:

Polepenhollow Valve Tools and Clutch Pilots

The covers required some sanding, careful masking the paint and clear high temp semi-gloss.  I think they came out OK but not perfect.  A little dust flew into the garage and shows in the picture but they were dry and cured at that point. 

More parts arrived at the end of last week including the two new tires.  Powdercoater says the wheels are ready so I will be picking them up soon.  We shall see!
