Re: What have you tinkered with today?

On my F800ST i have now installed a voltmeter, as these too can through RR's if you're unlucky, and the stators can fail due to overheating.
It also helps when you're starting the bike up for the...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Ouch. To be fair my Mum's car is only 7 years old and done 40k miles, so the bolts were probably in a better condition. I also had the luxury of being able to soak everything in penetration fluid for...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

They are a PIA as you have to compress the springs so much to get the strut in/out as the wishbone doesn't move that far.

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Fitted a new coil spring to my Mum's Audi A1. Not too bad to do, but a bit fiddly.

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Last coat of anti slip went on today. Once that's dried i'll be tackling the mudguards next. And it'll be looking better for it once all done.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Or simply put some hot/boiling water in a bowl, immerse only the lid for a few seconds and it should help to release it (obv use a tea towel or something to hold the lid afterwards)

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

New grips on the bike as the old ones were a bit worn out. A slightly tedious job cutting the old ones off, trying not to damage the heated grip elements - they still work which is good news and a...

Is this the standard SV set up, with one line from master cylinder to calliper, then a feeder line to the other side?

I would do a conventional bleed and it should be fine. You could do the main...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

check your local bearings shop and see if they have them in. Being a swingarm & wheel bearings they won't be anything special/size specific.
