customized front on the Uly. looks good , in for a new front tyre as it drops pressure
caliper off, axle loose
wheel out , and off course bearing check.. the fact we replaced these not so long ago nothing wrong... but check it anyway
new tyre on and setting the front axle to tq
leaking drain plug, the treads are gone in the swingarm
and i can unscrew it by hand... not good
auto stores sell boxes oversize plugs... there odd sized so in most cases you can use the existing hole and ream / tap the new threads in
sticky grease on the tap to catch the burrs
so to leave as little as posible in the swingarm , rinse the swing arm out
and new plug in , with a little hydrolic loctite ... don't over tighten these
hooking up the feeds to the navigation ... the flyscreen is a tilt away construction... nice
filled with oil... oil pressure light douse not come on at key switch
easy check if the sensor is broken.. tough ground with a screw driver it usualy works
thin walled socket i ones made to i can chance these easy.
and working... check this lot off people never notice the light douse not work at key switch and think it wil go on with to little oil pressure... but if the sensor is not working it will never burn
last start up top end overhaul..
last start up top end overhaul...
time to rebuild stuff , i will remove the original intake restiction and free some horses
with after market exhaust , the original exhaust solinoid can also be remove , loosing a other half kilo on the bike :-) will take care off the error light
the cable for the solinoid is next to the battery, remove the ground tab, pull the connector apart —
and you can pull the cable out running throught the fan hole in the frame
cover on and ready to test ride.. i leave the cooling scoops off for now to check for oil leaks after first ride —
and fix the loose battery try, bolts passengerpegs where in wrong... long one needs to go in the rear hole
short bolt to the front
and long bolts trought the battery tray
and with a lock nut ( 3/8" size ) fasten the battery try
powercoating came back... customer asked for us to put it to getter
wings back on
after powder coating most things need a little work.. as the thick layer off coating makes holes smaller
and needed to clean up the space for the peg, to go in
white... ready to on the bike
