Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

Clean enough image.jpeg Power valve closed, bit of carbon on the tongue image.jpeg Powervalve open and it looks uncarboned enough for me. I use a caster blend oil at 50 to 1 so was expecting a little more carbon because of the caster component. Nothing to worry about hear, don't think I will take it...

Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

Just how I left it so the power valve seals are holding image.jpeg Looks like some type of corrosion so might put something on then when I put it together image.jpeg Oil laying around image.jpeg There is that dark section on the gasket. Looks like it may be leeking. Could be why it idles high and th...

Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

it's time to have a look in there. Take it out and give it a good scrub and nothing looks out of place. image.jpeg First look at the plug for a long time and it looks about right. Not that much carbon build up and On the rich side which is expected seeing how it's mostly ridden in the low to mid ran...

I did learn a few things like the speed you go up a hill is about the same speed you can go down it. If you have to walk it up then you will walk it down.
I went unrestricted V8 all the way home and still had about 1/3 left.

Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

There are no singes but that gate says enough. I saw a glimpse of 98% so will take it as a questionable but valid reading. If that's so then I have enough to go unrestricted. I have justified my foot print as nearly non existent. With wide large road tirs there is little grip. It can't grip much mor...

Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

For a while I couldent work out how to mount the motor cut out sensor for the new front brake. The sensor sits on the master cilinder ok with some double sided tape, after a while I will remove the cable tie and it should sit there just fine. The magnetic washer on the other hand was a problem. It w...

Re: My long time friend the pransing horse

Sometimes when you go off a gutter or footpath to hard there is a clunking sound. I suspect it's the batteries jumping within its own case. So worth a tri is to loosen the top strap off. image.png Make something like this up image.png Top one image.png And bottom one. image.png Unfortunaliyni think ...
