What Did You Do to Your Bike Today ?

Recommended Posts

Ordered clutch bearings from Megazip, should be fun  replacing them. 🙄

Will be ordering tyres for my old Blade from Avon shop in Bkk, 11,000 bht the pair carriage to home free, so too bad.

Ordering other makes from abroad cost about the same or more because of postal charges.

Avon are the only supplier in Thailand that can supply the 130/16 front maybe that why the old tyres on bike are Avon.

Use to have Bridgestone on the Blade I had in UK.

Cheers buddy I will go with this guy in P/lock as this workshop is the nearest type of big bike shop who knows of the legend of the CBR900RR Fireblade also it is the nearest to me, he speak some English and understands that I have a classic old bike as such so that helps I have more than just clutch bearings to sort, need carb overhaul kits, brake pads, brake hoses, tyres and maybe a front rim change from 16 to 17 which I don't wana do but finding a 130/70ZR/16 in Thailand is proving difficult.

Try Webike in Bangkok. They have a Japanese guy in their management and there's also a Webike Japan.

 

If you send them a message please use simple English.

Fir carb kits I reckon K & L. I've bought a kit from ebay, but here's K & L's website:

Today, I've turned the pilot screw for my front cylinder's carb 1/4th out to have a little bit richer fuel/air mixture. Then will check the color and get both cylinders spark plugs the same color with a healthy mixture.

 

Unfortunately, do I have to remove the air filter to get to the damn screw. But now I'm to 98.7 % close, girlie rides as fast as the devil.

Lifan X-plore-200.

papa had been running with dirt bike tires for the past year but

switched to the other street tires-wheels-chain-sprocket-rotor set-up

a couple weeks ago and have been tooling around on that.

Rear brake not braking this AM so

took into shop for fluid top-off/bleed.

He also tightened the bark-busters' mounts,

oiled the chain & kick-stand.

Material & labor B30.

😉

The most difficult task ever. I had to power glue the 1100 emblem back on when it came loose.  🧙‍♂️

Found another bad connection by luck today on my 25 year old bike would start up and then die just touching kill switch & starter switch wires, so that was some help.

Cut all harness cover and there were join connections on all wires a butcher job found again.

I suspected a kill switch wire and found a bad reading on the multimeter on in 1 of the 2 wires, whow what a relief from a nightmare of OK engine starting then stop dead situation.

Must get a new wiring harness made up, next job for sure.  

 

I've had some very similar issues on my also 24 year old bikie. One black wire coming from the starter switch was so stretched from turning left that it cut off one cylinder. 

 

  Left turn, engine almost died and nearly dropped me off when I wanted to ride out our place. Handlebar straight, all works well. Okay, easy to spot that it's somewhere in the harness. But where.

 

  A good trick is to use your fingernails to see if a wire is thinner, almost better than a meter that would read okay when straight. 

 

Of course a pain in the ar_e to open the whole harness and seek a faulty wire, but better than asking a Thai mechanic such a question.

 

   They would never find such a faulty wire, that's why they're so good and never fox things.

 

They only make things run, but not for long and you'll be back. Is it possible that the education has got something to do with it?

 

  Our son studied electronics for three years at the local technical college, but couldn't replace a light bulb without causing the bike to burn down. 

 

But we're working on it. 😁🤓

There were 6 wires coming from starter/kill switch in a harness wrap.

I had checked continuity with my multimeter already, I guess me pulling things about later finding fault with indicators right side front headlight and no hi beam had pulled on a connection.

I had cleaned plugs & connectors so knew they were OK but I needed to cut open harness switch side & plug end first, found there were shrink wire connections on all 6 wires.

I was hoping to find fault there because on the connector side going into dash unit & main harness would be major surgery. 

As luck would have it a continuity test on the 2 wires for the kill switch which I suspected as the fault, found one pulling slightly either side of the join a bad connection. 

All can say that I'm glad it's not a Goldwing with internal harness faults.  😄

Congratulations! Such little problems can cause a huge headache, innit?
