Has anyone ever done a repair live like on TikTok so that other members could interact?
Not that I know of. Only time I see tic tok is when it pops up on Facebook, but I can't interact.Has anyone ever done a repair live like on TikTok so that other members could interact?
Have you got six hours to watch me look for the right size wrench?Has anyone ever done a repair live like on TikTok so that other members could interact?
The yellow one is fuel and the red is vacuum.well I didn't go live, but I did get the splines lubed. I also replaced the o-ring that was leaking at the top of the rear cylinder. Wish now I had been live because I had some trouble getting the tank back on.
When I disconnected the petcock to life the tank off far enough I noticed that the two hoses boing back to the carbs were not clamped at all, which seemed odd, but my friend told me it was normal since they are not under any pressure. The hose going down from the petcock had this tiny weak little clamp. They all three came off easy.
When we put the tank back and started the bike, the line on the right was leaky. it seems to have a tiny crack on the very rim of it, so we ended up putting a clamp on it for now. What should I do with that? I've included some pictures so you can see the line that was leaky. The yellows the hose and where it connects to the petcock (on the right side of it facing it). And the red shows the lower line, the one that does have a clamp. Didn't have any trouble with that lower line or the one on the left, just the right one.
Is a clamp okay there? Should I try to replace the hose? I'm afraid I might have to take the whole freaking bike apart to get to the other end of that hose.

No that's fine, the factory does. You should cut the cracked end off though.Is it bad that I put a clamp on it?
Yes the factory always uses clamps.The yellow one is the one that didn't have a clamp. Are you saying that from the factory it did?
