Sweet. I will try the Grambo first and see what happens and go from there. Thanks again and safe journey !
It doesn't take much effort to toss a allen key in the tool pouch.. plus it looks a lot better on the bike.. I'll take a few pics tomorrow and post them.. The bolt works too. But I think it looks a bit frankensteinish.I liked the look of the allen too but figured there are so many bolts on our bike already that uses a 10 and 12mm wrench I would keep it the same.
If your still leaking from the rear simply remove it. Clean off the oil & use a good sealant like the black RTV & apply it around the nut & threads to seal it. No one will see it behind the resivoir anyway.:doh::doh::doh: STILL LEAKING!!!
Maybe got the MCCT too tight??? Too much pressure on the CCT guide can slow the engine down.I did this the other day, and got it nice and quiet and it ran good that night. Today, I rode it to work and the battery died when I got gas. Knew the battery was going bad so got a new one.
On the way home, it dies at every stop sign. It starts up but won't idle. I got it home barely and it seems to have a knock kinda like the acct going bad sound but Loud. May not be related to the mcct conversion but I'm thinking maybe I should put the acct back in?? This bike has been nothing but a pain in my ass. I ride it a week then it's down a week, rinse and repeat until it just blows up lol.
Any help? Oh, it stinks really bad now too.
I agree wib, but he didn`t really give any info about how he adjusted it.think you would have to tighten it pretty good to kill the engine, but if you just screw it in with your fingers till its snug, start the bike you shouldnt have to tighten it a 1/4 turn or so at most, the acct spring you are replacing is not a very stiff spring at all so it shouldnt take much pressure to quiet it down. as for the smell?
someone should carry a fully threaded one, mine was chrome if that helps or a few members have used an allen wrench head that was full threaded!I'm in the process of doing this but every where I go the 6x1x40mm only has threads on half the bolt. Is that normal? Am I looking at the wrong thing?
