Re: Clutch bleed question

I didn't have that problem, but have read of others that have. "Slightly" grinding the point of the bleed screw fix's it.
I don't know why one would work & not another.
Search R1150R clutch speed bleeder screw, brings up a lot of discussion & photos.
Steve. let me know.

Re: Clutch bleed question

I just did mine in March? installed a speed bleeder. If I remember right, (I know just weeks ago) I think the allen plug unscrews, I went out to check the toolbox but I may have pitched it.. Mine was easy to remove, I might have read to apply a hair dryer if it's tough. Isn't it mandatory that you h...

Re: Where's that brakes flush procedure ?(nonABS)

Forget the shop. Read the procedure thru a few times & you'll soon realize the process/procedure & be able to visualize the steps start to finish. It's really not that hard. Make yourself some wood blocks from something you've got laying around. you can wait till the calipers are off to tria...

Re: Turn Signal Bulbs

Thanks, I ordered a BAX9S we'll see if it fits without changes. I don't think I'll do the wire switching for the benefit of a led in that spot.

Re: Turn Signal Bulbs

I've definitely noticed high heat & have "frosted" a pair of clear lenses I ran at one time with yellow 1156 bulbs, of course the yellow bulb is NOT the stock required color either. Having switched to "smoke lenses" recently, I didn't want to wreck them with a white or yellow...

Re: Sargent seat, how much rise from original?

I had saved some part numbers for the oem seats, but must have decided I'll never need them & pitched em.
I had the same problem you've described with the forward sliding, Just a 25 mile ride was enough, thighs were aching too..

Brake Fluid or Silicon oil Packet

calipers soon to be rebuilt. Included was a packet of silicon oil. Should I use it, or just brake fluid?

Thanks..
