Looking good !
Yeah I checked all the bearings and re-greased them - none of them were grinding or looked worn/bad. I just hope the fix worked! As a side note, This is the third time my sprocket nut has been super loose so i need threadlock and really torque her down.So far, so good Brandon. How about the wheel bearings, steering neck, and swing arm bearings? Hopefully you'll never be this deep in the bike ever again.
Off this topic, did you get the platform you wanted? Did SERE s*ck As much as I think it did? <img src="Racing" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
I'll try that first. Would be a shame to have to replace the clamps but if that's what it is I wont hesitate.One of the clamps are bent.....
Alignment, only the lower is tight, axle, fender, anything else is loose....... Grab a fistfull of front brake and force the front to compress all the way multiple times?
If you didn't align the forks by the method I have described, they're not aligned. Hope it will work out for you.I'll try that first. Would be a shame to have to replace the clamps but if that's what it is I wont hesitate.
Once I fixed the fork caps and did my oil flush job, I sprung the front for my weight. I believe the rear was good to go for my weight already, but I plan on checking again after my tire change.<golf clapping>
Brandon, I don't recall if you re-sprung the bike for your weight...... Well worth the money. Imho the second best mod you can make.
Commutter for the time being, hoping to get on the track once I have the time to do so. I went with the 05 throttle because my old throttle assembly spun on the bar and the 05 was external to the starter assembly. The 05 cable is slightly longer so I had to use rubber washers as spacers but it functions way better than my old assembly did and is much more solid too.Very cool! Track bike or commuter bike? i have a J2 (2001). They share a ton of parts. I did block off plates, jet kit and timing advancer! Why did you go with the 05 throttle cables and tube? shorter throw?
