Yeah. I'll get either Galfer or Fren - which ever is cheapest.

That is likely where I'll go. Bought a chain and sprockets from them last week and their prices beat everyone by a long shot.

Complaints about how the board is moderated are taken very seriously.




Those who continue to complain will be handled accordingly.

New Road 5 spooned on, easy peasy.

The front sprocket has 31k on it and beginning to exhibit slight hooking, so replaced with a fresh OEM 16t and new tabbed washer. Wondering if I'll hear the difference between having the rubber dampeners back on there from the non-OEM gear. I'm guessing not.

Continuing cleaning. Is there supposed to be a splash sheild here? Looks like mounting tabs and seems like a place there would be one.

From Pat's hugger install.

Would seem like a good thing to have when stuff is coming off the rear wheel.

You're right. I just chose to pick on you. You related to the Breeze or Bigarmz or hunterscout?

Yesterday got the swing arm and shock back in. Pretty happy with everything so far. No evidence of anything ever leaking, the crud seems to be mostly rubber and dirt. Bearings in the rear wheel seem good, but the seals need to be replaced so I ordered up a set. Also had to order up a few more cans of magic cleaning spray (WD-40) so that I can continue buttoning up the back end. Decided to just leave the brakes off until I get some lines and decide if I should rebuild the calipers or just leave them alone.

Today my 6mm allen wrench with big handle arrived, which I used to try to remove the main gas tank bolt (it is VERY stuck. maybe the last owner used Loctite on it or something?) in order to lift the gas tank. Instead, I stripped the screw. I then used a strew stripper tool to try to remove the bolt. I forgot cover the tank with a cloth or something though, and immediately shaved off a quarter sized spot of paint on the tank. I have now ordered touch-up paint, and am calling it a night.

The bolt remains in place.

An allen socket with a wobble and extension makes it a lot easier to get a straight shot at that bolt. Before you do anything else, spray a bunch of penetrating oil around it. Then use a phillips screwdriver or a punch in the middle of it and bang the end with a hammer a couple times. Since the head of the bolt is round you may be able to get a hold of it with a bolt extractor

Use the penetrating oil such as PB Blaster at least a few hours before trying to remove. If you have a soldering iron, use it to heat up the bolt just before trying to remove it. Loctite, if present, succumbs to heat very well.

I also recommend using some low strength Loctite upon reinstall. Loctite 222, which is somewhat purple, and low strength. Just right for keeping vibration prone screws in place, while being easily serviceable.

Iiiiinteresting!! Thank you for the tips Jeep! I am the least handy person I know, so I haven't heard of a wobble and extension, but will check them out! And those bolt grips look very handy! I'll pick up a set and give it a go.

I appreciate this information as well! I don't have a smoldering iron but will try some penetrating oil. And that's good to know regarding the tank screw being vibration prone; at least there's a decent reason for it being locked the heck down like it is.
