Re: Car wash in the winter, yay or nay

I made too many assumptions based on my limited understanding of CV grease.

Re: Car wash in the winter, yay or nay

I was hoping the lead compounds and molybdenum wouldn’t wash off or cause any environmental issues. I am sadly disappointed :hmm:

Replaced the front right brake caliper just because the one on the car was the factory original.

Re: Axle Surface Rust at Sealing Surface

I soaked the axle in Evapo-rust. It seems to work very well.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

It’s not physically the same gauge I used last time, but the same manufacturer and type.
Last checks were 47psi as tested 2-6-‘12 and 8-22-‘13.
Today, the pressure did not hold all that long after...

I think I will store it for later.


That is exactly what I’ll do. I’ve had good fortune locally.

OK, thanks!
What made me stop was the rust in the splines that go into the oil bath inside the MP3. That surface rust will fret, circulate and wear the needle bearings.

Re: Axle Surface Rust at Sealing Surface

Thanks, but I did what OldNuc recommended. Initial results were hopeful. I never woulda thunk it!
Tomorrow, I will spin it on the lathe and use emery paper.

Re: New Washers for Used Spark Plugs?

As usual, you’re correct. I looked in a dirtbike owner’s manual and it agrees.

Thank you—of course. I’ve bought from them before. (Specialty factory spark plugs for someone’s tempermental RM250)

Re: S-Series Owner's Manuals 2nd/3rd Gen LOT

Just a note. IF you’re one to keep hand written maintenance records, your owner’s manual’s maintenance section is full. I’d be willing to bet there’s not a mark written in these. :cake:
