  1. Do you have a radiator protector? The securing wires on mine worked loose and it rattled annoyingly beween 2500 and 3500 RPM until I tightened them up.
  2. The bits were stuck in one of the hoses... never got enough bits to make me think I got them all though .
  3. Dunno... normal antifreeze mix and the engine started running HOT and none of the diagnostics found anything - even flow tested the rad. Pulled the water pump and found most of it missing
  4. I had the water pump on my '97 fail in about 2008 - all the impeller blades had broken off. Since then I had the replacement pump seals fail... current one seems ok and the bike is on 155,000 km -ish
  5. I run 16 front 44 rear and the chain is 108 links Works great for my needs at 1700m above sea level - power wheelies in 1st no problem. DO you allready have a speedohealer?
  6. as long as he doesn't pull a Clinton and debate the meaning of the word "is"
  7. heh... I'm a Virgo, and we Vorgoans don't believe in that horoscope bullshit. Almost as bad as religion.
  8. One of the mods should change his title to "board Rambo"
  9. You can remove the front lens of the headlamp, fit the projctor units in the sockets for the H7 bulbs, and reseal. There are a couple of Youtube tutorials on this process and they seem to be effective (altho the ones I watched were for HID projectors I doubt there is any functional difference in the process) and you use the normal lamp adjustment wheels to direct the beams where you need them.
  10. Or a hose clamp might be loose enough that a tiny weep gets past when cold but swells up enough to seal when hot. Stranger shit happens...
  11. Look at the caliper slider pins sometime. Those get gunk ed up and that causes the caliper to stick, preventing it from keeping the disk central and balanced between the pads
  12. My '97 pops up on an energetic gearchange 1st to 2nd, and will come up with a tug on the bars. And thats at 1700m above sea level. I reckon that a trip to the coast is warranted now
  13. my '97 has been well used, the plastics have been replaced twice due to my abundant lack of riding talent, and with 230.000 km its still on the original clutch. Given that all maintenance has been done by my fumbly fingers over the last 200.000km plus, I would say that age is NOT an issue. The XX is reliable as a hammer
