  1. Interesting. I know a bit about computers but usually enough to get myself in trouble. Why is it that on my pc I can see the schematic image but you can't?
  2. I just copy/pasted the image, ignore the red crap. On the left hand side below where it says " blue tape " there is " crankcase breather tube "' Is that pinched where it comes out of the valve cover restricting air flow? This would cause a buildup of crankcase pressure.
  3. In the second photo, you can see the white wires coming out of the red block then going into the black sheath. I would make sure that area inside the black sheath is absolutely clean then put some oil compatible sealant into the sheath sealing the wires. The sealant will probably have to be quite thin to flow into and around the wires. Perhaps something like this is available in Spain?
  4. Was going to say a very Canadian blue 'bird colour! 😀
  5. There's quite a few others out there. Weirdly enough, some claim drying super hard gives it greater strength while others claim drying to a flexible film means it will never crack and peel. Which one is better? You decide. There are single component and multi component epoxies . https://www.dimecitycycles.com/red-kote-fuel-tank-sealer-liner.html https://www.caswellcanada.ca/epoxy-gas-tank-sealer.html https://www.aircraftspruce.ca/catalog/appages/gastanksealer.php?msclkid=af3911961a021df71bf34f5492c0a093&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign
  6.

  7. Whole lot cheaper.
  8. Absolutely they're accurate but you just have to follow the rules when using them. You can use it straight out but you'll have to calculate how much less input torque you'll need as your moment arm will be longer. I have a near complete set of these for work and quite often there is nothing else that will fit in where you need to go.
  9. Ha! Had to do this exact field repair on my FJ1200 in a hotel parking lot on a multi-week trip. Absolutely could not get the connector apart.
  10. Following this thread a bit. I don't shoot but I find it interesting. I decided to look up the prices of the Norma ammo.........crap! You're approaching 50BMG price territory! All the reviews I saw called the Norma round an excellent round but rare. Did it just not catch on?
  11. Make your own oring. https://www.mcmaster.com/o-ring-splicing-kits/ This is McMaster Carr but lots of other kits out there. Would this sealant work? https://www.permatex.com/products/gasketing/gasket-sealants/permatex-permashield-fuel-resistant-gasket-dressing-flange-sealant/
  12. I'm just wondering out loud here but does anyone by chance know if a CBRXX engine will fit in a Honda 919 Hornet frame? 😁
  13. Wasn't there a case of Suzuki setting the clearance too tight on their GSXR 750 ( I think ) in the mid 90's? Most people never knew but the ones who spent some time at redline had pistons kissing cyl head. Cost Suzuki a lot of labour and thicker head gaskets.
  14. I`d also recommend disconnecting the negative lead from the battery and hooking up a meter in series to measure amperage drain. Or milliamps. DON'T turn the key on, just do it with the key off. That will tell you if you have a component or wire going to ground. If you do have a short, pull and replace 1 fuse at a time until the meter drops to zero. That will tell you which system to start looking at.
