  1. At least the valves don't need to be adjusted yet.
  2. So With my new ricks stator and stock/original regulator I'm getting 14.3 volts at idle and it drops off to 13.7 as rpms increase. Holds at 13.7 even while using heated gear. I'm thinking of replacing with a mosfet regulator. I have a '97 xx. Recommendations for brand?
  3. OK so new bearings in. Putting stuff back together. Get the forks in and am getting ready to tighten the pinch bolts and I say to myself, "Gee, when did they start putting inspection stickers on the inside of the forks.....fuck."
  4. Upper bearing race not an issue. How do I remove the bottom without special tool)
  5. Went back through my old conversations. Heres one from 13 years ago. I'll make something that will work based on this. Skip, You're more than welcome to borrow the tool. Are you changing out the bearings and races? I also made a rig to press in the new races. It's a piece of 1/2" threaded rod about 15" long with two nuts and washers. Use your old races and two large sockets and tighten the nuts to press in the races. It works great. If you look in the Honda manual they sell a tool that presses the bearings which I based mine off of. Just their's is much prettier... mine was f
  6. Anyone have either the homemade variety (Or steps to make one) or the spendy honda version they would be willing to lend me? I'm trustworthy and honest and have never been arrested. Well, 2 out of 3.
  7. Braking hardware, axle nut and pinchbolts all fine. With front end suspended there is a slight movement form front to back if I pull and push the front wheel. very slight but its there. I bought the bike with 40000 miles and it now has 128000 miles. Never replacedd the steering head bearings on this one but did on my last.
  8. So took the bird out for a few hundred miles today. Had fun. Got back and was heading to the gym when I felt a clunk from the front end. I;m not sure if the handling feels a bit heavier. At a standstill bars move freely right and left. Once moving in a straight line.no play at all when trying to wiggle bars back and forth. Have the front end off the ground now. Noticable detente dead center. Other than that no slop no play. Just put new front wheels bearings in a few weeks ago. It just felt weird. Checking frame to make sure nothing farged. Any ideas? Gremlins? Biden?
  9. Title says it. Scratched ok. Prefer no cracks. Thanks!

    Bearing had been in the ocean a few times. I go to the OBX every year. As the saying goes...rte12 one road in, one road out, sometimes. Saltwater at the S curves around Rodanthe is a common thing depending on tide and winds. Sometimes there’s no choice.

    Noise while riding. Was feeling a bit of a tick when throwing the bike through some corners the last couple of days. Then some louder ticking I could feel even more. The round metal circles on the rotor opposite side of bad bearing started rubbing against something. Not quite sure what. It was suprising though. No wobbles. decelerate with hands off bars no wobbles and bike stayed on track. Weird.

    On top of the stator I just replaced. I would ask the question but am afraid of the answer.

    I think the bearing might have an issue.
