Re: Cleaning tank sealer

use an old petcock and gas cap to seal it. Do it right and it won't leak.

Re: Cleaning tank sealer

I have put kerosene and other fluids that are not real explosive and a hand full of nuts and bolts then cap it off real good. Put it in the trunk of your car and take it to work with you. Turn it...

Re: T140 carb manifold swappapalooza

Mikuni has infinite amount of adjustments and you can change main jets in min. I ran two 34MM Mikuni carbs on a Yamaha 650 and they worked great. The only reason for Amal is to keep it OEM.

Mikuni says to install the largest carb that will fit and then jet accordingly.

Re: 68’ T120 with a CB350 front end.

I put a sporster front end on my sons 69 TR6. Turned sliders smooth and welded a tab on the right one for the Triumph hub and brake. Makes for a clean front end and no worry about finding parts. Why...

Re: My 73 Triumph build

How come no "head steadys"? Triumphs have a 120 degree crank and are known for being shakers. Also, why just one carb? I would have put a couple of 34MM mikunies on a 750.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

That's a lot of work to get HD bearings on the neck. I have a 68 TR6 and have a sporty front end on it. I machined off the brake and fender tabs and welded a tab on the right leg to fit the Triumph...

Re: Harley big twins? WTF is a "little twin'? (novel)

Re: Panel Beaters Pan

Re: 41mm Wideglide Axle spacer dims

Don't know about your setup but my 2001FXDWG has spacers that are not the same dia. wide. How about centering the wheel then measure the distance from bearing to leg on both sides.

Re: Got a miss

if you really want to rum without baffles, put in the next biggest jet. by taking out the baffles you let more air through. more air needs more fuel.

Re: Alternator in place of generator?

If you need a batt but not much space, lithium 4 cell is 12 V. check out Antigravity batteries.

Re: What could be cause these grooves on a break disc

take your rotor to a machine shop and have all the holes counter sunk. I just bet they have sharp edges on the holes. These are production disc. Takes to long to take the edges off the holes.

Re: Panhead compression... still chasing potential problems..

Find a guy at your local airport that is a mech. They use leak down tester. They put in 70 lbs and see how much stays in and you can see where the difference goes. Used one for 30 years.

Re: battery only at 12. volts

I keep a battery tender on my bike. Even if it is only going to sit overnight. 3 to 5 years is average for a bike battery. I usually get 6 to 7 yrs out of mine.
