Or just buy the thumb screw type
No way! Where is the joy of tinkering in that?Or just buy the thumb screw type
1 Found your other post 8 months ago. Still leaking? There must be something you can put between the seal and sleeve. Hylomar maybe?1 there is a leak of oil from behind the front sprocket. I changed oil seal once, didnt help, than i blamed the sleeve and took it of, (definetelly scratched it all because it sits on the shaft tight and theres no rubber O ring) than ordered new from a dealer that wouldnt fit, machinned it, fitted it, changed seal over it, still leaks, less but still does. I wonder what might be another reason ? Can the shaft be off balanced or somthing ?
2 I know my bike was probably sitting some time in the garage, so it needs carb cleaning. It would get hot after 30 mins of riding and then stall, and wont run until cools down. But before that it would loose its power and run on one cilinder or somthing, I would give it more throttle and it would unstuck and be ok for another 5 minutes and then not respond on the throttle, and stall completely. My guess it overheats, i suspect the fan isnt starting, need to check this one. (I didnt change the coolant yet).
Thank you ! Carbs will need to be synchronized after cleaning1 Found your other post 8 months ago. Still leaking? There must be something you can put between the seal and sleeve. Hylomar maybe?
2 Check coolant level first (in reservoire tank and at the radiator cap). If its ok, move on the carbs. If not, check fan switch, fan working, temperature light switch and thermostat (or just remove the thermostat)! I had a blown head gasket because all of these failed. I see you got the manual. There are testing methods for these parts.
At the carbs most important are the carb to head boots. Check for vacuum leak (put this in youtube for a how to video). If its ok, check the air filter (mine was in pieces). If its ok start cleaning the carbs, also clean all fuel filters.
Thank yoy ! Ontario, North Yorkhow do you know its too hot? temp light? you can test fan by putting a direct wire from battery to pos wire on fan to see if it comes on, the switch can be tested by bridging the terminals i believe, it could be coils breaking down or the crank sensor on lower right side of engine, these breakdown when hot then work when cooled down, also if carbs are gummed it could be running lean due to blocked jets or lack of flow from tank when hot and fuel is vaporising, or tank vent blocked etc, where in canada are you?
Second, the head bolts can be reused! Any more confirmation on this would be great. Dont want to break the bolts or the threads.Ok, wrench on the way to me, i will get it in the afternoon.
Meanwhile, i was looking for alternative sources for head gasket. It is around 80 pounds from the UK. Desperately, contacted the hungarian dealer, he was also surprised how expensive it is for this model. Price is well over 100 pounds.
So called one of the manufactures making head gaskets based on samples. Initial price is around 20 pounds.
Anyone has experience with non Tutuapp 9Apps ShowBox OEM Triumph head gaskets? Are they any good? Any known alternative source with quality confirmation?
