The RS is calling you....ride me ride me. Throw your legs over my little waist, and twist my throttle, i will show you a good time..🤣👍And all I know is right now I just want to get back on the road. I've missed all of this riding season so far waiting on new tires, then interrupted with the emergency hernia surgery, the fuel pump, and now waiting on new connectors. I am ready to get back to knees in the breeze
be careful the brass bristles don't break off and go inside the fuel connectors.Small update on this, seems like I'm never going to get back on 2 wheels.
But I got the fuel fittings in and of course the old ones kinda disintegrated when trying to remover them. Well one came out clean and the other not so. Threads all filled up with gunk and no matter what I tried I couldn't get it cleaned out. I saw in here that it was a 1/4 BPST .
Oh boy I knew that would be a challenge but I went out the next day and started with my general suppliers and they all pointed me to this place in town called Technology sales (Home - TechSales). Called them and they did some digging and she called me back and said how many do you want? Apparently they had a bunch of them in stock. Went and picked up the tap, $40
The threads were so full of crap I couldn't even get the tap started. Next day I went out to Lowes and picked up some brass wire brushes for my rotary tool (I have burnt up too many Dremals so I use a Milwaukee rotary tool). Any way the brass wire wheel didn't quite fit in the hole but it did wear down and fit in there and cleaned the threads perfect. I ran the tap through it just to make sure and damn if it didn't work out perfect.
Bought the new fuel line last night and hope to get it all back together tonight. BTW used yellow teflon tape on the threads.
Short note the brass wire wheel on the rotary tool is perfect for cleaning out these threads. Probably could have done it without the $40 tap but there it is.
