Re: BURP 2019

By the way, how come we don't rate a mention in the 'What's Happening' section of the Willville website? Is he embarrassed by us...? :o

Re: CRAP Final Plan

Sorry, I'm out this year. One of the nieces is getting married that weekend.
Looking forward to the after action report, with pictures and video!

Re: CRAP RALLY 4-6 May 2018 Asheboro NC

Bill - I'm coming. 1 man and the Ural, tent camping. Planning to come Friday morning. Do we have to call the campground for a reservation if we're tenting?

I'll be bringing a Baltika assortment, no problem to help with other stuff, just let me know.

See you soon!

Re: FART 2017

Good to hear, I thought it was just a metric nut but didn't want to insert foot if it wasn't. Glad you can still make it. Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk Me too :D Yep, M8 1.0 fine thread. Turns out it was the adjuster that was buggered (threads looked messed up). Replaced that with my spar...

Re: Valve adjuster and locknut

I guess I was lucky. I got a new nut (M8 1.0 Fine thread) and tried that, but it did the same thing with the adjuster. I screwed out the old adjuster and found some of the threads looked buggered (flat and showing bright metal). I replaced it with my spare adjuster and the new nut, and that seemed t...

Re: FART 2017

If it's something you have to order, can you still make FART? Sent from my Moto G Play using Tapatalk I think I'll be ok. Took the adjuster to O-Reillys and it looks like an M8-1.0 nut fits it, so after I eat a quick lunch it'll be back to the garage to work on it. I should be there. Either trailer...

Re: FART 2017

Yes, I did that just now. Only posted here to keep my fellow FART attendees informed. Sometimes people can bring along parts or expertise to the rallies. We don't see it much lately but earlier rallies involved a bit more wrenching and it was common for someone to drag in a non-functional bike and h...

Valve adjuster and locknut

Hello, 750CC Tourist issue here: I'm adjusting the valves prior to the FART, and discovered that on the left side intake valve, I can adjust the clearance, but when I sung up the locknut it doesn't tighten fast against the rocker arm. IT just keeps turning, and as a consequence turns the adjuster ou...

Re: FART 2017

Grrrr. Possible mechanical issue. Adjusting the valves and it seems there is an issue with the adjuster or locknut. I can get the clearance ok, but when I turn down the locknut, it doesn't snug up against the rocker arm - it just spins, but also pulls the adjuster towards it - so the clearance opens...

Re: FART 2017

did the dates move? I had Oct 6,7,8 penciled in. Anyway, no problem on Oct 13-15 for me, I'm planning to attend and call for reservations later today. The dates did get bumped to the second weekend Mark. It was always the first weekend. Can't remember why though unless it had something to do with G...
