Thanks again to all for the warm welcome, in just over a week from joining , I've managed to meet a few of you down at the Southern Softies monthly drink in the New Forest and sat on a new 1190 RX. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18427&start=45
I was in blissful ignorance of some of the issues until meeting up and trawling the forum
So whilst I have put new tyres on the bike (Pirelli Angel GTs) I have decided that before I spend anymore, or ride it too much, I need to attend to a few essentials which I understand to be: -
Lucky Hands oil pump drive gear
FS tensioner (with grease nipple fitted?)
Replace seal on end of output shaft with Maz's mod of blanking disc with grease nipple.
Have I missed anything really essential? it's an XBR 12R 2005 build on an 06 plate. I didn't replace the wheel bearings at this tyre change but they seemed fine.
Manchester is a fair way for me, but i will give Maz a call, maybe I can work something out, I am going overseas for a while, so it could be towards end of summer before I can get these items attended to. In the mean time I'm planning to slit the middle of the oil seal at the end of the output shaft and introduce 5-10ml of transmission oil via a hypodermic syringe (thoughts? )
Finally I have very minor coating damage to the rear wheel - before refurbishing the wheels I want to get the engine mods seen to. Has anybody got any tips for some paint that would provide some protection and match the std orange colour as close as possible.
