The o-ring inside the fittings on the fuel tank were dead. Looks like buna-n deteriorates enough to weld itself together when living in a petroleum bath that’s slowly turning into turpentine for 6 years... figure viton is in order.

Bought new male and female fittings (90 FUCKING DOLLARS !... luckily I sold an old Chevy 350 that I’ve had in the garage for over a decade so had some extra cash) and started installing them.

Once I get back out there I can finish those and mount the tank. Next task will be the coolant overflow so I can flush the cooling system.

Soon... soon... maybe my license plate will get here before it’s ready to ride

Those metal connectors are ridiculously expensive but way better than the plastic ones you're always afraid to snap when taking the tank off... Had to put new plastics on mine as I couldn't get the metal ones anywhere without ordering 100 each. Even those were IIRC 70 ish eur.

Only oil and brake flush and fill is left.

...But the oil pressure light is on. 1st step is unplug and see if it’s a short. The sensor apparently closes the circuit to ground, so it could just be stuck after sitting for years. If the light goes out when I unplug it, I’ll remove the sensor and clean it in the hope that it’s just stuck. It’s just a banjo bolt with a sensor, so if the holes are obstructed or gummed up, it could prevent the pressure from getting to the sensor ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Ordering another so it’s already on the way in case I need it :/ The pump wouldn’t have gone bad just sitting, but an oil pickup or galley could be clogged leading to a pressure problem.

Yeah... I'm a fucking idiot. It's the check engine light.



Since I was in there, I verified the oil light works by grounding it's to the case to make sure it comes on.


While looking at the oil pressure sensor I did find another very broken vacuum line.


Since I can't sleep through a night anymore, I went out to the garage this morning and replaced that vacuum line and hooked up the laptop to see what the CEL was for. Misfire and IAT sensor circuit open (it was unplugged, so that makes sense :p ).


Coolant flush was done Sunday.
Sorted the "oil pressure problem"
Vacuum line repaired.


Now just have to put shit together again and do a few maintenance bits.
Thinking I may see if any of my old air box clamps from previous bikes will work to seal the air box to the TB's better. All the foolin with coolin on Sunday basically had the air box just sitting on the TB's.



Wonder if I could mod the air box with a set of pod filters so I could have the pod's hose clamps to seal against the TB's without losing too much of the benefit of the air box...

Ah the famous triumph "warning about fucking everything" light, more lit than not and you need a confuser to check what it's for this time.

Other
[] Coolant reservoir (need some brass fittings, a stopper/cap, a way to mount it)
[] Coolant flush and fill

[..] Spark plug check
[] Finish the 4ga ground strap
Few bits to add to the list after a few quick rides.

[..] Tune [Runs rich... my vin/engine number indicate that it is an early 98 before they changed the cam(s). I think I'm running the late 98 tune...]
[..] Airbox [boots keep coming off the throttle bodies. When the bike was new there was a bracket at the front of the airbox that fixed it in place over the valve cover. Mine apparently broke off at some point. I'm guessing by some asshat that just yanked the airbox off rather than fish an extension under it to remove the screw. I'm betting with that bracket in place the tank would push the airbox down sufficiently to keep the seal.]
[..] Front fender [Shits rubbing real bad but the gap looks sufficient... maybe I left some tube taped under it when I was test fitting things...]
[..] Throttle tube [The r6 throttle is way too twitchy for me. Swapping the stock one back. I really don't need WOT anyway, I hardly ever ride on the highway]

You ever work on something on an off for a couple years and end up hating it?

I dunno wtf my problem is, but now that it's on the road it feels... wrong.
