i,d keep it, barely noticeable
Bars on floor = anxietyburger...
Its on the wooden area of the floor and the engine is bare, so not much weight. You'll be just fine.Oh, shit. You can't imagine.
Just wait until I get the bike back.
Drove over 800 miles yesterday.
Got my fucking bike back home!!!
Need some time to recover. Details and pics, soon.
I couldn't wait (an estimated) 18 months for a COVID-19 vaccine. I hear about people like me, with terminal illnesses, dying from CV, but I don't hear about the number of people with terminal illnesses that are CV+ and survive.
I'm going to be one of the survivors. You can bet on it.
One option may be to install a helicoil. You'll have to drill a 7mm hole to install a 5mm heli, so you got the meat to here. Easier than sourcing custom hardware.Been trying to design a mounting technique for the front reservoir.
Got all the horizontal parts at about 8mm OD and centered in-line with the outlet tubing.
Problem is the vertical eyebolt thread of 5mm. The reservoir has a 6mm thread.
Since my local machine shop is gone, I checked in with Mike at DBD. He's done my machine work that the local shop wouldn't or couldn't do. Bad news! His shop is closed down at least until Spring, because he's moving to a new home.
Need a custom 6mm eye bolt, or an adapter machined from 8mm OD stainless rod, with female 5mm threads and male 6mm threads. No idea who will make small custom parts for me at this time.
Post up, or PM me, if you have any ideas.
I appreciate the idea.At this moment I'd just fab it myself. Takes one or two hours, and you only need a welding machine and a drill to get your part done.
An M6 threaded rod and the socket / hexagonal head of a larger bolt, center drilled.
After drilling the hexagonal piece you put a bolt in it, then you put the bolt the in the drill chuck and spin it against a file to make it round...like a poor man's lathe. Then weld the round part to the threaded rod, finish it with tiny files and sandpaper, buff it out if you want.
