Re: Exhaust leaks

Over here (UK) we have an exhaust joint sealant stuff called GunGum, don't know if you have that or similar in US – also found in exhaust repair kits – softens with water to a paste, then dries to almost like cement when hot. I usually needed it to fix a loose joint on my Moto guzzi for the MOT test.

I've never had an issue with overheating, and don't worry about it.

My feet can usually tell me if it's getting really hot. :D

Re: Relive the ground off light switch.

OK after further reflection, I think I didn't explain fully at the outset. My personal belief is that a repair to the existing, as described, is fruitless, it will always break. Get an intact (uncut) replacement, or a different solution.

Re: Carbon build-up after throttle butterfly

Like Van said, there was a reason they vented the PCV through the box, unfortunately he didn't stick around long enough to tell us why... Because we're not allowed to drop oil onto the roads anymore. :D So it's redirected to the inlets so it can be burnt. I think in California it came in in around ...

Re: Relive the ground off light switch.

If you noticed, this thread is about making the existing switch work. Comments that translate to "don't try to fix the existing switch, just add another" go against the initial post. If the thread was "how can I de-activate my lights" cool, add another switch. I have a personal peeve against the pe...

Re: My Dnepr MT-11 Story

What I like about those is your strongest fingers have maximum leverage on the ends of the levers. I can only imagine they were turned around because that was easier to make (and much less complicated cable routing).

Re: Carbon build-up after throttle butterfly

I was getting this quite heavily, enough that it fouled and ruined one of my MAP sensors. I rerouted my engine breather to vent to atmosphere, instead of the airbox, and I noticed a less accumulation. What appears now, I suspect, is blowback from the intake. I've seen this on cars too. My old R80 h...

Re: Warning, Will Robinsonski

Ditto. No difference whatsoever. (Altho I didn't disconnected battery, I unplugged the ignition switch in this case.) My point was, there's permanently live wires going into the ECU's, so caution required in terms of what Voltage you put on the battery even if ign switched off, possibly. That was all.
