Re: 55,000 KM Donut

Simple Green has a pH of 9.0 (+/- 0.5) which means it is extremely alkaline. That's why it is a good cleaner. Unfortunately, leaving it on metal is worse than leaving sea water (pH 8.0) on the metal. I'd rinse the donut out well or, if you don't want to disassemble again, spray the center and drive ...

Re: Uralcamping ...

CharlieT (UralCT on the forum) lives in Texas and went all over the US - Maine, California, Washington, Florida - pulling a monopod trailer with his Patrol. He was fully loaded, too, carrying enough spare parts to build himself another bike. And he did it mostly on the interstates! Before any of you...

Re: upgradeable items common to all years?

About the tin - I was looking at repainting some of the tin and found Terry Crawford had a great stock of new and used fenders, tanks, etc for less than I could get stuff finished and painted. Seems wasteful, but that's body shop pricing these days. This is a minor one, but you can change out the dr...

Infrequently you may find one of these cropping up:

And Van actually made one from scratch. It may seem strange, but it's pretty easy to take off the normal sidecar body. One person can easily do it.

Re: Replacing Paioli and Marzocchi Telescoping Fork Seals

The 2004 Troyka actually came with Russian telescoping forks, which I swapped for the Paiolis when some came available. I think IMZ moved to Marzocchi in 2006 or so. There is essentially zero information on the Paiolis out there. I asked Jason at IMZ and he only had a parts list. A pretty thorough w...

Re: Replacing Paioli and Marzocchi Telescoping Fork Seals

This is the old seal removed. 17. Seal Removed.jpg Clean up everything in the bottom tube of the leg, lubricate the new seal on the inside lips and the outside to ease installation. Ariete supplies their own seal lubricant for the lips. It looks and feels like white silicone grease. For the outside ...

Re: Replacing Paioli and Marzocchi Telescoping Fork Seals

These are the seals for the 36mm Paiolis. They take a 36x48x11 seal and a 36mm dust cover. The Ariete seals come with their own "special sauce" lubricant that they recommend for the seal lips. 12. New Seals & Dust Caps.jpg This is a view of the old dust cap, the wire keeper below it, and the sea...

Re: Replacing Paioli and Marzocchi Telescoping Fork Seals

Now take off the brake caliper. You can leave it attached to the brake line, just rest it over on top of the right cylinder. 6. Caliper.jpg Now remove the fork cap screws from the top of the forks. Note the o-rings at the top of the threads. If the o-rings are cut or scraped you should replace them....
