Re: Proper Oil pressure for Dnepr MT9?

Sorry for not getting back sooner. You know, Christmas, hospital visit for surprise abdominal surgery, the usual. And thank you for the oil pressure information. Managed to get another engineer's appointment, at which point he told me that he also wanted the seat moved back 40mm, and one of the rear...

Re: Proper Oil pressure for Dnepr MT9?

Well, got the gauge and had a measure. That was interesting. First, a little background. The reason for this will become apparent later. (Flashback) The PO (previous owner, I believe?) at some point tried to convert it to 12V, but quit part way through. I reverted it back, by getting some parts and ...

Proper Oil pressure for Dnepr MT9?

Does anyone know what the oil pressure should be for a Dnepr MT9? And at different engine speeds? I was about to take my restoration to the engineer's for approval, and found my oil-light lighting up when accelerating and at road-speeds, but no problem at idle / low revs. I'm buying a gauge to check...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

Update Time! The clutch plates were in backwards. I found a You Tube of someone taking a K650 clutch apart and paid VERY careful attention. Ordered some new plates, waited very patiently and totally DIDN'T check the parcel tracking twice a day every day for weeks, despite what lying liars who are ly...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

Oh, what the fark?! I am going to hunt down and kill whoever the arsehole was who had this bike before me! :machinegun: Some of his innovative solutions were amusing, like how he had decided to convert it to 12V, so he put in a car alternator, and hooked it up to the gears using a bit of garden hose...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

A can of silver spray paint and a star stamp will run about $10, to some questionable sellers, that would constitute a "Rebuild" and upgrade. This is true, but there comes a time when you've just got to trust your supplier. I dropped one or two who I didn't, but I like Magnus . He's given me no rea...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

Don't remember. I'm thinking about it, and when it's in gear, but the clutch is pulled, is the only time when the engine-side and gearbox-side parts of the clutch are moving at different speeds to each other. When the clutch is released, then they're obviously joined and moving together, and when it...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

No supposed to. Assuming you have a manual adv-retard control? When starting you want to retard the ign timing. OK, retard then. All I know is I'm supposed to need to pull the little lever to change the timing for starting, but she don't like that. She don't like that at all. That lever is to stay ...

Re: Grinding noise in gear

We're in the middle of the kids' quiet time, before we put them to bed, when it suddenly hits me that if the bike is in gear, the clutch is pulled in, and the bike is stationary, then the gears are locked to the wheel, and nothing inside the gearbox is moving . It couldn't be the gearbox! It couldn'...

Grinding noise in gear

OK, I've been restoring this old bike, nearly finished. One of the things done is a NOS (New Old Stock, ie original but unused) MT-9 gearbox with a little star on it that my supplier told me meant it was originally meant for the soviet army (anyone know if that's true, or he's just spinning me $#!+?...
