General Discussion / scan tool question abs
« Last post by lucian on Today at 06:00:23 AM »
Can anyone recommend a mc scan tool with abs diagnostic /bleed functions?  I have researched the TR offerings but am pretty sure  it wont do abs diag.

TIA    Dave
How much is too much?

Oh, and Windex instead of soapy water. I don't know why it works better than anything else (in this instance) but it does.

Another vote for Windex.  It's also a great hand cleaner.  As for psi, my garage air compressor only goes up to about 50 psi and I've had to use our considerably more powerful compressor at work a few tomes.  Scared me a bit but did work.  Figured I really didn't have another option.

My apologies for not getting it right.
The rough surface of the cast alloys on my LM2 make tyre fitting a real pig of a job, not helped by narrow and rigid (Sport Demon) tyres.

I do my own changes but had to take one to my local bike shop last year as I was at danger of serious breakage/injury, it stalled his motorised changer and needed 2 people to assist it.

I now get the tyre as warm as possible and use loads of tyre soap but it's still a major ball-ache, both the removing the old (probably easier to cut it off?) and fitting the new. Seating the beads is a royal PITA too, I needed 100psi+ to get one to seat correctly and even then it didn't pop into place, rather slowly eased in.

Contrast that with modern tyres; I've fitted a rear to my 916 using just cable ties and my hands, but everything is in my favour there with a smooth wheel and soft, flexible tyre which is wide enough to deform to get it onto the rim.

That's me. Huffing & puffing on crutches. I'm too old for this. Crashing is a young bouncy person's game.

I hurt, by the way.  :laugh:

I'll take one, but with the 750 engine in street tune, and a four gallon tank.

Wow! Amazing! Shifting a right side tank shifter with the left hand! Grider fork and hardtail!
Thanks for the link.
General Discussion / Re: Re-seating tire after tube change, how much pressure is OK?
« Last post by redhawk47 on September 18, 2018, 11:13:48 PM »
After the bead seats I let all of the air pressure out and then re-inflate the tire. My theory is that there are un-even stresses from the bead seating stretching and releasing the pressure lets them even out. Just my theory, don't know if it is true. But it makes me feel better.
