There's a few Rallies coming up, Ohio & Kentucky, are you thinking of riding the G5 to them ?
Thanks for posting Chuck. This is very useful (practical) maintenance information.Mike
Chuck: What's your position on using dielectric grease? I read a bunch of recent and very interesting threads here on this forum about it's use, and your attention to the elec connections makes me think they would be a good candidate for it's use.My Cal 2 is about at the same stage as your G5 right now, and I think I'm going to apply it after a quick spritz with contact cleaner.
When I carried out my LM2 refurb I had the wiring loom off the bike. After cleaning every last inch of every wire, connector and component and removing any corrosion I Silicone greased (dielectric) every connection on the bike. I've never had a problem since doing this. As for it being an insulator, well of course it is, who would use conducting grease?Its the metal to metal contact that provides the electrical connection, the grease prevents moisture or water getting to the contact.
Crimp that sucker on there..2018-08-11_11-34-53 by Charles Stottlemyer, on Flickr
I'm surprised to see that you use the insulated, single crimp type terminals. I figured a perfectionist like you would only use the double crimp, strain relief type.
Does it still rain in Indiana???
I'm having fun following along Chuck. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Joe.. that's about it.Oh, forgot.. when it gets hot, the clutch is grabby. I may look into that.
Sometimes, you *do* get the bear. The Previous Owner told me about the clutch problem. I thought, probably the transmission input hub. Oh well, the price reflected the problem..Had a look this morning, and the spring behind the clutch actuating arm was off it's pin, but trapped behind the arm. <scratching head> No pix, I couldn't get my phone in there to take one. At any rate, fixed that, adjusted the arm.. that is a fussy adjustment. One turn makes a lot of difference.. adjusted the cable and the lever.Works like new. I'm a happy camper. Hopefully it hasn't been loading the throwout bearing for thousands of miles. That does it. I'll ride it the rest of the season without worrying about breaking down. Maybe I can get it to roll over 100, 000..
