Getting Frankenbike ready for Halloween. Today, a little "plastic surgery"...
Thanks, I appreciate the compliment...Any more pics or steps in this process?
It looks good.
I've been using a Duplicolor sandable filler in red and Rustoleum 2X Ultracover. Probably lots of better things out there but this works and has been very durable. The final color is very close to the red plastics.What kind of paints are you using?
I've had fair luck with the Bulldog adhesion promoter and then Rustoleum paints over that.
Currently working on the Gen-1 project side panels and rear fender using Bulldog as the base and then Rustoleum 2x Real Orange Gloss, and will finish with 2x Clear Gloss.
I've been running 705s the last year, they're good as a 70/30 tire, I would say most adventure conditions except mud. They wear well also. I used Conti Escapes before that and they were similar in performance, though I like the 705 tread patten more and they're a good price. The Battlax has great rubber compound, but I've only used them as a street tire.I went and did some highway miles with my new 2022 klr. 1,300 miles so far. It really has amazing torque. Cruised just fine at 70mph. Comfortable ride never got sore. I'm a new rider and every day I have a different opinion on what tire I want next. Mostly road driving but love gravel. The D750 are not great on gravel. Trying to decide between shinko 705 and the Bridgestone battlax.
Ohhhh it's a bit of a story... simplest explanation is engine damage secondary to an accident, not a failure. The woodruff key for the stator got crushed in the slot, literally no way to remove it (I tried everything to the point of damaging the crankshaft). No idea where the best section to post is, but I'm open to whatever a moderator would like.I don't recall reading previously anything about your bike needing a crankshaft replacement.
And I can't see anything amiss in the current pic, as that must be the New Crankshaft.
So may you show us, tell us what is wrong with your engines crankshaft?
I would like to see this failure & repair in its Own Thread,
In this section, 1987 through 2007 KLR650 Wrenching & Mods If possible?
