Shit is cold out here in MN these days. Been busy working on the EBONY QUEEN. Listening to a lot of Pussy Galore. Just got my slot in the Donnie Smith show so definitely come out and have a look see for yourself. Im hoping to bring a little California style presentation to the midwest. Its funny - last year, I walked outta the Donnie Smith show rolling a girder and wheel out he door. This year, Im rolling that shit right back in.
New chain tensioners available for 05 and earlier dynas and FXR's from Bung King. These are 3 times thicker than stock to reduce distortion keep your axle where you want it under harsh riding conditions. Available now through their website www.bungking.com
I decided to try and pull two from the sprocket side at a time and see if that would be easier. They slid out like butter. That gave me enough room to knock the stubborn brake side one out with a drift.
All done with new bearings and seal from All Balls. Notice my 5 gallon pickle bucket under the wheel? It has a fancy Irwin tool organizer that was gifted to hold my tire and bearing service tools. I know you can by the wheel stands, but this thing doesn't take up much room, works great, and best of all was free. Changing tires is easier than one would think, and bearings can just drop in the bucket instead of chasing grease soaked parts across the floor or bench.
I've also been replacing a few seals here and there as well as some worn out hardware. Countershaft seal, clutch actuator and seal, clutch adjuster assembly, countershaft nut and locking washer. Currently the tx750 forks are apart for new seals and a general cleaning. More on those soon.
