Ah yes, I'm following with interest.

Great stuff, keep up the good work!

Cheers, Al

I'm not sure the Vauxhall Corsa qualifies. But you can use smurf blue gloves...

Still enjoying the videos, I've a feeling your teenager is going to need a few more tools though :-) I can see a couple have been added already, circlip pliers and regular pliers. You will need a blow torch to free some of those nuts.

Are you planning to change all the bearings and seals?

How is the cat taking to all the upheaval?

Yay another channel to subscribe to  \o/

Nice to hear I'm not the only one who's ambition outweighs their ability :-)

Working in the conservatory that heater will be working overtime at this time of year and it will be really noisy when it rains but at least you don't need any lighting for the videos.

The workbench baking trays are genius and I'm really looking forward to the next episode.

Great stuff. Al

It's looking in better condition than mine!

Welcome and enjoy the ride. Al

Interesting to hear the tension that was mounting during Zuckerberg's interrogation during the congressional hearing. In case you missed it...

See Bee-Won, I sympathize because I too am having problems riding the CB-1. I'm having trouble with my right wrist and it flares up after a ride. So much so that I've bought another bike, a CBF600 S. Some might say it's a bit boring compared to the CB-1 but it's more upright and comfortable to suit my age and with only mid 70s horsepower I doubt I'll loose my license. I didn't pay a lot for it but it's in mint condition, really mint.

I might keep the CB-1 but it does need a nut and bolt restoration, I've not made my mind up yet.

Thanks Pod70 but I've already ordered everything I need from Wemoto.

And thanks for the info on the shuttles. I'll be doing that this weekend. Hopefully on the road again by next week.

Cheers,

Al

Thanks a_morti,

I've got them both apart now. I've got all the seals, bushes and a stanchion on order from Wemoto now. So I should have this all done by the weekend and back on the road.

Interesting that the old seals came out spring side up. Clearly they've been changed many, many times so I can't be 100% sure if that's correct. But that's what it looked like in the video I watched.

I just looked at the parts catalogue, the pan head screw locks the trip knob in place. I think from memory the knob itself has a flat on so it just pushes in place, it's the lock screw that is left hand threaded and screws through the center of the trip knob.

11  General Category / Tech Corner / Re: Trip Knob Install? on: July 22, 2019, 04:22:51 PM
I'm not sure what the pan head screw is but I do know that the trip knob is a left handed screw thread, so turn it anti clockwise when inserting it in the mechanism.

I just watched a Youtube video on fork seals, I'm an expert now :-)

It looks to me as though it's writing goes towards the oil facing downwards so that the oil puts pressure on the seal as the fork compresses. Makes sense.
13  General Category / Tech Corner / Re: Do you think it's fixable? on: July 22, 2019, 08:33:12 AM
Yay, I've got the better one apart!

Looking at the stanchion, it's movement area looks good so I'll be keeping that one.

I was looking at the seals that I have and I'm not sure which way up they should go, Is it with the numbers stamped upwards or downwards? Common sense tells me it's upwards but I thought the internal spring should be at the top. Can someone help?

I've attached a pic of both ways up.
14  General Category / Tech Corner / Re: Do you think it's fixable? on: July 20, 2019, 06:11:03 PM
Yes, I'll get them apart (Hopefully), and decide what I need to buy.

Cheers, Al

Hi a_morti,

Thanks for the advice, I'm actually working on the not rusted one at the moment and I should have said, yes I've removed the spring clip holding the seal in place and undone the bottom hex bolt.

I've been applying heat around the collar near the seal, I'll be needing to respray the forks because it's bubbled the paint. The seal has moved a little, it's now just past the groove where the spring clip would go. Each time I pull in the stanchion though, the stanchion gets caught in fork leg for some reason and I have to knock it loose with a mallet. But I'm getting there. I've run out of gas now so I'll need to get some more before continuing.

I agree more force is needed, I'm knackered! I think this will be a long haul.

You would have thought that there would be a puller to do this job.
