There very little room to slide the necessary bits out. Key pieces (airbox) have attached.sensors with short wiring harnesses. You'll need enough room to remove the ignition coils and room to insert...
You made the right choice for you. Thank you for your contributions, all the windscreen experiments and nine years on the forum!
Maybe the dirt and corrosion on both ends is a clue? The shiny bit would match the width of whatever it was securing.
Folks drop many hundreds of dollars/euros to save a few pounds! That's a big advantage over lead acid.
You typically get 80 to 100 more cold cranking amps. Slower self-discharge rate, shorter...
The replacement is smaller in all dimensions. I went up a size and it fit with a bit of room to spare. Gave me more cold cranking amps and reserve capacity.
Hahahaha... That's the cheapest fix - adding air. Nicely done.
Enjoy your new ride. Good choice.
You present one indicator (smell of fuel in the oil) and three contra-indicators (no issues starting, no loss of power, no smoke).
Are you sure there is gas in the oil?
I believe it's analog and not a learned function. (I'm not completely certain.)
There is a plug connector located under the sprocket. Considering you were working in the area, it's possible this...
Engine oil. Lubricates and helps cool the engine, clutch, stator, gears.....
There are only four fluids - brake fluid, coolant, suspension fluid and engine oil. And gas.[:)]
The mechanic may...
Also jealous of all that greenery. The last of the snow just recently melted...
Thanks for sharing.
Some trouble shooting is in order. What's your level of mechanical competence and willingness?
Remove plastic to allow closer access to the engine area.
Using centre stand.
Where are you from, where have you looked?
Where is home? (You can update your profile - this helps us better understand a situation you may describe and units of measurement.)
I assume your figures are in miles per hour or you'd likely be stalling, not just experiencing judders.
You are riding in a gear not optimal for the speed, hence, the "judders." One gear down for...
The question you are asking has more to do with your risk tolerance than your repair.
Slow leak, low speed is vastly different then high speed, rapid discharge.
Most, not all, of what you have...
That is annoying. Lots of time and patience required now.
Can you upload a picture to better show the area you are describing?
Congratulations on your hack. Brave man drilling into the expensive pieces! I'm appreciative of your plan B -using a bolt. I like to think projects through to other outcomes like that too.
Glad you are planning to stick around.
Just about your ten year anniversary as a member!
For the hot days, a Lululemon athletic shirt under my heavy Klim jacket, with the ventilation zips open. The shirt can get a little damp on the hottest days but dries very quickly - very handy on...
I think you will find a lot of commonalities.
Haynes does not have a manual for a 2017 F800.
I'd suggest that fuel is leaving the combustion chamber and burning in the exhaust system. (Explains the heat, decrease in fuel economy and power.)
Keep it simple - check the spark plugs. Then use...
One of my most valued improvements:
Exciting for you! I'm sure your expectations will be met. The moment I sat on my f800ST, I knew it was for me. Perfect ergonomics, the right amount of gadgetry and loved the sound of its revs.
Probably not an issue, particularly if only mixed infrequently. A group V Esther product should be good for roughly 10,000 km (many variables here....) So I don't imagine you'll need too many oil...
