Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: After market LED Headlight units

Carrots!

Rather than trying to make lights brighter we could instead try and improve our eyes' performance after dark.  No further drain on batteries, no wiring upgrades, no dodgy 'pattern' LEDs from the orient. Just pop down to your local fruit and veg retailer.

Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Slow oil leak
« Last post by Blairio on June 18, 2018, 10:03:11 pm »
As you can see in the picture, I have an oil leak. I have ordered all of the replacement gaskets I think I might need, but am looking for your input as to what else may be causing the issue.



It seems there is a shadow of whatever is leaking directly above the exhaust. If it was the rocker bolt, why would this be?

Is the stuff on the cylinder head fins actually oily?  Or is it possibly the exhaust gasket that has let go and what you are seeing is soot & carbon?

It could be a host of things. There may be a tendency to overfill the primary. Try not to do that. I let mine stop dripping from the level hole, too much oil here has no benefit.There only needs to be "some oil" in there.  And lastly, stop the "Lubrication Voodoo" and use what the factory recommends.

So the 2001 Road King custom that I recently purchased had this led headlight installed and gets the job done quite well.  And less than $50 its quite the steal.  Definitely not retro or classic in appearance, but it sure is bright.

Its been somewhat of an ordeal but I'm mailing Bmadd34 his activated vehicle Scout (https://findmyscout.com/motorcycle-and-atv-gps-tracking/) tomorrow.  Hopefully he will be able to include it into his upcoming "long ride" adventure.

You can view its current and historical locations at
   https://app.findmyscout.com/scouts/map
using the following login credentials
   group_psychosis@yahoo.com/Bmadd34.

Scout does not yet offer subaccounts (they will) so everyone is an "Administrator".  Please don't change any settings.

I've entered the known itinerary as Zones.

For those of you with iPhones or Androids and are comfortable with installing apps, you can get real-time movement detection, zone entry/exit, etc alerts using the "FINDMYSCOUT" app and logging in with the credentials given above.  I don't do apps so I can't give you more details than that.

I'll be driving it out to Descanso tomorrow so you can see how it will work for Bmadd34.

The Scout is a nice device with a sensitive and I believe unique "movement detection" sensor that alerts your smartphone app if your motorcycle has been jostled, etc.

The oil seal is bonded with metal adapter plate but in my case all four times they are parted.Oil seal is in good condition but parted from metal plate.

Search for .mp4 in your PC and that should help you spot it. These HD videos are saved in MP4 format so that's the best bet.

          Yes, that I know and I think I've 1/2 figured it out. Gotta run another 'spare a ment.

          I think plugging the remote audio mic in might have stopped the recording at about 10 seconds into the video (I finally did locate the 10 seconds) of a 14 mile ride.

           I took a 10 minute video around the house an hour ago without the mic plugged in and it came out fine.

tooseevee: I know the feeling!

I know you didn't ask, but - my best advice to you is: ride more, record less.  The bike is worth all the hassles; the video editing, not so much...  ;)

             Oh, I know, I know  :) Believe me, I would if I could.

              As far as video goes, I resisted it a long time. I've been successful with smart phones, though. Still don't even have a cell phone. I have really good audio stuff though. That's my weakness.

I have been putting engine oil in mine since 2005 with no problems. It is hard to tell what the failure is by your pics. Is the rubber swelling or perishing? Who knows what kind of rubber the manufacturer uses, particularly R.E. Use what R.E recommends, its the safest bet.

Bullet Iron Barrel / Oil seal adapter failure
« Last post by arindamcc on June 18, 2018, 09:14:20 am »
 I am currently using Royal Purple 01320 Max Automatic Transmission Fluid in my four speed Royal Enfield Pre unit primary chain case but it is very strange that with in 2500 km four clutch case oil seal adapter ( 111888/A ) are failed. Oil seal adapter change is very difficult job. I am attached a picture of oil seal adapter. Is ATF not suitable for oil seal adapter ?
Please suggest me what i can do now, back to 20w40 or ATF.
