Campfire Talk / Re: California's Highway 1 is now open
« Last post by Richard230 on Today at 02:41:51 pm »
           The state of spelling in this country is atrocious :) :) :) ;)

            Spent '57, '58 and part of '59 in California. Enjoyed the hell out of what I did, where I went, who I met. I never went back, never missed it, very glad I didn't stay there.

Well, my spell checker didn't complain.  I finally found a state map and corrected the spelling of Morro.

Sidecar Talk / Re: New sidecar installation new lights blown fuse
« Last post by Grant Borden on Today at 02:40:19 pm »
You may have a short in the wiring between where you made your connections on the bike and the sidecar. Those light bulbs only draw a few watts each, normally tail/running lights draw 5 watts each, the brake lights normally do not draw more than 21 watts each. One tail and one brake combined should draw about 26 watts total when both are on, that equates to about 2 amps. To find amps divide the watts by volts.

Remove the bulbs from the circuit the try it, fuse remains good add one bulb at a time testing in between to determine what the problem is.

Continental GT Cafe Racer / Preventative measures
« Last post by General_Apathy on Today at 02:07:11 pm »
Having a good read through some of these posts and can see that the GT is a very hands on proposition. I was fully aware of this and it's one of the things that attracted me. We seem to have a full range of quirks ranging from the minor - loosening nuts and bolts to the frightening - cracked frames. Any advice on preventative measures to either prevent or improve any of these quirks would be good to know. Which bolts work loose the most? Which parts benefit from Loctite? Any tricks to stop things from braking? Start as I mean to go on and all that 👍

The highway is now open all the way between Monterey and Morrow Bay.  See attached article.

Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Gearing question

I noticed a 5mph difference in where it stars to get buzzy in 5th.  I bought my 19 tooth from Hitchcock’s.  I don’t recal the price.

Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Closed loop tuning

hpwaco -- not only am I long-winded but I use too many abbreviations. :)

The evaporative emissions system on the California version of the 2016 C5 consists of a sealed gas tank with vent port; 3-port valve; EVP canister; and a purge port on the throttle body.

The gas fumes are vented from the tank into the EVP canister via the 3-port valve.  The EVP canister captures these fumes in activated charcoal.  At some time in RE's engine management protocol, the fumes are drawn from the canister into the throttle body via its purge port to be burned as part of the air-fuel mixture.  This reduces raw (unburned) gas fumes escaping into the atmosphere.  In CA we also have gas pump nozzles with rubber bellows to seal the pump-to-tank path.  Doesn't work so well for motorcycles since you have to pull the bellows back to enable fuel fill flow and to see when to stop fueling.

Questions are good on the path to knowledge.  That's how I got here.  And I have a long ways to go.
