Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Re: Fuel line install
« Last post by rhubarbray on Today at 01:04:11 AM »
Not getting a click and the safety tab is all the way down. Actually, it`a little loose and will have to be secured up when I get the line on. I don`t think it`s on properly as I can pull the fuel line off if the tab is out of the way. I don`t want to squeeze too hard as it is plastic and I`m working in my garage. 19 degrees C in the house, -25C outside, garage is about 2C. Plastic is not very forgiving at those temps.

You should be getting a fairly obvious "click" as the catch in the fuel line clip goes over the circular tab half way up the fuel spigot.  Make sure the orange safety catch isnt stopping the line going on all the way, if its slightly out it wont go on

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Fuel line install
« Last post by rhubarbray on Yesterday at 11:12:36 PM »
Just wondering how far onto the fuel pump spigot is the fuel line supposed to go? My orange safety catch is out of the way, I pushed the line on and it went on smoothly and then just stopped. There is about 6mm between the safety clip and the reinforcing flanges on the plastic spigot. I tried squeezing the two little side tabs but it would not go on any further. Are the little side tabs supposed to pop out when the connector reaches the correct position? With it on as far as I can get it the safety connector will snap up. If I pull it down I can pull the fuel line off without depressing the side tabs.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Re: K&N oil filter failure

I have used the hi-flo filters for all the oil changes on my tiger and previous bandit.
Wouldn't touch those K&N ones with a bargepole after I heard about the recalls due to the welds on the nut giving way a couple of years ago 👎👎

Understand, though I reckon the M25 is worse ... !

I stopped using the M25 about 10 years ago. We used to go down Dover ferry & rallies down Chislehurst.

Ha, thanks for the offer m8, Brussels is one place I can't get past quick enough, that circular is one scary place to be filtering. Past Namur it's fine.

I know you tend to go further south, but don't forget if you're passing by Brussels you're welcome to tea or stopover (though there's a risk some nice extras might vanish ...  :164:  ).

Are you losing the bulge Tim, with a straight piece of pipe, or putting back as it is, after the CATectomy?

Bulge is staying, just gonna cut a flap out and weld back after Ive pulled Kitty out :001:

Just done an oil change using an HF204 filter from Hi-Flo Filtro. But this one is a race-spec with a nut on the end - and even if you don't use the hole for wiring it on, the end-nut makes removal and replacement very easy. It is an HFC204-RC (or RS), and cost me a pound more than the standard one!  :028:

I've used Hi-Flo before and they seem a good make. I'm just hoping this doesn't start suffering the same problems as the K&N nut.

Nah Strasbourg is not on my route?
Where I stop in the North/South Vosges depends where I'm heading next, if I'm gonna head down the 500 1st stop might be Niederbronn. Otherwise past Nancy, then for 1st stop Kaysersberg via St Die. For 1st stop at Masevaux, via Nancy & over the Ballon. Good campsites at all 3 with a short walk into town. They are all nice towns, Kaysersberg is a chocolate box town with a great restaurant. Masevaux campsite has a bar & was run by a Scottish couple for many years, now retired. Niederbronn is good also. I can be at any for teatime from Zeebrugge.
