Full Tilt Boogie III Wrap Up


Full Tilt Boogie 3 is all done.  Thank you to everyone that came up to Minnesota for the show.  Thank you to all the vendors and sponsors that help support our good times.  Thank you for letting our dirty friends stay at your houses.  Thank you for feeding everyone. There were some bad ass bikes and great people.  There were some great music acts (thanks Rachel, Witchden and Droids Attack).  There were happy party goers that won some cool raffle prizes.  And there were definitely some new friends made.  I am compiling the video footage I shot over the past few weeks and with some help from friends, I will have some visual candy to share of our experiences of the Boogie known as Full Tilt. Also, special thanks to everyone that helped promote our show and those of you that traveled large distances to share the vibe with us.

Next year we will try to outdo all of Full Tilt past.  We will have a new and better Full Tilt Boogie to offer and we are excited to get the train moving on that.  Until then remember to keep two wheels turning and if you see another biker stranded or he needs parts or whatever the case, help him out.  He would do the same for you.  This is the stuff that keeps our obsessions on the road and no amount of chrome or attitude can fuck with that.
Cheers.

tt500 build : part 13

While taking my time getting the motor back together, I decided to try and get some of the smaller stuff checked off my to do list. The rear tire has been installed, and while doing so I noticed the bearings were locked solid. No movement at all. I tried to remove them by my usual method with a hammer and drift, but no go. Heat and penetrating fluid didn't make a difference. I found a thread on the sr500 forum that said to use a 5/8" concrete anchor bolt as a blind bearing puller. For less than $2, why not right?

Shove the bolt and sleeve through the bearing leaving the nut and washer facing out. Grip the sleeve with a pair of channel locks or vice grips and tighten the nut. Once things are nice and snug tap the bolt from the other side with a drift until they drop out. The first bearing on the brake side came out nice and easy, but when attempting to remove the second one, the sleeve got tweaked. Luckily I bought two.



I decided to try and pull two from the sprocket side at a time and see if that would be easier. They slid out like butter. That gave me enough room to knock the stubborn brake side one out with a drift.



All done with new bearings and seal from All Balls. Notice my 5 gallon pickle bucket under the wheel? It has a fancy Irwin tool organizer that was gifted to hold my tire and bearing service tools. I know you can by the wheel stands, but this thing doesn't take up much room, works great, and best of all was free. Changing tires is easier than one would think, and bearings can just drop in the bucket instead of chasing grease soaked parts across the floor or bench.



I've also been replacing a few seals here and there as well as some worn out hardware. Countershaft seal, clutch actuator and seal, clutch adjuster assembly, countershaft nut and locking washer. Currently the tx750 forks are apart for new seals and a general cleaning. More on those soon.
