    Stock dipstick dimensions needed

    Here it is measured to the bottom of the screw cap (right where it contacts the oring). If you miss by + or - 1/8" it shouldn't be a big deal though.

    Why do I keep going through rear wheel bearing?

    If they bind after hammering them in, you need to back them a bit so they spin freely, but not too much or they'll bind when tightening the axle.

    You need to press them correctly so the bearings don't bind, they should fit so they spin freely when properly torqued. If you press them too much they won't loosen when torqued, if the fit is too loose they will bind when torqued.

    Anyone ever tried to restore plastics?

    I also painted this light cover with rustoleum red and black some 8 yr ago and the paint is still holding.

    A long time ago i also sanded the white side covers to soften the edges of the scratches, cleaned with paint thinner and repainted white with rustoleum plastic paint. Still look almost new except for some deep scratch marks.

    I dry sanded off the dried up plastic, then wet sanded then a light pass with a propane torch returned the gloss to the sun dried rear fender. The original blue tone did not return though.

    Seat concepts and IMS 4G tank fitment

    Guy who sold me the bike is no longer my buddy. Had to find a buddy who still has a grandma so you could have her input on the matter, but they both know nothing about bikes though. Haha.

    Seat concepts and IMS 4G tank fitment

    My IMS 3.2 developed a crack around the filler neck, I'll see how to best weld the neck back. Not first hand experience as it was cracked when I got it, but my buddy says it is definitely cracked. And my buddy"s grandma says the leaking fluid stink smells like fuel.

    Off season to do list: Can we share notes on this?

    I'm planning to disassemble and lube the steering, swingarm and shock bearings this winter.

    Thanks Erik and JJ.
  15. What is the correct Kawasaki model name and year to order engine and bike parts from TT store? I can only find a 2003 KLX400 and it says canadian only, and there is an -A1 and -B1.
