    SENIOR DIRT RIDERS BLAB!

    Me and wood don't get along. Maybe next time I need some carpentry, you can stop by ???

    I've used both the punch method and the blind puller. I might buy a blind puller from ebay. When I had the loaner unit, I looked and it was identical to the set in the red plastic case on ebay and relatively inexpensive.

    As moto said you can displace the spacer enough to get the punch to work on the bearing. I know sometimes it seems like it's impossible - but I thought that too a couple of times. OR...you can rent/borrow a blind bearing puller. AutoZone stores around me loan out tools for free. How can they trust you to bring them back??? The deposit for the loan is more than the tools are worth.

    I loved those old Honda twins. You could beat the ever-luvin' piss out of them and as long as you changed oil once in a while - they would just keep on running.

    Been there! SIL always wants to operate the controls while the bike is just sitting on the stand, regardless of what's being repaired/disassembled.
  7. I kind of "speed watched" the YouTube vid but I didn't see any mention of his wife during the vid. I wonder if she grew tired of the "camping for life" thing..?

    I played hockey for a while but people kept bumping into me so I decided to quit.
  9. You don't seem to understand how this web site works. You have a different problem - with a different bike (yours) so start a new thread in the Honda XR400 specific sub-forum. You'll also get more helpful responses than what you're doing here.
  10. Hi red! Good to see your name again although I know you didn't disappear, I think we just follow different threads. Do you ever hear from jd67?

    I used to race with a guy (he was in a different class so I never raced against him) He used grease. A BIG handful of axle grease. We just shook our heads when he would do it. He must have had a lot of pressure in the tire just to keep it from slipping on the wheel.

    With no trails, what do you use for navigating? Compass, GPS, or the sun? I got kind of turned around and confused on some twisty trails last year and all I had to help me was the sun. I knew where the edge of the area was so I just kept rolling with the sun at about 10:00. It worked fine but got kind of sketchy when it got cloudy!

    All the best to you and your family from TT reg's and I'm sure all the TT seniors would say the same.

    Lets see your vintage ride

    I know you're not finished yet but eventually put some fork boots on it. You want to save those unobtanium parts!

    I got a FREE Monster Energy drink at an automotive event so the price was right & I tried it. To me it tasted like an over-carbonated, kind of bitter but less tasty cola. I don't remember if I finished it or not. I CAN say I've never actually bought one.
