    Oil Leak help?

    I'm stil trying to sort out this oil leak, I have replaced everything there yet it still leaks??? I'm talking about part number 18 on this microfiche, For the oil pump.I've replaced the hose,the dowel,the oring and the screw and it STILL leaks! I don't know what the problem is. I thought maybe that the case had worn in that spot but it looks good, there are no pits or grooves. Has anyone experienced this before?? http://www.powerpartsplus.com/pages/.../2/yamaha.aspx Thanks!

    I put 320cc's of oil in the lower chamber on both sides, I have the clickers set to 9 out on compression and 11 out on rebound. I can't be 100% sure that the clover shim is isn't spinning without opening it up again but I'm pretty sure it was on properly when I installed it. I think i'll just wait until I can warm it up and ride it properly before I try and make any adjustments. If I remove the inner chamber to check where the clover shim is than I will have to re-bleed it again will I not?

    Dave, Is what I'm feeling normal for suspension that hasn't been fully warmed up. I guess I'm still a little worried that I made a mistake on assembly. It feels amazing through the small stuff, Stutter bumps and slightly whooped out trails but it's really rough on the few downhill braking bumps I have near my house.

    Alright guys, I thought I would give a little update on my long overdue review of dave's oil. So after receiving the oil and beginning to re-assemble everything I ran into 2 snags, I snapped the o-ring at the bottom of the compression assembly(The exact one dave warns against snapping) and I also snapped of the stem off of the IC Piston seal assembly while trying to install the clover shim that dave gave me to test. I was at first really worried about how hard it would be to get such a small KYB part but dave was right there with what i needed in around 6 business days for a whopping 2.92$. A lot better than a whole 300$ inner chamber assembly. So I finally got everything back together today,Charged my shock with 145 PSI of nitrogen, Got the other clover shim on and put the forks back together.Assembled the rest of my bike, Started it up and let it warm up a bit when i noticed a small dripping coming from below my skidplate. I took a closer look and noticed a small oil leak from one of the hoses running to the oil pan. It was only a small leak and I was really looking forward to trying out the new suspension so i went for a small 5 minute ride through the trails behind my house. The first thing that stuck out for me was how plush it was over soft stuff now, I mean really plush. You can sit down and still not feel anything. The second thing I noticed however, Was how much stiffer it was over the big stuff. The suspension also felt a little stiffer off the stand as well. I didn't even get a chance to re-check my sag or tire pressure. I just let it warm up and took off for a small ride. Dave says that you won't really notice anything until the suspension warms up a bit and it didn't get a chance to today so I guess the review will be put into further suspension until I can get the o-ring I need for the oil leak from my local yamaha dealer which will most likely be on monday. Well Thanks again for the patience, I will do a full review of everything on monday for those who are interested but until than I guess i'm just going to have to wait in anticipation for that my parts to come in.
  7. I hate asking this but could someone please post up a fiche or picture of how the compression cap assembly goes back in on a 06+ KYB Shock? I forget exactly what order the washers go in. I know I could mostly use common sense but I want to be sure.

    Well on paper, Dave's oil is supposed to last anywhere from 100 to 280 hours, Without the polymers and fillers in it there is nothing really to break down.

    The new leak jet injector is purely speculation at this point, Do you really want to be the one to release this unconfirmed information to the public?

    Just thought I would give a little bit of an update. Dave's oil arrived on monday, or 5 buisness days after I ordered it. I than immediately began to assemble the rear shock taking the time to ensure that no air remained within it. During the process however I broke the o-ring the the bottom part of the compression assembly. Dave is sending me a new one in the mail free of charge as this isn't a part you can get from your local Yamaha dealer. I'm still waiting on the tool to separate the inner chamber which I ordered off Ebay last week so it will be a few days before i get the forks together as well. Dave also sent me a new product he is testing called a "Clover" Mod for the forks. It is basically a clover shaped shim that sits over the compression ports at the top of the stem. This supposedly prevents cavitation or air bubbles being created while the piston moves up and down. I can see how this would work as my only knowledge of cavitation is that of navy submarines trying to prevent cavitation in order to stay silent and the shim sort of resembles that. Anyways this is my update on what I'm hoping is a very informative review and I hope to post more soon.

    Sure........I'll do my best to stay objective......... I don't like the name of they guy who puts the clutches in the red bikes so the honda's will handle terribly and make very little power. I once knew a guy who knew a guy who worked at a kawasaki dealership and his sister was really ugly so stay away from the green bikes as well. I heard that suzuki was doing some sort of business with china so therefore I assume that all the parts on the new RMZ's will be made there and come with a free trial account to the world of warcraft so if you don't mind yellow than its a good move. Apparently yamaha has been working on a direct injected 6 stroke that makes more power than a 4 stroke at 9 times the displacement. The AMA has yet to get back to them with a ruling. KTM still refuses to run a linkage or a conventional fender, I assume that they're engineers just aren't that good with angles. If your going to be spending money this season on a new bike than I would probably suggest a husky, Not because I believe they're superior but because I think I read somewhere they also come with a free BMW thrown in or something like that....................Hey, It's still better than transworlds!!

    Quick question.......

    The throttle slide

    Quick question.......

    I was just wondering whether or not it is normal for the slide to chatter and rattle a bit at idle......I think I read somewhere that it was but i'm wanting to make sure. Thanks!!

    Yet it is somehow OK to take engine oil this seriously........... I'm just trying to help anyone out there who is maybe on the fence about whether or not to jump for dave's special oil. I myself was on the fence and a review like this could be the impetus as to which side I wanted to be on. If dave really is on to something with his suspension oil and it helps my YZ-F than I think that he deserves some credit and I'll happily give it to him. I don't see him advertising in any magazines yet and there's no banner ad or pop up on thumpertalk but if it really is superior oil than why not let others know about it??? Not enough good business get the recognition they should and i'm starting to think maybe dave is one of them,But if it isn't than I would also like to help the common consumer and maybe save them a bit of money in these tough times........Anyone else remember roost boost??? I will say this......Dave sent me a PM to let me know that my oil shipped today and is also sending me a new product to test free of charge, So even if it does turn out to be just snake oil than hey.........At least he's a nice guy about it!
