The carbs are back on, getting the throttle cable on is a BITCH. I'd get NCRs if it meant shit canning that overly complex dual cable throttle setup. Speaking of cables, I can't get the left controls off....i see no more bolts but it is not moving at all, not sure what's up with that...grrr!
It will probably be easier to just remove the carbs again and fit the cables, then install the carbs.
As for the left controls, what specifically are you having difficulty with? Do you mean the lever perches or the switch pods?
I"m not sure what I want to do next besides figure out how to separate the chaok from the old master. I think I want to put the calipers back on the bike enough so I can get enough leverage on the bolts to separate them and to a balls out rebuild.
Not sure what a "choak" is. Please provide a pic or a real description of this.
I had to use a shop vise to get the caliper halves separated. However, I also had to use a real shop's, shop air to get the pistons out. It took around 140 psi and some real ingenuity to remove them from their bores.
Mine were stuck solid. With 120 psi I was only able to remove one pair on one caliper. The other six were stuck and would not even begin to move with 120 psi.
Made me think they weren't moving at all under normal braking. It would seem the two smaller pistons on the left side caliper were doing all the stopping. The lack of wear on the rotors would seem to support that theory too.
Once I got all the pistons out, I ran them through my ultrasonic cleaner with nothing more than some dish soap and water as my cleaning solution. It took several trips through but they cleaned up quite nicely. Same for the caliper halves.
I reused the same seals, once I inspected all of them for signs of dry rot, cracks and tears. As I found none, I just lubed them up with some silicone assembly paste and pushed them back into their respective bores. The pistons slide quite nicely now.
Also used stainless steel hardware when bolting the caliper halves back together. Still have to torque them, though I'll likely wait until I bolt them back on the fork tubes to do that.
I dunno if putting the calipers back on the bike to break the bolts is such a good idea. Just the thought of pulling the bike over on top of me makes me wince. It took quite a bit of force to break them loose.
I used a 1/2" drive breaker bar and it still took some doing. A 1/2 drive impact might have made the job easier. I have one, I just didn't feel like digging it out. Not like you'll have that available in your parking garage anyway.....sean
