    no real updates dex except electricals sorted and bike starts and revs fine. been occupied with other priorities and haven't touch a zed since end of last year. about to rebuild the dax engine but that will be the extent of work for monkeys for next 6 mths.

    Been a while almost forgotten i still have this buG eyes to finish...

    pix for Dex!

    1.jpg

    First timer doing hydraulic brakes i tried to fill the caliper and bleed the rear brakes with the caliper mounted as is and it just didn't work! Fluid would flow straight out of the bleed nut without filling the cylinder. Worked out after a while i had to have the bleed nut higher than the entry point which meant the caliper had to be removed... doh!

    Does anyone have an English manual for the TDMR 32 carb? Is idling at about 2.5-3k revs normal?

    Any reason you've put the caliper under the swingarm Babu?
    My latest arrived like that but I flipped it back above because I was worried about clearance when leaning it over.

    I know! had issues with rego and lost interest and parked it, engine number wrong but almost all sorted just waiting for paper work now. Wish i could ride it as much as you ride yours, so jealous of you WA guys having the time for group rides. Maybe i should send it over so you guys can get some Ks on it...lol...

    Have to say that the work that you are capable of doing and your attention to detail in not only your work but the way you present your information is much appreciated and extremely impressive.

    Photos have been restored! Now i can start removing stuff from photobucket for good!

    It was an opportunity for me to re-read the build, i have not read it since posting the build. It was cool to revisit some funny and lots of encouraging comments from everyone, thanks

    What an amazing bike! thanks for correcting the photos, I'm lazy and have left all mine in Photobucket but just did the "~original" fix on them all, I'm using Imgur for all new photos though. I read the whole thread from start to finish tonight!

    You need to bring it over here for a month, you'll clock up more k's in that month than you will in a year over there

    Yeh send it over, me and John will look after it

    Just out of curiosity, when you've had it running, is there a noticeable difference in vibration (less) because of the rubber mounts?

    I do not notice any vibrations on this bike, not sure how much of it is due to the rubber mounts tho, can't conclusively say as I don't have another J1 to compare with. I get some vibration on the 108 dax and pretty crazy vibrations on the 106 hardtail. Indicators and exhaust mounts have fallen off the hardtail lol... i recon all bikes should have these engine rubber mounts, not hard to do.

    It's definitely something I would've done on mine if I'd seen this before These bikes have some wild vibrations in them and I've had to put about 2 litres of loctite in the old girl to keep everything from vibrating lose! not to mention we all carry ductape with us for those times when we do loose something - which is nearly every ride!

    I have the benefit of a full machine shop complete with fitters/machinists out in the factory at work, so won't take long to weld on and machine for me! Next tear down I'll be all over this
