my bars seem to be loose and wont tighten from the bolts on the triple tree..im thinkin the rubber bushings on top and bottom are finished..anyone know the name of them?
Rubber bushings are there to allow some movement which absorbs vibration to keep the nerves in your your hands from being damaged . If Honda had wanted the bars rigid they would have mounted them rigidly. Don't tighten them up.my bars seem to be loose and wont tighten from the bolts on the triple tree..im thinkin the rubber bushings on top and bottom are finished..anyone know the name of them?
I don't think mine wiggle at all and I'm being advised to loosen mine so that it will move up and down about an inch to decrease vibrations.the bars wiggle about 3/4 of an inch back and forth im sure the bushings r toast
I looked at the Harbor Freight and Tekton and went with Tekton. Cost double but higher reviews, and since I live 30 minutes from Harbor Freight while Tekton is being shipped to Home Depot 2 min away, worked out better.
Yes probably. Did anyone else who has loosened their selflock nuts run into this issue or am I just using the wrong tool? I can use an open wrench (or a small monkey wrench) to try and turn the nut, but since it is rusted on and the metal of the nut is giving, I need to use the impact driver (which means I'll have to remove the junction box part).Ah, the front junction box.
since the impact wrench will be another week, i tried spraying some liquid wrench penetrating oil on the nuts. if it works with a monkey wrench, it would be great. =)Some penetrating fluid and time may help loosen things up. Liquid Wrench outperformed PB Blaster in tests.
