Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Add on lights failing
« on: October 18, 2019, 05:17:35 PM »
Ok, so my Sons bike 2015 x and me on my FJR, went for a Europe trip, his addon lights bolted on to the engine bars decided to extinguish, one after around 350 miles, and the other 1400 miles into the trip.
   Having returned from the trip some weeks ago we took a look.
The bulb filaments had self destructed, why?   The vibration  (mentioned on this forum some while ago) , on engine bars is extreme at certain revs, as I asked my Son to grab each one in turn whilst we were on the trip and he couldnít believe the oscillating they cause, go beyond a certain rev range then they smooth out..
   So the bars are coming off. One wonders what else itíll cause .

Buy yourself some rim protectors and some rim sealant slippery stuff for ease of putting tyre on.
I changed both my sons x and my x with Avon,front and rear and balanced the wheels too, axle stands, axle bolt and remove old weights and use new stick on ones. Balancing makes a huge difference .

Looks like a sure way of ruining the bike.

The nuts are m12x1.25 thread pitch, the socket you need to undo them will be a 19mm ,loosen the nuts with the wheel still in the bike, it needs a lot of muscle to just do that.

What a great trip. Iíd have no qualms about travelling the globe on an X , more than capable, at least it can be pushed about easily and economical with fuel.

Itís  a breather, because as the light heats up it expands the air....gotta go somewhere, and likewise when it cools it takes in a sniff of air too.
