Got the brake line set up so it doesn´t rub to badly when I turn the handlebar.

Covered the batterybox to protect it from potential spill of brake fluid.

Hope I can get this done :popcorn:

Man, to be safe, I would remove the front portion of the bb if possible.... looking good, jealous of the speed with which you've done all this work :banger: :popcorn:
Also, would a short length of heat shrink on your brake cable, where it rubs, might that be a useful preventative? I can't handle rubbing and the marring of a nice finish....

Yes I have removed the batterybox. Have tried for a good amount of time now and can´t get it to bleed. No matter how much i try to get the air out I still hear the air inside the caliper.. Pain in the ass this bleeding..

Don't give up I think my dio kit took me three hours or more but I had not a clue what I was doing I can't even tell you how I did it on that or my xs650 but I manage to get it eventually just don't give up. Maybe unhook it from the caliper an put that in a cup submerged get the air out. Pump pump fill or something. Then hook it up and bleed.

Yes, I did take off the caliper so I could move it around. I think i have pumped for over an hour now. It just wont build up pressure... I have watched several tutorials on youtube and follow their description on how it should be done but to no avail.. I was dreading this task, and obviously for good reason..

I use this bottle with a tube from the bleeder valve. I open the valve when I have the lever pushed in. then close the valve before letting the lever out again.
Image

I even tried angling the 90degree bend more down to see if that was the problem

Thanks for the tip but I actually got some pressure now. I decided to try and pump like 10 times before i opened the bleeder valve on the caliper. Not just one pump like many of the youtube videos say. So now I have pressure on the lever. I will leave it overnight with pressure on the lever to let any air escape up to the master cylinder.

So I hope I have solved it now. Learn something new everyday building this bike, that´s for sure!


Ørjan.

Squeeze lever about 10 times fully, and you should have good brake feel on the lever.

Good luck!


Huh...guess I know a little something. Lol

Had to repeat it about 100 times but it worked.

Finally got my front wheel back! It´s 99% done now.
I get my mojo kickstand after the weekend so then I can remove the center stand.

Image
Image

Hooked up the speedometer sensor on my custom bracket. I think it looks very neat and organized! Will have to fill in the Adelin letters on more time as the brake fluid killed some of the paint.
Image

My brother printed this cover to go over the gas cap. It came out a bit big so I think I will make a smaller one soon
Image

and this cap to keep the rain out of my exhaust when its parked
Image

Its held in place with two hinges on one side and some magnets will hold it down.

Very Cool! I almost think if you put a color on your gas tank cover it might look "better" , not that it looks bad at all..... the shininess draws my attention to it. I do like that gas cap cover though, not seen that yet :banger:
