*** Your garage / workshop ***
« on: December 09, 2017, 01:23:28 PM »
hey guys,

i'd like to know how you guys work on your bikes at home or in your backyard.

i, for example, live in the middle of a big city.
the only way to get a place to turn some screw is to rent a garage from some one who owns a private garge yard.
so thats what i did, i found a nice garage yard 150 meters, bee line, from my apartment for round about 60 per month.

i maintenance there my 2005 fazer, the cb500 '97 of my girlfriend and rebuild my R6. hopefully more bikes like a ninja ZXR400 to come, but space ist restricted :(

Mine and my dad's little empire of dirt



The Bridgeport Vertical Mill, 2nd Metal lathe and the welding table arn't in the pictures (these pictures are from last year before they were moved in)

The bikes live in the Garage with very little tools so nothing to see there

Thank you  :)

This was just after we had finished building it about a year ago.   It is a lot messier now :P

I will get some better/up to date pictures soon

i've had a self-loosening drive front sprocket nut.
now tightened with 110 Nm instead of 90 Nm and put some loctite medium/blue on the thread.

Replace the locking washer.. its exactly the same as my old R6 2001-2.. my washer was rusty, broke off and the nut worked its way loose, flicked up and smashed my crankcase... oil everywhere as i was going around a roundabout. game over.  :'(

ill do so tomorrow. thanks for the tip mate.

as soon as the new part arives, the drive sprocket is under inverstigation... ;)

Not a lot of shaft thread engaged in the nut, almost like the sprocket boss is too thick. Agree with Bob, never re-use tabbed lock washers or split pins.
