    Hotseat Pipes

    Pipes will back from powdercoating Wednesday. Figured I'd start tearing the Pro apart and prepare for the install.

    gonna pull my fuel cell,pipes, waterbox, carbs, intake, exh. valves, and pipe mounts tonight and start cleaning stuff up.

    Think I found my 400-500 rpm's I've been looking for, almost has to be what was causing my loss. Knew about the possibility of an exhaust leak, but was "positive" it wasn't leaking....wrong. See if you can spot where the problem was in the pic. If we all agree, i'm calling it "the problem" and leaving it at that. Time for new pipes!


    At the time, pipes are out, i've got a hell of a mess. Stinger hose I got last year worked awesome and look brand new, but were a COMPLETE PITA to remove pipes! Ended up pulling pipes from the back side, and I've always pulled them loose from the collector first.

    I like a few coats of Permtex copper spray on each side.

    That stuff? Never thought of that, I'm pretty sure I have some but have never used it. Sounds like a good use for it.

    Been using it for over 20+ years,and can say I've never seen a leak from it. Only thing I don't use it on is Fel-Pro Precoated head gaskets. I've had good results on the tin 750 head gaskets. You can precoat the gaskets with a couple of layers and allow them to dry and install days later.

    Heck, use to use it on a Sukuki 90 head gaskets we'd make out of a alumuin pie plate like you'd get with a store pie.Hey,when you 14 and at the cabin and want to ride......

    I make alot of my own gaskets (carb base,intake,etc) and always coat with it.

    Hey....souldn't you be working on skis,and not watching a forum.

    I'm at work right now! Watching the forum from the comfort of my lazyboy

    I'm wishing i was at home tinkering with my ski now, but it's good reflection time here, to make long notes and "to do" lists
