Base Gasket Residue Removal - How ??
Posted April 21, 2004 - 11:18 AM
I know I am going to get flayed alive by you guys for this but the only method I found that worked for 'most' of the gasket was a box cutter. I was VERY careful and have not scratched the surface hardly at all, but I'll be damned if I can get the rest off. I dont want to score it with a flat screwdriver and I dont want to use the box cutter mor than I have.
So....how do you do it ?
Please dont say theres a special product for it...cause I doubt I can get it here in Switzerland.
Is there some 'common' chemical that will do it?
Or am I destined for hours of work with a soft scraper ??
I'm going nuts !!

Are you in the middle of checking and/or replacing the rings because of the revving problem? I just got mine back together this evening. The bike is running much better now. I put the jetting back to the way it used to be and replaced the fuel screw assembly, including the tiny little o-ring. I did a 25-mile ride this evening and it ran almost completely normally. (I think I have to tweak the fuel screw and may have to go back to one size bigger on the pilot jet.) I would recommend taking a look at the fuel screw o-ring if you're still trying to track down the cause of your bike revving at idle. The o-ring on my fuel screw had a groove worn into it so I think it didn't seal properly.
