So where and what time and day are we meeting for dinner ?
I hate when that happens... but a lot of people do the same thing, make sure they replace that drive hub, because it's now all chewed to heck, and will be an issue, and probably the grease seal too...
reciever hub p/n 41064-1006
grease seal p/n 92049-1057

when they are jambed up, it smooshes the ears on the hub, and also then the seal gets chewed up inside....
see the pictures...

Looks like I have foam in the engine next to the fairing please see picture. Is this the phone people are talking about? Seems to me that this is causing the heat to go upward around the tank.
really surprising that with all the expert commentary on "could be this..or that, or..."""' :-X :-[ ::) :-X

nobody even chimed in and said "did you stick your nose down there and smell the end of the exhaust pipe(s), or stick your finger in one, and sniff...."?

 :truce: :-X

Concours C10 / ZG1000 General Chat and Tech / C10 speedometer gear position
« Last post by bvfa65 on Yesterday at 07:54:33 pm »
I had tires on my '87 Concours replaced but not by a Kawasaki dealer. When they reinstalled the front wheel, they didnt get the speedometer gear in the right position. A few miles later the cable broke. They are going to replace the cable and reposition the gear. I have documentation on aligning it, but I can see a small chip on the gear housing, I'm thinking it might be the alignment tab? Would someone be able to please post a side view picture showing the angle that the gear housing should be in to properly attach the cable. Thank you.

Pay attention as you dis assemble the unit, take pictures if necessary, and note the direction and location of each seal, and part you remove...
the attached pics should be some guide, as it's not documented anywhere how to disassemble.
After removing the external 'E'clip from the shaft, there is a 'pin' thru the shaft that must be removed during the assembly, and re-pressed back into the shaft.
examine the pics,
Sorry, this is all new, so any photos you take, can be used to help in the future...
So an update. Finally got time to tinker. Fired it up, smoking (white smoke) from both sides. It's a fuel issue. Stuck float(s)?

No. White smoke is from water vapor.
There’s no water in fuel.
Guess again.
Concours C10 / ZG1000 General Chat and Tech / Re: New waterpump oil seal leak
« Last post by TnRider on Yesterday at 06:00:41 pm »
OCD strikes again!

I used regular Red Loctite when putting the oil seal back in the water pump so I was concerned that it would not be adequate.  I did read MOB's statement about some residual oil may be present from the water pump pushing out the old oil. 

But...after 300 miles I still had a small amount of oil reappear on my kick stand. >:(

So...I removed the water pump again.  I had to heat up the seal before prying it free and there was no oil behind the seal this time.  So the regular Red Loctite seemed to be adequate.  It must have just been like MOB stated, some residual oil being pushed out even after 300 miles.   :-[

This time I did find that a 17 mm socket fit properly to expand the seal for a better fit and I used the bearing and seal product this time as well.  It is currently curing under a light. :beerchug:
