I got a nice stainless steel front brake line from Galfer. Their website even let me search for a line compatible with my ‘85 model which I thought was pretty cool.
Turns out I had the seal in wrong. I think I have fixed it.Hi folks: another wrenching season has begun. I started with a brake bleed (all new m/c, hoses and caliper) and all was well but now I have a leak from the caliper. Took it apart and yep, leaking from under the pad on the "thick" side.
So what to do? Everything is new and shiny! How do you seal it so the fluid doesn't leak?
My piston is brand new. I had the seal around the top of the space for the piston instead of in the groove in the piston hole. Durrrrr.Also, did your caliper piston have any marks/gouges or pitting? Mine has a small amount of pitting but I think it should still be good to use
I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by diode and holder--do you mean the starter solenoid? Or the voltage regulator/rectifier?I don’t suppose you’d be able to post a pic of how your diode & holder is mounted?? I think it’s either on the coil mounting bolt or on the horn mount. I can’t seem to find any quality angles to see it from

this little bit they list on the parts fiche as a “diode”, I think it’s part of the safety lockout for the starting system. I’m just unclear on where exactly it mountsI'm afraid I don't know what you mean by diode and holder--do you mean the starter solenoid? Or the voltage regulator/rectifier?
