PostSubject: Mirror Extenders!   What did you do to your SW today. - Page 6 I_icon_minitimeFri Aug 05, 2022 1:40 pm

I installed my new set of mirror extenders from Amazon. Got tired of looking at my shoulders, I'm 6'5" and this mod is a great one for me. Just wish my ride home from work wasn't in the middle of a massive thunderstorm, my first time in serious rain. I was properly soaked without rain gear. My jean jacket, Mechanix gloves and boots were still wet this morning!

Under the shade tree this HOT August afternoon, I managed to service the air filter on my Swing. Thanks to JeffR's pictorial it was the only breeze about. I was a little concerned with how much trimming the K&N filter took to get it nestled in. It appears that K&N over molds their offering for our Swings, at least mine was. Glad I didn't break any plastic, but found someone else had before me, honestly.

If you are not already familiar with Plast-Aid (it’s the best product available for tupperware repair IMO), then use black ABS plumbing cement* along with some fiberglass drywall tape. Whichever you choose be sure to adequately clean and sand the offending items.

*ABS plumbing cement. NOT ABS/PVC or PVC plumbing cement.

I did not ride my bike to Kenora this summer, but maybe another year. It is currently waiting on a new OEM seat on back order (who knows when it will get here). Would really like to cruise the Great lakes up to Lake of the Woods one of these days.

Plast-aid is good stuff bonds plastic stronger than new. Stuff has a strong odor use it outdoors and let it set up. I have some in closet in double freezer bags don't like the odor.

KN is missing 1 screw hole in outer filter case really doesn't matter much as long as you have a good seal to inner panel.

Hi! I have never heard of Plast-aid, the stuff sounds legit, smell and all. I was in a hurry to get it all buttoned up as the neighbor started cutting the grass halfway through the job! So, I grabbed some 5min, two-part, plastic epoxy that I had on hand and set it up while I dealt with the swapping the filter. I did notice the screw stud was missing, and as I've read somewhere, I just omitted it...hope that's okay. Should I go back and plug that hole?

I took the belt and clutch off this evening. It was slipping a little. I was more inclined to blame the clutch than the belt as it seemed to hook up once I gathered a bit of speed. When I got the bike I really disliked the clutch action - far too abrupt. When the bit of slip came into it I preferred it.

The belt is near the service limit.
The clutch is something else.
There's no friction material left. There's barely any shoe material left. Each shoe is worn to a knife edge and the drum is quite badly chewed up.

…and it still worked passably well.

Here’s a link to DIY Clutch Bell removal. Hope these help:
