      Wild ass guess: body mounts.

      The rust you see, in my opinion, is just the tip of the ice-burg. I can almost guarantee that other areas of the rig will show similar in the near future. I also see that philedelphia uses salt brine on roads during winter. Not a good sign...

      Hi Gang, slowwwwly starting the install. One thing I have notice w/r no cut alum base install, I see no call outs for lockwashers in the instructions nor deepsouth's and brady adventures youtube videos. What's the thinking here?

      Out of the line-up due to 100 being in a state of deconstruction (new bumper) :doh:

      I’m not planning for extreme departure angle needs when the bikes are on. More of a “touring” configuration for this mission.

      Kinda about space. Relocate 5/10g water tank to swing our = more internal space, relocate x# propane tank to swing out = more internal space/safety, carry 2nd spare for way out there runs (read Baja) = peace of mind, mount mtb to swing out =...

      Multimeter: feel your pain as first attempted to us an analogue devise from like mid '70's. when hooked up in series, blew fuse. Realizing my error (after waaaaay too much time scratching my head), immediately bought a digital with 20a...

      10-4 Struggling on this. You'd think I would know better.

      That departure angle makes me nervious.... Been thinking on how to a) limit side mounted (1up etc) wheel protrusion beyond vehicle side profile (think in fork mount) b) limit bike fork/tire protrusion w/r roof profile. Perfection always gets in...

      Mudpros, I have the dreaded parasitic electrical draw :bang: Battery load tested fine. Question: How to I prep the vehicle so I can use my multimeter in series to check amperage/fuse status. I do know that the vehicle has to be put to "sleep"...

      Carbon build up is a problem for direct injection engines. Believe ours uses standard injection above the valves. This "washes the valve tops" thus mitigating carbon build up there. manufacturers have recognized this and are migrating to an...

      I'm drilling the holes today. I'll use "3 in 1" oil as its not production (holes x4). Used drill bgits will be treated as disposibles as this is a rare event in my world.

      Wow, great response and explanation. Worked 20+ years as an engineer, many in a model shop. Never knew this info. Guess I did' read the "machinist's handbook" enough. Total respect for the machiist.

      What do the mud gods think? instead of drill lubricant while drilling holes in 100 series frame (mounting aftermarket rear bumper), is there a downside to using used crankcase oil (from same cruiser)?

      Club: to prevent drilling/freeze shattering, put the stearing wheel club on such that the key side faces the dash. Very little room for drill and any freezing attempt will be aimed at crook's face. in the "image is everything" world, I have been...

      Hi, new to the forum- excited to be here! This is just my ramblings about the 100 series I just purchased- if it needs to be an another forum, mods please move. I've been wanting a 100 series for a few years. Covid caused me to have some career...

      Opinion: it's nice to have another source (assuming have the FSM) to consult if there is confusion on a subject, as there often is in my world. Pulse, it is a one volume source and easy to carry in rig for quick field reference. I'm betting it...

      Live to Ski replied to the thread Battery Light.
      Initial observation indicates that the undercarriage rust is not an issue. HOWEVER, rust can hide well. Recommend "poke and hope"....that is take an ice pick and start poking. Pay special attention to areas that appear rough (I see that in the...
