Well, it could of been yesterday - it's a long way down the path to postbox so I don't like to send the staff that far every day. It takes too long and the last butler never came back.

Cool

4 years and 3 days since I last updated you all on my leaking 2-stroke oil problem.

I don't get out on the bike much - like once or twice a year, and tomorrow will be its second run of 2017. I've spent the day cleaning it and checking it over and as I cleaned the oil of the right hand footrest and the exhausts, I decided to check the oil lines again. When I took hold of the banjo it was clearly loose, so I nipped it up....

After two full turns I realised that it's fooked. Stripped threads? What do I do now?

Are you talking about the banjo bolts on the oil pump?.....if so you have most probably stripped the threads in the aluminium body and the holes will now need helicol inserts fitted to enable the banjo bolts to tighten up again.

There is most probably a posting about this somewhere on the site....use the search facility to find it.

Otherwise someone who has already done this should be able to advise further. Exclamation

Yes, the bolt that goes through the brass thingy with the oil feed pipe going into it. It's pi$$ing 2-stroke oil out and onto the exhausts, footrest, etc.

Okay.......Type Helicoils in the search bar and Have a look through the search results and you should find some good advice from those who have previously been down this path......then its a case of either do it yourself,get someone to do it for you,,,,,or replace the pump.



Good luck  Exclamation

And once done use dowty washers on the banjos so they wont need to be tightened as much to seal.
