Epoxy would probably work...but it would have to be in a pinch. JB weld too. Shoes get really hot...I don't know how the various adhevsives would work. I know JB weld stands up to some very high temps.
Of course clean both surfaces extremely well.
If it's your Giro bike...take a shot, you've hopefully still got another brake. If it's anything else I wouldn't chance it.
yup, its giro. one of the pads fell off today. camelhairy says he has a brandy new set for me, though. front brake. Back brake is better, works great, but i'd rather have both. I'll give em alla shot and report on the results on the way home.
PS. I know someone in portland who bought Ruffo's mt125.
If the shoe pad came off the shoe , that could be dangerous, the pad can roll inside and break into pieces ....
I would take it to the placr that refurbished the shoes ( if that ever happened) and if bought new, those should get warranty replaced.
Probably you got them refurbished , whomever did it did not do a proper job, I never heard about that case. I am sure they will fix them up, they can stick the pad to the shoe , they have the means to do so.
yeah, I love it . . . but it has one of those weird charging systems that i think has to be magnetized. I'll figure it out eventually . . . then i can't selll it to you. I need someone who knows those systems. The regulator is OK, etc.
Maybe I just need to change it over to a different system. If that's possible.
That's what I was going to suggest...find something else that will work on it. There is also places that will rework your shit to more modern specs.
The Dellorto on my 106 was a nightmare...I gave up on it and replaced it with a 20mm Keihin...freakin starts first kick, runs like a champ and I never even had to change jets. Major difference in ridability.
I'm impressed by the Gileras, very, very nice quality for an inexpensive Italian bike.
I have recently built a cafe brat scrambler type bike using a Yamaha 125 YBR as the donor.
Because i have changed the tank i lost the original fuel pump that lives in the tank and had to opt for an external one from ebay.
now the bike will start but cut out as soon as ANY demand is wanted.
Bought this lovely hitter, 1000s ie. The picture shows the damaged side, a tank dent is the worst of of the cosmetics. The Ohlins and exhaust are upgrades. The po has fucked up the signals/taillight with cheap led's. Overall it is a cheap fix cosmetically.
Put a battery in it, the dash cycles...
New to the forum. About a year ago I picked up a 2000 Triumph Adventurer with 3,000 miles. I'm trying to "level/flatten" the bikes lines but there's not a ton of builds or aftermarket parts for an Adventurer. I do not think there's much I can do as I'm not a welder or bike builder so...
First let me preface my question with a little background. I have been working on and riding the Honda 350 twins since they first came out new (with a lot of other bikes thrown ). I have always had trouble with the stock carbs on these bikes as most people seem to have. I have a 1973 Honda CL350...
Is anyone running an older DR650 as a stripped down trail bike or desert sled?
I am currently working on one, and trying to find a good exhaust, tire and seat setup. Open to input and suggestions.
