Re: V Raptor 1000 VTV

From the manual,

"Blow into the VTV from the orange side. If the air is blown through then the VTV is in good condition"

"Blow into the VTV from the opposite side. If the air is not blown through then the VTV is in good condition"

Re: First Ride for me

And if you're going to bleed the rear take the caliper off and raise it above the master cylinder. Chock the pads/pistons and have the nipple at the highest point.

Can be a right old 'kin pain otherwise.

Re: First Ride for me

And hot off the press... by filtering Bike Torque Racing's web site on a Cagiva Raptor we get the same F20C102K kit. See https://www.biketorqueracing.co.uk/buy/ ... 2k.htm#eq1

Contact them for ETA.

Re: First Ride for me

Well... it was none of them... I've got the receipt in my hand and the stock code was F12C102S. But this looks to be an old code superseded by F20C102K i.e. a F20K fully adjustable with compression on one leg & rebound on the other. It's strange nothing is listed on Matris's web site but do a web se...

Re: Tappet clearance check & adjustment

Or, of course, your measurements are correct and the clearances were incorrectly set when checked previously.

Re: Tappet clearance check & adjustment

Yes, even taking into account clearances will tighten rather than loosen they do seem to be way too tight. It's also suspicious that all of them are the same 'way too tight'. Certainly not doubting your abilities but a third check might be in order just in case, see thread https://raptorchapter.org....

Re: First Ride for me

Its a bit low, You might find this is a little better with a new shock. When I replaced mine, for a Wilbers, just knocking it off the abba stand I could see & feel the difference with no immediate sag. Btw the Wilbers has rebound adjustment which is just about accessible over the top of the standar...

Re: The rusty work hoss.

Is this the darling? bolt.jpg It's a 6 mm hex, with the larger portion being 11.75mm wide & 22m long and the threaded portion is M8 and 14mm long. The gear lever itself had an O ring on either side to retain the grease - if you look carefully the bolt has a little recessed channel in it to hold the ...

Re: The rusty work hoss.

With the original pipes/cans my mounting lugs snapped off so it's definitely a vibration/stress point in the system. Although with the lighter ones I've had to replace the rear downpipe/link pipe union gasket which isn't the nicest of all jobs. I'm assuming you've got light after market cans on your...

Re: V Raptor in a couple of weeks

hear that the forks are a bit soft? are we looking for heavier oil and new springs? Whatever you do you just can't get around the crude damping. Mine where set up a little on the firm side, ex demo, and the keys used to rattle about on bumpy roads. You'll find all sorts of threads on here regarding...

Re: The rusty work hoss.

Chucked the exhaust links on, there sitting too low for the holes on the frame I'm thinking these aren't the standard link pipes so did they previously utilises the holes? You mean the welded on frame lugs with a convex inner that took rubber anti vibration bungs? with a matching welded on tab on t...
