Bullet with the UCE engine / Re: Aerostich or Lee Parks gloves
« Last post by Chuck D on Today at 05:29:44 PM »
Does anyone here have any experience with either of these gloves?  I'm starting to look for a new set of gloves and the designs from both companies look very close if not identical.  They have elk and deerskin, I'd be looking at something with a long cuff to cover the sleeves of my jacket.  They look well made and comfortable, my main concern is that they are not pre-curved at all and I find that most gloves that are tend to be more comfortable for riding.

Thanks in advance for your info,
Scott
I have two pair of Lee Parks gloves. Both going on eight years old. They are amongst my most cherished possessions!
They're both the regular length ones with the seams on the outside. Unlined.
If you've never owned a pair of deerskin gloves, you don't know what you're missing.
Deerskin is so supple, that you can reach in to your pocket (with jeans on) and pick out exact change. The tactile sense that you retain with them on is astonishing. And it stays that way no matter how many times you get it wet.
I wear my Lee Parks day in and day out all year long, on the bike and off. Not so much as a loose thread has developed. They are THAT well made. Pricey but worth every penny considering that they'll likely be the last pair of gloves you'll ever have to buy.

Can't comment on the Aerostitch gloves but   I've been wearing their AD1 pants for two full seasons now and I love them as well.
Just bought a pair of their Combat Touring boots. Can't wait to start breaking in those babies. ;D

Over the past 55 years of riding I have purchased and used several different gloves, my favorite gloves are the Aerostich Elk Skin, they the most comfortable and durable gloves I have ever owned.

What year and model of Bullet are you asking the question about? Is it a home market model or export model? A little more info than what you posted will be needed.

Very sorry to hear about your troubles ... And I hope you get back on the road without to much trouble .
Can I ask , is there much play in your valve guide to stem clearance ? The reason I sakis when I was rebuilding my motor I found a bit of play .... Wondering if this could contribute . Best regards , Dave .


   I was wondering the same thing..... However, if there was not ENOUGH play?   The exhaust guide should have more play then the intake for heat expansion.    Was there too much carbon buildup in that guide from these chambers that we always find heavily carbonized ?   Or maybe from a leaking valve stem seal?  Oil IS sprayed at the valve stem and if oil was burning up right in the guide ?    Less room.... heat retention.   Snap..   Might have contributed. Especially I would think, seeing that BS found nothing wrong with the cam gear.


  I believe they upgraded that bolt to a harder grade so it can be torqued to a higher setting..... WITH red loctite. A piece of wood wedged in the primary works the trick nicely.  And I would use caution when using a thunder gun to put the bolt back on with. ... Especially if you have the older softer bolt.  It's real easy to snap a head off with too much torque using a gun. And leaving the threads in the end of the shaft.    I've done that before... not fun !  And you will only ever do that once to learn.



cam gears ok, no signs of damage. godawful amount of chain lube accumulation that needed cleaning! timing marks all line up.



 Well thats good at least !    Save you some money for sure.

Thanks Grant.  I weird already so who cares about the color ;)

pmanaz, yup, looking for good feel for sure, that's why I'm looking at deer and elk.  I hear they deliver that in spades.  I have a pair of Tour Master winter gloves.  Really warm but too bulk to ride in, can't feel a thing.

Have you looked at any of the Aerostich gloves?  I had a pair of their Elkskin Ropers for a long time and liked them....the color is a little weird, but they were super comfortable.  I also like to wear a glove that gives me the most feel.  I rode yesterday with my ski gloves and my clutch control sucked.

That means the exhaust valve failed during operation.

All that cb360 needs is a set of clubman bars and it'd be good to go.
Pretty little thing of a bike.
Another sad abomination about to take place.     :'(
