Re: Akront/Marvic wheels

Nice job! You're a nut! Love "my wife doesn't know the login to this forum"! I haven't done anything with my Paso in several months outside of hooking up the battery tender and checking tire pressures. Cold, wet, not exactly riding weather.

Re: Happy New Year! Now go ride!

I missed my window. It suddenly turned gray and wet, and now it's snowing heavily. It's quite lovely, actually, and an opportunity to test/appreciate the 2004 BMW 325xi 5-speed wagon I recently resuscitated. It's fabulous in the snow.

Happy New Year! Now go ride!

It's so quiet around here! Be that as it may, Happy New Year to all you Paso heads! Wasn't warm enough to ride today (okay, I'm a wimp, it was 33 F), but supposed to be a few good days coming. The Paso's on the battery tender and my new hip is healing fast, so with any luck I'll get at least a short...

Re: Bad Bearing

You'll need to remove the tensioner/bearing assembly and then pull/drive the bearing free. Bevel Heaven stocks them. That bearing is knackered!

Re: Removal of horizontal cylinder's timing belt cover

No sure why nobody just simply replied that yes, that's what you have to do. Easy.

Re: Bodywork fasteners

Nice. Can't wait to learn if it works as hoped. Love the idea of getting away from the well nuts and having true quick-turn fasteners.

Re: Auxillary Venturis

Late update, but fattened up the fuel/air mixture, out 2 full turns from 1-1/4 and much, much better. Idle is a little fluffy (is that a legit description?) but the pronounced off-idle hesitation seems gone. I just wish you could carry out carb adjustments without having to remove the fairing and ta...

Re: Auxillary Venturis

Higgy, the auxiliary venturis I used (as per the ebay link) are not the tall ones, but another Paso rider had used them successfully so I figured I'd try them. I should note that I have no point of comparison with the originals as one was broken when I got my bike and started the process of fitting ...

Re: 750 Paso keys

I got my keys from http://keys4classics.com/ in Australia. Perfect match/fit. I only had to provide photos, Stuart did the rest, $54 for all three, plus shipping. Great service, highly recommended.

Re: Weber emulsion tubes

The altitude chart is nice information to have, good find, I hadn't seen that before. Anyone else interested in understanding emulsion tubes should follow the link, it's a really coherent discussion of what for me has always been an incoherent/mysteryious subject.

Re: Did you ride today? Show me!

Nice Fordson tractor. Like the Paso, considered somewhat revolutionary when introduced.
