The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Video: Devil’s Whip - Concours 14
« Last post by Poseidon on Today at 06:47:21 pm »
Just posted up a new video of the Devil’s Whip (NC 80) from when my wife and I were down in Maggie Valley for the Spyder Rally. Had a friend from Canada (K1600B) and a friend from Ohio (C109) meet us there for some riding. I didn’t edit this one. One of the guys I’m headed down there with tomorrow wanted to see it unedited so he could see what the road is like. If you have never been on this road, it is steep (9% grade) and curvy. Several hair pin curves. Lots of fun. The good part starts around 6:25 when an SUV / Crossover decides he needs part of my lane to make it around a curve. Be sure to either watch to the end, or skip ahead to where we stop up at the top. My buddy on the K1600B’s response when I ask him what he thought of the road was priceless!

Like a whole new bike lol

Mine too, but I left the plastic the same and changed what's under it. I really need to wear out the tyres though, so I can put the best coloured silver wheels back on.

Excellent choice of the fastest colour.

I was never all that fussed about the colour because I had planned to change it anyway. Just haven't got around to it yet.

The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: Front and rear axles same diameter?

BEARING DIAMETERS ARE AS FOLLOWS;

FRONT

601B6005UU   BEARING-BALL,#6005UU

Dimensions - d (inside diameter)   25mm
Dimensions - D (outside diameter)   47mm
Dimensions - B (width)   12mm

REAR
601B6304UU   BEARING-BALL,#6304UUC3

Dimensions - d (inside diameter)   20mm
Dimensions - D (outside diameter)   52mm
Dimensions - B (width)   15mm

with that said, and to make the H/f tire machine happy, you want a 3/4" threaded rod, which will work on both wheels just fine.
The H/F I have, is actually threaded 22mm, but a 7/8" bolt, with a wrap of teflon thread tape, will thread into it...
I made a screwed in adapter for mine, and a pals, by elding a 3/4" SAE nut, to the head of a 22mm bolt, and it allows me and him to insert a piece of 3/4" all-thread, to use as a center post... with common nuts and washers.

Somehow that show has left its original concept and even its own 'outline' IMO. It started out fantastic- who does not like watching a real psychopath (as in reality or a very realistic performance)? In fact, the first episode with the psychopath and the little girl in the ice cream shop was outstanding IMO. The first season was also great. But it kinda' lost its way in season 2 for me- than antagonist and protagonist are not usually 'pals' or even work associates.

On the plus side, Black Mirror is going to arrive with <apparently> three new episodes in June '19, and going by history, at least one (and maybe more) will be great.

Westworld is coming back in '20 too and that still has a shot at being a good show though it seemed to be leaning the other way in the second season. Still, the special effects and overall execution were really pretty good for TV IMO. Then again, the first season did have Anthony Hopkins and I think he could make a chimney fire interesting and worth watching...... :-)

Dead To Me on Netflix.
Fun at times, really heavy the next.
Not the best TV, but 30 minute episodes that are entertaining.

Michelle, are you certain about that?
I know the shoulder {at the ends of the front axle} are larger, but I thought the Inside diameter of the bearings were the same?

Ride safe, Ted

Update; Michelle; I looked at images on Ebay and I think you  are correct.
             kzz1king; What are you thinking to do? I'm wanting to do something similar to my HF tire changer.
