Still have to do the oil cooler. I didn't see anything about the breakline banjo bolts, but that probably isn't a terrible idea

My problem was that we had family in this last weekend, I maybe had an hour and 1/2 to do some of this. I am gonna wrap up what I can this week and the weekend.

I still have to drain the cooling system and go through the refill process. I don't have the instructions for this bike on where all the drains are but I will figure it out.

Here's the rule. I would say Water Wetter, Engine Ice, and 7th Gear PG Coolant, are probably legal. I would wait for Walter or Tom to chime in..

"Water cooled engines may use plain water, or water with Redline (or similar
product, call CMRA for verification) cooling system rust and corrosion inhibitor. Glycolbased antifreezes are strictly prohibited.

Water Wetter is OK, Engine Ice is no good, dunno about the other.

+1

I've never heard of the PG coolant. Best bet is to email Walter*at*cmraracing*dot*com and ask him... or you could just do the easy thing and use "Water Wetter".

I think Patrick sells it.

Jacked up the rear axle lock nut

Well i finally screwed something up I couldn't fix

I was going right along drilling my rear axle lock nut and right as the bit started to exit the other side SNAP.

The titanium drill bit broke off in the nut and I can't get the thing out. I heated it, needle nosed it and finally gave up. I started to drill it out from the opposite direction and no dice.

I have it drilled from both directions but I can't punch through, I can't get through the titanium.

I ordered a new axle lock nut and will try again next week..... doooooooooh so !

Everything else is going great, almost done with the entire bike!

This is truly one location where a drill press will serve you well, especially because the through holes have to line up.

When this has happened to me in the past, I usually, provided there was sufficient access, drilled the hole a little bigger on one side (to the broken drill bit) and then punched the bit out with a small punch. It usually works best going the opposite direction like you tried. If you tried and it didn't take, at least the part is on order and is fairly cheap.
