Looking for a resource to score a few of these little rubber boots!!!
I don't know if there is a source for them or not. I know it has been talked about several times.
If anybody has an old one, or a piece of one that I can draw it up on CAD, I can get them made. I have a friend that makes stuff like that.
Mine was screwed up also and I just put a dab of silicone over it to seal it up, worked great!
Read my earlier post for some helpful information.
I bought some of those rubber carb plugs. Used the one that fit the best....cut it down to size and glued it in place. So far it has worked well.
Thanks guys for the info!! I thought Auto Meter would have them, but they won't answer my email
Autometer sux. They will not do crap for us. Will never buy from them again.
I don't think they carry the little rubber.
Someone find me an old one, and I'll get some made.
I'm not at work anymore to give you a drawing, however, the bottom diameter is 1/2" x 1/8" high transitioning to 3/8" dia. another 3/8" high for a total of 1/2" high. The inside diameter .12" x 3/8" deep, but it should have a harder plastic insert 1/8" diameter x 3/16"long inserted after to keep the speedo button from cutting or pushing thru the top of the rubber button. The reset plunger on my bike was not flat on the top but cut on an slight angle so the insert should be flat to push on it and not round.
I just glued it on because there's no space to get this thru the lens, and I didn't try taking the speedo apart.
super, i'll see what he can do.
Waiting on a bid. He said if I would make the mold, it would be no problem.
Thanks Tim!! Got your email message, I will call if I can't make it work
Hey Mr. W, if you get some made, I am sure you will be able to sell em!! KMW said they get that request a lot. Sign me up for a couple!
I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear something
I would love to know as well. Thank you.
Just a little over a year from the last post on out little reset buttons... But hey, mine just broke off!! So what's the result, are we all just going to use some black silicone on them or did Mr Wright get some made??
Hey Steve, welcome to BDB! But it will really help if ya do an intro first, this is not to embarrass you but so we can get to know you better! As far as the speedo thing, I am one of those silicone dudes for now, if you read some of the earlier posts you get a few good idea's.
Actually, I forgot all about this. All I need to do is make the mold and I can get it done. Medal is going to cost me about $150, but getting the rubber done won't be much.
