my home made Manometer on you tube


Recommended Posts

This is the first vid of 2. Thought I would demonstrate how easy they are to make for anyone, regardless of what they ride first and will show the actual process on the BMW later today with a second video


Took 20 mins and cost 5GBP approx 8USD

Very much like the one i made except i used 3mm internal dia tube.


You mentioned 6mm tube. Is that internal dia or external dia.


Looking forward to the next vid.

Here it is folks, part 2, in use on an R1100


Total time including the tupperware removal and refit was about 1 hour.


Notice the surface corrosion on the Aluminium of the gearbox? we have salt on our roads here in England during the winter. I don't ride in the winter but the previous owner clearly did!

Great vid


Kudos to you for doing this for those that need it.


Basically the same as what i did except i used sligthly smaller tubing and ATF - depends what you can get at the time i suppose.


Thanks heaps from all.


Steve :thumbsup:

The idle screws on my 1100 appear to be wholly un-brasslike! they do have an AV "O" ring which I checked on either side for condition. They were fine and so I returned them to service.

Thank you my friend, well spotted. I am secretary of the DMFC, the finest Aero club in England and a display pilot licence holder. There is no escaping aeroplanes at my house! (cue wife with wood-cutting axe wishing to destroy such items)
