Question about 2006 Enfield Bullet 350

1 Answer

Saddlebags What's the difference between how detachable and non-detachable saddlebags fasten to the rails on a Bullet? How easily do they go on and off? How difficult for non-detachables to go on and off? Some saddlebags sets are connected in the middle and do they need to be fastened to the bike under a seat or rack?

I bought some cheapo leather bags off ebay that just hung over the seat/fended and tied off to the rails on the bike. I unbolted my stock seat and put them across the fender underneath and they worked well. When I changed to a solo seat that setup did not look all that good so I cut the web between the two bags and attacked them to the rails using rubberized clamps I got in the plumbing section at ACE hardware. I don't really like having saddle bags on the bike as far as looks but its nice to be able to carry a pump rain suitsbungie cords , tools and various other things with ease. Of course these are not readily removable but that can be a good thing. I kinda would like canvas bags with removable clip action to attach them to the bike, but I went cheap. ,,,

How do you fix the detached spot welds on the track connectors?


If these are copper, the "spot welds" will be soldered connections.
Get a soldering gun, solder, soldering paste, and some copper wire. Practice joining bits of copper until you can do it quikly and without overheating the adjacent area. Then clean up the broken contacts and apply your new skill! Ta Da!!!!

We have a Morigeau-Lepine convertable crib-day bed-full size bed, but we are missing the instructions to convert it to the full-size. It's model number is DA722-BC & the model is somewhere between...


I can't offer the exact answer, but hopefully my suggestions will be helpful...

Converting the crib to a full-size bed should actually be a fairly simple process of detaching the 4 sides that make the crib, and replacing the 2 short sides with the full-size bed rails that were sold separately in a conversion kit. The 2 long sides of the crib become the headboard and footboard of the full-size bed.

Unfortunately, it's only a simple process if you already have the full-size conversion kit bed rails. And since Morigeau-Lepine went out of business, they aren't making any more conversion kits. If you don't have the full-size bed rails, then this could be quite difficult.

It's possible that some stores that used to sell Morigeau-Lepine cribs might still have a conversion kit hidden somewhere in the back of their stock room or warehouse. You could try calling around to a few of your local stores to ask if they would check for you. It's a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

If you have the rails, or are lucky enough to find them, then it should be as simple as locating the screws that hold the crib sides together, removing them (most likely with an appropriatly sized hex-key,) and putting the screws back through the headboard and footboard into the bed rails. (I'm really just assuming that it works the same as the Babi Italia conversion.) If no screws are visible, or if removing them doesn't detach the crib sides, then they are probably also held together with locking bed rail fasteners. To release the fasteners, remove any visible screws, then push upwards on the short side rail while pushing down on the long side rail. You might have to tap the rail up with a rubber mallot to get it moving.

If you don't have the full-size bed rails, and you can't find them anywhere, your only option may be to build them yourself, or find a woodworker to build them for you. Search online for "Bed Rail Fasteners" and you'll see several options for hardware, but they might require modifying the headboard and footboard as well. Full-size matresses are 75 inches long, so you'll want the length of your rails to accomodate (ours are 77 inches long.)

I hope I've been helpful. Good luck!

How can you get saddle bag open, that latch is screwed up?


The solution to this problem, unfortunately, will involve the destruction of two hinge pins; since the hinge is sold only as an assembly, the entire hinge will have to be replaced. I'm sorry about that, but I thought you ought to know that before you start the repair.

Look at each end of the hinge (on the outside of the bag); you will notice a hole and (it may take a flashlight to see it) the end of a hinge pin within. Those hinge pins will have to be driven toward the center of the hinge until the hinge halves separate; that's much less than an inch, but is SEEMS more like 30 feet. Use a nail set that fits loosely in the hole, or a hardened nail about the same size with the tip ground flat.

Once the hinge halves separate, you'll find that you can lift that side of the saddlebag cover only a very short distance; the nylon fabric hinge cover on the inside keeps the cover from opening more than a VERY few inches. The hinge cover is secured by 3mm hex bolts; use a 3mm allen wrench to remove the bolts and the saddlebag top should swing open far enough for you to get your hand inside.

Take a flashlight and examine high on the opposite side of the saddlebag, inside the bag just underneath the cover; there are two catches covered by a broad plastic shield. Use your 3mm allen to remove the plastic shield, then use a small socket to remove the bolts holding the catches to the bottom part of the saddlebag. You can now lift the top of the saddlebag off and reveal the bottom of the catch.

The cover of the catch is secured by 1/4-turn fasteners, you'll see the phillips-head slots. Turn the screwheads until all fasteners are obviously loose; the cover can then be removed. There is a bent catch actuator arm beneath; push the top (free end, well, actually MIDDLE) of the arm toward the outside of the saddlebag cover, and the catches you removed from the saddlebag can be freed and remounted on the saddlebag.

You'll see the bottom of the release button through the catch actuator assembly; push it out, back to its' normal position. You're likely to find one of two things wrong: the actuator arm (4XY-2841A-00-00) is bent or broken, the lock assembly (4XY-W2843-00-00) has a bent or broken actuator tab or lever. A bolt may also be missing from either the actuator arm or lock assemblies; that would typically cause misalignment or binding.

Replace the hinge, reassemble the saddlebag top with the appropriate repair parts, mount and take a nice, long ride to relieve the frustration.

Injectors for 1989 honda accord removing and installing


Detach the cable from the negative battery terminal (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code to reactivate it.).
Relieve the fuel pressure (take the gas cap off, and loosen service bolt at the top of the fuel filter; you will need two wrenches for that, on to hold the fitting and the other to loosen the nut; make sure you have a towel or something to catch the gas spill). You could, instead, just SLOWLY loosen the pressure line at the right end of the fuel rail (facing the car).
Remove the air cleaner assembly (take the top off, take out the filter, detach all hoses, take out retaining bolts, and remove).
Unplug the injector connectors (CAREFULLY detach the clips first; just pry them back out of their notches; try not to pop them off and drop one, they are hard to find once dropped).
Detach the vacuum hose and fuel return hose from the fuel pressure regulator (left end of the fuel rail, if you are facing the vehicle)
Detach the two ground cables from the intake manifold (in the middle, under one nut)
Detach the fuel lines (already did left one; detach the pressure line at the right end of the fuel rail).
Remove the mounting nuts (four) and detach the fuel rail and injectors from the intake manifold.
Remove the injectors from the fuel rail and remove and discard the seal rings (top and bottom; the second ring down on the top is the cushion ring and does not need to be replaced, but it is recommended. Most kits contain them)
Coat the new o-rings with fresh oil and slip them on the injectors (or, if you are replacing the injectors they probably came with o-rings on them. Just coat them with oil)
Place each injector into its corresponding bore in the fuel rail (doesn’t matter which is which if you are replacing them all).
Coat each new bottom seal with oil and press it into the injector bores in the intake manifold.
Install the injector and fuel rail assembly on the intake manifold. Make sure the centerline of the electrical connector on each injector is aligned with its corresponding mark on the intake manifold (little arrows, I think). Tighten the fuel rail nuts to the specified torque (17 lbs)
Reverse removal procedure for the rest.
After all is done, turn the ignition on, but do not start the car. This will build up pressure in your fuel lines. Do that two or three times, then check to see if you have any leakage around the injector, or other fittings, before you start the car.
Then you’re done.
Hope this gets you through it.

Can a cooler fan relay be located and replaced by a non mechanic


Dont know where your relay is but generally relays are grouped together in a box under the hood or on a rail on the firewall. They are "plug in" units that can be easily repalced.The ones housed in a box are usually easier to service because there is a description usually inside the cover. Many times the relays are the same# serving different purposes. If thats the case, use a good one and plug it into different slots 'till the fan comes on (make sure engine is hot enough for this to happen) Be aware that a bad sensor will give you a similar problem (it won't tell the relay to go on)

Very nice tool indeed. I have had mine since they first released it to the public but I have never had any problems with either size brads. Have you ever dropped the fastener? Check your rail for bends as it may cause the longer brads to be binding. If there are no bends, detach the rail and look to see if there is debris within the rail preventing a 2" length from advancing that would not otherwise affect the 1.5". If none of this seems to be the problem, return the brads to the store for replacement as the defect may be within the brads themself. Hope this is helpful.
