I recently bought a 2KF that I am rebuilding for long distance travelling. I noticed that the rubber parts of the carburator to engine attachment pieces had loosened from the alumium parts. Some yellow powder came out between the two.
The bike is 13 years old an has done 14000Km. Does this defect occur frequently at this age and mileage or is indication of an other poblem like overheating for instance. The bike seems to run smoothly.
I found I fast type of glue that should withstand petrol and 200 °C and glued the pieces back together. Until now (after only 500 km) the joint seems to hold.
Can I thrust this repair? Does anyone have any repair experience on this?
