Girlie Charging Woes / Re: Girly Shindengen SH775 vs Shindengen SH847
« Last post by London_Phil on April 11, 2020, 06:32:09 PM »
As I understand it, and I have been looking at this for the 800xc, the basic difference is the 775 is 30A, but has a known issue at high revs, where as the 847 is 50A with no rev issue.

I would say that unless you are revving the nuts out of your tiger, whilst running your output at full, the 775 should be fine, but I don't have a Girly, so please check with others, as I may be wrong..

Girlie Charging Woes / Girly Shindengen SH775 vs Shindengen SH847
« Last post by Flapalo on April 11, 2020, 03:39:48 PM »
Please forgive me,
I am not english native speaker so searching forum is a bit of hassle for me!
I live in country where money makes difference, not like rest of the world, but few hundreds does make huge difference.
I have tiger 2004. 955i  and usual problem withe burned stator. I want to upgrade RR from stock to Shindengen series RR, BUT!
New Shindengen SH847 is monthly income in my country and I am looking for something close to that, like Shindengen SH775!
I just have question will it do the job like newer Shindengen SH847?
Shindengen SH775 is US $80, and Shindengen SH847 is US $200, so, you see what I mean?
I am ready to do Sasquatch mod, but first  need series RR!
Please, can I use older Shindengen SH775 to save my coil, and to live happily ever after?

No Cracks, but the pipe clamp wasn't particularly tight.
Bike doesn't use water, but once seen, I want to make sure its fine.
Probably just nip it up a bit once flushed and refilled.
Going to take the opportunity to dismount the Rad, and check the Regulator, so probably end up attending to most of the clamps..

Continuing the innuendo theme... are you sure there are no cracks in your pipe?

Sorry Nick, liked your title, so apologies for stealing the style.

Doing a coolant change on the XC. Noted some weeping between the main coolant steel pipe and the rubber hose.
My Dad used to clean the steel, and put a thin smear of Blue Hylomar (the non setting stuff) on the joints on his various cars, over the years.
Never had a leaking issue, and never had problems with removing the hose x-years later.

Anyone have an opinion on steel/rubber interfacing?

Thanks for the responses guys. So there would be nothing wrong with using a standard hex bolt then? Other than it might look a bit gash.

I think the one I have in mind is called a washer hex head.

Flanged Hex is what I would call them: Similar to this?  With a dab of Loctite 232 (Medium)
