Dumb little part for Ceriani forks
« on: March 11, 2019, 21:42 »
Hello Everyone,
My apologies for this post I have searched but I still haven't found what I'm looking for. (Hey is that a song lyric???) I need the sealing washers for the drain bolts, 2 would be great 5 would be better. I can't find anything local that works. Tried filing down larger washers, not great; tried cutting out of gasket material, worse. Going on my GT and SF forks.
thanks
Euro

Just go to a nut and bolt shop and buy some copper washers suitable for M6 bolt. You may need to anneal them before using (heat them up to dull red and drop them in water).

As far as I know, Cerianis always had fibre rings under the drain screws.

All of mine had fibre washers ..... but I have replaced them with copper as sourcing fibre washers can be difficult.

I have used an O-ring but it is easy to over torque the screw and squish out the O-ring.

Hello Everyone,
thanks for the suggestions and link, I had tried O-rings but didn't like that. Also will keep the copper washers in mind.
I will check out fleabay again. I wanted fibre washers in an attempt to be as original as possible.

I've been busy banging my head on the wall, wailing and gnashing my teeth---yesterday I bumped the GT and it rolled off the center stand and fell over. :o >:( :-\ :'( :'( :'(

I got perfect fit ones from a Vespa workshop. Had tried lots of other shit but none sealed properly.

Ok on the goo.
Will look at local Vespa shop, I believe I could find someone in good ol nearby Chicago.
This morning I did order the 100 fibre washers from AU Ebay, Will take about 3 months to dog-paddle the package here.  ;D

That should just be enough to do the job. Gives you a few spares in case you mess it up on the first 50 attempts.  :D
