300 mile trip, only a few issue's

So, I had too go pick up my kids from my mom so decided to take the 930 (300 miles round trip). It was pretty warm (high 80's) black car, no A/C etc...


My first little issue was another air injector plug falling out, luckily I had 4 spares in the boot with the right allen wrench. Upon installing I noticed oil dripping from the oil return banjo bolt. So I just happened to have a 22mm socket (for the spare belt) and tightened it up.


All is well decided to make a pit stop, and get some cold water and check the oil. After we roam around for a few minutes I go too start it to check the oil and nothing. Sounds like the starter is spinning but the solenoid is engaging it.

So I let it cool down for a few minutes, because I remember reading a post not long ago about over-heating starters. 10 minutes and no luck, so I tell the boys 6 & 9 were gonna have too push start it. Each grab a bumperette and I push on the door sill and bam, were good to go. Check the oil and were off for the last 40 miles.

It always nice when your prepared for the little issues.

Tools...I try to keep a selection on board as well. Sounds like your kids ended up being the best tools of all. Now about that starter...hmmm. Mine has yet to give me any trouble. Wish I had some kids to stuff in the boot for emergencies like that.
Finally heating up here in Washington. I think it was close to 95 here in Ephrata. Been riding the Harley to work....no AC, but then none in the 930 either.

Yes, those little tools/boys came in handy! Went to Vantage and back to Spokane so It may have been in the 90's (never looked). I could have easily taken the Tundra with A/C and music, but thats no fun!

Started right up after everything cooled down. Looks like it may be time for a new/rebuilt starter.
