Who's faster Lupi
Anyone know the material and guage/size of safety wire? I just got a twister and some Alum 0.04" But not thru a Bike shop or online. So the wire might not be right. But cant beat the price.
I've got it on my bike, but I didn't put it on so I'm not sure exactly what gauge or material it is. If nobody can come up with a god answer here. You could always check mine out.:thumbsupChamp91 said:Anyone know the material and guage/size of safety wire? I just got a twister and some Alum 0.04" But not thru a Bike shop or online.

should do it.
When you safety wire make sure you secure the wire in the OPPOSITE direction that the bolt will loosen up. To wire the oil filter get a large hose clamp and secure it to the filter, then either run the safety wire through a slot in the clamp or drill the head of the clamp bolt and then wire that. Check out this link to the WERA rulebook for good examples of how to safety wire. http://www.wera.com/pages/rulebook.htm#ch13 Also .028 and .032 are the most common sizes of wire and most racers use both depending on what and how much room you have. Maker sure you don't overtwist the wire, that will weaken it.Kruz said:Anyone want to split some of this safety wire crap...
So we need to wire the oil fill cap and filter?
I assume you just drill a small hole through and wire it down. Where/what exactly do you wire it to?
LOL If you order from Grainger, then you've seen what I am currently doing for a living probably! Ugh....I can't stand looking at that damned catalogue any more. hehehcherrypicker said:Granger and McMaster Carr are everybody's suppliers.
