Does "OO" signify anything?

Postby PedroTQ » Tue Feb 10, 2015 5:54 pm



G'day to All,

I am getting bored waiting for parts to arrive in the post. Looked at the bike and saw that there was not much more to do to remove the frame and get closer to clean things up.

Does anyone know what the "OO" sticker is supposed to signify just in front of the starter motor?

I am just curious as it is hard to miss so must be important on assembly?

Best regards, Peter.

Lots of stickers/stamps get attached to parts/components going down an assembly line. They usually signify a particular shift/line/factory/revision level/calibration level/inspector.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

It's on there to signify when you have taken your bike too far apart.... O O ! :o

Slowly getting her back together, just finished puting new rubber kits to all the brake and clutch master and slave cylinders along with Stainless Steel brake pistons.

Had a little trouble getting the exhaust back on so i hoisted her up onto the main work bench.
