    Got a new K5 recently and all three got new wicks Wednesday evening. Nearly identical coils/wicks in each. All were bone dry through Thursday. Yesterday the new one (which was the most heavily used) had just an insignificant little bit of juice at one of the vents. By today, again the new one had just a little blot of juice and the other two were doing their usual seeping, including the one that had very little use. This seems to suggest is that it's not usage related. The most heavily used K5 had very little seepage after 2.5 days of use, whereas the one that was used very little was seeping big time after just sitting there most of the time. I'm gonna replace the top cap ring on the heavy seeper and see if that makes a difference. There's plenty of wick in the wells and the coils are at least 1.5mm above the air hole.

    SOLVED: Kayfun 5 Center Pin Screw Not Making Contact

    The Problem:
    Center pin screw does not extend far enough out of 510 connection to make contact. On my problem K5s the screw was nearly flush with the bottom of the 510 threads. My guess is that as the result of tightening the insulators become somewhat compressed, preventing the screw from extending far enough.

    The Quick & Dirty Solution: I found this solution on the Fasttech forums, which goes to show you that we can learn learn things from the clone users. It couldn't be easier: Simply remove the screw insulator and reverse it, so the narrow end is at the bottom. Works like a charm! Now, you might be able to get the same result by installing new insulators, including the deck insulator, but this fix is easy and free.

    Of course, I found this after spending $$$ on a couple replacement center pin assemblies and insulators. Oh well, it's always good to have spare parts!

    Can someone post some info or links to 3rd party sources for K5 JFC o-rings. I've gone through nearly all from my extras packs to find ones that done cause leaks from the air slots. Anyone have first hand experience using 3rd party JFC o-rings?

    Origin and many others have the extras pack. I'm specifically looking for the JFC (juice flow control) o-rings.

    Just go to your local industrial supply jobber. Take the old o-rings with you if you aren't sure how to measure the dimensions, or, find the parts list posted in this thread earlier. Buy spares for the whole thing. They are all readily available, common metric o-rings.

    Personally I hope it's NOT as tall as the K5, but they don't list that yet.
