    Nearly a major fuel line mess up

    I decided to replace my incorrect overly-large metal Fram fuel filter with a correct Fram metal fuel filter and was fortunate to avert a careless disaster and costly repair.

    Local k's welcome- boca raton, fl

    I know there was a guy a little north of me in Boynton who has a K75. Not sure if he was doing his own spline lubes.

    Anyone close, please chime in.

    Thanks.

    Perfomance waning

    Switch Mirrors?

    Another option may be to switch the left for the right mirror and vice versa. The offset would bring the mirror in, instead of out. Not sure but this may also work.

    Backing In?

    Hi Jim,
    It may sound stupid, but have you tried backing in and turning the bars accordingly to fit the bike in? Not sure if this is practical. Makes the exit a lot easier.
