    Stop going Boing! (Rear shocks - Ohlins?)

    So, the daily rider to work is often the '81 R100RS. I just recently rebuilt the front end with Race-Tech springs and cartridge emulators. OMG, what a difference, it's almost creamy now! A great...

    Is the rivet steel or aluminum? If it's Al, I vote for drilling it out with a slightly undersized drill bit, then picking out the remaining shell. It should collapse fairly easily, with no damage to...

    If you go with the black/clear silicone caulk, a trick: to make a clean edge, use a wood coffee stir-stick. Dampen it with spit or alcohol, and run it over the caulk, along the seam. It'll give a...

    Go to the handlebar mounted master; I'm doing that with my ATE's this winter. The under-tank setup is ridiculous! (They did it why? Because earlier drum-braked models had clean bars??)
