    The front forks are not hydraulic dampers. They are just an oil bath lubricated slider. That is all. Just a slider. Nothing inside but bushing, fork leg, oil and a seal. All of the spring and...

    For slow speed maneuvers they teach slipping the clutch, vary the pressure to vary the friction in the friction zone without stalling. That is one of the bigger problems for new riders now that...

    The first rider could have used lots of wrong technique and did 90% of the wear before you got it. I have 90 K on my clutch, and the first owner taught MSF courses and did lots of friction zone...

    I always combine the fluid change with a rear tire replacement. So easy to drain it then. I check for slack every time I put it on the centerstand and check oil. Takes like 5 seconds.

    The pinion seal is known for weeping a few drops. It will eventually fill the boot with oil, then leak out. ON my bike M1 Syn 70W90 made it worse. Chevron non syn 75W90 almost stopped the leak....

    You can use more, of course, but that is plenty. I get a name brand, not the house brands. If there is any left I toss it since it will absorb moisture once the...

    Which part of new management do you not understand. They deserve a fair chance. Holding grudges against the former owner and his minions does no good to anyone. We need more dealers, not less.

    Not to panic anyone, but a dropped adjusting nut is no big deal. The bottom of the sump is ribbed, so lots of places to hide. The oil intakes have screens on them, so the nut is not going to get...
