    I am in. It will be on my return loop from Labrador - Newfoundland. After that, on to the Horizons Unlimited meet-up in Stecoah, NC.

    Busy, busy.

    Is it coincidence that the little storage cubby at the rear of the monoshock RT/RS seat is exactly sized to hold a voltmeter; a spare rotor (suitably wrapped and padded; a diode board; a voltage...

    The torque wrench is a good idea, but there is a distance collar between the bearings that contacts the inner races of the two bearings and prevents the axle torque from being taken against the...

    Did your car's manufacturer warn you not to jump start it if the battery fails?

    Compounding the confounding, they have made final drives since 1923 and water pumps have been around since, oh, 250 years before Christ. Handlebar electrical switches - now THERE is a technically...

    Have you checked that the vent bolt that holds the sped cable in is clear? You can blow it out with compressed air or clean it out with a wire.

    I don't know how you could strand an Airhead with a dead battery unless it was uphill both directions. A dead charging system, yes. IMO, gel batteries aren't good for motorcycles (thanks, BMW), but...

    At first I thought that they had just implemented technology that was too cutting edge to be reliable, but that is not it. The Japanese manufacturers can make some pretty sophisticated stuff work. ...

    I am sure that they do, but the evidence is all over this forum that our faith is misplaced. We have $25,000 motorcycles that go tango uniform regularly (but they don't leak coolant "abnormally"). ...

    You never will if you buy a new one every year and never lay the miles or years on one.

    You are probably not open to it, but you sound to me like a man who needs a scooter.

    I have a similar setup on a 1976 R75/6. I would not have the Bings back for anything. I am running the 190 main with 35 pilot. You do not say what size needle jet or jet needle you are running. ...

    One either appreciates classics for what they are, or they don't. My 1967 Camaro and 1957 BelAir didn't corner and stop like a new one either, but they were a source of great satisfaction.

    I sold my 92 R100RT to buy a 2004 R1150R. The 1150 is faster, more comfortable, better handling, more reliable, orders of magnitude better brakes, and gets better gas mileage. What's not to like? ...

    Especially for a single row chain, this does not make sense. In fact, I believe it to be the other way around that the only one you can get is the part number 11-31-1-335-934 chain with the master...

    Not so. In fact, the link you gave indicates that the 31 42 1 233 956 lower clamp can be used from 1976 to 1984. The lack of compatibility that you describe begins with the monolever bikes from...

    OUCH! Wrong tool!

    As far as the timing, point the timing marks at each other. Loosen the valves (if you haven't already) so the cam will stay put. The mark on the crank pulley is not easy to...

    I think they are anti-stop rather than anti-lock. I put a dual ATE set-up from a 1977 R100RS on my 1976 R75/6 with no drama. I also used and recommend the handlebar mounted master cylinder. I used...
