    I don't think that's a reasonable expectation. There would be no reason to replace the slave cylinder at the same time you replace the clutch. They are completely separate items. Your slave cylinder...

    Did you notice at some point in the recent past that your clutch lever engagement point seemed to move closer to the hand grip? That's a sure sign that your bearing cage has failed and you are well...

    Sounds like old cables. A new set is a little over $100. Bit of a PITA to install. It will be a good chance to acquaint yoruself with the bike.

    It is easy to tighten your throttle cables too much. That will result in your throttle screws being held off the stops. You can see it visually. You can also check by opening and closing the...

    If you don't mind, let me know when you plan to do that. I haven't done it before. I'd love to come watch / help.

    Thanks,

    That's WAY too much money. It's worth $3K with a good title. A salvage title cuts the value in half, so $1500.

    I've always used Mobil-1 synthetic gear oil. It comes with an easy-pour top. That being said, the two guys mentioned above are WAY smarter than me on this stuff.

    You should try retorquing your pivot pins before you tear your final drive apart. Can you see the movement? Does the entire FD move, or just the wheel? If the entire assembly moves it's an indication...

    Put it on the centerstand and spin the rear wheel by hand. It should spin smoothly. If it's "grindy" that's an indication of a bad big bearing. If it goes "clunk-clunk, clunk-clunk" then you have a...

    From what I read, shiny flakes in the oil are a pretty good indication of a big bearing failure. However, a metallic paste on the magnetic tip of the drain plug is no big deal. It can be a little...

    Even with the light off (or in gear) it should start with the clutch in. If not, you have bad clutch switch too. The clutch switch is a snap to jump. Cut the wires going to the housing and wire them...
