    Cleaning the Windshield

    The best thing I have found is UltraLuster. It has 4 polymers. Two that coat dirt particles and makes them smoothe and slippery, then 2 more that leave a nice finish.

    Ethanol

    We all know ethanol attracts moisture, which is not good in your gas tank. I have found a product that micro-encapsulates the water so that it burns like fuel. It has a
    1 to 400 ratio, so about 1...

    Clc

    Hi, if the jerky shipper started the bike and now it won't start. He may have twisted
    the throttle while starting it and popped off an air intake tube. If so, when you start
    it, it will sound...

    Found the problem

    The gas was not bad. The hose used from the fuel pump to the filter was slowly
    deteriating and had coated the inside of the tank with a layer of black. The hose
    was also crumbling. I'm going...

    Solutions to howl

    :clap

    Wow, thanks for all the input. Sounds like I'm going for a new fuel filter, since
    this all started just after refilling the tank. Yes, Paul, it does seem to be coming
    from the tank or...

    '91 K75 Howls when hot!

    My bike has 14,000 miles and I changed the spark plugs after having a sort-of
    break down. At 25 miles into the ride, at 75 mph, the engine bogged like I was out
    of gas. Running up the throttle...

    Check for air leaks, you may have blown off an air intake tube between the air box
    and heads.

    Smoothe Test

    I tried Paul's vibration test with a cup of water on the tank of my K75 and it didn't
    work. The cup blew off each time I went through the gears.

    Tire wear

    My CLC gets a consistant 18K miles on the rear and 23K miles on the front. I drive
    quickly, like I stole it, but I keep a watch on the tire pressure. 42 rear and 40 front.

    Spline Lube

    From reading this, I guess I had better take my bike apart and lube the splines.

    Low seat

    Try a CLC. My R1200 CLC has a very low seat height and of course you can even
    use Works or Wilbers shocks to lower it even more. I have a 30" inseam and easily
    flatfoot it with a bend in my...
