    /5 splines

    I have a /5 that I was thinking of greasing the splines. Never done that since I got the bike. Any chance of getting that done? Would be nice doing it with some experience present. I have it mated to a spirit sidecar which I was going to take off to do some work on the bike anyway. I do have a small leak from the rear drive boot that I wanted to check into anyway. How big a job would this be????

    Mike. Is it a problem if there is no center stand on the /5? I had to remove it to put the subframe on for the hack. Been thinking of getting a floor jack for the bikes anyway. They opened a Harbor freight near me.

    Lift is always nice. I usually put my bikes on the center stand when on the lift. Specially if the back wheel is being removed.

    Cafe time

    Well I finished putting my /6 back together this fall... even cranked it over... but I sure could use some help with fine tuning so I think I'll throw it on the trailer. The seat is being made right now and hopefully it will be on in time for the party. See you all there!

    I will be there Mike! I am thinking of doing the pushrod seals on my RT, but I am not sure if they can be tapped down or if I should just replace them. It has been long enough since I dealt with them (1995) that I am leaning towards just replacing them.
