Re: The Biker Wave...

I wave to everyone I have time, and a spare hand to do so. I thought it was funny, a while back when I was taking a class to get my license, the instructor said "I wave to everyone on two wheels!" Guess he didn't care for trikes.

Re: timming belt tensioners

I found that pdf document on the 1200 DIY. http://www.sdb-e.com/TENSIONER/TENSIONER-REBUILD-JCS.pdf I did the 10 mm stud mod (mod #6, i think it seemed to be the easiest), with a little mod of my own mixed in. I drilled out the existing bearing from the back, with a drill bit just big enough to get...

Re: Passed my MSF course today

Congrats, now get out and ride! Once you get comfortable with your big bike, make it a point to enroll in an advanced rider course. I have been "reriding" (after a 30 year pause) for 8 years now and attended such a class last year. I am a GWRRA member, so I went to their class (ARC). There was lots ...

H6M replacement with LED recommendation?

I just discovered that the PO installed H6M bulbs in the non-standard cornering lights he put in my 1999 Aspencade. If I wanted to go with an LED bulb replacement instead, what is a good one to buy?

Re: Need Parts

I've only used them once, so far, but I had good luck at Babbitt's when I needed parts. Their pricing seems competitive, and shipping was quick. Wish they went back further than 2005. Just at Babbits and they went back to 1977 on Honda for parts, were you looking for something specific? No, but whe...

Re: Need Parts

I didn't mean anything bad about Cyclemax, it just brings me to something I should be thinking about all of the time, "is this purchase the most practical use of my dollar?". Even though I reap the benefits of PRIME purchases, I very seldom purchase bike parts from them.

I put an E4 on the front about 6 months ago and did the rear a few weeks ago. There is a little noise when cornering, but not bad.

Re: Death wobble

I had a similar issue with my 88 and it turned out on the top nut above the head bearing was just a little loose. Tightened it about 1 flat on the hex and it was rock solid again!

Re: Need Parts

I like CycleMax, but, like you said, the shipping is pretty high, so I only use them when I have a relatively large number of items to order.

I finally, after a number of aftermarket add-ons to help the ride, bit the bullet and bought a new seat from the dealership. Got it for $225, which I thought was a great deal!

This and MANY other topics are covered in depth in David Hough's excellent Proficient Motorcycling: The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well, which I highly recommend.
