Re: do I have a dead battery or ?

Might not be a bad idea to check all of the grounding connections, if you haven't already done so.

O-ring kit

I am in need of a particular O-ring for something around the house and thought it might be more practical to buy a kit that'll contain what I may need for the Wing too. There are both standard and metric kits available, but I spotted this one on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/ABN-Assortment-419-Piec...

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.
I read through the table contents page of this book. Looks like great stuff. Will order it!

For the timing belts, you could find Gates T275 timing belts, on EBay for reasonable prices like 20-50 dollars
Just checked them out. Great prices, and free shipping too! :o

Anything below 50 and any long-ish rides are out. I ride for the pleasure of riding, and if I'm not enjoying it, what's the purpose? Be...

Re: How cold will ya'll ride?

At the start of winter I ride down to 25 F (because the frost is not in the ground yet so the roads don't freeze). At the end winter I don't ride until it is 32 F.

I believe the pump he is referring to is Carter part# P72190. I found the pump and strainer on Amazon for about $40 for both.

Re: Winter is coming, but not yet!!

Hang in there Al! Back when I was working, at the start of winter (wouldn't do it after because the ground could still be frozen), I would ride my Wing to work until it got below 25 degrees, so you still have plenty of riding time left..lol

Re: Bike will not start

We replaced the fuel filter and then found the diaphragm would not hold vacuum, so we rebuilt it with a kit. Still wouldn't start. Voltage across the battery was 12.3 at rest and 10.3 when engaging the starter.

Re: Gas mileage on my 2000 wing

The biggest mpg improvement that I have seen on my 99 is keeping tire pressure around 2 pounds above maximum and keeping the rpms at or below 3000. If I don't I get between 32 and 34. If I do I get 38 to 42.
