Local Cleveland show

Just in case anyone is local to the Cleveland area, and wants to check out our show, this is the closing weekend for a musical I've been working on for the last few months. It's fun, family-friendly, and good entertainment: https://www.cleveland.com/north-olmsted/index.ssf/2018/05/dover_players_comm...

Re: GL1100 engine removal & missing bolts

Hi, The engine is completely out of the bike, so I will definitely take your list into account when putting it back in. What do you mean with "oil screen"? Where is that sitting? You definitely want to clean the oil screen while the engine is out of the bike, as it's a pain to get to when it's in t...

Re: 1994 Honda Pacific Coast

We've got one. It's a great bike! It should not be at all twitchy. I suspect that might be tires, could also be old suspension. The cam seals on them tend to harden and start leaking - your first indication will be oil leaking out the bottom, and if you follow it up you'll find it leaking from the c...

Re: Moto Solutions RainCoat windshield coating

I use the RainX on my cages. It works very nicely. The water just beads up and rolls off. I still run my wipers, but very seldom more than just the slowest intermittent setting. RainX works great on glass, but don't use it on acrylic/polycarbonate/plexiglass windshields! They make a special RainX j...

Re: Fuel cap vented or not ??

The cap has a vent that will resist both vacuum and pressure - to a certain point. When running and fuel is used up, it will allow some air in, but there will be some vacuum - so when you open the cap to fill up after riding for a while, you'll hear air rushing in. If the fuel heats up and the air e...

Are you sure that is exactly where it is coming from? Fluid leaks can often masquerade their source, with it appearing to come from the lowest point.

Re: Leaks after winter storage

Your water pump seal has failed. That little hole is called the "telltale hole" or "weep hole" and is designed to allow the coolant to leak out instead of contaminating your crankcase oil.
