Re: putting the rear tire back on

The smaller threads you mentioned SHOULD BE a grease imprint on the lead-in pilot shaft of that bolt. Once you get the bolt hole lined up as close as possible and there's no binding while turning, reverse the bolt via fingers and FEEL the threads bump every rotation. Then start the bolt. HOPEFULLY t...

I know that this is a common problem since there is a lot of posts about it but 108,000 miles on my 92 from 1992 to 1998, and about 50,000 on my 98 SE from 1999 to 2003 and I never had a shiftier seal leak.
My 91 didn't start leaking until around 175,000 miles.

I went from the '83 GL1100-A to GL1500-I and when I test road the 1500 one of my tests was putting it up on it's C-stand. Well my 1100 was quite a chore due to low air in the rear shock (might be your problem) and week left rear spring-shock, so I similarly hoisted up that 1500. The seller said I li...

Re: Darkside Tech: Using Car Tires on a Motorcycle Rim

So I guess the owners manual caution against using car tires is just a conspiracy with the manufactures of motorcycle tires? I would be concerned about how they handle on curves. Anyone have feedback on that? I'm not a CD (Curve Demon) but I can attest to the Austone holding the road quite well at ...

I had to ask. Singeing was the word I believe you were wanting, but it sure looks odd with that "e" in there, doesn't it?
Auto-Correct seems to have a mind of its own.

Understandable about the leak potential.
Bonding really shouldn't matter since the moving parts are in suspension.

The vac lines look intimidating but can be kept under control. 1st, PICTURES! 2nd. Only disconnect the section your working on and move them sparingly so they plop back where they want to go. 3rd.

Synthetic Delo 15w40 should work fine and should last a little longer. Hence justifying the higher cost. I'd use it but have a 20 gallon stock of dino-Delo due to "On Sale Now" promos.

Any tool is only as good as it's operator.
..as long as the operator uses said tool correctly.
Had to add.

Eg: using a flat blade screwdriver as a chisel.
Wallering a hole larger with a drill bit.
Using a blow torch to light a cigerette (singing eyebrows).

I have not heard of anyone getting clutch slippage using it. But why take the EXPENSIVE chance, use it sparingly.
