Re: Back rest opinions

I have found that on all things Kuryakin, that the chrome does not last long. Have taken most of it off. The Saddleman Seat with the through the seat backrest is very comfortable.

Re: How to rebuild your front master cylinder

Take some tin lead solder and mash it into the groove till it is full. File it till it is the same size as the shaft. Seal should slide over it. Use a large size solder to fill the groove. Use this method on aircraft struts, should work here too.

Re: Directions for best scenic route

It is not hard to do, and you can get the belts at your local NAPA. The directions on how to do it are here on this site, and you will learn mo...

Re: Directions for best scenic route

Don't know too much about scenic route, but old route 17 runs most of your trip. Did your mechanic replace the timing belts? Do you know when they were last changed? Could be very expensive if this was missed in maintenance.

Kinda looks like your engine is a 90 model. 89 started with 2100101, 90s started with 2200101.

Re: 1994 1500 vibration at low speeds

Try getting on the bike by yourself, and shift your weight to one side. That way the bike should lean over so that the weight rides more to the side of the tire instead of the center. Do you still hear the noise? Feel the vibration? Wonder if it is not just the tire tread.

Re: Strange issue with starter motor on 1500

I had a very similar problem with my starter. Mine was caused by the starter button sticking so that the starter couldn't be stopped. It eventually burned up the brush wiring after it ruined the whole motor. It seems that by spraying that switch with electrical contact cleaner, it works fine for a w...

Re: The idiots are out there

Makes you kind of wish that you could have a recoilless 106 mounted on your wing. May slow some of them down for a while. Makes me wonder what are these people thinking when they get in a car or truck and do this. Also need a hammer on each side of the handlebars to work over the lane changers too.

Re: totaled 1994 1500 se

Was that insurance price to repair it or to replace it? I realize you said totaled, but did your insurer say that. It makes a real difference. Seems that you were not injured? May well be a repair estimate.

Re: What's Happening Today?

The only thing good about LA was the Busch brewery at that time. 60s. Don't think I lost anything by leaving Calif as soon as I could. They probably still think that I owe them taxes. Didn't see what people think is so great about that place either then and still can't see what people think of it no...
