FYI: car NO smoking or leaking on way home.
I wanted to tell people that instead of the tranny fluid smokin up a storm & even leaking a bit on the driveway upon arrival this is what happened on the way home.
Five minutes after I left for home with 800 lb bike on 500 lb trailer, I had to go up a big hill. Then it already started smoking a bit. I thot "Oh no", but after that it was good. I thot it was good bcuz I decided not to push it & keep it in 3rd as much as I could..which was lots. I averaged 50 mph, but I didn't care. That's what I decided..just to keep it maxed at 2100 rpm (usually 2000) & it ran great. Got the gate open & unloaded the bike, & all is good.
Re the no smoke..I thot the following is y:
-boat motor out of back seat
-less gas in tank of bike after a few rides
-took heavy hydraulic jack out of trunk & put on floor behind car's driver seat
-also did the above with heavy tool box
-also, kept rpms constant (2000 give or take 100)
Maybe I shud STILL get a tranny cooler put on that car tho.
Anything goes - doesn't fit any other category!
