Low tech solution

Postby spiralout » Fri Apr 03, 2015 1:24 pm



Just got done changing the fork oil in my '96. The largest syringe I could find only held 10cc and I wasn't wanting to refill it 37 times for each fork so I came up with this. Empty Sriracha hot sauce bottle and the tube that was on the bottle of acid that came with my last battery. Worked perfectly. I had to empty almost half a bottle of hot sauce into something so I could use the bottle. Closest thing I saw was an almost empty squeeze bottle of mustard so I rinsed that out and refilled with the sriracha and I'm not telling anyone in the house :twisted: :twisted:
