Re: Bloody Hell just look at this !!

Just WOW! Look at the surface area at the break in the fork. Not much holding that together. Especially for the forces involved at the "fork". IMHO a defect in design.

Re: Maybe a silly air ride question

Unloaded max pressure is 57psi by the manual. That can push the 2 up loaded pressure up into the 70 psi range. Don't go by the loaded psi.

Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

Most of the rural crossings here don't have stop signs. They just have a crossing sign which isn't the same as a stop sign. In fact I can't remember seeing a crossing with an actual stop sign.

Re: 1978 gl 1000 leaking carbs

If there are crossover tubes then you for sure have 1100 carbs. I just replace those seals with nitrile o'rings from a set that I got from Harbor Freight. I don't remember the size but they were included in the set. I think the oring set cost about 6 bucks. I hope you realize you will have to separa...

Re: Dyna bead installation, the easy way.

Interesting! I use a longer tube on the bottle, fill tube with beads, remove tube from bottle and blow beads by mouth into tire. Have to remember to exhale not inhale. lol

Re: I'm feeling dark... new Austone Taxi Tire

Admin, I also tried the Austone ct. After almost 600 miles I removed it and went back to an Avon. There were numerous reasons that I didn't like it. (later) The deciding negative factor was, above 85 mph the bike felt unstable as though the tire was expanding as the rpm increased. I could actually f...

Re: Goldwing 1100i camshaft oil seals

My rememberer might be mistaken but the right side rear doesn't use a seal due to the need for lubricating the fuel pump.

Re: Dyna Beads vs Counteract Balancing Beads

Thanks for the report. I am hesitant to use Dynabeads again. With the last set of tires, Avon Venums, the beads turned to powder. As in no round beads left at all. These were recycled beads from the previous tires. On the new set of E4s I am using weights again because of this.
