Re: GL 1500,89

The consumption of my bike is 5.0-6.5 lt/100km, according to the last 2 year records. I've never gotten that kind of mileage! 5.0 l/100km works out to 56 mpg, 6.5 l/100km is 44 mpg. I get 40-45 mpg, which is from 6.3 to 7.0 l/100 km. Wingadmin I think your lt/100km calculation is not correct. 35mpg...

Re: Pulse Jet Autocycle

If that thing has real pulse jets, it has to be louder than hell. Been looking up stuff, Jim Bede never actually used pulse jets, although he did use conventional jet engines. I think "Pulse" was just a name. I think the helicopters with jets on the rotor tips actually used ram jets, not pulse jets...

Re: Aux input for the cassette deck ??? HELP!

It depends on how the aux circuit is incorporated. On my radio, I intercepted the preamp lines, and ran them through a relay. I can choose either the radio/tape audio, or my audio, depending on the relay. This relay is then switched using a switch (or in my case, an electronic controller that I buil...

Re: winter storage

Unless you have water precipitated out of the fuel, you should be OK putting a good stabilizer in it (I use Marine Sta-Bil, the green stuff, and double the dose) and leaving the fuel in it. Do run the engine with the petcock turned off until it quits, so you don't leave fuel to evaporate in the carb...

Re: Gorilla Glue

It definitely needs water to activate. It foams up to fill any voids, and puts out a bit of heat as it cures. But it is incredibly strong, an excellent bond.

I left the hotel at 9:20, and saw detdrbuzzard (William) packing his bike up getting ready to ride. I decided...hey, 555 is right along my route, why not ride it from bottom to top?

Hm. It appears to be broken. I'll try to get it fixed tonight, but if not, it will likely not be until after we get back from the Gathering.

You don't need a new engine. the shift forks can be replaced along with the shaft.
Correct, but the amount of labor a shop would charge to do this work far exceeds the cost of a new (used) engine.

If you can do the work yourself, and have the time, then yes, they can be replaced.
