dazed and confused

Can someone help a confused individual(dosen't take much these days)? Changing fork springs to progressives and can't figure out how much oil to add. Remember something about 2oz less than stock, 9 1/2 oz, right . Also something about measuring from the top of the collapsed fork? Thanks

Re: Alternator conversion question

Thanks for posting the pictures. I have a possibly stupid question, I see that you have e few circuits running off the positive bus, but I don't see any fuses. Do you have one main fuse for the bus or are you hiding them or am I blind?

Re: Click from the rear

Thanks guys, much appreciated. I plan on doing the rear brakes here soon, so while I've got stuff torn apart, maybe I'll get in there and do the bearing as well. When you say "maybe I'll get in there" this has me worried. A word of advice, if I may. Before doing any work on the back wheel I would r...

Re: Click from the rear

Check the rear wheel bearing on the drive side. It's a common problem.

Re: Front engine case

First use a center punch to get the drill bit on center. Next use left hand twist drill bit, set your drill to reverse and with luck the broken bolt will come out as you drill into it. http://www.harborfreight.com/left-hand-drill-bit-set-13-pc-61686.html I know those bolts are small, just take your ...

5 amps is that a typo or is that for each horn? The wolo horns{2] needs a single 15 amp fuse or a 7.5 amp fuse for each horn. Either way your fuse is too small
