Re: New EPA mandate for more Ethanol in 2019

I was at Speedway gas station this weekend and now they have a sticker on their E15 pumps stating to be used in 2001 and newer cars and flex fuel cars but not to be used in boats and mowers. Amazing what the government and big business will do for money with no care to the consumer.

Re: what do you use to lift your trike for service and inspection










I use ramps and hydraulic jackstands. If I need to raise the front of the trike I have a 1500 lb ATV jack I utilize for lifting under the engine. With the jackstands I can raise them up to 26 inches to work underneath.

Re: Trike conversion rear tire

When I had my 03 Suzuki lc1500 I replaced the rear tire with a car tire. At the time I was running a Voyager kit. Made a world of difference around town and on the highway. The bike no longer had a tendency to follow the cracks in the road and the ride on the highway at speed was a lot smoother and ...

Re: Armrest

If you purchase the armrests that mount to the seat grab handles one of the things you have to look out for is that the bracket has clearance for the passenger backrest heater knob. Some brands such as Khromeworks makes a set for the wing that fits the comfort package with no issue. If you get a set...

Re: Cleaning front tire

Another good polish is Flitz a metal polish you can get at some auto stores and Ace hardware. It works just as well as the higher end mag polishes and makes it easier to clean when they get dirty as it has some silicone in it. If you use a powerball or cone with a drill it looks exceptional.

Re: Front caliper rubbing brake pads

On the left side if you dont align the axle line correctly the caliper bracket depending on how far off the alignment is will rub on the rotor and sound like pads rubbing.

Re: Flasher Issue

If you go to CRC electronics cleaner be careful not all are plastics safe. Same with silicone spray some have acetone in them. I prefer to use Radio Shack tuner cleaner and lube which is plastic safe. A can will last a long time and work on all of your wings switches. https://www.radioshack.com/prod...

Re: Drilling out cylinder lock

I cant remember which way if its left or right. Turn the key and then reach under the trunk and pull the handle to manually open the trunk. Turning the key will just not pop the trunk. And the key only turns so far in the lock.
