Re: How Has COVID-19 Affected Your Riding?

We have done some riding since returning forum Az due to the virus. Our biggest issue is weather. Don't care to leave home knowing your going to get beat up by weather. We have a few little loops we can do close to home but it is a pita not to be able to stop for a coffee and lunch

Re: Kids & Cars

No they don't make mechanic's any more. Now they are technication's and unless there is a trouble code for the scan tool to read they are hooped. My son kind of inherited my DIY attitude as he approaches household and other issues. He has changed his own block heater and done some other vehicle main...

Re: What's the safest way?

That is my worry also when selling. In the past I have met the buyer. They are going to want a test ride. Keep their wallet as insurance, Also like the Viking says bring it out show it and put it away

Re: I Made a Boo Boo

I have a similar issue, The ramp to load/off load the bike from the 5th wheel toy hauler is wide enough ( 4 Ft). But there are those couple of feet when unloading where I can't touch the ground that gives me the willies. Fortunately by the time I get to that point the back wheel is on the ground

Re: Spring start-up issues...

Yes wait on the new battery. I have see batteries on lawn mowers etc that were so bad the had to be removed/completely disconnected before the bike/mower would run. They seem to suck up all the voltage being made.

Be sure to. Roll it over by hand to make sure everything is correct and a piston doesn’t hit a valve.

Re: Cam pulley

Never had one apart, but I would check the how to articles. Are you changing pulleys, if the other side is correct and this cam is correct I would say your one spine out. Check the how to section.

Re: Suzuki Burgman CV transmission video

This set up is pretty durable. I run a John Deer S690 combine in the fall. This system is what supplies the entire machine, I think theses are around 500 HP machines. I could be wrong but it sure looks like the same set up.

Re: Not riding? How do you keep yourself busy?

We are on day 8 of our mandatory border isolation and the supplies are still holding up. It got warm enough to start on that heater core( no heated shop) I worked on it for about 4 hours and still haven't got the old core out. After we get past this border isolation we will still restrict our moveme...

Re: How to Check your oil: You're doing it WRONG!

Read the posts and watched the vidio, as this was the opposite of how I was checking oil. Didn't make sense to check the oil after the engine was run. Then read the manual. Went and checked the oil on the cold engine, right near the end of the dip stick. Started and ran the engine and after waiting ...

Re: Not riding? How do you keep yourself busy?

We are returning snow birds this year. When we left we had a trailer full of food so we packed lunch and ate on the road, only stopping for fuel. Get in and get out. Now that we are home, I have a heater core to change which may be a challenge. We wonder around the yard as we live in the country and...

We are in good health so far on day 4 and don't expect any issues. The bike is still in the toy hauler and will be for a few days yet. NT much...

Re: Riding in wind

I ride in the wind a fair amount of the time. Quite often two up, the wife will tuck her head in so the wind doesn't pull her head off. I also put my foot on the Hwy peg on the wind side this seems to act kind of like a rudder. I set the cruise and look farther down the road and let it lean. I have ...

Everything is stock. Plugs all look good. No oil consumption. Don't want to start an oil saga but am using rotell 15/40 as it meets the jaso ma rating as per my manual. And yes it is worth nothing as a sale or trade ride till she drops

I made my goal

When the riding season started this spring I had a goal. My goal was to hit the 200000 Km mark on my 05 gl1800. I needed about 6100 km this summer to hit the mark. Some guys may say that that is not a big distance to travel over the summer but I am happy with that considering my part time job pretty...

Re: Is Spring finally coming?

Here in my end of the world we have had some nice days. I have fired up the ride but the large snow drift in front of the shed is fighting the sun and I think winning. Bit to early for riding here as there is so much junk on the roads at the corners, I have faith though.
