Re: The idiots are out there

Here in Florida, the county does it. My last wreck was from hitting that grass, at night, just after passing a car going the other direction, and on a curve. $5000 damage and a broken ankle and many scrapes, after being high sided. They don't care, its not them. I got repaired and healed up. My ins...

Re: The idiots are out there

I believe discharging grass clippings on roadways is illegal in all States. Past couple years my rides in Wisconsin I seen residents doing it more often. One fair turn had fresh grass clippings & THE DUDE still mowing. I felt my tires lose traction but not entirely. Slowed down and as I passed THE D...

Re: Anyone had this... PLEASURE?

So, why did you take it apart? What O rings did you need to replace? Did you see the pix I posted? During last Sundays ride we felt little sprinkles of water on our right legs. Jokingly I said some mouse took a pee but I kept an eye on the temp gauge. Seen the needle rise into uncharted terratory I...

Re: Removing Water Pump question.

Also, from what I've read you want to drain the oil as well before removing the pump. If not you are going to have a mess. I don't know if this is true because when I recently did mine I went ahead and drained both oil and coolant, but I was just going by the other threads I have read on the topic....

YUP, same here, been there dun'dat.
Left choke on about 1/2 inch and hit the expressway... about 20 miles at 65 mph a couple times, no issues.
I use Iridium plugs which might make the difference with that Iitty-Bitty center electrode.

Not many tires make that rather distinctive sound.

I nearly lost my fuse box from those THIN blades not making solid contact.
JUST BE SURE they're snug.
Loose fit = poor contact = heat.

BUT through my situation you'll be glad to know the fuse box will withstand some heat.

Re: The idiots are out there

I've seen those '3 flash' brake lights.
Besides the attention flash, makes me think I'm seeing several vehicles stopping.

Definitely an attention getter.
