Re: Randakk's High-Performance Fuel Filter

I just got an ad from Randakks this morning and sent them a reply. Told them if they were not aware of this problem, to go here and see what is being said. Lets see if that does anything.

Re: Dyna Beads vs Counteract Balancing Beads

I had a problem with a tire that seemed to be out of balance and bought a package of Dyna Beads. When I got them, it seems that what I got was a bag of dust, so I never installed them. Upon further observance, what I found was a tire that didn't sit square on the rim. All this started after I was ru...

Re: Carburetor removal from bike

I looked at this post and it made me think about another 96 that was a trike. The one I looked at had been sitting in a garage and the son had tried to get it running. The guy that had owned it had died and it sat for several years. They wanted me to see if I could get it running, but wouldn't let m...

Re: Randakk's High-Performance Fuel Filter

I still have one brand new in the box, Never got around to installing it. Wonder what to do with it now??? Maybe put it on a mower with a second filter after it.

I believe that he is already on his way out. Hope so anyway. He seems to be as ignorant as the dems. Wasn't it him that got cornered in the elevator by a bunch of uneducated young women?

That filter housing looks very similar to anything Kuryakkan. I know that is not spelled correctly but you will know what I mean.

Re: Car show

Back in the 70s , I drove a Honda car that was similar to this. It wasn't my car, but I got to drive it. I remember remarking to the owner that it was just like "driving a motorcycle". Never saw or drove another car that handled like that. Kind of wish I had one of them now for those really rainy da...

khspe2, you don't need to disassemble to change alternators. Pull wiring off old one and attach to the new one. Wiring is seldom bad.

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 insu...

May I suggest timing belts to your list before you try to run it. Not too expensive to buy at NAPA parts store, but great insurance.

Re: Left side not firing

Makes me wonder if he has tried changing plugs. If it idles fine and won't take a sudden load, seems something in ignition is wrong. That is if he really can get it to 80kph. Don't know a lot about the 1100s.

Re: Bloody Hell just look at this !!

I don't suspect that he was going that fast, as the wind screen is still intact from what I can see. Surely the rider would have been thrown forward. And the oil on the road makes it look as though it was pushed to the curb. We will probably never know what really happened. That front wheel surely t...

Re: Additional Lights - Need to be seen

A headlight modulator works better than all the choices you have stated so far. And don't worry about someone thinking you are going to pass them by flashing your headlight. Modulators are way faster than you can do it.

I just happened to stumble back onto this post. I can remember my Dad building his own Heathkit tube tester in the 1950s. He got really interested in television and made his own antenna too. Lost that to hurricane Hazel in the 50s too. I still have two of the oscilloscopes that he made too. I find i...

Re: G1500 Front Break Replacement- Both sides yes or no

I don't see any compelling reason to replace both sides at the same time either. As you said, they operate independently anyway. You do however need to replace both pads in the same caliper at the same time, which shouldn't be any problem since they are sold as a set. And this is what they mean whe...

What does the wiring connect to? BTW Semper Fi! Are those really 7.5 amp fuses?

Re: Need Help, electrical, What are these?

Looks like others have it figured out correctly' What seemed strange to me was the use of, what looked to be, 7.5 amp fuses. Don't think I have ever seen that ampere fuses before.

Re: Bike has set quite a while, check out these plugs

If you had water in the cylinder, then it was on the other side of the rings too. I'd look a little deeper before trying to start. How is the oil look? Hydro lock isn't just on the spark plug side of the pistons. Rings don't stop water when it is sitting for a long time.

Re: Best manual?

Both are fair for some problems, but the Honda manual will work well for 99% of problems. Although not nearly as cheap as the other two. It will pay for itself in time.
