Re: Blackwing fork brace availability

I have heard great things about the blackwing fork brace but I find it hard to find, anyone have a line on one? I'm tired of the floppy front end. Just curious, how many miles on the bike since there was a fork rebuild and hear bearing torque checked or new head bearings installed? I ask because I ...

The optical facets in the housings are different for right and left hand rule of the road. You will have to change the headlamps.

Re: Tire repair

Thanks, guys! I have TMPS in both my bikes. I don't want to risk ruining a sensor with the Ride On product.. Has any one had experience with this? Ride-On is TPMS friendly but is not recommended if your sensors are not sealed. Although using Ride-On with these types of sensors does not always creat...

Patch it on the inside.
Get rid of the beads(in both tires
Use https://www.ride-on.com/
I have to ask, Why get rid of the beads?
Not needed with RideOn. It is a sealant as well as a balancer.
Been using it for many years.
RideOn has formulas for about anything on/off road.

Re: 2015 Maintenance

Just a suggestion, return the K&N filter and get the OEM.
The claims of better performance with a K&N do not ring true. Over priced and not as good a filter as the OEM!
HiFlo=less filtering!

Re: put away for winter

Any stabilizer should be added to an almost empty tank, Then fill the tank. Then ride the bike for about 10/15 minutes to ensure the mix gets to the injectors or carb, whichever you have.

Use it for fuel stabilizer for winter storage in the trike and all lawn equipment. Other than that there is no need to use it. Directions on the can tells the amount to use.

Re: Just wanted to know - warranty issue

Mother Honda claims bent/worn shifter forks + "other" tranny failures can be caused by "hard" sifting with heel/toe shifters.
Yes, it applies to extended warranty also.
