Re: trike a 1500

putting it back to 2 wheels is just about impossible, so much is removed. but, it could be done, if all the parts removed were kept on the shelf, but it would be a long task, and expensive. But, there are slide on kits that can let him have both, it will be 4 wheels, not 3. The Voyager kit is one of...

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 ...

Re: why I choose a car tire

If you choose one of the car tires with a more rounded profile, and you keep it pressured up in the 40-55 psi range, it is hard to tell that you are not using a "motorcycle tire". the flatter profiles though have a bad tendency to want to climb out of ruts, but at the same time, they totally ignore ...

Which one do you think is ignored the most?

Exhaust System, Handlebar Height, Helmets, Headlights?

Here in OkieLand all but helmets are ignored.

you didn't say how much you paid for that bike, but in the condition you have reported, it is worth about $500 as a parts bike. If the plastics are in really good condition, then fix it up.

Re: Insurance

Here in the states, if our vehicles are not insured, our license plates are revoked, and that happens quickly when the insurance company reports that lapse to the state.

not good if we happen to catch the interest of an LEO.

only set it when cold, the shocks get hot while riding, and that increases the PSI, do NOT let it out, leave it alone....

I set mine for 57 psi and never look at it again. if it don't bottom out, it is okay

the throttle must remain in Idle position though.

if you open the throttle, it cancels the FI mode light sequence.

Good to hear positive experience with Rotella, , ,was that the T-5 15W/40? or did you use a different weight?
2 years ago, I went with T5 in 10w30, this year I went with T6 in 5w40 because I wanted to avoid the AGR problem at colder temp startups. ( 01-05 )
