The interesting part of this is the Honda OEM belts are made by Gates, just re-branded. What a markup! :!: :!:
most NAPA oil filters are made by WIX,
yup, what a markup.

WIX, like Gates, is a major manufacturer of quality products.

Re: need gps suggestions

Sorry I'm late on posting. I've been on the road at several trap shooting events. I WAS a long time Garmin user. Got tired of them dropping support after a few years forcing an upgrade to a newer model. ????? I have several Garmin GPS units that are 15 years old, and they still update with LTM maps...

Re: '78 GL1000 idling problem

I noted that you "got a kit" to rebuild the carbs. It is pretty well known by those who have "been there" and worked on these a long time, that aftermarket parts for Honda carbs just don't work well. even Kendakk recommends buying only OEM Honda parts... expensive sometimes, but not always. if you b...

Low Profile tires and internal balancing don't work well together.

DO NOT USE SLIME IN MOTORCYCLE TIRES :oops:
i AM A FIRM BELIEVE IN RIDE ON. Have used it years.
You do need to check your tires often for objects stuck in them.
my local tire shop has a sign up on the wall:
we will not change tires that have Slime in the wheels!

Re: Dyna Beads VS Ride on Tire balancing

I like the idea, but have only used Dyna Beads which do a fantastic job for me.

in my lawn tractor, I use Slime liquid for thorns.

wonder if I used the Ride along stuff, the zero turn mower would ride smoother? :lol:
