dyna bead easy install

I used the dyna beads in both of my tires and trying to put those beads in the valve stem was a little challenging at first because if you try to gently pour them in, they just clog right at the valve stem. I remembered what the guy told me when I bought them, he said they use a drill for vibration....

Re: GL1200 won't run, backfires

Wow, that could take a while to diagnose. Even on some cars I've had it can be very frustrating. It almost has to be an electrical issue from what you've described. Almost have to check every electrical connection on that bike , including all grounds , gauges, wire harnesses. etc.. How long does it ...

But he didn't get a scratch. Ever since he told me that, I've never even thought about wearing anything bu...

speaker replacement

What brand of speakers will fit into the original Clarion speaker housings. I ordered a nice set of Infiniti's from Crutchfield 3.5 inch size, and they only have two tabs for mounting instead of four, and they wouldn't line up with the diagonal dimension of 4.5 inches. I was wondering if anybody kne...

Moly 60 paste

I recently discovered that Moly 60 paste is no longer available from Honda. The rear splines are to be lubed with this item, and the substitutes such as the Moly 77 does not have the same temperature capacity as the Moly 60.

Both bikes are 82 Aspencade's, with the first one I took $42.00 worth of aftermarket junk plastic chrome to the scrap yard. Why do guys buy...
