Re: GOOD LORD!

I understand about revenue and all but what has been popping up lately is ridiculous.
Google has been inserting advertisements every sentence or two in news articles where in the not too recent past it was every paragraph or two.
Does Google have a huge fine coming?

Re: Blackwing fork brace availability

After nearly a month of riding I can faithfully say, I LIKE IT! :P Probably the worst truck to follow at highway speeds are those 'Portable Parking Lots', they throw a lot of multi-directional vortexes. I can say even those trucks have minimal affect. Side wind gusts are still a treasure to endure b...

Re: Intermittent vibration

If the lower pressure has no results, alternator bumpers or one cylinder is weak thus causing a consistent RPM vibration. I have found a situation on other forums where spark plug boot one or some resistor(s) go weak causing in the grips vibration. One rider found a loose screw inside the plug boot,...

Re: Intermittent vibration

Hi Wingers, I really appreciate all of the comments and suggestions with my vibration issue. No, the new front wheel bearings did not fix the problem. Since the vibration is more pronounced in the grips, I keep leaning toward front wheel. So I tried putting 46lbs. of air in the front tire. No help ...

Re: Front fork spring upgrade

Re: Missing and almost died

I had an incident today of my Wing dying while riding. Stopped at a quick-mart for a soda, was not more than 10 minutes then left. 5 miles down the road my Wing just cut off. Did a quick pull over and went through the last startup routine, key and side stand and tried restarting, nothing. Battery go...

Re: Chatter at less than 2500 rpm

After just completing a 2100 mile trip with friends, including hundreds of miles in the twisties of southern Ohio and West Virginia, I was finally able to narrow down the rattle or chatter that my old girl has always had for me. In any gear or speed, at less than 2500 rpm it makes a noise that I am...

Re: Different front progressive springs?

Figured that is what I read on your bike, trike. I inserted 2 wheels for mine, just to clarify. About 2 weeks ago I hit a series of expansion strips in the roadway, felt almost like potholes, rattles the whole bike badly. Since then the front springs bottom out on the mildest of bumps. I look throug...

Re: Minimizing effects of ethanol

I know that running ethanol is bad for the carbs(not sure about fuel injection) and always run 91 octane in all our vehicles. On my '82 GL I've been trying really hard to avoid ethanol but its difficult since not all the 91 will specifically say its ethanol free. I've starting asking the store mana...

Re: This is the most difficult bike I have ever worked on.

I have to agree. My wife's Burgman is a bit of a nightmare to take apart, but nothing touches the PC800 Pacific Coast, which had an entire CHAPTER in the service manual dedicated to how to remove (and in what order) various body panels. It literally had "item you want to work on" and then...

Re: Oil being thinned by fuel?

Clutch level never changes, forgot to add that to the main post. GOOD CATCH.

Tho the bike does run rich, just might be a high float.
I know that if there is a rich mixture the extra droplets do slide past the rings.
Since the oil goes bad slowly that is a high possibility.

Viable answers only please. I have no interest in immature, sarcastic and pointless rhetoric. Is it possible for fuel to get into the crankcase other than intake to cylinders then past the rings? My issue is the oil is only lasting 1500 to 2000 miles. I have used 4 different manufactures of oil and...
