Re: How to use a motorcycle lift

Re: How to use a motorcycle lift

If it is not too much trouble, would somebody be willing to take a few photos of their 1500 on a jack like this? I borrowed a jack from a buddy that seems to be identical to the one in the original post. I am just really curious to see where the pads of the jack will need to sit in relation to the (...

Re: Resurrecting Grandpa's Wing

I pulled the fuel pump last night and will be draining/siphoning out the remaining fuel soon. Actually looks pretty good in there considering age, looks like stabil was added, but I didn't want to chance pumping trash thru the pump and into the carbs.

Resurrecting Grandpa's Wing

It has been stored for years in a heated garage, but was very dirty. I can remember when he bought the bike new and it was treated li...
