    Flush went well, there was a lot foam in the rear center. Rear brake works better too. Appreciate it 👍

    My riding buddy passed last thanksgiving and had a few bikes. All went to family except for this last one. 1986 Kawasaki Ninja 1000R. Bike is clean with 36000 miles. Corbin seat has a tear in it. His wife has started it and it runs fine as far as I know. She's asking $2500. I only have the one pic right now but if theres any interest I will take some more if wanted and try to answer any questions. Thanks guys. Skip

    Do not order All Balls bearing kits. They use cheapest pile of shit Chinesum so-called bearings. Similar quality bearings go on ebay for couple bucks. Tapered bearings blows as well. Yes, I have been around here that long.

    You say "lady" but I wouldn't want to see what is in it. 😀

    Anyone want a '99 Service Manual? I haven't had my Blackbird for a few years now and it's time to part ways with it. $5 to cover shipping and it's yours!

    Six years ago when my grandson, who lives with us, started seriously thinking about real cars instead of video games. We pulled the covers off so he could see what old iron looked and felt like. We put some air in the circa 1982 model tires. That was probably the last time it was completely uncovered. It is 50 years old now.

    After 5-6 coats of candy and 3 coats of clear. I'm very pleased with results but we are not done yet. It will be wet sanded again and cleared with different clear for even more depth. Today I used UC35, final step will be done with UFC35 clear. All products used today are from House of Kolor.

    Yes, but the rest of us take that well. It's what makes us all men and brothers. You give your best friends the most shit. You should see my best friend talk about me sinking a Jeep, and me about always fucking up GFCI installs (he does commercial work with no GFCIs, always gets confused with them.

    That kinda looks like a dial indicator, but they only measure linear movement in line with the plunger; what is that thing called? Today I played with the adjustments and might have figured out the solution. The mysterious mechanical clutch actuator is kinda odd and it appears that I just need to make some adjustments/tweaks. The cable is too long to get a proper adjustment without having the adjusters all the way out to where they're falling off the threads, but at that point I was able to get a good release and find neutral. I'll take some measurements using your guy's measurement & photo to confirm, then I'll probably have to have a cable made to the right length. Thank you joblock and blackhawk.

    WTF! Ok, let me come up with a rational explanation of how these systems work, that will make sense for everyone, and that I can type in two paragraphs. I'll do that later today.

    I considered the HF one way back and was talked out of it by people who know better. "you can put together something much better for less $". Problem is knowing what to ged and how to put them together. People who know this stuff will say similar about Ring and all the other commercially available stuff, but even those in the know have troubles with their 'custom' systems and the people I know with Ring and other similar stuff seem to have no issues. One of my friends is a contractor specializing in wiring/installing computer and camera shit, his system has been dead for months, but I haven't asked why.

    So it just stops for 5 minutes each time it records?!? I think that would be a deal breaker for me.

    If I were her I might respond with "my friend said it should be worth closer to $4,500" and see what he says. Then probably take what he offers even if it's only the 3,500.

    If you know bearing number you can find quality replacement on ebay or online store. Look for SKF, NTN and couple other brands.

    She didn't price it yet. She was offered $3500 and I told her no. I thought she could get 4-4.5 fairly quickly. She wants it gone, but doesn't feel like giving it away.

    Do you allow democrats to buy these so they can wipe their asses during this fake pandemic they created?

    A tale of three laptops. I was thinking about an SSD for my Dell M6600. It has a 250G hard drive currently, no where near full. I also have an Acer the youngest bricked - no idea what is wrong. Found the Acer power supply and trying to charge it now. I was just looking for a power supply for son no.2's HP g7-2017cl on NewEgg. He abandoned it to me. (I already ordered and received an SSD and battery for it) it powers up. Could use a Win7 CD or similar- ? Then it should upgrade to 10 automatically when MSFT finds it? ...oldest son says put Linux on it. I'd like to install my legal "old" version of AutoCAD. ...built to run mon XP platform. The old Dell 610 @Biometrix sent me has the screen going out finally, but was a real workhorse for many years. Great use Thanks! Can I make Win 10 "run as" XP? I have some small Bluetooth antennae I needed one for my Bose Color II. I got a couple extra if any of you know you need one.

    A 5W LED is gonna make a shit ton more light than 5W incandescent so it's an extremely unfair comparison. Most of my house lights are 6W LED, and they run cooler than the 40 and 60W bulbs they replaced. An LED instrument light is probably less than .5W.

    I VERY rarely write in Spanish, good practice. Hopefully it's not worse than google translator. Luckily the computer figured out what I was doing and switched gears on spelling correction, quite helpful.

    First coats- I mixed interclear sg100 with some Ice Pearls. Measured by eye, less is usually better in situation like this.

    The radiator shop I used growing up would unsolder the tanks and use flat rods to rod the radiator tubes out. I bought a '70 428 Mach I new that always ran hot. When stopped at a light or a train crossing, the dual vacuum advance/retard would run the idle up to 2000 RPM. Finally after a summer run from Louisiana back to the Texas Panhandle, it started blowing steam out of the top tank seam. I took it to Alvin's Radiator to have it repaired, and he said he found 1/3 of the tubes plugged with some strange stuff he had never seen before. He thought the stuff had probably been in there from day one. After he rodded the radiator and reassembled it, that car never overheated again. Running that hot did, however, cause the nylon teeth covering on the timing gears to eventually disintegrate. Luckily the engine wouldn't run, so it didn't plug up the oil pump intake.

    Sigh, as soon as I saw 3 pages of posts, I knew this thread was going to be another Jerry Springer episode, staring Tomek and Oscar, and/or Carlos. Sigh. 😔

    Probably 5-40, I don't think there's a 20 available for diesels. After a lot of research I'm running Rotella T6 5-40 in mine year round. The only real downside I know of with running an oil with a large spread like 5-40, compared to 15-40, is that the additives are more compromised. But according to lots of used oil analysis, despite the 7.3 being hard on oil, that stuff does well even out to pretty high mile change intervals. I won't suggest going past 7k intervals just cuz, but the UOAs I've seen say that it's perfectly safe. The more it leaks or burns and has to be topped off the longer the oil will go. Even tho it turns black & scary looking, replacing even a small amount adds lots of life to the oil. Some big rigs have an on board oil change system that replaces about 2 of the 10-11 gallons of oil in the engine automatically and that small amount about doubles the change interval.

    I'm sure most of you already know this but if any of you don't please be advised rockmeupto125 as a really nice guy. Kung Fu aside I wish I could shake his hand and buy him a beer.

    A quick update since I saw this thread was on the first page here... Removed the tank a few weeks ago and removed the float, petcock, etc. Filled it with a gallon of muriatic acid, about a gallon of CLR, and 100 stainless #8 X 3/4" screws. Made some interesting vapors, and got pretty hot as I was shaking it. Killed a nice sized patch of my back yard grass as well. But it got the tank pretty clean inside, rust appears to be all gone from where I can see inside. Screws were fairly easy to get out thru the float hole. Rinsed it out for about 30 minutes with a hose just running into it, then dried with acetone and filled with fuel after putting back on the bike. Keeping it completely topped off at all times when parked to hopefully keep the rest from reappearing. there's a gas station 1.1 miles from my house so it's easy to keep the tank full after a ride. Been running great, haven't ridden it much but my wife took it out for a few rides with me and she likes it a lot, says it's very comfortable for her and she likes riding it.
