  9. Doesn't look bad enough to matter. I might hit it with a sanding disc if you have one or just sandpaper to knock down the cheese gratering effect on the new pads, but even if you do nothing it'll just eat a bit of pad to smooth out the rotor. The work and cost savings of not replacing the rotor totally makes up for any accelerated pad wear.

  10. "Not a real biker." You know the best part about having an unsafe unreliable uncomfortable POS bike? Short parts runs feel adventurous, and no worry about speeding tickets. I had this thought yesterday after I dusted off the Harley to do my errands on. I kinda sorta love that piece of shit. I only did around 20 miles, 2-6 miles at a time, and it was enough. I dig the low crappy idle, thathump thathump burpthump stumblethump...I'm amazed that it never stalls, and that nothing noticeable has vibrated off during my ownership.

  11. Well, I found a metal fabricator in town and had him make three of these…I painted them when I got home. Under $80 for all three. Installing, I repurposed some of the old stuff and used chicken wire to prevent stuff falling in from behind.

  15. A parallel battery is how I "jump start" my intelligent chargers. It can even be a tiny battery, I once used the one out of the alarm panel to do it. I recently did a thread about my generator battery. A week or so on the restorer and it's starting the generator almost like new. I keep forgetting that restorer is sometime magic.

  19. A super strong permanent repair option; Loctite the helicoil and a stud, then use a nut for whatever it's holding.

  20. I wouldn't do it. And if you do, use a teeny-tiny drop of low strength. If it comes out, you can always go back with Loc-tite.

  21. Close to 200,000 miles combined on 2 birds and have never replaced a rotor.

  22. Extracting broken screws is a combination of art, science, tools, and luck. I extract most of them before bringing the ez-out into play, left handed drill bits are quite helpful. Drilling well centered so you can drill a large enough hole is important if the screw is stuck hard, the bigger the hole you make the thicker the ez-out will be which means it'll be harder to break. Also, the bigger the hole is the more chance you have of the screw 'relaxing' and loosening its grip. Heat and oil also help. If it's stuck really hard and you drill very close to perfectly centered you can drill out to the point where all that's left is the thread portion of the screw and it'll pull out as a little coil. In some cases I don't try too hard to get it out, just bore the bitch out and install a nut or heli-coil, or re-thread it larger and use a bigger screw.

  23. I've figured out that spray paint has bug attractant in it. I don't know which chemical it is, but every brand puts it in. Brighter colors have more of it.
