  1. There are a bunch of LED tail light options, most with built in turn signals, on aliexpress.com. I shopped and then decided I really did like the stock light and even turn signals. One signal has a bad lens so I just ordered OEM replacements on Aliexpress for $16.
  2. When you get to under $3k, you might have takers. That might even be pushing it. Nicely upgraded bikes, with FI, sell around that range. The low miles is probably not meaningful to any XX buyer, they last forever anyway.
  3. The ideal place for one of my bikes is probably going to become the space behind the compressor, so some sort of roller may help. Right now the only reason for the roller would be to work on them. But first, I need to put down pavers or concrete so the Jeep top stand can get out of there and into the back yard.
  4. The downside I see to that one is that it's for the sidestand only. So *working* on the bike that way might suck. And yes, it can be modified, but by then you might as well build something or buy a different one.
  5. This is what suggests fraud. Partly because of the decline part, and partly because he was willing to pay hundreds in fees for doing that.
  6. Accurate. My brain just learned to shift about one second after pulling it.
  7. We need a professional root cause analysis here.
  8. What.The.Fuck Who the hell would even think that a check to buy a vehicle is going to fly?
  9. That's Monkey yellow. Did you paint that? Did you clean it with acetone first?
  10. A motorcycle shop I used to go to had one of those for display bikes. If the bike doesn't have rails, they would put a piece of plywood under it that had foam glued to one side.
  11. I'd love to pop the wheels off right now. And it's also just awkward to move it around when it's mostly disassembled. Or to stop your work to move it and gain space when needed. Goddammit I may be talking myself into a welding project later.
  12. That company has dozens of them listed, by specific motorcycle types and models, just to get the search results. The one in the first link really needs a strap if it's being used for anything bigger than a dirt bike.
  13. I'd love to have a rolling stand for what I'm doing right now, but didn't even think the weldable steel and caster cost was worth it. $350??? Fuck that. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B075RPGSZL/ref=psdc_404644011_t2_B016Z04NRO https://smile.amazon.com/Venom-Motorcycle-Center-Cruiser-Yamaha/dp/B016YZV4IQ/ref=pd_day0_hl_263_4/145-5800237-0593458?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B016YZV4IQ&pd_rd_r=ea838be2-cd0b-4f7e-bb4a-82c0e031abbb&pd_rd_w=2ZeYT&pd_rd_wg=v4MkR&pf_rd_p=ad07871c-e646-4161-82c7-5ed0d4c85b07&pf_rd_r=7Y34SZSS0DKB4KZY6H44&psc=1&refRID=7Y34SZSS0DKB4KZY6H44 https://smile.amazon.com/Venom-Motorcycle-Cruiser-Davidson-Electra/dp/B016YZW5GQ/ref=pd_day0_hl_263_7?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B016YZW5GQ&pd_rd_r=ea838be2-cd0b-4f7e-bb4a-82c0e031abbb&pd_rd_w=2ZeYT&pd_rd_wg=v4MkR&pf_rd_p=ad07871c-e646-4161-82c7-5ed0d4c85b07&pf_rd_r=7Y34SZSS0DKB4KZY6H44&psc=1&refRID=7Y34SZSS0DKB4KZY6H44
  14. That's the joke. Sub-joke: In my brain, "any" phone is something made in the last two years.
  15. $15 shipped. This doesn't work properly with a Series 4 Watch. If you have the sound turned off, no big deal. It just takes longer to charge. It stops and restarts charging frequently with a 4 (works fine with Moriah's S3). If the sound is on, it bings every time it starts charging. It will wirelessly charge any phone and the Watch. I supposed it might charge other magnetic wireless watches? Dunno. It is this item: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NVBYBFT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  16. Once the thermostat is open, it's open. An engine that runs at 220 will not run cooler if you shove a 160 thermostat into it. So if you hate that your bike reaches 204 because the thermostat isn't fully open could indeed run cooler with one that opens sooner, but 204 isn't an issue.
  17. What is "run cooler?" This reminds me of a conversation with a friend about his Jeep. He asked if mine overheated all the time in summer, and I said no. He asked what I did to prevent it. I was confused. He thought that running 205-210 was "overheating," when it's perfectly safe for it to go above 240. What temperature, exactly, concerns you?
  18. What problem are you trying to solve? 99% sure a 1998 Civic thermostat would fit, and you can probably get different temps. Caution: Going to a "cooler" thermostat could actually make things worse. This isn't as straightforward as you seem to be assuming.
  19. If you use the acetone and the torch at the same time, I guarantee you will solve the problem.
  20. I've seen anywhere from 22 to 50+ MPG. Gone 250 miles on a tank once, even with a little twisty riding. I'm not understanding how a pressure regulator would change your fuel consumption without making the bike run like shit.
  21. There's a big lean spot just off idle and then another one up higher. The old bike had a simpler enrichener that just added fuel at certain RPM. It added around 7HP and took out the lean spot off idle.
  22. Certainly not going to be able to hold 170.

    Oil additive ?

    I don't believe in mineral spirits. They are mineral evolution.
