  1. Well look at you two quick little wheeler dealers! I can live without it. I’ll just take my cut of the commission and I’ll be on my way.
  2. I keep coming back to look at this ad. I don't think I've ever worn a large on my melon, always XL. I notice the other helmet you are selling is an XL. Does this one fit you? Is Nolan L like an XL from anyone else?
  3. Size? I've been liking the smell of Old Spice "Bearglove" for the last two sticks.
  4. Thread title had me thinking this was about Dave filling his cars. Never heard of Houdini product before, will keep an eye out for it. I like that a locksmithing product is named after an escape artist. I once bought some graphite powder lube for a sticky gas cap lock and accidentally dropped way too much in, what a mess. Key would not go into lock fully until I extracted the plug of powder at the bottom.
  5. What action/changes were involved in the "dial down"? Was it hot or cold when these changes occurred?
  6. When you can't get it to run, have you pulled the plug? Is it wet or dry?
  7. Nice tool strap! Looks tidy and and well sorted for the age/miles. GLWS if you consider parting out I'd like to put dibs on your aftermarket rear shock. I don't think you mentioned above what shock you have on it.
  8. Maybe it holds some additional fuel? He's talking 6 gallons in that write up. Actually maybe the risers are hollow and hold a gallon.
  9. Wicked good, thanks. It's too fuckin nice out today so I'm going to ride with the pussy hairs. Will R/R the pads as per your suggestions soon. Thanks
  10. Thanks hawk, good suggestions. Will keep my eyes open for z drivers. Sound handy for lots of tight jobs. Seems like I'll be removing caliper so getting at the pad pin & cover will not be tight and my silencer can stay where it is. Thanks all the same.
  11. Thanks Slappy, sometimes the truth hurts. When you say pull caliper, do you mean remove completely from bike and clean it up on the bench? Or could this be done without too much headache while removed from caliper mount but caliper still attached to brake lines? From what I read on here before I started this thread was a lot of guys having issue with air in lines after bleeding, etc.
  12. Hi, So there's maybe a pussy hair thickness of meat left on the rear pads on my bike. They don't make any foul sounds and seem to work pretty good, there's just hardly any pad left. I picked up some EBC HH's and put on my grubby clothes to swap them out when I realized that my seemingly fully extended pistons are really crudded up. I'm not wanting to push them crudded up pistons back into my caliper and risk fuckin up the seals and/or introducing crud to the system. What's the best way to clean such pistons? I sprayed with brake cleaner and scrubbed with an old toothbrush but have limited access (rear wheel still on, caliper still on bike). Any tricks to get pin cap and pin out without removing left exhaust silencer? I don't think I have any screw drivers small enough to get in there as is and was hoping to not have to remove silencer for risk of fucking up seals. thanks
  13. Thanks lads, I'm really lichen these plant suggestions and will be sticking some in my nemesis.
  14. Any suggestions? I hate mowing the fucking hills and would prefer some low maintenance semi attractive ( read semi very loosely) vegetation or otherwise. Obviously I'm in Nova Scotia so something with big enough balls to survive winter is required. Fuck mowing hills.
  15. Is anyone still using this or are others using something else these days? I've always used an excel file then an app that went dead, but am now exploring other options to track/log maintenance schedule items. Oh, above link is dead but I think I found the same program here: http://touringmotorcyclists.com/tech_tips/download.html but M$ is warning me the .exe is scary.
