    Corporate reasoning? (long)

    Put aluminum foil over it when you don't want them to know about you addictions (read:starbucks).

    Is age an issue for Blackbirds?

    I've got a a 97 with 126k miles on it. It has seen a fair bit of sun, but I try to keep it out of the rain. It's not MINT by any standards, but people still are impressed with the age and it's shape. If the one you are looking at has not been neglected, you should be fine (assuming you aren't too OCD). Pretty much what others are saying.

    When do you know your clutch is due?

    Well, If memory serves, this is my second set. I didn't say all 230k was on the original, someone asked how many KM and I thought they meant on the bike. This clutch defenately has about 130+km on it for sure. Ok, so I'm going to ignore the engage point, but instead point out that when it does engage it seems to pulse a little. So I'll do the fluid and polish and lube the rod. Then if the mild "chatter" is still there after I'll break into well soaked OEM friction plates. Thanks everyone for your input. Think this is the best direction to go and it won't cost me a fortune up front.

    When do you know your clutch is due?

    I'm at approx 120k miles. What do we want to replace with? I'm hearing rumours that OEM is the best to go with? And I likely want to do springs, pressure plates and friction plates all at the same time? I'll polish and lube my rod (stop giggling), and flush the fluid while I'm at it.

    Yes...boobies. I must agree.

    Now, put a mount in the centre for when you only have ONE bike on there.
  9. My clutch isn't engaging until the very end of my lever travel. If I move the lever even a smidge...the clutch will slip. I don't recall any type of adjustment for this. Could my clutch plates be wearing thin? it's been a decade + since I've replaced any type of clutch plates on a bike so I've long forgotten what the symptoms are.

    Link is closer now, at least the device also does negative pressure. It's a vacuum today!

    We have one of these, it's pretty handy. I learned quick not to vacuum seal muffins.
  13. So Mikey. Are you the guy that I meet up with on Mapleview Dr. on the black bird and I was on my ZX-11?

      Hmm, I'll have to look at my screen when I get home to decide for sure. We'll get together when I get back either way.

    UG, if the CDN dollar wasn't so crappy, I'd snag that. But it would cost me nearly 300
