  1. Is it OK to run Aviation Gas in my 2003 XX??

    Pure gas is good stuff. However, Serfs must use fuel blended to the specifications outlined by our political elite. They know what's best for you.

    We mock what we don't understand.

    Yes. You were flamed. By those Hmung us.
  4. Is it OK to run Aviation Gas in my 2003 XX??

    I once had a discussion with a mechanic at a museum that featured military vehicles. He reported that they had started buying AV gas by the tanker load. He said it stores as long as 4+ years. He went on to rant about modern blends being shit, and that none stored beyond a year even with stabilizer. When I met him he was just finishing cleaning fuel off of his face from tank that had a load of fuel that had gone bad (not av gas). He was an expert at fuel systems by this point.

    Consider switching over to carburation. Much more reliable...

    Lucky you weren't shot in the back by the deli owner white boy...
  7. Rear Brake Pad renew

    Just pull it off, leave the line connected, and work on it like that.
  8. Rear Brake Pad renew

    Pull the caliper. Hose it down with spay brake cleaner. Use a stiff nylon bristle brush or your ex girl friends toothbrush to scrub the grime off without damaging the piston seals. Press the pistons back in and reassemble. Now swap out the old brake fluid. Next go for a ride and hammer on the brakes to bed them in. You can now drink heavily. Tomorrow look at the fronts as they are likely not far behind.
  9. Radar detector mounting

    Fuck yeah. No way they catch you...
  10. Radar detector mounting

    Without other traffic bend over and take it.....hard
  11. Stainless brake lines

    Yes, they do help many people. I have long arms though, and have ridden my cbr1000rr for over 5 hours straight and can handle that. I really think the stock clip ons will be more better for me.
  12. Radar detector mounting

    Thanks for posting the steering head mount concept. I read that long ago but forgot it. Going to try to adapt the stem mount I bought to this system. Guess while looking at the socket head on the bike I didn't take note that it was a thru hole.
  13. Radar detector mounting

    That is simple. "Officer, I don't believe I was going that fast. Not trying to argue with you but I was keeping with the flow of traffic cause being on a motorcycle its not safe to have cars and trucks stacked up on your ass.."...
  14. Radar detector mounting

    Interestingly I was in a vehicle with a redline operating. Approaching a known speed trap location I was overtaking a semi in the rt lane and decided to move into the lane directly to his left. As I overtook him, i began to pickup a radar signal and let off the throttle. Still passing on momentum I saw the trap in the median to the left. The redline went 100% and I feathered the brakes to the point that I was slowly overtaking the semi. The semi was 15mph over, and traffic here routinely is 20+ over. At that moment I received a full laser warning and braked harder. I swear that dude had both. And he may have visually noted my overtaking the semi when the radar locked on the truck. Interestingly, he didn't come after me. Thought for sure when I got lasered It was a stop for sure.
  15. Ohlins fork valving installation instructions.

    Received the forks after shipping them back to the original company for evaluation. MUCH better. Guessing replacing the 7.5 weight oil they used with 10wt would be even better. Haven't done any hard braking to see if the level needs to be changed to reduce dive. It is at least very serviceable as it stands. Threw on a new Angel GT tire up front (had to have a shop throw on a GT rear on a long road trip some weeks back after taking it down to the cords) while I had the front end off, so she should be good for 7k + miles now. Need to run her hard before the cold settles in on us.....
