Re: Electrics Bikes--anybody interested in the latest offerings?

If you commute to work less than 100 miles, and can do it by moto, an electric is perfect for that. Charge at the office for a couple hours for the ride home.

Re: Love riding my SV, wife doesn't want me to ride

Earlier someone brought up a good point, in buying an airbag system. Maybe upgrade your gear to an air system to provide that extra level of safety, and take some more riding courses. There was also...

Re: Very heavy clutch lever, out of ideas

If you are missing balls in the actuator mechanism, that will definitely make a difference. Each missing ball increases friction on the remaining balls. I think the amount of increased friction is on...

Re: More Riders. Yaay!

Actually, a bike in LA (assuming the city, not the state) makes more sense than almost anywhere else. Year round riding weather, parking is at a premium for cars, and you can filter. Less time in the...

Re: Rub black frame back to aluminium

It's painted either silver (03/04) or black (05+), but I have heard that it's possible to have them powder coated (no personal experience) in any color you want.

Re: Disappointing Advanced Ridercourse Experience

There's a fellow that used to be here in CA that did private and group coaching, not sure if he's still teaching, but is in NC now and was teaching the last I spoke with him.

Re: Looking for a tank bag...what does everyone have?

I have the V1 Bilt expandable. It actually works quite well. I didn't know they'd made a V2 whick appears to actually resolve one of the few issues I have with using mine when expanded, so might have...

Re: Apps??

Re: Remove bottoming cones or not?

No - you do not remove them. You are using the stock rods, and modifying them, Everything else stays there with the addition of the valves.

Re: Boots?

I spent a few extra $$ on a set of Daytona boots, as they still look good under pants for work, and are comfortable enough to wear all day.

Re: 2005 650s stalls when engine is warm

Check for leaks around the intakes. I've got a thread about it around here somewhere if you search on my username. The lower seats for the intakes get old and start leaking a little air, which causes...

Re: No headlights

Since it's a 2001, first check the connector at the headlight, then backtrack to the switch. Consider looking into an Eastern Beaver headlight relay kit - it wires from main fuse (I think) to...

Try a set of custom formed earplugs. I hear (sic) they are both better at killing noise, and more comfortable than the foam plugs. FortNine (

Re: Coming back from an accident

Nothing really to add here, when I crashed I ended up with a bruised rib, and it took a little over a month to get the bike back to being ready to ride, and I was chomping at the bit.

Re: I need new tires

Michelin Pilot Road is a great tire. I get lots of miles out of them. It's a multi-compound sport touring tire so it won't flatspot in the center as fast as a pure sport tire, has lots of grip on the...

Re: intermittent fault

Check for air leaks on the intakes right off the bat. The rubber seats under the intakes can dry and crack, and create intermittant issues. Get some carb cleaner, and while it's running, squirt a...
