Re: Redline Heavy ShockProof Gear Oil worth the cash?

I've run Redline in my bikes for a few years, it's good oil but don't pay much extra for it. I got mime from a lube dealer when I was buying 80W90 oil for the plant in 55 gal drums. I got a special deal on a couple gallons of redline. Mobil and Valvoline are good products

KREEM is considered the worst of all the tank sealers. Apparently it is not ethanol-proof because it peels off within 18 months on the bikes I've seen it used on.

Re: Nikasil

How can you put a base gasket (or o-ring) under the cylinder without removing the cylinder? First, you place the pistons at top dead center. Then you pull off the cylinders just far enough so you can get access to the clips that hold the wrist pins in place. Once the clips are removed, you can push...
