Re: regarding rear shocks

I've got Hagons on my R100, much better than the worn out ones they replaced. I second the vote for Hagons and here's why... 1) They are really good shocks and well worth your money. I've had them on my dual shock R100 for over 2 years (30K miles) and they are excellent. 2) A friend of mine rode a ...

Re: jims tank lining

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. Guess mine is a freak case since I've not had a problem all these years with using ethanol fuel. I did LaDonna's bike over 10 years ago ...
