Re: Handelbars.

I see you're still using the forward mounting holes on the upper clamp. If you switch to an RT gauge mounting bracket, you can move your bars back to the rear mounting holes. Shorter reach without raising the bars, and giving more room within the fairing. It took a while, but I figured that out. I ...

Thanx Kurt!

I couldn't find that one. I suck @ fleabay.
Do an "Advanced Search" and check off that you only want closed items. That will show you what items finally sold for and how many hits they got.

Re: Handelbars.

Yeah, I thought so. To get the same thing from HeliBars would be well over $500. I typically get the Honda bars off Ebay for under $25 and add about 2 hours of my time to customize them. Another great thing is that they are already 22mm and not 7/8 inch, so the controls don't need to be modified at ...

Re: Handelbars.

The Honda bars are steel. After cutting, I press a specially turned solid chunk of steel bar at least 1.5" into each of the 2 halves. That's what's keeping the bar together and aligned in the pre-welded condition you see in the last 2 photos. Then I have the weld penetrate all 3 parts. Believe me wh...

Re: Stinky boot

• Like everyone else, I like to work on the carb on the bike. But this keeps you from detecting small bits of old float bowl gasket stuck in place. You do need to remove the carb every once in awhile simply to check that gasket surface. • If it's been over 10 years, then you really should replace th...

Re: Idle Jet change 32mm Bing

Thanks. Yes I know that 45's are used on almost all BMW airhead bikes. I have electronic ignition advance and Kehin y pipe and sst head pipes without crossover . Agreed. Changing the pipe configuration from stock could be a big contributor. So few people change something like that it's going to be ...

Re: Spline Lube on Paralever

If not mistaken, I think some of the Amsoil products are red. My brother's 1100RS was puking oil out the front and wheel seal until we changed it. As I understand it, "seal softeners" are something that need to be added to synthetic oils, so each brand has a different amount. Meaning a simple oil ch...

Re: Grease incompatability

Read this... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska_Ai ... Flight_261

The problem was the grease was changed. Either grease alone would have worked fine, but not mixed. The resulting corrosive effects of the mixed grease ate up the ball screw, which locked the control surfaces.
