Re: UTT Master Cylinder pressure light

As far as setting the ATE calipers for disc alignment. I always used a felt marker to draw a thick line across the disc. I would then spin the wheel and see what part of the line would be removed. Repeat the procedure until the line is uniformly remove by the brake pads. Been a long time since I've ...

Re: Take airhead to Europe?

As an original owner of a R100S I can see why you would want to ride you own bike in Europe. But I have done a two trips to Europe. I rent, and while this is not cheap, I find it a real treat. If your trips are going to be a matter of weeks rather than months, then I would recommend renting. New bik...

Re: Redline Heavy ShockProof Gear Oil worth the cash?

Re: How to Wake Up a 1975 r90/6?

I'd replace the gas line. I've been told the weaved stuff isn't as good as modern fuel line. There are some fuel line sold for Airheads, that is close to fitting, but too tight.

Re: Redline Heavy ShockProof Gear Oil worth the cash?

I would suggest a good synthetic. Transmissions go much further. I have run Mobil synthetics without a problem since they were first introduced.
