I think a buddy still has a "K" on his leg from my GPz550 in high school! His legs are not as nice as hers^, but he's a bike rider so he does shave them

^Clutch

Check fluids *when you buy new second-hand bike*, not when your front brakes stop working properly and you crack things open for bleeding.

At least I did fix the air bubble problem...

Corollary: pay attention to the windshield when raising the lift with the garage door open.

Shouldn't it be "never try to repair your carb with an angle grinder?"

Note to self

Spray paint/bedliner fumes do not stay contained in the basement. Especially in the winter.

(18 outside and I've got fans in the windows trying to pump fresh air through the house)

Nah, i'd do it all over again

The sces was way overtightened, so I cut a small slot in them with the grinder. It seemed like the appropiate thing to do

You DON'T want to get me going on this...

Check the battery condition BEFORE you assume its the starter and remove it for replacement.

Make sure the petcock is "on" before you start that skill test...

Check for hidden grubscrews before you get out the hammer...

Rust in a gas tank is usually plugging a leak.

A loose oil vent line will usually coat the rear tire

ALWAYS check the gas tank for fuel as part of your trouble shooting before re-building the engine.
