I flushed it last year, with DOT4 which was a pain to find as usual. Last year it gave me a bit of trouble, whereas it didn't work at all. I flushed it, and it was good.
I have also done the scraping method, and I will try it again when I go to work on it. I don't remember any ridges, but will check again.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Anybody else have clearance issues between shifter and CS sprocket cover when you adjust your shifter up for riding with MX boots?

That can be fixed by installing an MSR one-inch-longer shifter.
They are steel and can be re-bent many times.
Put it in a bench vise and re-curve the s-bend to clear the engine.
Mine was hitting the stator cover.

No. I don't see how you could have clearance issues, though?

Back on the subject of luggage, I tossed the Coyote on the bike and decided to weld up a little bar to help keep it off the muffler. I'll get some pics someday.

I'm getting an insurance quote today. My resistance is very, very weak. It is a sweet machine and you are right about the rims.

Good job
But you might want to get an aftermarket set of plastic, before I put my racks on the bag made a mess of my plastic (luckily it was already aftermarket)

Or make the guard a bit different and run it to the top of the rear footpeg mount.

That is aftermarket plastic. I have lots of aftermarket plastic. I'm heading out in a few minutes. We'll see how it works and make adjustments if needed.

I used a large rollie up top and two medium rollies on the sides.

Packed inside is a sleeping bag, Camping chair, camp stove, pots/pans, soap, clothes, tent and rain fly, tools, 1911 pistol, cell phone with charging chord and accessories, 2 litres of extra fuel and some other miscelaneous small things. Sleeping pad is on top of the large rollie bag.

I will also be wearing a back pack with my camel back and the rest of my camping equipment. I'm trying to go as light as possible.

Here are some pics all loaded up












What's the details on that thunderbird in the background? I have an 87 5.0 that I plan on building in a few years.

Ha ha funny you ask. It belongs to my bro and it is seriously fast.

I don't do Fords but I know a little about it.

1985 original 302 stroked to 347 w/ afr heads (don't know which ones) a pretty stinking large cam, all the goodies inside as it was fully built with fancy stuff. Lyntech (sp?) transmission good for 2,000 hp. Long tubes x pipe with flowmasters. It shakes the earth. Everything stock inside 43k miles on the car now and looks brand new.

Pretty cool little car, I think he only has about 10k in it and it will smoke some seroiusly fast cars. Last time it was at the strip it was runing in the 10's at the 1/4 mile on race gas. It has since been dyno tuned and got a bump in timing.

We call it the thunderchicken and make fun of him for driving an old lady's car. He gets that last laugh though.

I have always been into vettes but got rid of both of mine and now I am into Hummer's and adventure riding hence my name and me being here. Here is the H1
