Probably better idea to use a dry lube like Teflon or graphite.

Stephan apparently is too busy with other things right now to spend much time on the gas cap project. He did message me about it and he was trying to think of a way to do it quickly but there are some problems with it and he says he is very busy right now.

I may have another source to make something here stateside.

I am just testing the waters as to how many people would be interested in a billet type cap that would fit the stock tank flange and be totally leak proof. I would guess such a piece would be under $100.

Anyone else interested?
Yeah I'm interested. Like Tom, mines getting really stiff nowadays, must be something in the Gold Coast air!

Is that with our without VAT? If it's included, then anybody who exports one can buy it for about 613.

IIRC I paid 500 all in for mine. Bought at the NEC bike show so was a bit of a deal.

Thanks Frosty.

Does anyone know if there will be a problem with taking it on a plane (international flight)?

Also, when would you want to get preload adjustment on a spring? Is it for people who travel on heavily loaded bikes?

Suggest you check with airline. Rules change often & vary with airline. Even a definitive answer as of yesterday may not be valid for when you travel.

I have traveled with shocks in my luggage a few times (don't ask...), never had a problem. Of course you should put it in the checked baggage.

Canadian Winter Riding

I am thinking trying a extended ride this winter in Canada. I am looking at going from north-western Ontario to Yellowknife NWT in January and wondering if its even reasonable to ask a bike to do this.
I figure bikes are designed for summer use so it might be a recipe for disaster from the onset. What kind of things do you guys figure I would need to look at to get my bike ready to be used daily in weather from -10 to -30 celcius. I know studded tires are a must as well as some extra protection since dropping the bike is a good possibility but what else? I was thinking an inline coolant heater or some sort of oil heater would help with starting and reduce wear a lot. Also I am thinking the rads would have to get partially blocked off since they are designed for warmer use.
What else should I be looking into if I think I want to do this? Any suggestions are appreciated

A block heater of some sort and while you're at it, a sidecar.

A sidecar, I like that!

There is a guy on this forum who has a XChallenge sidecar rig. IIRC, he's in southern Oregon or Northern California. That would be cool, to roll into Yellowknife in January all caked up with hoar frost.
