I guess I got lucky. When I removed the stock tires on the Sega back in 1985 it looked like there was clear coat missing. So I always cleaned the residue off and shot some clear coat on the beads. Let it sit overnight then mounted the wheels. I did know know about tire lube back in prehistoric times before the internet.

He but I have tried the transmission fluid and acetone mix and on corroded steel PB Blaster is better.

Wait that was another thread.

I also pry the seals off my wheel bearing and stuff in more grease. Then put back the seals. Not supposed to because too much grease increases the pressure and is bad. But then these are no double sealed and eventually the hub may be packed with grease.

Why not drink beer brewed by an American company and not one brewed by a South African Company under contract. A good Va beer.

Soooooooooooooooo????

Anybody up for another Tech Day. Ordered the seals and bushings for the Buell fork yesterday. And the Mrs. would love to meet some of you.

I will supply two bay garage (with a little heat), tools, and food.

After hanging out with Nug's, the forks are pretty straight forward. But another set of hands is definitely needed during tear-down/assembly. Not sure of a date yet, but thinking a weekend in January would be cool.

If anybody is interested just give me a shout.

I have two swingarm stands, a moto/atv lift (actually two at the moment cause I still have Toms that I need to get back to him.......) and an MX stand. Torque wrenches, impacts, vacuum gauges, bearing removal/install tools, tire change stand (it works good for offroad/DS tires but would not want to use it for supersport/touring stuff. Pretty much if you need it for a moto, I have it.

Cheers Ken
So, did I miss the invitation here? Should I be getting a complex? I was under the impression that a beer drinking opportunity (I mean maintenance opportunity) was imminate. Plus, i need to change the oil in the KTM and the BMW. I need to swap tail lights on the KTM, new signals, install LED lights, and figure out how to get some vinyl off it.....

Hey, misery loves company! Besides, I bet you already have a bunch of that expensive Motorex 10w-60

It was fun just to do it, and there's no better way to learn throttle control, but with my Tourance tires even at 19psi there was no way I was going over 30 on an unplowed surface.

I was honestly thinking about you the whole way in this AM.

It sucked in a car, and I could feel my wheels spinning out.

Hats off to you.

No worries man. Needed to take the 950 down for winter maintenance so went ahead and did the XB fork seal. Still have plenty to do and am still planning on hosting a tech day, with management approval of course.
And no Motorex for this guy. I generally run Amsoil Diesel synthetic or Rotella T synth. Sometimes Motul Ester synth when it's on sale :)

Well, if you can't man up and take control of your garage (or the pout house, as it's called in MY, and her, house). I guess we can clear some space out here.

I've said it hundreds of times, the Cold War had nothing to do with politics. It's was about keeping American men away from Russian women!

I saw Shannon today. He is getting around great but is getting out of motorcycling. He does not want to risk another hit. He offered me his bikes. I bought his DR. Hope I can take as good care of it as he has. I have a few things to fix. Now he is getting ready to sell his new Vstrom 650. It only has 2,500 miles. Here are a few pictures. Shannon asked me to post them. If anyone is interested send him a PM. PM me for more pictures. It has marine stablizer in the tank and the battery is disconnected.





The DR will be back on the road in a few months.

Mixed emotions hearing that.

Sad, cause I know how he loved to ride. Glad cause I know how much he loves his family and that he'll be safer. A little introspective about how I feel selfish sometimes riding like I do when I have a family that I could devastate with hospital bills or me just being gone.

Shannon talked about do some fishing as a new hobby. I hope some of the bike money goes towards a fly rod or something.

Kayak fishing sounds good. He is a Navy guy. His grand kids are small. He can chase them around. A lot of the activities we participate are risky. Some greater than others. We just have to constantly asses the risks and hope we and others make the correct choices.
