here's something different for you guys, it's a video of me riding through Taxim Square during the Istanbul riots(well...during the day when most were resting). This was taken after the police withdrew from the square leaving it for the people. Barricades were erected at all points leading to the square using buses, bricks, construction material and whatever else was available.

Before anyone harps on at me riding on the pavements it's because there was something blocking the way, notice the pedestrians....none of them give a f*ck ;)

Really cool video... thanks for sharing. Looks like you have the perfect means of transportation for that kind of situation. Crazy stuff going on over there, stay safe man.

Anyone installed the Emperor Racing luggage rack?

Since I find myself more than often in the woods (no rocky sandy desert like area here), at 12x12, I am afraid of it getting in the way.

If it wasn't so expensive to ship over the border, I'd get a Manrack or Nomadic.

There was someone from Canada who posted an inexpensive way of getting stuff shipped from USA to Canada, I believe on this thread. Unfortunately, I wasn't paying attention, since it didn't apply to me. Do a search, or ask around. Good luck!

I am aware of the procedure, I just don't the time (1h each way) luxury to make a run for the border.

*Edit Mike at Manracks hooked me up! And now I wait.

Some of the thinner shims that may be in use are recessed. Make sure you are measuring between the rocker and the shim. Not getting hung up on the spring retainer. I had to trim and bend my feeler gauges to fit.

Handlebar clamp torque figures

I got my bikemaster 7/8 riser kit and plan to install it ASAP but I was wondering what are the torque numbers for the bolts?

Anyone with the FSM can enlighten me?

sendler, thanks very much. :) Now how to get these, or similar (tapered,angled, METRIC.)
How did you trim your feelers without stuffing them up? i mean, cutting them would distort the edges.

I looked it up, and it just says, "install the handlebar upper holders with the punch marks facing forward. Install the bolts, tighten the front bolts first, then tighten the rear bolts securely". I don't see a torque spec, so I imagine you could see how much effort it takes to get them off, then "install will be the reverse of removal". I think it was Ed@Ford who said that they sock the crap out of all the nuts and bolts at the factory, and I've come to find this true.

I bent the last 7mm of the feeler gauge and then trimmed the width with snips to 4mm or so. There was only some slight knurling on the edges from the serrated snips which I flattened back out with the flat part of some needle nose pliers. They still measure to spec.

Latest update to the wife's Super Moto

The missus requested a shorter shift lever for her munchkin boot. I ordered a stock CRF150 shift lever (24700-KPT-305). I think it was an R model but just match the part number. $21 Bonus: folding tip.

Of course it didn't fit. It required some adjustment in two areas. Nothing that a vice, hammer and a piece of wood wouldn't cure. I put the lever in the vice and then put the board up to the spline area and hit it a couple of times. That gave me the clearance from the engine. Then I had to bend it again to square up the toe part. I also rounded off the square end of lever near the toe.


I had some wood in the vice trying not to mar the finish but it slipped down and I had a couple of dings from the vice on the lever. So I had to sand it down and paint it, I know, it's a sickness. The wife suggested the color. I was going to go with black but it turned out ok. I'm going to try some shrink tubing (either black or red) on the toe part. I think I may need to raise the lever up one spline, will test it tomorrow. The plus side to this lever is you don't have to remove the counter shaft sprocket cover to take it off. Since the bolt goes in from the bottom.


Here is the trimmed and welded "foot" kick stand. I stopped by a local muffler shop and they welded it for me. I checked with a local powder coating place about doing the kick stand and they said their minimum price was $175. Looks like I'm going to paint it (I just hit the end with some silver paint so it wouldn't rust on me). OR maybe try my hand at a powder coating kit.

Has anyone figured out a different gas cap yet? I don't want to paint the factory one, but that seems to be the only option so far.
