    The majority of my bike washing is done to get rid of the big, slimy, gooey, mess that the insects make on the front bodywork........and the black, powdery mess on the rear wheel.

    I tried a leaf blower, and it didn't work very well.

    Then I bought one of these, and it works great. In addition to the air being concentrated - the heat from the motor warms up the air. I first...

    Prof: Yes, I believe that shaving the sides can be done easily. There are plenty of YouTube videos that show you how to modify your seat padding - either removing or adding. The upholstery shops...

    Finding an adhesive that sticks to silicone gel is difficult. I tried super glue, spray contact cement for upholstery, and silicone caulking. The silicone caulking worked as well as anything and it...

    Next I turned my attention to the rider (front) portion of the seat.

    I marked the area I wanted to install the pad. As I started cutting I discovered that the plastic bottom of the seat would not...

    Once I had the shape of the foam improved and working better for me - I looked at ways to improve the quality of the foam.

  7. Seat Shape and padding - Martha Stewart attempt at comfort.

    Now that I have the windshield and heat issues pretty well corrected on my bike - my focus has shifted to the seat. The stock seat seems to slope forward - and that along with the slippery surface...

    The belt comes all wadded up in a small box. When I got mine I took it out let if unfold to a single loop, and hung it on a hook on my garage wall......I didn't want it to take a set in the wadded...
  9. Getting heavy bike of sidestand......50+ years of riding and I never knew!

    This might have been better posted in the General Discussion - but if you are like me I only tend to look in the GT section when I visit the forum.

    Well that is interesting. The R1200 is about a second faster to 100mph - but the F800 had higher maximum speed.

    Perhaps the bigger size of the bodywork on the R1200 reduces the top speed.

    I am...

    So far Kentucky is having unusually warm weather - I don't think I have ever been able to ride this late in the year. Usually we have a snow or ice event that causes them to place salt on the roads...

    I looked up "Silent Block" for a shock absorber, and the result was the metal/rubber bushing in the top eye.

    I am bumping this back up to the top so that folks know the service is still available.

    I cannot sell any of the wafers outright - we have to "trade" them so that the supply is kept well stocked.

    N4HHE: I agree with you on the Michelin PR4/PR5 on the front - they both wear out too soon and wear unevenly for me and create a shape that steers horribly as the tire nears the end of the tread...
