    Put your DVM in ammeter inline with your battery with your "locked handlebar" and you will learn how and why a battery will fully discharge if left unridden.

    Yes. The physics is sound for an ideal environment but hitting cracks and bumps on the road throw the beads requiring a rebalance. Perhaps advocates don’t notice double or triple hits when they hit...

    Spin balancers look high tech and sexy. Their main purpose is to be idiot proof because skilled labor is harder to find than a few thousand bucks for a spin balancer. Problem is these machines are...

    Marc Parnes sells a balancer and necessary adapter for single sided bmw wheels. Do it yourself. First time will take about as long to balance as it takes to remove/install the wheel.

    LiFePO4 batteries will start to have troubles when temperatures fall below 50░, and lots of trouble at 40░. If ever it is allowed to fully discharge (gotta keep the clock running, right?) the battery...

    I had a weepage once, not really a drip. Backed the bolt out 1/4 turn, tightened, no more weep.

    Putting the seal over the inner fork tube is the most likely means of scratching the seal lip preventing it from ever making a good seal.

    There are purpose-made guides to put over the fork tube to...

    I use Honda Type 2 in my motorcycles. Widely available, any Honda/Acura dealer, about $25/gallon for premix.

    Don't mix it with anything else. Flush well with water before using.

    If the fork leaks then the shop screwed up. Go back and make them do it right. You paid for it, they owe you.

    In general I use (5) fronts to (4) rears. The exception was Bridgestone T30 Evo GT where I got 7500 miles front, 7000 rear.

    If you were happy with your current tires then a good choice would be to buy the same model again. A Metzler Z6 is a totally different tire from an Z8. The Z6 is a really cheap flimsy tire. Don't...

    Where is "t6Jj8y"? Somebody may have the tire tools to get the job done in 5 minutes. You'll take longer removing the wheel.

    Your 2007 TPMS was probably manufactured in 2006 so it is 15 years old. That is pretty darn good. But likely to have been changed by a previous owner.

    But yes, plan on replacing the front sensor....

    Am almost always impressed with new tires. (Shinko 016 was the exception.)

    What matters is how I feel about the tire just before replacing it. Was a joyful day with the 016s came off.

    Yes, but engine designers have to know users and mechanics are idiots so overfills will be common. If engine grenades with oil only 1/8" over FULL then most engines will eventually fail that way.

    I don’t think “a bit” over the FULL line will hurt anything. Some engines are more variable in oil level between 1 minute after being run and 4 hours later.

    Often signaling with right hand?
    Rear brake is on left, shifter on right.
    I don't believe the video is reversed no matter they are driving on the wrong side of the road!
