Nice shot - colour of the motorcycle against the fall leaves really pops.
I can see why changing the oil is causing you ask questions.
While it may seem to make sense to delay oil changes due to low mileage, the problem is that low mileage. For example, the oil in an...
Glad you've got it sorted. And what a surprise to hear you've lived in Alberta! You may be pleased to know Aussies remain well represented here, particularly in Banff and Jasper.
I've been to...
I agree with Max regarding the rectifier/regulator. The regulator/rectifier is what limits voltage output. Too high is a sure sign that it has a problem.
The stator works in unison and so...
I tend to agree with you regarding the rectifier/regulator. The stator works in unison and so replacing one means you should replace both. (And neither is expensive, particularly given the option of...
Electricity runs two ways on a wire.
The circuit is directed wired to the battery - where does CANBUS come into it?
If you are going to a 'cobbler', I'd offer they'd be well suited to suggest materials and provide the tools.
Re-upholstery requires some skill to do well.
If you haven't bought them already, I have these exchanger pipe O rings I can send you.
Send me a private...
Normally, I would look to the battery as the culprit. But seeing as how you could kill the engine and restart, followed by full lighting and instrumentation, the battery does not seem to be the...
It's long enough. Nice choice.
I noticed it's 5/8ths as opposed to 16mm. I suspect this will be no problem, given how close those two measurements are.
IMO the coil tool for $11 is worth it. The coils are, what I would describe, as firmly in place - especially if they haven't been removed for a few years. Yes, they can be removed with strength, and...
You'll want to Google "LED Turn Signals Blinking Too Fast (Hyperflashing)"
I'm guessing the bulbs are from eBay/Amazon/Alibaba?
There's a bit of engineering required for a LED replacement to 1)...
Printing it right now. Thank you!
Fantastic post! I really appreciate the detail. Many will benefit from your efforts. Thank you.
A few questions....
1) I can't depress the right side fork cap. There is too much resistance. Did...
I subscribe to Motorcycle Mojo. It's a Canadian publication that focuses on mainstream models and road trips (typically in North America and Europe). The staff riders offer a variety of perspectives....
With that business model I imagine every motorcycle review will have the same outcome - excellent, must buy.
It seems you have an appreciation for good engineering and design?
As for the quantity... Work hard, play hard!
I wondered if the 82HP was a typo. Sure enough only 82HP and about 100ft/lbs of torque. From an 1800cc engine!
For contrast, the 1968 Volkswagen air cooled 1700cc engine had the same outputs for...
First, your written English is excellent. Better than some folks with English as their first language.
Second, I love your user name. Quite witty and solid use of English demonstrated.
Drain. Refill. Done.
You can flush further with water or commercial products. Either way will be inconsequential IMO.
There is a good article in the Hall of Wisdom:
Coolant flush and...
All the social media links (bottom of the webpage) are not directing me to the company page. For a company that's been around, supposedly, since 2006, I'd say very suspicious.
Excellent diagnosis. I really appreciate the photographs - well done and thank you for sharing.
