If you have rubber brake lines, replace them with braided stainless lines (Spiegler) yesterday. Old ones WILL fail and leave you without brakes. If you have the old style left side cam chain tensioner, replace with the new style. If your HES wiring is stock, get it rewired by ...

That's not at all hard to believe. The crosswinds can be brutal there. Poor Matt! Best wishes for a speedy recovery. On a lighter note: you can tell Matt deals with old stuff. Who still has an aol.com email address?...

I have a 2004 R1150RT with a Gizmo Mill LED Flashing tail/brake light unit. It has started acting strange. Gizmo Mill was a Canadian company that went out of business several years ago. The products were then produced by a company called Road Rocketeer, which also seems to have ...

I always release the valves to check everything on a used part. With valves in hand dropping them into the bucket of carb cleaner is easy. The carb cleaner won't bother the steel. Some carb cleaners can affect the aluminum if left on too long so I usually do short applications...
