Re: New scoot shipping tomorrow morning

If you're not familiar, make an inspection and servicing checklist. Don't forget to check the tappet screen.

Re: Killswitch for Mag users- kill to prime? Theft?

I'd take something else to a concert or other social gatherings unless you feel like giving away a Panhead. If I can't watch my bike I ride a beater and park next to attractive machines, or I take my...

VL fork question posted for flatman. "calling on Von Wegener "

Apparently his computer barfed when posting here so I'm posting in his behalf.

Re: Norton or how to not behave...

There's no valid brick and mortar comparison to website hosting. OT sections consume a lot of bandwidth relative to informational content, and someone has to pay for that wasted bandwidth and disk...

Re: Norton or how to not behave...

Norton was the perfect vehicle for shady actors because some bikers are as giddy as schoolgirls when they see a cherished decal. Garner's crew have sketchy pasts.

As for the forum, leave it as-is...

Re: Norton or how to not behave...

Anyone seriously interested will have found out about the questionable business practices, but new Norton has nothing technically to do with old Norton and is as irrelevant to JJ as the latest Yamaha...

Re: Looking for dual plug wire kit

I buy universal automobile V8 wire kits plus whatever boots I desire (if different from the universal kit) and make my own.

Re: Bit of an off the wall topic.

Consider making the bitch bar parallel with the front forks which neatly (almost) parallel the center post. Shortening the fender would work well with that, too. That gives three "lines" at close to...

I like the ribs. Is there anything else special about those? I've never handled one.

Re: Bit of an off the wall topic.

If it's for gardening it won't likely burn. If it's for spraying it's highly likely to ignite and will dispose of itself when lit. Alternate option if it smells like solvent, leave it out to...

Re: Bit of an off the wall topic.

Ensure you spelt it correctly and post more info if the label has any.


I'd take a spoonful for an outdoor burn test. If it burns, problem solved.

Re: Drill chuck for your angle grinder.

Die and angle grinders typically turn much higher RPM than comparable drill motors and their bodies are more comfortable for prolonged grinding which is why they are 90-degree and straight vs. drills...

Drill chuck for your angle grinder.

This is an old trick but works very well. It lets you run anything you can fit in the chuck and beats buying a dedicated heavy die grinder. (I have those, too but this is handy enough to leave the...

Re: warmed up leftovers

That's an unusual bar but the hand grip position looks comfortable like ape hangers.

I like both bars and bike.

Re: inner primary

Re: Why won’t this work

Assuming you have a belt that fits that mix of parts (install belt to verify it fits first! ) your local machine shop should be able to narrow that front pulley to match the basket.

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

You can certainly do low compression and the factory did back in the days of funky fuel. If you tune carefully you can even start them by hand when warm....on a good day. It impresses bystanders....

That's what I'm doing. 39mm front ends look cleaner too so there's that.
