Re: 1984 evo heads and studs

They bolts are not going to fall apart from old age. The aftermarket pigtail kits reduce base gasket seepage but I wouldn't lift a jug just to install one. It's best done when a top end job is in...

Re: Cheap tires?

I bought a rear Cheng Shit for my GS 750 long ago and figured out why the local street racers liked them because they were sticky but unfortunately wore just like a pencil eraser, crumbs and all,...

Shovelhead fifth transmission bolt threaded insert question.

I don't have it in hand but a question on another forum has me curious. Trans case is a 1980.

The fifth bolt insert looks like a typical threaded insert, and being staked with a dowel supports...

Re: Rain water ingestion

That's bizarre for one ride.

It also makes no sense that it would take out the charging system, but they're not the most long lived parts. (I replace the complete charging system when I get a...

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...

Re: Cal Products C8 transmission case wanted

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.
