Re: Strociek web artifact with old pics - Anyone know more?

"Strociek" backwards.

Damn thing sounds like an LDT465. :D

Re: Clutch engaging hard - '59 Pan

Earlier trannies have a dripper that bolts to the mainshaft retainer plate; it's independent of the pushrod assembly. And the witch's hat IS the bearing.

That setup looks ostensibly like it could...

Re: Retorqued heads and bikes now running awful

To piggyback on that, this is why I always loosen the top motor mount before a retorque.

No answers for you, but I'm curious to read on how to deal with this.

Re: Lets get the record straight, LOWBROW.

The Japanese were breaking the laws of moving units in the US; they were definitely dumping. That was proved unequivocally by Harley and others, and affirmed by the ITC. The Japanese steel industry...

Re: Lets get the record straight, LOWBROW.

Well Made In America chronicles how the AMF takeover came to fruition.

What federal aid are you talking about?

Re: Lets get the record straight, LOWBROW.

Yep. AMF bought and paid for the Evo. So many people are quick to deride them, but AMF dragged Harley into the modern age. A few books have been written about this very thing. Never mind they saved...

Re: Skinny swing-arm gennie shovel+pan chops

Not even close to what you're going for, but any time I hear the word "skinny," I am reminded of Rezi's bike.

Rezi's bike is skinny.

Re: Stroker question

That's true, John, they make some nutty, nutty cams. But last time I inquired with them they did not make anything for BTSV.

Re: One more Triumph Build

Similarly, I helped a friend do one in 9/16". Always looked too "fat" to me, and the tight bends didn't ever look right to my eye in that diameter stock.

If you were to fashion a more conventional...

Re: One more Triumph Build

Might just be the way I am seeing the picture, but that sissy looks slender... like 7/16" or so?

I think at that height that's gonna crack fast.

Nope. This is just incorrect. In fact, Dexter Ford wrote an article about this years ago (https://jalopnik.com/how-the-truth-about-motorcycle-helmets-got-a-journalist-5582380) called "Blowing The Lid...

Re: Short Oil filter

That fucking filter drives me batshit because I can't ever find a good automotive replacement.

If someone comes up with a good cross (even if it's longer!) I'd be indebted.

Re: Shovel with EI not running...

Hundred times? Fuck that. Pull the return line, stop kicking when it pukes.

Do your retorque after you ride until it stabilizes. (Don't forget to back off the top motor mount.)

If it runs OK,...

Re: Tranny Main seal shaft leak?

Super Nuts are a bandaid. Put a mainshaft seal in it. Be sure the existing shaft ain't bent from a tip or spill on the left side if it's ever been run open.

Super Nuts also don't work with a...
