Re: Aluma Trailers 638 vs 6310 vs 7210

I have a 7710H with the folding tailgate. When hauling the bike I am able to fold the tailgate completely flat on the floor of the trailer behind the bike.

CMSI went to the removable shifter when the 750 was introduced in 2002.

Re: Mystery Gearbox: What Year Is It???

1998.5 true electric starter added. 2002 CMSI introduces the 750 OHV engine. Same transmission as 1998.5. 2003 IMWA takes over as the importer from CMSI. Transmission changes, rear ratios and shift lever. 2006 The neutral turns off when in reverse. The years before 2006 the neutral light would stay ...

Re: Music, Men ... ?

We had to play something called a Tonette, but the cover of the music books had a picture of a kid playing a flutephone. That was when I started to distrust my music teacher. “Do you know what she did, guys? She ordered us these cheap flutephone imposters and probably pocketed the difference!” http...

Re: Chain Saw Heaven

Hi Lee, Magnetic chucks on the surface grinders? Can't see a lathe, band saw, miller or drill press being a problem. Their motors are usually well shielded and grounded. Any magnet to close to the device can cause issues. Where I worked they also had a long belt fed braze oven that was heated to 19...

Re: Odyssey PC680-P Installation Trouble, 2008 Patrol

I'm running into the same things on my '07 Gear-Up. The battery is wedged in super-tight between the upright frame members. I'm worried that, over time, the friction clamps that hold those side panels in are going to cut through the case. This is a PC680 battery (https://www.amazon.com/Odyssey-PC68...

Re: 1968 Triumph Trophy TR6R

Wow! I have drooled all over my keyboard! Is that Baxter Cycles by any chance? If so, I bought my tank and rack from him along with other parts. He does fantastic restorations. Thanks for the pics.
