Plenty of good synthetic products in the proper range.

I'm a long time fan of this purpose engineered synthetic.


+1, Me too. I use the heavier 80/90 in my final drive. Both products are bronze bushing friendly.

Never enjoyed pulling a trailer behind anything, & have a truck for large loads.

Re: Noob question - Is Full throttle on Highway Going to Hurt?

It will hurt the bike to run it full throttle on the freeway. It also hurts to get rear ended.

Re: Anyone lower the front fender on LL fork?

I like the look of the snug front fender a lot. but I really do need the front grab loop to move my tourist around the garage.

Re: Let me see your Jerry cans

My genuine 2.5 gal NATO Gerry Can, has integral automatic venting system, & separate pour spout. Never spills a drop, Spare wheel on trunk lid discourages thieves - trunk must be open to remove can. Totally pleased with it. IMO the USA 5 gal. can is to large to hang on sheet metal. The German ar...

Re: Tractor to Solo Seat Tutorial Gear Up and Retro - Uses HD Police Solo and springs

I'm using a large British replica LYCETTE saddle, It is much more comfortable than the original seat, & looks the correct vintage. I had to install a different bushing on my Ural mount, & devise spring mounts. I like it a lot, I use "imitation Buffalo Fur" covers to protect from UV...

Re: Which air pump?

Here's my new Old School Pump. Made with better engineering & materials than the original Russian item. Pumps tires fast & easy, fits original trunk brackets. Low tech & simple. cost under &10. I'm to impatient to fiddle with wimpy electric pumps.

Re: Noob question - Is Full throttle on Highway Going to Hurt?

Not designed for the USA Highway. The previous owner of mine tried to ride from Georgia to Ohio, & cooked a head & piston - which was how I could afford to buy it. I can do about 45-50 on it everywhere without problems (Thus far)

Re: Anyone Daily/Rain Ride?

It has a lot to do with the riders youth & enthusiasm level. Up until my late 30's I rode to work daily on my solo Triumph & BMW - unless snow was on the ground, even survived riding over patches of black ice. I had a British AVIAKIT long Storm Coat, that was several layers thick, ankle leng...

It's a little bit harder to 'rock' the bike left and right tho....with that sidecar 'accessory' hanging off the side.

:P


No need to rock. If I cant see any gas - I add some from my Gerry Can. Keeping topped up prevents rust inside the tank.
