Re: Sidecar Luxury Seat 2012 and Older

JMO. But the extra shoulder support from these seats was really nice.

Re: Refurbishing a 1980 Yamaha SR500

Very cool project!
ETA: The sprocket teeth do look well worn. I'd replace those and the chain seeing how it was neglected for a long time.

Re: Who wants a project bike?

Good chance someone reported him to EBay as running a shady auction and they took it down.

Re: FART 2019

Don't think I'll be making it this year. Had to quit my job as a cook to take care of a family emergency. Donna's Mom passed away and I drove 900 miles each way to attend to the funeral with her and bring her Mom's dog home with us. On top of that my van's ventilation system broke on the way to the ...

Not IMZ Ural. VW dampeners on sidecars was not invented by Sean, been around a very long time.
Agreed. I read about the use of VW steering dampers on sidecars in Hack'd magazine back in the 80s.

Re: Toy Hauler RV Trailer

After my poor experiences with a couple RV's, I said never again to plumbing in something that goes down the road. Fitting loosen and then water leaks into the floor where it is trapped and the floor rots. Screw that. My van with a bed in the back is better for camping in general and way lower maint...

Alrighty! Van is all packed and service checked. Korean kimchee cucumber salad is in the fridge. Ready to stir and serve. Packed some homemade salsa too.

Re: BURP 2019

I once owned a Guzzi V11S sport bike. I always thought the S stood for submarine, because every time I took it out on a trip I hit so much rain it was like being underwater. The rain blasted off half the paint on the forward faces of the valve covers the first year I owned it! I would up bead blasti...

Is this a rain or shine event? My weather app illustrates a 40 to 70 percent chance of rain, Thurs through Sunday inclusive.
Thanks to the big pavilion there, it is rain & shine. We'll always have a place to hang out and socialize.

Re: 2004 Ural Maintenance Video

I have a copy of these a dealer gave me years ago. I think they often got snapped up by non mechanics looking for help. Then they get set aside because the guys just weren't mechanics. I watched them once, but it was all stuff I already knew. They are done on a 101 level IMO.
