Re: problems out of nowhere?

...with the occasional start...
That part is a "no go" for me out of experience.... :deal: as it is a easy way to convert a perfectly running bike into a :deadhorse:

Or you ride or store.

Preferably ride a lot on daily base.

Re: California politics

I prefer not to mention the name of the man who bought my Norton Comando engine. As soon he married he took over his wife's name.

Re: right hand controls on Patrol 2014

my son made me 2 new switch sliders on his 3 D printer. both held only few weeks, as they tend to brake right at the point where Ural grinds them off. I will ask him for one last shot with PET material. if you like chime in. all it takes is patience, a scalpel and the old springs, ball and contact p...

Re: Frozen Electricl Controls (rain and low temps)

and wd40 lasts only for short time for to make things after a few weeks worse. sometimes a hole in the bottom of the switch gear is a good help to let the water out again. grease in winter often is too sticky. in those cases i prefer simple 3 in 1 sewing machine oil/marvel mystery oil or anything el...

Re: A little bit of head shake.....

would be no trouble in US but CR is a pain in anything that has to do with anything a technician needs.
anywhere you ask: "no hay" / "¿Que es esto?" / "no ha entrado por años."
Nothing on stock / what is that? / didn't come in for years.
Not even at the Honda importer's headquarter.

Re: Non Vacuum Petcock & R vs L Mikuni Carbs?

Long time ago mi first boss Meister Päetzel taught me to get rid off the eternally dripping carburators... "Leave the petcock open when you use the bike at least once a week. Shut it only for ferry passages and long term standing like in winter, and then drain out the carb." The most time open petco...

Re: A little bit of head shake.....

Marine grease does give result inside bearing and moving parts. Zink based antisieze does give results in fixed things. Like bearing seats, screws..... Copper based antisieze does give results in high temperature applications and on conductive parts. (spark plugs, electrical panel distribution bars ...

Re: Non Vacuum Petcock & R vs L Mikuni Carbs?

Here is my way to get rid of the foolish vacuum petcock.
All it takes is a self made washer/front plate for the existing petcock and some time.
