Fork Tubes...

SimonV, I was going to say consider having your tubes titanium-nitrited(sp), but then I saw the WIFE thing at the end. Yeah I know it is a little costly but you can't beat the duribility. Approx. $300 USD. The price is the only thing that turned me away at this time. I will consider it more down the...

Re: Sportscar vs Bike

Ton-Up, I remember that clip about the Vette and the FZR back in 90. The thing that I remember the most was the guy on the FZR passing the Vette in a right-hander and he was on the outside with his shoulder against the left mirror of the Vette. Man I wish I still had that magazine.<br><br>Tim <p></p...

Re: Slides not opening

Have you checked for a broken/frayed cable or holes in the diaphrams? Just guessing here.<br><br>Tim <p></p><i></i>

Re: The little things

Isn't 8,000 about where the EXUP Valve opens? That would account for the sudden rush of power. Or so I would think. I don't spend a lot of time in those rpm ranges at this time because I'm still learning the bike. <br><br>Tim <p></p><i></i>

Damn Bikers

Me thinks that the older (ie: older than me 38 ) generation and the yuppie "I wanna start an expensive trend" poseurs are the culprits. I do have many a friend that ride Harleys and they are a great bunch of peeps. Just hate the fact that there are 1%'rs in the whole motorcycling world, regardless a...

Re: Harley Guys

Nay to that TNT. The Triumph's and Norton's are held in pretty high regards by the Hardley Ableson crowd. I think that TAce has it nailed down. I too rode a Honda Shadow ACE, actually that is what I traded in on my FZR. I was acknowledged more on it than I am on the FZR. Do I have a problem with tha...

Re: Harley Fruitcakes

Those are generally considered 1%'ers. But yeah, there are a lot of them out there to be only 1%. I see it a fair amount, but when the sun comes out here in Seattle (not very often I might add) bikes are everywhere and most do wave. I don't think anything of it because I'll miss a bike going the oth...

Re: Oil level

Crazy stuff you guy's are doing. I don't think my "nad's" will ever be big enough to ride a beast such as the one you are creating. Good luck and keep the pic's coming. I'm intrested as to how it all turns out and some of your performance numbers.<br><br>Tim <p></p><i></i>

A lively discussion?

Are we just here to discuss matters or problems that some of us experience along the way with our bikes? Or do we come here looking for camaraderie, friendship, fellowship, and Brotherhood things? I know I wish that this board would become more talkative. AND being that I am in the general discussio...
