    How to clean your gas cap

    I have a bike that had a stuck-on gas cap. No spray penetrating oils would allow the cap to release. I had to cut off the gas cap/tank neck to release the cap. A new one (gas cap) lists for $160+ at, and probably considerably more at your friendly dealership. If you do have...

    Easy way to clean front rotors

    So my front brakes have been catching and I'm finally going to remove them and do it right! So what's the best way to clean the floating rotor bolts? (Or whatever they are called). Also, I want to replace the Allen bolts that hold the rotor on. Is stainless the way to go?? Thanks guys!

    Seafoam or clean?

    Yesterday I changed the oil, tuned brake lines, got my rear tire shipped in, and decided to tackle a bit of carb diagnosis. As it turns out, the right two vgas carbs were about 3k rpm worth of slack separate from the left side... so I adjusted the left side to match the right and now they...

    Hi all. I hope everyone's doing okay and getting some good rides in before Mr. Winter attacks... I was just able to purchase two VERY used front brake calipers for my '86 FZX700. The problem is, it looks like these were baked for a LONG time in a grease-filled oven. They're just completely...

    Clean set-up

    But, I hope something was done about the fuel supply. Or the system is not done getting put together. Don't think the pistons are going enjoy a straight hit, of nothing but the squeeze, too much. It's a nice and clean setup though. .

    Clean up

    When I get a new bike one of the first things I do is clean and wax it. I even clean the parts you can't see. If nothing else it helps you get to know your bike better. I pulled the bodywork off the newly acquired 2001 this afternoon and cleaned her up. I swear it make the bike run better.

    How To: Recondition the Clutch-side Switch Pod

    So I guess it was inevitable that I'd be writing this one up :rofl_200:. But in trying to hunt down the gremlin that's screwing with my taillight mod, I desperately cracked the switch pod apart hoping to find the critter lurking in there. Sad to say, it wasn't, :damn angry: but not a total...
