    Is this a good lift point for the bike?

    I've got a craftsman jack I think will work if I put about 4" of support in the circled area. I don't think lifting from the back of the motor will get the front end up so I also need to know if I can also lift from a bit further forward, directly underneath the oil pan.

    Good Non-OEM (Cheap) Starter Clutch?

    Well I’m getting that starting noise that signifies the starter clutch is on its way out... Anyone have positive experiences with a cheaper option than OEM? Also, how do these typically fail? Will the bike just not start one day? Or is this doing damage? Thanks, Connor

    All, I have my engine prepped and am about to remove it from my 85' for transmission problems and am trying to figure out the easiest way to work on it. Is there a good stand out there for mounting the engine that you guys have used? Right now I'm going to work it on the floor until I split...

    Indian Scout Bobber. Lookin' Pretty Good

    I tried a Scout and it was too small of a bike for me, but I sure do like the look of them. And I think these new ones look pretty spiffy too.

    I took the cover off my Vmax, disconnected the Battery Tender Jr. and slide it out to the middle of my garage on the new improved motorcycle dolly I bought last summer. I wheeled the Vmax off the dolly and put one of my rear wheel stands on, now it sits waiting until tomorrow to get a good...

    A big thank you to a good guy!

    This goes out to my friend Jon, AKA blaxmax. Over the last few months, he has become a friend. I've had a few problems with the Max, and he very kindly sent me parts to diagnose/fix the problem on more than one occasion. For free, because that's what friends do. I know there were personality...
