    Putting UFO wheels on a diet.

    I've always hated the weight of the Maxdaddy wheels from UFO. I had no idea how heavy they were until they arrived. So, to date I've tracked down (with help from Sean) the supplier of the roto forged blanks and the company that machined them. I've also found a company local to me in Brisbane...

    Putting on Silencer Gaskets

    Trying to swap out my front header pipes with the Delkevic OEMs and can't get the silencer gaskets on the back end of the pipes without them breaking apart... Any help on how to get those on in one piece would be greatly appreciated...

    Starting issue after putting on its side

    The TL;DR version of my solution: Always use an actual gasket on the stator cover. I just used RTV at first, and it's spec'ed so tight that it binds up without the spacing provided by the gasket. I leaned it over yesterday to do some work (was having an oil leak near the stator wires, so I...

    Is it worth putting forks from a 96 onto an 88?

    I just bought an 88 Vmax without progressive springs. The bike came with a set of forks from a 96 that are thicker (I guess?). Do I need to bother switching to the 96 forks if I put progressive springs in the original forks? :ummm:

    Putting a Smile on the Worlds Faces

    The Pope and Obama are on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front of a huge crowd. The Pope leans towards Mr. Obama and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary...

    putting engine back together after fixing trans.

    I don't have the side cover gaskets or oil pan on yet. Any reason I just cant use the rest of the yamalube silicone I got instead of buying gaskets? I think it would work just fine what do you think?

    Putting some feelers out

    I have been trying to sell my 2002 Vmax for about a month and I think I have a solid buyer for it this week. However the buyer wants it pretty much bone stock so if it goes I'll have some parts to sell and will post them here first before it goes to Craigslist or Ebay. The buyer does not want...

    Putting down your bike... like a boss.

    So yes, if anyone has seen me post you all know I just got my bike and just started riding it. I took a three day course before I started riding it and it had a lot of good info, some things you simply dont think about. One of those things is how to properly turn. As they teach it...

    Finally got around to putting up a few pics

    I finally got on the computer and decided I had better put up a few pics of the winter progress on the bike. Since deciding to keep it I've started making a few changes. I picked up a new body set from RMsportmax. I ordered and installed a new brake light. I'm halfway finished installing my...

    putting a tube in a rear tire??

    I needed a tire repair today, my ME880 rear had a nail on it, and still has several thousand miles left on it. Oddly, the place I have gone for small repairs over the years now advocates installing a tube in the tire rather than using a plug. I've had a long history with them, so I let them...

    Putting strobe light in the stock turn signals

    I found and bought strips of strobe light that are ~ 2.5 inch in length and ~ a little more than 1/4 th of an inch, I checked the turn signals and it can accommodate two of these strobe lights. The question is how do I bypass the blinker unit and let it provide a continuous current when switched...
