    F11 Topcoat results are in!

    It has been a long time coming but I just now got around to using this stuff on the bike today. I was waiting for my new emblems to come in before I did anything. They came in yesterday so today I took the old emblems that were bent to hell and back off the "tank" and put the new ones on...

    Very surprised at the results of this experiment

    Very surprised at the results of this experiment but I'm looking for some reassurance. In my other posts you can read about how I am looking to quiet down my Vmax. Someone posted about packing the pipes with steel wool. At first I was skeptical but I figured let me spend six bucks and...

    lotta mods yield great results

    I just bought & installed a PCW extra plate clutch kit, inc. the heavy-duty diaphragm spring & all friction discs. They use Yamaha friction plates in their kits. My 1992 bike w/23,000 miles on it, was on its original clutch. It just began slipping recently when I swapped-on a Dynojet Stage...

    Evaporust results

    Hi Guys, The rust in my xs1100 tank was starting to bug me so I used 1 gal of evaporust and flipped the tank every 8 hours. There is still a tiny bit of rust on top probably because the 1 gal was not enough to submerge that 1 part no matter how I flipped the tank. Overall I am pleased with the...

    And the results of my steering head adjustment test are....

    ALMOST A FREAKING TANK SLAPPER! Very helpless feeling when you are at 110 and she starts the death wobble! :bang head: She was rock solid up until the magic number (so rock solid that I got too comfortable) and then it got violent. That was the result of tightening the steering head up...

    searched and searched with no results, any instructions on installing Mark's exhaust

    I talked to Mark today and he told me he hasn't got around to doing instuctions on installation of his exhaust but he said it was straight forward. Now for someone like me who has never installed exhaust I'm sure I will have all kinds of problems ( mostly second guessing myself ) I search and...

    Compression Test Results

    I did the compression test today and the results were a little strange... Front Left and Right Cylinder were both 150-160 Rear Left and Right Cyclinder were both 180-190 I can't imagine this to be too good... The rears seem MUCH stronger than the fronts? Sorta opposite of an HD...

    Results after 7 passes...

    I had fun, but a little dissapointed. It was a nice cold day, but quite a bit of wind in the face (working against me). My old 89 w/supertrapp slip ons best after a half dozen passes on a warm day was 11.67 at 116 mph. Today on my 2000 100% stock was 11.75 at 113 mph. I couldn't find a sticky...
