    Sticky front forks??

    I have had some bouncy-like shaking for a quite a while now, it feels like up&down movement to the handlebar and isn't the usual woble everyone is talking about. I had same issue with stock springs too, now I have progressive fork springs with 1" lowering and rear is progressive too. Today I...

    Sticky rear caliper..... where to go from here

    I noticed the inner piston was sticking on my rear caliper a few weeks ago. Ordered a new seal kit, put it in, and blew out the caliper with compressed air.

    anyone need a sticky tire?

    Just thought that i would pass on a good deal on tires. The soft hooks better than a shinko 003 U-soft and is better at high speeds.

    Sticky Clutch Problem

    I bought a 2001 two years ago with 750 miles. The clutch has always held onto gear when warm, and has been difficult to shift into neutral. Over the winter, I had a bike shop take a look at it, and they found 5 of the clutch plates stuck together. They separated them and soaked them in oil...
