    Weird Pricing

    On Amazon, there are these rear shocks : 340mm RFI air shocks which supposedly fits the Vmax.

    Weird caps on plugs

    So as I'm investigating and fixing things on the '86 I found a little cap screwed onto one of the spark plugs. I'm out and haven't checked others yet, but let's assume they're on all the plugs. What the heck are they? It made it basically impossible to push the plug wires onto the plugs. I'll...

    Weird Carb Noise

    Hi, I noticed when I start my bike there is a spritzing noise coming from what appears to be the right-rear carb, just below the round metal disk. It became less evident as the bike warmed up but it still happened periodically, especially as I bumped the throttle. It sounds like someone is in...

    Weird Busa!

    Strangest thing I've ever seen, I can't even fathom in my head how this works, or why? What would be the point???? Just another way to validate the saying, "just because it CAN be done, doesn't mean it SHOULD be done."

I'm guessing its leaking where...
