Re: Difficulty shifting into neutral/reverse

Seeing some of the stuff that goes into shifting a stock rig, I'm glad I never have. I installed the Raceway combo tank shifter before I ever rode it. I just tickle the clutch a bit while moving the lever and it snaps right into whatever gear I select. PS - I hear tell there's an extra neutral or tw...

Re: Getting a spark to fit heads

Good winter project though. Might even get another horse out of the beast ... <G> Anyway, improving fuel burn and scavenging can only be a good thing, and I'd expect having the fire zone set proud of the head inside would give a pretty big dead spot, or at least slow fire that would probably give yo...

Re: Time To Bail Out ?

The stories some could tell. Even a bit of truth in some of them. ;-} Few years back I was riding the ridge down on Arkansas 7. Weather was bad enough I think it even had me hallucinating some - could have swore I drove by a giant abandoned amusement park in the middle of nowhere? <G> https://i.pini...

Re: Difficulty shifting into neutral/reverse

Good move. I can't remember the last time I had to search for neutral since installing the Raceway tank mount reverse lever on my rig. Lever is down for normal use, up for reverse, and a simple up/down for neutral. Can't say I miss the stock lever one bit. PS - I hear changing oil or fine tuning the...

Re: Time To Bail Out ?

Reading this thread has me wondering if it's time I hung up my spurs ... (no, dammit, not ready yet!!) Pushing 70 here, and the last few springs it's a soul search to ponder whether I've got another season in me. The accident a couple years back hasn't made the decision any easier. A two wheeler is ...

Re: Getting a spark to fit heads

Copper crush washers are handy little devils. Just pounded the crap out of one on the anvil to make a really thin washer I needed to take some slop out of some shifter linkage. Check out the Dorman catalog if you're bored ...

Re: Getting a spark to fit heads

Maybe double up on crush washers when installing? The bike won't care less one way or another how much of the plug is outside. That should give you a pretty decent fudge factor as well for getting the depth just right. Bonus project - find an iridium plug that fits. Better spark pattern, excellent f...

Re: Front Cover Oil Filter Conversion Oil Kit NIB

Will this work with a cross pipe exhaust system?

No idea what retail on this stuff is ... seems like a deal though.
