Re: Starter would not stop

Short in the solenoid is a distinct possibility, it happened to my Patrol going down the road. It felt like a Jake brake, and the starter was clearly audible.

Re: Big Beemer Boxer (1800cc)

I'll bet BMW prices these in the mid-$20's (USD). If I were looking for something like this, the Triumph Bobber TFC is more appealing to me, at a significantly lower cost. Not so suprisingly. BMW R18 First edition, $19,870 BMW R18 Standard edition, $17,495 Triumph Bobber TFC, $17,500 Looks like the...

Re: Homemade face mask for Foilheads

Here in Washington we're under "stay at home orders", but still allowed, and even encouraged to leave our homes within certain guidelines.

Re: C-19 and the Ural Community (Corrected Title)

Most are attributing it to delivery drivers unwilling to work in those hotspots. I wounder about that. The terminal I work at has the opposite problem with forced and voluntary days off and reduced hours. Some guys are really clamoring for more work. My company will allow employees or those with fa...

Re: Steering Damper

I just bought a 2015 Sportsman Adventure model with 1700 kliks that had not been serviced since new. Giving it a once over I discovered the damper was leaking oil. I was not thrilled with the idea of replacing it. I thought, what would Ivan do? So I pulled it off, unscrewed the endcap, and poured o...

Re: C-19 and the Ural Community (Corrected Title)

As you can see no issues to shortage of TP now. But normally TP would be one single shelf (top to bottom). To make room for all that TP a lot of other stuff is now missing and unavailable and I'm not sure what it is? Maybe the next things/products to worry about: Being in transportation I can see f...

Re: Setting the clock

Bike battery. There's always power to the speedo to run the clock and maintain some memory functions. The parasitic draw of the Acewell's clock and memory functions would be an interesting study. Knowing the millivolt draw over time might just be an academic distinction, but one still worth knowing...

Re: Homemade face mask for Foilheads

I make 20 + stops a day doing pickups and deliveries, there's the people I come in contact with at our terminal, plus the goods and equipment I handle that others have before me, and will do after me. My company hasn't been able to acquire masks, gloves, or sanitizer for the drivers, dock, or office...
