Using drill press to hold down bit driver and turn chuck by hand, to remove stuborn carb Phillips screw is a great idea.

Want a smooth, less vibrate handle bar? Fill handle bar with lead shots. bbs, or even sand.
To top it off! install bar ends. :idea:

An old passenger peg from a honda motorcycle clamped to the engine guard with a u-bolt makes for a great highway peg. For the hack side, just cut a piece of magnetic heater duct cover and put it on the top of the hack nose. Rest your foot up there and no scratching the paint.

To fill your final drive with oil without making a mess or fabbing up a tricky funnel, get some baby bottles. The ounces are clearly labeled on the outside. Simply cut off the end of the nipple and inverted into the FD fill hole. The clear bottle lets you see when the oil has drained, much better than guessing with ketchup/mustard squirt bottles (plus you don't have to measure your oil, pour into the ketchup bottle, then pour into the FD).

Baby bottles also come with protective caps, so it'll keep it clean for next use.

Want to get rust out of your old tank?
Cut a couple 8" sections of small chain (dog chain). Drop in tank, put cap on, put in little PB blaster, WD 40 or not. Wait till wife out of town, wrap tank in blankets, stuff it cloth dryer, stuff more blankets if needed so tank will not flop around. Set dryer on air only setting, turn it on for couple hrs. Remove chain with needle nose plier.
You will have a clean tank and wife gets new dryer.
For single guy w/o dryer use neighbor portable concrete/cement mixer.
For HD guy, strap tank to back seat of hog and drive around the neighborhood. :wink:
