    Cast or Forged

    The article does a good job explaning both sides. What I said wasn't a 100% false. Forged pistons are stronger, no doubt. From my experience they where down nikasil coating much faster, and seem to wear oval. Mic an old one. Cast pistons can crack, but usually when left in way too long, or the bike has improper jetting etc. I still would use OEM.

    Sticky Front Axle - Hard To Center Fork?

    it's from pounding your axle in with a hammer and mushrooming out the end. measure it. taking a grinder to it a trimming it down may help. or a lathe if you got the conveinence

    broken lever caused a lot more probs

    sometimes when a bike falls over like yours did and brakes a lever, it puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the stock hose and can expand it. the stock hoses are not very sturdy. if the hose gets just a little soft spot in it it will never build pressure again. try a stainless... just from my experince at least.

    OMG! Airbox fan

    it would not work!you can't force air into the atmospheric side of a carburetor. have you ever seen a super charger sit on the carb. It's a hoax

    A hotter plug isn't going to do anything but put a hole in his piston. An iridium isn't going to fix a bog either. I'd suggest mounting it behind your number plate some how.

    Factory Question..

    not if you use the really cheap hairspray like they did in the 80's. aquanet. also works as good fuel for shooting potatoes.

    Easy pull clutch system

    I'm still curious as to why making the actuator arm longer will cause the basket to notch out quicker?? Not to sound mean but it doesn't make any sense to me. Anyone else notice this?
