    Rusty Chain....

    i've always had good luck w/motor oil a bit messy but let the excess run off & turn the wheel a bit to get it worked in.it seems to work great.

    street bike deaths

    i am36 yrs old and have been riding for about 16 yrs and have mainly rode in the dirt but i have owned a sp 125 a 93dr350 a 86 fj600,mylast street bike i bought w/cash an 02 cbr954rr,no doubt this was a great bike and i could handle it if i gave the bike the respect it deserved,but i made the mistake of being stupid and tried to pass an older lady who was going too slow me,as i made sure i had clean pass she proceeded to turn left onto a side rd.i'm glad that she wasn't injured but i am mad at myself as i lost a 10,000 dollar bike + i had to pay for her 900.00 bluebook car from the ins.co. for about 1600.00 because i was cited for an improper lane change and no proof of insurance which i could not afford.anyway just respect your bike and dont be in a hurry because it can and will take your life,also sorry for the long post!

    Rusty Chain....

    from what i've heard you shouldn't use wd-40 on an o-ring chain,like i said this is only hearsay but you may want to check it out.i think the issue was a deterioration of the rubber o-rings

    Cleaning your air filter, why...?

    the filter can be cleaned! simply wash and rinse,then use your pref of air cleaner to re-lub! btw i have found that motor oil works fine! just my 2cents!
