  1. I got tired of playing with the Brembo unit and installed one from a Honda.....all the difference in the world.............now if I can only change the wheel cylinder.......
  2. I have done all you have mentioned...The disc is not bent....the wheel spins as if the brake will not release the pads completely.......I am going to try a Honda CRF master cylinder to see if this clears it up..................thnx for you ideas.....
  3. My front brake lever has suddenly gotten real mushy and the front wheel sticks when rolling the wheel...I have changed the pads, bled the system numerous times and rebuilt the master cylinder....Anybody have any other ideas?????????thnx
  4. Break in????whats a break in...I rode the bike slowly for about a half an hour, let it cool down and then let her rip..................no problems so far.....
  5. What about Rotella-T? I heard this oil is good. 10-40 or 20-50? Does it come in a synthetic blend?.....thnx....
  6. I just found out Motorex oil is about $20.00 a quart. Is there any other oil that would work as well and be cheaper? I change my oil twice a month....
  7. I use the Tech 8 bootie in my Tech 10s and it feels great...........
  8. Building bikes are great fun. I have built everything from mini elsinores in the late 70s to aluminum framed 1997,1998 and 2000 cr500s. My latest creation was an electric start, close ratio transmission 2009 YZ450. It had its problems but is now finished and is everything I wanted..............they are expensive to build though...........
  9. Fastway makes footpeg lowering brackets for YZ450s, ao I would think they could make them for Kaws too..............
  10. It gets very busy on Sundays...........
  11. Does anybody make lowered footpeg brackets for YZ450......thnx........
  12. Big guys that are neck challenged(no neck) or large shoulders have neck brace problems. The largest Leatt brace won't even come close to fitting my large sized shoulders and the large A-Stars brace presses into my upper back/lower rear neck so bad that I can't even get a helmet on.
  13. I've had an TKR and would like to get a little more that the 90 degrees I have now. It is now 2 years since the TKR. Would a manipulation of the knee work?....thnx....
  14. I built 3 cr500 aluminum frame bikes from 97 thru 00 and the 97 didn't really feel any stiffer with the 500 motor than the others....you can tell the 97 from the 98 frame by looking at the rear linkage. The 97 had two separate dog bone linkage arms and the 98 had a complete wishbone. The 00 model had a single front downtube that split just above the exhaust pipe.....just my .02 cents......
  15. Dr. Mark, as you are familiar with many rehab and training procedures, are eliptical(sp) trainers ok for training with bum knees. I have had a knee replacement and my son has had ACL,PCL and LCL reconstructive surgery. We have been told they are not for people with repaired knees. Other than swimming and cycling, what other excercises can be done?......thnx......
