    75mph freeway ajustment

    Went from Downey to Landcaster last night was getting blown all over the place pulled over in burbank loosened triple clamp so that i could slide fork tubes up so that they stick out above clamp just under 1/2 inch they were flush to begin with dramaticly tighted up the bike and the way it handles the wind. i know with almost all ajustments you have to lose somthing to gain something not sure what i lost but 75mph on the freeway is way better and almost was enjoyable I LOVE THIS BIKE KEVIN


    Kool so everything is as it should be and thats just the way it is! Sorry for caps. I hate the 405, and the 710 its got pot holes the size of small jumps and at 75 mph + changing lanes with a car 1 foot infront of you 1 foot behind you and 6 inches on both sides getting airborn aint no fun and if you look in the car its a woman talking on a cell phone,putting on her make-up while reaching over the back seat to smak her kid and gives you a look like you aint going fast enough but i love this bike alot . I'D RATHER OWE U,THAN CHEAT U OUT OF IT. KEVIN

    how long can coolant sit need answer asap

    llooks are important smells rank at the top also but put a blindfold on with a big old fasion cloths pin on ur nose and ya have to taste it to really know so take a drink or 2 swiss it around like a vetren wine taster if you die within the hour coolant is excelent 2 to 4 hours till death 50% dont kill ya but puts a hurt on ya in a irreversible kinda way weak and should be replaced although im just guessing again
