    One would be wanting larger gearing changes than can be accomplished with a tooth or two on the rear while not ending up with large changes in chain length. Most modern sport bikes (from early 2000's...

    I am not familiar with your carbs and the needle/washer stack. Did that lower the needle or raise it?

    My 1100E came with a similar setup when I bought it. Didn't run that great with it, but that was the fault of the shop that tuned it not the single filter. It certainly is an easier to tune option...

    I agree with Buffalo Bill, that sounds very rich. I would leave the main jet alone for now and lower the needle one notch to see if that improves things. Only ever change one thing at a time, never...

    Try the same test with the choke pulled a bit. If it improves you are likely lean right at that point, if it gets worse you are rich. At least this gives you some idea of which direction to look....

    I used a 2 line set for a 1200 Bandit and simply plugged the lines in the anti-dive units with a shortened banjo bolt. Been working fine for well over a decade now.

    If you have aftermarket cams then ask the manufacturer first. If you are using stock cams, then GregT's numbers are a good place to start. I went to 106I/108E on my 1100E and it was a major...

    I'm sure there is some of both in that recommendation.

    First, stock cam timing can be all over the place. There is plenty of tolerance stack up and wear available to significantly alter it from...

    As noted, it is pretty pointless on our bikes and will greatly accelerate the corrosion on your headers if you ever get it wet.

    Since no one has talked about the performance benefits, I will. It...

    This sums it up. It isn't obviously safe or dangerous and everyone needs to make their own decision on running tubeless on rims not designed for it. Lots of people do it without issue, but I'm sure...

    I am going to talk to them as well. I am retrofitting a set of 2017 R6 calipers onto my 1998 ZX6R and need a set to adapt between the ZX6R M/C and the R6 calipers at an oddball length.

    No, I run the 5W40 all year round in my truck (GMC Duramax 2500) and bikes. I live in western Canada and it never gets hot here like it does in the southern US; 5W40 is better for the cold starts in...

    Am I missing something? How would the headlight kill your battery when the engine is running? The light turns off as soon as you turn the ignition off, so it's not like it has a chance to drag the...

    But you can use a standard 3 pin solid state flasher if you are willing to give up the auto-cancel feature. Mine never worked, so I don't miss it at all.

    I've never used it, but I expect it is perfectly fine to run in your 850 if that is your goal. Diesel oils have extra anti-wear additives and no friction modifiers so they generally work well in...

    A new OEM clutch cable is $25, lasts many thousands of miles with no maintenance at all and has solved every problem I have ever had with a hard clutch pull. Why mess with success?
