    Footrest Comparison

    When I was considering the upgraded footrest it was a little difficult to get a feel for a size comparison. Now that I have purchased and installed them I thought it might be helpful for anyone considering the same to get a little bit of a better idea for comparison.

    Throttle Body Cleaning - Cleaners Solvents Prohibited...Really?

    The statement below is printed in the owners manual. Can this really be sufficiently cleaned with just a cloth? Throttle body should be removed from the vehicle and cleaned with a dry microfibre cloth, usage of throttle body cleaners or any similar...

    Fly Screen Question

    The answer may be obvious but if I don't know I am simply going to ask. It is obvious as to why a touring screen (windshield) is clear however why does the fly screen only come tinted? Seems like a clear one would function just as well and not "stand out" as much and maintain a cleaner look. If...

    GPS Trackers - Are They Effective/Worth Installing?

    I've been trying to decide whether or not to install a GPS Tracker on my Meteor, however despite my research I'm not sure I can yet make a wise consumer decision based on what I know thus far. As such, I would appreciate any input as well as experience with any brands anyone has used or is...

    2 VIDEOS! - Motorcycle Transmission and Motorcycle Clutch Operation

    As a retired teacher I can't help wanting to share good instructional aids when I see them. These two videos illustrate (with superb animation) and explain the operation of a motorcycle transmission and a motorcycle clutch with such clarity as I have never seen. I thought others might benefit...

    Regular Unleaded (Ethanol) vs Non-Ethanol Unleaded

    Our manual states to use a "minimum 91 RON" which equates to our (here in the US) 87 octane AKI or (R+M)/2. I've always used non-ethanol in my lawn equipment and after doing some research I ran across this statement: "So no matter what type of motorcycle you have whether it be carbureted or fuel...

    Flashing Brake Modulator or Safety Alert LED

    Has anyone installed either of these devices or similar with any success? The LED seems to be the easier way to go however the shop manual says the rear light is not serviceable and requires replacement if any difficulties occur. It seems odd to have to replace the whole assembly when...

    Custom Air Brush "Meteor" Gas Tank Ideas...Submit Yours!

    I remember back in the 60's and 70's many chose to have a custom air brush scene or images applied to their gas tanks. I don't see as much of it today. And yes, I definitely remember all of those vans of the era with some exotic paint jobs as well. As such, I thought it would be interesting to...

    The Flashing Wrench (Service Reminder) - How To Reset Video

    This information was discussed briefly in another thread however the video was a little hard to understand for me. Here is one I think makes the task much clearer and IS slightly different from the one I found earlier. Hope this helps anyone looking to perform this task.

    Motorcycle Lift

    I no longer desire to lay on the floor or sit on a five gallon bucket when performing maintenance on a motorcycle. I'd like some input on a lift. I've seen a few via the internet. One for example is pictured below however Harbor Freight can be a hit or miss proposition sometimes in my experience...
