John, I broke a “goal post” many years ago. I did not JB Weld it because i knew it was not gasoline proof. I just reinstalled the float and pin as-is. It worked fine. Yours will be also as long...

When I did my pickup wire repair on my current xs11, I did something unconventional. As I remember, I did use half of a butt connector on each wire as a crimp. I think that the oem length of the...

I have a bike (78 with 81H pipes) where I have to install the centerstand for maintenance purposes because it will not retract. It is easy on/off.

I have to say that 4 into 1s are overrated. I had a set of older (Chrome) Jardines on a 78E that had oodles of torque at lower and mid range rpms under throttle that would crap out at 95 to 100 mph....
