    • Best Mod I ever did was put a bitch on the back. Nothing makes a bike sexier.

    • Would that be an inflatable mod or the real deal ? The inflatable mods are much lower maintenance.

    • Yeah, I think you're right Lance. I do remember reading how the NASCAR boys found that the pulses from each cylinder can affect overall cylinder exhausting and re-filling. Of course, they run much higher RPM's but it's the same principle...I think I'll just let the wifie ride hers for now as is...

    • just know it messes with inline 2 cylinder honda's and I've had to fine tune things. I'd say mess with baffles before messing with a slave tube.. or find new pipes

    • thank you very much for the advice that makes sense

    • $5K for everything, or 1700 for first in the pic, 1300 for second in the pic and 1200 for the third. The third is an 86 that's been converted to a quad. But he's NOT interested in selling ANY of the parts strore separate.

    • Yeah, the quad would be cool for novelty, etc. But he didn't say what kind of conversion it was (Astro, etc), getting parts for it could be a PITA, and I don't like quads. I don't see why he doesn't want to make some cash just selling some of the parts individually.

    • That's what I'm thinking. He's got a frame, forks, looks like an engine/crankcase, gas tank, front tire, etc.

    • I had same problem. Got to point of not riding bike as wouldnt start after a run. New battery and regulator and s/h starter - no change. Cleaned leaned to starter and poitive battery lead. So far this week has started every time. Fingers crossed.

    • Had any luck yet Adam Slothman Troth?

    • Its the lead to the starter motor, don't waste money on rectifiers or batteries.

      Take the starter motor out and take it apart, put a new bolt in, clean the commutator, copper contacts with fine scotchbrite pad, plastic pan scrubber stuff, green is ok,wrap it round the copper bit and twist it round, clean with a clean cloth after. and run a toothpick in between the copper segments to clear out any carbon.

      Put a bit of vaseline on the terminal bolt after cleaning and refixing the lead, with the boot on... it should now be sorted.If it was the starter clutch it would be spinning and/or making a noise.

      The starter CAN still turn with a corroded terminal, but stops when it cant turn anymore as theres not enough power.

      If you do buy a second hand starter(why?) strip it and clean it before fitting.

      Good luck.

      A3 would be easier to scan but it means it would be too hard to print out copies for yourself.

    From last few days whenever I start my bike via self starter, the trip meter and clock resets, No matter if engine is cold or hot. I have filled distilled water recently and used the bike for few hundred kilometers to allow it to charge fully but the problem is still there.

    Bike is taking self though cranking is little slow along with trip/clock resetting.

    Battery is stock - Amco brand which is now four years old. Over 16,000 KM on odo

    What you guys suggest? Should I replace it now or use it until it dies permanently. What should be the perfect replacement? New Amco battery is 700 rupees and Exide is 1250 rupees. I am thinking of getting Amco battery!

    7 comments
    • Yes, better go with AMCO than Exide. Exide, I hate it. :)

    • Got Exide Xtreme zero maintenance battery for Rs. 1200 after returning the old battery. Warranty period is 18 months. Self starter is now firing the engine with just a notch of the starter button.

      The guy checked my old battery by shorting both terminals using a wire and water was coming out of two cells which means two cells are not working.

      I was looking for Amco but was not available anywhere near my area.

      Now this battery is labelled as zero maintenance and the person told me that there is no need to add water ever in this battery unlike the stock amco battery. Is this true? Also he has not connected the overflow pipe with this battery stating that battery is sealed?

    Today I heard a funny noise I have decided is the chain slapping on the center stand, and I went to adjust it and its at its max adjustment with still an extra 15mm of slop. Can I just remove the master link to take the chain off and then grind/punch off a couple of links and feed the chain back through? Or should I buy a chain breaker and do it on my weekend? How urgent is it that I get this done?

    I have V&H longshots on my 2000 Aero, but no baffles. Anyone know some nice sounding baffles for the longshots? I am haveing some trouble finding some. Thanks!

    9 comments
    • I dug out my old longshots and it looks to me like they just had the standard baffles. They were VERY loud. A lot of fun at times, but didn't go over too well with the neighbors (at least the non-rider ones closest to me). Anyway, I found them to have a little more volume than I wanted, especially for longer trips, but slip them in and see what you think. They''ll definitely be a little quieter than what you have now. From what I can remember, they should make the tone a bit lower and more pleasing, but still leave you with a lot of volume. And they'll still attract plenty of attention!

    • I called v&h and got the origional baffles and got them in, like you said, didn't take the volume down too much, but it does sound a little lower. Is there a way to get it a little more like the Harley rumble, or maybe my idle is just a little high.

    • Ditto. I think the sound is much nicer with the quiet baffles, deeper, but still plenty loud. Personally, I converted mine back to OEM. Not quite as loud, but a very nice rumble, plus I just like the retro look better. And you can always do the baffle mod if you want more volume. I'll post a photo from today's ride.

    • thats the hope I had with mine a little under a year ago. Unfortunately I am all too aware that without a complete strip and resto of the bike I'm going to nickel and dime myself insane. Should have just did it while I was still in the service and seemed to have all of the time in the world.
