  1. Today
  2. i also sent a donation, don't need the membership discount! glad to hep👍😊
  3. Lol. Appreciate the confidence. It will be cheap enough to try.
  4. I'm thinking a man of your caliper and age with skills that surpass most others and without the confusion of having to check things with 2 eyes should have a great time figuring out whether this would work for you.
  5. I'm actually considering something like this. The color would look good on the breather covers of my silver trike.
  6. As you all know, finding chrome accessories for the RSV has become nearly impossible. I was looking for chrome air breather covers and though I did manage to find one set, the price was crazy in my opinion. So I started looking for alternatives from coming up with my own or vinyl wrapping what I have, having the stock coves chrome, etc. Vinyl wrapping seems like a decent idea. Have any of you tried vinyl wrapping small parts like the breather covers? I don't know if I'll do it myself or just take them to somebody but it looks like something that I could do myself relatively cheap. One advantage to vinyl wrapping the stock covers is that I wouldn't have to switch to the K&N filters. I've used them before and had no problems but some feel that they let more particles into your engine. Also, vinyl wrapping opens up a huge selection of colors and etc. I was initially thinking chrome but I've seen some very nice carbon fiber options in various colors.
  7. I would think they would be if they are the right numbers and installed correctly.
  8. Me thinks they are just there because they have to be and hold the pieces in place. 2 bars, upper and lower hold the bike together along with the engine which is part of the whole integral piece. FYI, check the bolts holding the right side lower frame member to the main frame to make sure they are tight.
  9. Yesterday
  10. On an 83 venture, the bar that runs from the front to rear of the frame, low across the motor, one on each side. Are these structural parts or just to hold fairing parts in place. My bike doesn't have the fairings any longer and if not needed structurally I'd like to remove them. The fairings were just too boogered up to save. I plan on running this without the fairings. Thanks in advance
  11. Sent 'em a few bucks. Not worried about getting credit for yearly dues.
  12. I have coolant coming through the vent hose from the engine block back to the carburetor. What causes this?

  15. Don, Please no credit. This site is worth more than the $12.00 per year membership. We all do what we can.
  16. Funny how those packages just keep on coming..... My house too... But I'm swapping out 2 golf cart batteries with 1 lithium in the trailer... And it's not just a swap! Lot goes into the move. I'm learning as fast as I can....
  17. Very nice. I have used the reverse a few times just because it had it but i Think I would be ok without it too.
  18. Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a trike. I was blessed to find a 07 in VERY good condition, and it has a Hannigan Kit on it. All it needs is a reverse and being ridden a whole lot.
  19. OH, one more thing. If you want to do this but prefer to remain anonymous, just sent me a PM after you make your donation.
  20. We have offices in Florida and close friends in Port Charlotte FL that too the direct hit from the storm. They were out of town on business and found out late yesterday that their house was fine. I was somewhat suprised by this as they are on one of those finger canals about 1/4 mile inland. Here is part of a report (I handle the business continuity for our firm) I do. Ian and strengthened back to Hurricane status as a cat 1 storm. Tracks and models still look for a 2nd US landfall in Georgetown South Carolina around 2:00pm today. As of the NOAA report at 5:00am it is in the Atlantic east of Georgia. Landfall likelihood:
  21. OK folks. Here's the thing. Many of you have met my son Dylan at past maintenance days. He has let me know that his finance's mom and day have lost their home in. Florida as a result of the hurricane. They are retired and living on a fixed income and are in. dire need of help. Alyssa, my son's finance, has set up a Go Fund account to help them and though I have made a donation, I know it's not nearly enough. So I have been trying to figure out a way to further help. I know that many of you would help for nothing but I don't want to ask you to do that for a family that none of you know so I've come up with a plan that I hope will raise some money for them. For each of you that donates at least $10.00, I will add a year to your membership here. That means that you are actually helping them for free. If you donate $20.00, I will add two years to your membership. So this will still cost me money but at least it won't be a lump sum out of my pocket. So if you wish to help, please go the the following link and make your donation. This will help them and will, in the long run, not cost you anything. Sorry but up to two years free membership is all I can afford to offer. So $10.00 will get you an additional year and $20.00 will get you two years. You actually save a couple of bucks on your membership dues. If you choose to donate, just reply to this message that you have done so and I will add the time to your membership. If you can help, that would be great. If not, I totally understand. https://www.gofundme.com/f/my-parents-recover-their-home-restore-hope?member=22367435&sharetype=teams&utm_campaign=p_na+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer
  22. So the reason for the lock up was two tiny bolts.....I wander if that's the reason they sold it so cheap
