My front end wants to start to wobble sometimes when I slow down to about 40 mph. Ive seen in the forums that this may be because of the front end fork stem nut may need tightening some. Or the front tire. Im putting on new front and rear tires in the morning. I keep reading about the fall away test but none of my manuals tell what it is or how to do it. I can imagine but I dont know. How is it done and what do I need to do it? Im sure some one out there knows and is willing to share it with me. Thanks
Hey, sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, i wasn't sure where to post, but i am a new rider and i am looking to get a road bike as my first. I'm 6 foot tall and 90kg/200lbs, i am looking at the ninja 300 or the Honda 300R so far, but ive read that they might be too small for taller riders. i wouldnt say im exactly tall but im only 18 and plan on keeping the bike for a few years and i dont want to out grow it etc. Just looking for some advise really, is a 300cc bike, particularly the ones i mentioned, going to be big enough and powerful enough for me, or should i be looking at something a bit bigger?
Well, the time is almost here for me to take the engine out of my Road Glide and send it out to get the bottom end done. A lot of things have changed since I decided that I was going to put a new engine in my Glide, things such as displacement, cam choice and using the stock cases vs. buying brand new ones. These decisions were all based on the fact that I was intending on having a new bike by now but instead I bought my wife a really nice bike, so my way of thinking is that I am going to build something that is still powerful, but not so powerful that I can't trust it. After all, Hot Rider and I need to ride out and see Red, if he doesn't kill himself by then. So, in JohnnyBiker fashion, I am going to document the project here. It has been a long time since I have done this and...
I have a problem with my rear brake. It takes a lot of brake petal pushing to do much of any slowing down. I put new rear caliper and pads, new master cylinder and have terrible brakes. I have to push very hard to make brake light come on also. Maybe that means something. I need suggestions if you guys can help me. Thanks B Nick
