  1. Hey Jack! I have a RF-1200 I just got a the beginning of the season. I like the fit and feel much better than my X-12 which was much more of a "race" styled helmet. It seems to be as quite as my old trusty RF-1000, that I seem to judge all other helmets to. The new shield system gets mad props at being much smoother than those of resent years, though I kind of miss the "crack" feature of others I've had. If you plan on adding an intercom system like I have, this is a great helmet to do it in, even has the speaker pockets with more than enough room for even the larger ones. The vents work very well, even at lower speeds, though not as much flow as the X-12 I had most recently, but that is the price of a lower sound level and something more more "street" aimed.
  2. I've had a number of parts done at IPS Motorsports in Lewis Center. Those guys have done a great job on every piece and always ends up being cheaper than what I thought it should be.
  3. From Dunlop: It is essential that tire/wheel assemblies be balanced before use and rebalanced each time the tire is removed or replaced. Unbalanced tire/wheel assemblies can vibrate at certain speeds, and tire wear will be greatly accelerated. All Dunlop street tires should be installed with the balance dot at the valve. Wheels may be balanced with spoke nipple weights, lead wire or self-adhesive rim weights. Consult the motorcycle manufacturer for approved wheel weights. Dunlop does not recommend the use of dry or liquid balancers/sealers and will not warrant tires into which these materials have been injected. Tire and wheel assembly balance must be checked with a balance stand or computer wheel balancer. From Bridgestone: whats not covered: basicly no tires filled with liquids or solids not in the tire from the tire manufacture http://www.bridgestonemotorcycletires.com/addinfo/warranty.pdf From Michelin: "Michelin does not recommend the use of dry or liquid balancers/sealers or any other balancing materials. Tires and Tubes into which these have been injected will not be covered under warranty." From Pirelli and Met: "What's not covered:Tires injected with liquid balancer or sealant or in which anything other than air has been used as the support medium." Regardless of the fact or fiction if they work, is it worth voiding the warranty of you tires? Why do these manufactures not "see" beads or other forms other than static/dynamic balancing? I feel that standard high-speed balancing is the best form of balancing. I have been around the motorcycle tire industry for a long time, I have seen it all and new methods come and go. Static and dynamic balancing remains the industry standard.
  4. I'm a huge fan of those Avon Roadriders. I've ran them on a XS650, CB750C and a dirt bike I put on the street. They stick very well, even in the rain. One of the best tires for the money if you have a smaller bore bike or vintage machine. Glad you like them.

    Well guys thanks for giving a guy an ego boost! As if I didn't have a big enough head!! Glad I can help, I just try to treat people fairly and as I would like to be treated. Let me know if there's ever anything I can do to help.
  6. I ran the Rotella Syn in my 7.3 Powerstroke and was never thrilled with it. Made lots of noise on start up, BLACK in a matter of days and it seemed to burn a two quarts between changes at 4k. No doubt it worked, but left lots of room for improvement. Switched to the Amsoil full syn and immediately had less noise at start up, burned ZERO oil for the rest of the 30,000 miles I had the truck, picked up 2-3 MPGs and could go well over 5500-6k miles before the oil started changing dark. The rotella was originally designed for Diesels. I think it sucked in my diesel, so i just can't see how it could be a great in my bike. Yes it probably "works" fine, but i'm sure there has to be a better oil for bikes because it was designed for that specific application (ie higher temps, higher RPMs, clutch/transmission use). I have ran all kinds of oil in may different bikes/atvs/cars/trucks and Amsoil as a brand across the board is the one i'm most satisfied with in all applications. Price is not something that I would worry about for the oil in my toys, if the best cost money than so be it. Though may not be worth it to everyone. Run what you want...
  7. glad I could help! ride safe and enjoy those new Angels. Derek

    Aprilia RSV4 is what i'd buy. They just lowered the MSRP on them. I got the chance to ride the Tuono V4 a while back and loved it, I'd just want the fairings.
  9. I've seen way to many tires no get covered for warranty because of the use dynabeads and simular products. It should be noted that the tire manufactures were not told thats how they were "balanced", they said that the tires showed typical signs of wear problems related to the the fact that they were not balanced. Too many cases I have seen show that they do not work. Some people love them, some people hate them. The only type of balancing that for sure works is lead/steel weights, by either static, bubble, or high speed spin balancing.
  10. When I'm driving a car I get the same number of bikes running high beams as other cars.
  11. My family is big on black cars and I have spent lots of time trying different products that not only work well but also save time. Jax Wax is my choice for quick detailers, waxes and polish. As far as normal washing I try to stick with Meguiars gold class and a grit guard. Another trick i've learned is try not to dry the car with towels, even very soft microfibers. I got a heated, filtered Airforce Blaster a few years ago and its the bomb for drying! It's faster, you can get in all the small places with ease and you will have less towels to wash and dry later.
  12. These should help you find a few parts. http://www.chinesemotoparts.com/index.php?main_page=index&pType=CHOPPER-PARTS&cPath=158_205&zenid=2c5ed5afee5ab416bf5c195c86b2a037 http://www.ezatvparts.com/mini-chopper-parts/110cc-mini-chopper-parts.html Start with figuring out what they did to the wiring. Then check for spark and most likely put a new spark plug in it, maybe have a spare around incase it gets fouled while trying to get it to run. Use the starting fluid sparingly, its not good for motors as it washes away the oil on the cylinder wall.
  13. I love mine, I the middle of doing some motor mods now. Getting high compression pistons, heavy duty valve springs, Dynatek coils/wires and a oil pressure gauge. They are great bikes with just a little work. Adding a Corbin dual tour was a must if you plan on riding any ladies on the back, makes the ride that much more enjoyable in the front too. Let me know if you wanna buy any stock parts, as I've got a long list of them Good luck on finding one!
  14. At the top of my list is my dad's old truck, which later became my first truck. 1993 F150, I don't want one like it, i want that exact one. Still have the VIN written down so I can track it down one day...There's just something about your first truck. then a 1966 Mustang coupe, 289 v8 4-speed blue with white leather. followed by the General Lee, 1969 Charger R/T horns and all.
