    Re: Scooter down - not me

    I too am unclear on how "laying it down" helped out here. Whether you're upright or sliding, a T-bone is still a T-bone. Of course once you lay it down you lose all braking ability as well as...

    Re: Oil on tires

    I'd be extremely careful with running that tire anywhere close to the normal limits. In my experience, oil permeates the tire material and you cannot just wash, rinse, or scrub it off until the...

    Re: Questions for zx14 owners

    I found two things about my ZX-14 to be uncomfortable for daily and long-distance riding.

    1) The bars are too low for me being 6'2". But the Heli-Bar risers were quite helpful.
    2) The seat is...

    Re: Take care of your C14

    I guess I'm not really clear on what makes C14 maintenance "unreal". The recommended services and intervals are not really any different from other Kawasaki's or most other Japanese manufacturers...

    Re: Need some advice on 2008 Concours

    Nice! Yes, the C14 is somewhat top-heavy but the ZRX is every bit as top-heavy IMHO. The C14's will generally run forever. Serious problems are very rare. Biggest issue is the exhaust cam...

    A tip on those rubber seals between the plastic and the engine. They pull out fairly easily but can be really tough to put back in. Try dipping or spraying with WATER. They slide in easily and...

    Re: major problem with new 2017 conny

    Did you look on your delivery documents? While I didn't buy mine new, the PO did give me the original package from the dealer and there is a paper in there with all the serial numbers from the bike.

    Re: anyone have a newer C14?

    It's almost always the cam position sensor o-ring. Murph's Kits has one that will stop the leak permanently:

    Re: anyone have a newer C14?

    The C14's are a bit tall but at 6', you should be able to flat-foot without any problems. I'm 6'2" with 34" inseam and I can stand a good 2" above the seat, perhaps a bit more when I'm wearing my...

    Re: Rocket launch will prove Earth is flat

    He says: "The rocket should travel about a mile at a speed of roughly 500 mph." So I don't see how that equates to 1800 ft, or 18,000 ft, or anything other than 1 mile. Regardless of speed, a mile...

    Re: Thoughts on receiver hitch bike hauler??

    You're going to be right at the limit with a "dry" ZRX and well over the limit with a "wet" ZRX. So I'd be very cautious. I'd also be quite concerned about the strength of the receiver on the...

    There is an energy difference between E0 and E10 gasoline but it's slight enough that it's difficult to measure in a lab much less on the road. But the shelf-life of E0 is MUCH better than any...

    Prime suspect here is a bad battery. Take it out and take it to an auto shop and have it load tested. A common failure mode is an "open" in the battery. It will give full voltage under no load but...

    Re: Torque wrench suggestions

    I've become a fan of the Kobalt tools from Lowes. I have two of their torque wrenches (1/4" and 3/8") and am very pleased. But I also have an HF 1/2" wrench and it works great as well.
