    Bummer. I think they are hard to bleed anyway, and designed with a little free play, even after the earlier recall. I glued a thin shim in where the adjuster makes contact and vacuum bled, tapping on all the fittings and lines, etc. Never gonna change fluid unless they get spongy on me. Do you have steel lines? Good on ya Gene!

    WTG, Blues!
  6. That's from My Cousin Vinny in case anyone doesn't remember.
  7. About what specifically? I once wondered if my 20 y.o. wrench was accurate. Clamped the socket thing in a vise and hung 20 & 40 pound weights from the handle, which is a foot and a half, so I had to do some math. It was in fact dead-on-balls even though it has been leaking oil for long time. That said, I think the easiest thing to do is to leave in the drawer. As far as I know, I've never under-tightened anything; specifically a head bolt on my brother's Omni-024...
  8. Now I can't make it.

    I'm going to try to run 365 miles this year. Already on track to do 730, but that's unlikely to last.

    2019 Challenge

    41 miles running in April. 136 YTD. Have started going 4.0 miles every couple of days; just gotta stay at it and start in the early morning as it gets hotter...
  16. I, naturally, liked the GSXR1000R the best, over the S1000R & MT10. Didn't like the CBR at all. The Yamaha Eluder is a big joke.
  17. Looks like I forgot to post here: In!
