    You must have some massive increments between the settings then, every bike I've owned is notched on the adjuster with differences that can barely be measured without a micrometer. Like I said the...

    I see that now, but it changes nothing in the way that pre-load adjustments have no noticeable effect to the issue of ride heights or rake/trail alterations. There are many people that want to...

    Scraping the flexible bits is okay, that merely tells you you're done leaning. It's the solid parts you don't want to drag as that's what levers a wheel off the ground and you get no warning on that...

    While that was an excellent description of rake & trail, adjusting the pre-load on modern suspension is not going to have such an effect. At least not an effect that can be detected with anything but...

    One bullet point that needs to be realized is the (original) Softail design is far from a decent suspension system. The shocks are "backwards" meaning they expand when the swingarm compresses and...

    Granted we're talking about an 80ci EVO that doesn't readily apply to the formula back then, but in the quest to produce the biggest and baddest the bikes subsequently got heavier and Harley's long...

    Look at the bright side...1100 V-Star owners have to remove the front head pipe to remove the oil filter. Remember the claim how oil is best changed while it's still warm? :mrgreen:

    For my wife it's shoes & furniture.

    "Oh, you want another bike? Where are you gonna put it? By the way I want this, that, these, and, those..." and it usually ends up costing more than the project...

    Been watching Forged in Fire lately? The one where they hacked up a perfectly good pair of red CB750 Nighthawks?

    For the full effect you need to either have someone film you riding off or you film someone else riding it off. The driver's seat sites forward of the tailpipe(s) so you don't really get to hear...

    Once a chain is worn there's no salvaging it. You can try to tighten it, but if it truly is worn it will just stretch again on the same ride after you tighten it and that familiar clattering noise...

    For one thing, it's tough to find a new Japanese cruiser. Many of the bikes they have labeled as "cruisers" are actually YABOB standards.

    Taking a cue from the Shadow line, I'll guess the Deluxe model was a color option other than black and something else thrown in that the Standard doesn't have (like extra chrome)?

    They're retro clones that didn't sell well, the $10K+ price tag could get you a lot more bike in terms of performance (ABS was offered as an option that further increased that price) --- for example...

    New bikes in showrooms typically haven't had the fluids added yet and don't get them until after the sale. You'll be able to see the loose battery cables as well to confirm this step hasn't been done...

    It shares the same motor with the Grom (and also re-released for '19 Monkey), so 55mph shouldn't be an issue as that seems to be a minimum claim from Grom owners.

    For their sake I hope it does better than Harley's failed attempt at that platform (Sportster XR1200).

    When speaking of cruiser bars, for the most part they tend to be good for low speed oopsies but turn into bear traps at higher speeds. They just don't make them like they used to, it's as if they use...

    Kawi's 125 Eliminator typically pulls 60-65mph top speeds so I don't see why Honda can't do the same.

    $3600 might seem like a decent price in today's market, although ten years ago you could get a...
