Did you screw the dipstick back in or leave it unscrewed when checking? the bike won't run worth a darn if you screw it back in.

Plus if you don't wipe it off before inserting, the bike will take that as in insult and vibrate for weeks!:joke:

How many pounds of sand to you run in your tires.:shrug:

And how often do you change it to keep that smooth as glass feeling?.

Muffler bearings

Muffler bearings are the real "must do." You won't believe the difference a fresh set makes.

Don't forget the secret of putting a bucket of steam in your side bag for overall better performance. :coffee1::coffee1:

Better yet are "hydraulic muffler bearings", much easier than the standard bearings.

No, but seriously, I try to fill up my luggage compartments with helium every time i pass a party store. I get way better gas milage with a lighter bike.
You guys are falling behind.

This is even better - replace the engine with a nice efficient electric motor. Now just add a couple wind powered generators on the sides of the bike. The faster you go the more power and the faster you go - It's a perpetual motion machine!

GCC is now cured :thumbup:


And I can't believe how much better it handles when parked. :agree:

If you install the roller muffler bearings, you can torque them down to 30 lb ft, thereby creating a muffler damper, which will eliminate the dreaded and dangerous muffler wobble. Of course, none of this will matter if you don't install a muffler brace.

Unfortunately, the Wing only has a baffle in one muffler. But you can fix that with dual cartridge baffles for $2500 that will cure that problem. Do this, and your bike, as well as your life, will once again be symmetrical.
