Did you work the same mojo on the Smith that you do on your two-wheelers
Boo, the rim tape matched with the tank line, should have kept it.
We just checked the crank to make sure it we in spec. It is still at standard which is good. Radiusing the crank is always a good idea. If I had needed to turn the crank, I would have sent it to the shop that Comstock Engineering uses in Denver.You've got to be real careful with retaining a proper radius on the crank journals, or they can crack. Maybe it's only on 750s & 850s, but it is critical.
Lastly, LaseDave went shopping for me and bought this for me. I greatly appreciate the thought, but unfortunately the wife will have to eat them as I am low carb/Keto these days and shy away from sweets. Thanks Dave, I am sure Dances With Curves (Chris) is jealous, and that is what motorcycling is all about sir. LOL.
Well, there are 5k miles on the rotors, one stocker was $370, still less than the upgrade rotors which would be in $700 range, just trying to economize in the face of the crazy inflation present in our time.Stock rotor? You didn't take this opportunity to upgrade her to some galfer wave rotors? What happened to the Doug I used to know? You know, the "Mad Modder?"
How much for your OLD machine?Update on the shop business. I bolted the No-Mar Pro Tire machine I bought from Eulogite to the floor of PPSS. Why did I buy another tire machine? It does wheels down to 7 in and cost me less than the ATV wheel adapters for the RC100 Machine. So, I got out there and bolted her down with bolts and in the floor anchors. Easy job, lots of fun.
