    Ugh. Nice proof that systems which allow appropriate timing RANGE are a good idea.

    Also many HD owners lug the shit out of their bikes by upshifting too early and don't know what detonation...

    I'd lengthen that slot since there is a fair bit of metal left, and if it cracks one day (unlikely if you keep your transmission snug, many owners let theirs get loose) it's only a tab and very easy...

    Foot meets tiller

    My (highly intelligent, normally alert gearhead/techy) bro Dave sent me this pic a couple days back.

    You probably should since companies which are "one deep" in key personnel can vanish when they're disabled or die, and anyone who was fabbing parts in the 1970s has one foot in the grave and the...

    BTW the Bosch "ice cube" relays (and their sockets) come in different current ratings. Higher is better. You can also parallel those relays for the net effect of a larger relay where desired. BMWs...

    Learn theory of operation and you'll find that freestanding starter relays can be substituted with common auto starter relays. HD did this in their early e-starts using what's basically (and...

    A sprotor can't be too horrid compare to chains but chains are fucking horrible compared to belts for street use on non-extreme HP engines. One way to run chains neatly is Dow Chain Wax but that like...
