    how to polish out a scratch

    My Staintunes also have a few superficial scratches on the left side, probably from a pillion's boot. I'm not polishing them out.

    Nice offer, but probably not a good idea.

    D9 bracket for T100, angled or flat?

    Flat is fine. I have one. The gauges are not perpendicular to the line of sight, but close enough that it doesn't affect the ability to read them.

    Twin clock upgrade

    If you buy used parts, make sure that you get everything listed in the instructions linked above, including the wiring harness and the odometer knob. You proably won't need the wire to the igniter, but you do need everything else in the kit.

    You could have got a center stand, a tachometer, and/or an Arrow exhaust.

    Just for clarification, when I said they're threaded, I meant that they're not sheet metal screws.

    Quick Help

    I don't think they're self-tapping, they're threaded. If you still need to know, respond here and I'll go out to the garage and figure out what size they are.

    Like being on the Chesapeake Bay on a weekday: You'd think you'd see more boats, but you don't.

    Engine Removal Project

    Wow, that's one hell of a job you did/had done on that bike. Good for you for seeing it through. You probably fixed something that was defective from the day it rolled off the assembly line. Whoever buys it will probably not appreciate in what good shape that motor now is.

    Oil Leak at clutch actuator/lever on top of case

    One minute to pull out the old seal and pop in the new one. Several hours for the necessary ancillary work! :huh:

    Oil Leak at clutch actuator/lever on top of case

    The seal is a simple one-minute replacement. Removing the clutch cover is more of a job. The oil has to be drained, you have to remove the breather hose on top, then break free the cover (if it's never been removed), then plan to spend several hours carefully scraping off the gasket bits...

    It'll die suddenly and at an inopportune time. Replace it.

    Manufacturing changes in oil filters?

    On the other forum which shall not be mentioned, several individuals have discovered serious leaking from new oil filter installations, using well-known brands such as Purolator. It seems that the baseplates of these filters now have a convex orientation as one views the bottom (the center...

    T100 Tires

    I really like the Dunlop GT501, unfortunately now discontinued. I'm hoping the new Metzeler Sportec Klassik will become available in the US this year.

    Good point, and if they're beefed up, the Safe-Start won't even fit.

    Engine Removal Project

    +1 for Hermy's, prompt and efficient. It's been interesting to follow this story. I'm glad that it had a good outcome. Hedge, if it hasn't been mentioned already, you might consider installing the Triumph Twin Power starter boss reinforcer widget as insurance against that particular fiasco...

    Hello From California

    I wasn't impressed with the spring "upgrade", which was a stiffer spring. Sure, it reduced the brake dive, but it didn't do much for the ride. The Intiminators do something with the valving and the oil flow--which is why they require 5W oil--and drastically reduce the brake dive and otherwise...

    Hello From California

    You might also consider Ricor Intiminators in the front forks, with the stock springs and 5W Amsoil fork oil, as recommended by Ricor.
