Video of you hooning down main street?


am seeing that now...
lighter seems preferable.
should prolly look @ slave for leakin first.
My VStrom had a leaking slave cyl. Corrosion in the bore. Replaced it with OEM and flushed the system. Part was $80-ish. Master cover calls for Dot-4 brake fluid. Same as the f&r brake masters.

106 ktm miles. 4.5 gal of t6 and a 4 way wedge lugged home. Rear tires gettin bald, time fir an oil change. And the kraut dodge van needs an oil change two.
Sprinter, or Grand Caravan? If it's in the Caravan family, sell that POS before it falls apart...

I took the trash cans off the ElectraGlide, put 'em on a shelf.
My buddy MeatNo was rite, kinda' has a Mad Max look without 'em.
I kinda' like it.
My numbskull thinks a big set of plain leather bags would be more appropriate, no tin conches, no metal/chrome rivets, no fringe,,,just a set of thick leathr bags.

I did take the beast for a short ride the other evening,,it handles like a barge!
That 88 will thunder pretty good if'n you crank it up and bang thru the gears, stock pipes/engine put a grin on me mugg.

garbage barge was nother pet name for them.
susp is likely air or air assisted. fiddle w/it & tire pressure.
look for loose spokes.
factory had "good nuff for who it's for" mentality in handlin dept.

Spokes, eye watched a vid about all the shit loose and needing attention.
Rear air shocks were tended to, 20psi is where it’s at.
Steering rudders seem a little low, knot much room to adjust with the fairing.
It’s just a different animal, compared to others eye have ridden.

Did eye mention the big goofy smile when the go handle is twisted ?
