  1. Carb cleaner will dissolve it with very little effort. You may use quite a bit to clean things up but it works.
  2. Zoinks!@! Whatever you hit had some serious mass to make a hole like that. Better that it hit the bike and not you. Consider that your lucky day. Buy a lottery ticket. 😉
  3. I'd check the main fuse. It's there for exactly that reason to prevent frying the entire system. Should be a cheap fix - one fuse or fuseable link.
  4. This is a rider with their priorities in order. 🙂
  5. Yes, you're probably right. I guess I'll add a torque wrench to my arsenal of tools. 🙂
  6. It's a bit of an odd suggestion, isn't it? Both my new bikes have the same recommendation listed - replace the bolts. I don't even own a torque wrench and haven't replaced those bolts on any of my bikes over the years. I just do them up 'tight-tight' but not 'too tight' and haven't had an issue. I guess technically they could work their way out from vibration and use but it seems incredibly unlikely. Another of life's calculated risks that I'm willing to make. 🙂
  7. Hi superfunkomatic, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  8. Wow! Looks great. Very thorough going-over of the bike. I'd like to rebuild mine at some point. Looks like a lot of little bits that haven't aged well. Mine has been sitting since 2004, so I guess I'd have my work cut out for me. I'm enjoying seeing how all the parts are removed and the rebuild.
  9. I'll speak with the weather gods for you. 🙂 Went for a 250 kilometre ride yesterday and it was still around 8-10 celsius when I returned. I'm hanging in there as long as I can.
  10. Wow! Trusty V-four motor just keeps ticking away. It's a really fun and versatile bike.
  11. Still going in Alberta. We had two feet of snow early in October and I thought that would be the end of the riding season. Now we have had a couple weeks of really mild weather and possibly one more. I'll keep going until probably last week of October maybe more if I'm lucky. In 2016, I had the longest riding year and was able to go until the second week of December. It's an El Nino year this year so maybe I'll get lucky again. Fingers crossed.... When you're considering replacing your battery you might want to think about the lithium batteries - long life, less weight, better cold starts and roughly the same price. Worked really well on my VFR.
  12. Indeed. Really enjoyed your company at the meet last summer, too. Our paths will cross again. :)
  13. Well, as luck would have it, my original statement holds true. I wasn't sure if I'd be going in spite of already booking the hotel room, and, I won't be attending after all. That will free up one room at the hotel if someone is still interested. I'll contact the hotel today and let them know. I hope everyone has a great ride and time. Mike
  14. Booked. I'm not sure if I can actually make it yet but I've booked a room just in case.
  15. Love the roads around that area and of course Highway 1. Great riding and scenery. Thanks for sharing.
