If you examine the hose and find that it is full of black dust, then the alcohol has eaten it up. I replaced mine with an alcohol resistant hose from advance auto. The problem is that the hoses...

Yeah, I saw a guy at the station put 100 gallons in a speedboat when the price was abut $4.50/gallon. That $450 would have bought a lot of groceries.

Here in Palm Beach there are a lot of people with boats that have to use ethanol free. So they jack up the price in order to gouge them. Unfortunately, bikers pay the price. I've been told that...

I changed to a 15/45 ratio a while back and there was no noticeable improvement in mpg. I have seen 80 mpg under two conditions. When I was first learning to ride and never went over 45 mph. And...

You can't buy a case half because they are a matched set, but the whole thing is about $30 on ebay if you go that route. Personally, if mine was like that, I would be thinking in terms of some sort...

OOPS!

I just looked at your photos. Now I feel bad. There is supposed to be a cam chain guard that goes around the sprocket on the crankshaft. In your first photo of your last post I can see that it is...

I thought there were alignment pins that the gasket can sit on while you put the cylinder block on. There shouldn't be any noticeable gap under the straight edge. If you see any, the manual tells...

Just the new sleeves alone are $75 each. Don't know about others, but my machine shop has a $50 minimum charge. So that's $200 minimum to go that route.

Purple or similar will get most of the carbon off. You can get the carbon out of the cylinder wall and then I would still hone it as a minimum. If you have a drill press, it will make the job a lot...
