Here's a few omissions that I noticed:

chrome* - Chrome plating is a finishing treatment utilizing the electrolytic deposition of chromium. The most common form of chrome plating is the thin, decorative bright chrome, which is typically a 10 µm layer over an underlying nickel plate. It imparts a mirror-like finish to items such as metal furniture frames and automotive trim.

anodizing* - a technique used to coat the surface of a metal with an oxide layer. It may be used to increase corrosion resistance, increase wear resistance, allow dyeing or prepare the surface for other processes and coatings including paint. Anodization changes the microscopic texture of the surface and can change the crystal structure of the metal near the surface. The process derives its name from the fact that the part to be treated forms the anode portion of an electrical circuit in this electrolytic process.

Highway Bars - thick, often chrome, tubes that connect to a motorcycle's frame. Designed to protect the engine in case of a collision, but popular for their appearance. Popular with cruiser-style motorcycles.

Highway Pegs - foot pegs mounted to highway bars that allow the rider to stretch his or her legs further forward for a more relaxed riding position. using such pegs prevent the rider from having immediate access to the gear shfter and rear brake

rich - condition where the optimum mixture of fuel and air is not being fed to the engine, too much fuel, not enough air; opposite of lean

lean - condition where the optimum mixture of fuel and air is not being fed into the engine, too much air, not enough fuel; opposite of rich

Backfire - Explosion of the fuel in the intake manifold, exhaust muffler or carburetor, but often used to describe the explosion of unburned fuel in the exhaust system.
I think "exhaust muffler" should be removed from the definition. A backfire occurs through the intake side, IIRC.

square - In the counterculture movements that started in the 1940s and took momentum in the 1960s a "square" referred to someone who clung to repressive, traditional, stereotypical, one-sided, or "in the box" ways of thinking. The term was used by hipsters in the 40s, beatniks in the 50s, hippies in the 60s, yippies in the 70s, and other individuals who took part in the movements which emerged to contest the more conservative national, political, religious, philosophical, musical and social trends.

Queens Cowboy = member of the RCMP
Meathead = Canadian Military Police, who actually do have the power and right to pull you over on any street in Canada and issue a speeding ticket or any other driving infraction citation. Not to be confused with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or RCMP.
Always ask why.

I freakin love the dictionary! Thank you for doing it. Here's a good word.

NOS - New old stock. OEM bike parts that are no longer in production but are still in stock. If NOS are available, they are a good resource for rebuilding old bikes.

Slinger-- A bike with a centrifugal oil filter. A centrifugal oil filter spins the oil at crankshaft speed. Because dirty oil is heavier, it’s trapped within a canister that surrounds the filter assembly.
