Re: The Riding Game!

BigTater? the interceptor you own was always my dream bike and I respect you as a smart man for buying and owning one. I did ride one and it excited me the way of all of the sudden it has a sudden burst of power at a certain rpm, but I had a hard time buying a new one cause all the Honda dealers in ...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

It takes between 600 to 800 psi of brake fluid pressure to act on the caliper,,, 45 psi is minor,,, like I said before and repeat again the perpose is to keep pressure on the lines for a much quicker reaction of the brakes such as is required on high speed racing bikes such as crotch rockets,,, not ...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

Wrider? you changed your story,,, NOW you say back bleeding is an effective way of bleeding brakes,,, and you backed off of saying the perpose of the check valve is to bleed off return pressure,,,, the rubber hose brake lines expand with pressure, much of that pressure is wasted by expanding the rub...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

You really need to stop spouting misinformation. Some basics. Brakes work off of hydraulic pressure. Pressure at the lever pushes the cups at the caliper out, causing the pads to push against the rotor, causing friction to slow down the rotational speed of the wheel. Any extra pressure in the syste...

Re: 1600 mile oil change?

I am happy riding alone, when I do ride with somebody else I get tired of slowing down and waiting so they could keep up with me, they can't match my riding skills, i speed up on a tight curve where they slow down and use their brakes, they are afraid to pass a car cause they have no confidence in t...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

I think its funny how some of you people could be so proud and bull-headed that you wouldn't even try to back bleed your brakes, ha ha ha ! I guess the design engineers that over-see the assembly of the motorcycle at the factory are just a bunch of dunder heads because they want to back bleed it, ha...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

Wrider? "its solely there so that you can push the cups back in without having to drain and re-bleed the whole system"? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? THAT MAKES NO SENCE! did you just make that up? The check valve is there to hold some presssure in the line so the brakes react more quickly when you hi...

Re: lately my bike is needing brake line bleeding a lot. hel

yea it does,, its not losing pressure, it never had the proper pressure on the check valve since the brake line was replaced,,,
