Re: Bike is running out of gas with a full tank

It almost sounds like the gascap vent is plugged. Once a certain amount of fuel has been sucked out by the engine, there is more vacuum in the tank than the fuel pump can over come. Opening the cap should allow you to hear air rushing in. Then it's good until it builds up vacuum again. If that isn't...

Re: Oil pressure prolems on my shadow

Sounds like you got a stuck ring, meaning the ring is stuck in it's piston groove and not sealing to the cylinder walls. This let's cylinder pressure past the rind, pressurizeing the crankcase and pushing oil out. The ring is likely stuck to the piston by gum/sludge/other goo and so not stuck very h...

Re: Where did you learn?

I learned by trail and error. Dad got tired of me asking him to fix my bike by the time I was 8-9. He cut me lose and told me to fix my own bike, but he did teach me tons by answering the billion questions I had every time I broke a bike. Since that probably isn't an option for you at this point, I'...

Re: China to build 20 new cities a year over the next 20 yea

From what I heard about China, they are built out of the rejected export toxic wallboards. The only thing they care about less than other countrie's people is their own people.

Re: China to build 20 new cities a year over the next 20 yea

I don't claim to know much about the global economy, but I am positive I'd love to get my bike into one of those empty cities and just rip it up on those empty streets.

Re: Contact Lenses

Personally, noticed no real changes in my migraine patterns when switching from glasses to contacts. Maybe slightly less with the contacts due to less eye strain, but too close to call for sure. As for air conditioning, it doesn't bother my eyes, and I lived in a very dry environment until very rece...

Re: Contact Lenses

I only run into the underground guys in the change room, and then only briefly. They tend to be showering and nekkid, and I ain't all that comfortable having a long discussion with a guy who won't put his dam clothes on, lol. And I ain't a mill mutant yet. I'm a smelter rat for 4-5 years yet..... Un...

Re: Contact Lenses

I wear extended wear contacts (wear 'em 30 days and nites, then toss 'em and put in a new pair) and never had issue one with them. This drastically limits the amount of time I spend poking and touching my eyeball. Behind a pair of wrap-around lenses, they are no different than no contacts as far as ...

Re: Toyota - now that the damage is done

I think, and always thought, this was a farce. Engines throttling up and running away with no reaction to braking, transmission gear changes, turning the ignition off?..... Not possible. Some idiot stomping the wrong pedal and panicking.... entirely possible. A bunch more greedy morons wanting to su...

Pretty tuff to say without pics.

At guess, I'd say it's a gasket, but I can't see your bike from here.
