Smart move. I remember leak goes something like this:

1-2% = Ideal leak or freshly built engine
6-7% = Race teardown
10% = Production teardown

Question, is that those DOT slicks on your bike in the pic, you been telling me about? lol, Nice bike.
how am I using the front stand upside down? yes Rear is a 200/55/17 Pirelli Supercorsa SP which is the DOT slick . the Michelin Super Sport is the same thing.

Coolant flush? Means: hand squeeze the lower pipe to run the bubbles out of the lines so the bike does not overheat using less water you just pour and top off? No... turtle trick or pop a head gasket more or less is that trick.

Shims? Means: first set the valves so you have zero tight valve keeping the valve open to fake a compression test. You are not going to spend a dime on this bike until you find out how much compression the bike has [left] cold. Book says to check hot, but the day you walk out to that bike and it does not start... it's cold. I want to know that number first before I need a rebuild; with a new chain and sprocket going nowhere.

Check the sync on your throttle bodies/carbs? Means: now you will finally complete the engine and chassis tune is this last one on the list. You already installed a new air cleaner, new plugs, new oil and filter, new liquids/lubes.

i will perform a cold compression test, and then perform a valve shim inspection hopefully this monday. I work tuesday through saturday. i do want to find out the compression on each cylinder, maybe do leak test as well

Re: 02 954RR 20K Tune up

Yep 2hp loss, but they last. 2.5hp gain on my FZ1 dyno sheet, came with the bike. Doesn't work the same on every bike. But if the bike comes with it, I'm not going to throw it away! BMC on my old Bking was the best filter I ever tried.

Re: 02 954RR 20K Tune up

I do not have a K&N due to same thing. I hear you lose power. OEM is best as far as air filter.

K&N is ok, in so much as it's re-usable, but you will drop a couple of HP using one, OEM is the way to go for full pony's. BTW i'm not making that up, there's a thread somewhere on here where they tested the same bike with different filters on a dyno. Oh and i use K&N, but then i only ride on the road.

I'm going to go way back into the old basics is that nothing has changed too much, fella.

No delusions here. I do not tell you to change your ways do I? I'm not bossing you around to tow the line. I'm more my own man, can put one leg down the trouser like everyone else. Too bad if I hear the beat of a different drummer, you are out in the public with all the whack jobs.

Live in the now? Ha! If you could only see my bike. I've raced for decades, dude. If I wsd scared of death I don't think that's the sport to get involved with about being scared of dying or getting hurt? A hd mech, scared of dying, not up on the current computer bike, man you need to stop while you are ahead.

Here comes the silence though. I asked you point blank, how many times have you lubed the front end and setup the steering correctly or more like basic assembly? You sort of skirted on that question and I more nailed your neglect than you trying to figure out what brand bike I work on, scared to mix oils anshit.

You need to be a man and accept others as they are.
Me I have never lube up the front end. My steering damper is adjustable so I adjust on the fly when needed.

New to the quote format in a forum I gather. Catch22 is the hog tech.
02CBR954AD, your opinion of harley's match mine perfectly.

Your CBR sounds dandy. So, how about those pictures you promised?

Re: 02 954RR 20K Tune up

Like I said, they all take DOT 4. Only a guy that can't use emoticons would focus on that out of the rest.
Everyone knows DOT 4 works in DOT 3.
I knew you'd go back to 1970 to fail at wishing you could make a point, and again, your flatulence got the best of you.
Each post you manifest a childhood desire to elevate yourself higher.

Your way or the highway? More delusions of grandeur. Your past is forgotten by all. Deal with old age. Live in the now. Too scared to see what happens when you die or something?
