    No Toil Filter Treatment

    According to the MSDS the No Toil cleaner is 95%-100% Sodium Carbonate. Oxy Clean has some Sodium Carbonate. This stuff is 100% Sodium Carbonate: For cleaning out the water based No Toil it works very well. Remember.....WASHING SODA....NOT BAKING SODA.

    When a leak down test shows somewhere in the range of 8%-10%it's time to look at the top end. Maybe it will just need the valves worked on or maybe it will need rings or cylinder work. Maybe all of the above. After the leak down test more diagnosis is needed to determine what specifically needs to be done.

    With 4k miles you are probably in good shape. Keep an eye on the counter shaft splines. They can wear on those bikes if they have a lot of street miles. If you use a high pressure grease on those splines it can help prolong thier life. Great bike. I had one. Sold it with 11,000 miles on it. I see it at D37 rides now and then, still running great.
  5. Looks like you could walk on top of the marine layer clouds. Cool.
  6. I received a reply from Senator Feinstein and Representative Scott Peters on this. Feinstein's letter addressed the issue directly and said she would oppose the tariffs if possible. But it also sounded like she may not have much say in the matter. Like Bags said, the letter may have been better addressed to the executive office. Scott Peters reply was a joke. Did not address the issue at all. But, at least i got a reply, so maybe, someone looked at the letter.

    Looks like some good stuff. Thanks for the pics.
  8. Me too. Brian Jones is a good one. This shows that "taking action" does get at least some attention.
  9. Some video of the ride. Lot of quality lost when imported into and then viewed on youtube. But it still is sorta OK. Very fun ride and camping trip.
  10. Awesome ride ! Thanks for setting it up Mr. Oracle My photo contribution: I'll get some video up here in a bit

    Chix dug me.

    The brown one was a friends trike. Yamaha 175 engine. Talk about bad ass. The red one was only a 90, but it had chrome forks. Nice hair, huh?
  14. You can borrow my leak down tester. It's all set up for my 2012 350. I haven't tried it on my new bike. It needed an adapter or extension or something to reach down that deep spark plug hole. And then that had to be reduced in diameter. I'm sure we could make it work.
