It is an approved method of extending front tire life.

Dunno.

No speedo.

And every time I open the throttle more than about 1/4 the front wheel tries to go Space-X on me.

I'm guessing maybe 75mph with current gearing.

Changing the countersprocket from 13 to 14 tonight for enhanced mpg/rpm sanity.

so, check this shit out:

i bought this bike from a dude who seemed squared away. bike in superb shape. tesst rode around the block twice. everything seemed SAT.

Thursday I rode 50 miles. My first ride on it. It was great.

Last night I decided to do an oil change.

I pulled the drain plug - AND NOTHING CAME OUT.

WTF?

There was NO OIL in there.

None.

Nada.

I was doing whoolies (closed course).

HORRIFIED!

So I fill it up and start it up.

ANd I can hear, at first, every moving part in the top end. Clackitty clackitty clackitty. I hadn't noticed before because I ride with earplugs.

And after like three seconds, as the oil fills the ports and channels I hear the top end quiet right down, like you put a pillow over it.

NOW it sounds like a Honda engine and not a John Deer.

I changed the other side as well (two oil reservoirs) and that oil looked new.

I think dude did the maintenance, changed the filter and drained both oils, but then forgot to fill the engine side. He only filled the tranny side.

I rode today, and it runs beautifully. What a fun ride.

Oh, BTW: I am totally to blame for the no-oil thing. My responsibility to check-out my ride.

Thanks to Honda.
