I demand more centerstand threads!

I also would appreciate if someone (or a bunch of people) would mention going on a diet is just the same as taking weight off your bike.

BTW, my cam cover started to leak! Anybody got any tips on how to stop it?

I found that putting Slim Fast in my bike's crankcase helped it lose 20 lbs.

What size jets are you running with the slim fast additive?

I have 200 in there.

FYI, that's the number of jets in the carbs, not the size. The size of the jets is irrelevant. The more jets you have, the better it runs.

you will gain 10hp if you drill out 100 of those jets with a 1/8 inch drill

Make sure you blow in it a few times to get rid of those metal filings!
