I have a UV filter and lens hood to protect the glass, and wipe the body down with a damp microfiber cloth. To clean the actual glass I use zeiss lens wipes.

Plain and simple if the star bike was legal they wouldn't have cared. To many people are terrified of someone getting the unobtainable.

Actually since everything switched over to peacock everything has actually been working. No real complaints other than you can't rewind the live broadcast.

I was debating between this and the Aplinestars A1. Do you think the Split is close in terms of being low profile? Any chaffing if you were it under your jersey? I see a lot of pro's that tape their nipples with other chest protectors.

Good bang for the buck. I'm curious about under jersey bulkiness and fit with a Leatt. Anyone have any experience? https://oneal.com/collections/chest-protection/products/split-chest-protector

I ordered if from Amazon but you could probably get it locally. This is what I ordered NGK LB05EP Resistor Spark Plug Cap this is a cheat sheet on the options https://www.ngksparkplugs.co.za/products/ngk-resistor-caps/

I rode this weekend and the issues seemed to be fixed. It was one of the components I replaced, so stator, spark plug wire or cap. There was definitely corrosion on the cap so that might have been the only issue. I went with a replacement NGK waterproof ... more »

I did a top end. Same compression values as before and still ran like crap. I replaced the stator and spark plug wire and cap. Fired it up on the stand and seems to be much better but I didn't get to ride it yet. It may have been an electrical issue ... more »

I checked the crank seals, they all look good. I'm now wondering if it's electrical. Cleaned the carb and that all looked good too.

Thanks, best lead I got but I have a bad sense of smell hahah. I ordered the seal hopefully it gets here before the weekend.

Added reply in a thread titanium sprocket bolts 10/19/2021 7:01 AM

I don't use ti bolts but I did stay at a holiday inn express last night

. Personally I would use something primer less like loctite 243 and I would not reduce torque. If you use another brand make sure it will cure with inactive metals.
Added reply in a thread titanium sprocket bolts 10/18/2021 12:34 PM

You really shouldn't see any issues with a sprocket bolt, assuming you tighten them properly. Biggest issue with a lot of ti bolts is the threads are usually cut and not rolled so they are susceptible stress fractures. Don't be an idiot and you should ... more »

That's very true. It's a crap shoot with HF. My 3/8" wrench I checked after owning a few years and it was spot on. I have owned it now close to 10. The 1/4" I checked when it was brand new. The take away is all the HF torque wrenches in the office we ... more »

I'm going to plug Harbor Freight hard here. I worked at a manufacturing company where I had access to torque calibration equipment. Between the engineers in the office we checked 3X 3/8" and 1X 1/4" drive wrenches. All the 3/8" were dead nuts on across ... more »

It will be tricky if you try FDM without support material but I subbed it out. I'd really like to machine it out of Aluminum but we only have manual machines at work.
