Well if synthetic is DOT 5 and that is the best, organic must be DOT 0.01. Can't be all that good, can it? Of course it's non-toxic but it's supposed to be blinker fluid for cryin' out loud. Who eats blinker fluid anyway?

Doesn't matter, EVERYTHING comes with a prop 65 warning.

Not to hijack the Thread but,

This Winter I'm planning on adjusting the tension on the Piston Return Springs.
Does anyone have a Pilot Wrench I could borrow?

Also, I'd like your opinion on this, The Friendly Cat's Paw. I think it would be
perfect to use out in the rural areas where the Spandex Commandos like to ride.

Just replace them;

The Cat's Paw has some possibilities, but I think I'd like it better if it were propane powered.

The reason ya crack me up is this malarkey about winter air/ summer air. Who is going to believe that? Stick with the basic rules and you will never go wrong. Low humidity air for sports bikes and high humidity air for cruisers. Its worked for years and the old guys reckon if you stick with the rules you need only service your tyre valves annually. Now pass me the striped paint so I can finish doing the VTX. Its gunna look great in five colours.

You are in the southern hemisphere, and your toilets swirl the opposite direction so things are different there than up here in the northern hemisphere. Low humidity air I sport bike tires results in less traction when taking left hand corners up here. It's all about the earth's rotation and such. At least that's what 95% of all climate scientist say.


Striped paint is harder to come by up here, especially in the US, because they aren't on the metric system.

Have your ever tried plaid paint? Scottish riders love this stuff!













Striped paint is boring by comparison...
