    replace those side screws with hex headed screws, it's also much

    one to worry about looks...generally I only see a motorcycle when I'm
    about to get on it OR working on it. I don't even polish the cases.

  5. Oh yeah, Jap toolkits were never noted for their quality. But on an old
    classic like that it's nice to have the OE toolkit, in its tray, and the
    OE handbook as well.

    It's not necessary to change brake fluid that often, because my
    motorcycles do not sit outdoors in the weather and it's very dry
    around here.

    I had to change brake fluid and flush out the system on two used cars
    that were either caught in floods or the previous owners forded
    streams with them.

    Hey, this is *not* England. The climate is *gentle* on vehicles.

    I bought a pickup truck, brand new, and drove it for 20 years and
    120,000 miles before it needed a brake job, new brake hoses and a
    brake fluid change.

    The mechanic who did the work couldn't believe the excellent condition
    of the vehicle after all those years.

    There was still adequate front brake pad material, but the rear brake
    shoes were just starting to wear through to the metal.

    No, it is not my "daily driver", I only use it when I have something
    to haul.

    I had to add 2 ounces of fluid to the clutch master cylinder when the
    truck had
    150,000 miles on it...

    keep are still incorrect. AAMOF sitting in the garage
    is WORSE than riding in the rain. But you aren't smart enough nor
    educated enough to understand way, after all you are a loony.

    That is STILL a form of yes and an improper one at that...2 weeks

    okay smarty, you keep believing your own bullshit. Dry desert air is
    just as hard on brake fluid as wet climates...not that I've experience
    with either or lived in either type of environs or owned vehicles from
    those types of enviroment. Oh know I couldn't possibly have the the
    experience much less education to deal with the issues...

    ROTFLMAO you really are a stupid loony tune fruitcake you know that?

    Was, but I picked up the wing in Tacoma (oh the aroma...smells like
    hops brewing) 8^) could be. Granted I've dealt with heavier rain when
    riding in central texas than I ever saw while living in washington.
    <shudder> one time it was less than 25m visibility (yes it was
    raining that hard) and traffic was going 55mph whilst I was going
    60mph...unlike them I wasn't having issues AND really it wasn't that
    bad. 8^) Now days I just ride the rocky mountain front, gttsr is right
    out the back door, all sorts of fun. Like riding around slow assed
    CBX's that are scared of getting their restored chrome and aluminium
    bits scratch on the tarmac...much less impaled on the wildlife. Lolo
    pass isn't even a half days ride away for me.

  16. Snap.

    (It's a bit worrying, admitting that we have this in common).

    Seriously, though, I've collected a lot of 400 Four ephemera over the
    years. Original brochures, factory manual and parts book, some US
    advertisments, original magazines with the first roadtests, a couple of
    *amazing* miniature Japanese-made models (about the size of a penny),
    a Tamiya model kit (still unmade - I've been debating whether to build
    it or not, and have decided the only thing to do is buy a second kit,
    build one and keep the other unbuilt), other odds & sods.

    I have the original warranty and service book... a huge file of
    paperwork relating to the bike.

    It just goes on and on.

    If he is all that you say he is then I should try to meet him!

    I think I'll go to London during the 2012 Olympics and invite him out
    for a pint. The would be a pint of the english brews and I am not
    familiar with any of them.

    I should practice on them here before drinking them their. Where can
    you buy english beers or ales here in Minneapolis MN, the Land of

    Well you could look for Newcastle Brown ale or Bass ale (reputedly the
    oldest trademark in GB) can't recall if Harp is english or irish
    though...pretty sure it's english. Not going to look it up'll do you some good to look up english beers imported to
    america and find out which one your local distributer has on hand.

    The bottle isn't the same. The Newcastle bottle has built-in a
    temperature indicator
    that tells you when it's chilled enough for normal humans to drink
    without grimacing from the bitterness.
    If you can drink Newky Broon that hasn't been chilled below 50 degrees
    F, your taste buds are *dead*.
