    Plaka, haven't you been reading the 'cam chain parts' thread?

    I think you'll find the 'cam chain parts' thread interesting.
    The discussion was polite, and shed a lot of light on the tensioner operation.

    Why would you need a pillow?
    That's just ridiculous when you've got six cushions.
    I can't see a hooker (a smoking one) er... (one you smoke from) on your list.

    Grapes. You didn't mention grapes?
    Or a leopard skin loin cloth for that matter?

    A friend of mine had them too. Made riding any distance a problem he said.
    There must be some good treatments available these days?

    I thought that was what the aforementioned Sharpened stick was for?

    "Some months ago I dropped my favorite Fluke multimeter flat on it's face. It died. I took it all apart, poked and prodded and eyeballed it all up---no joy. Still dead. With a heavy heart I set it aside. They are no longer made and the modern model is pretty costly."

    Send it to Fluke. For a flat rate fee a fraction of new cost, they will rebuilt it, update it and send it back like new. A major reason pros buy Fluke.

    Hehe, funny how we imagine the worst things first. My heart stopped cold once when I had total power loss, revs were dropping while throttle was wide open, I thought I'd seized it. It turned out to be the the rubber slipping on the throttle twist grip, whatever glue was holding it on had turned to slime in the sun, allowing the return springs to slowly close the throttle while the rubber grip stayed still. Had to squeeze it really tight to get home, but I was laughing all the way.

    If only we could all be as deep, insightful, and philosophical as the OP.. alas, we cookie-cutter, mouth-breathing posers wither and pale in comparison, knowing we will always fall short of the glory of the Plaka.

    Either you're in your 20s or you're being ironic! Damn my simple mind for not being on your level of understanding!

    Don't read, just skim, you post too much BS to actually read, creepo, and because of this this, that is why.

    He doesn't really bother me.. but every time I checked this thread, I only found pages of mind-numbing rants about how the entire rest of the world isn't up to his omniscient level. He read a philosophy book once and now wants to analyze everyone.. which, of course, is totally necessary in a vintage motorcycle forum.

    Surely that would be a psychiatry book! A philosophy book would encourage acceptance over analysis

    I put it through Google translate, English to English.
    Still didn't make much sense, as seen below.
    Gonna run it through a few more times, and see what happens.

    I do not see asshats Unless you share 'em. If you want to pay attention to to em, do it elsewhere. Do it here and the quick way to handle it is to add you to the same shitcan They live it. Either I do not see you. Ever. K?


    This has come up many times from many people and no doubt will come up many, many more times. You get known by you Have you quote. if a lot of people Have the shithead is unknown, you irritate them all. They'll ignore you too, and will not say anything. I will. Ounce.

    Thanks.
