    Could the issue be that your pads are compromised/contaminated and you're experiencing a non-progressive "grab"?

    Too much washing and ckeaning. Could try the water trick. This reminds me, I bought spare pads and have no idea what I did with them.

    What's happening to them? Is the nipple breaking off?
    I put a softer hose on mine and also I always pull the hose off at the other end, not the cap end when re fuelling.

    What is failing? My bike was running odd yesterday, as if it was starving for fuel and I suspected the gas cap might have not been venting properly.

    Pads are fine & the braking is phenomenal. Like I said, I've just become sensitive to the rotor movement. I'll adapt.

    I grew up in the 60's and 70's. Those plants look familiar...

    I broke the nipple off my gas cap. Drilled it out, ran a 5mm tap, screwed in an old main jet (after drilling it out a bit). Attached a new overflow tube. Walla!

    Oh no, a whole new world opens up - jetting a gas cap. Would Amal, Bing or IRZ jets work best?

    Changed from 10/42 to 10/44, did a quick ride, and is much easier to go slow. But tamed it down, so there is less pow in second and third, which may be a good thing for me. 102 link chain ERT2 1005201456-00.jpg First still goes up the big stuff with power to spare. 2nd and 3rd seems easier to manage as well.

    Yeah I am running 9 and 39, which is perfect for me. Your gearing would still work for me, but I got less teeth and a smaller chain. :D

    Just thought I'd throw out a plug for one of the TRS dealers. What few parts I've needed I've been getting from Miller Ranch Trials in NY. Don't know em, never been there, because they are 1000 miles away from me. I've always got my stuff same week, order on Monday and receive by Friday. This time it was on Thursday for the gas cap. And they don't gouge you on shipping like some other distributors. $4 to ship the cap half way across the country.

    Thumbs up for Millers. Will take calls, fast on replies, know their product, will have things drop shipped if they don't have it, good people.
