you shouldnt be able to see it, it should all be in the blinker fluid reservoir.. you sir have a leak. usually a leak like that means your bike is totaled because the frame is definitely cracked.

Just pour some Seafoam in there and presto leaks gone, careful! Your lights will blink white smoke for the next 3000 miles. If all else fails, give it to me.

any in depth repair job or other project (ie: squoddy's) requires a blood sacrifice of some sort to be completed successfully...

hence why so often carpenty diy projects result in misplaced digits..




apparently the spirits of construction & repair have a fondness for fingers/hands.

Brake grease. Put that stuff on your rotors and no more squeaks.

Use cat urine. It has better conductive qualities, and is environmentally friendly.

I installed cross-drilled brake lines for extra cooling.

And Aerostich has some handy items as well, like this analog gps that never needs batteries.
