NEED WARMERS for Sat 9-13-08!

My front ChickenHawk crapped out on me (the 'lil temp switch broke off)...

Ordered a spare set about 5months ago, but they haven't come in yet...

THANKS!

Meet me in a few days and you can borrow my single temps. for that weekend as I'll be out of town anyways.


...and no I am not in good enough shape to hit up the trails in Memorial, but I'm getting used to pedaling again instead of just pushing or turning the gas.

Just get some rain tires, the wind won't matter because of aerodynamics... ha


I can't loan mine out for long as I never know when I'll get a wild hair and go ride again.

These "tire warmers". What do they do? Keep your tires warm when you're riding or something?

Yup, just leave 'em attached to the tires while riding and you'll have better traction (the soft, warm fabric grips the tarmac).










Thanks for the bump, I think...

Upgrading muffler bearings is after you switch to Motul synthetic blinker fluid.

will I need one of these to do it?

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...products_id=21


I was also thinking of adding the adjustable power band

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...products_id=30

and the engine oil bypass kit.

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...&products_id=8

What do you think about the crossed drilled brake lines? Will they improve braking performance significantly?
