Solracer is AWESOME

Chris helped me out a lot in installing some new parts on my bike. Took a lot of time out of his day to help a young rider and I am forever grateful. Learned a lot and had fun...who knew there would be a lot of gay jokes when your working on your motorcycle? Especially when bleeding your brakes

Also, riding at 3am on 2004 is intriguing, spooky, and lonely. Just you, your thoughts, and the shadow that's mysteriously in the distance..I thought I saw a ghost

FYI my Carbone Lorraine SBK5s and Spiegler lines are fantastic

yeah i rode to cali on year on I-10..

in the middle of the night with cloud cover, no light anywhere except that of my headlight. I KNEW I was in an open "desert" type area. but no lighting made it feel like driving in a tunnel. It creeped me out seeing some kind of wild animals eyes in the dark. they were BRIGHT GREEN as i rocketed by it... i could see a little of the reflection momentarily by brake light... being "watched" by something other than human was a disturbing feeling when all you saw was glowing eyeballs..and nothing else from several hours being alone.

cool that he helped you out..watch out tho, he may take you up on the leg humpin..

lol I had another Asian in my garage tonight, haha.

His bike is now running fine too.

I think my mother in law might think Im working for the asian mafia. lol


BTW, David, dunno if your idea worked, but I just gave them time and gravity bled them. I need a ****ing air compressor and a vacu bleeder.

You ain't kidding. At night, you start to wonder when the damned road will end.

Is there a trick involving an air compressor when bleeding the lines? I am putting some new SS lines on tomorrow (and calipers and master). I have a mighty vac, but I like learning new methods.

he talked about being alone and creeped out while driving in woods, and i had a story that was within the similarity.. ever drive in COMPLETE pitch black. with nothing but the headlight? no moon, stars..nothing. its like driving in a tunnel. you cant even see the the full width of the road.

and then told him that it was great SOL helped him out, but beware of offer on leg humping..

agree.


just make sure you KNOW what the fluid your draining/replacing is.

DOT 4 and DOT 5 are INCOMPATIBLE.. if you go from one to the other a COMPLETE BRAKE PURGE will be necessary.

Im still partical to the drain hose being SUBMERGED in a container w brake fluid, so as you pump/release air doesnt get pulled back up into the system but fluid does. You can even continuously pump without pumping/cracking the bleeder screw. And it can fit in almost any bike too.

Problem solved
