    Overflow tank suddenly full

    It's a silicone mash, or at least it looks like it, it's either really old (and needs to probably be flushed) or someone added a modifier to the coolant and it sludged up a little. So here's my concern for you at this point, your lines might have this same mash in it, which is normally fine as...

    Overflow tank suddenly full

    It's entirely possible that while the coolant is extremely hot you can have some slight overpressurization - but that's designed into the measurements for min/max. Once the bike cools does the coolant return to a normal level?

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

    I just put mine on until it didn't click freely anymore. That's snug enough, no need to crank it down further. I also plan on replacing these once a year so the nylon remains flexible and doesn't get brittle.

    What you did to your Tenere today??!!

I went in yesterday and actually torqued down the spokes, just to get them back into spec (like 2k miles since I bought it at the dealership, so not many) - two of...

    You know, I never would have thought to use my vacuum table and kydex like that, but maybe I'll look into adding some desert sand or olive green to my bike. He has a vacuum table and is using a thermoplastic to make these materials. You place the item to be formed onto the table, heat up the...

    If that were the case, a slick of dielectric grease would do the exact same thing once they've been removed. Personally, I'm going to do the "fix" - which is just a cleaning, greasing and sealing.

    Oh that's a solid idea. I never thought about heavy duty carabiners, pulleys and synthetic winch line (not climbing rope in my mind).
