    I’m currently taking a motorcycle safety course and they stressed how much the front brake stops the bike. I’ve read and experienced that the front brake on the cx is not as good as todays bikes. I’ve got the single piston style and I did a full rebuild on it. I bought a new brake hose but I...

    Good afternoon everyone, I replaced my fork seals two weeks ago with the 4 into 1 brand seals. Those seals were insanely tight going on. They leaked out after 2 days. Replaced the seals last week with K&S seals from a local shop. I put superglue in the pits. The pits aren’t that big. They still...

    Good afternoon everyone This is not an easy subject for everyone, but I need to see some stats. Long time ago, My parents were in a motorcycle accident, not their fault. Mom lost her leg from it and dad has a messed up ankle and back from it. Who’s been in an accident? I’ve been told it will be...

    Good evening everyone. Made a post a few days ago about my new fork seals leaking. They were the aftermarket 4 into 1 seals on Amazon. A couple of issues I think could be the cause. The aftermarket seals, poor prep work, or lightly pitted tubes. I’m going to take the forks apart again, clean...

    Good evening everyone, Took apart the front brake caliper and the piston was seized. Master cylinder reservoir is dry rotted. Tried to pop it out with a grease gun, wouldn’t go.
