Campfire Talk / Re: Even Canada is laughing at us ....
« Last post by Uncle Billy on Today at 09:14:50 AM »
Ultimately what happens or doesn't happen here that involves government is determined by the voters.  Who gets elected on whatever platform is the choice of the people by voting or by being silent ("silence is assent", remember), as was set up by the "founding fathers" that authored our Constitution. 

If the majority of the voters aren't informed, or aren't objective about who they vote for, or don't pay attention enough to learn all that's to be known about the candidates, or don't question the ravings and rantings of propagandists and instead take them for truths in an abdication of their duties to learn and think for themselves, or have forgotten the whole compass of what the US is supposed to stand for, and a host of other irresponsible actions (or inactions) as citizens, then we get a bimodal Congress populated and directed by mediocre intellects with hidden but knowable agendas that won't govern, won't see to the general welfare of the people and a healthy direction for this country.

In short, if the government is incompetent, agenda driven and unable to negotiate and compromise within to get things done, ultimately it's the fault of the voters who elected it.  It would take 2 election cycles to fix if the majority of voters would smarten up and demand objective, intelligent governance by electing intelligent, objective representatives.

Bullet with the UCE engine / The wobbly side stand .
« Last post by AussieDave on Today at 07:48:36 AM »
Has anybody else suffered from their side stand becoming more droopy and not retracting fully leaving play in the spring ?This condition developed on my bike as the soft metal in the side stand eroded against the frame where it pivots .I found a fix today by filing the insides of the stand flat again where it had worn on both inside faces, and then putting in some washers . Now it's stiff again!

Continental GT Cafe Racer / Re: GT Headlight

I have the stock headlight on mine and the battery indicator comes on at idle sometimes too. Just seems to put out low voltage at idle. Either that, or we both have the same gremlins!  :)

This seems like an appropriate place to ask this.....

I just bought a GT that has the 7" light installed. I notice when stopped at stop lights the battery icon lights up. Is this normal? Is this an due to the higher draw of the upgraded light, or do I have a gremlin somewhere.......

Thanks guys!

And the question that I find myself often coming back to is how should we live and behave as individuals in a system that had deserted the interests of the common man and forgotten its founding principles?
The political "system" which most favors the common man is the absence of any system. Political systems are the creations of central planners, and are anathema to individual freedoms. Systems are the tools of corruption and oppression. As such, if any form of system becomes necessary for a society, the most minimal and least centralized power is the least dangerous.

I love it...anyone can buy something to fix it or buy a new pipe. But you "McGyvered" it simple, cheap and effective. That's what I like more than anything.

Hmm......curious....I wonder if something else is at play.....there is a fair bit of  opinion that makes the same observation in the forum,maybe the carbon build up in the pipe?

Makes sense to me. All I can say is , when first attached, ran badly- stalled, uneven idling, backfiring. After a bit, ran much better, held steady idle, smooth fueling under throttle, less backfiring. Maybe it was cold, and just warmed up? Dunno.....just was what it was.

If you can turn a nylock by hand ( no tools) .. It needs to be replaced with a new nylock nut.
