        amazing...maybe even a little better then the usual ones. It sprays on in a more

        There was no sign at all of any discoloration or etching of any parts I used it
        on.

        Hi Gary, Sorry to hear about your missing shock. Setting the front forks back to stock turned out to be a very good starting point. The damping s spot on.

          Hi Gary,

          Sorry to hear about your missing shock.

          Setting the front forks back to stock turned out to be a very good starting point. The damping's spot on. The preload's a little soft, but I'm guessing that's because it was set so high for so long (spring sag). My guess is that I'll wind up at just a turn or two more on the preload and be done.

          The rear shock...full preload is a touch excessive, but it's not bad enough to warrant changing it. I'll trade a little stiffness for the cornering clearance it gives me. Having played with the preload on my LegendTT, I'd guess that "perfect" for me (6', 210lb) on this shock would be about 1/2" of thread showing.

                      I talked to one of the product specialists at Eagle One, about their All Wheel
                      and Tire Wash.What he said was that some motorcycle wheels are not finished the
                      same as automotive wheels and this cleaner might damage the finish. He told me
                      specifically, that they tested a Harley Davidson spoked rim, and it turned all
                      the spokes almost black. (not going to make an anti harley remark here and start
                      a war). He also said that any damage to the finish of a wheel would be
                      noticeable pretty much instantly. I didn't have any trouble on the Sprint
                      wheels, apparantly they have a "normal" automotive clearcoat. He did offer one
                      caution though, he said when this stuff gets on a tire, it will leave a small
                      residue which would be slippery...this residue wears quickly, so just ease into
                      that first twisty with a bit of restraint.

                      I'm curious if this stuff would discolor the spoked wheel of a TBS. Black spokes
                      would look cool though, huh? So now we know...certain things can't be used on
                      motorcycles because of Harleys....

                      Like all of us (or most), I buy that motorcycle degreaser...S100, Motul

                      looking at their wheel and tire cleaners...there was one, A2Z All Wheel and Tire




                      Cleaner that said it was good for all wheels...Aluminum, mag, painted, anodized,




                      clear coated etc, for about 4 dollars...I smelled it in the store, and it



                      smelled just like S100...long story short, I bought a jug and the stuff is



                      amazing...maybe even a little better then the usual ones. It sprays on in a more




                      foamy way, so it doesn't run off like the others, and hoses away with ease.



                      There was no sign at all of any discoloration or etching of any parts I used it



                      on.

                            would look cool though, huh? So now we know...certain things can't be used on

                            motorcycles because of Harleys....

                            Like all of us (or most), I buy that motorcycle degreaser...S100, Motul



                            Bike



                            Wash etc for about ten or fifteen dollars a bottle...Today at walmart, I was



                            looking at their wheel and tire cleaners...there was one, A2Z All Wheel and Tire



                            Cleaner that said it was good for all wheels...Aluminum, mag, painted, anodized,



                            clear coated etc, for about 4 dollars...I smelled it in the store, and it



                            smelled just like S100...long story short, I bought a jug and the stuff is



                            amazing...maybe even a little better then the usual ones. It sprays on in a more



                            foamy way, so it doesn't run off like the others, and hoses away with ease.



                            There was no sign at all of any discoloration or etching of any parts I used it



                            on.
