    Spin on oil filter number?

    I bought truflo from Raddkin when I purchased the spin on adapter, great filters at a low price. I also watched a few videos on this brand of filter and I must say I was hooked

    Bear’s Cycle & Restoration

    Even what I've considered the best in the business makes mistakes. Pistol Pete for instance, I bought a set of 78 gl1000 carbs that he rebuilt a few years back. After installing the set they ran perfect, flawless, however after playing with the set and fine tuning the engine I noticed that #1...

    Any body running L.E. lubricants

    I have a few people I know running their products in old and newer Gold Wings, using the 8800 L.E. motor oil and claim to have a huge noticeable difference, cooler running engines, quieter and smoother shifts. I do know for a fact that a large diesel powered generator that had been and still...

    Oil leaking from water pump weep hole

    Today while on the lift I noticed some oil on my lift table, after a closer look I believe its coming from the little weep hole just below the water pump. What can a do to stop this leak? It isn't leaking bad but I would like to stop it completely.

    Where all are the grounds located

    Ok, I cleaned the rectifier plug, it was a little dirty and after using cleaner and a wire brush it shines like new. However this didnt change anything. I checked the volts before starting the motor, 12v after starting it stayed at 12v for a little bit then as normal started climbing. At around...

    Where all are the grounds located

    On a 78 gl1000 where all are the grounds located, besides the battery ground cable on the engine block? Regardless if I have the stock rectifier and regulator or the new rectifier and regulator built together I'm still over charging. From above idle to 3k rpm I'm from 16v to 17v without anything...

    You need to do more research as Rotella t6 is also designed for gasoline engines as well.
