(Down joker! That's Q& A not T&A)
A lot of what I've read on bike forums sounds like it's been outsourced to India. Most dealer shops won't or can't give you a straight-up answer to shit.
I'm thinking about doing a bi-weekly or monthly post called: Ask The Doc, Ask The Dr., Ask Dr. Wrench or something like that. The idea is to take a half dozen or so technical / general bike related questions at each posting and try to actually resolve the issue, not make it worse. Hey, I'll be the first to admit that I don't know much. But what I do know makes no sense to me either. If you don't like this idea stop me now... Well, no one stopped me so I guess I'll ramble on.
Typical / sample questions may / may not be:
Hey Doc: My '07 Deluxe has an intermittent miss around 70-80 mph. The dearler's tech rode it for about 5 min. and said the injectors are leaking. Is he correct ?
Signed: "Missing in Mississippi"
Dear Dr. W: What's the difference between blue, red & green loctite, and where should each be used ?
Signed: "Loose Nuts in Nantucket"
Dr. Wrench: My '84 HLX needs a new headlight every 3-4 months, WTF ?
Signed: "The Dark One"
Typical / sample anwser you may / may not get:
Yo Doc Dude: My bike leaks half a quart of oil every time I park it. What can I do ?
Signed: "Puddles in Pittsburg"
Answer: Park it in your neighbor's driveway, or - BUY A GASKET SET YOU MORON !
Although this would be a "free" service provided by B S Preformance Systems, (a subsidiary of AZ Hole Performance), it will require an expenditure of time & effort on someones part. So if your problem is resolved, and you feel that you must pay someone, donations may be made to: '09 Street Glide Foundation c/o Road Grits Cafe.
