    Yeah, it’s been a problem Kurt. It’s good for the Members to know
    I still like Apple, not sure I want to “infect” it.

    There is a lot of mechanical talent and experience here on the forum, I was wondering if we could have a thread that could feature those tricks. From rewiring an HES to custom blends of penetrating fluid to the best way(s) to get the proper amount of lube back into a final drive- let's hear about it
    It could be as simple as a post or a direction to a thread that saved the day for you.
    No sense all this great information fading away.
    Getting back the original question,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I say yes.

    The question is one of organization in and outside the already listed topics.

    The most important fact to remember. If there is a problem; and if any recent work has been done to the bike; then return to those last things done to look for the problem! You will find the problem maybe as much as 90% of the time!!
