I have tried to figure out a way to clean up the Random tricks, share your best little tips & shortcuts thread because it's so hard to find something useful you might recall seeing there and also it's become cluttered with useless & semi useless stuff to wade thru.
I think I will try to quote the best of Random tricks, share your best little tips & shortcuts here, but in some kind of organized fashion. I can add say ten more posts to this thread, each one having a specific topic like 'Tires & suspension' and 'Fuel System'. I can then quote various scattered posts on that topic in one place and then edit that topic post later to add any new tips, which would still be posted in the old thread at the end as usual instead of here. Look there for fresh meat, look here to find something you need to fix a problem now.
Please avoid posting in this thread until after I get the 8 or 10 additional posts up with each one devoted to a different topic. I would appreciate any suggestions for the 8 or 10 topics which you can post in the old thread to keep this one clean for now. So far I'm thinking:
1. Engines, internal
2. Engines, external
3. Fuel system & carbs
5. Suspension, wheels, tires, brakes
6. Fork & headest, cable replacement
7. Frame, bodywork, paint
9. Seats, accessories, racks
What else? Go here, please: Random tricks, share your best little tips & shortcuts
