    Ads are busted

    None of the ads on the site seem to be loading in for me? While I don't personally have a great thirst for advertising, they presumably help keep the site up and I am behind that. I do *not* have an ad-blocker, of course

    Who can competently test moto batteries?

    I am developing a distrust of the battery in my bike, but I'd rather be sure before dropping $200 on a new one. Is there a shop or retail store that can effectively test small batteries? Against my better judgement, I tried CT after they assured me they could do it but it turns out that they...

    Swear filter off?

    I accidentally was able to just drop a vulgarity in a non-trash talk thread. I deleted it before my mom saw, but is the swear filter busted? Or do we not worry about that anymore

    First track day experience

    I finally lined everything up and attended my first real track day on July 6th! (Not counting FAST... that I did 12(!!) years ago) Group: KSR I signed up with KSR not really knowing much about them, though I got a good vibe from them from here and their website. It is run by a small number of...

    New dumb question - passing tech for no coolant

    I was merrily flushing the cooling system on my CB919 (coolant removal or not, it was due either way), thinking about how it was a bit annoying since the rad cap is tucked under the fuel tank... ...then I got to wondering - how will the tech inspector actually verify that there is no coolant in...

    Power outages?

    Two different people in my social circle at opposite ends of the city had blackouts today, wondering if anybody else is/was having power trouble

    Probably a stupid question about side stands

    Hoping to finally get my feet wet with track days this year. Doing my best to be somewhat prepared, but... Having to tie-up or remove the sidestand is causing me emotional difficulties. Does literally everyone bring a rear stand? I guess I could get my hands on one, but even then, to put a bike...

    Formula 3 crash at Macau GP

    These sorts of racing accidents are becoming rare, which is of course a good thing. And rest assured that nobody died in the following clip, though the driver suffered a spinal fracture and three people off the track were hospitalized. From...

    Vimeo embed behaviour

    This isn't a super big deal, obviously it doesn't come up very often... Embedding Vimeo videos with the video tag does not work, trying to do that will result in that part of the post just being blank. However, if you just post the url to the video and nothing else (no url tags, nothing) around...

    Random roadside alcohol tests?

    Has this discussion already happened on the board somewhere? I'm surprised to not find anything on it. Bill C-46 will allow police to conduct random roadside alcohol tests, and they are not refusable...

    Good prices on engine oil?

    Last bike I had I was content with using Rotella T (even though it made shifting a bit worse), but now I would prefer to use a 10w40. In the intervening years, it looks like the Tire Hole has stopped carrying Mobil 1 MX4T, and so far every shop I've walked into has had eye-wateringly expensive...

    Fiat 500 poor resale?

    I'm not buying one, was just idly looking at classifieds, when I saw a 2012 Fiat 500 for $4.5K. I thought maybe it was a typo but no, that's about what they go for. So why does the resale on these fall off a cliff?

    Need help - sag, master cylinder, header leak

    Trying to combine this all into one topic is probably a fool's errand but if I make three posts two of them will get ignored, plus I kinda don't want to spam the forum. Long story short, I finally have some time for the project in the garage, and I want to pick GTAM's brain(s) so I don't have to...

    How did the Ducati 900SS age?

    There's a 900SS on Kijiji for $3000 right now. Is it a good idea or bad idea? It is supposedly turnkey, does that seem likely? How much wrench time will it need compared to a Japanese bike?
