    No .... no - in the old days they left out the power juice & replaced it with the leak-from-every-joint and let-the-bits-fall-off juices.:D

    A friend of mine worked at AWR Establishment and used their very expensive gasket material to stop all the oil leaks on his Triumph, the engine cases started to corrode :cry:

    I ride a valkyrie, it's never let me down , it's a Honda built in the states , I like the rocket 3 it's got three cylinder all of them the same size as the dodge viper pistons, it is a straight line missile , does 0 to 60 in some ridiculously fast time , the only bike that's a match is a hyabusa
