    The main concern is rubbing the brake shield & pushing it in to the rotor. I had a set of mis-made Heninger arms years ago that bolted up but ground into the shield once weight was back on the car.

    Some of your wandering may be due to cross caster, which seems to affect our cars. My own had at least a degree and I know another DIYer that had the same problem.

    It seems to be the static tire size standard. I did the math on wheel & tire size, and looked at published specs from around the internet. The 28" standard was the only consistent thing. Expressing...

    Did you track fuel heat against coolant temps? I would think that would be more indicative of source. I have a hard time believing all of that heat is from the return line when the tank is enclosed...

    Very cool! I did end up going down slightly different path. For my travel riding needs this Dahon fits the bill.

    Weird bump, but a chance to say that I have a set of Esprit arms on the workbench awaiting clean & repaint.
    Also a very expensive taper reamer that will be used twice.

    Not at all :D I know you can remove the old one, breaking clips in the process, and it will be bent out of shape. Getting the new one in place and in usable condition will be likely not possible.

    Clean the air/oil separator matrix in the oil fill cap too. It can get gelatinous in there and prevent the crankcase from breathing.

    You can use DOT 5.1 too. Emphasis on the "point one". I've had Motul in my brakes & clutch for years now and it's worked well.
    There is no need to try and track down obscure Castrol fluid.

    I rounded the edges and put on a small layer of foam tape so it wouldn't scuff the vinyl from vibration. Didn't leave any marks.

    On my car the temp gauge is very nonlinear after the first 1/4 mark when compared with the EFI temp sensor. This might be "solving the gauge" rather than "solving an overheat".

    Agreed - measuring either open (infinite) or short (0 ohm) would be a concern. 40 vs 20 is probably not worrisome unless the pressures are off. 20 ohms would heat up a bit faster. 40 ohms would be...

    On my Lseat covers this was caused by the pockets that hold the curved bars. They are too long, and as shipped you cannot get enough "pull" downwards to get the center panel flush with the foam. The...

    The whole crankcase ventilation system is kind of weak. I doubt it's solvable by changing out the separator matrix.

    Adding a catch can will help but you can't eliminate it entirely unless you...
