RB pointed out some risks by linking to a NGW post, which is actually at http://www.ngwclub.com/forum/viewtop...=16&t=8517
and zimco pointed out that this is not his first rodeo
Personally I think asking questions/defining risks is a good idea but if I were RB I would have put some more text arroundthe linkand possibly read the thread again as zimco strikes me as the type to measure ten times and cut once.
Having said all that, I think it's just a good idea to be aware of any risks when working on any bike. Ironically enough I am at the level where I will do grunt work like swapping an engine in 1975 by myself (with a cheap floor jack no less) but other stuff like timing belts, brakes, etc. scare me
I agree " zimco strikes me as the type to measure ten times and cut once."
RB may have been referring to this link, http://www.ngwclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=37811
OK i think I understand the point
However I check these links because there may be some info or ideas I can steal.
And I like looking at pictures more them words.
Like the fiber glass tail the guy made for is GL1100.
I don't have a GL1100, got a few ideas on maybe making another part in the future.
I was a mech. for over 35 years & never worked on my bike, let the dealer deal with it, I RIDE!
But because of this forum & a few links to others, I went & built 2 GL1500 Trike with molding a fiberglass body & all.
I Thank everyone on these forum giving the info & push to do it.
I would never go on a forum as I didn't understand them & can only type with 2 fingers & spelling sucks.
But thanks to the newer computers & spell checker I braved it.
At 61 I'm am a hobbyist & enjoy trying anything once & fix it twice, as you can see from posts.
3nd time I give up & start over.
Learn from my mistake hopefully.
