It won't dive very much at all with only the rear brake pedal pressed.


grab a hand full of front brake along with the rear brake and it will dive if it can.

I was in Washington State in my trucking days but not in that area.
Wow... who did you drive for? I drove for Schneider for a short period of time and then for a local trucking company here in Woodland, 5 days a week no week ends home almost every night except on special jobs pay by the hr. I stayed there 11 years. Seems we have some things in common.

I never made it to the garage. Nice day here, sunny and 80 degrees today, went for a ride. Supposed to be rain tomorrow. I'll go stare at fork parts tomorrow. hehehe

I drove for Allied moving for a while and then long haul for an independent. I got home about once a month if that. Ended up homeless in Portland Or. when the jobs all fell flat and the owner took over the driving and left me out in the cold. Everything I owned was in NJ and I was a typical 25 year old guy who spent each paycheck before I got it. The good thing was that I did not drink so I was in much better shape than most of the others on the street and therefore was in a better position to get small jobs and better places to stay. Finally got a codriver job and made my way back east.

That sir sounds like farm tractor brakes where you can steer with just the brakes.

Hahaha, that's funny. My rig was set up by CSC in 2007 with a new friendship 3 car. It stops straight as an arrow if I only use the front brake lever or both the front and back. If I just use the brake pedal there is a very slight pull to the left. And I mean slight ! because the pedal activates the motorcycle brakes and not the car so you have a bunch of dead weight trying to push the bike to the left. Sometimes I don't even notice it if the crown of the road is enough .

Forums are NOT stable enough to keep your connection active for longer than about 2 minutes..... this is because you are not sending requests to the server, and then the server TIMES OUT.

This is completely normal, and it is designed into the server to keep it running smoothly and not hanging up because someone ran off and left their computer alone for 30 days at a time.

Copy your text, then paste it into the forum's editor and hit SUBMIT.

you can insert the pictures into your plain text by referring to their URL and they will show up exactly where you want them.

it will work.
i need an editor.

life is good.

when yu have shallow rake, mushy suspension that dives under braking, you get headshake like a dog chittin peach seeds. shorten the tubes and tire gets closer to chassis , harsher headshake. tankslappers suck.


could honda fix it? yep, but that would require stiffer damping , or anti dive.................magazines dont give good reviews for things that work.



personally, i will do as you did oneseowner and actually tune the suspension.



thanks for your work. i will also correct that unified braking thingy!
