Look out, I'm thinking here...this could get ugly.

I know a lot of you guys/gals have technical questions about stuff relating to your bikes/mechanics/etc. I wonder if we could get the powers that be here at Two Wheel Forum to hook up an "ask speedwerks" section. We've been building, tuning, and riding bikes for over 10 years, and we know what works and what doesn't. Heck, we've tried it all. Maybe I could set up an email address for you to send in your questions and we could answer about ten a month and put them up on the site. It's just a thought. It may prove helpful down the road for people searching for advice.

Any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Could it work? Not work?

I think it would be a good idea. But I think many owners who have a bike under warranty don't want to make any technical adjustments. And those with bikes out of warranty feel they are too inexperienced to do tech work.

I've done all kinds of work on my 1979 Suzuki because the shop manual is extremely detailed. There's hundreds of pictures and explicit instructions. Now my 1990 Honda on the other hand requires two shop manuals, a specific model and a common manual. They refer you back and forth between manuals and they use just a few line drawings. Plus they have the dreaded "install the part in the reverse order of removal". I just ordered a Haynes manual to see how it is. Expert guidance is always helpful in performing maintenance and hop-ups.

we used to have an "ask larryg" forum, but it didnt get too much attention for awhile, so we just combined it into the technical help n tuning forum, and now its starting to really take off.

but it might not be a bad idea to have a Speedwerks Forum, specifically designed for group buys, and questions about items in your catalog, or whatever else comes up.

I'll see what we can do. :)

My first question is why does God let it get cold out? Does he not like me? Does he not want me to ride all year around? Does he scoff at me and make me suffer for my sins of the Summer? Or is it due to my greatness along with me riding the best bike made - Yamaha - is that taking it too far and he has to bring me down a notch? Perhaps he just wants to give me more time to drink? That is probably it. Speaking of that where is my drink? What do I have to do to get a drink around here?
