    Oh, on maintenance schedule. I change oil every winter and run what these guys recommend. Run seafoam in gas on occasion, change middle drive gear oil every 50,000 or so, change plugs every 50,000 or so, try not to overload the electrical system as my bike is a '99 and ride the devil out of it.

    Ha, true.

    The adjustable relay bones are generally made to lower the bike so you should call the supplier to see if they can also be adjusted to raise the bike. Probably shouldn't assume by just looking at the photo.

    Yes, longer lowers and shorter raises. I wonder if someone here has a pair to sell.

    Mike, another option would be to use shorter dog bones on your shock relay. You could either cut a piece out and reweld or install some of the adjustable dog bones to raise the rear.

    I do have a roadwing and run 38/40 psi two up. I did crack the frame but hammered it back and welded it. Hoping a taller rear tire might keep the back of the bike up a little bit. When I'm solo it o.k. but I don't ride that bike solo. I was thinking maybe weld the white bike before its broke and make it the two up bike and solo the green bike.

    Yes, I had that done at the shop thinking my valves were loud, It didn't change anything run wise or sound wise. Although I replaced plugs yesterday after 60000 miles, They looked fine but the new ones run much better.

    There is no Valve adjustments on our bike, it's a rocker arm adjustment to make sure the rocker fingers are pushing both valves at the same time. I beleave the book calls it valve adjustment.

    A 160/80 will work Mike. I ran that size of tire for about 5 years. It's taller and a little wider and will fit in the fender.

    Mike, do you have a Roadwing on that bike? What tire pressure do you run two up?

    Congratulations! That’s a milestone I really hope my bike will make. Any tips / advice regarding your maintenance schedule? You mentioned that you felt the valve adjustment wasn’t worth it?

    I did have the valves adjusted around 50000. Waste of money. At least it didnt screw anything up

    I’ll have to check on the 140. Don’t want skinner just taller. Maybe make up for the weight we put on it. Get back to just scraping floorboards and not frames

    The last time I saw Erbman (Neil) was just before he moved from Commerce, Ga. to Tampa, Fl. I believe that was in 2010.
    New tires & spark plugs,oil & filter change on his '01 R/S. His scooter had 126K miles on it & the rocker boxes (or any other covers) had never been off the motor.
