Thanks.
I'm probably going to be slowing down here shortly.
I've got to run through the tuning sections and get on the road for a while.

I've added info to the fork oil page regarding shanneba's testing for Type E fork oil.
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/techtalk:ref:susp01

I also created a sub doc off the REF-Top End page for installing Hammer's billet pushrod tube base:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ref:engmech02f

This info is readily available from HammerPerf.
But the pics belong to us and the information is always readily available in the pedia.
Of course, I gave homage to HammerPerf's website as well as a link to their installation video in the article.
They seem to be pretty stout and they look nice.

I've rearranged and added quite a bit to the brake bleeding article.
Since it's such a common subject, I also brought it out on the main tech page in the REF section.

I added some information about EVO model Speedometer ratios:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...3#speedometers

All stock Sportster model speedometers (whether trans driven or wheel driven) are known as the 2:1 ratio speedometers - which means that the cable spins 2000RPMs at 60MPH...

I've added information on 'calculating pre-ream hole drill sizes' on the reamer page in the tool section.
It also includes a pre-hole size chart.

Ken, I just did a quick scan in Sportsterpedia and did not find the,earring shift shaft issue addressed. For some time now we have advocated adding an additional o-ring between the shift lever and quadring. Did I miss it and would it be a worthy addition?

I didn't see that discussion - Can you point me to a thread?

Sounds like something that would be worth adding - but we like to have a picture or, at minimum, a thread that we can point to for the discussion of the idea...

Thanks for mentioning it ...
