    Rust Patch Repair

    just checked today and there are holes about every 10 inches are so from the factory with plugs in them. I'm thinking I could spray some sort of rust inhibitor through these holes to prevent more corrosion from occuring. Is there a good product for this? There are also holes on the top side...

    How many speeds are enough?

    you really only need one gear unless you care about efficiency. but really, 10 speeds should be more than enough for most riding.

    Clicking Noise while rolling straight

    as it turns out, my hubcap was not fully seated creating a clicking noise. this also somehow created a buzzing/gritty feeling in my clutch pedal. I reseated the hubcap and clicking is gone and the pedal is as smooth as before. glad it was an easy fix.

    Best Oil Filters for RACING

    any filter with a good bypass vavle. honestly, if your racing you don't really need an oil filter. You are probably changing the oil after each track day anyway. but, that's' probably not a great idea. I'd look for the highest flow filter you can find. I prefer wix but I hear k&n's...

    Clicking Noise while rolling straight

    i took another look at it this morning before reinstalling everything a taking it for a spin. It really seems like the brake rotor is not even all the way around. At one position (say 2-4 o'clock) it rubs a lot more than the rest of the rotor. We had to jack up the rotor on that side at one...
