    my bike takes DOT 5.1 for the front brake dot 4 in the rear and mineral oil for clutch fluid...so suck it. i just changed both so i should be good but with the 5.1 and mineral oil difficult to find, id like to have it.

    AKA, brake fluid.

    Unless of course some bikes require a different fluid from clutch to brake, which IMO, would be pretty stupid.

    Two of my 4 street bikes have a hydraulic clutch.....

    Re: Deal's Gap 2012

    Rear brake is now 100% repaired and in perfect working order. Directionals are all running, headlights check. Horn- check.
    Only thing I can not get to work is the magnet/transmitter for the speedo, may have to order a new wire.

    Overall beside being an ugly street fighter for now the SV is in good shape, runs/rides sweet! Only thing left to do is fab the Licence Plate bracket at work tomorrow, get to registry and then Insp. So it will be ready for the Gap!

    OK...(close enough) to a local...
    Where are you guys staying? The store? Fontana, Kickstand, Iron Horse?
    Ok...take 28 south to the highlands....Ride to Bridal Veil Falls....the part of 28 once you get thru Franklin etc is fun...do it EARLY though before the tourist get out.
    Also, devils triangle, try and make it down to blood mountain and richard russel pkwy in N GA mountains...

    What do you mean by room for 1 more? Work is slow, and I haven't been to Deals Gap since June.

    All I have to do is load up the BMW with clothes and ride down. At least from MD it will be a nice easy ride. Im thinking of taking the scenic route through the mountains.

    you dont need a speedo to pass inspection. whos gonna check to be sure it even works?
    and with that said, no one down at the gap is gonna know you need an inspection sticker. just register it so you can ride it down there and deal with the speedo later

    - - - Updated - - -

    anyone know approx what time we will back 9/9? i might have to work on that day in order to make this trip

    Re: Deal's Gap 2012

    Yeah I'm not too worried about the inspection sticker or speedo.


    If you have to be back to work sunday you can leave friday & ride home!

    We'll figure it out. What time would you have to work? The day? We would have to leave either friday night or early saturday. Pretty sure we need to be out of the house by 10 or 11 saturday anyways. Then figure approx 15 + hrs drive home
