    Went for a ride. The front brake sucks. Like it lost its bite. I was all over them trying to get a stoppie going but no matter how hard I squeeze, I couldn’t get it to lift. Lever isn’t coming to the bar or anything. Just no bite. Pads have plenty of meat left. Still feels like wood blocks. I believe these were either sbk or galfer pads I replaced with last time. Can’t remember but either way, quality sintered pads. I do think my left (rider side) fork may be leaking a little. Can fork fluid get on the pads and ruin friction? When I come to a stop, the last mph to zero, I have a strange noise. Sounds like the pads and disc slipping/rubbing. Never made this sounds before this year. Used to be able to do stoppies and endos easily. Did I just get too fat?

    I had the same ussue, when I had a little bit of oil or something simillar on brake disk.

    Take out caliper, pads, use some sand paper to get rid of some surface from pads. Use some detergent, to get rid of any dirt/oil from pads/rotor, install it again, and check

    I have the same symptoms with my Hyper since the right fork seal started leaking, so I'd say yes. I'll be replacing the pads once I fix the leak (homemade Seal Mate really helped, going to try a Seal Doctor next, and failing that new seals).

    I changed the oil today and then I think I fried my starter right after. Bike started fine and then I went to ride. Stalled out. Won’t start again. Just a clicking relay. Tried rocking it back and forth, nothing. It’s on the charger now. I think this bike is getting the for sale sign soon. I’m over it.

    I hear ya man. If the new starter works, this bike will have been gone through and should be in good working order.

    My fear is that the starter is a symptom of something else. I don't think I should ready for a rebuild yet. I need to see how many miles ago Noland built my motor. Time flies and maybe I forgot how much time I Have put on this build.

    Probably should, it gets used once a year if I'm lucky. PM me if you're interested.

    Putting the engine back in today.
    Can the hoses from the throttle body synchronize be capped of at the end or do they have to stay connected to each other?

    My bike is my gym, my wheelchair and my church all in one. I'd like to ride my bike all day long but I've got this thing called a job that keeps getting in the way.

    If you look in the top half of the airbox you should find two barbs that are available to land each line separately. I’m told that was what the barbs were for.
