    Suzuki Bandit Forks

    I bought what I was told were 99 Suzuki Bandit 600 forks. I am not 100% confident that the seller knew what they were so is there anyone here who knows this for sure? I intend to use these on a Virago Cafe Project, good choice?

    R1 front end on a Sportster

    I bumped into this You Tube Video and while I doubt many of us are using a Sportster, the basics should apply to any bike having a more modern front end installed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS6Ln9kGUPQ The information is good the video and sound quality not so much.

    Soda blasting soda?

    Is the Soda used in Soda blasting just the regular Arm & Hammer baking soda one sees at the store? I seem to recall seeing big (50lb?) bags of soda at the feed store, I believe it is used in cattle feed? What is the best source of soda?

    Seat height vs, clip on height??

    As the subject states how high is about right for the clip on height? I ride a bicycle and find the drops are uncomfortable, but the tops of the bars are OK. My bike is set up with the tops of the bars about 2" lower than the seat. Am I safe to assume that i will be reasonably comfortable...

    removing chrome and painting exhaust

    Looking through the site I can't find any information specifically on removing chrome and then re-doing the exhaust system with paint (flat black). I can only imagine that all the chrome must be removed to get a decent bond for the paint? What paint will stand up to the heat of the exhaust...
