|Help Me Fix It A great place to post any problems you may be having while working on your motorcycle. Most of us are do-it-yourselfers so this is a great way to share any information pertaining to fixing something or adding something on.|

What I want all of you to know is that Im not here to be a NAZI or generally get into debates with you on subjects.
Im more than qualified to be here especially seeing as Ive been turning wrenches on motorcycles for 15 years now. Working with factory teams in both road racing and drag racing as well as owning my own shop.
Some of you know me from my years here and some of you will come to know me from my involvment with your questions and answers here.
Yes, I can be an asshole..............Ill try not to make most of you cry.
Things I will not tolerate here:
1) Blatant misinformation. I cannot stand it. More stupidity gets passed around the internet than I can bear. I will not have it. IF YOU DONT KNOW THE CORRECT ANSWER, dont say anything.
Yes I know that alot of the time you cant have the "correct" answer for all the problems as its much like somone holding their computer up to the bike so you can talk to it..............its not realistic.
However, I do know some of you know the basics or you really know your shit. I generally dont like to pipe in unless the answers are wrong or not answered at all. So those of you that are assets, please by all means keep it up.
2) This one is a no brainer.........NO FLAMING..........THATS MY JOB (kidding) seriously though, lets not berate people for asking what may be percieved as a dumb question. Not everyone here is a mechanic and if they were, people like me and some of you wouldnt be valuable.
I will be trying to poke my head into the performance and custom section (my personal favorite subject no less) and helping there more. Im tired of seeing people not get good answers in both these subforums and getting picked on for stupid stuff like extended swingarms or chroming.
The more we help one another out, the better off we as a community in whole will be.
If any of you have questions for me, just ask. Ill do my best to do my new job as well and efficiently as possible.
