New Technical Forum

#2
Agreed. A general technical/mechanical discussion forum would be good. I was a car-stereo installer back in the 8-track days, and have installed several remote-start units as well as other stuff, so I can contribute plenty on wiring.

Larry are you referring to the same Forum as Michael?

I don't think so. A place to discuss electrical and mechanical topics, different from a Marketplace forum.

Now, installations of such products, as well as modifications and such, would certainly fit in with the idea.

It's not vetter related. More for upgrading or fixing older bikes. Tech section would be fine. I also though we could point out venders who specialize at one thing. (vendors = market place)

I have been thinking about this and the way I look at a web site is if there are too many forums I just end up staying with a few.Where I moderate we have too many and I mentioned this to the owner and cut it back some but I would still like to see it smaller for ease of people who aren't going to spend much time on a site and goes after what they wanna look for.
Just my thought and 10 cents.

Like I said earlier most of our bikes are old metric bikes. And i'm sure some of them need some work. I thought marketplace because these are products and services offered by vendors. Besides it was only a suggestion.

I like the idea Michael.

I also agree with Steppen, that we wont want a ton of forums with 2 posts each in them. Does anybody see any forums on our setup that can be eliminated or combined?

I think we should have some kinda old metric forum since most fairings went to the older Jap bikes.
BMW here and there and only one Harley I have seen.

AV,it just seems that if you get a newer bike you would not want to put old styling on it.If I were to get a new bike I would just get one already set up for the road.Part of that is I don't like working on bikes like I did when I was younger.
You can get all kind of fairings thru JC Whitney.
Younger riders in their 20's and 30's want looks on their sport bikes not good ol function.
How many new bikes do you see with vetters on them? I don't.Brackets is one problem plus they aren't made any more.Just a thought or two:)

By that Larry,that '96 is and old bike.I met an '05 on up which would be the last ten years.Give some on the years they all look alike.The '90s I think would work fine but after that getting a welder etc...just my thoughts.
