    I looked on Amazon for new ground straps and couldnt find anything. I searched for "wheel ground strap", "tire ground strap", etc. I didnt find any info about them, but I did learn that corn starch works better than baby powder for fitting into a gimp suit.


    I rode the bike last night and almost dropped in front of my garage. The riding position takes a bit to get used to.

    Don't need a tune! These bikes come choked from the factory. Just open up the exhaust and intake to get MO POWAH!

    This sounds more like a sizing issue with your suit instead of an issue with the bike. Is the zipper in the front or rear?

    The best position for the zipper is in the rear, however it can be difficult to work without help. The front facing zipper is much more practical for daily use, but is a bit tacky and pretentious. Or so I have been told.

    Sounds like a Navy problem to me.
    If your ground straps arn't shorting out then maybe the oil isn't the right viscosity. Should flow like honey but smell like bbq sauce......then it won't lube up your rear rubber when it discharges from your breather mod. I hear LF Industrys do an exhaust that will burn the oil off and give you an extra 5 HP.

    St Louis or Kansas City BBQ sauce? Or some weird-o Kiwi-Wallaby flavor?
