I had a similar issue with my VN750. Kawasaki dealership told PO it needed to be sealed and used what I assumed was Kreem. It rusted underneath the coating, causing it to fail. I used several...

The last time another guy and I rode The Triple Nickel, we almost lost it in a curve. Car tires had thrown gravel all over the road when cutting the inside edge. Great road, but don't think I'll...
