Clevelandmoto Podcast 105 - Removing Ethanol - Diabeetus - Military Bikes - Epoxy

Removing Ethanol from gasoline, the proper way to clean a carb, and prepping for winter.

Yep, Guzzi made Army Tractors. and they were 3 wheel drive too. 

Harley Davidson MT500 - that didn't become the official US military motorcycle

The Kawasaki KLX250 that DID become the Official US Military Motorcycle

Eventually they opted for the KLR650 designated as the M1030B1 - Gas powered (as god intended). 

Then in the interest of NOT having a bunch of bullet un-friendly gasoline on the battlefield, they decided to go Diesel. Despite every ass-hat on the planet thinking they want one (I'm sick of hearing it already) the project failed and they all essentially died a horrible death. So there...quit talking about it. It was such a disaster Hayes Diversified Technologies doesn't even exist anymore. Nuff said. If you want a diesel motorcycle, you're not fascinating or clever or the first person to think about it. Even these guys couldn't make it work. 

Diaphragm Carbs - 

Yep, you're boned. You can't fix it, you're gonna have to buy another one. 

You know who you are...I've been to your totally did this just to move that thing along on're the devil and you should be punished. 

Oh, then I found a website that claims to make rebuild kits for these things. 



De-Ethanol Your Gasoline!!!


Here's the whole article on how to make it happen:

ClevelandMoto Podcast 104 - Lithiums, Wheelies and Dustin coughs up a lung.

Lithium Batteries - can they really take the POWER that your bike is putting out?

Optimate makes an excellent device for checking your battery in both a running and cranking state, and it's not expensive. For $39 you can buy this guage and eliminate all doubt.

If you want a Charger you can use on just about any battery, I strongly recommend the Optimate 4 for Non-commercial use. This will resurrect a battery that is on the way out. 

Charging at over 14.4 Volts ? Even for a little while?

ClevelandMoto Podcast 103

We go around the room and each discuss a bike we love and a bike we hate and the reasons why for each.

What do you do when you see the word URGENT along with a Check engine or Warning light? 

Johnny Chrome What is your FAVORITE motorcycle? 
He's sticking to what he actually owns - Any shovelhead 4 speed with a swingarm. 

It's a pretty versatile could do what you see up there or down here....

What does Johnny Chrome Hate? 

Anything from China apparently: 

But he also doesn't care much for the Yamaha GTS1000 with the trick center hub steering...

Steve really, really loves the BMW R5 - Yep, we completely agree with you;

But, he also LOVES himself a PC800 (so do I) 

What does Steve hate....? This oughta be good.....

Honda CM400C - yep, for all the reasons listed...The CX650C is pretty awful too. 

Chris Smith cheated and brought a whole list Mrs. Smith grabbed off the internet...but what is worthy on the list is the Gilera Rondine Supercharged

What do you hate, Chris? The Suzuki / Wankel Rotary RE5 


The Honda GT650 Hawk

And he absolutely HATES the Misfit 250: 

With a runner up being ANY Sportster !?!? C'mon...even this one....

It's pretty cool - 

Phil's Favorite Motorcycle is: The KJ Henderson Art Deco from 1936

My Least favorite Motorcycle is the Yamaha Venture Royal Star - Ever wonder where the name Royal Star came from? Well, this is it. I HATE THIS MOTORCYCLE. 

Paul Smart Replica Ducatis are Lovely, but they hurt my body. 

I've learned that my practical favorite bike is the one already in my Garage....I love my GB500

Dustin and I are in agreement that a rational bike to lust after is the Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 in the Tenni Livery:

ClevelandMoto Podcast 102

Chatting about the Zainesville Guzzi Meet and tips on touring.


Is this a good deal or an albatross of parts?

How much rain can you handle? 

Is this what you need to keep dry? Or are you further off with something more reasonable like this? 

The Bates Clipper Fairing

The Vetter Liberator Fairing

Cops shouldn't be allowed to pull over scooters with a milk crate on the back!
