Re: In praise of vinegar

well white cooking vinegar is only about 1%

ACV is probably stronger

a good trick is dilute vinegar on pot metal carbs with tooth brush, gotta be careful cos too strong will dissolve the zinc and pit the carbs

I usually find wiesers stuff is much worse quality than RBO, but even some of RBO's stuff is questionable.

Re: And another thing...

Re: Engine oil

if your clutch plates are stuck

usually you can just chock it up so rear wheel is off and rev it up engaging and disengaging the clutch, this tends to free them up.

or just physically separate them and put in a JASO MA spec (wet clutch) oil of any viscosity.
