Eric's Motorcycling Do-It-Yourself Page

There are a number of motorcycle projects that anybody can do themselves with relative ease if they have access to the right information. Projects listed on this page are either the result of my being asked about how to accomplish a project or they are listed because I really couldn't find the information anywhere else on the web and wanted to save others some time and trouble.

About my technical expertise: When I younger, I spent six years in the Army where I worked as a general helicopter technician. After getting out of the Army, I attended a tech school and trained as an automotive technician. I worked for six years as a mechanic and was ASE certified. I got out of that feild only after I blew two disks in my lower back that where the result of the breaking of my back when I was in my early twenties. Needless to say, my formal training combined with my general interest in and aptitude with mechanical stuff means that I'm head and shoulders above most do-it-yourselfers. In other words: in many cases I know what I'm talking about.
