Last updated on April 15th, 2019

I’m a stickler for motorcycle detailing, so I’ve spent a lot of time trying out different motorcycle cleaning products until I’ve found what I like best. Be it a bike wash shampoo or motorcycle wax, use them enough and you’ll develop a preference. While motorcycles don’t have all that much paintwork, they have more surface types and materials than many cars. Be it chrome, rubber, vinyl or plastic, you shouldn’t treat them all the same. That’s why here I’m going to go over how to clean a motorcycle for the best shine and longevity.

Keep reading to see how it matches your washing routine, or if you use the same motorcycle cleaning products.

Electrical Repair – To Crimp or Solder?

Last updated on December 10th, 2018

Most people wouldn’t believe how controversial this topic still is. Should I crimp or solder this connection? Ask this in any forum and you’ll find opponents willing to passionately debate the topic to death.

On one side you’ll find those who will quickly crimp a connection without giving it a second thought and go on with their day. On the other side you’ll find those more than happy to call the first group “hacks” or lazy. They will insist that a soldered connection is much more reliable and has better performance. But who is right? The truth of the matter isn’t that simple. This won’t settle the crimp or solder discussion, but it will provide valuable insight.

2017+ Kawasaki Ninja 650 Parts Compatibility List

2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Parts Compatibility List - Title Thumbnail

Last updated on April 17th, 2019

The following is a non-exhaustive, yet unfinished Kawasaki Ninja 650 parts compatibility list. That is, it is a list of models which share a degree of compatibility with the new 2017+ Kawasaki Ninja 650.

Though this model is new for 2017 – and a major redesign on the previous version of the infamous Ninja 650 – there are still many major and minor accessories that will directly bolt-on. At least from previous models from the Kawasaki family. I can’t make any guarantees about compatibility, but it is an excellent starting point when looking for more options when it comes to replacements and upgrades.

Also, if you want to check out what parts I decided to install on my 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650, check out my mods list. I’ve definitely put a not-insignificant amount of time and money into my bike, so I can absolutely make a few recommendations. Continue reading “2017+ Kawasaki Ninja 650 Parts Compatibility List”

Coban GPS Tracker Alarm Remote Replacement

If you have one of these alarms, you're definitely going to want a Coban GPS tracker remote replacement before you need it.

Last updated on December 10th, 2018

Have you installed a Coban GPS Tracker Alarm in your car or motorcycle? If that’s the case, you should get a Coban GPS tracker alarm remote replacement for it as soon as you get a chance. While they are excellent cheap alarms, there is virtually no way to replace the remote without the original one. Like car keys, it’s a lot cheaper to make a copy then to get a replacement. If you lose the original remote, you have to buy and reinstall a completely new GPS tracker. And that doesn’t sound fun at all. If you have a Coban (or rebranded) GPS tracker and you’re looking for a replacement remote, here I’m going to show you how to make your own copy with a generic universal cloning (learning) remote.

Note: This guide is a sidekick to my DIY “Motorcycle GPS Tracker Install With Remote Engine Disconnect“. You might wanna check it out if you’re installing a GPS tracker on your vehicle. Continue reading “Coban GPS Tracker Alarm Remote Replacement”
