    many thanks to "the usual suspects"! threads on mushy front brake let me zero right in on the problem and fix it. the issue was too much handbrake travel. i wasn't sure if the problem was master cylinder or calipers. i had bled the brakes and didnt fix the problem. after doin a caliper rebuild (clean and new seals and wiper), i'm back to normal brake function. your comments in the threads were exactly right, as usual. thanks to all u guys.

    I think we all like to help other riders through any problems they come across

    yes fin, your thread was one of the ones that was really helpful. the rest of the guys know who they are, and thanks to them all. day in and day out they scan new threads and give such great advice, can't thank you all enuff. if u ever swing thru central virginia and need a hand or want to tip a few, let me know.

    my next service project this winter is to check the swingarm bearings.

    You can give people Reputation points ....next to the icon that shows if you are logged on. I think it is a swell way to give a shout out to these guys.
