...I need maintenance help!! The bike is ready for its 300 mile service. I have the following questions for ya'll:What weight of transmission oil should I use?The engine oil is the transmission oil. It is also the primary drive chain/starter clutch/wet plate drive clutch oil.Use a good motorcycle oil, either 15w-50 or 20w-50 weight that meets one of the JASO specifications.I use Mobil-1 V-Twin oil and its worked fine for over 17,000 miles. What tire pressures should I be using for each of the tires?I'm not real knowledgable about sidecar tire pressures but I think I would try about 22 psi front, 28 psi rear, 28-32 sidecar.What are the chain tension specifications?With the motorcycle on the center stand the rear chain should have about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of up/down movement half way between the engine and the rear sprocket.How exactly should I be driving this bike for the break-in period?Follow the break in suggested by the owners manual.About 40 mph max for the first 300 miles. No more than 1/2 throttle for acceleration. 50 mph max from 300 to 600 miles. No more than 3/4 throttle for acceleration.No limit after 600 miles. Where can I purchase/download a good maintenance manual?See UCE Factory Service Manual at bottom of page in this linkhttp://www.nfieldgear.com/digital-download/ Should I perform any maintenance tasks that aren't specified in the 300 mile maintenance outline?Check all nuts/bolts for tightness. Lube speedometer cable, You MUST replace the engine oil and oil filter. The filter is a bastard available only from dealer or NFG 1-800-358-0938 (or Hitchcocks if your in the UK). Get the 5 pack kit. It's worth the money.I have a custom-built, super-stout rear wheel for my '01 Bullet that I had fabricated for flying my sidecar- can I use my personal sidecar wheel, flip it around, and use it on the Hendrick's UCE rig?I don't know. It might work if the width and the Cush Drive rubbers are the same.What do ya'll think about removing the vibration-dampeners on the head? It looks to me like they harsh airflow and I think they're kind of ugly.Take them off. IMO, they serve no useful purpose. They are there to dampen high pitched sounds that no one can hear after removing them. They also cover valuable fin area that should be cooling the engine.Any help that you guys can give me would be much appreciated.PS As a special treat, can anybody link me to any posts about the Amal UCE carb conversion on these new model bikes? I am weirded out by EFI systems...Not me. You can check out the fuel injection to carb conversion topic I posted but that one doesn't use an Amal carb.Have a good one!
