Question about 1993 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Deluxe

1 Answer

Rear Brake recall

Hey all, I finally got my rims powder coated... semi gloss black. They look pretty sick. Nice to get it done given I have been daydreaming about making it happen for the past few months. However, now my rear brake does not work. The guys at the shop said that Harley issued a recall for the '06 883 rear brake. Any word on this? Is this accurate? I want to believe it is but given the brakes worked fine before I brought it to them I have a feeling they may be covering up their poor work. Rims look great... but ummm.. yeah. I'm surprised this happened given it was a custom bike shop. Hopefully they are correct about the recall and they found a real brake problem. Thanks in advance for any help.

Right front brake line needs to be replaced. I see there is a recall: Recall Number: 93V121000 Dates Manufactured: APR 1993 to APR 1993 Number of Vehicles Affected: 2848 Date Owners Notified On: JAN 0001...

go to the dealer and ask. they will be able to look up your vehicle by the vin to see if it is included in this recall and whether the work was done yet.

I need the paint codes for my 2006 V star 650 custom

go to and look up your exact motorcycle. Sounds like you have a midnight V star? The gloss black is called Raven and the matte finish i'm unsure of. i work for a Yamaha dealer and we always recommend Color Rite. Good luck.

Ink not dry when printing photographs

Download the proper drivers from - DON"T use standard Windows drivers.

When you have the proper drivers installed, you will find an "Advanced" tab in your "Printing Preferences" where you can set "Ink Volume" and "Dry Time".
Try using less ink and a longer dry time.

Also, make sure you're using photopaper that is designed for "INK JET PRINTERS".
(Laser Jet paper won't work).

Any photo that you print on glossy/semi-gloss paper will be wet as it emerges from the printer (especially ones requiring lots of ink).

You could manualy "catch" each one and set aside to dry, which should only take a minute or two.

Professional printers use a special drying powder and timed spray rig when printing on coated cover stock and glossy materials.

1995 nissan max. callibers problems HELP PLEASE

check your e-brake cables. make sure they are moving freely on bith sides. did you use a torque wrench to torque the wheels also?? unevenly torqued wheels can cause rotor warpage causing brake pulsation/shake. problems like this are hard to fix over the internet, without me actually looking at it my self. Rear brake setup on a maxima is pretty simple setup. I am just trying to think, what you could have done to cause this. Did the pads slipped nice and easy in to the slides??, when you were putting the pads in?? let me kno what you find and we will take it from here.

2004 Audi A4 1.8T, I have black dust on the rear wheels constantly.

hey XNC!

The black coating is definitely brake pad dust, and there are a number of commercially available wheel sealants / treatments that will help minimize the dust accumulation by coating/sealing the wheel surface, some with a Teflon-like additive. Check them out online or at your local auto supply

There are also physical shields, such as Kleen Wheels, that help control the problem: See: for more information on their product.

This usually becomes a problem when the original seal coating on the rim is scrubbed off or deteriorates, leaving the metal pores exposed to and coated with this accumulation, which sticks to raw metal much more tenaciously than it does to a sealed surface.

Hope this helps and good luck!
