In a general sense, two bikes off the assembly line one after another can do the same thing. There were no substantial differences between the engines, other than more refined emission management.
40K can contribute a little, depending how hard those miles were or if it suffered overheating or some mechanical problem which took a little umph out of it. If you're real curious, do a compression test on the two and see if there's a difference. Are both bikes current on service? Plugs, timing, etc?

About how many more miles would a satellite travel if it circled the equator2.5times tha if it circled around the poles 2.5 times?

How high above the surface is the satellite orbiting?
If it's circling one meter above the surface the difference would be about 2,130,000 kilometers. If it's circling 1000 kilometers above the surface the difference would be about 2,465,000 kilometers.

I have an 86 nissan pulsar that i bought for around 1500 and it has 133,000 miles. runs just fine.. what would it cost/ what do i need to add ac to it? thanks for the help.

It didn't come with a/c?If it didn't and you want a new a/c installed,it is probably &1500 & up.Call around for estimates.As far as doing it yourself and there isn't one already in it,I am not sure how you would work the compressor into the system.Good luck!

Maintenance costs for a Honda Silver Wing 8,000 mile service

Hi, Dnoss57 did you get ripped off morally yes legally no the guy in the first link paid $550 do yourself a favor and buy a few hand tools and do the work yourself if your drive belt looks in good shape run it. Drive belts are tough and can last way past 16000 miles with proper care, for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Honda, despair not, for a mere $25 you can download another one.

Engine miss at 45-55mph, no accleration with throttle response,

Anytime a bike sits for that long you stand a chance of fuel system problems. It sounds like you may need to "boil out" the carburetors and of course resynchronize them with vacuum gauges when you put it back together. You can also use a mercury manometer for synching the carbs. My guess is you have varnish still in the float bowls that is causing erratic running and perhaps the vacuum operated slides are not working correctly.

Screen is out of alignment

get a tri winged screwdriver from and take apart the bottom of your DS. You can take the whole screen apart and clean it. This should work. It's easier than it sounds. Hope this helps :-)
