Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

Tips for tackling an unfamiliar project.

When you are about to tackle a repair on a product you are unfamiliar with, FEAR NOT! These simple tips may help to make the repair go smoother.

Use a digital camera to take pictures of the disassembly. This will help later on when reassembling. Especially things like part positions, screw locations, wiring, etc.

Use a piece of foam to poke screws into while disassembling. This will not only keep them organized, but will keep them from getting lost.

Hope these tips help!!

Any of the Servisol products are suitable. They have lots of specialist products for tackling this kind of problem. You can get them from places such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). Also on-line at Amazon and E-Bay - just search for Servisol.

Any tips for shaving my bikini line? Should I use a special gel or shaving foam?

Actually, what you lather on to your skin before you use the razor will make a big difference. Don't use regular soap.

Using a proper shaving foam can help moisturize your skin, give a smoother shave and help to prevent ingrowing hairs. It's worth spending the money on a proper product.

fairing removal

Most if not all the connectors will have a Phillips head on them. Removal is not difficult but follow these tips and re-installation will go smoother. You do not have to remove the gauges or the ignition nor separate the windscreen from the fairing to remove the fairing. Get out you digital camera(any camera will do) and take frequent pictures as you remove fasteners. If you are unfamiliar with the correct re-installation location use a divided container and label the correct location. There is no trick to remove the fairing. If it won't move after removing the fasteners you most likely have missed some. Follow the pictures for re-installation.
