    Just a thought.
    My thought ist: When will You need the remaining 2,5 liters mixed coolant ?
    In two years, in 10 years ....?

    For this:
    "Mix up around 2.5 liters(0.25 US Gal) 50/50 coolant with Distilled water(Rain Water/Melted Freezer ice)."
    It looks like that too much information in one single sentence

    Maybe better ist this:
    "Mix up around 1.25 liters(0.25 US Gal) 50/50 coolant with 1.25 liters Distilled water(Rain Water/Melted Freezer ice)."
    or
    "Mix up around 1.25 liters(0.25 US Gal) with 1.25 liters Distilled water(Rain Water/Melted Freezer ice).to have a 50/50 coolant"

    and NO I'm not nitpicking
    NO not at all

    as a suggestion to dealing with this and keeping my sanity in referring people to the quick reference section all the time

    we might consider splitting it and starting gl500/650 /ti ignition /mono shock reference

    that way the frames and forks ignition systems /wiring

    and everything that is different from the cxs will be in its own section allowing a simple

    differentiation between types

    with the only cross over being the 82 custom

    you might even start a customization quick reference to take the common to both type mods and put them there

    i think it would condense both so it would be easier for people to search

    and leave room to grow for all the sections

    and give us a chance to re organize as the way it is now has become helter skelter

    All of the math is messed up, the original, mine and yours guelli02. Mine should have read "2.5L is about a 2/3 US Gal (.66). I won't do the rest of the math and I'm likely still wrong and I guess I am picking the nits and I apologize for that.
    But I'm not splitting hairs.

    Eric,
    According to the Wiki site information, any user can edit, but urges creating a user name and password that will then be associated with your IP address. However, I'm not certain this is entirely accurate for how our Wiki is set up. I don't know for sure, but I think there are just some usernames (perhaps 4-6) who have the privilege of editing.

    JC would know for sure how our Wiki is set up.
    Gloria's Story including PartII> I miss her dearly, but she is in good hands. Part III included at the end of the link.

    Forum Settings that everyone should make

    Photo and Video posting Tips

    The WIKI link for all the good tech stuff. including free FSM's
    with addendums

    Larry's most excellent CX/GL Carb book link


    Please go to that App's settings, and disable the "auto signature" feature. Thanks.

    Account approval is in the hands of the Admins (Verticalscope) rather than the mods and under Forum Foundry they were interested in keeping that number as small as possible to reduce the security risk to the server. I presume Verticalscope will feel the same way, though if there is interest in making the Wiki more widely editable and opening up the accounts to more forum members we could always put that to the Wiki team and see whether we want to ask Verticalscope about that.

    why dont we move the wiki away from vertiscope control and find a permanent service to cover

    it

    the wiki is the property of the community and we should be able to maintain and grow it as we need

    i for one would do a annual contribution to host it

    maybe some one could (jc?) help us find a stable home for it

    this has already happened once and cause it to be moved

    i would like it in its own place and in fact i would like to be able to buy annual dvd (encyclopidia cx)

    that i could jut load on my laptop for real quick reference and print out or pdf forwarding to help people

    there that my dream

    Like the site? Found an article helpful? Help me maintain it and write more articles! We serve millions of how-to pictures annually and it's not cheap! The advertising does help but it falls well short. We're not a charity or not for profit, so this isn't tax deductible and you won't receive anything physical for hitting "buy it now" - only gratitude!

    The online tools (the CX500 stator test etc.) take well over a hundred hours of coding to complete - with some more support I can fund further tools whose coding requirements are beyond my abilities.

    i agree jc has been very helpful he has taken the time to make tools i have dreamed of for years

    like the stator test and diagnose tool he and his wife (also a programmer) worked on that for weeks

    then the ordering tool for group buys they did for cobram to help hm manage group orders

    and all the articles that jc does and writes

    he is always working on something

    so any of you out there that use his motofaction site for reference

    toss a donation that way once a year or as you see fit
