Be Prepared to Handle a Flat Tire

tire repair kit TR-150205   If you’ve ever had a flat tire while you are out on your bike, you know it just plain stinks! This is especially true if you are in the middle of a great ride. My first flat came a little over a year and a half ago. I was on one of those “Screw Work Let’s Ride” trips. The weather couldn’t have been better, clear sunny skies, mid 80’s, and we were headed to a great spot for lunch. Well after indulging in a gut busting meal, it was time to saddle up and head for the barn. The only problem was, after performing a pre-ride walk around (TCLOCS inspired) I noticed my rear tire was flat. Just my luck! As the whole group gathered to assess my situation, it was quickly learned one crusty rusty old biker had a tire repair kit like those available from K and G Cycles, and another had a small compressor. My luck was about to change. In no time flat, we had the tire repaired and were on our way.  This is one of the advantages of riding with seasoned pros. Not being one to push my luck too hard, at a fuel stop along the way, I made a call to my local shop to schedule the new tire install. Turns out hey did have the tire in stock, were able to get me in, and had me ready the next day.

   This tire plugger kit TR-150215experience has taught me that if you pay attention in life and take a little direction from the ones that have “been there and done that” you can learn a lot. Had it not been for the “higher mileage” guys with us that day and their wisdom, I never would have discovered the priceless tools of the road. A portable tire repair kit is small enough to pack on almost any bike, is affordable enough that all of us should have one, and as long as you have a tubeless tire will get you back on the road to safety. I know we never hope to need the tools we pack for ourselves, but you never know when a friend may need some assistance. In addition to a small tool wrap, I also carry a tire repair kit (like Part# TR-150215 seen here) on my bike because you never know what lies ahead in the road. Why not head over to K and G Cycles and take a look at the selection of tire repair kits available and pick one up before the new season begins.

Redistribution of Power – Load Equalizers

You just finished installing your new L.E.D. turn signals and you can’t figure out why they are flashing fast. After going online, you figure it out and realize you need a Load Equalizer. We’ve all heard the phrase a hundred times, but what is a Load Equalizer, what does it do, and why do I need one? Well, my objective today is to educate you on the needs, necessity, and function of a load equalizer. At K and G Cycles we carry a large selection of Load Equalizers to handle almost any electrical need.

   To help us u4 lt eqnderstand the need for a load equalizer, we need to understand what happens when we install L.E.D. lighting on our motorcycle. On a motorcycle, the stock turn signal flasher is designed to flash twice as fast when one of the incandescent bulbs is burnt out. This happens when you switch to L.E.D. bulbs because they consume so little power. When the flasher sees a drop in the power being used, it believes a bulb is burnt out and goes into warning mode. Even though it is a brand new bulb, it will make the L.E.D. flash too fast or possibly not at all. This is where a load equalizer needs to be installed to adjust the electrical load, or equalize it so the system doesn’t see a phantom loss and the function returns to normal. Depending on your systems requirements there are different equalizers available with a range of amperage and resistance ratings. Due to electrical signal manipulation, some load equalizers can generate a considerable amount of heat and it is suggested not to use 4-way hazard lights. Since each application is different it is a good idea to check with the manufacturer of the equalizer or your local service center. Most load equalizers are straight forward units that are often plug and play, or simple cut and splice set ups reducing installation headaches.

   So you see, without a doubt using L.E.D. lighting will most assuredly require the use of a load equalizer. Depending on how many positions you have installed them in and the location itself will dictate the style and rating of the equalizer. Because of this, K and G Cycles has a larger selection sure to fit your needs. I hope you have a better understanding of L.E.D. lighting and load equalizers now. Contact us today and install that L.E.D. lighting right the first time.
