I used POR15 to seal the rust on my R65 fuel tank but neglected to blow air through the petcock hole. Now the hole to the petcock is blocked. Any ideas to get the hole open?

Fairing removal
Hi, Can anyone point me in the right direction: I’m attempting to remove the ‘fairing’ from my 1984 r65ls. I have stopped at trouble with removing the turn signals.
Thanks in advance

Use of Bicycle Computers?
While a bicycle computer can be a PIA to set up correctly, I think it is a very viable alternative to the stock unit.  Not as much fun as a GPSr (IMHO), but a lot cheaper ($20), and you don't have ...
