More Flexible Cutting Board Uses



I have used this stuff to make rim protectors when changing tires


and to keep oil off the header when changing the oil and filter.



I changed my rear tire yesterday and thought of yet another use. When installing the wheel I put the pieces I had used as rim protectors between the axle spacers and the swingarm to keep the spacers from getting cockeyed or falling out and to keep the left spacer from hanging up on the axle adjuster clevis. I pulled them out one at a time as I ran the axle through. Works like a charm.

Great ideas Ken. I changed my front tire on Saturday. I used cut up yogurt containers, but these should be even better because they are thinner. Gonna try these when I change the rear tire.

Course it's dirty!

Ken goes to the corner store for milk in the evening, then figures, WTF, he'll press on and do 1,000 extra miles while everyone else is sleeping, just for the hell of it.

I use foil for the header but that looks to work better. How does the food taste when you use them for cutting up stuff?

Best tool I have found to protect the headers during an oil change. Tight spot funnel (few bucks in the auto section at Wally World). It's kind of rubbery and fits between the headers. Use it to fill new oil too.

They never have it in stock whenever I go. But of course you know I can't go to Wally world unless I'm wearing my "Tank, I need an exit!" t-shirt.

Yep. The IBA and Blackstone Labs say it's alright to change your oil every 10,000 miles if you do them all at once.

Haha , I see your point. Quick question. What seat or seat pad are you using to rack up all of those miles? That is my only complaint with long distances on the 9er. I have a Sargent seat which doesn't do much. If I ride for a couple hours I'm hurting pretty bad

I always used foil, but the funnel idea looks a lot better. Plus, I shouldn't run out of kitchen foil now. I was thinking about picking up one of the $70 bead breaker kits on Amazon too. Definitely going to pick up those cutting boards to protect the rims.

AirHawk baby! I wouldn't leave home without it. The only issue is the straps are designed to loop under the seat which means you have to pull the seat every time you put it on. The hooks are kinda cheesy so they have been known to fly off when an unsuspecting rider stands up on the pegs. I added straps with little tiny S-Biners to attachment points on the bottom of the air box and on my side case racks. Now it's totally secure and I can remove it easily if I'm going to be away from the bike a while.


I'm sure this will get me a big fat TWSS but my butt does not get sore.

So what oil drains the best when using these? Or what would be the best oil to use to get it to drain properly?

Just spray the plastic with this and the motor oil won't stick.

Why wouldn't you use wd40? Plus when done, just wipe it off with a rag and wipe the rag onto your chain.

2 birds 1 stone.
