What is the process called to soften leather?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The best methord i have used is to use a mild oil to remove dirt and grease... and let the oil soak in... and then let it dry... once the oil on the outer surface is removed ... apply a clear coat of leather nourishing wax based polish (low viscous)... once dried... brush to shine... this is how you soften a leather watch band... note:- if the band is double layered leather... the oil might soften the glue that binds it together... before applying the wax based polish... use a mild coat of rubber based glue to adhere the surfaces...

How do you tell if a tire is tube or tubeless?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A tubular tire is a tire where the air bladder, the more durable outer rubber and the cloth layer(s) giving it all strength is assembled (and treated by the rider) as one unit. It needs a special rim where it's glued in place on to a shallow concave surface. To the extent they're still used they're almost exclusively used for road bikes, although TUFO have a MTB version as well. Tubeless today usually means the so called UST tires. They're used together with special valves, rim tapes and liquid sealants to get a wheel very similar to car wheels in construction. But don't forget the old,( a.k.a. clincher tire) that's used together with a separate inner tube. The tire cross section is like the letter U, and it's used together with a rim that's also like an U. Rim lips are pointing out and overlapping the tire lips that are pointing in.

What is the instrument of gear?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

"Gear" can mean two different things. In engineering /tech speak, a gear is a way of trading power for speed, or the other way around, as is done in the gear box/transmission of a car for instance.

But "gear" in everyday language can simply mean "stuff", "things" or "equipment". You can have swimming gear, safety gear, camping gear etc.

How do you install under armor visors on a helmet?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The wise rider typically purchases a helmet with the intent to attach it to his HEAD. Unfortunately, far too many brain injured riders had secured their helmets to some 'out of the way' point on their bike when they discovered that their skill alone was insufficient to protect their heads from impact. A helmet should be attached to the HEAD using the manufacturer's provided chin strap. Avoid aftermarket modifications as they have been shown to fail at the critical moment.

How do you install motorcycle saddlebags?

You "toss" them over the seat or rear fender.

This last guy is obviously not a biker or losing saddle bags at regular intervals. Toss overs still need to be secured.

Can you convert a manual motorbike into an automatic?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Anything is possible, but in cases like these it's usually more cost efficient to sell the vehicle you have and buy a vehicle with the features that you want instead. It's rarely as simple as merely replacing the tranny. Motor bikes with automatic trannys aren't that common, so you might have to search awhile.

How identify 2stroke or 4stroke?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

one huggge detail he left out is that 2 strokes have a huge belly on the header and 4 strokes do notAnswerIf the motor is running it's as easy as looking and listening. Looking for a little extra smoke (2 stroke) and listening deeper mellower sounding (4 strokes). The 2 stroke philosophy is kinda if it ain't smokin' it's broken.

Look for valve covers and external valve adjusting areas on a 4 stroke engine.Look for a separate injector-oil container (usually filled with a blueish /green oil) on the bike, or check the gas tank for evidence of pre-mix.(gas and oil mixed together) for a 2 stroke.The crankcases on a 2stroke shouldn't contain a separate oil filler either.

If I left out something I'm sure someone has more info.

What are the four main parts of a motorcycle?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

How in depth do you want to go? The basic components common to almost every bicycle are the frame (the 'body' of the bike), wheels, handlebars, pedals, brakes, and drivetrain, which consists of the chain, crank (the legs that the pedals are attached to), front and rear derailleurs which line the chain up with whatever gear you are in, and the rear gear cog.

If you want a detailed breakdown of a bicycle and all of its componentry, I would recommend buying the Haynes Bicycle Book. This is something of a staple for DIY bicycle mechanics, and covers nearly every system and style that's been tried on a bike in the last half century, with ample use of step-by-step photographs. Just as a precaution, the book is admittedly somewhat dense - if you're not too mechanically savvy, you might find yourself a bit in over your head at first.
