    These kids need to learn how to work with their hands. I see it all the time at the shop. Only a small percentage of the teenagers I try to hire even know what a wrench looks like. It's getting harder and harder to find a kid that's mechanically inclined.

    It's become a disposable world. Kids grow up with everything given to them, and when it breaks, they throw it away and mom buys them another new next best thing.

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    I watched a video, no pics on my screen.....

    My son knows how to do front disk brakes now....He was always interested in how things work though. He actually suggested he could probably do it after reading how on the internet (and probably watching how on youtube, lol). I instructed and provided the tools, but he got dirty and did the work.
