HJC CL-17 Motorcycle Helmet Review

Here's a little review of HJC's CL-17 motorcycle helmet.  I picked this up from Royal Distributing early this riding season (also check out Canada's Motorcycle in Canada or Revzilla in the USA) and have been using it for 1-2 months.

The helmet review is mostly positive with really only a couple shortfalls.  Here's a link to the manufacturer page as well.

How to Change Motorcycle Engine Oil & Filter: Honda CBR 125

This is the 3rd of 3 videos showcasing some maintenance I'm performing on a 2008 Honda CBR 125 motorcycle for my wife.  The factory service manual recommends cleaning the oil filter (strainer) every 12,000 kms and this bike already has 16,000 kms... I can't confirm that it's every been done so why not do it yourself and provide some peace of mind!

How to Adjust Motorcycle Valve Clearances: 2008 Honda CBR 125

This is the 2nd of 3 videos showing some maintenance on a 2008 Honda CBR 125 motorcycle I picked up for my wife.  In this video, I'm going through how to check & adjust valve clearances (valve lash).  It's pretty easy to do and really the only hardship is the small working space.

How to Fix Motorcycle Temperature Gauge: 2008 Honda CBR 125

This is the 1st video of 3 showing some maintenance on a used 2008 Honda CBR 125 I picked up for my wife.  I bought the bike used, private sale with about 16,000 kms on the odometer.  The first thing I noticed was that the temp gauge wasn't moving at all (i.e. showing no temperature).  The previous owner wasn't helping out with any info so I decided to pull a few things apart and check things out for myself.

How to Change Car Engine Oil: 2003 Mazda Protege

Here's a quick video showing how to change the oil in your car.  This is for a 2003 Mazda Protege LX 2.0L... but the technique remains largely the same with most modern vehicles.

For this specific vehicle, I'm using:

  • Fram 6607 oil filter
  • 3.5 L of engine oil (this is the required amount with a filter change)
  • 5w-30 for -30C to +40C (or 10w-30 for -20C to +40C)

Thanks for watching and feel free to post any question or comments to the youtube video feed.
