Correct, it does. I didn't mean to imply it was specific to tech. It's just the pretentious push from a segment of the tech crowd that everyone should code that seems somewhat unique. I don't see the autounions saying everyone should learn how to build a car, or the engineer's union saying we should all be building bridges.

Eh... within a generation or two, everyone should be taught the basics of coding in grade school... which would be great. Everyone should be taught how to code, to a compsci 101 level, from now on in K-12. But retraining older people is hopeless if they're not actively trying to do it themselves and only a small percentage have the ability to learn such things at an older age.

The alternative view is that software runs our world these days and they believe people should be literate in such a dominating discipline.

Yeah, it's unusual to see rust start like that.

Seems more common on older cars. Is that the result of a poor painting process, where moisture was on the surface of the metal when the car was painted?

My GPZ has air-and-spring suspension, and I've never checked the air pressure the whole time I've owned it. Finally checked it last night. There was basically no air in them. So I pumped it up, and it's like riding a whole different motorcycle. And no more wallows in the turns!

Lmao...

Trust me i know how finally doing something could make a huge difference. I never changed the plug in #4 on the ZX12 cause you have to drop the motor. The other 3 always came out clean so I wasnt worried.. then I had to do the timing chain, changed that plug and holy shit the bike felt new again.

you think the ride is better now you should look at the Ohlins kit for it...

The price for the Ohlins kit is probably more than the whole bike is worth. I've read replacing the rear shock can make a big difference, but the options seem limited. I've always assumed there are other models (e.g. ZX600 or GPZ1000) that might fit but I've never been able to find a list of cross-compatibility. The money and effort is probably better spent on a rebuild of the existing equipment, and some new bearings.
