comment Should I pull up the handbrake as high as it will go when parked?
I think in many cars, how high it will go depends on how strong you are.

comment 2001 Ford F150 Serious Fuel leak
Maybe not directly relevant, but I have the same truck (model, year, trim) and it had a problem where the rubber hose connecting the tank to the filler neck deteriorated and began to leak. The symptom was that fuel would drip on the ground while fueling (but generally not at other times). Your problem does sound more like a hole in the tank itself, but you may want to check the hoses as well.

comment water leak under the car
What makes you think it is coolant? Try catching some in a container - is it clear or green or orange?

comment Looking for a suitable lubricant
@Paulster: I assumed they were just general purpose grease products that happen to also be used for military airplanes. I haven't found any reference to Lucas making wiper motors for aircraft, only cars. Anyway I asked the OP to clarify.

comment Looking for a suitable lubricant
And do you insist on fluids that are certified to meet the military specifications you mention, or are you just looking for a recommendation for fluids that would be generally suitable for this kind of an application?

comment Looking for a suitable lubricant
To clear up some confusion: is this motor for a car or an airplane?

@Paulster: This is an aircraft part? How do you deduce that?

comment Should I worry about buying this bike?
Newer cars have a "maintenance minder" which illuminates a light when oil changes or other service is due. The mechanic is supposed to manually reset the light when the service is performed. In principle, the vehicle's computer could record the mileage at which this was done (or not), and the dealer could retrieve that data in case of a major warranty claim. No idea if this particular vehicle has anything of the sort, though.

If I'm correctly reading the chart in the owner's manual, it also says the oil should be changed for the first time at 600 miles. Since that did not happen, in principle that could already have voided the warranty, if Kawasaki wants to be strict about it

comment Preventing Car Theft by Removing Fuses
Won't this have the same problem as the fuse approach, that a would-be thief may drain the battery cranking the starter?
