comment How can I remove a seized brake disc?
Worth mentioning that if you use a lubricant on a stuck brake disc you want to make sure that if you are re-using it you clean it thoroughly before re-fitting it, and then clean it some more so you wont contaminate the braking surface of the disc or pads.

comment Gear ratio from speed and rpm
Are you targeting all cars? newer ones (certainly the last four years) all seem to have Gear Indication on them to aid economical driving, if you are just working with them you could interrogate that instead?

comment How to check spark plugs on a Yamaha R6
I would have kept the original images in as that shows what you were missing. Others may have the same confusion now and not know what they are doing is an incomplete step.

comment What are these two rubber-ended attachments used for in a compression tester kit?
+1 for HOLD against the plug hole rather than jam it in the hole.

comment Frequent spark plug change
Might be best to check the plug before the problems start, if the engine is running lean then the spark plug could wear and then be contaminated with fuel when it stops sparking completely so it looks like its running rich.

comment Afraid to crank engine - how can I tell if my cylinders are flooded with water?
The simplest way could be to simply remove the spark plugs and turn the engine over. There will be no compression and excess water should squirt safely out of the holes left by the spark plugs. Once you have removed the excess you should be able to put the plugs back in and turn it over to start. Having never done this though, I've not put it as an answer.

comment Motorcycle front brake's are weak
Might also be worth now checking the thickness and state of the brake disc and friction pads on the brake pads, running the brakes while they are poorly maintained may have affected their ability to stop the bike correctly when the air is bled out of the system.

@paulster yep, that seems right. All my front wheel drive cars have always had higher front pressures.
