Talking A friggin paper plate!

I searched this forum, called friends and looked puzzled at my bike for a strange noise that I swore was my primary bearings gone bad. I finally had my wife come out and listen to the bike as I pushed it forward and backward to listen to the strange noise that was gonna have to be fixed. She listened to the terrible sound as I moved the bike, then she reached in and pulled out a friggin paper plate. A paper plate! A friggin paper plate was lodged up in the bike. So much for my mechanical skills, nobody ever ask me to help fix their stuff.

True...and don't forget that coming in contact with a paper plate would also void the warranty.

Sounds like an oil thread; Can you use paper plates in all three holes!

Glad you found the trouble, although if it was me I would hear that recounted a thousand time before I died

Standard paper plates may be OK for some people, but I use synthetic Chinet.

Better treat her to a nice dinner and hope she forgets that ever happened!!! Paper plates might take on a whole new meaning in your house....personally i dont think i will be able to look at one for a long time without cracking a smile!!! :-)
Thanks for the laugh!!! I needed that.................o~`o.....................

I would say treat your wife, after all she is the one that save you $. Stealership would have charged you for the diagnosis.

Thought my engine bearings were shot, until I found a bunch of coins mixed in with my vice grips at the bottom of the saddlebag just shakin away as I was going along.
