I tried searching the sites but couldn't find anything. The question:
has anyone had any positive experiences with Slime or a similar puncture sealing material in your tires??
Thanks.

Try;

http://www.silverwing600.com/t436-installing-ultraseal-tyre-gloop?highlight=slime+++puncturesafe+++ultraseal

PunctureSafe, UltraSeal, slime, All the same really.

All prevent punctures - they do not repair punctures though. By that I mean you cannot add the stuff after a puncture is identified. There is a limit to the size of hole it will repair too.

Read all literature with the stuff to see if it what you need.

Remember - Google is yer friend. Smile

I have not seen these warnings on other tire sealers ... from http://www.slime.com/faq.html#answer_121
I've heard that SLiME will ruin my rims?

Our SLiME Sealant for tubeless tires is formulated with rust and corrosion inhibitors as well as a pH buffer making the product more alkaline. All of these ingredients work to protect the integrity of your rim. It is important to note there are factors which can allow damage to occur in spite of this. If you want to err on the side of caution, you can use SLiME as a roadside repair. All you need is SLiME and an air compressor! SLiME can have an adverse affect on certain types of aluminum rims. Because alloys differ, it is difficult to predict how SLiME will react with your rims specifically. Over the years, though, we have found that older rims are more susceptible to damage from SLiME. Make sure that, if you have tubeless tires, you are using our tubeless formula. Our inner tube formula does not contain rust and corrosion inhibitors. Do not leave SLiME inside your tires for more than 2 years. After that time, we cannot guarantee the integrity of your rims. If pre-existing damage is present, we do not recommend using SLiME.

My comment regards 'all the same' was meant regards the puncture prevention not it's chemical constitution, so appologies if I was confusing.

I don't personally use Slime, PunctureSafe as it is now called is more readily available in the UK.

With a car and four tyres you are more stable in the event of a rapid tyre deflation. On two wheels a traumatic tyre deflation can be fatal.

I started using a tyre sealant after reading it was a pre requisite for the BTC, (British Touring Car racing,) I figured if it was good enough for racing it would suit my purpose.

I would most definitely recommend any puncture preventative in your tyres from day one.

I have tried to get some info on how to replace the left
turn signal bulb. I looked on the search box top left side-
typed in what I was trying to find & no results . I don't
have a service manual. Any post location would be greatly
appericated. I have attempted to locate answers without
causing problems or appearing to be a d...a...

Skip,

Is this what you are looking for?  It is for all bulbs in the rear.

http://www.silverwing600.com/t1605-all-rear-lamp-bulb-replacement-instructions?highlight=bulb

I hit the "search" button and then hit the "advanced search" button and typed in 'bulb'. It gave quite a few choices so if this isn't what you are needing than try the same thing. But using the 'advanced search" method usually gives the best results. Good luck and tell us if this worked.

Hopefully you are only in need of replacing a rear bulb. However if you do need to replace one of the front end turn signal bulbs then you'll need to remove the Front Cover (AKA front body, front fairing, etc) in which case you should watch these two videos:

Hope this helps

Cosmic_Jumper:
Thanks for the Links.
My goal was to get to the rear of the left storage box to install
a power outlet. I think with that much effort I'll go a different
route. I just hope a bulb doesn't fail.
Thanks again...

Oh, you want a power outlet?...I thought you were looking for front end turn signal bulb access.

Here is an excellent thread for installing a power oulet / cigarette lighter in the left pocket:

Thanks again. I'm an avid D I Y . The Masjesty 400 I had - I did all the service
and anything else to make me happy. I'll certainly check your suggestion. I put
two connections on the + post W/fuse holders 5" from the pos terminal. I'm an
ex marine serviceman so safety is foremost (no smoke). Any info I gather here
will be helpful down the road.
