how about adding a FAQ section

I've been thinking about this ever since you guys added the "Trip and Install" section. A FAQ section (see examples at the bottom of this post) would be a place where we could write-up and submit walkthroughs for common maintenance or performance upgrades. Things such as oil changes, fork seals, chain tightening/replacement, tire changes, valve adjustment, etc. I've seen some of these circulating throughout the forums, so there's a good foundation for this section that already exists within the site. Someone would just have to organize it and put it all in one place. If you do consider a section like this, I would me happy to write-up some processes as I encounter them where I work.
Let me know if you're interested,
Richard James

We have toyed with that idea, it is just a really hard thing to mantain, but don't be surpised if you see an extensive FAQ very soon.

The search feature can get you most of these answers, and probably just as fast as an additional forum. Once the forum has been around for awhile, say an FAQ forum, you would have to scroll through all the posts to find what you are looking for anyway.

I'm not sure how you did it before, but I think if we had to submit write-ups for approval before they're posted it might be easier to maintain truthful and important 'FAQ's

Just a thought

If you look around, you will see that new articles are pooping up, the internet is full of info and indexing it all, even in a segment like just sportbikes is a daunting task. FAQ's are never "complete" and like Kegger said, search is your friend. If you want to write an article about something, PM Tony or Vcook and they will let you know if the topic is needed... I am sure they will appreciate your effort.
