So many questions answered in a single thread! I was wondering about those, and as far as the stickers, I know at least 5 civic drivers that tell me each one adds like 15 horsepower. Depends though...if it's a big enough sticker it can ad 50 hp's no problem. and if it's a replica from Rossi's bike it makes you the best rider evar!

For that matter why not just put a full size sticker on you car of a faster car?
Same goes for a bike. If you have an older Gixer, put a sticker of a Honda CBR 1000 or whatever?

Keeps the fluid from cooking in the sun and turning dark quicker from sunlight exposure. Also helps if you boil over or have a leak. If you change it like you're supposed to, really does nothing.

Braided handle bars it goes back to the days of schwinns and those plastic tassles on the bar ends. They just never grew up except for having loud pipes on the bike which facilitates removing the baseball cards from their spokes. When they get older they recert even farther back by trikes as it reminds them of their big wheels.

I was told it was to keep sunlight from degrading the brake fluid, but i have no idea if there's any actual science behind it. I got a pretty cool one a few years ago as a gift from a buddy, and it got stolen a few days later. Never replaced it, and I've never had a problem with my fluid.
