Ah. I can weight in. If you decide to disassemble the starter... Be sure to select the most lethally sharp object in your shop with which to pry off the lock ring holding the pinion onto the starter shaft. This will ensure that plenty of blood will be on hand to lubricate variou...

Roger, I wonder if the 10% ethanol might actually leave over a 6-month hot weather period and with it it's water-suspending capacity. I think the Techron (even the ultra concentrated) is mostly methanol which would help it burn water, in addition to the scrubbing of the detergent...

Has anyone tried the Haynes on line manuals? You can buy the print version for $49 or the on line 1 yr subscription for $29. I can't find any information on how the subscription works. I can only assume that after 1 yr you would lose access to the manual unless you pay again. ...

Late in April I put my ‘04 RT (dual plug) on “ice” for the summer in Naples and left it on its own to struggle through Hurricane Irma. I filled the tank with Premium, and put it on a non-AGM trickle charger (weekly 4 hour timer). When I got back 6 months later the first st...

Went for a little longer ride wearing my GT Air yesterday. It was less windy than my previous test ride. I am 100 % satisfied with the wind protection, fit and comfort. Not sure why this wasn't the case, but my sun visor didn't appear to fog up like my C3 Pro, in similar temps......

If you have ethanol as I guess you probably do, it will start eating the pickup screen ,the black rubber vibration damper and the float wiring in the tank. You can remove the gas cap, siphon out the gas, carefully lift the pump up a bit and reach in to feel the black vibration ...

Thanks, gents. I have the caps on order (as well as the air and fuel filters). I did put my finger over the one open vacuum port, and it didn't seem to make any difference, FWIW. The intake backfiring continued. Still little power on revving. BTW -- I listened real close to the ...

Purchased a Shoei Neotec from a reputable company in Italy a couple of years ago for about 200 less. Painless transaction and fast n free shipping. No complaints. However, a helmet purchased in Euro land won't be a DOT certified helmet; and will more than likely have the ratch...
