Thanks for the suggestions. I sent an email to Laam seats in Redding and hopefully I will hear back from Corbin. My previous experience with Corbins customer service responding was terrible. My neighbor is a retired firefighter and Harley guy that knows a lot of riders in the ...

Hey, Fabricator, Very interesting vid of your campsite in DV!! You really learn to appreciate tables and chairs when camping. Not to mention ROOFS and running water. Clean flat places are very handy for cooking, too. "The way I see it, the only way to drill a hole there...

Just doing a visual inspection of the tensioner may not be a reliable way to determine its ability to work properly. It needs to build up hydraulic pressure and not leak down too fast. I would replace it....

Alfred02, that might be worth a try. I got a GS-911 (gonna need it if I ever want to reset the service indicator after doing a minor service, so what the heck) and ran the calibration, and then took the bike for a ride. Unfortunately, I didn't do a before-and-after ride compari...

I've been quite happy with the skullcandy earbuds that I've purchased. Just the typical mushroom head earbuds every teenager has - they're reasonably durable, and not terribly expensive. Some models fit better than others under the helmet (also neotec). I've got the "smok...

Not quite the same topic, but this post has pictures that were very helpful in dis-assembling my side cases. My latches were very stiff, to the point that I feared breaking the latch when opening them. Using that post as a guide, I took the inner case out and found that the are...

Although I have a 2011 rt, much of the running gear is essentially the same I think. My bike has now done 112,000 miles in UK weather all year round. I don't know what the weather gets like where you come from or if the bike has been used in poor conditions - so much of what I ...
