    The ABS would not work. The tone wheel for the front is on the wheel. The rear is inside the final drive. The ABS wont work until the computer verifies the synchronization of the front and rear wheel...

    Sticky: My close call.

    While riding at what I'll admit to as a "very spirited pace" on a local twisty road I had a minor brain fart (or two) that resulted in a very close call. I was cranking along on my RT in full, knee...

    I am sure you are on the right track with the tone ring mismatch.

    Unless you need the octane. Then if you are tuned for it you can get "race gas" at thousands of fuel stations instead of going to the speed shop or dragstrip.
  5. I do agree with you that for normal every day use...

    I do agree with you that for normal every day use E85 has almost no practical usefulness. The irony I was trying to point out is that E85 was conceived by the tree huggers and whole heartedly...

    Because if you tune your high performance street-strip car to run on it it's cheaper than race gas and has an octane rating in the neighborhood of 116. I know a few 2,000 hp street legal cars that...

    But E10 is only 10% corn. Try it on E85 ( assuming your car is capable) and see how horrible your mileage is.

    Thank you for keeping me honest. When I'm burning alcohol in the Dodge it sure SEEMS like I'm using twice as much.
  9. To clarify. The 2 cycle stuff of late has fixed...

    To clarify. The 2 cycle stuff of late has fixed jet non adjustable carburetors and adding ethanol seriously upsets the air fuel ratio. It would need fatter jetting to compensate for the lesser heat...

    RXCRIDER . Yes it was one of those. My 2 cycle power equipment was having FITS with the ethanol and this was the lesser of 2 evils. The octane issue is debateable in my opinion because of the btu...

    For thr 2 stroke power equipment I bought a funnel that will seperate wat er from gasoline. If you add water to ethanol fuel the ethanol binds with the water and the funnel will seperate the gasoli...

    Briggs and Stratton sold a great can about 10 years ago that met the lawyered up no spill requirement and was actually useable by someone without 3 arms. Second best in my opinion is No-Spill. Not...

    On two seperate occasions I had complex, bucket handle tears to both medial meniscus. I had both surgicallly removed. Walking without minuscus is the less evil option of walking on a torn one. I was...

    Did you wait for the bike to go to sleep before taking your measurement? The computer may wake up when the battery is reconnected such as when you put the ammeter in the circuit.

    My hat is off to the anonymous member. You're dealing with heavy stuff, you're gonna need friends to talk to even if they're online friends.

    I don't think there would be tax on the 2500. If anything it should be looked as a reduction of the selling price and therefore you should be entitled to a refund of the sales tax you paid on that...

    Personally I think the K1600GT is a closer option to the R1200Rt Than is the the K1600GTL. The 'gt has a more forward incline to the riding position and higher footpegs. The gtl stands the rider...

    The insurance deal shouldn't be that hard. You can insure a vehicle you don't own, think "lease". If BMW or your dealer provide you a loaner they are essentially leasing you the bike and they are...

    I don't have a horse in this race but........ I think an easy and reasonable solution to the warranty question would be to reset the 'in service' date on the affected bikes to the repair date. Just...

    I'll help anyone in distress, member or not. I am bothered by those who take the "members only" stand. This does not sit well with the general desire of the club to expand and bring in new members....
