    I don't think you'll see any meaningful difference in 3000 miles. Seriously, if the measurements are fine and there's no obvious groove in the rotor, you've got many, many thousands of miles before...

    Those are the "as new" measurements for the 08 RT brake rotor thickness. You have half a millimeter to go on each before you reach the max acceptable wear.

    I don't think there are any rain covers that I've seen specifically designed for the tank bag, particularly given that the inside liner is meant to be cinchable to make it reasonably watertight.

    I don't think so - I'm pretty sure that the alternator belt is the thing with the longest repetitive interval. I suppose it's possible the experts have some unofficial long-mileage things to look...

    If you were "stuck" on 48, I'm curious how many miles it had been since you had reset it prior to this recent one. My thinking is that if you never reset the gauge in normal practice, the average...

    At 48, I think you're supposed to do the "24's" again, so that probably implies it's time to change plugs and air filter again too, along with the usual 6 and 12k interval stuff.

    Ahh - you have the "whizzy brakes." The later years can be flushed like normal brakes without having to get to the ABS controller.

    Running that much warmer seems very odd. I am a lot more suspicious of that oil filter than the oil itself, but at the same time I don't think the oil...

    CalSci's windshields are acrylic and not polycarbonate (or maybe it's the other way around) but I'd bet it contains ammonia because it's safe for their windshields, which they make a big deal about...

    You should check with MOA. there were last minute cancellations last year so maybe there will be again. I know they don't really want to turn people away.

    Oh, and 20w-50 vs. 10w-40 is just a matter of temperature. If you routinely ride in temps over 80F, 20W-50 is the right thing to use - but you're unlikely to hurt anything using 20w-50 unless it...

    The manual I'm looking at says 11nm for the "oil filter to engine", not 8. The "oil filler plug" is 8nm, but that's just the plastic cap on the left cylinder. 32 is correct for the drain plug.

    There's really no right answer to this, but I agree with your assessment. The RT likes to be run in the upper 3K's/lower 4's, and 6th gear usually just feels better at 70+ mph than at lower speeds.

    If you're turning what I think you're turning, the screw is inside the hole in the center of that thing and you need a tool to turn it - you can't turn it with your fingers.
