    Just got an email from Ted Porter's website this morning. They are recalling a large number of bikes for the fuel pump flange cracking issue. I have two bikes subject to it. 2011 GSA and 2007 KGT....

    My two cents

    Loosen the knobs found in the tailcone assembly and the rear fender sides out towards the back of the bike. The wheel can then be removed without interference. Like someone else said, check your...

  9. Can't seem to get my ABS to shut off on my GS

    Only one way to not make the wrong decision

    Don't sell the RT until after you get a GT. Then get rid of the one that doesn't suit you which may be tough. If I lived somewhere with flat straight roads, I would lean toward the GT because that...
