    Don't feel bad about blowing a rear shock seal at 14K. On my '09 RT it blew at less than 1K and I was advised not to ride it as the rest of the fluid may leak on the tire and cause a crash. ...

    On my 2009 RT, I have the chrome muffler, and I guess the chrome pipes. With 22K the headpipe portion is streaked blue--but it doesn't bother me a bit. When I first got it, one of my Harley riding...

    On my last two hexheads, I have used the "on the rock" method of determining TDC for adjusting the valves and it has seemed to work well with the BMW's as it did with the old Triumphs. With the...

    Kind of sounds like they all act up in direct sun. I probably will just fabricate some type of sunshield, as I already have my gps mounted on the clutch res. I still have a year of warranty if it...

    The duc's did have charisma. I had a 1965 250 scrambler ($750 ) and my friend had a '64 Diana--which he raced at San Angelo Tx. With a Ravisi cam, lightened etc, that little 250 would scream down...

    Works great--puts me to sleep, just like in my car! I don't use it on curvy roads, which includes ALL of them here in AR. It seems to apply throttle at the wrong time. Fine for KS and NE, or any...

    Didn't think it was necessary on the R-1200's--but I'm sure it would help in a marginal cold weather crank. I used one on my Cagiva Elefant and it made the difference between night and day starting....

    A little heads up for those who mount their own tires. The Shinko "light spot" on their tires has what looks like a little red sunburst on the sidewall--really hard to see if you don't know what it...
