    Back to the origional question...
    The batteries on these cars are in the trunk, are AGM, in an odd size, and are very spendy! They do last a long time but don't think your everyday Interstate...

    You've moved on ..... but going to a higher profile tire and lowering the air pressure in them does wonders for the Miata's ride- like Yokohama S.drive 195/55R15. Combine with a softer shock and...

    We bought a '95 Merlot special edition 13 years ago and plan to let the kids inherit it when we die. It had 80K miles and except for tires, fluids and a timing belt and water pump it's going strong....
  5. I agree

    I thought we all knew that! 1. any oil is better than no oil 2. use the manufacturer's recommendation 3. change it on a miles/time manufacturer schedule.

    Sure it's hunky-dory now! I never used one of these driveshafts on a BMW out of phase but I did on my first car a 1960 Valiant. I loved that 3 on the floor and 225 slant six. It got a clutch job...

    How to spend your money

    I would be the last to suggest how you should spend your money but you did ask. I am cheap and for much of my life needed to be. I do nearly all my service even tough jobs. I have a lot of...

    Switch

    Sounds like you need to research the functioning of that Euro switch. Do a wire wiggle test on the wires coming out of it. Do you have the origional switch? Plugging it in would tell you if it's...

    I would

    That seems like a good deal. You don't say how many miles on it, this engine seems bullet proof for a loooong time. 2001's were prone to stalling and surging but there are fixes for both including...
  12. In NH-VT-ME

    We live in a sweet spot in terms of SEEING motorcycles. Not only are there a lot of bikes/person they do get ridden in the summer. This coupled with a major motorcycle event (Laconia Bike week)...

    I saw that same bike at the Progressive show in Phoenix. It is amazing how little different it is than my 2002. I like the other colors as the World has plenty of black motorcycles, ETHO. Goes to...

    R1100R spoke

    I have a 1998 R1100R which has spoke wheels (75th Anniversary Edition) and it should be just like the R850 I think. These spokes are like the GS wheels which are tubeless with the spokes at the rim....

    I hear ya

    Kent,
    Yea I would think the same... except.
    The bike had an annual service about 750 miles before done by the PO. The "old" plug looked "new". The recommendation on F650.com FAQ has many other...

    Spark Plug Tune up 2002 F650

    I have spent a lot of time on the info pages for my F650GS. I had read that a projected tip Iridium spark plug would improve the slight surging that it had. Well... I installed an NGK DPR8EIX-9...
  19. If someone doesn't have it.

    Having insurance ahead is best but if someone doesn't get insurance you can stop here in Ajo on your way through and pay for just the few days you plan to be in MX. I've used many vendors and all...

    NO don't do it!

    There is NO WAY I would commit to buying a transmission until I had mine apart (or someone had it apart for me) as it may be another $200 gone and unneeded. IMHO you need to get this bike taken...

    UltraLite

    I hear you. Last year I decided a good-sized backpack is about the same size (56 liters) as the combined system cases on my R1100R. I sold some vintage backpacking gear and used the proceeds to buy...

    I'd ask for a return authorization from that vendor and order another seal.... from them if they agree or from a new vendor which would probably become my go to seller. If you are unsure (as I am)...

    Well I don't

    is it time?

    Egad. I just realized I've ridden for 53 years this year. I started riding a 150cc Lambretta scooter at 12, Triumph 500 and 650 at 14. Does that mean I gotta begin thinking of hanging up the...

    another factor?
