    My 05 RT rear U-Joint failed at 82k miles. I happened to notice something reflecting light when doing a FD flush. Looked closer and saw some needle bearings shining. Bad sign. Replaced it with a...

    8,500 miles on a cross-country trip 2 years ago. Added about 1/8 of a quart when my buddy was filling his and had some left over. I never worried about running that far; oil was only 3 weeks old...

    Very inexpensive, but functional solution. Purchase two of the (very large) ziploc type bags. They come with a handle moulded in, so carrying is easy. Close to be 100% watertight. They hold a lot...

    I had them on an 05 RT. Wonderful bars; strong, good looking and very functional. The only drawback on these bars is that I had to remove them for valve checks. Some have reported that they were...

    I can't speak for the PR 3s and extra miles with the heavier duty tire, but I get about 3k more miles from a "B" Pirelli ST than a normal tire of same kind. I ride solo about 98% of the time and...

    I've replaced so many H7 bulbs on my RTs (an 05 and now an 09) that I got fed up with doing it. So, I installed a HID kit from DDM Tuning ($35.00 plus shipping for two kits) and stopped the madness....

    I know my odor is not due to the clutch; it appears sometimes after long runs on the slab, as well as riding around town. Don't smell it all the time, but pretty frequently it's there. Also, a...

    I have exactly the same thing with my 09 RT. It has been going on for the last 25K miles or so, and I cannot find the source of the leak. No stains on the exhaust. No drips. Nothing at all to...

    FWIW, my 05 RT used non-synthetic oil until almost 30K miles. Then it stopped using any, so I switched to synthetic. Never needed to add oil again between oil changes.

    Long story, but I'll try to make it short. I had an 05 RT with ESA. At around 72K miles, the OEM shocks were beginning to get pretty tired, and the preload had stopped working so I looked a options...

    No problem at all. However, I believe when you've done the oil change, and added the oil, the 4 quarts will be plenty. You never get all the old oil drained, so mine never holds 4 full quarts...

    Go to your nearest Autozone store and look at the oil filter wrenches there. One is a 3-fingered apparatus that cost less than $10 and works for virtually any oil filter. Not pretty, and not fancy,...

    I guess I'm just confused. What does "useable" mean? I had an 05 RT earlier in which I pumped 7.1 gallons once and 6.9 gallons several times. And the engine was running like normal each of these...
