    My RT, with 38K mile, went "powerless" on my commute to work. Emboldened by Paul Glaves article in the ON, and not sure what the culprit was, I have torn the bike down and found that the splines...

    Tire wear question

    I have all 3 for my '96 RT also. I get more use out of the Clymer, but find myself bouncing between the 3 for the best picture and explaination. Even then you'll get a lot out of specific DIY...

    I promised an update on how the re-attachment went. I got several suggestions to use 3M tape. Since 3M makes many, I went with the Auto Acrylic Plus. There are a couple of part numbers, but the 1/2...
