    Going to have to play around with that. Still undecided on whether to tender or not.

    I like the concept of using it for period maintenance.

    I like what Andy said... And I will chime in about the clock. On my bike, if the battery is low, attempting to start the bike will reset the clock. So the reset clock in your case may be from the all...

    Well that's what I was thinking too, but then as I was standing at the counter buying the battery and pricing the tender another customer said "Just ride it.", which also makes sense. So what is the...

    I think I originally had MEZ4s on the bike. Those were replaced with Z-6s. For some reason it bugs me that there is no tread on the road (just the "slick" part) with the 6. I have not had any...

    I find about 3,000 RPM to be the minimum for any of my upper gears... Especially in 4th and above, 3K is about the LBL (limit before lugging) for me.
