Re: Dunlop Elite 4's

Those “bars”aren’t wear bars. I noticed them when I got my new tires and they were already flush to the tread. They are are part of the tread pattern

Re: How to remove rear tire?

Lay it down, put it in gear, break the lugs, remove the tire. Get new tire mounted, re assemble. Total time working in bike - 39 minutes.
Nuff said

Re: Stripped seat bolt mount holes

1) try to retap with proper tap thread.
2) get tapered bolts.
3) use good quality teflon tape, but don't over tighten.

before you hook plug in your i-phone, try disabling the auto-lock (brightness and display). mine also only reads the phone as ipod.

Re: Fuel injectors cleaning?

And thats why I'm a HUGE fan of not cleaner but an ethynol stabilizer/cleaner like lucas oil green stabilizer. prevents fuel breakdown AND ethynol based gas from builing waterduring storage. IMHO of course. :lol:

Re: Dash Removal

the speaker grill is one piece and will pop off from its grommet pins. start low at the key hole and pull upand then one by one release the grill. you'll need to disconnect the tweeter wires and the large connector for the display in the housing. very easy.
