Fuel Pump Seal Leakage

Good Luck.

Yes I change my own tires and balance them. I balance tires using a Marc Parnes balancer and lead weights. For highway travel I have noticed a difference balancing versus no balancing.

They are meant to be added to the OEM hard bags. These give you two anchor points on each hard bag for strapping down gear, and what ever else you come up with.
