When I was shopping for lights the Skene IQ-175 was the reason I almost went with another setup.

Over the winter I was getting close to 200 before the light came on, 210 (miles) once. Then they switched to the summer blend gas, more ethanol and it dropped back down to mid 180's when the light...

Well, after placing my order Monday late afternoon and being told they were a little backed up on wiring harnesses, I had zero expectation of getting the lights this week.

I was shocked to have a...

Looking at the wheel, the spacer sleeve must have been held in by the shaft seal. I think it may have fallen out at the shop when they were mounting and balancing the tire.

I guess I have to...

I just took it apart and looked at the Microfiche, looks like I'm missing the spacer on the left side. I didn't hear it hit the floor when the wheel came off. I can't seem to find it on the floor. ...

I just put a K60 (140/80 17) on mine. $150 for the tire and a tube and another $30 for the install.

I almost went with the stock size, 130/80, but figure the sold center strip on the 140 will be...

I got something similar at Cabela's on sale for around $8. I make sure to keep it out side my jacket, on top of the collar, when it is raining. On the bad days it stops about 95% of the water, on...

Now I just need to find one without paying an arm and a leg. I don't feel like paying for a Corbin or similar right now. Maybe after another full day of riding I'll feel like forking out some cash.

So is the tall seat more comfortable? I'm guessing they use the same pan and more foam to get the tall. I would like more height, but need more comfort. It only takes about an hour before my...

Sorry, there is no way it is that easy or inexpensive. A proper motorcycle accessory costs at least 8% of the bikes value and/or takes 37 man hours of labor to do it yourself.
