Anyway, in more relevant news I put the new battery on the 1150 yesterday and gave it a fresh drink of Royal Purple since it was the same price as Mobile 1. The interesting thing is my top speed from 70 mph in 6th gear without downshifting is up to 104 indicated instead of 101 indicated and it was warmer today than yesterday.

It takes shifting to 5th to get into the power band and pull past 104. I guess I'll have to turn the GPS on this afternoon and see what happens.
Try some LL100...I gained 9mph and 6 Mpg
