    About the only negative to 10% ethanol fuel here in the states is that it goes stale pretty fast and when it does, it turns to jelly. If you have vehicles that only see the road occasionally, you...

    'The old man' your original question was a fair one and your thinking to adjust your riding style is worth trying. There often seems to be new F800 owners here, so this is my experience from being...

    Hats off to the guy for effort, but K&N spray cleaner and a 3 gallon bucket of warm water works pretty well. Probably won't see those in many baja trophy truck pits. I could be wrong!

    This issue was very much on my mind yesterday. My fuel light came on at 200 miles and 26 miles later, I pulled into a fuel station. My 2013 800GT took 3.786 gallons of fuel. Was not sure I would make...

    This isn't a detailed review of the Garmin Huntview because I've only used it a couple times myself this spring, but so far it is working well. Last summer we started riding outside our normal dual...

    I wasn't aware the ST didn't have TPM sensors :confused:, thanks. Out of curiosity I checked my GT yesterday and it now has three 7g (1/4oz) weights, with Bridgestone T31s mounted. I've mostly used...

    So lucky that didn't cause an accident or jam up and damage the engine/transmission (maybe a belt drive plus). Hard to imagine how the pulley hub could fail symmetrically and instantly like that. The...

    I think it might be a combination of bikes that were not selling and the chance to upgrade and refresh the model. What Kawasaki did with the KLR made good business sense. End production, let the...
