    I love roundabouts! Thankfully they are finally showing up in the upper Midwest. In the past 5 years, 4 have been added in the 4 miles between my house and the freeway. They have saved me an average...

    I have not switched to led, but I have added additional LEDs to a couple lighting circuits on my ST (led strip lights as additional brake lights and turn signals integrated into my topcase). So I can...

    I don't see any sand or dirt, in fact everything looks really clean. Maybe you are referring to an area not shown in the picture? Make sure you add some silicone gasket goo to the front left corner...

    Glad you figured it out, but I must say that I am surprised. I literally went into my garage and put several wrenches on the bolts on my 08 ST and can confirm that they definitely are T40 and not...

    Just wash it like when you wash the rest of the bike. Dust shouldn't hurt it. Rocks on the other hand can do damage.

    It will squeek and groan when you move it around with the engine off,...

    Don't put anything on it! That's the beauty of having a belt. You should be able to get 30-40 thousand miles on one without touching it. I replaced my first one after 35,000 and it still looked...

    Your bike does not have any fuses. The computer (ZFE) controls all the circuits and will shut one down before too many amps will cause a problem. This is the same system that sensed a blown bulb.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I've been wearing earplugs for 15 of my 20 years of riding. I've never had a problem with them other than when they get too much dirt, water, ear wax, or oil on them....

    If the part numbers are different then I wouldn't risk it. Will they fit and will they work? Who knows, and I doubt anyone would take the chance to try it out. The forks are also different part...

    It got up to 12F today (-11C). Thankfully it's supposed to get into the 40's (7C) this weekend. I'll get out and make sure the bike still works this weekend. It's not often we can ride in February...

    I'm not the OP, so he might have some other reasons for wanting to do this, but unfortunately they (everyone) stopped making crash bars for the ST a few years ago. I know several people who want them...

    You can see the bolts by just looking at it. They're all exposed. It's a T40 head.

    You should get 12+ volts when you turn the key on. For that matter, you should be able to hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds as it builds pressure.

    You could have a fuel pump controller...

    I've only sold 2 bikes, and both went to friends/acquaintances for cash. Interestingly, I bought my f800st from Craiglist in a city about a 4 hour drive from here. I've sold 4 cars on Craigslist. My...

    I've had the fuel pump out and changed the filter at the bottom of it, but I've never messed with the other end of the fuel system other than to move the whole rail in order to replace my throttle...

    I know it's not exactly the same thing, but I mounted my "dash cam" under the headlight. I drilled a couple holes in the black plastic and bolted it on upside-down. Seems to work well for me.

    I love the PR too. I had 3's, then 4's, now 5's. I put my 5's on last spring (April for those of us in the northern hemisphere). I did 8000 miles (about 13000k) since then, half of it at 80+mph on a...

    It would be worth checking the voltage, but I doubt that's the problem. If voltage was so low to cause a stall, it would be way too low for it to start. An engine requires a small fraction of the...

    Check the little "sidelight" that's next to the main headlight. Mine has gone out twice and it's hard to notice when it's out.

    I hate to mention it at this point, but if you haven't yet, you should consider a new set of pads too. Old pads on new disks don't always go so well. Especially if they are different brands. I ran...

    Pick up a shop manual if you haven't yet.

    I would hold off on the vacuum hoses and see if it develops stalling problems. It certainly didn't happen to everyone. Or you can do what I did and just...

    To compound the problem, the SAE number we are used to seeing on fork oil isn't very helpful. Apparently the range is too wide, and there are other considerations that are more important in fork oil...
