    I replaced my stock one with a SH775BA. I did not install any fuse. I figured that the amps flowing through the wires shouldn't be any different than before and the bike already had a way to deal...

    We're a little biased, but I'd say go for it. Great bike!

    Depending on how you have your wee strom set up, the F800ST could easily replace it. It is the best all around (other than off road) bike...

    It'll be fine, from my experience most dealers/shops put then on as tight as they can get them (cars and bikes). Too tight will just make it hard to get off next time.

    I guess I should have included mileage. It was right at 50,000 miles when I swapped out the engine.

    Yes, this virus can only live outside an animal while its thin fat layer can protect it. Soap and hot water is the best way to kill it. Steam, UV radiation, ozone, bleach and other chemicals will...

    We need some clarification: What does "I tried jumping it but it won’t jump" mean? If you hook it up properly and leave it connected, your bike will work as if the battery in your bike is fine.

    That's all good advice. I also doubt it's a fuel problem. I would also check your charging system. You can start by just measuring voltage at idle. 14.1 give or take .2 is what you're hoping for. It...
