    Same in San Jose, it's been dark all day and there's a visible layer of ash on the roads. The Mendocino and Plumas fires got BIG over the last two days.

    I own an F900XR and I came from an F800GS, not exactly a GT but the engine was on the same platform. The engine and tech on the XR is a very nice improvement over the 800 platform. Additionally,...

    The Motion Pro tool is pretty awesome, I have one for both my bikes but no one stocks them so you have to plan ahead. That said the universal fit one at Cycle Gear (Stockton Tools) works pretty well...

    You should see the monster that is under the new 900's. It's not so much the emissions as it is the sound, shall we call it 'tuning'. I read an article about this recently where they said that they...

    I bought a socket from home depot and ground it down on a bench grinder. Worked perfectly, was cheaper than the 'special' socket and took about 5 minutes of my time.

    The O2 harnes is the only thing it plugs into besides a ground connection. There is an 'in' and 'out' for the O2 harness, so two plugs but they plug in at the same spot.
