    Halogen vs. LED Lighting?

    Does anyone know why the Spyder still uses the power hungry, hot running Halogen lights instead of LEDs? I have replaced mine with LEDs but it seems BRP is still holding on to an obsolete...

    I honestly can't think of anything on the road that can stop as fast as the Spyder. I think it seriously increases the danger of being hit from behind during heavy braking- I always check the mirror...

    I called M2 today to pay for my new set of shocks. Much better price at $1300 then the price on the website

    Talked to Marcus. Very friendly and he is definitely a "shock absorber" guy!

    M2 or Elka- Worth the Money?

    Just bought the Vred front tires/General rear but not mounted yet. Already have the sway bar mod (which IS worth it).

    Looking at some (very expensive, it seems to me) after market shocks. Like to...

    Well the bike is into the dealer for the air bag leak. It leaks very slowly if not sat on so they don't see any bubbles.

    The service manager said it might be leaking back thru the compressor.

    On the F3-T the inflation is manual via a Schrader valve.

    By the way I just talked to my dealer and they are quoting a month to fix this.

  19. Can Am "Spot On" alignment tool without Lasers?

    I just got a text back from my local dealer. Says they do not have a laser alignment tool but can get it "spot on" with the Can Am approved tool.

    ?

    Your thoughts?

    Key Holder- Maybe

    I too have the key holder. Works great for grouping you keys with others, but.....the plastic key frame holds the key out of the lock ever so slightly which makes it difficult to open Fronk etc.

    Another BR Disciple

    Just installed mine. Quite the struggle to get the bushing blocks in, but once done the result is immediately apparent.

    Wonder why the factory doesn't up their game and revamp the stock unit?

    Speaking of Keys

    Hello,

    Just picked up my first Spyder- F3-T. I notice that the keys don't have a hole to allow them to be put on a key ring. This seems amazingly lame. Am I missing something?

    Thanks
