    Actually, you should use some oil. Otherwise your engine is NOT getting proper lubrication and will wear out quickly. :yikes:

    It is not like the old days where there were mechanical odometers and they could simply put a drill on it and run it backwards overnight! :rolleyes:

    Thanks! I didn't get it perfect, but close enough. I redid the center one, because it was a little off center and on a slight angle.

    BTY: it looks better in person.

  8. Poll: How Much Oil Have You Had To Add Prior To 6,000 Miles?

    Just curious. I'm at about 800 miles, and it looks like it is about 3/4 of the way to needing to add a quart.

    Unbelievably, my DIESEL engine (which SHOULD be good for 100s of 1000s of miles) BLEW recently at on 113,000!!! It was cheaper (supposedly) but not cheap to swap engines with a used one. The...

    Nothing at all to be nervous about when you are in FULL CONTROL.

    It takes as little effort to return throttle to idle as it does giving throttle with stock setup. If you can do one, you can just...

    Not much actual cross section against the wind! My Yamaha Majesty with LARGE custom mounted saddleboxes still got 50 MPG, and so did my Piaggio MP3 500 3 wheeler. Heck, my SLINGSHOT with 2,400cc...

    My 1998 Jetta TDI routinely got 55 MPG, and it is 1,900cc vs. 600, 90 HP vs. 47, and a whole lot HEAVIER!!! ...

    But black on charcoal is less visible. I guess like they say "to each his own". Should have painted letters charcoal too, for FULL invisibility. :barf:

    Extended warranties are a waste of money. Defective parts will far more than likely fail during normal warranty period. Few failures after that.
