    I don't see it as a real problem. We all need reminders at times. Certainly myself included! It's all good at the end of the day.

    I also owned a 1998 Valkyrie. One of the best rides I ever owned....

    Frankly, I was not all that hyped about getting my 1st Spyder in 2007. Lamont was hyped enough for both of us, I'd say.

    Then, I was even less thrilled when I first began to ride it. It was nothing...

    The reason is that BRP recommends a wet clutch rated oil for the Ryker. But I think this is more a case of sell what you have than recommend what might be best. Just speculation. But it is a valid...

    Yes... You DO NOT want to apply any of this information to a Spyder with both wet clutch and transmission lubrication needs. Using an automotive, engine only oil in a Spyder would be very bad indeed!...

    I am not recommending anything yet because I have not personally run it or tested it. But frankly, I cannot see where it's going to be a big deal to run engine oil in an engine. I like Amsoil because...

    The burning question is... Why use a motorcycle specific oil (designed for a wet clutch and transmission application) when the Ryker requires neither of these? Why not use an automotive oil which has...

    I don't think the learning curve is ever actually 'Over'. But it does level out a great deal after about 1,000 - 1,500 miles. :thumbup:

    Wow! This boarders on the pathetic! With the KYB shocks on the Rally, the spring should be down and the adjuster on top of the spring.

    The drive belt for the Spyder is over-engineered for the job it has to do. It can take some abuse and keep on going just fine. Bearings for the input and output shafts... Not so much. Especially on...

    Run your front tire pressure at 19~20 PSI, if you are not already. Laser alignment by a qualified person would also be high on my recommendation list.

    Riding in the mountains is THE BEST!~

    I would like to know what tire pressure you're running in the front. Also, how did you find the install process as far as ease/clarity of instructions, etc.?

    Thank you!

    True, if the dealership is too lazy to do a thorough job. Frankly, I am surprised that they would even say this. It would be easier to just lie and say they did hook your Spyder up to BUDS.

    There is a fair amount of confusion about the sway bar. I get orders to replace 'Both' sway bars sometimes. Not sure where this got started. But previous posters are correct. 1 Bar, 2 End Links.
