    Shaft Drive?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with an Aramid belt drive. Harley Davidson has had them for awhile now. They're quiet, never needs lubrication, and are less costly to replace than a shaft drive....

    The Wave

    Octane Used or Preferred

    I believe the owner's manual calls for 87 octane as a minimum, and 91 octane recommended inside North America. I have to wonder what BRP would say about using non ethanol fuel?
  10. Nothing Like an Old Bike

    I've enclosed a jpeg here of an older bike. I've had two of these, and as unsophisticated as they were, I'd surely take another one. They vibrated parts off, leaked oil, and easily overran the...

    Over pricing?

    Over pricing? Just a bit. I think someone, unintentionally added a "0" to the sale price. Even without the "0", I still think it's a little too costly.

    LED Replacement

    I have a 2012 Can Am Spyder RT-SE5. It came with the standard halogen light bulbs, but I replaced them with LED bulbs. Made a world of difference.
