    I don't have a manual in front of me, but might it be as simple as pulling a fuse? :dontknow:

    I don't know if the pump is on its own fuse or shares the circuit with something else.

    How long is your beard? Mine is not over an inch long, and I shave below the jaw line, so it does not get caught in the strap or buckle.

    A comb or brush is usually in the trunk or tank bag (on my...

    I tend to share Lew L.'s observations. The only vented windshield I have experienced is my Goldwing. Not a stock windshield, but a Tulsa "Tall". Although the windshield does a wonderful job of...

    No problem reading the attachment. Click on it. Twice.

    Also keep in mind that your "sealed" battery really IS vented.

    It has a special vent that allows gasses, but not liquid to pass, otherwise it would blow up when it gets charged.

    That said, I...

    I don't have anything that relies on a battery while I ride, but if I did have one, the battery would probably last until about 10 minutes before I got to my destination. :dontknow:

    I see three concerns, one of which might not be much of a problem.

    1. Towing backward with windshield attached. Behind a motorhome, there might be enough of a wind break, but if you try that...

    If the factory warranty has expired, you will have to look at aftermarket vendors. I have no idea who they are.

    Well, I'm not part of "most", I installed the 175/55. :dontknow:

    6 months on a fresh tire is nothing to worry about. It has probably been stored in a reasonable climate and under favorable conditions. :thumbup:

    We have Q5s on my wife's RT-S. :thumbup:

    175/55 up front, 205/60 on the rear. Although the rear is a bit narrower than stock, the 60-series aspect ratio make is just a wee bit taller than stock,...

    As Woodaddict says, there is a switch on the dash to control the suspension. It is labeled "Soft" and "Hard", which is a bit of a misnomer. Since it is auto-leveling, the pressure does not change...

    Yes, you can certainly save some energy by switching to LEDs, but on a Spyder, it's irrelevant. The alternator is capable of putting out so much more than the bike needs, so there is no need to...

    MOSTLY agreeing with Jay, here. You don't really have to have the brakes applied, but if you are not actively riding the bike, you SHOULD have the wheels chocked to prevent movement.

    The price here jumps just about every day. The station on the corner near me is 2.49 today, but I go a bit farther in the other direction to Sam's, where it is 2.14.

    One little detail that you should be aware of. There are only two reasons that the brake fluid will be low.

    He mentioned that you might need BUDS to reset something, but I think it's more related to the possibility that the swingarm will drop more than the height sensor will allow. You don't want the...

    WOW! 64 posts and only 5 of them mention tires.

    As much as I like to add farkles and lights, the two best mods were: front tires and rear tire.

    Anything else is just incidental. :dontknow:
