    You don't say which year RT you have. Some are much worse 2-up than others. One thing nice about the sway bar is it not only enhances 2-up riding, it does so without creating a harsh 1-up ride....

    Awesome! I am happy to get any feedback I can. I'm not saying car tires are a bad idea. The right car tire can work very well. The problem has been the dwindling supply in sizes that fit the Spyder....

    I am sure you know this. But torque in increments. Actually, I hand torque with a 1/2" drive ratchet and then take it the rest of the way (in increments) to the finished amount. I skip a lug every...

    There is a leaning curve coming off of 2 wheels. In the early days, many just gave up because no one realized that it was the rider more than the machine. The Spyder may seem twitchy and even...

    I have been a big proponent of mounting car tires to Spyders from early on. Frankly, the OEM Kendas are atrocious. But I have found the same thing you mention to be true with some of the car tires...

    I think you will like it. It's cheap, easy to do, maintenance free and works great! Actually looks pretty cool too. But you can't see it with the panels on. A shame really.

    Sounds like a likely issue. Or some kind of internal leak inside the fuel tank not allowing enough pressure to build. Let us know what you discover. Could even be a computer issue.
