    I know each manufacturer is different as to how they measure the tires, but the specs give a little insight as to the tires. In example, Vredestein's UTGQ is 400, but that may be equivalent to some...

    I'll be the first to say I'm not in the racer category. I go on simplistic terms, like how does it do in moderate rain, etc. I won't push the envelope in the rain unless it's a matter of life and...

    I had considered doing that, but they say the later models don't have too much issue with the problem. Time will tell.

    I'm in the belt dampener being a positive thing camp, but I've had an unusual thing happen. I've been smelling a rubber burning smell when I stop for a while now. I've checked my dampener for heat...

    I'm still in test pilot mode with the asymmetrical Vredestein on the back. So far I have not noticed anything unusual in normal rain, but need to find a puddle deep enough to cause a rear only...

    My 2018 RTL had one side of the axle drilled, no split pin. I drilled the other side and installed the split pin when I replaced the rear tire. Overabundance of caution I reckon. Thankful they at...

    Mr. UtahPete,
    I don't. As a matter of fact, when there is any other alternative to something manufactured in China, I buy that. When it is unavoidable, I am vary careful in using it, as I expect...

    I may be way off, but how does sodium chlorite have anything to do with Methylsulfonylmethane ? Not a chemist.

    Does the mudflap actually fix that problem? I rode in the rain and got wet from the turbulence off of the rear of the bike. Looking for a solution.

    I got caught on a bike in a hail storm in Colorado in 2003, nickle and quarter size hail beat me black and blue by the time I found shelter less than a mile down the road. That was pretty bad,...

    Great write up. The Spyders have a few idiosyncrasies that can be addressed. I believe once you get it past the "work the bugs out" phase they can be very reliable long distance machines. Mine had...

    Not only is Baja Ron's customer focus outstanding, his bar is made in the USA. Where is the other bar made?

    I not only removed the rear tire from the bike, but I bought a manual tire machine and changed the rubber myself. Also bought a balance shaft and static balanced it. I'm not that familiar with the...

    With what Baja Ron said. I ride an RTL which is a bit more portly. I did most of my installations one at a time so I could kind of tell which ones worked, and how much they did. My bike...

    Mr. bcraig,

    I stand corrected, good catch. That's about $89 cheaper than the Baja Ron. When I was looking they did not include the ends as I remember it.
