    Renthal offers their dual compound trips in a slightly larger diameter. I'm on my second set and like them. They are grippy and easy on gloves, but only last a few seasons.

    Make sure you're checking the dipstick with the bike on its side stand after the engine has been shut off for a few minutes. It takes a while for oil to drain back into the tank. The dipstick is...

    I use a T-Rex stand on both my XB and my wife's SV. Plenty wide for both. They're a big enough name, I have to image they have a distributer in the U.K.

    here's a little fun from last weekend at ZARS. It was women's day on Sunday, and I decided to be Umbrella Man for my wife. We got a ton of laughs for this one!

    Oh, and Cooter is spot on. Wash it, dry it, ride it. Don't stress about the belt, inspect it every now and then for cracks and just ride the thing. I wash mine with a garden hose and dry it with a...

    Sorry about the link, I didn't check it. It's just a kit with a couple gaskets and an oil filter, no biggie. If you can get out to ride another one, it would be good to have a second reference point....

    Clunky shifting and major vibration are normal for XBs. The shift lever does take some effort to operate compared to smoother Japanese transmissions. Change out the primary oil with amsoil, it will...

    Will trade $2300 bike for diesel truck... any diesel truck you can buy for that price is gonna be less reliable than a 108k mile bike.

    Wish I could, I'm tied to my desk all day.

    If it's super clean, up to $4k seems reasonable. Anything over that would have to be really special for me to bite.

    That one in Milwaukee might be on original tires still. If you look at it, check the date codes to see. Anything older than five years is junk, so plan to budget for tires on almost any older low...

    Don't bag on the umbrella, that thing is awesome! Also, it was women's day at the track, so I thought it'd be funny to play up the umbrella man joke.

    Don't open the package on that new pump until you pull and inspect the old one. Could be a case of chaffed wires in the pump assembly. If that's the case, you can repair the wires and be back on the...

    If all he's changing is the springs, he's likely just matching them to his weight. I agree though, the stock suspension on the XB line is really good.
