    Something bad wrong with that bike. Hmmm? Yes, that's it! It is way too clean.

    What weight oil are you using? While I have no desire to start that argument again, running in warm temps switching to 20w-40 (like Yamaha says too pg 8-1) makes the bike run a lot cooler. It makes a huge difference in 90+ weather.

Great places to explore I have only just begun to ride in. My brother rode all through those areas years before I moved out here from the people's republic of California 5 years ago, so he's my guide. I'd like to get those folding mirrors.
    It only takes one well placed sharp rock ! this plate is thicker then the one from moose on my DR. The folding mirrors are the cheaper ones on procycle and you have to get the adapter for the right side the stock ones I was looking at my shoulders.Paul

    Not trying to start any controversy , but, wouldn't running 10w-40 be better on startup than 20w-40 or 20w-50 ? and still have the latter protection .
