    ^^^ This^^^^ I had no idea that I would need to dust off the old Starrett to get the correct size "mushroom". Was pretty amazed that it had a tolerance!

    Understood....

    That is why the EPA doesn't regulate the amount of Carbon that comes out your tailpipe. It isn't a pollutant. Carbon is harmless. It is used to filter air and water. I have a...

    I think I got it now: Higher combustion efficiency results in more pollutants and thus creates a smaller carbon footprint.

    Makes perfect sense <slaps forehead>...

    BTW, that old GL500 of yours...

    I'm pretty sure emissions has nothing to do with a vehicle's mileage. Whether a vehicle gets 1,000 miles/gallon or 1 mile a gallon is moot when it comes to exhaust emissions. Makes no difference in...

    I'm pretty sure the only form of transportation with a higher carbon footprint than motorcycles would be travel by jet liner ;-)

    Say you ride 10,000 miles year (that is about twice the avg/year).

    Bike A gets 45 mpg and Bike B gets 60 mpg

    Yearly difference in fuel costs would only be about $160

    If you want a...

    I "think" running rear ambers is illegal in all states, that is why you never see them on a vehicle. Rear running lamps must be red. Front running lamps are allowed to be amber.

    ^^^^^ You have motivated me to get off the couch and go change the brake fluid (I've done it once in the last five years!).

    Thanks for the pics!!

    I put my fuse block (not a buss) behind the battery cover in the frunk and just above the battery. Attached with velcro.

    I see two rotors and they are not the same. I would stick with an OEM part to eliminate one variable.

    Would it "hold up"? Sure....same as any other street bike.
    Is it the best (or even in the top five ) tool for the job?

    Heck no.

    "Raise the bar"... Kinda ironic since that is why modular helmets don't pass the Snell....When Snell drops their 11 lbs of steel weights on the chin bar of a modular, the bar will deflect in response...

    I have to be honest, the new 2020 w/ 6+ gallon tank, electronic cruise control, TFT colored screen, DCT, spoke rims and tubeless tires makes me think of trading up. My NC only has 50,000 miles so...

    You have two options:

    1. Read the manual written by the engineers that designed the drivetrain

    2. Ask a bunch of random dudes on an Internet forum.
