    Why are motorcycles losing the fuel economy race?

    As the CAFE and EPA standards get tougher on cars and trucks we are seeing fuel economy being forced higher for most vehicles on the road.

    Buying a previously owned windshield - ebay

    Well I saw what looked like a decent price on a Vstream on eBay. I have been trying to address a handguards contact with the Madstad windshield and thought for the price of $120 for a used screen it would be worth giving it a shot. There was no description of any damages or anything on the...

    Non-linear fuel gauge... When does your first bar go away?

    I know the fuel gauge has been beaten to death in the forum. I did some searching and I see most of the focus is on the move from 2 bars to flashing to tell you to get gas. Also that the fuel gauge drops rapidly. So yesterday I fueled up and ran some errands and waited and watched to see...
