Try Khumo Ecsta AST. Have routinely gotten 22-24,000 on them. 17,000 is probably top end on the originals (I got 16 on each of two RTs), but as already mentioned in this string age is a major factor,...

Happy endings are great! We actually have two of those horrendous dealers for our "home" dealer - something always seems to get damaged when it goes in for the simplest service. Having said that,...

Good questions! We've made room reservations but haven't found a way to register for the event itself! Great time in 2012!

Thanks to both of you! See your posts often in many threads. They do always seem to "shed some light" or at least lighten the load a bit.

Thanks! The cable was what I didn't think of yesterday. So, for anyone doing this: remove upper side panels and whatever comes w/ them, remove the headlight cowl, or whatever it's called, remove 4...

Thanks! Maybe! Have had it that far apart except the frunk. Seems like the whole headlight assembly ought to slide out - w/ the removal of 4 bolts per - once the cowl piece is off, but it doesn't...

Seems a bit low, but who cares? Don't think you have a problem, if that was your concern. Back in April at Spyderfest (Pit Bull version) one of the guys made at least a dozen drag strip runs trying...

Exactly! Ride in the Phoenix area, 20,000 miles per year - hot feet and legs are an issue only on those short trips when we try to sneak by w/ shorts and sneakers. Jeans (or more) and boots will...

Seems that if you ride moderately and rotate them once - "rotate" involves remounting - you might get 30,000 miles. Have been told that adding Elka shocks, Pitbull mounts and an anti-sway bar will...

What are you running to get 22,000? I have twice gotten 16,000 on the rear tire and would like to see better, but the local dealer will charge twice as much to mount it as one bought from him, so...

Planning on one front end improvement at a time on our 2011 RT. Any thoughts as to which change - the shocks, the sway bar, or the relocators - will give the best results on its own? The end...

Lived and rode in that area for years, tho not on a Spyder. Accidents happen, unfortunately. Be careful, but don't worry about the machine!

Smile Thanks

Thanks Buttsy. Sounds interesting - are you saying the old grips didn't need to come off, just be trimmed down? Agree that losing the low setting would not be a big deal.
