Re: Intermittent Won't Start Problem - Only During Evenings

I'll give new plugs a whirl and see if it changes anything. Currently, the bike is still stranded at my girlfriend's office outside. I had mentioned to her that the bike always fires up in the...

Honda Grom 125 Headlight Swap

Re: Headlight Mounting

FYI - ended up liberally applying PB Blaster to the screw, then drilling it out. The screw is a standard metric screw that I replaced with one from the local hardware store. Lesson to self - apply...

Re: To change or not to change...

04 599 with around 8k miles, original rear tire- the pilot road 1. Still had easily another 4k miles on the tread, and I've always been a fan of the pilot road 1 (owned two...

Just got a new YUASA YTX7L-BS battery and tried to install it.

Not sure if it fits properly as it didn't seem to slide all the way into the slot with the terminals hooked up.

Re: Soo... Ear Buds for riding?

I left my etymotic er6i on a flight several years ago, and have mourned the loss of those ear buds for a good while. Probably the best sounding ear buds that could sneakily fit underneath a helmet....

Re: Coolant Flush NEW

The coolant that came out of my 04 599 was nice and brown. Coolant probably wasn't changed at any time within the past 9 years.
