    2020 Subaru Forester 10 months 9816 miles

    Today I performed my 6k mile or 12 month (which ever comes first) scheduled maintenance on my 2020 Subaru Forester. Owners Manual specified changing cabin filter which I did. Didn't look bad at all, but changed any way since I have 2 on hand. Waste of money to change so early on......

    The Harley-Davidson 2021 "Live" Virtual Product Launch

    I wish Harley Davidson (and Indian for that matter) great sales and growth for 2021. But I'm not excited for the newer released 2021 H-D models video either. No surprise to me if H-D discontinues the Live Wire or any electric two wheeler at this point in the game. And yep, younger folks are not...

    Indian FTR line is getting a more sport focused option ..

    Reminds me of the short lived 2008 Harley Davidson XR1200. Not sure if this type of sports bike will light the spark with an Indian name. Wish them luck!

    Do any of you tow a trailer behind your motorcycle?

    I'm not a fan of 2 wheeled trailers for motorcycles. A close riding friend has a large one wheeled trailer for his 2008 FLH Ultra Classic. I'm not sure on make/model, but I can find out quickly if your interested. It's neat since all 3 wheels are in alignment at all times and has given him no...

    New or reman calipers

    I installed new Raybestos Element 3 front calipers (plus rotors & pads) this spring on my 2012 Toyota Tacoma 2.7L 4x4. Easy change out and perfect fit. Could of gone with re-manufactured but chose not to. So far trouble free and working well. Purchased them through Rock Auto and I believe...

    Save the manuals?

    Learned a MT in my 1970 Maverick with 3 on the tree! Have owned many since and currently my 2012 Tacoma is a MT. Still like an AT for heavy stop & go traffic. Back in 2002 went to Europe with a group of 50 co-workers and we were issued 6 Mercedes-Benz vans as our transportation vehicles. All...

    Raybestos Element3 Brakes and rotors for a 2014 Toyota Corolla

    I used Element 3 rotors and brake pads (plus Raybestos calipers) on my 2011 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 purchased through Rock Auto earlier this summer. Holding up well and no issues. Nice savings vs Toyota OEM parts.

    2016 HD FLHTK Limited Spectro Golden 25W-50 Semi-Synthetic

    Thx alarmguy. I've been very pleased with my twin cam motors using V-Twin 20W-50 oils. I had no issues with my last 08 RK for 56,000 trouble free miles other than the pinching of the front ABS wire behind the nacelle which was under warranty. Since my 16 FLHTK is a wet head I chose to run...

    2016 HD FLHTK Limited Spectro Golden 25W-50 Semi-Synthetic

    The oil weigh in title is incorrect. 20W..... not 25W...... proof reading obviously neglected.....and my link I did the same thing for the OCI? Wow, have been using 20W-50 for YEARS! Is senility finally setting in?

    2016 HD FLHTK Limited Spectro Golden 25W-50 Semi-Synthetic

    I recently changed my engine oil after 2,375 miles and 13 months since the last OCI. Thank you covid-19...... for ruining my 2020 riding season. Also at the time I changed my primary oil and transmission fluid both with Spectro products. This 103 twin cam is a wonderful motor so far! No...

    Toyota Tacoma's: Sellers or buyers market?

    I've noticed on other Tacoma forums members are requesting private party values of their Tacoma's. For grins and giggles I sometimes go to KBB or NADA for private sales values in my zip code area. Both reference sites I mentioned also provide for comparison same year and model Tacoma's that are...

    Drum Brakes

    For 7 years until I started doing my own OCI and maintenance I took my vehicle to the dealership. The first time I rotated my tires and tried to remove my rear drums they were basically frozen on. Took plenty of Penetrating oil, beating with a hammer and the bolt method to remove the drums. A...

    How often do you change spark plugs?

    Changed my 2012 Toyota Tacoma 2.7L 4x4 SR5 spark plugs (DENSO SK20HR11) last month for the 1st time @ 98,500 miles. Owners Manual recommends @ 120,000mi. Funny, can't tell the difference performance wise from new to old plugs? Better piece of mind though.
