    Going to start riding my S on commute

    Riding on the street is far more risky than riding offroad. As a dirt rider, gone street, I highly reccomend that you take an MSF course or equivilant. I know you think that you know how to ride and all that, but trust me, if you learn one thing more than you currently know, it could end up being the one thing that saves your life.

    What do you do when a traffic signal won't change?

    It happens every once and a while and I just wait for it to be safe and run it. I have been pulled over for it on my street bike. Officer: Do you know why I pulled you over? Me: I ran that light at CVS. Officer: What are you in some kind of rush? Me: Well, I am on my way to work and don't have 20 minutes to sit at a light that won't change if that makes it a rush. Officer: What do you mean? Me: The light there won't change since it has a detector and this bike won't trip the sensor, so I waited a few minutes and no other cars came to help trigger the light, so I waited for it to be clear and made my turn. Officer: So you ran the red light is what you are telling me. Me: If you want to be technical, yes and man to man, I have to do it all of the time. Officer: You run reds all of the time? Me: Yes sir, I have no choice at times. It's not like I set out to do so maliciously or get off on it. Officer: I'll be back in a minute with your paper work. Me: Feel free, it is all clean. I'll just grab a seat on the kirb here. Officer: OK, since you live around here, I am going to let you off with a warning. Me: What would you rec'd that I do next time since as I stated before, this is a recurring issue for me. Officer: That's up to you. Me: OK thanks for the "break".

    Why should I replace my OEM 2 piece valves

    Is this going to be a problem with stock setups or just with modded motors?
