    Do these bikes eat batteries ?

    Mine is an 06 and I'm on the original battery.

    WR450 oil recommendation

    After doing a bunch of research I settled on Shell Rotella T. I used to use Bel-Ray in all my bikes but the price has gone up a lot in the last five years so a switch was in order. Even though the WR doesn't take much oil I use the Rotella T in all my toys to make things easier.

    Shoei or Arai?

    If you have a $5 head wear a $5 helmet.

    Shoei or Arai?

    I agree they are both top of the line, just pick one that fits you the best.

    Sidi Crossfire SRS -OR- Gaerne SG10

    I love my SIDIs. They are one of the best purchases I've made.

    Sidi Crossfire SRS -OR- Gaerne SG10

    I have this same boot in the same color. Good deal for a super boot, I can't believe how comfortable mine are from the very first time I put them on.

    Buttery Oil Frame Bolt Busted

    Start out with a smaller easy out that way you can always go up in size. I would soak the bolt for a couple hours with PB Blaster or liquid wrench. If there is no tension on it it should come out with a punch . If any of you don't have a Starrett snap punch thay are the cat's ass.

    Another Oil Change Question

    When I changed my oil a couple weeks ago I took off the skid plate because the motor needed a complete cleaning. I forgot that I was going to machine out a larger opening to get to this drain bolt. A lot of oil doesn't come out of here but I think it's a good idea to remove it anyway.

    Am I asking too much for this bike?

    I think $2500 is slightly high but it all depends on how it looks.

    does anybody

    I would say your friend is not too bright. Two totally different lubricants. An air filter doesn't do a very good job of stopping the dirt particles without the oil and chain lube doesn't have the viscosity to do the job.

    Interesting classified ad..

    I thought it was funny.
  14. I have both and enjoy both. Quads are better for hauling the kids but the bikes are faster.
