    UFO Exhaust tip size?

    I have UFO with 4 megaphones. It seems a bit loud with the 2 1/2" tips. If I switch to the 1 1/2" tips would it make any difference in jetting or performance?

    Hot tip, or "How To Keep Your VMax From Starting On Fire".

    I took the plate that previously held the coils (I've got COPS now) off to put the battery back in the bike. Stupidly, I misplaced one of the 6mm bolts that hold the plate in place, and after tightening the remaining bolt down well with a 10mm socket, promptly forgot about it. I'm riding to...

    This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator

    While this tip would be most effective for those who don't park their car in garage, it still could be effective for cars parked in garage, as alarm would still be heard in driveway, although it would not be as loud. Put your car keys beside your bed at night. Tell your spouse, your...
