Re: need help on how to install Brock's predator slip on in Toledo

thanks Cool ok, no loctite, no new gasket. no gotchas or insights I need to know ahead of time? just curious, how would 13 lb ft feel if one did not have a torque wrench. I have seen a lot of mechanics who do this by feel only ... always wondered how wise it was. .. especially with the oil drain plu...

Re: Considering 2018 H2 SX SE

I have the SE and don't have an issue with seat hardness, rider ergo s or comfort. I was lucky to wait a year and got a decent deal. (dumb luck really) go to American Family for best insurance rates.

Re: David from Mesa
