Re: What's your thoughts on the GY Forteras?

Since I've had both the stock Fortera's and now Michelin M/S2's here's my opinion:

Excellent comments and understanding Frango. Thanks.

Now, here's perhaps a bigger question. Let's say you choose to use whatever oil you want (within reason). Now we all know that an engine...

Re: Clarify oil weight/viscosity

I agree with you on sticking to what the owners manual/oil cap says (5w30)

Re: Easy fix for "blinding" too bright headlight indicator
