    To Seafoam my V6 XLT or not?

    Why did I always run 87 or why do I run 91? Well The reason for the switch is I did the math and I will spend on average around 60 extra a year. The first time I ran 91 it didnt have the hesitation off the line I would get every once in awhile while running 87. Also the first tank gave me 1...

    To Seafoam my V6 XLT or not?

    I think I may try it. I always ran 87 in my X but for about the past 2 months I run strictly 91, whats and extra 60 or so bucks a year. What do you think about half a bottle in the vacuum line and half in the tank? Maybe crank case later after i find where my oil leak is so i can fix it first.

    To Seafoam my V6 XLT or not?

    So the vaccum lines would probably not be a good idea? If you pour it in your gas will you still has smoke out of the tail pipe, whod want to drive through a whole tank of gasoline and smoke out the city lol?

    To Seafoam my V6 XLT or not?

    I have heard amazing things about the product as well, I just wonder if it could plug things up since it is removing carbon build up do you think it could get stuck somewhere on its way out...if that makes sense?? Also putting it into the crankcase could it possibly create and oil leak that was...

  30. D

    Why wouldnt this work???

    So edges use smaller rotors too??? I thought edge was the same as the explorer and regular rangers had the smaller ones, reason for having to get smaller rotors. What would you recommend doing? I just was hoping to buy some spindles that just bolt right on with no changes except maybe longer...
  31. D

    Why wouldnt this work???

    Hmmm... I thought about it but I think it would just be cheaper to by edge spindles since the rotors are the same size. The same ebay seller has this item...

    Zero Motorcycles. Cool Electric Bike!

    Ive seen people testing these where I live and they are a cool concept but its so weird to see those things zoom by making no noise at all. I dont know but in my opinion they would be awesome for urban environments but I love the sound and smell of 2 stroke
