I have a Rukka jacket that has a big D3O chest protector. It is easily removable, but I don't normally ride with it fitted as it feels a bit "too much". If course, I wouldn't be saying that after a...

Katy - I am in the UK and you can use any regular petrol. Personally, I would get a petrol can full of premium petrol and use that.

You should also charge the battery overnight before you try to...

Try blowing most of the dust out with a compressed air line first.

Then spray and wash with light detergent.

Should be sorted then, but if not try S100 colour refresher.

Quad Lock is great. I use the version for bicycling as it is super low profile and almost invisible when the phone isn't mounted. I just cable tie it to the bars. Have done tens of thousands of miles...

Yep - normal on a new pipe. Don't worry about it - but also don't breath in the fumes. If it's ceramic coated that shit can be really nasty.

If I can find Redline here I'll try some....but I can definitely say the Syn 3 was better than the Spectro in terms of sound and feel in my bike.

I have no idea who makes it, but it is a totally different system on my 2018 Fat Bob than the one that that was on my 2104 Fat Bob. Looks, feels and performs differently.

The Ends Cuoio bags are super nice and LeatherPros are also excellent.
