comment 08 f150 with vibration in the front driver side tire when turning left only.
Have you re torqued all the bolts since doing the work? Are your CV joints okay, if applicable? Have you had the tracking/alignment/camber checked by a shop with a laser?

Is it an aftermarket tacho? And is it digital or analogue?

comment Suzuki Access stops running during rains
Couldn't disagree more - unless it's under warranty, main dealers / showrooms exist almost solely to charge you lots of money. Take it to a trusted, local, mechanic who knows the scooter well.

comment Do I really need a lathe to turn my rotors?
In the UK, the idea of turning rotors (Or discs as we call them) is completely alien. People consider discs good for a couple of pad changes and then simply replace them completely.

comment 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix Fails to Start and Electronics Go Awry
"Weirdness" stinks of a battery failure, but we need more information. Have you attempted to jump or bump start the vehicle?

comment Is alternator rating at pulley rpm or engine rpm?
@NitroxDM Won't that only show current draw at that moment, rather than the maximum possible?

comment Is alternator rating at pulley rpm or engine rpm?
@mikes I always thought both were pretty curved and alternators came in for general efficiency etc.

comment Stubborn oil drain plug caused by hot oil?
@Xolstice You just need the answer to every stubborn bolt - a bigger bar and the correct socket. Don't kid yourself into thinking the shop will do anything different. I'd advise doing this while everything is cold, though.

comment Does idle RPM increase when there is heavy load on the electrical system?
I forgot to add, is that not a by product of the engine preventing a stall rather than trying to increase electrical output?

Ah, that's the interesting, thanks. The only things I've pushed very hard electrically are old non-FI engines, so it was all moot.
