Re: 2018 EFI Balance

Re: Request: 2017 Rear caliper(s) piston bore dimension

Request: 2017 Rear caliper(s) piston bore dimension

I have an idea rolling around in my head and need to get some numbers...

Does anyone have a caliper off that they can measure - car and pusher if possible?

Mine is going to be away for some work for the week.

Re: 2018 EFI Balance

You may have a failed MAP sensor.

There are plastic snorkels for preventing moisture getting into the atmospheric port on the throttle body that can be bought or fitted under warranty.

Re: Mid Atlantic Back roads Discovery Routes

This video might have some 'cautionary shots' in it for riding the trail.
Honda Groms from NYC to the TAT start via the MABRDR. A chainsaw would've helped but there's some nasty tracks in the video.

Not really to be trusted - My dad did that with a Landrover Defender and lost it and one of the sheep dogs as a result.

This thread and the old ratcheting one has me thinking about pulling some self adjusting car calipers apart to see what makes them tick.
