  1. Officially 100K miles or ten years, get it changed at 50K miles.
  2. OK. Stationary, with the engine hot, put in neutral and rev the engine, hold it at 2500 rpm. If you hear a knock throttle off, the bottom end is worn. If no knock the oil pump is worn assuming you have the correct grade of oil in it.
  3. What does wifey call a large puddle and at what speed?
  4. Depending on how many miles this beauty has done either the oil pump is worn or the big ends.
  5. First thing check under the seat for any loose or damaged wiring. Next try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes to reset the GEM module.
  6. Disconnect the new speakers and see if it works OK. If not you may have disturbed something else.
  7. Ride will be as the shocks are now, the ride will get softer as they wear out.
  8. lock

    Just give it a squirt with spray grease.
  9. cooling fan

    Could be the engine temperature sensor has failed.
  10. Sounds like they don't know what they are doing, an engine flush won't cure worn or damaged parts. Pay for the oil & filter but no more.
  11. When was it last serviced and by whom?
  12. According to the manual I found its the yellow wire, should be marked rear view camera.
  13. Assuming you have a multi-meter, check for power at the fuse then work your way along the loom to the radio. Also check you have a good earth from the radio to the chassis.
  14. What brand/type is the stereo you have fitted?
