  1. Compare the tires' profile to new ones. If the crown is worn down, it will make it less willing to lean. Sounds like time for new ones if they're down to the wear bars. I would see how it responds with new tires before drawing any conclusions.
  2. Makes me want to subscribe for the nostalgia of it and before they're all gone.
  3. Is the 'sealant' something someone added? I can't recall seeing anything like that previously.
  4. The nut on those K&N filters damn near killed a 6th gen owner on here and came close to doing so to a friend of mine who owned a 5th gen. Both cracked at the nut and soaked the rear tire while they were going down the road at speed. I know that in at least the 2nd instance the nut was not used for installation. Both were very lucky. Maybe K&N has changed them since - I have no data on that. But having seen it twice I'm not willing to gamble my life on it.
  5. And go to Roadster Cycle and get an 020 or 847 RR to be done with it.
  6. There's a guide in the tech section on replacing them. The PITA part is getting to them. From there it's easy. It can be done with the tank on but is tight access. Be careful of the washers on the small bolt that's removed to insert the key. It's aluminum and if you drop the one on the front cylinders it will go down in the engine's "V". It well be very difficult to fish it out. If not replaced there will be a leak. It seemed intimidating at first, but anyone can replace them with basic hand tools. I made a key with some scrap stock laying around using a Dremel with a cutoff wheel and a file.
  7. That's amazing. In a blindfold test I'm not sure I could tell the difference.
  8. What is the problem? And yes, photos please.
  9. Just thinking out loud - you might be able to sell your DMr units to another owner to recoup some of the cost of swapping forks. Maybe try that before deciding on something. My 4th gen would have benefited more from a fork upgrade than my 6th gen did.
  10. For me the other memorable line from that movie (not as good as the above tho) is when he's at the wheel of the 928, looks in the mirror at the Cadillac land-barge, then over at the girl and says "I think I can take him!". Hmmm . . . let's see, Porsche 928 vs 4 ton Cadillac with sofa cushion suspension . . . ya think???
  11. Are these ABS or standard? (ABS compatible will have one rotor with 3 small drilled and tapped holes interspersed between the 6 mounting holes to mount the ABS pulse generator ring). Otherwise they are identical to and also fit standard models.
  12. Looks great. I'm curious how the LCD pods are mounted and connect to the circuit board. Maybe with screws and the connection with the row of pins across the bottom? Also, what LED's were used and where did you source them?
  13. If I were going to have a sports car, it would be an S2000. Any car that can turn 8,000+ rpm and has a manual gear box has got to be a blast to drive.
  14. I can't remember the last time I saw a 944. Great cars.
