Just an FYI, Tsukayu does have a 1 piece batwing. Their Boox line is a one piece (I think ABS) design.

I have their GPS batwing, which is a 2 piece design.

I went for the Harbor Freight Aluminum jack (as you can see in the picture) for the light weight and smaller footprint.

I talked to the owner of Ride-On, his theory is that if I had kept riding, the centrifugal force plus the heat would have continued to keep the tire plugged. He thinks I could have made it home (40...

I stop riding as soon as salt hits the ground. Then I start again after there is no more threat of salt, and the old salt has been washed off the roads with lots of rain.

If you have winter downtime, as part of your winter maintenance, I suggest pulling the wheel. You will want to clean off the moly paste from both the final drive and the wheel. You can then check...
