    :lol3 This was before I moved here and subjected to regular bonus loop acclimation. The ride was relatively easy except for a short muddy section that gave me a little bit of trouble. Other than that, it was fun.

    But now that I live here, :whipthe beatings have commenced.

    Are new orings recommended when doing an oil change or can they be reused?

    The 4R is white- I'm having a very hard time coming up with the correct part number for the wheel- so far I have found 3 wheels, all are completely different- yet show the same part number????- one of which does look like my wheel.:scratch

    I would confirm it with the Toyota dealer where you bought. Then search for price if they can't match what you found. The dealer near me is good like that. I bring in prices of stuff from other dealerships websites and they confirm the part number for me but can never match it. :dunno

    Great post @cyberdos, I have a broken one the 'tinker' bike and I didn't realize it was a stud that could be replaced. Any tricks to getting the old one out? I'm pretty sure I have enough left to get a pair of vise grips on it.

    What mud? :dunno

    You're right about the rest of it. BDR's are mostly big bike friendly.

    It's easy. Heat the area up a little bit because it's loctited on then vice grips will do fine. Red loctite it back on.

    pic of the broken one on the way out:
