Warrior Of The Year 2016 Winner!! - MMFB
Mar 06, 2017 - 5:01 PM - by sangathor
The winner of our 6th annual Warrior of the Year is MMFB!

It was another very close race this year, but MMFB (Mark) won with 13 votes. Not only is Mark an active and helpful member of our little tribe here on the forum but he has a wicked Warrior well deserved of the title of Warrior of the Year. It's hard to believe that his Warrior is his very first motorcycle. In his first post from 5 years ago (see below) you'll see how he even started modding it before he even rode it! The mod bug strikes early around here. He eventually would teach himself how to and then eventually make his own turbo setup without buying a prefabbed kit!

For winning Warrior of the Year, Mark was going to get a $100 gift card donated by the site owners Vertical Scope. But he PM'd me and requested that his winnings be sent to our runner-up, Milkman (Monty) as he thought Monty could use it in the Ukraine with his limited resources more than he could. How's that for showing the true essence of brotherhood that makes this site the awesome place that it is!!


Congrats brother!

I brought my new ride home this evening. This is my first bike. Always wanted to have one and now I've finally done it. I've only ridden a few times and I'm planning on taking the ABATE course as soon as it's available. I've already started to mod the bike and I haven't even ridden it yet. It is an '06, red with Vance and Hines Big Shot, Fi2000, aftermarket handlebars, etc. It's in really good shape. I'll have to post pictures soon.

Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?
Mar 01, 2017 - 4:41 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Dear MOby,

I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I donít ride that much?

Thank you

PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

When Will My Motorcycle Battery Die?
Feb 22, 2017 - 3:52 PM - by Motorcycle.com

It depends where the bike lives: Hot and cold climates are both harder on batteries than temperate climes, and bikes that get ridden regularly are easier on batteries than ones that sit for months Ė though a good battery tender with a float feature negates much of that. In fact, I was bragging about the Shorai lithium-iron battery in my bike not long ago, which must be seven years old now and has never seen a charger, when my friend Jim said big deal, the original equipment sealed AGM battery in his VFR lasted 9.5 years, and his 21-year old Ducati is only on its second battery. So, sealed batteries can last a long time especially if youíre OCD about maintenance.

According to several sources including BatteryStuff.com, though, your 12.3-volt reading means your battery may be on its way to Nirvana; a fully charged one should read 12.7 volts or above. Since you like to play with your voltmeter, there are instructions to ďstress testĒ your battery at the same page, along with a lot of other battery tidbits that will let you know for certain if itís time to replace.

Send your moto questions to AskMOAnything@motorcycle.com. If we donít know the answer, we know who does, and if they donít know weíll make up something reasonable-sounding. What do you want for free?
