As many people have mentioned on here before, there is no way to bump start a DCT. Time to get a portable charger and start carrying it. Sometimes I really miss having a clutch... sometimes.

Sometimes the most obvious problem is the one most easily overlooked. Bad cell in the battery. Holds enough juice to light everything up, not enough to start. It's the first battery I've had to...

I've ridden these for years. Hands down my favorite tire. Good price, great traction, and even better wear. They are difficult to mount because of the sidewall rigidity, but you cant find a better...

Has anyone tried the A'ME Heated Chicane Grips? They look really comfortable, but I'm not sure of the size and fit. I emailed a seller, but no response yet. Does anyone have any information? Cheers.
