heres another summer update, enjoying life, summer.. went for 12hr drive went to vancouver and vancouver island enjoyed the ride there.., i have placed the urethane cushions on the rear as i was towing the bike so i wont sag as much as i am lowered with H&R springs,
i would have not bothered if it was like 2 hours only but this time i decide to put the ttc urethane cushions back.. it worked really well, if you are not towing anything, it feels like almost having a stiff rear sway bar, making you think you are driving a RWD suv... as it prevents to squat, acceleration feels better.. i replaced the dynomax super turbo as it has rotted.. same style but different brand, was cheap 150 for the exhaust and labor (Xlerator) seems to have better component.. tone did not change.. still have that nice growl over 3500 rpm but quiet at idle and cruising 120kph, the nitto motivo so far i have no complaints, i am at 90k km's now and it is hard to see the wear, i have 19x8.5 +35 with 255/50/19 tires, its really a quiet tire and very good in the rain.. anyway here..
if wondering why the sorento's paint is still mint (bought june 2011), just spray wax after wash, spray detailer in between.. and i used turtle Black box once a year...
if not black just use paint polish (meguiars ultimate polish) and wax (ultimate compund prior to).. keeps the paint from fading if have road debris grime etc. claybar will be best after a wash.. then the p[olish and compund.. once a year is ok..
