Re: Replacing Gas Tank

Anyone know if the exhaust has to be removed before dropping the gas tank, or can the gas tank be slidden out from under the exhaust without having to remove the exhaust?

My exhaust is still going strong after 14 years, and I really don't want to mess with it and cause leaks and problems.

Re: emergency brake too "loose"

We have a 2005 MT Vibe and there is no doubt that the Ebrake needs to be...tightened ie one needs to pull it way up to do its thing. What is involved in adjusting it? Either adjust the handle, or the rear brakes, if the cable isn't broken. https://web.archive.org/web/20111216103753/http://showdesig...
