  in Canada we call it Nufi screech,   USA call it white lightning

 The one you can buy from manufacturer is Everclear. Sight returns faster than strained Sterno (or Canned Heat...the Band named themselves after this) . We be "Goin' Up The Country"

Battery problems after year one. Replaced it twice...second time with more powerful/stronger battery. No issues other than that and no problems with that.

is a good thing. What i`m wondering about the 400 s is, with the extra horsepower, will weight gain negate the extra HP.
In other words, will a lighter weight 300cc fi scoot perform just as well as the heavier 400 s?.

As far as I've read the 400 is "ABOUT" the same power rating as the Xciting 500 due to weight/engine design.

I have heard from a few Kymco dealers that the Xciting 400i and the Xtown 300i will, in fact, be coming to the U.S.

Some of this helps too

anti monkey butt powder!  Yes, its a thing.

This is what I use on my DT. Works great, folds small into it's pouch, and stores easily. Also, keeps seat dry in light showers.

What did you put?

Don't recall right now. Dealer did it as the one they replaced kept failing, so they upgraded it for free. not home, now.

A couple years ago an independent (ie: leave out the Middle Man/Dealers and sell wares privately by roadside stand) fisherman went over one of Maine's famous pot holes and dumped his load. Could not sell them after due to laws/regulations and encouraged all of us who witnessed to grab what we could/wanted, as it would become an insurance claim for him anyway.

My bike has a 48 liter top case , two full-sized saddle bags with cooler bags inside (waterproof storage) . Holds a lot !

His load.........Fresh Maine lobsters ! Had steamed lobster, lobster rolls, lobster stew, etc. for a long time (freezes well).

Downtown 300 / Re: Shorter Reach Brake Levers

Has anyone found an aftermarket brake lever that is closer to the grip? I have a 2013 Downtown and I find the OEM levers in the closest adjusted position still a stretch to reach. If so, could you provide make and model. Thanks much.

You know that the brake levers on the Downtown are adjustable, right?

Look at various sites ( Bike Bandit, Motorcycle Superstore, etc. ) . Buy a heavy duty Cruiser cover ( for Harley's and so forth). That's what I use in People S 205 and Downtown 300i. They are large enough to cover over muffler and even brake rotors and are heavy, waterproof, circulation (air pockets) , etc.

Reflector (where it is positioned) keeps majority of bags away from sides/paint. Just position the bag where it works best on those bags. I removed connector flap on bags and secured the zip-off portion where I wanted it, then zipped bags in place.

Putting sheepskin, blankets, etc. on the bike will only collect dust and create more scratching.

I use regular leather bags and use a steel tie wrap to secure them to the passenger handrails. The side blinkers keep them off the side of the bike... no contact.
