A little maintenance

Since Roxy was getting an oil change and lube, I went ahead and broke down for a brand new K&N filter for her. I know I know…

“But db, you can clean those out”


“K&N Filters get better as they get dirtier”…

So, yes, I’ve heard the arguements. But, there is something about seeing light from a flashlight actually coming out of a new filter then not. Besides, the one that came with my Typhoon system had about 42K miles sucking in soot from 2 fire seasons plus all the dust and dirt the IE can produce. So I figured better safe than sorry. It cost more than a cleaning kit ($60 vs. about $20), but since she is my daily driver, and is getting up there in miles (79,300), I figured why not.

Besides, it might help the idle when the A/C is on. I’ll post back tomorrow.

Also, something new and exciting that has happened in a while to me. Driving around on Saturday and the DSC and Flat Tire lights came on. Neither would turn off using switches and reset procedures. They both did after 4 restarts. Now I’m going to have to get it in again and see what tripped them. Unless any of you have ideas?

  1. I’ve had this happen to me twice, the first time it took a bunch of resets to get the lights off, the second time they never went off. It cost Brecht’s two new ABS units (though I think they replaced that because they couldn’t work out what smaller part to fix). Good luck.
