Seasonal temperature change can dramatically alter tire pressure, which can cause the tire pressure warning lamp to illuminate. Tire temperature is dependent on”cold”tire pressure, driving distance and speed, ambient temperature and road surface temperature. As the temperature of the tire changes, air in the tire expands and contr acts, changing the tire’sairpressure. The cold tire pressure for all Toyota models will vary and will need to be adjusted accordingly. “Cold”tire pressure, as shown on the tire pressure label on our vehicles, is generally considered to be the pressure in a tire that has not been driven in the past 4 hours and has been parked outdoors. The TPWS MUST be initialized with the tire pressure marked on the vehicle placard. Tires are then adjusted according to the information in this bulletin to ensure that the TPWS light does not illuminate unnecessarily.

pressure data is transmitted through a Tire Pressure Warning System antenna to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System receiver. The tire pressure sensing transmitter used for the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) on 2004 – 2006 model year 4Runner vehicles needs to be activated during Pre-Delivery Service (PDS). 2004 – 2006 model year 4Runner vehicles. NOTE: After all the tire pressure sensing transmitters are activated, the flashing Low Tire Pressure Warning Light goes OFF. The Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) listed below may be stored in the system until the tire pressure sensing transmitters are activated. The codes will automatically clear when the tire pressure sensing transmitters are activated

You want a big cruiser but you don’t need a large 1500 cc behemoth that weighs close to half-a-ton fully loaded. You want something you can cruise down the boulevard on but you want to be able to handle a corner or two. You want classic styling but you insist on reliability as well. If these are your guidelines, then Honda and Yamaha might have what you’re looking for in the guise of the Honda Shadow American Classic Edition and Yamaha V-Star 1100. Shadow ACE 1100 The ACE and V-Star have a few things in common: Both sport requisite V-twin powerplants (75° for the V-Star and 45° for the ACE) and both possess typical Japanese refinement. Aside from these similarities, the two rides are very different machines. While both machines are shaft driven, the ACE uses the shaft housing as the swingarm. Although this arrangement is effective, it’s a bit lacking style-wise. However, the whitewall tires and the classic fenders and tank help to create a traditional design that turns heads when you’re out and about. The V-Star uses a different approach, utilizing a pivoting sub-frame design with a hidden mono-shock that keeps the lines fluid and consistent with the rest of the bike. Although this beast isn’t equipped with whitewall tires, it still cuts a graceful, glittering profile. The only flaw we noticed was the small headlight that

tracking Any parting within the tread, sidewall, or inner liner of the tire extending to cord material. CT A pneumatic tire with an inverted flange tire and rim system in which the rim is designed with rim flanges pointed radially inward and the tire is designed to fit on the underside of the rim in a manner that encloses the rim flanges inside the air cavity of the tire. Curb weight The weight of a motor vehicle with standard equipment including the maximum capacity of fuel, oil, and coolant, and, if so equipped, air conditioning and additional weight optional engine. Extra load tire A tire designed to operate at higher loads and at higher inflation pressures than the corresponding standard tire. Groove The space between two adjacent tread ribs. Gross AxleWeight Rating The maximum weight that any axle can support, as published on the Certification /VIN label on the front left side of the trailer. Actual weight determined by weighing each axle on a public scale, with the trailer attached to the towing vehicle. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating The maximum weight of the fully loaded trailer, as published on the Certification /VIN label. Actual weight determined by weighing trailer on a public scale, without being attached to the towing vehicle. Hitch Weight The downward force exerted on the hitch ball by the trailer coupler. Innerliner The layer(s) forming the inside surface of a tubeless tire that contains the inflating medium within the tire. Innerliner separation The parting of the innerliner from cord material in the carcass. Intended outboard sidewall The sidewall that contains a white-wall, bears white lettering or bears manufacturer, brand, and/or model name molding that is higher or deeper than the same molding on the other sidewall of the tire or the outward facing sidewall of an asymmetrical tire that has a particular side that must always face outward when mounted on a vehicle. Light truck (LT) tire A tire designated by its manufacturer as primarily intended for use on lightweight trucks or multipurpose passenger vehicles. Load rating The maximum load that a tire is rated to carry fora given inflation pressure. Maximum load rating The load rating fora tire at the maximum permissible inflation pressure for that tire. Maximum permissible inflation pressure he maximum cold inflation pressure to which a tire maybe inflated.
-9- Maximum loaded vehicle weight The sum of curb weight, accessory weight, vehicle capacity weight, and production options weight. Measuring rim The rim on which a tire is fitted for physical dimension requirements.

Modify your factory light bar cover to fit on Yamaha brand driving/passing lights. Use a rotary tool to widen the fastening area of the lower backside clips on the cover. The total width between the clips should be 4 æ inches. Trim off º inch on both inside ends of the lower backside attachment clips. Trim the clips equally. The following picture shows a modified cover. Narrow the clips on both ends to fit over the welds on the bar. The cover will not attach to the bar if the width between the clips is too narrow. If the width is too wide the cover may slide sideways on the bar. Narrow both clips equally to center the cover over the welds on the lower edge of the bar. The top of the cover is modified to allow the cover to fit over the bolts on the light bar. The top edge of the cover is filed æ inch deep and 5/8 inch wide to fit over the bolts. The back top edge is filed or ground 1/8 inch to fit over the light bar fastening bracket. Use care when filing chrome covered plastic. The following picture will help to complete this step in the modification. Modify your factory light bar cover to fit on Yamaha brand driving/passing lights. The ends of the cover are modified to allow the cover to fit over the upward curved light bar. The upper openings on the ends of the cover that fit over the bar must be filed to enlarge the area. Grinding the cover ends will allow the cover to fit and clip onto the bar. The end openings are filed or ground at an angle to match the slope of the bar. This picture shows the outer end of the cover. The ends of this cover have been modified by enlarging the area on the upper edges to fit over the upward curving light bar. The ends must be enlarged 1/8 inch on the top edge. The cover edge can be slanted upward to match the curved bar. Modify the cover ends until it fits without the outer chrome cover touching the bar. Modify your factory light bar cover to fit on Yamaha brand driving/passing lights. Sometimes the modified light bar cover may touch the bottom of the headlight. Modify the cover, or adjust the bar or headlight if you notice the headlight touching the bar cover. This modification makes the V-Star motorcycle with Yamaha driving lights look better. The light bar bolts are covered and the chrome cover improves the appearance of the front of your bike. Other V-Star riders will notice how nice the front of your bike looks with the chrome light bar cover installed
