Only for the clean freaks.
I want those wheels
Just a few hours of nasty, dirty work and a handful of sore fingers will do the job.LOL
Jerry, what windshield is on your bike? I think, I remember seeing it in Hamburg, NY and cannot remember it had that windshield. Anyway I think you were there.
Yes Darrell, I was in New York. I have the medium height Power Bronze windshield and have been quite happy with it.
I like the stickers on the suitcases
Idea where I can buy it
You've been busy. How about a list of mods you've done to the bike?
On the subject of cleaning, what do you do to keep the exhaust headers bright and shiny?
The graphics on the suitcases are not stickers, I painted them on.
Some of the mods I have done are the Clearwater Darla lights, two of the Clearwater Billy brake lights, Illium bar risers, Nippy Norman front fender extension and rear fender hugger,medium height Power Bronze windshield, Tecspec tank pads, Mayer saddle, the painted graphics on the side cases, polished wheels, and most of the flat black trim,ie battery covers, fender extension, rear hugger,etc have been painted gloss black as it is easier to keep clean.
As to the exhaust headers; I just try to keep them real clean. Tre bike has 23 thousand miles. So far so good.
Could we see a picture of the back of your bike?
Wow. Thanks for posting. The way I treat my bike is shameful in comparison.
Not to detract from the esthetics of your efforts, I do have to pull together the summary....
(Geeez, without the photos, this reads like an X-rated dating site..., not that I'd know.)
Here is a pic of the back Lee. I forgot to mention the cheapest mod; the reflectors on the suitcases are
$3.88 for a pair at Pep Boys.
Looks good, never thought about adding two lights on the plate.
Debbie has mentioned several times the OEM taillight/brakelight is not very noticable and it's the Clearwater Billy light that catches your eye.
Do you plan to ignore the reflector recall for the side of the bag lids? Your lids look very nice as is.
Oh yeah...! That Vacavillian rear end is even better than my fantasies....
(I'm assuming you're from Vacaville (Cow Town).)
A lot of work.
I too like the Clearwater Billy's - looks like two juniors without the heat sink(?)
How did you end up handling the electronics through the CANopener? Can you program both independently, or are they run together through the CAN?
Yeah Lee, I have already thrown away the recall letter. Not wanting to add more clutter. I think I am pretty visible now. They can hit me but can’t say they didn’t see me.
You are correct ray2, no requirement for heat sink. Both Billy’s are run in series through the can sys.
I am in fact, from “Cowtown”. Got to be on west coast to win those long distance awards.
Your whole bike is a reflector.
Not wanting to sound too much like a lawyer (I am NOT), since you are from the home state of Melvin Belli, who transformed the concept of liability, I will point out that as I read the recall, it addresses side reflectors - you've removed your front fork reflectors and the the rear reflectors might not be sufficiently visible from the side to meet the DOT dictatum.
I knocked a few of the big dead bug carcasses off the front fairing before connecting the battery charger and pulling on the cover for the winter nap....... What a sad pathetic slacker.
Outstanding! I also want those wheels! You just rubbed the paint off?
