Ah, good thinking. Maybe the Shiver bar would work. 1.5" + ~2" from the bar ends give me quite a bit more room.

I'll have to check that out.

Oil Drain Plug Replacement

Anybody running a Fumoto valve on their Dorso? I'm thinking of swapping one in and I'm not sure what size to get.

I see that Stahlbus makes one, but they're about twice the price.

Just to clarify... If we order an H4 right now, we'll get the $59 price, but the new H4 will be delivered when it's ready to ship? Do we need to do anything to specify the new bulb?

Your current H4 is such a huge improvement over the stock bulb. I can't wait to see how the new one performs.
