More blue

Custom Blue Frame - 13' R1200GS LC

Long story short, someone pulled out in front of me and I T-boned into their car resulting in a cracked frame and a broken hand. Since I was getting a new frame I decided to have it powdercoated for...

Trigger finger

I did the same as above for my rigid D2's. Only thing is that the trigger stays on for about 30 seconds after the bike is turned off.

X2 on chopping the throttle in first. Once you get good at it you can shift into 2nd and 3rd. I haven't made it out of 3rd yet and probably don't want to. You could drop down to a 15 tooth front...

Hyperpro

I have the standard springs and filled mine to 1 inch below the cross drilled holes. This works good for me as I tried Clauses recommended oil height and I was able to bottom the springs out easy.

Baking

I've seen people bake their headlight housing at low temperature in an oven to separate the lens from the housing. This was for a headlight from a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Maybe it would work?
