Well, I'm about to go out and try to fix the centerstand. I'll report back with pics once it's done.

I also need to go into the headlight bucket and figure out how to get the headlight to NOT turn on in park mode. I think this may be affecting my morning startup, with the headlight drawing more power. I'm thinking at some point, I may upgrade to a Valeo starter for less weight and better starting. I have the wiring diagram in my Clymers, hopefully it won't be too difficult to track down.

I'm making a list of parts I'd like to get soon. These include:

Speedo Boot
Neutral Indicator Switch
Carb Sync Tool (Northwood Airheads)

Can you guys suggest best options for gloss black touchup paint for my frame? I see a variety at the auto supply, and curious if you guys have experience with particular brands that matched well.
Riding my airhead is like eating chinese food . . . an hour later, I need to ride again.
