Too much serious talk on here today! Everyone should sit back and order up "Any Sunday" on Netflix, relax and enjoy one of the best movies ever made! I just did a "Any Sunday" marathon, well the two so far. Those guys amaze me! I think they would out ride today's riders if they had today's tech. back then! They're just fearless. Hats off to them all. The only part I thought was weak, was when the guy burned his bike in part 2 making a signal fire. The 1st one was a real mistake, but the 2nd one was a set up. Happy holidays guys!

Truth.

Those guys worried far less about "what bike"...they were true "riders"

+1, at 20,000+ miles. Very strange. Also replaced the copper bushing, which it really didn't need. I had replaced it once before, so thought it would need it again. It didn't. I'm also grateful to Indy for making these, but at this point I don't seem to need them.

610 gas cap key elimination

Some have already figured it out, most haven't. So here's how to eliminate that stupid-assed second key for the gas cap, and still have everything factory.


Take the gas cap off. Duh. Press down on the inner hub on the end and pop the stainless pin out.




A small screwdriver or knife point works well to get the pin started loose. Once you have it pushed through, by pressing down on the hub you should be able to shake the pin the rest of the way out.




The spring is fairly stiff, so ease the hub up as easily as you can. Stuff shouldn't go flying across the shop, but in case they do, there are only three parts on this side of the cap: The hub, the spring, and the rotating lugs. Take the hub, spring, and lugs off, flip the key cover open and press the tumbler shaft out toward the top of the cap.




You'll see a row of tabs sticking out of the side of the tumbler shaft. Grind them off.






When you put the tumbler shaft back in the cap body, mind the o-ring that is likely to stay in the cap body, and mind the rubber seal around the key entry point.




Reassemble in the reverse order of disassembly. When lining up the hub to replace the pin, mind the position of the key slot relative to the lugs inside the cap. It can be reassembled 90 degrees off and it won't move, so it'll be pretty easy to tell if you did it wrong. If so, no problem, just pull the pin and reposition the tumbler shaft and hub.




Your gas cap will now open and close with the ignition key, a screwdriver, a knife point, whatever you want to stick in the key slot. BUT it will still look like it requires a key.


Happy frakkin' Christmas.

I just made a vid with my Liquid Image Goggles (22min long) and I can't load to photo bucket ( too long ). I'm putting it on FB, but it's taking forever. Is there a better way to share a vid on here?

Is there a write up somewhere telling how to inspect these (washers/cups) to see if they are cracked or broken? Are they hard to replace?

22 minutes is long for any video to post online. Better off editing down to a 5 min vid (keep people attention better anyway), and make a series of 4.

You'll get it. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes addicting. Can't say whether the wife will think so too :)

I've been using the 720p LI goggles a couple years now. It's a quality unit with nice video. Seems a little more bouncy than the GoPros. Not sure why. Until Hugh gets his posted here is one I posted before from Mount Misery in CT on 1/1/2012. https://vimeo.com/album/1747178/video/34631576 I've heard the name comes from the poor bastards that tried to farm this area back in the old days.

Noticed a few talking about heavy clutch pull etc on the 610. Was scanning through ebay here in Aus and came across these things. I dont have one or know anything about them. Maybe worth a try, cheaper to experiment with than buying a rekluse, might work, might not. Not sure why they have them marked for honda, the clutch pull on the honda is like squeazing butter compared to the 610.

Looking forward to seeing some footage lunger.

here is a pic

Just went out and did this!

Thanks - hated to keep track of the gas key - left it home a couple of times.

Easy as pie - took 20 mins.

Thanks
