Unlikely I get recruited to crew for anyone based on speed or skills - unless there are a lot of bottles to open.

I spent some time tidying wires yesterday - aux lights had a few extra yards of cable I didn't want. Thinking of a name for my electrics shop - 10 Stone Thumbs is in the lead. I added some techflex and most a roll of tape to reinforce 30 years if wear.

Cleaner now! I really do like the retro of these piaa 510s but know I should change out to a more modern led for power savings...

OEM is underwhelming. I'm building a list of long run things, it's not at the top but makes it....

All done - mostly...

New boots and test of low fit fender



Extra hands were helpful for cable route / bar mount



Ready to go - except I missed a connection somewhere along the way for my volt meter. Going to take it out for a quick bounce later this week then loosen and re-torque to finish.

What's the extra nut supposed to be for? Normally you just have one squeezing the split washer and then the nut/plate with the nut facing out.

The extra nut is oversized (doesn't thread to bolt, slip on) and machined to float on the washer. I got the first kit in the 'new style' but the tube was a bit short. Dan is sending me the fix. Single nut will not bite with new pieces.



Old style

It was an easy find on the voltmeter hot wire - I 'cleaned up' the connection so knew where to look. Got it all back together (the third time as brass expanding insert popped out on last turn of second time) and noted I'd installed the headlamp inverted. Fourth time was a charm....

I don't believe this is what the manual intends as 'gently to the right'



Everything 'looks good to me' didn't want to whack the fastener nut with my drift too much harder. Will take another go at it with better tool soon.

Which reminds me...

Not sure on proper translated names for each piece listed in the torque section of the manual. I know the cap nut was 120nm but believed the 36mm bolts on either side (into the tubes, through 5,6 & 3) were listed at 120nm as well - that correct?

Just a follow up:

Dan sent me modified new and improved version of pipe in longer length. Haven't tried it yet.

Old and inadequate on the left:

I solved the 'height issue' for races by repurposing an appropriately sized eye screw with a hack saw. This gave the tension nut the required clearance over the space tube to extract the race.

In a fantastic demonstration of slow thinking confusion, the first race took 90 minutes to extract with the second taking 9.

EZ pleazy



Factory version locked itself up before the job was done - bottomed out against the too tall two nut stack (or space tube to short)



The washer is split and must be squeezed with pressure to splay out and grab the race. Custom
