Yeah, those would be much better with just a hose tail instead of the QR at that point as the tap area is prone to damage from flying rocks. I good solid chunk of aluminium with a hose tail tucked out the way, hose running under the battery to a quick release would be the best way to go.

I am thinking about making a set.

After getting my new bike, the first tip I got, was to protect those taps with a piece of plastic - never did though. Maybe a reserve tap in the tool pouch..

Is that your livingroom, or do you have a tv in the garage?

Fired it up after looking over the carbs and some other problem.

Started like a champ!

Still some work before it can be ridden but getting closer but there is still lots of snow around and ice on the roads here and there.

I am in the process of adding a 55W HID hi/lo and LED flood lights. I welded sturdy tabs on the front of my nerf bars for the flood lights. As with any electrical project, the most time consuming part is doing tidy wiring.

I provided power to both sets of lights directly from the 15A fused and switched connection used for lights. I wanted independent on/off for either light, and an indicator light for each light. While I was at it, I added another switch to dim the indicator lights.

Went from this:


To this:


Here's the dash with all lights off:


With indicator LEDs on daytime brightness:


LED Dimmer engaged:


The LEDs and 10A switches are from Highway Dirt Bikes. As received, the LEDs are painfully bright. I added another 1k resistor to dim it for the daytime setting. The nighttime setting uses a 22k resistor.

The switch over by the 12V outlet is my ABS disable.

Sold mine...

Sadly, after 9 years and 50,000km's of pure joy, I had to let mine go to greener pastures and a happy new owner. I am going to miss you my friend, please think of me on your new adventures.

Man and machine.... I listened to an interview of a scientist who just finished submitting his research. He was able to show when we use a tool, a machine,...long enough, our brain creates new circuits for that particularal tool and make it as if it was an extension of our body like an arm!

Let it go, it is nothing more than nuts and bolts and rubber. Its your creation. You are not losing that ability and can never sell it. Just dont lose it.
