If you ride with a lot of keys on rough terrain, it'll tear up the key and/or lock, and the key may eventually fall right out.

A key ring like this, silly old belt loop style keychain, is helpfull in preventing a lost set of keys, and always carry a spare key. The same holds true for your car or truck. A big heavy set of keys swinging around all day will wear the lock.

Looking for big boy springs front and rear. If any of you guys have a set you are thinking of parting with I needem. I am north of 230. Sometimes I am way north . It is downright scary bottoming out all the time.....

I have not trimmed the front fender since I put the fork brace on. I assume that I have to trim the fender to clear the brace, second is how much. I am heading to the H Depot to pick up a plastic cutting bit for the dremel.

I have a Eibach 12.5 spring available.

Why are you cutting the fender? I haven't had to.

How much are looking for it? I may have to sweet talk Mike B into bringing it back for me.

I just figure that when the suspension fully collapsed that there would be contact.

Make sure your oil is fresh. Pull the spring and try to compress the shock. If its too easy, and that's somewhat subjective, then the oil needs replaced. If you want to do it yourself, I have a PDF that explains it. And I've done two of them. It's not hard.

I enjoy the tank bags on my clark. With the windshield n paners off I can take this thing through tight woods with out noticing the bags much. I can carry a big fountain drink in one or both.

Manracks tie down points. just need to elongate the elongated hole a lil bit more and put em on the top clamp





While I got the risers to work with the stock length cables they are a lil tight and I might wind up getting longer. Not bad for the clutch because I wanted to replace that anyway. but I just replaced the throttle cables





Brake hose clamping point is different. not sure what Im going to do yet. Anyone????





Thats it for now

What risers are those? Link please?

For the brake line you definitely want to run it on the inside of the fork leg. Zeta makes a sweet brake line holder anodized red for $16 bux at Wheeling Cycle Supply. It will work for both braided lines and larger OEM lines depending on how you mount it.
