What do you think?


I think it's a wonderful piece of......

Reminds me of when I used to play with my Erector set when I was a kid.
Looks cool though, love the pipe...

I have been considering putting an exhaust together for the pig seeing I have more time than money and this bike came with a poorly fitting CZR + the stock headers have the worst factory bends "crushed" I have ever seen on a stock exhaust system.

Are these good header and pipe specs "pipe dimensions" for a mostly stock bike with just opened air intake, It looks to me size wise the easiest with stock bends would be 1.25" feeding into 1.75" I doubt it would be worth going larger with the stock motor. This thing is going to see mostly open road usage.

You live right in his neighborhood if you live on the west side of Patricia.

I never go to Quaker Steak...at least for the past few years...since the cops were there one night loading bikes on a flatbed with a crane for very stupid reasons...

You ever ride your L down by Hercules Ave? The past couple of weeks I've seen someone on one going down Hercules and turning onto Carroll Street.

If you suspect it may not be passing power reliably, one way to check it is to keep the test light on the load side and watch if it stays on.
Well I would have thought that would work to...and did for close to two damn years of sporadic starting. Even though I bought a CDI when it first acted up(since that's supposed to be the catch all fix with XRL's not starting)I'm usually not one to change out parts until I figure out which one is not working.
To say it's been frustrating is an understatement. I took it apart to the point where the four tabs kept me from taking it apart further. I probably sprayed two, three cans worth of brake cleaner, electric parts cleaner into that switch.
I did the test light and a multi-meter numerous times at the connection. Always checked out good.
Live and learn...

Thanks for leading the way, taking the switch apart, and sharing the information with us. It's nice to know one can disassemble that switch without destroying it! That switch causes a lot of electrical problems, and I just might clean my switch this winter, before the riding season begins.
