Don't you just slide right off that seat?

That is too funny. I doused it in Pledge and am letting it soak in overnight to get it back to black. It really makes a huge difference - especially on the controls and black/red bits.

The white bike with the red tank is my '99 that I've had for awhile, but the one behind it is a really fresh '06 I just picked up. The white one has served me well. I'm trying to prep it for it's new owner.

Can you guys start rattling off the usual suspects?

I've been unplugging stuff and plugging it back in, but when I check the coil, got no voltage across the 2 wires.

HELP - I'M STARTING TO STRESS OUT!!!!!

RZ Rob
Calm down, back away from the bike, it just ain't happen! We are here to help.
Kill switch, recently mine has been f__ken up.
CDI, I always carry a spare. Techforlife can rebuild these. But it will cost you your shirt!
Side stand safety switch. all the safties can be delt with at the wire junction under the seat.

I was hoping you'd say that, because that's where it is on the PC4 and it left a mark where the clamp was, that you'd see if I moved the clamp forward.

RZ Rob, if you can run a Dremel and solder you can fix your CDI. Follow Tech's directions (don't know where they are), and be patient. Then order another one from Service or somebody. There are fairly reasonable. $100 or so.

With way less weight hanging past the fulcrum it's just much stronger that way. Those mufflers ain't light that's for sure. I tried to buy a titanium/carbon set-up to get my L under 250lbs, but couldn't find one

Thanks, that problem was this afternoon and with so many indicators pointing at CDI, I went and gave it a tap and viola, I got spark.

Installing the PBI countershaft sprocket requires light to mild impacts from a hand held impact device during the first installation. At subsequent servicing the sprocket can be reinstalled without special tools.

WooHoo! New Tires!

Finally got a chance to get the old Avon's off and put my TR8 Battle Rally tires on the pig! No time to ride yet, but I can't wait to try these things out!

I have been well pleased and very satisfied with the improvement in post quality and especially with the performance of the MS Word spell check tool.

Okay... either Fritz has had TOO MUCH to drink, or TOO LITTLE... I can't tell which.

Thanks for the video.. Looks cold! I rode to work the other day.. 6:30am.. 27 degrees.. 30 min ride.. No heated grips.. Not fun! But the 55 degree afternoon ride home made up for it!

What setup is that over your handlebars? Is that the manrack-headlight-brush guard/rack (can't remember right name)? What's the bag?
