Is the dead squirrel your attempt at a new type of chain roller?

I think that was his way of checking who actually looked at the picture. I didn't even notice until you pointed it out!

Edit: I have had several Rochefort 8's, a 10, a Delirium Tremens, and a few fingers of Caol Ila this evening...

Helmets

With all the talk here about helmets recently, and my needing to upgrade my DS helmet, I started looking around yesterday and found something that looked interesting at Cycle Gear. Went to look at my local store yesterday and of course they didn't have my size, but did in Tampa. So, this afternoon, I rode over there to check it out. The helmet is their brand (Bilt [as built in China]), but tried it on anyway. Not really fond of buying outside the USA, but that is almost impossible today...The model of this helmet is ADVH1 and is called the "Explorer"...comes in a couple of colors, but I settled on matt black. Fit runs a little small, so ended up getting one size larger than I normally wear. This helmet had a retail price of 199.99, but is on sale the month of March for 99.99. The real selling point for me was that I was able to get my glasses on without any problems, and it has a flip down darkened half shield behind the full faced shield. Rode home with it, and for a Chinese helmet, I was pretty impressed. Below are some pictures.



This shows the flip down darkened shield



This picture shows the slide which is used to lower the darker shield. To raise the shield, you only have to push the button.



And it has plenty of vents.



As I said, so far I'm pretty pleased with it, especially for the price.

Very nice, Steve! What are the chances of flipping that bracket to put the cable ends closer? Would it get in the way of the idle adjustment? Then would a little fabbing to be able to use the stock cables be worth it?

I've been spending money at McMaster over the last few weeks. I have bags of fasteners. If anyone is missing any, or wanting to change stuff around, check here. I'm certain I won't use a 100 M6x18 socket cap screws, but I'll sure as hell try.

I'll get a parts list up for anyone that needs stuff or PM me.

I found the spacer/washer for the taillight screws there, a dollar more than OEM but I don't have any dealers for an hour of me, and I was placing an order anyway....

Gonna have to play with the mixture screw. No popping or farting on deceleration. Perhaps a sign it's to rich.

To be continued.
I think if you get no farting on decel you're too rich. My Dave's modded stock L farted on decel and I think it was jetted really well. Hell, all the race bikes/cars do it. Not sure what that decel farting is all about, but it doens't bother me. The VERY lean stock set-up did it too.

Now, I'm heading out to the shop to practice my Phillips screwing technique.

No vibration at all...of course I have that high fairing that funnels most of the air over my head, but think it's well enough built that it would not be a problem.

OnandOff,

No the bracket will not flip around as the cables will no longer be in alignment.

Farting = backfire?

Since the case had seen one fall, has a hole in it , and the saver is a "patch", I really didn't care. If your theroy is correct, the hole for the timming marks, crank bolt, and the holes that hold the case in place are a problem. I think drilled holes if spread out pose no problem. What do ya'll think?

Safety wire has a very important role to play in the succesfull operation of a modern motorcycle and that is " IT LOOKS BAD ASS". Don't ya think?

More squirel photos. I went out for a morning ride and hit a swarm of the grey bastards:







The photos above are, what i call a two beer project.
The squirel was murdered by my F150 pick up. Apparently the varmit was in the engine bay during start up. I think he took a fan blade upside the head. He fell out this morning. The rest can be blamed on the beer.
