Hows the instrument panel holding up on these test flights? The head light looks to be adequate.

With my recent obsession with old Honda CB's I've not poked my head in here for a while (still have the L but it's feeling neglected). Too many posts to look at them all (many, many from one person) but this thread has damn near come off the rails. People getting put on ignore and banned. Looks like ONandOFF has the right stuff to straighten y'all out though.

I was wondering about that the other day when you guys have ship time. Figured it was probably similar to desert time for us. Always a drag, but just one more thing we look forward to getting back that much more, eh?

Not going to go into a full list of what I've had lately, but yeah, there's plenty of good stuff in it, including some Westvleteren. This assignment runs until 2015 - let me know if you end up over this way before then! Offer stands for you other beer lovers as well.

So nobody has installed a trail tech on there xrl? I got the directions Spud but this part isn't making sense with the tiny ass parts they gave me. That's why I'm looking for first hand experience

The installation is the same regardless of the bike.
You need to expermint with magnet and pick up placement to find a location that is durable and has some degree of adjustment. Then fabricate the necessary mounts for the pick up and to route it's cable.

As I stated you can buy a proper rotor mount bolt with magnet in it's head from any number of sources OR glue the magnet to the rotor. OR you can drill a hole in your rotor and mount the magnet to the rotor with a screw.

I chose the bolt as I did not want to modifiy the rotors at time of repalcement.

now i remember. i had cr forks on the xrl and used the pinch bolt for the axle to mount a piece of metal to mount the sensor. i used a piece of 1/8 inch by 1/2 inch flat metal and ran it from the pinch bolt up to a good place above the axle and twisted it for the right angle for the gap it needed between the sensor and magnet i jbwelded on the rotor.

Note the photograph on the left.

Have you contacted them to see if you can order a magnetic rotor bolt?

Not yet. It was supposed to be "vehicle specific" with all parts included. It came with two different style magnets was hoping to get one of those to work like the directions say

Thanks John; I wish it were true. I can't even get myself straight, much less this bunch. But I am disappointed when people decide to take things the wrong way and try to escalate disagreements. Thinking differently is what makes us who we are. What's right for one and what's right for another may be quite different - but at least we ought to be able to put them out on the table for civil discussion, rather than personal criticism. Yeah, we get out of kilter, but by and large, this is a great group.

But yeah I can't keep up with the thread either. And if I get the chance to try to catch up, there's a ton of ideas I find interesting and feel like adding to. Soon we'll be able to get out more and get riding fixes instead of dreaming about riding while sitting in front of a screen.

"issues." Yeah. We know.

Here's another vid from the weekend before. Low also. I just flipped up the camera last night. Tomorrow should be GTG.
