69k miles!! Congrats dude! How's it sound inside that motor?
I put it in between the guard and the cooler- no problem with heat and no zip ties necessary. Cut it in a 'T' shape so the crossbar of the T keeps it from dropping out the bottom. (I now have the 'premium' model - a piece of an old plastic trash can cut in a T shape. Very classy, not just an old piece of cardboard. Gets lots of compliments at our club Saturday breakfasts. )

69 K miles, it runs great. no noticeable loss of power, no oil burning, no new noises. Great motor.

I'd be more worried about high temps than low.

I scoured the Suzuki manual and they have no mention of any other oil than 10w40. regardless of temps.
I wonder if most moto mfrs account for some of us riding all over in winter conditions though.

What Shu said.

The Prototype:


It's cold and I'm not riding, so, for a limited time only, you get free dimensions. Trim the top to be more pritty.

It's like 50 degrees here today. I had to turn my heated vest up half way.

The Connecticut Version II will necessitate a rather large price increase. I'll have to write up detailed installation instructions.

The DR CDI does not need a battery at all to run as spark is completely independent of the charging system. However if the battery is too weak to spin the engine over fast enough the magneto may not generate enough energy to fire.
