This is the reason that Carl's Cycle gave that they were phasing out the 685 and just doing the 705, b/c stock sleeves were negatively affected by honing.

I actually decided to wait and set aside enough money to just do the 705, for the price difference, I think it'll be worth it. In the mean time, I just ordered a wossner piston/ring kit, which is supposed to be substantially lighter than stock, which reportedly reduces vibes. I figured I might as well get the bike up and running and save money on gas each day.

On the 705 do you have to take the entire motor in to have the bottom end clearanced?

New HT Panniers!

I sprung for some HT Tetons.

Why did I wait so long?

No big trips planned..

So far they just go to work and back..

Plan to do some camping trips with friends next year. I was wishing I had them on the trips I took this past year.

Wow the Tetons are nice. I am on the fence about what I want to put on mine, I know for long range moto camping they are the way to go but the extra weight has me worried. Iam using a soft saddle bag(Revits) and they work OK but Iam sure dont carry as much as a hard box, anyway very nice.

I can tell you this. They are pretty light when empty. I don't even notice that they are on the bike.

I've been using some soft bags too, but not comfortable loading them up.


I was also using some Seahorse cases, but don't like the side opening so much.


Let's face it.. I had big box envy and just couldn't take it any longer..

Mod the stock muffler

I did this a couple of years ago and it is hanging in there as good as stock--it only sounds a little bit louder than stock too--a tiny bit deeper

It started out I was trying to kill Tweety, and I had already removed the center baffle from the can--Tweety was gone. then after the mod mentioned above, I saw that the rear fender was getting a lot of soot on it, and as my bike is a showpiece I decided to add a deflector to the exhaust outlet.

So it still seems kinda stock to the casual observer, the printing on it still says its stock anyway, it sounds a tiny bit deeper, and it lost about half of its weight, so it seems like a win-win. It cost me zero since I have a welder and did it in my garage.

Oh, and my favorite mod--the blue dot in the taillamp! Reduces aerodymanic drag, and increased my top speed 10%.

Oh man, I like that - cut the can in half - I don't have a welder but there is a good guy in town. Gotta find an old exhaust now cause I'm not ready to hack my stock pipe...

I painted my can silver grey midway through the season just to clean her up. Since then I have noticed that there are hot spots on the muffler as it has discoloured the paint at certain sections of the can. So at each burn mark I suspect there is a restriction thus heating that area up. I have a few stock cans here now, so I will cut one length ways in half to see exactly what's what. I'll post pics of the opened can if there is anything to look at afterwards....lol
If I can relieve that restriction maybe it will flow better and allow a few ponies to run harder?

Just a thought?
