They just have the Omega alternator - I'm talking about the electronic ignition set up. Unless I am totally blind.

Cheap Trick #114 Handlebar raising on an RS

Raising the handlebars are always a topic of conversation amongst RS riders. I was cleaning up the garage and found some old 20mm (3/4") bar risers from my strom. They are cheapies from Ballards for about $20.


Wont hurt to give it a go and they fit straight on. Only parts needed to source are 2 cap screws at 8mm x 80mm, and 2 cap screws at 8mm x 90 or 100 mm. Longer cap screws go in the front holes. The handlebar cap are off a vstrom.



All back togeather with rubber pad back in place. Had to adjust the brake lever down a little. So not to hit the fairing on full lock.

The OMEGA ignitions have finally "found a new home" and will be distributed through FKN Enterprises in Toronto: http://www.omegaignitions.com
The technical info (FAQ, Product Reviews etc) is still available at http://www.stephenbottcher.net/omega

Airhead Odometer gears- source

Hello fellow inmates of airheadland. I responded to a thread asking for a source for speedo and odometer gears (apparently unobtanium), but I thought it would be of general interest as to where to find replacement gears for airhead instruments: http://www.odometergears.com/

Eduardo.

Anyway, since I used a tip, figured that I'd return one. The crossover pipe on my exhaust rusted out and somehow I just couldn't see paying $60 or so for basically a 12 inch shiny tube. Ok, so it has clamps built on each end...big deal. A little measuring...hmmm, looks like something with an inside diameter of about 30mm should do the trick. Off to the hardware store I go. Did you know that a 1 1/4 inch chrome bathroom drain pipe in 20 gauge (not 17 gauge...there are 2 different sizes) has an inside I.D. of 30mm? Cut to length, put a couple of slots on each end, apply 2 hose clamps and voila! Perfect fit! Leak free! I've been running that pipe for a couple months now with no problems and the chrome has not blued one bit. And all for the grand total of about $6! At that price, even if it lasts only a couple of years, I figure I'm ahead of the game.


Has anyone else tried this? Why not the thicker 17 gauge?

I'm guessing that since drain extensions are measured by OD, the thicker 17ga walls reduce the ID enough to make it a tight interference fit, or not fit over at all by a few .001"s

That's it exactly, Mark. I measured the inside diameter of both the 17 gauge and 20 gauge pipes and the ID of the 20 gauge pipe was 30 mm...just the right size to slip over those stubs. And just as an update, that pipe is still as sound and shiny as the day I put it on, roughly 5,000 miles ago according to my wonky odo. And this bike lives outside year-round.
