More bike photos?



That photo was taken after this was done (hopefully correctly):

OK what kind of bulb is that. No hi low Motorcycle HID's available for it. This kind of messes with my plans.

Is there another name for this kind of base? Like a b0004 something or other.

A normal H3 will fit (but your earth/ground may have to be done differently. Common as- mostly in driving lights. Available at any auto store... heaps on ebay, but I've never heard of one with Hi/Low.

HID hi'low usually don't look like they'll fit properly and, from the few I've seen, are not a 'direct fit' for these smaller globes.... but they claim to fit.
This came up on ebay AU, look up some in your own area:

For the money, I'd just look at changing the whole light to something like the Trailtech X2. Less stuffing around. http://trailtech.net/light_comparison.html

First time doing an oil change.. and overtorqued the oil drain plug leading to a crack in the threads.

Anyone have any suggestions on patching this up? I was considering JBWeld or similar options unless someone has a better idea.

the off road lens is very small , this means less light with out a good optical lens to amplify the lumens .

look in to 2-4 rows of leds some for low and some for hi beams

I have stumbled across this tidbit. I was going to look at another one tomorrow, but he sold it already.

http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/mcy/4048676700.html

I know the obvious questions to ask. What are some non standard things to look at that might be wrong with the 2002's. Ill check airbox, verify carb is not the CV carb and make sure everything looks ok from the outside. Any other information I should know?

Best repair would be welding up the cracks and re-tapping the oil drain bolt thread. Obviously you could also get a new lower case, but that's a lot for money and time. JB... yeah it'll work in a pinch, but I wouldn't ride around like that for any period of time.

If you search around this damage has happened to a few members. The usual cause is reusing the crush washer which leads to over-torquing the bolt.

Ouch! I was worried about that today when I had to reuse my washers. This is were I use a shorter 3/8 ratchet and just snug. My torque wrench seems to overtorque at these low ft lbs. Could try having it welded or find a new case.

I did the same thing to my 1985 cb700 while i was in florida just before my trip back to nh....I tried jb welding it, but still ended up going through 10 quarts of oil in 30 hours... I agree with getting it welded.

Looking for tire advice. So far 95% of my riding has been gravel and pavement. I have t63's on it and can't think of one bad thing to say about them other than they only seem to last about 2000 miles but can be had for under $150 a set. I've pushed them fairly hard on both dry and wet pavement and they hang in there.
Think I would be disappointed going with something like a 705 or 700 over these? I never plan on being a hill climbing madman offroad so mainly concerned with gravel and gravel/sand that is kicked up in the roadway everywhere around here.
