blinkers

ooooo Just bought Jesse's rear turn singles. After breaking the stock ones i bought some cheapo LED chinese ones from the lamp district of HongKong and broke all 4 within 1 year. I am stoked on those flush mount turn signals and will post pics when I mount them.

I love how his add says "Never kick one off again!"

I'm really jealous of you guys down south with your nice green lawns. Here in central Maine we are in the start of a 12-14 inch snow storm. The 3rd weekend storm in 3 weekends....................Frank

I wish it was my lawn (and cars)...mine's still brown. But I guess it's still alot better than it being white.

Does anyone have a fitting guide/photos step by step of fitting an acerbis tank? Bought one used with no fitting kit and we've got it on but it's flapping around at the front. So much that have had to wrap a lanyard round the fuel filler and down round the frame to hold it steady

Thanks in advance

Rich

Funny, Acerbis has been making these tanks for years but continues to neglect to post the installation instructions online.

If its flopping around at front are you sure you have the two rubber donuts with standoffs in the right place? The standoffs screw on the end of the upper frame mount bolts (the exposed thread portion), and then the donuts go on the ends of the standoffs. These are what hold the front of the tank so its possible yours are missing, loose, or not aligned with the slots in the tank.

Wicked First Post

Hi all, I havent posted yet so i Decided to show you all my first bike, a 97 DR350 I picked up this fall. It has 4000 mi on the odometer and I got it for $960.

FlyingWman came with me to pick it up since at the time I knew next to nothing about motorcycles, and I had no truck to bring it home with.

Here she is all loaded up.


Another shot after a ride this fall before putting it away.


And here is a shot of it yesterday after replacing the rear and front tires and cleaning up the tail end. Ignore the crappy pic and flyingWmans DR in the background please.

Gentleman you are true diamonds - that is exactly the help I needed.

Markk900, 2bold2getold and distech many many thanks!

So parts 2, 3 and 4 are what I need from that acerbis microfiche. Needle in a haystack????

Looks like we'll be making stuff

Rich

Frank,

They are dunlop D755's and I believe they are the stock size, The reason I put them on is they were thrown in with the bike when I bought it from the previous owner, and the tires that were on it before were shot.
