Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

From a PM
"Hey Rory, any tips or better photo's of your speedo sensor? I made the mistake of thinking I could mount it in the original spot, the flex in the disc while braking was to much and tore the sensor to bits... new speedo cable on the way.. I can't quite see in the photo's on OC how you have relocated your speedo sensor.. "


My mounting of the speedo pickup is a little crude, but it keeps it away from damage. There is an aluminum plate, that is bolted to the carrier's threaded hole. Mine is so ruff that only one bolt is in, but it does the job. Sometimes I have to twist it a bit to get a good signal. with a bad signal the speed reading is all over the place.

You can see the bolt in this photo

I don't have any other photos.

We do a lot of shopping on the Internet

I got the Motomaster from motostrano http://www.motostrano.com/cosubrsy.html

$550 on special Less than a week to get here.
I was soo jealous when I saw your price. Been checking there web site and just got the deal. $314.22 shipped to the door. It's for a Slowzuki but, a little checking and I found out it's the exact same caliper. Got to make a spacer for the disc so what the heck. Ten minutes after I ordered it they took it off their sight.

I haven't ridden much this past year save for one trip to Colorado and back but I realized today that I've got about 31,000 miles on my Motomaster disk and caliper. I've gone through a couple of sets of pads but it's the same disk.

So I love it and I think the best thing I can say is that I never even think about it anymore. I've done track days on my 19/17 setup and just sailed past people braking from a GPS verified 130mph and the brake never faded. I've ridden about 5000 miles two up with side cases and a top case and I did some fairly aggressive braking.

Is it as good as a pair of 320's on a sport bike? No. Is it as good as the stock setup? No, it's much better. It's not just the weight which you notice. It's the feel - the feel is so much better than those wooden stock calipers. It's stronger but it has infinitely better feel which is almost as important as outright power.

I love it and I'm glad that people have started adopting it. For spacers check out McMaster.com - you'll find precision spacers but the bearing idea is a cool one.

Political views

Mookish,
I think Snarley was referring to Rory (K2m).
Although mixing politics and hobby might be viewed as bad taste by some...
Almost everyone has some signature statement, possibly political, that enlightens the ADVRider user, about the adjacent ADVRider users.

Riders are often = Gnarly, or poetically Bob Dylan, or maybe entirely 2-wheel emphemeral... Up on one wheel, or packing 2 on 2.

Signature, or not...
Obviously some people are sensitive, and I am guessing Snarley is sensitive to the Hamas/ Palestine comments by the signature for K2m.

Having spent 10 years active duty US, medical discharge, and receive a 60% disability for Gulf War related service. I could give a F'n hoot about what anyone has to say about anything in his/her signature for ADVRider.
There are better things to worry about,... like the kids, wife, own health, and mortgage.
Enjoy your bike and thank the stars for political freedom, if you have it.
Treat every day like it's worth a million bucks.

Cheers.

"Why does the west refuse to recognize Hamas.... The legitimate, elected government of the Palestinian people?

Israel has condemned it self by one irrefutable significant action....... The fact ...that it will not allow independent UN observers to monitor the ceasefire, .......and their activities in the palestinian territories. .........Somthing the Palestinians have been calling on for years.

What is Israel trying to hide from the world? "


************************************

No i'm not sensitive, but if i want to read about the Israel/Palestinian conflict ad nauseum, there are plenty of websites that cater for that. Please dont abuse your signature to spruke your political agenda.. thats all.

Nuff said..now more bike stuff plzzz

I think that that sums it up quit well.

It's all-right it's my thread

I did some fiberglass work on my bike. Sort of "make the things that you cannot buy."
Here's another shot from the front
