So you do all that shit to your bike and then take a test ride in a T-shirt? The ADV ATGATT Nazis are gonna go all heathen on your ass.

(PS: The red ones are still faster. )

I couldn't read it, but the shirt read, "Does this bike make my butt look fat".

Well, I am a bit fat, so I thought it was funny.

Well, I haven't had a speeding ticket in almost a year




Thanks Pansy.

I think it says "Does this bike make my butt look fast?"



And ... yes.

Your photography is excellent, as is your account of the work. That work is difficult enough, and then to record it as you do makes it a much more difficult, tedious task. You deserve much credit and respect for all you have done there.

As an aside, you can tell a guy is comfortable in his shop when he is working in socks.

Well, as those who were so kind as to save my tank bag from the rain at Hungry Mother the year saw, I had as odd attachment system.

I was waiting for these metal painted clips to be delivered and they came when I got back.

I get so tired of those plastic one breaking. :
These metal ones were $3.86 each from here http://www.strapworks.com/

Supplies: needle and thread, clip, One Wrap Velcro, 3/4" strap and a Cadbury egg. (lighter now shown for sealing edges)



First, I cut the existing strap and sew on the clip half.





Next attach second strap and measure.





Sew in pull loop.



I couldn't find my white grease pencil, so I used staples to make where the Velcro was going.



Staple the Velcro in place.



Finished attachment.



It ain't fancy, but it works great.

Here's how things are going.

K1100RS LED project


It started out with this.



I'm making a dash light.

This looks better and easier.

Ok, if I use this LT-x12SMD: 7 inch 12-LED Light Tube



Found here http://www.superbrightleds.com/

http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...D_LED_tube.htm


I'll be wiring through the blue sea fuse block.


Today I did this.
Installed an anber LED driving light.













Modified GPS bar to recieve a 7" white LED dash light.









Installed, awaiting LED to arrive.
It will be turned on and off via a modified hazard switch.





After Steve cleaned up the HID relay and wiring, it was up to me to route it.









Re-routed the GPS wiring.

Thank you sweety


Next, the fuel fill neck.



See that screw...I didn't at the time of this photo.

It was worse than I expected.









Bad gasket, will replace.



I cleaned off all the loose stuff.



All cleaned up.



I had to come up with a way to clean this up w/o trashing the fuel filter.
So I did this and used a SS wire brush and a vacuum to remove most of the debris.



The wire brush couldn't get it all, so I had to use fine sand paper, and again with the vacuum.






All done until the gasket set gets here.



Now I picked up that spring, not sure where it came from, but while cleaning up I found another spring.



As I figured out, the second spring wasn't part of this project.



I wonder if there is anything I could seal the pitted set with that wouldn't breakdown in the presence of fuel?
