I remember watching this Carson episode, it was the funniest thing ever

Hackett laying on the floor screaming and then at the end a casual "you can have the duck"

He was a great comedian

No, it was an 'outdated' POS. Now that the Germans are suppose to have
electrics like Yamaha has had for the last 4 years it's old technology.

The other forum

I saw one of those ECU/AF1 threads. Man, it was the last time I visited that forum. Brutal. I don't think my skin is thick enough to post there.

It's more relaxing to be here, have a cup of coffee, and look at photos like this.

I've almost got that group order sorted.

Today, Yamaha Super Ten (without the flash )...Tomorrow, LC GS!!!

Clutch side...none. Brake side...dipends on how hard someone is on brakes. I've been doing this mod on all of my bikes and i always appreciated the result. Next thing is to replace front pads with Brembo SA "Rosse"(red") That's gonnna make a serious difference.

Test rode an XTZ today.
Pretty sweet ride. Loved the sound, smoothness and power of the motor.
Hated the buffeting of this particular bike. (tall V Stream equipped)
Great brakes, and handling and ride seemed pretty good, especially considering I didn't mess with the suspension at all.
That sloping seat thing would have to go. Very uncomfortable, plus it had my knees sliding into the fairing. Getting back on my Seat Concepts equipped DR felt very nice.
Respect to those of you who use these a lot on the dirt. I'm 6;7", 230#, my highway bike is a Rocket III Roadster, and the XTZ still felt pretty huge.
I'm looking for something a little more long distance multi-surface travel oriented than my DR and I think with a little time to dial one in, an XTZ could work. I want to try a 990 Adventure first though.

It shrinks. Gets smaller everyday for a while.

Well, smaller for what it is. It's not DR small. :)

The seat is easy to level out by replacing the 3 rear rubber bumpers with lower ones (22W-24741-00-00). Lots of choices for windscreens and adjustable bracket .

Did you replace the hard brake/clutch lines down the frame with those, or do they just tie in at both ends?
