Suspension stiffening

Took the suspension off for an upgrade, dont like the bottoming out! She's parked on her knees for a week until parts are back :-)
Note the fancy top fairing made by member Rade! Really good handywork, I hope it will help the wind better than the stock one

I fitted this.


Same type of quick release as fitted to the line after the fuel pump.
No more fiddling about trying to get the hose off the tank taps :)
No need to turn the taps off..... or remembering to turn them back on again ;)

Yeah, those would be much better with just a hose tail instead of the QR at that point as the tap area is prone to damage from flying rocks. I good solid chunk of aluminium with a hose tail tucked out the way, hose running under the battery to a quick release would be the best way to go.

I am thinking about making a set.

After getting my new bike, the first tip I got, was to protect those taps with a piece of plastic - never did though. Maybe a reserve tap in the tool pouch..

Is that your livingroom, or do you have a tv in the garage?

Fired it up after looking over the carbs and some other problem.

Started like a champ!

Still some work before it can be ridden but getting closer but there is still lots of snow around and ice on the roads here and there.

I am in the process of adding a 55W HID hi/lo and LED flood lights. I welded sturdy tabs on the front of my nerf bars for the flood lights. As with any electrical project, the most time consuming part is doing tidy wiring.

I provided power to both sets of lights directly from the 15A fused and switched connection used for lights. I wanted independent on/off for either light, and an indicator light for each light. While I was at it, I added another switch to dim the indicator lights.

Went from this:


To this:


Here's the dash with all lights off:


With indicator LEDs on daytime brightness:


LED Dimmer engaged:


The LEDs and 10A switches are from Highway Dirt Bikes. As received, the LEDs are painfully bright. I added another 1k resistor to dim it for the daytime setting. The nighttime setting uses a 22k resistor.

The switch over by the 12V outlet is my ABS disable.
