A Dirt Tricks 45 tooth Ironman sprocket and some of CJ's Axle Adjuster Blocks (I cracked my stock blocks) just showed up in the mail. Time to get them mounted and get the big 950 back in riding shape.

The highway pegs are from "Adventure Design":

I'm sorry, "highway pegs?" I don't understand.

I gave my new GPS mount a 500+ mi shake down ride.



Man I like having a screen I can see well!

Also on the way home we hit a big storm. Unplugged it and dimmed screen to 60% and it lasted right at 6 hrs before shutting down. I am very pleased. :)

He is referring to the fact you have highway pegs on a bike that should see little highway use. Referring to it's renowned dirt prowess. ;)

In other words he was being sarcastic. :)

brought it home from the Stealership.

New, worked in a free first oil change, which will effectively be the second.

The "tech people" at said Stealership were telling me that I should come back in a thousand km for the first oil change. After seeing the crud and junk in the oil after the first 20 - 50 miles from fellow inmates posts, I will get a filter, oil and do it myself. I got told the rings are super hard, and not prone to wear (no sh*t) and it will take a while for them to seat against the cylinder wall... uh huh...

Me thinks I will continue with the the love/hate Stealership relationship.


Today, I install the Wings (Shorty), KTM skidplate and Unifilter Kit.

hopefully I still have time in the day to rip a bit.... er, break her in.

I've been working on a similar setup for my iPad Mini, but I went with a different case and mounted to the handlebars. The biggest problem I have is seeing the screen in full sunlight, mine seems to wash out too easily. I didn't go with the Lifeproof case because the charging cord port wasn't waterproof while in use and the one I bought is. Have you had any problems with the cradle setup? Is it pretty secure offroad?

As long as the screen is mounted vertical I can see it fine. If it is laid down flat it is harder to see. It is the iPad mini with Retina display. I have no issues seeing the screen. I did not care about the charging port being waterproof as I know I can flip the case door shut and run off battery. Also I have heard of folks using the 3M blue puddy around the port and it working fine.

As far as the mount, it worked fine on my trip this last weekend. It was lots of washboard gravel and dirt. No jumping was done, but I think it should hold up just fine. :)

[QUOTE=PS-RagE;24055487]So, had to tear into the big fellow so I could get the GPS installed.

Tank cover, side panels, headlight mask, windshield and headlight all come off to get me to the AUX wiring:



What Mount is that for the GPS?
