Another option on the brake line to to convert to the 990S style line. It will work great with your high fender set up and is a very clean install that cleans up the brake line routing.

When CJ gets around to making a caliper relocator bracket so I can run a single 320mm disc, I will have an extra 990S dual brake line.

I guess if you go with a left brake line you will need to find a 2004 line since that was a 265 front travel bike.

Hmmm.. have any pics?

I thought about moving the double banjo to the right caliper and then going up and over the high fender with the left line to the left caliper (kind of he opposite of how the bike came stock... but using two full length lines instead of that shorty line).

I kept my low fender when I did my brake line conversion but it will work the same with the high fender. I have an aux light bracket that will not work with a high fender. I will try and post a picture tonight.

...we have a roller... wow it is tall. I'm 6 foot and when I stand beside it with the bike straight up and down, the tip of the handle bar hits me right in the nipples.

(I just wanted to type nipples)




I'm still trying to decide where to install the 3 step ladder...

Fixing "little annoyances"...

My center stand has been a little too tight.. so I spread it a bit to give the swingarm a little more clearance


of course... now that I finally got around to doing that... the thing is waaaaaay too short and is going to have to be replaced
(with both wheels on the ground the center stand has air under it )




My bike has had a small weep on the left side for a couple of years... just enough to make a mess.. not enough that I've bothered to fix it. I've been assuming (hoping?) that it is the o-ring behind the oil pressure switch...



Since there is no oil in the bike and the side stand is off.. no better time than the present to change it

Fingers crossed this fixes it.

That's the neutral switch there, actually bud...

Oil pressure switch is up in the trough of the V, on the back of the front cylinder I believe. Do yourself a favor and pull the little spring out of the contact on the switch and stretch it now while you have it apart. Ensure your neutral light keeps on tickin...

Hi Geek, what's with the silver subframe ?

Same issue on my bike, neutral sensor has been weeping for a couple of years. I replaced the oring last fall and it still weeps. I now consider it a chain lube device.

Glad to see your big twin being put back together,i've been missing the HDR photos of Colorado

Centerstand trade?

I never use mine because it is a pain to get it up. Maybe one a tad shorter would do the trick?
What is the height difference Geek?
