Nice. Good thing the Harbor Freight sidewalk sale is tomorrow!

My GS was put up in a warehouse for the last six years. Surprisingly, the battery still had a faint heartbeat according to my tester. After trying to trickle charge it back up though, it became clear that there would be no free lunch in this department.

So here is a nice sealed unit to replace it:

Have you experimented in the past with lifting the engine out the side with a come along? Putting any motorcycle on its side smacks of preloading bad karma haha.

There's a long rod going through the gearbox that gets in the way if you don't pull it out.

The engine's only held in with the 2 rods at the bottom(yours might have the mounts on top that go to the starter cover too). You might be able to lay the bike over and lift the engine out the side with a come-along.

Fox

I have a Fox Twin Clicker on my '92 PD and sent it in to the factory last year for a rebuild. I am pleased with the job they did.

I don't think you can get the fox anymore.

The options are Ohlins, WP, Wilbers, Works, YSS, Hagon, ...

First things first

Pull that bike into the garage and drain out 6 gallons of 6 year old gas, oil and gear oil.
