No major obstacles getting it in, about 6-8 steps up to the front door and a nice wide door and it's going right inside about 2 feet from the door. And I'm sure we have a few good cold beers around for afterwards.... So any chance someone can help?

We live in North Park near University & Texas...
Yo Crazy,

I'm able and willing to help but I'm about an hours drive from ya. It isn't the time but naturally the gas... Hopefully you'll find someone a lil closer that can help. Good luck.

Yeah I am not even sure where Capistrano is... Hopefully there is someone around these parts who has a few minutes to help out. My girlfriend suggests I back the trailer up to the sidewalk and hope a passerby offers to help... She doesn't realize no one walks around here...

Hey guys, I'm in San Diego, Bay Park/Mission Bay area specifically.
I run RaceTech Electric out of Ocean Beach, we build stators, voltage regulators, and electronic components.
I've got an 85 FJ1100 at the moment for street, and a KX250F on long term loan for dirt. Up for street and dirt rides anytime!
Also available to help out if local guys need a hand. I'm an electrical specialist, and a decent wrench.

Can you handle this ?

Evan, i just bought a LED brake light kit for my XR650R Dualsport. It is a dual output Ricky Stator. The LEDs work when I connect them to the DC regulator and ground it, but I do not think I can wire them to AC brake light, so they turn off with kill switch system. I drive at night and obviously the Baja Designs brake lamp needs backup .

Hey bud. Are you in SD? I can take a look if you'd like. LED's are intended to, and are happy being powered from a DC current source. You'll notice they have to be hooked up in the correct polarity orientation, as they won't light in one direction. Generally black to ground, and then one wire is brake light, and one wire is running light. You can usually power an LED light on a AC current source. The LED's will light when current polarity is correct to pass current through the diode (positive polarity), and they have a decay time. The time the current polarity is negative in an alternating current source is usually less than the decay time, so your LED's will usually stay lit and not be too noticeable. Like you said though, you can't light them without your engine running if you're driving them on an AC lighting output.

Anyone interested in sharing a garage in the central SD area? If not, anyone got a [piece of a] garage they're looking to rent out? Keeping an eye on Craigslist but thought I'd ask here too. Shoot me a PM if you know of anything or are interested in sharing.

I may have space if you are just looking for bike storage.
