Hi Bob,

Still learning. I remember when you use to get a dialog box upon opening the site, already logged in, that told you about a PM. With the new software it seems that this has changed. In any event I saw where to check my PM's and replied there just a few minutes ago. I have been riddled with guilt for a long time for not knowing how to post individual pics. I am hoping that I am not the only one who has struggled with this. I will experiment a bit later today to make sure I got it. In your point # 8 above I am glad you said "Uncle" rather than "Daddy". If you were my "Daddy" you would be at least 88 years old!

Cheers, and thanks again.

Hey folks, been finding out some interesting things about the 690 sensors. The EFi sensors appear to be a mix and match of off the shelf stuuf, used by the japanese car manufacturers. Working on cross referencing the part numbers and with luck, we won't have to get porked by the dealer anymore

I'll let you know what I find out....

Wicked Hi Tech Case Protector

DSCN0338

Commercial grade Velcro. Just a bit cheaper than those aftermarket case protectors and, when it starts to degrade, just peel it off and put some more on. Does it work, well I have Alpinestar Tech 8 boots and it holds up very well and does protect the cases from scuffing.

No Slop Valve on Acerbis Cap, Pecards, Garrage

DSCN0353

All the photos of my 690 are after washing so it looks pretty. BTW it was only a few months old at the time. Isn't usually that photogenic. I cut down the length of the no-slop valve slightly to allow it to clear my KTM tailbag.

DSCN0354

What to use on your Renazco seat to waterproof and otherwise protect it, as recommended by James.

DSCN0370

Where I keep my baby.

DSCN0379

After all life is about balance.

Night Falcon has created a picture posting monster. Blame him, not me.

Cheers,

Turn Signal Clearance, TT Kickstand Foot

DSCN0319

Good clearance to prevent toasting.

DSCN0328

Well worth the $30+. Gives you a more stable kickstand plant in gravel, etc.

More Hi-Tech Protective Applications

DSCN0326

More Velcro and Plumbers Pipe Tape to protect the TT engine guards.

DSCN0332

Another application of Velcro to quiet down the cables from vibrating on the plastic headlight mask. Please buy my book, 1,000 Uses For Commercial Grade Velcro.

TT Fold Back Brake Lever Pedal

DSCN0340

So, when you fall just right, or catch your OEM brake lever on a rock and it snaps off like a rotten twig you should retrieve the broken piece and use the TT fold back pedal as a back scratcher.

And now I shall take a rest.

Nippy,
You need to see someone about those retentive traits....or find something else to do that has nothing to do with Velcro and a dust rag
