Noted in my list. And we thank you!!! Best klr mod so far.... The main reason I did it was to have room to put in my homemade dash, looks are definitely a huge plus, though.

LED Blinkers. Fixed.

Here are some pics of the LED Load Equalizers that I used to fix my blinker situation. You just tie one into the circuit near each blinker. Less than 5 min. per, once you get the circuit worked out in your head, paper works great, too. If anyone needs help, I'll be glad to draw up a schematic, scan it, and upload it. It's your most basic circuit with one LARGE-ass resistor, lol.

Fog Lights and Dashboard

Pics of my new fog lights, courtesy O'reilly.





Here's my in-dash 12V socket setup and all of my light switches. It's el cheapo, but it works just fine for me, and when all else fails....I'll have my suction-cup, glass-globe compass. lol


You can see my charger running to my phone inside my tank bag, screen visible through the phone pouch window.

whats the point of LED blinkers if you use the resistor to trigger the flasher... uses the same power as the incandescent bulbs. looks kooler is about all? why not change to a low current flasher.... just sayin

That's what they had at O'Reilly, in-town, same day. Not worried about the voltage atm, just looks. When I have some more of that magic green stuff that makes people give you stuff that you want, I'll be picking up a FEW more things, and the new switch is on the list, as I am still running the stock fronts for now. I do want to lose all of that voltage, so I will get it all rigged up. One (or two) things at a time Don't wanna get bored.

Finally got my t-mod and a new Uni air filter today. The package was sent to my PO Box for some odd reason, instead of my house here in town.

Tested my T-mod / Pass =D

Tested my carb t-mod for the first time the other day. Dove off into a hole that I've been eying for a while now. Front wheel took a dive, scared the shit outta me, but then she leveled off right above my knees and just under the seat. Took her through it quite a few times, and she passed with flying colors! Wish I had someone there to get some pics or a vid, maybe later.

Birmingham

I just moved back to Alabama after being gone for 11 years. I'm living in b'ham atm, and will be staying in this general area for a while. Just looking for some riding buddies around here. I've seen a couple bimmers riding around, but I'm never on my bike when I see them.
