Not really, why? I'm a bit of a marine, I grin and bare it. Getting me to a doc is hard unless they tie me down and drive me. I would've refused med attention if I didn't take a nap.

Just curious, yeah I was released pretty quickly from the ER (2-3 hours???). Only took two loratabs and that was for the mirgane headache. Muscle soreness I could/can deal with. I'm hoping that the homeowners will pick up the ER tab and minor damage to the bike/ $600 Arai!!!. No way I want to get lawyers involved!!!!! Hopefully they will realize that too!!! If lawyers are involved I'll go for more $$$$$$$$$!!!

Rich, funny you mentioned Lortab for the migranes. My daughter suffers migranes in cycles. Her doctor (best Pediatrician out of like 17 in this county) told her explicitly that was a very bad drug for migraines after she took some while waiting to see him. I forget why he said that was so, but short of using the specific specialty migrane drugs he recommended the Excedrine Migrane Formula. And it works.

Both you folks heal quickly - April and Cruso will be here before you know it.

So when I raised the bike to G/S height, I extended my centerstand. I cut it in half and used a jack handle to add about 2" to the length. Doing that kind of screwed up the angle and it became difficult to deploy both on and off. I figured it was about time to do something about it. So I weighed my options, ordered new bushings bolt and nut for good measure.....and then added some material to the stop.


Result...

Dunno how I got so lucky as it was difficult to measure the 2 sides....but with the new bushings and stops, it's a dream to put up and down. KLR Mike was by using the shop and got to see my excitment the first time I popped it up. "Thats the feeling I'm going for everytime I work on my bike."

Bushing.

Nice! Was the hole rounded out at all? I've read a lot about people having to build up material there.

How much did all that cost?

Nope. Hole seemed just fine and measured round. Bushing, bolt, nut was around 11 bucks.

Thought I'd fix up my rear end a bit.

But it didn't last long.....

Got sideways in a big ass mud bog and sucked the fender up and vibrated the fastners off of the LED.

Took an old /5 fender and cut the front off. Fits in there pretty well.....hopefully it'll keep the mud off the guy behind me.

Hum, you got a new XD4 too....mine was paid for by someone else though, hope it take a little longer to scratch up than the XD3.

Did you notice Arai removed the tab of fabric under the D rings, like the XD3 had. Damn bastards!!!

are those T63's?? how are they holding up???

No....I never noticed that??? I'll have to go look, you mean the tab of fabric to seperate the D rings?? Tires are D606 ala Stagehand. I've had very good luck with them. I get around 4k per set and they are damn sticky on pavement and dirt, wet or dry and they don't wear all that weird. I've noticed at the end of TKC's life and T63, they get downright scary. Not the 606

Lite Brite!

Wow - 24 leds! Now I've got tail light envy with my piddly 12.

Have been lookin at LED turn signals - what clamps/bracket did you use (or make?) to attach em? And did you have to install a resistor so they don't blink super fast with the lower current draw?

Edit - d'oh! Just saw your other post on the led forum - for some reason I thought your turn signals were led - still would like to know what you did for brackets though!

The turn signals are seriously Ghetto mounted. I'l take a pic.

eh you shouldn't waste much time on things like turn signals anyways. You know you're going to break them. I'm on my 5th set of rear turn signals. I should get fined for littering considering how many of those things I've left in the woods. Of course now that I've got my Arlen Ness Triple-Dipped Chrome Bullet Signals I might have to take a bit better care of 'em

I had an XT350 that I could never break the turn signals off of, despite heavy destructive testing. So when I needed new ones for the PD, I got Yamaha OEM
