Here you go Not sure exactly how it is supposed to install but I soldered a cig plug for the power to the monitor and connected the camera to a license plate light. That requires me to turn on the parking light to send power to the camera but that is fine with me and means I don't have to put it in reverse to turn on the camera. ymmv

Bled brakes on the Harley - which then required a wash since I managed to spill brake fluid everywhere. 2.5 years and 40+k miles and this is the first time it's been washed (not including mother nature)

Fixed rear drum brake on the R90 and rigged up a bar end mirror so I could have one on the throttle side. Test fit the new seat cowl I picked up too.

Helped a friend fix his CB on his Voyager XII.

All-in-all a good day spent in the garage with a couple beers and the stereo turned up.

changing out the header

changing out the old header with a freshly coat ceramic header on R11RS

OLD HEADER COATED WITH BLACK SATIN 10 YEARS AGO




NEW HEADER COATED WITH SILVER .. NEW LOOK



REPAINTED THE MID CONNECTOR TO MATCH THE HEADER




This a rare set of Luthmeister Dual exhaust that were made for the R11XXRS and RT..long time ago.

I just bought a Weber Spirit 310 to supplement the Big Green Egg. Only 3 burners, and no side burner. Can't have everything.

Old, the burner covers were badly rusted and the grill surface had rusted badly too. I had to use an aftermarket cover over the rusty parts. Plus, we are building an outdoor kitchen and needed a new grill to cut the kitchen parts to fit the grill!

I love the big green egg, but I use propane because I am always too busy to stoke coals.

Flushed the brakes front and rear with fresh fluid on two bikes and installed an inline fuel filter on one. Then, got a beer out of the man-fridge...
