Are you sure it is complete? I know the one online is missing sections:

I - Front Suspension
J - Rear Susp.
L - Brakes
M - Electrical System
N - Engine Cooling

If your version DOES have these sections....I would LOVE to get a copy!!!!

Poor choice of words on my part. My post addressed the fact that the usb drive can be useful and I reeled off what I thought I loaded on it off the top of my head as examples I only have loaded on it what is available now. Sure hope someone gets the missing sections.

I hope so....maybe we can update monthly, to add post #s of anything truly significant. It's a lot of stuff to keep track of.

We'll see what CatskillBill has in mind and/or develop a participative system. He did a really fine job to jump-start the process. It's his baby, as long as he's willing.

That's the plan...at least until I run out of steam. I'll probably batch it - let several pages go by before I abstract them. Suggestions and additions are welcome. I know I've left out "tires"; I'll fix that.

In the next revision I'll put, at the end of the index, the number of the last post indexed. I'm glad you like it. Now I can ask for help with a clear conscience. All I need now is the bike.

It's great to have an index to this thread. However, how do you search on a post#?

Anybody know what Lithium batter is proper for the Terra? Anybody using one? I think the weight and space saving are worth it. That extra room can house some tools.

LFX14L5-BS12 Shorai 12v 14 AH PBEq LiFePO4 Power Sports Battery ???

Also, any word on lowering the Terra?

And for the front I was just thinking of sliding the fork tubes until they almost hit the bars.

There are a couple of threads on that over at CH. Seems the 1" link is the way to go, as you can't quite adjust the front to match the 1.75" link.

My thoughts on the 1" also. There was a 1.75 lowering on ebay, and that got me thinking about it. I'm only doing this to make my kickstand work proper LOL. I think lowering it by an inch shouldn't hurt theoff road much, and will make it tons easier for around town and stop and go. I'm somewhat getting used to the height already, so this is not one of those "hafta have today" gadgets, like AC.

Is this a joke? Sometimes I don't get forum humor...

If you are serious about he kick stand giving you trouble you can get the suicide kickstand syndrome fixed with a hammer. Just tap the "D" welded on the sidestand a few times. If any paint flakes off spray it with a little satin black. Cheapest fix ever, and guaranteed to fix suicide kickstands

You can leave the hammer alone and use a great big crescent wrench...close the jaws down where they are just a bit wider opening that the diameter of the "D" ring...and bend...the top & bottom....trial & error until you get the hair trigger fixed. It worked really good for me. Didn't have to reprint anything.

If you don't get my humor, no worries, I have a retarded sense of humor, it makes me laugh at least

Yep, a joke based on the ride review of earlier. But not a joke about lowering it. I was out today, and I love riding this pig. The problem is stopping in traffic, my balls take a beating on this donkey. They should make a seat with a depression to protect "ye ole nutz".

The joke part revolves around an earlier review based on a test drive of a Strada, and reference to the Terra using bigger wheels and a stock side stand, which effectively makes the Terra kick stand too short apparently. Not that I noticed, but that is the speculation.
