I walked by mine and gave it a good swift kick......
:llama::llama::llama:New grips, bar ends mounted, rear tire, tail light, turn lights.
How come you didn't just replace the rear light assembly? Love the pipe on the left...
What did I do to my VFR? Let me tell you. I drilled posts holes by hand since the PTO shaft for my three point post hole digger is screwed up. I set end posts, made H-braces, pulled fence wire and hung gates. What does this have to do with VFR anything? It turns out that, since I am planning on taking the VFR to Barber for Vintage Days and will be gone a few days, my wife wants the fence around our property suitably secure. She wanted gates at either end of our drive where there formerly were none. In order to ride I must set posts, pull wire and do all kinds of non-motorcycle related things. I might even have a chance to actually look at the bike before I leave.
I've been flummoxed as to what to use for a tank pad/protector on my rwb, as I don't fancy the look of the usual greys and blacks, and it would bug me if the blue or red didn't match if I got a similarly coloured one.
So I tried this plasti dip stuff everyone's been talking about haha. I used the clear, taped the red stripe around the top of the tank and then around the creases at the front and just above the seat as borders, basically catching most of the area that would be touchd by my inner thighs. I think it turned out great. I will see how I holds up. I don't expect it to be permanent, but that's the great part about the stuff. I can peel it off and go again.
I didn't take any pictures. Honestly, the stuff it hard to see. The pearl still shines through the dip. I suppose the difference would be that it looks like it has a bit of texture now, and is a semi-gloss finish... Not quite a flat finish. Seems pretty grippy right now as well.
No light bulb sockets... and its much cheeper to get it ready for inspection this way.
Gotcha....good luck with the inspection
I would have thought it had an electric start fitted
Went to the DMV. Needed a bit more paperwork to register. Got all the paperwork done. Should have it tagged in the morning.
Done ordering the Two Bros M2 VALE slip-on. I decided to get this exhaust because the rep at 4 wheel online offered me a good price. Will post a short review when it is installed.
Put on my new EMGO mirrors and black CNC brake and clutch lever.
Took the radiator off to free the fan. The bracket holding the fan to the radiator got bent, thus pushing the fan against the radiator when I got hit by a car crossing the double yellows two weeks ago. Top off the coolant, went for a short ride and checked that it works properly.
Glad your ok
made a tail out of fiberglass...
and now i have this
I think i can live with this till the snow starts to fall!
man that wheel was clean 100 miles ago! all that shit from sitting around is starting to come off.
Took my battery off the bike & put it on a tender. And I want to install these farkles over the winter
I just got the shock from Jamie @ Daugherty Motorsports & the Super Mosfet Kit FH020AA from Jack @ Roadstercycle (got that last year & have yet to install it...)
Fitted new front disk rotors and HH pads.
A bit of preventive maintenance by installing a new mosfet R/R. Direct soldered the AC wires. Made sure DC plug contacts were clean and squirted some ox-gard into the plug. Changed out the rear tire. Installed the givi racks, have top waiting on E41 side cases.
Next work will probably be brake light led kit for the top case. And amber led kit for turn signal purposes on the side cases.
Lefty got her NY State Inspection sticker today!!!
Plasti Dipped my fairings......used the blue edge tape,made sure the edges were firmly pressed down . Pretty much masked everything that could get over spray.Four coats and will leave till tomorrow to cure.
QUESTION, when removing the tape should I just pull it off slow and straight. Very anxious to see if my tape line is perfect...a little nervous.
Best to remove the tape before it dries completely. Sometimes it will tear if you don't.
