And While You're at It....

Being seen by cagers is a good thing so consider a headlight modulator for your high beams. I use the one from Comagination and it's saved my bacon more than once. I also use a brake light modulator with an auxiliary brake light. The brake light modulator is also from Comagination and the aux brake light is a Whelen LIN3 red LED light head... a real attention-getter.



My fork seals went south at about 8000 miles - dried bug guts on the fork tubes. There is, however, a pretty low-tech fix for that... truck shock gaiters cut down to protect the fork tubes. Installing them requires dropping the stanchions out of the triple trees but that's a good excuse to play with spring rates and change your fork oil.



If you like to tinker you've chosen the right bike.
