I got lucky.....it stayed up on top of the step......I fell to the right out of the frame in the dirt and launched the bike to the left......I was trying to go up the right side rather than using the "ladies aid" (stacked rocks).....that plan didn't work out so well

Then I figured I should capture the moment with a photo......

Yep, dragged it down for restart......back down the hill.....up the rocks


What front turn signals are you folks using as replacements?

I also need to order the brake hose clamp for the left fork guard.......I must've only finger tightened it when I put the forks back on after changing the seals.......looked down and it was no where to be found.....zip tie to the rescue.....

Also planning on ordering a set of black WR250X plastics......I had some new CORE graphics printed up and it would be wrong to put'em on top of my scratched up plastics (that's not to say the new ones won't get scratched up shortly after application of new graphics )

The Service Honda website isn't too user friendly.....it wants the part number for the brake hose clamp......I thought they'd provide an exploded microfish to look up the part number? What sight are you guys using for OEM part # reference/look-up?

Service Honda has both a reverse part look-up (which you are referring to) as well as an exploded microfiche that lets you look at an exploded view and identify parts

Yeah, their start page isn't very user friendly. You've got to click on the "motorcycle" link in the middle of the OEM parts page. Here's the quick link to your bike

Although, maybe it's time for new glasses if you're having trouble with your "sight."

Hey mpatch,

I am interested in a TCI products Borega rack like yours. Did you have any mounting problems? Is it functioning the way you wanted? I have Wolfman racks on so I'm not sure if there is any interference. If anyone has that setup can you chime in with any known problems in mounting both.

Love my HDB setup... but I didn't install the guard/turn signal setup because I didn't see any way of making it light up as a running light, only as a signal.

I've seen too many motorcycle headlights line up with a car's headlight behind them, without running lights you can't make out the bike and could understandably turn in front of them.

I keep forgetting to order a pair for my Zeta handguard lights. They have a video on youtube as well that shows the function. Should work just as well with the HDB ones.
