Taillight, turn signals, dash lights, neutral light, and horn are they fused somewhere together at a spot not in the fuse box?

I lost them all this morning 4 am commute with only a headlight.
Thanks

Kinda along the same lines

Does anybody know if the blank slot in the fuse block has a wire that ends up some where??
I noticed that the lower side is wired to the ignition, hot with the key in the on position, but I haven't pulled the fuse block apart or opened the wire harness to see what's in there if anything.

Nuthin new here

A month ago this was a complete stocker. Nothing major, just rigged her up for some distance riding. This is my second L and it's pretty much a mirror (cept the bash plate and exhaust) of the last one. I made some brackets for the turn signals to get em up off the tank. Turned out pretty good.

I'll put an exhaust on it later this year and I'm still on the fence about another bash plate. Functional but like the looks without. Take my chances I guess. Love this bike!!

The wife knows when to stop backing the cage in when she hears, oooooohhhhh botheeeerrrrr. Probably would do better with a character that talks a little faster.

I just switched back to the stock exhaust because I am getting tired of rebuilding my White Brothers E2.

So my question is who makes the most durable, quite exhaust on the market.

I guess I shouldnt complain too much the White Brothers has 20k miles on it, but dam it I expect the packing to last longer that 3 months, and the bolts to stay tight.

Im running a FMF q2 about 7k on it so far, I had a issue with the cheap mounting nut but other than that no complaints. I took it apart to repack but it was like new at 6k, red loctite the bolts too.

Chain snapped on Thursday

Thankfully I was just pulling out of a parking lot and not on the highway.

Standard sprocket cover did it's job though and the chain didn't damage the case. It's toast now, however, as is the chain.

So.....couple questions:

1. I need a new sprocket cover/case saver - is XRs Only about the only choice (aside from OEM obviously)

2. Do I need new sprocket bolts (rear in particular but front also) when I install the new chain and sprockets.

Not unless you round out the stupid shallow allen hole in the bolt head. If you do the initial breaking loose from the nut side, the chances of that happening are greatly reduced.
