Can't say enough about the windshield. I've been at high speeds (75 mph) in high side and front wind and have always found that it helps stabilize the bike. No issues.

I did a full write up. If you have an Acerbis tank, make sure you get the brackets for the larger tank. See the below thread for details.

Been cleaning all the parts and I remembered this post as I inspected the side case. Added it to the parts list.

Are you happy with the end product and how it performs? I don't want to get into premium gas and will stay with stock to avoid it. One question from a very part time mechanic: Do I understand correctly that you did not have to resleeve. Just bore the OEM sleeve and hone.

Thanks for the info
John

A break bleeder will cost you under $20 at auto zone. Make sure you get the one with the pump gauge. It will make things a lot easier. Ben

You need a power bleeder (bikes are not as easy as cars to get started) syringe style can be found cheap & will do the trick, or send me a pm maybe I could take a ride up your way. P.S. the good power bleeders are $30-$40 pump type(I have both) P.P.S. still hope to ride with the baisley boys someday(got shorted at 7 mountains)

did ya get your brakes bled? I am sticking to the roads & very lite trails for winter, maybe I will try some ice ridin on the lakes (already have the set up never used). Those scrambles seem like you would need $600 worth of trellborg tires or you would ruin your screws everytime out?? PS HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all
