Remove the key from the fuel cap , with the cap off the bike , then take out the two screws holding the bottom on to the fuel cap , remove the locking tabs , and then put it back together , real easy.

Relatively. I went with the black handguards because I thought they would contrast better with the blinkers when they were lit, making them easier to see.
Thanks for the info. Heading out to the garage now

Filled up today after my ride last weekend.

I had the GPS on the bike and factored in last Sunday's miles
and what it took today to get to the pumps.

168.22 miles from last fillup.

2.817 gallons

59.71 MPG with another .7 gallons or so left in reserve.

That's about another 40 miles worth...

Speedhealer DRD question

Got my 12oclockLabs Speedhealer DRD. No wiring install instructions so... I see the 3-wire plugs to plug into the harness, but I do not see that style plug in the headlight fairing. Is this another cases of having to remove the right panel and radiator to get the plugs in the harness?

Doing a GPS/Speedo check run with 12/47 and knobbies, I get 55 GPS/71 Speedo and maxed out at 74GPS / 95 speedo. Quite a bit of error.

No takers from friends to join me, so I did a solo run today. 135 miles and about 5 hours.

Click Here for the google maps route (or close to it).


Decided to run back and forth across the Continental Divide today.





Springtime flowers are everywhere. I didn't run into any snow at all. Minor sections of mud. Everything is drying out nicely.






Just when I thought I'd found a new homestead, I realized there was a beetle-kill tree right outside the bedroom window. Unacceptable! I moved on...




Some nice Highland Cattle along one of the routes.

The plug is under the seat along the top left frame rail.

I've got pictures up on wrrdualsport - http://www.wrrdualsport.com/reviews-...s/97-speedodrd

The plug goes under the seat. Take off the seat and left side panel. You will see two different white plugs that look like they might work. The one you want is towards the front of the bike, right near the frame and close to where the seat meets the gas tank shroud.

Don't know which version you have, but here is the instruction page for versions 2.4 - 2.7 and for version 3.0.
Use the calculator page to determine you % correction (plug in your speedo display and your GPS display) and you will get a step by step instructions for your %.

Thanks guys. I have a Version 3 unit and I have the programming sheet. There was just no info supplied on the where the plug was on the bike. No problem now that you've identified it for me.

I know how to set it from using the online calculator page. Needs a -22.4% correction

I used HDB lower clamps, with some rise, since I bought the HDB topclamp and guards. Paul sells just the lower clamp (risers), though. Here are the order pages for the short, tall, and custom versions ($37.50 each). These are all for fatbars. I'm not sure if he makes lower clamps for 7/8".

I agree with dirthauler. The ROX risers are hard to beat if rise is all you want to add. You don't need to change top clamp, lower clamp, or bars (unless you want to). If you might change from the 7/8" to fatbars in the future, there is even one version that has an insert that allows them to work with either size. I've not used them, but it seems to me it would be nice to have the ability to fine tune the bar position (forward, back, etc.) like the rox allow.They also have version from 1 1/4" up to the 2", so you have some choices in rise. I'd recommend picking a bar bend that you like first and then buying a riser that goes well with it to get you your overall increase in rise.

On their website:
Rox pivoting risers
Rox anti vibration risers
Rox block risers (not sure if there is one that fits our bikes)
.
.
Thanks!

I really need a cheap solution. I'd love to get the whole HDB setup but can't really afford to. Gonna use the stock bars and then upgrade to fats when I break them. The Rox Elites look good for that.

You need some smarter friends
Very nice pics. May have to try that route next time I pass through there on the way to Alberta.

Nice ride report

Chadx, nice pic's looks like a very beautiful place. I still remember my continental divide ride and wouldn't mind doing it again going South to North. Thanks for sharing.

Be sure to watch this...WRR killer?!?!!?

Got this from the Doc on the Mobius trip. Sounds a bit like he his pulling our legs... BWM-KTM jount venture on a 250-400cc ADV bike... I would almost believe it if it were BMW-Husqvarna being they are the same company. I think he may be having a good laugh about now...

It would be good to have some competition with new ADV bikes. It makes everyone better...
