I will not for sure until I get the quote from the shop that does the laser cutting. Originally I figured it would be closer to $180 but if the laser cutter is reasonable it should be less. My target is $160.

Centerstands are one of those items that after you have it on you never really notice it. Hardly anyone will know you have one until you put the bike up on it. This is a good thing in that it usually doesn't detract from the good looks of the bike.

Thanks,

Mike

Help! I need a right side (battery) cover in any color or damaged condition, I am having another bike repainted and can't bring myself to paint over a perfectly good white side cover.

Send me a pm please, thanks,

Pretty sure they are 69ft. lbs. rear axle, 47 ft. lbs. front axle and 9 ft lbs for the 4 pinch bolts. I'll double check and if I'm wrong I'll let you know.

Thanks Mark!
I'm putting on new tires, tomorrow evening I'm instaling the front and Sat..the rear. The Haynes manual has the specs in nm and I wasn't sure of the conversion. Also do I need (blue) locktite on any of the fastners. The pinch bolts were not very tight so I thought maybe I sould use it on them.
Thanks again,
Bob

many torque wrenchs have both scales showing, no loctite is needed. 9 ft lbs won't feel like a lot, too much and you can pop the studs off.

With bike running and headlights on low beam, turn on indicator and it blinks properly but drop engine revs or stop to idle and the indicator just stays in the on position with no blinking until engine revs again.

Battery is new and bike starts easily straight away.

Is it the regulator that is causing a problem?

Well it should look exactly like the one I currently have in the flea market but it will be a while, good paint shops are never fast about getting work out.

From my experience. In a lot(all) of the older bikes, the rate of flash is controled by the current and resistance in the bulb element and flasher relay circuit. Including, of course, all of the wireing, connections and especially grounds(earth). Thats why when an elememt burns out on one side it stops flashing and the other side still works. There has to be the correct ballance of current, bulb resistance and flasher relay resistance or you will have flash rate problems. Sometimes you can clean the bulb sockets( and bulb contacts) or replace the bulb (different combinations of bulbs may cause different rates of flash) and/or replace the flasher relay. Some people replace their flasher relay with a newer style "electronic" flasher that interrupts the circuit independently of the type of bulbs used. Most local auto parts stores in the US have these, and sell the electronic flashers for around $15.00 IIRC. Here's another option.( http://www.customdynamics.com/trick_flasher.htm ) On my KLR I replaced the big, stick way out, in the way, signals with really cheap clearance lights and the cheapest relay ($3.00) I coud find. Works great!!!

modifications

Well It's really not a mod but it is the most important thing I have done to the bike so far

Bolted on the new shiny ugly gold license plate.
A short ride later to see if the mod helped it ride better, So far so good
