So...um...I've having an unexpected tech day at my house right now.

What I thought would be a simple 10-minute job has evolved into 2 hours of labour with no end in sight....

This was going to be a simple relay install so my 12V socket will turn off with the engine....and I haven't even reached the wiring yet!
I'd like to Nominate Suzuki for the WORST FUCKING FAIRING DESIGN IN THE WORLD!
Not only does the fairing come off in 20 pieces, each held on with 10 completely inaccessable and easily stripped screws...they fucking GLUED and MELTED the peices together once they'd screwed them on!

If they're going to make a V-strom fairing this fucking complicated, WHY THE HELL COULDN'T THEY AT LEAST NOT MAKE IT LOOK UGLY AS SHIT????

Sure thing!
The Ninja is a piece of cake to work on, and the wiring is really simple.
I might even have an extra spare relay.

Ever had to change a seat on a Ducati Multi????? That will piss you off to no end.

I just posted a bunch of crap I have to sell. Now I think I may go start installing my SW Motech racks and Pelicans......woohoo!

Or

Since the rain stopped I may have to take a spin.......I think going for a ride wins......

Skippii, I forgot my bungee cords at home so pizza delivery is out unless I can get hold of some good tape or string. Let me know if you are doing anything around noon or if you are already finished cursing.

MMMM found some tape and mini bungees. Lunch?

Ya'll missed out on the pizza and 12V socket fun. More jabber than work but whats new. Good luck putting that DL1000 puzzle back together again. If you want some help cleaning out your garage, I will work for beer
