I was just in there today. I work just down the street from there. Kyle's a good guy, but it's just Kyle and a couple other folks inside the place. Chances are the light was just something branded that they never really made. I would think the bulb itself could be analyzed and a replacement found. Post a pic of what's left or go look at ProCycle's website and see if you can ID it. How did it "implode"?

I noticed the rubber ball mounts on my Ram mount were crushed/distorted after I cranked it down enough to hold the hard plastic on the end of the Double Take mirror. Actually it still wasn't holding. As soon as I got going fast enough the wind would push them back. It seems like it's just that the end of the mirror segment is just very hard plastic that the ram system can't find enough friction to hold it. So I decided to try dipping those hard plastic ends in rubber


I did 3 dips (dip-dry, dip-dry, dip-dry), but I think just dipping it once will do the job. I set them up a tiny bit forward of where I wanted them. The wind pushed them back a bit. Now they're perfect. They stay put, but will still move when impacted.

Just seemed a bit odd that I have all the paperwork leading in that direction yet he says they never made anything but stators and such. I am not really too sure how to figure it out the one I have now (Sylvania 7506) lights the lens and plate but I get no brake light actuation. I donr thinks he is stonewalling me or lying just not sure how to figure it out. To answer your question: my light wqasnt working at all so when my friend took the lens off it was the socket still plugged in and a bunch of glass dust that used to be the bulb. Found the bottom of the suspension a couple of times .

These don't move at over 100 and work well, you look under your arm. They are available here:

I was looking at those, seems strange. I am worried I am too wide for those and I will just be looking at my body.

I use the large 280. I tried the inside mirrors but I am too wide. I tried under the bars but my large tank gets in the way

I beg of you, is there someone who can test a handful of CDI unit for me?!?! I still get no spark from my bike after changing out everything. I am not 100% sure that any of the CDIs are even good. I am chasing a ghost!! If I can eliminate the CDIs as being the problem then I can move onto other things. I will pay shipping both ways and give you some $$ or something for your time.




What is the likelihood of the flywheel magnets going bad?! Sounds pretty much impossible to me. The FW on my bike has been lightened but I say it is not the FW. The reason I ask is that is the ONLY component I have not changed yet. I do have a spare stock FW, maybe I will try it just because. Thanks again guys.

I'm not sure of how to test a cdi but if you send them to me I will swap them onto my bike and see if it still runs. Best option I can come up with, maybe someone else can do more but if you need to just send me a pm and I'll try them.

Yeah, this is what I had in mind. The only sure-fire way to test it is on a bike that is know running. Swap the cdi and if it fire up then it is not the cdi. I'll pm ya! Thanks

Yeah I can do that without a problem. I even just converted my seat to a dzus on setup so I would get to play with my new tool less electrical changes.
