Pretty minor compared to most the stuff in here but as I was peening in the new clutch bolts on the Ural yesterday I remembered making this a baziilion years ago as a young lad.

Cool thread, Richardo. Not sure if this is the direction you intended it to go but its been a good trip.

I love the masterful chamfering on the leading edges-much safer that way, right?

I sell then for $25.00 plus shipping.

My XM Radio, Garmin GPS, and radar detector mount.


To see the idiot lights I have to sit up a bit to look over the GPS. Fuel and temp gauge and clock are seen through the window cut out in the radar detector mount.



The Ricky Risers made for a great mounting point. The black material was a block of teflon machined by my friend Mike (The Rackman) Roberts to fit and match the radius on the Ricky Risers, A perfect fit. A matching piece is on the inside of the risers with a .015 gap between the two so it will pull up tight and stay in place. I did all the sheetmetal. It has been a GREAT mount for over 3 years.

Long time ago... I wanted to mount some Hella horns on my GS. Down low, out of the way. I fabricated a plate of aluminum, looked like this:





Still working, does the job nicely. I "make" stuff everyday with software, but nothing so fancy to merit posting about here.

Cool thread, Richardo. Not sure if this is the direction you intended it to go but its been a good trip.
I remeber that project. We made a center punch and a chisel. They dissapeared from my tool box a long time ago.

Ok,.... may have used a plasma cutter for a few seconds

Laugh Zubber custom earphone inserts: True penny-tech

Hi;
I'm waiting for Santa to bring me a set of Etymotic ER6i earbuds to enjoy music on my 1200GS without the wind noise. I was riding this weekend and got a bit frustrated with the amount of wind leakeage in my cheap earbuds. I stopped at Wall-Mart, hoping to find some special custom earplug goop in the Sporting Goods section - no luck. The toy aisle happened to be next to sporting goods and I found: Zubber!

Zubber is a Play-Doh-style toy for kids that can make "rubber" parts in any shape they choose. It is a two-part kneaded mixture that stiffens (not truly hardens) in around 20 minutes. Sitting in the Subway up front, I mixed up some Zubber and packed it around the earbuds. I then stuffed them into my ears and tried to get the Zubber to go everywhere. In 20 minutes, the stuff felt like rubber. I've never had $500 custom-fitted ear pieces, but these did cut the wind noise significantly. My iPhone music was easier to hear. The Zubber pack I bought had enough to stuff a dozen ears and cost $7.

I've also asked Santa for a 3" Touratech windscreen extension to further cut the windnoise.

Craig
