Too funny.

Pretty sure I drilled the holes that the pin goes through that holds the peg in the new part.

But regardless, you will immediately find out which pin is bigger than which hole.
And you are simply using a bit that is a little bigger than the bore that is already there. So no need to use any special tool or drill or template. It's freehand work.

Wish I could recall exactly. But I think I was 53 or 54 when I did it. I'm 55 now.
It's not getting better. :)

Also you need to check your spokes and tighten them to spec.

For the pegs...

I drilled both holes. The two holes on the new brackets are too small. The one that attached the new bracket to the bike just needs the powder coating removed. No nig deal. The hole that the peg attaches to is much to small. It took a bigger drill bit but was no big issue. The only other adjustment was on the exhaust side. I put a rubber gasket between the stock mounting bracket and the new peg lowering bracket. This filled a small little gap.

Put it this way...I was able to install them with my leg braces on, my cane in one hand. Its easy.

Also...in regards to my handicapped plate. I am amazed at the level of dislike and anger people have towards it. Its amazing the looks you get and the fact that people will flat out tell you, "if you need handicap plates you obviously shouldn't be riding a motorcycle, or your abusing the system." its really pissing me off. Instead of looking at the positive and overcoming difficulties they get mad at me.

Hey Geology,
You have already proved you can overcome obstacles.
Morons are very tiny obstacles. In fact, they are ignorable.

The funny thing is in many countries, if you are on 2-wheels, you can park (and ride) with almost impunity. Other cultures seem to happily accommodate advantages to scooters and motorcycles.

Raising the Rear

It seems like a 25 mm lift with shorter dogbones is a popular option. I'm in the process of setting up a new Ohlins shock for my S10 and we made some internal chnages that, with the spring rate and preload used, results in a 22 mm lift.

After fitting, I slabbed 400 kms home, and apart from ride improvements, thought I noticed an increase in vibration. Not only hands and feet, but the Montana GPS decided to routinely reorient the screen which it didn't do before.

I've just refitted the stock shock, test ridden, and the extra vibes seem to have gone away, with the GPS happy again.

I'm attributing the vibes to the increase in operating angle of the universal joint at the back of the gearbox.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_joint
"The Cardan joint suffers from one major problem: even when the input drive shaft axle rotates at a constant speed, the output drive shaft axle rotates at a variable speed, thus causing vibration and wear."

Anyone out there notice an increase in vibes when you lifted your rear end?

Thanks

Thanks!

I have been running the Shinko 705 on the front and have been happy with it only after the first 200 miles. Those first 200 miles were a bit on the high side of a pucker factor to say the least, but ran in and was fine after that. I have over 7000 miles on it now and looks like it could go another 7000 easy. Added a K60 on the rear at the same time and it will be gone in another 1500-2000? Happy with it too. 80% of my riding with this bike is 2-up. 80% paved/20% dirt.

I found this tonight on ebay although
this does not help our local dealers but.................
This looks like a deal to me. Less than $200 at your door for a set.

Old Git Ray is in town!

As many of you know Old Git Ray has been touring the States and Canada with his
wife Karen and are now starting to head South for Mexico and into South America.

He had mentioned he would like to meet up in Salt Lake to say hi. He called me from
Montana and was dropping down through Idaho. I suggested we spend the weekend
at the vacation home on the Utah/Idaho border. He was all in on that.

I'd given him the codes to get in, just that he forgot the house one. We were coming
in later. As we pull in there is Karen standing alone in the dark. Ray was out trying to
get phone service to call me. I think she was doing the pee-pee dance so we got her in
the house and then went to look for Ray.

This was in my garage...... Dafoole would be so proud.



I had to have my picture taken with something that would actually make even me look small.



My daughter and a friend were coming up for the day and wanted to get wet. Ray and Karen
agreed to come along. It was overcast and threatening rain. Ray is the ultimate good sport and
agreed to try a knee board.

I don't know how you turn this,


into this....... THAT"S a splash.



Ray and Karen. Try and find a photo where he doesn't have that huge shit eating grin.













Yeah, this big ole moose was in the foothills we were out riding in. Ray kept wanting to go
get his Tenere and trail ride.

My wife and I because I had the right T-shirt for this shot.



He is too modest for me to tell you all why his new nickname is 'Super Ray'.
You have to get him to tell you his travel stories. No way should this guy be alive.

Really fun weekend and always a pleasure to meet a true ADV rider.
