Tried to get off the steeringhead lower bearing.. Tried until it got dark.. In the Garagenight video they do it so easily.. I think I'll just cut the whole thing off with an angle cutter.. (I don't need the triple anymore -as it's bent)

ABS on off switch

I'd like to hook up my ABS to an on/ off switch. Does anyone have information on how to do it? I'm mostly interested in the tie into the ABS itself, I can probably figure out hooking up a switch (says Homer).

Thanks,

A winter of total content.

Took her off the road and carried out some much needed tlc.

New Galfer pads front
Carbon wrap on mudguard and glove box lid (paint flaking off)
Painted RR screen (Graphic as on tanks to be added)
Carbon wrap mud shield (Piaa mounted)
New Battery (1st replacement...not bad considering the horror stories on here)
Wemoto folding mirrors (No vibration blurring!!!)
2nd 4" Spall fan
New head bearings
Swingarm bearings were good just needed more grease (Pivot slid out easy!)
powder coat on crashbars and racks
Clear anodised subframe and foot peg hangers
Stripped and clear coated rad guard
New BAJA DESIGNS rear light (Very Bright!)
New wiring harness for accessories via a Blue Sea 6 way fuse block and ACC2 activated relay (Very neat)
Forks refurbed and stiffer springs (this has transformed the feel of the bike)
Shock refurbed Both by On Track Racing Chris Byron (Top top bloke!)
Lots and lots of cleaning!!!!

From this...

To this


And for anyone who doubts the quality of Wings cans....those are 5 years old and look like new!

Started it and it didn't blow up. Still have a little work left on it, but I couldn't wait any longer to see if I didn't do something horribly wrong.
