Nice looking Plate. The rear mounts look interesting too.

New Exhaust

Installed a set of Leo' Vince stainless exhaust on today,,, Fit was very good. Only problem I had was to have to shim out my Jesse Luggage.

Yep. The motor is at the shop now. The engine had been putting a little oily sludge in the overflow tank for some time, which I tried my best to blame on something other than head gaskets. Then, I did a 750 mile trip with the last 250 miles at a constant 80 mph. I had about an inch of motor oil in the overflow tank the next day. So she will get a quick top-end refresh addressing some basic known issues, and I'll be back in business shortly.

haha... those highway burners will put things to the test.

Just did 280 burner in the rain at the same clip, not fun... Time for oil change and antifreeze, tires and a good clean for me...

Got some spendy hoses there, ya should have popped for the stock clamps ($15) and a tool ($30)

Good luck on the refresh...

Might just dig into the oil pump and replace the spring and piston.

Thats not where it's supposed to be?... good eye... its 2 oz low...
I hope its not a WP issue, just put in an extra fancy one last spring... original went 40,000. guess i will know when i pull the oil filter.

Its time to take the radiator out and give it a good cleaning also, I'll get it up to snuff then, frigging high fenders.
