J.
Don't have the part numbers on hand this second but the cost is about 335$
You need 2 front brake lines off a 03/04s (I have a high fender)
Banjo seals dual banjo screw for master cylinder (left side clipper is same screw)
1rear brake line off 03/04s and seals
Front speedo pick up off 03/04s

Then gut the bike remove all the crap and then the speed pu goes right th the speedo

I am also replacing the button for abs with a digital volt meter


All factory parts and a loss of 11 lbs more or less

I've been down that alley before with LED bulbs. Here are a couple of things that might be useful.

- use IC relay instead of stock relay. That way LED signals work with no resistors and it You go back to normal bulbs you won't notice a thing. Try one off eBay.

- LED lights generally do not have the same dept. Meaning on a bright day your old school bulbs are more visible. I noticed that when a friend rode my bike. I immediately switched back to stock bulbs.

I finally put on the Weld86/CJ Designs skid plate. CJ worked with Weld to make some improvements to the original design. Toyed around with maybe buying cheaper options, but we have some serious rock where I ride and I wanted a buy once cry once skid plate.

I have to say that the turn around on the order was very good. I knew the CJ was moving to a new shop and worried this would delay more order, but it didn't. He communicated via email with me and shipped promptly. Another interesting and funny thing was when I unpacked the box I found that he had packed it like it was made of glass. I've never seen so much plastic and bubble wrap, LOL.

It went on as easy as the stock unit. Quite possibly the easiest farkle to put on this bike. Here are some pics.

Superbrightleds sells LED replacement bulbs with resistors builtin.

Started riding from Sydney down to Melbourne taking the long way.


Earned my adv stick this trip.




Temporary back in business until I get back. But ready for little more riding.


And I have made a new friend.

G2

Finally got around to installing a G2 throttle cam with a 400 cam. It's been sitting on the shelf for 6 months. The install was very straight forward, and after a quick test ride, I like the results. The throttle isn't as sensitive putting around in first gear. I'm looking forward to using it in the slow-going rough stuff off-road. The throttle tube and cam are high quality items. Glad I did it.

No issues with the 1190 running like a dream I say thank you

Thanks, I'll have to look into that. I've gotten tired of soldering in resistors, I've done so many I'm almost a pro now! Got a link for an IC relay, I'm not sure which one to buy?

True but I've killed so many bulbs with falls, rocks, and water infiltration that I'll accept the compromise.

That's a really nice setup, tempting!



Had a bit more fun yesterday (all day!) running a wire from the battery's positive terminal to a relay behind the headlight. The relay is switched by the parking light (I have a euro light switch ), so I can turn of the relay (and the lights) when I want to use all the battery's juice for cranking and then turn lights and relay on when the bike is running.

The power wire then goes from the relay to a fuse box where I can attach all the accessories I need. Right now all I have are a couple of flood LEDs on the mirrors, again trying to make myself a little more conspicuous... Yea I know, good luck with that one. Next I'll wire into the fuse box the heated gear and a Screaming Banshee horn that has already found its place in the right side fairing, the GPS and some good spot lights.

In trying to fix a tweaked fender, spent some time looking around the front. Rerouted the speed pickup thingmajiggy as it didn't look quite like in the repair manual.

Anyone have a close up pic of the routing of the brake hose guide (the little metal thingy) that hold the brake line? I've seen a few variations. (for a 950 Adv)

Also, while there, I replaced the front brake pads and now the pads won't spread enough to get the wheel back on - more investigative work tonight….I'm going to open up the reservoir then use a helping chisel to get the pads to spread further.

At the very least, I'm getting more and more familiar with the bike each week….

remove some fluid first

Take half the fluid out of the master reservoir, find something thinner than the current gap (NOT smaller than the surface area of the brake pad, no screwdrivers or chisels or anything else smaller than the surface of the friction material), and rock it sideways to spread the caliper cylinders. I try to remember to do so with the disk whenever I remove a caliper from the fork leg.

Top up the fluid afterwards if required, or better yet empty the master reservoir at the start of the job, flush and fill at the finish. This is an easy and good time to flush the brakes, unless you just did it.
