Not bad.
This is the LED tail light unit. Very compact. Very bright too.



These turn signals are hella bright.



The pannier racks make for a big crashbar.

Why do you cover up your license plate? You let everyone on the road in Nevada see them....why not us?

I went with Sicass after a day of trail in Maine.
Lost the plate and OEM turn signals.

Indeed. They could pass for OE.

Thanks for taking the time to share the pictures.

I think he meant "hella" in the sense that they're very bright. Like, "helluva bright".

Tres brilliante.

Well, here's something curious...
I had the battery out for over a week.
I just noticed after all this, my odometer has returned to 000000.
I didn't that was supposed to happen on a DOT vehicle.
My RFS bike keep their ODO.
Does the digital speedo on the 2009 have a backup battery?

I had the ODO on my 2009 690r also reset to zero one time when I was installing something electric. Don't remember what, but everything else was fine. I remembered the mileage that was on the bike when it reset so I add that on to my maintenance log. It is NOT supposed to reset!

never seen it myself. even with odo's that are unconnected on the shelf for months already.

Did you leave the contact on and battery out? Or was the contact switched off too?

It does not even use a battery for retaining the odo, it writes it to a sort of flash card. no need for power to remember.

I had it in all sorts of powered up down conditions. Between the tank work and getting the stabilizer pin to not interfere with the the key lock.
Funny thing was the tripmeter was NOT cleared. It still retained It's reading. I must've inadvertently gone thru some clearing sequence.
