    I mounted my lights higher. Hopefully they will work more like they did on the KLR.

    The clearance looked close. But after some extreme brake test there still appears to be almost 2" of clearance.

    That is almost a stoppie. The rear was up and the front slid and I'd did not hit. So I hope I will be ok.

    I placed another order thru Partzilla. Fingers are crossed.

    If they respond back as Backordered I'll try maybe one more.

    Just talked to Dennis. Maybe some of the internals of his old switch might work w/mine.

    Beantop,

    I'd be up for that. Money iz kinda tight recently though. I'd prolly have to wait till next year to commit to those classes.

    Although, for now I'd buy enough to snorkel.

    Snorkel, goggles, and fins.
