    Maybe a dumb question but why does this look so different from the Camhead shot taken by Bracky? Would that be the difference from an 1150 to a 1200...or a Hexhead to a Camhead, or...? :ear

    It appears it’s a 03 1150GS from his profile.

    Maybe you should try some RUSH at 7am. I find its more soothing with my morning coffee!

    Thanks for the hard work, can't wait to get mine and try it out!!!!

    Well, for me that depends on which song. For some of their songs yes, for others noooo

    Off topic but I'd say it depends on taste in general. I've always been a huge Zep fan whereas in general, with a few exceptions I don't care much for Rush at all... Different animals altogether to my ear....

    Not being critical, but if that is your battery terminal in upper right...I hope that is not corrosion and if it was you cleaned the terminal and wires..just a thought.

    The terminal is fine. The corrosion was from my battery charger clamp. The battery discharges a bit if I don't ride for a week. I figure it'll be time for a new one soon.

    Well, there are about a thousand threads on which battery you must have.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Assembly report.

    Just a little one. I wasn't able to get to the thermistor sealing step yesterday. So I'm doing it today, a couple of hours from now. 24 hours later the batch gets final test and packaged for shipping. That's Wednesday.

    PS and JJ,


    Emails sent, hope you got the photos I took of installation of IICE Air [-20] on my '07 GSA. Or, I sent them who knows where. Not the best but graphic enough. Next hopefully they are what you need to sew together for a show and tell. If not I can re-do.


    Damnest thing is that the bike started after I installed the IICE Air! :wink:


    Full ahead for the Cool and Smooth.

    <BR>Thanks for the pictures, Phil! I looked at the first set, they looked fine. I'll go over the rest of them later.

    When its time for a new battery I'll just start a fresh "which battery is best for my bike" thread. Why bother with searching when I can be spoon fed a cornucopia of options ranging from Wamart lawn mower batteries to whatever DARPA has recently developed.
