    Ok so a hint.

    I built one of them back in the late 50's, or was it the early 60's…
    I forget.

    No soup for you!

    You spoiler of fun you… :lol3

    And the only reason YOU know is because that IS a picture of your secret hidden electro-lair, where all the electrons are neatly arranged and under control for those top secret and sensitive 'experiments' (here jimmy, hold these 2 wires…).

    OOOhhh Good one. :thumb

    Unfortunately he spoiled the answer for the rest of our at home audience… :fitz

    Lets see if he (or anybody else) knows what the device in the foreground on the right with the gold top and red sides is…

    I'm not sure that tickling or a stimulating experience would be an accurate description of the result if that device were in close proximity to 'the boys'. :evil


    Thanks for your participation.
    Don Pardo what do we have as a consolation prize?

    Next! :deal

    This thread makes me glad I was an early adopter.


    Its worth the wait guys, particularly on a slant 4 K1200GT.

    It was a marked improvement, more so than my R1100GS

    A pain to install (remove plastic, lift fuel tank, install with long needle nose) but my gas mileage even went up 4 mpg according to the computer. Driveability much improved.


    Couple vintage tube testers hanging around in that photo up there...
