    The trick is to work from front to back and do both sides as you go. That's how I did it and I've had to do it a couple of times ( denser foam ). Pull it tight but not so tight it makes waves in the foam. I also sprayed the seat pan with adhesive. I've logged lots of very hard miles on this and I love it! [​IMG] don't forget to put the plastic thing on this [​IMG] and here too [​IMG] here's a back shot [​IMG] it really isn't hard, just take your time and keep checking to make sure it's even.

    I'd have better luck translating Chinese than understanding that. So what are you say? They're bad stock or bad with the capacitor? Or just leave it alone like I have for the last 7500 trouble free miles?

    Looking back it kinda sounds like I'm trying to help an impotent guy work through his problem and put a rubber on. I just read it to my wife and she laughed too. The JD tuner sticker does look like the gay flag! They should've picked better colors!

    Thanks for the advice -- It will at least keep me entertained while I'm "starting at the top"!

    It explains why the bike shuts down when there's no battery. And shows there's no crazy spikes in voltage as someone speculated. The bike can be more reliable with a simple capacitor added to the system, this shows it graphically. I believe it also may explain why they have so many batteries fail (Shitty charging method).

    What Brandon is proving is if (when) your trouble free battery fails, you will be able to get a jump start and motor home if there is a capacitor wired in

    Hey Brandon, what should the cap rating be?.

    I was stuck in the woods once with a dead battery and it would even take a jump start from a truck. I will look into wiring one of these capacitors in. Thanks guys.

    Same here. My bike was only months old when the stock Varta exploded and left me stranded 30 miles out from the event start. I was missing a good old carb at that point. Luckily the sweep crew was there to save the day.

    Getting stranded remains my one concern with this bike. If this works it would be great.

    Ever since I put the new battery in I hook it to the tender until fully charged and then unplug it. I've had this battery for 7500+- mile (1.5 years) and test it often. Its always 100%. The battery that shit the bed was stock and never changed out when I bought the bike as leftover 2.5 years after it was built. It lasted for 200 miles (30 days)

    The battery that is currently in mine has been a trouble free replacement for the original too, but one thing I know is that it will fail someday. They all do.

    I think the FI bike are a bit harder on the batteries. Being that yours only starts the bike and i would think the stator runs the lights, your battery lead a very easy life.

    Yes! A nice "How To" video would be helpful.

    I can't believe they used playdough bolts for the subframe and footpegs
    I can't believe they took away the compression adjustments on the front shocks in 2008
    I can't believe it's impossible to find neutral on that transmission if standing still
    I can't believe... :lol3

    Post up a more detailed writeup of your fix, Brandon :clap
