    Seems someone has been feeding of my bike this winter.
    The only damage that I can find is the rubber sleeve around the temp switch on the radiator.

    It doesn't seem available as a loose item, only included in the wiring harness.
    Anyone has an idea on where to get one loose?

    That ain't nothing, I had a raccoon get in my shop, crawl under the cover of my old harley and make a nest out of my seat.


    That raccoon and I had one hell of a fight before he/she left.

    They're cute in the movies/pictures but very intimidating in an enclosed area until he/she pissed me off and I took off like granny from the Beverly Hillbilly's chasing that thing around the shop with a broom.:rofl

    Checked inside your airbox lately? Might want to if you've had a mouse or squirrel or the like snooping around.

    No exaggeration, the bear had been hibernating and "uncorked" or "unplugged" in the bedroom. The pile was 3' in diameter. This was NOT a small bear!

    Here's a funny video of the first time this bear moved in UNDER my house He came back later to move in.
