    I know this people, they work very well, nice stuff.
    My only concern is if the rear brake calliper can hi in it when the suspension is fully compressed. I had to shortened the None exhaust because thisÂ… but probably they testedÂ…

    Hi all and greetings...

    For those inmates who have mounted LED light bars under the headlight on their S10.. what did you "hang" them off?

    Did you use the 4 plastic "lug / loops" under the headlight?

    If you did.. have they stood up to vibrations off road.

    And if you didn't.. how did you mount them?

    For those of you who have pushed a mini-fuse into the clutch switch...


    -Which one did you use? I've read 7.5, 10, 15, and 20 amp.

    -When I go to O'Reilly's or AutoZone, do I just ask for a "mini-fuse"?; Will they know what I'm talkin'-about?

    Amp rating does not matter, there is probably only mere miliamps actually going through the switch.

    Its an "ATO mini" blade type fuse.

    There are two 10mm head bolts. Each just under the headlight. I can not see
    a factory use for the bolts. I used those to hold the light bar bracket. So far so good.
    The bike was used in Moab on the White Rim Trail and some other more mild off road.

    Remember to twist the blades sideways first.

    If you shove the fuse in from the wire side you do not have to twist the blades. You don't even have to unplug the connector if you do it from that side.

    Thanks for the responses, Gentlemen (especially MeefZah, for the quick response).

    Well, I guess I'm gonna' be doin' it the "hack" way, as I will be using the method that is spread all over the i-net (I hope GB doesn't mind me using his pic)...




    It's raining, in San Antone, today. And, the streets inside of Loop 410 will be like greased owl shit. So, I'm thinkin' that today is not the day to re-learn the "new" throttle on my ST. :deal

    So, I will probably try it on a drier day...

    It's cool. Most of us already had our suspicions. Why else would they call yours Closet Blue?
