    Maybe you found another reason to disable the ABS when going onto dirt.

    Definitely a well thought out farkling. Does the larger rear sprocket affect the highway performance???

    Anyone have the pin-out for the Alarm connector? What I'm looking for is a wire that will tell me the high-beam is on under the seat.

    Dang, nice farkling.

    I was happy to just pick up a new (demo) Triumph Tall Adjustable windscreen for $115 yesterday. Seemed like a good enough deal to try it. I was going to do a Madstad but at the price if I don't like it I can get back out of it without a loss.

    tucson, AZ, It's a dry hate.

    One wire from one of the headlights (also seems to share low beam) seems to go back to pin 9 at the alarm connection but that is shared with some of the other lights as well.

    Looking for a small magnetic tank bag for a phone, glasses etc.. I just want something I can just throw on the tank (figuratively speaking) and head out. I have a Wolfman for trips but it's a strap model so a bit more of a PIA to fit than I'm looking for here...

    Cheers
    :freaky

    My wife likes her Bags Connection "Engage", easy on and off but you'd need the tank ring.

    Joe Rocket Manta fits very well and will hold everything you mentioned.

    I used the Rocket until I got the Triumph City tank bag and it just stays on all the time.

    I did think about that actually but I figured it would then interfere with the Wolfman tank bag I use on trips, hence I was leaning towards a magnetic bag.

    That's what I use, but I'm not really a tank bag fan. On long trips I use it a lot, but I can't get used to it when I stand up.

    Joe Rocket manta $50 at a local Suzuki dealer.

    That is why I mounted the manta backwards, wasn't in the way as much.
    What spoiler is that??
