    Clean or replace? That looks like a replace.

    It is waterproof. BikeMeters claims that it is encapsulated in epoxy, so moisture & vibration shouldn't be an issue. Time will tell.

    I almost put this LED volt meter on. It changes color based on voltage, but I figured the OCD in me wanted to know the #.

    Having options is a good thing!

    added a touratech light guard i got off another inmate from this site. i think they are ugly as sin but what ya gonna do? i have lost count of the number of headlights i have busted on my 640 from chasing people through the dez. the thought of that happening to this bike did not fill me, nor my wallet, with joy.

    Huge bubbles!!!! So ugly, i had to pinch them. I preferred the wrinkles. In any case, the day I bought the bike I knew it wouldn't be long before I would send it to the paint shop.... I dreaded the orange vynils and the orange high fender. I know some inmates love them, but mine made the bike look like it was sticking its tongue out. So for three weeks I did nothing but search this forum for inspiration, and once I saw Desert surfer's bike I saw the true aesthetic potential of my bike. Four weeks after buying my 950, I finally love the way it looks...
