Clean or replace? That looks like a replace.
Cleaning and install Dr Bean kit:)
+1 on the springs. It made a HUGE difference!!! And I love your color...!
Nice VM - is that waterproof? I haven't tested mine in a rainstorm yet..
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!
Received my 2005 950 S from the paint shop today...
Oh, and by the way, a huge thanks to DesertSurfer for the inspiration!
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.
Great clean look!
Well done, now head to the name change thread and get that sorted!
Once the paint dries... For the final ingredient it's time to add a little dirt... Then some more...and some more!!!
hard to tell viewing this pic
did your vinyl on the tank get the dreaded bubbles the orange owners (OEM orange jade metal flake paint scheme) experience (like mine=:-(

That or his paint is just falling off, like mine does. And then i drop it and i'm happy the bike did not have a perfect paintjob.
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...

Finished 3400kms on the Canadian prairie back roads.
COUNTRY U TURN.
Took it for a spin...
Saw some wildlife....
Messed with the bull and almost got the horns...
Took it to the lake....
Shot a canyon or two...
That looks like an ideal candidate for Dr Bean
