    The bike came with the "Touring screen".
    I think it may be a bit too big for me. I'm thinking I'm going to try a stocker.

    Got a 2-into-1 as part of a swap with spencergt66.

    Pretty easy to mount. Hit the Y-pipe with some rustoleum hoping it will keep some rust off.

    I had some header wrap laying around and I was bored waiting for the parts so I decided to have some fun. I hope this will help keep temperatures down when commuting in the Summer. I'll install a second radiator fan come Spring as well.

    Got an Adventure Tank as well, that goes on tomorrow. :D

    Header pipe wrap. Baaaad idea: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=731286

    The additional heat kills the pipe, usually in one season.

    From this other post, it seems our headers aren't the best out there... I've had 3 Ducatis with wrapped headers (rear/horiz cylinder is perfect for cooking my eggs) and I have never had any issue.

    I relocated my side stand. CJ Designs, nice kit.

    I get the bash plate painted I can go ding up the pain in the desert now.

    And yes I disabled the side stand switch. I'm old enough to have once upon a time kick started motorcycles because that was the only way they fired and there weren't ANY safety items. The thing even shifted on the right side as god intended. :lol3

    Of corse he was British. :poser

    Fitted my 3rd water pump, the first lasted 20000km and the second another 86000. Lets hope this one lasts even longer :D

    Also a T63 was fitted in the front in the quest for the rear's 908 best partner :wink:

    Cracked by generator plug, so I fixed it. :lol3

    It's a KLR solution to the problem, but the other solution was to park the bike until the new one shows up, so . . . . :1drink

    CPR Fabrication is just starting to make a new stainless header for the 950/990. Nice stuff, but quite expensive: http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/ExhaustSystems.html

    That's quite the understatement! :D

    I'm sure it's one of those "you get what you pay for" things, but that's a lot of $$$ for my sad pockets. :cry

    Wow...


    I finally finished up my bi-xenon conversion. Not the greatest pics, but at less than $100 all said and done, I think it's a better investment than the euro headlight.

    I just returned from a 1.000 km trip to take my first enduro course. It was great fun. Everything new to me. Tons of things to practice now.
