    Finished The Oil Change And Brake Adjustment On The 525, Yesterday. I Will Finish With The Rest Of That Today And It's Good To Go For The Season! The Other Day I Removed The S.a.s. And E.p.c. From The 950 And Took The Bike For A 100 Mile Ride In To Denali National Park And Back.

    But I Think Someone Would Notice It Missing. But It Sure Is Cool To Come Across A 44 Year Old Sled In The Middle Of Ak.
    Thanks For The Info

    Cut down my stock windscreen for a summer windshield. Still have My Hyde screen for it though.

    Very good power. Have not felt any of the fueling issues I've read about. Feels very light, both moving it around the garage and of course under way. Handling is excellent, although I've not really hung it out there yet.

    Fit and finish looks great. Comfort is good and on par with a GS (had one for 5 years). Leg room is good for me.

    Fairing and windscreen do quite well at hwy speeds. Can't say much more for now as I've not got too many miles on it.

    The Czech is no longer in the mail :D

    Got my pkg from the Czech Republic today. As someone who has gouged the crap out of my $2000 Husqvarna swingarm... I'm very happy to receive this for the 950 :deal

    I used silicone sealant to attach the blingy carbon fibre clutch cover to my '07 990 Adv. It hasn't fallen off in over 3 years.

    I cut some slots in the top and bottom. Cut a hose clamp and bent them to hook the carbonfiber then clamped them around the swing arm like a two stroke pipe gaurd.

    I stole the PC310 battery out of my K bike to replace the dying OE Yuasa, and after burning up the dirt roads around here, I ordered up some gizmos from Black Dog Cycle for the 950 SE.

    Looks nice Geek! :wink: How much did you pay for those babies? You got them on yet?? C'mon post the pics.
    A good silicone should be good to stick them on. I used it for my carbon fibre guards on the tanks on my old 950.

    where did you get these from and how much. My swing arm looks like crap and this is easier than refinishing it.
