One of this first things I did was drop the oil pan to check for gunk in the engine and check the oil pickup. I've heard these can loosen up. All was well inside along with changing all the fluids, that included the brake fluid. Next on the project was to pull the tranny and lube the splines, plus since the rear frame was off why not powder coat it??? Then a custom muffler guard for the Sito Muffler out of plain metal rods. Look here for link http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=387232 Then some eyebrows for the large PIIA's as I was getting a glare from the top edge. Then reinforcing stock racks for the Happy trails panniers. Gussets added. And a rear bar, stood up to a good crash, but probably should be bigger. Happy Trails bags mounted plus new paint on tank and side covers. I had the original blue tank scaned for a color match. This tank is from a R100GS with the seat tab cut off. Cut down side cover for muffler and accessory plug added. 1st installment hope I haven't bored anyone w/ the repost!!
