Oops. that was a typo. When given the opportunity, I give as much money as possible to Apple.
Glad to hear it. I thought you were cheaping-out.
We're at Page 50 with almost 60,000 views. Craziness.
Denali Sound Bomb almost done installing and lots more electronic goodies on their way including a 2-channel dash cam, wireless iPhone charger, additional power outlet and cable management bits.
Of course! We’ve all asked ourselves, “If money was no object...” and you’re answering it for us!
I tried a lot of stuff that could have worked and together it all worked but who knows what exactly was the best fix.
PB Blaster every half a day from Sunday - Wednesday
Ordered a manual Impact Drive
Ordered extended Torx heads
Ordered Wera Key Torx set (with that fatty head on one side)
The extended Torx set still didn't work. it just wasn't fully seated enough. I went in sideways with the Wera set (non fatty side) and got it to turn half a turn. This was enough to move the luggage rack under the bolt to give me a straight shot directly down at the bolt. I then use the Fatty-bottom Wera head on the L-Key thing and slowly turned it very carefully for 10 minutes and it finally came free.
You think this bolt is okay to use again?
Just kidding!!!! LOLOLOL
Phew... on a lot of levels!
For a stubborn Loc-tite'd bolt I keep one of these on the bike. Pinpoint flame allows you to have less worry around plastics.
Also works as a portable soldering iron, fire starter, ect.
LINK!?!?!? I was looking for this. Lots of Soldering irons but those are hobby level and really tiny with extra stuff like a stand I didn't need.
Looks like in a pinch it could be a portable WMD...
...you get it. May the force be with you my brother.
I’ve been working on the bike all day. Moved the Sonos downstairs. Installing easy stuff I already have videos of. Very chill. Having a blast. Photos later.
Much easier when not making videos!
Risers anti-vibe from Rox
ZTechnik windscreen stabilizer
SWMotech mirror extenders
Stubborn bolt remover.
I think that videos problaby make the task four times longer. I thought it was double but risers took 15 minutes even with cable re Routing. Easily an hour to do a video of this.
Adam, when you talk about the fatty end of the L key are you referring to what wera calls the ball end ? Thanx
Adam, What Tender do you use?
I use this for both bikes It was on sale for $85 when I bought it
I use this on my car - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00068XCQU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
We have new batteries in our cars but today it's -1F so cranking really suffers at that temp. it's even worse when in January it'll be -20F so having the battery hooked up to a tender really helps.
Unfortunately, Volkswagen never thought to put any place on the block for a heater so we don't have engine block heaters on our cars. most people up here don't run them. I just switch to a lower winter weight to help cranking on the oil.
Adam, The following two threads have been viewed about a million times in total:
You’re absolutely right that many BP type things only work for a little while. You’re also correct that the R1200LC bikes have extensive tables of multiplicative and additive long term fuel trims, so its likely your bike will adapt. And the LC bikes are pretty well fueled IMO.
However, you’re wrong about the AF-XIED. It will permanently make fueling 2-8% richer (selectable) by coaxing the BMSX to richen the long term trims. You’ll notice improved torque and throttle response at low-mid RPMs. It will cool the exhaust somewhat.
