    Rebuilt swingarm, removed rear lowering blocks and replaced shock mount bolts with proper material, new front and rear engine mounts, new engine stabilizer links, fixed loose shift linkage, new spark plugs, new clutch cable, new exhaust gaskets, installed stock mufflers, new tires, clean, inspect and repack wheel bearings with new seals, flush and bleed brakes, fixed non-working turn signal, fabbed up a new inner mud guard for the rear fender, welded up a broken saddlebag bracket, replaced some rotten fuel and vacuum hoses, lubricated a bunch of hinges, removed the stupid hypercharger air cleaner and put on a proper S&S setup. Put in a new battery. Clutch adjustment has been giving me fits, I think the oversized handgrips might be having an effect, so I need to order a set of stockers. My front brake switch wasn't working, turns out the plunger is missing for some reason, so I need one of those as well. Need to hunt down a lever for the heel part of of the shifter, mine is wallered out. Low on the list of priorities is to get the fuel gauge working. Been removing stupid chrome bits and doing some deep cleaning as I go along.

    The plunger was out of the front brakes as a safety measure.

    The brakes work, they just don't trigger the stoplight. The throttle cables look newish, so I think whatever ham-fisted mouth-breather did that job had something to do with it.

    Hey, I'm a ham-fisted mouth-breather and I didn't touch your bike, so leave me out of this

    Wanna work out a trade for a big KTM with a non-working rear brake light switch? :D

    You still looking for one? Lots of deals on Evos out there.

    Sorry, I seem to have misplaced my Nordic wrench set. :doh

    No, I just bought a heat pump and furnace instead :bluduh

    If Jane had more interest in riding with me I'd be looking for a touring Evo or a Wing or something, but the truth is she doesn't join me for more than a couple hundred miles a year so it just doesn't make sense.
