What grips are those? I like the lack of dial controller.
Koso Apollo. Click.
The Koso's hidden control circuitry is a nice feature, even if it does command a 100% price premium when compared to the BikeMaster heated grips on my other motorcycle.
PM me if or when you buy the Kosos. There's a few installation tips that I'll pass along.
Can I drop a PM too? I might grab these for the V85 TT I want. Even more expensive in Canada
Sure. Happy to share lessons learned.
May I suggest you start a thread on those heated grips?
I don't need them at this point but they do look interesting. I had no idea they existed.
wired in an electric heater.220 extension cord so it’s mobile on my scissor bike lift .
A bit small for my garage if real cold ? but will be fine for taking off the chill .
Added a top box to the thumper. A HF Apache case I had lying around the garage.
Built a dead deer hauler out of junk princess Barbie bikes, and rearranged the dash on my CRF250L.
I built a Garmin mount bracket out of an ice cube tray for PC two months ago. I managed to make at the worst possible angle for glare. Today I rebuilt the masterpiece to get more angle.
Tried out the compressor that finally arrived. It makes the breaker box that's outside of my garage and feeds the closest 4-5 garages go off. Landlord's going to look into it shortly.
I took a much-needed vacation day for some 'me' time. Once I finished the 'must-do' chores....fix weedeater and trim lawn, fix washing machine that kept going out of balance (damned Samsung!), vacuum the house.....I turned my attention to the garage, where I installed a new-to-me radar detector on the K1600GT. Would have been a 90 minute job where I not the type to analyze and figure out cable runs, where to hide harnesses, etc. Interestingly, a good number of 'how-to' suggestions came from owners of RT's. And the RT has a much different dash than does the K16. Regardless, it was good therapy time!
Cleaned up the screen on my 990, and installed the sticker from the KTM rally.
Topped off the oil and coolant for a maybe short play day before I change oil and begin some other playing around.
Finished replacing all of my shop light t8’s with LED bulbs. I had originally ordered a box of “clear” and found that I did not like the shadow and on an 8 foot ceiling they seemed to be in my line of sight when entering that area (annoying).
Moved the clears to the front area, 16 foot high ceiling, added another box to the front fixtures and went to the “frosted” lights in the rear, low ceiling shop.
STOP! That's enough for me right there!
The weedeater has been on a fast lately, running badly, until it didn't run at all. Cleaned the air filter and gave the mixture screws another quarter turn out, and it's running stronger & better than it has in years (or maybe ever).
When 2 stroke equipment won't start, it can be stressful!
That boy needs an anger management class, and I mean NOW!
All that violence when one shot from the .44 should do it!
He must REALLY hate weeds.
Always got a kick out of seeing that era bike that had the passenger pegs mounted on the swing arm. I chuckle to myself visualizing the passenger riding down a bumpy dirt road. Anyone who has experienced it want to chime in.
Tonight's garage visit:
I installed the shifter shaft support. Will order the cover after she runs/moves/drives/backfires... This is also for a future project.
Added a bracket for the rear brake reservoir. '77 GS750 had an integral style M.C.
Mounted the remote breather filter. Nice match to the pods.
Had an old Jeep head light. Turned out well.
