Suzuki Savage has that too, but it's not bad with only 3" of total rear travel.
One was broken off and the other was replaced with a bolt when I got it. So I decided to replace them. Once I did, I realized that it is damn near the stupidest idea of all time in terms of motorcycle design.
Worked on my friends TJ again.
Decided she wanted a blacked out grill. It's not as easy as on my JK, the grill supports the radiator, holds the headlights, and is bolted to the front fenders and inner fenders
Thought a bit late about a before picture.
After the grill was out.
Washing the thing up a bit before sanding.
All painted and ready to go back in
The finished product
I put a new radiator in when she went back together, was still the original. 22 years is a long time for plastic.
I also did my front grill, I like the look of the flat black over the stock gloss.
I didn't get any pictures but the next day my son in law says "My charge light is on and all the electric stuff in my car is acting funny" So new alternator in his Highlander.
Wonder how many knees have been wrecked by those pegs.
Finished up replacing the u joint and carrier bearing on the EV 1100 and adjust the valves on the XT350
Started going over the 'new' ride. 33000 miles, I'm pretty sure it never saw rain. Ever.
Added heated vest harnesses, and adjusted the clutch to my liking.
Working on suspension settings as well.
Ahhh.... Why I have electric everything...
Unboxed, and added sound:
Ford wanted $350 for a rear pads & rotors job on a Ford Escape. LOL. I spent $98 in parts and did it myself. Took me 2 hours because I was using hand tools and rust was pretty bad.
I came this close to doing that to a Kawasaki F11 many years ago. Good on him.
I've done it to a couple printers...
Man, I miss my TJ... :-( 2000 with 70k on it, original driveline.
I got bored and tried my hand at making a light for my bench. I'm not liking it at all. Back to the drawing board.
^A good try, but it looks too "spot lighty".
You can't go wrong with the new LED "shop lights".
It looks like you need to attach the light to a movable bench?
If the bench doesn't move, use some light chains to hang it from the ceiling (I did that in my sloped ceiling garage).
If the bench does move, then you might use some "goal posts" on either end to hang if from, or better yet, build a shelf over the work surface and attach the light to the underside.
Good luck with the project & keep at it! Good lighting helps progress on the bench for sure.
I got tired of having burning eyes and a scratchy throat every time I turned the heat on in my Jeep, so....
Not too bad compared to other heater cores I’ve done.
Having traced an intermittent electrical issue on the Suzuki back to a faulty volt meter (and not the pricey MOSFET R/R), I celebrated by putting together a Low Country Boil in Mrs. TM's new Instant Pot.
Let the Yum commence.
Swept the leaves around in front of the house. Whoopie!
Everything is fixed and working. Now what??
Go for a ride before you can't?
Finally got the bodywork back from paint and finished up my 76 KZ900. It's taken me about a year but finally turned this
Well done! That bobber was hideous!
