    Took off the rear pannier frame, side panels, rear exhausts, the y pipe then ran out of tools. Ready to go again tomorrow to get the header pipes off for the 2-1 gpr conversion

    I just ordered new chain and sprockets. Chain was on sale so saved a tiny bit. Still $419 or so. :doh

    I went down about that hard. Twice on the 20th right side and one time the 26th left side. Soft bags and HDB handguards and mirrors. Only damage was to me and my ego. Been wanting highway pegs but scared of punching a hole in the tanks if they hit hard enough. Everybody was right these bikes crash well.

    Finally completed the LED conversion of all lights....with the exception of the dash.
    The turn signals are odd in that they are BAU15S...those took the longest as they came from, yup, China.
    *EDIT* other options are out there, shop around... www.superbrightleds.com has everything....
    I was worried about the overall length as some bulbs are pretty long, the ones I chose are 32mm which is pretty much the stock length.
    Now that they are mounted there is easily another 10mm of space....

    I was not going to fool with inline Resistors so I got an LED flasher from Amazon for $7 and it was plug & play.

    I went Cyclops for the head light but shoppers choice on the rest....

    I am very happy with the results...time will tell on longevity....the stock incandescents have lasted 11 years and 60K.....

    Sweet! I was looking to design some new blinkers use’n LED’s. I thought I could just wire em in. So, do I need a “flasher” too?

    I just recently did the same but I went with these:

    For the tail light: Woxma, with 2ea 3030 chips (RED)
    For the Brake light: Amazenar, with 39 3014 chips (RED)
    For the turn signals: iBrightstar, with 50 3014 chips & 3 3030 chips (AMBER)

    You'll notice I used red bulbs for both the tail light & the brake light: Red LEDs perform better behind the red lens than white (clear) - MUCH brighter than stock incandescents. The results are pretty spectacular. I took some pics but they don't do the brightness and clarity any justice. I'm very happy with the results.

    Hi folks,

    I'm doing my first chain/sprocket install on my 2008 990 Adv which in on its original kit from the factory.. yep 11 eleven years on the same OEM stuff..

    And this is what I've found laying under the nut... :eek7

    [​IMG]

    I've cleaned pretty good and the splines seem to be ok. But I wonder if it is ok to reinstall the new cs sprocket with a bit on Honda Moly Pasty 60 I have laying around the shop?

    Regards,
    Mane

    I began planning my assault on the freshened up motor and mid-life crisis management service for my 990R. One more tank and I'll me through the 600 miles or so.
    I figure to do all the usual 600 mile service stuff, plus new coolant hoses after I do the water pump seal and shaft since the shop didn't bother to do that while the motor was apart.
    I'll be checking the chassis bearings and cleaning it up and greasing as well as checking they got wiring back on where it won't wear through in the middle of BFE.
    I need to work this in so I get the motor stuff done, then a week or so before I leave on the next adventure swap out tires and the drivetrain.
    Should be fun. I figure I'll fiddle with the tubeless conversion when I get back so I have that for the KTM rally.

    THough, I am looking forward to playing with the Rabaconda. :clap

    It gives and additional 8 litres so about 100km range. So am now getting between 330 and 350KM with everything full. Will see on the heating....so far seems ok, it has some heat shield underneath near the pipes. Quite nicely hidden and protected where it is....will keep you posted by so far happy with it.

    To give you an idea of how bright the LEDs are, here's a full daylight shot of my running/blinker light LED conversion:
