  1. Suggest you look into a LED direct replacement. I did mine a couple of years ago and it is awesome. Sorry I don't have any other info for you.
  2. Make sure that all of the shut off switches are not sticking. Clutch, front/rear brake and cancel switch on the right handle bar. Make sure clutch and front brake levers are returning completely when released.
  3. We have to watch out for Donkey's in Texas
  4. I like to keep a set of new brake pads on hand and I've been shopping on Ebay. Wondering if anyone has experience with the cheaper brands they offer on there? I usually buy EBC pads and generally have had good service from them. I see a pair of NO Name rear sintered HH pads for $13.99 There's a complete set, No name, front and back, of semi metallic for $14.60 and a rear set of EBC for $31.02. Any words of wisdom? Anyone used the cheap ones? Buy cheap, get cheap?
  5. 65 years old, smoker,........ever heard of heart attack or stroke? Get your butt to a doctor man. Should have done it instead of going home to lay down. That's all I got.
  6. Very sorry for your loss. My condolences to Eileen and Don and family. May your grief be short and the good memories bring a smile.
  7. I hear they're always looking for new crash test dummies!

    Bummer

    Sorry to hear about your accident Ben. I can say, I do feel your pain. Hope you can avoid the ultimate fix.....Titanium. It will set off the metal detectors. I'm 10 weeks into my second knee replacement and I have been back on the bike but only for a short ride so far. I can walk about one mile before I'm worn out and have to sit. Dancing???? we'll see about that when we get to Texas in a couple of weeks.
  9. HI Don, Just wondering, of those 22,310, how many are current paid up members?
  10. 195 for me. Before the crash I think it was 60 something. First joined in Sept. '04
  11. Well, I found the box but it's not much help. All it says on it is "V6 LED Headlight" Google was no help. Then checked off on the side "H4/9003/HB2, 6000K Overall length 77.5 mm, top of flange to top of bulb 44.8 mm, width at the base 31.5 mm Some other writing on the box but I don't know what it means: TUV NORD TS16949 CE RoHS Googling that seem to be some kind of electrical systems product standard. Sorry but that's the best I can do. It was picked up from a vendor at a bike show by a friend. On the bright side, I was able to make it out to the shop and back on my two feet with
  12. I think I through the box away but I'll check next time I'm out in the shop. Laid up right now due to full knee replacement three weeks ago. I'll try and hobble out there tomorrow.
  13. Just the bulb. @Evan picked it up for me last winter at the Toronto motorcycle show. Easy plug and play. Very bright.
  14. I agree with @cowpuc on the root cause of your engine failure. I've had that happen twice on my '06 and both times got lucky by pulling the plugs and clearing the cylinders. Then a can of seafoam seems to take care of the sticky float problem. I run a can of seafoam through it about twice a year and turn the petcock off after every ride. Knock on wood, that seems to have solved the problem. As far as the whine goes, my '03 had it bad and changing clutch baskets really didn't help much. Seemed to just change the rpm level of the whine. My '06 doesn't have the whine at all. I've tried a vari
