  1. Wiring diagrams can be found here in the Tech Library:
  2. John: That is a very painful way to get out of working the rest of the day! I think if you had had a beer first and then sat down in a comfortable chair and contemplated all the work ahead of you, you would have decided to wait until the next day to start the project and then it might have turned out differently. Ah, 2020 hindsight is great!! Jim
  3. We had a rider die in a collision with a deer yesterday. https://www.whec.com/wayne-county-ny-news/newark-man-on-motorcycle-dies-after-striking-deer-/5875914/?cat=565 Jim
  4. I have one of these and it fits in the side bag of my 89 VR. Never a gas smell and it sits in the bag in the sun all day long. I only carry it on trips and do not use it for around town travel. I have never had to use it for myself, but I have used it for other riders. It's pricey, but very heavy plastic and worth the cost. Jim
  5. I'm with WIZ, I installed a Shindegen FH20AA R/R and it charges at 14.2 volts (even at idle) and never had a problem. It's a great unit. I soldered the three wires to the the harness and then wired the R/R direct to the battery and not thru the wire harness to the bike. No waste of power thru the long complicated wire harness on 30 year old wiring. Jim
  6. I had a great time and Ernie and Dave were very accommodating. And the food was AWESOME! This campground has all types of accommodations to match anyone's taste from campsites to hotel and cabins. Along with beautiful views of Lake Ontario, while watching the sun go down, and sitting around the nightly campfire, swapping lies while unwinding from the days activities. It was a great weekend and I am looking forward to going back next year. PS: I agree with Big Tom, the steak dinner was awesome and as a matter of fact all the meals were fantastic. Now, I have to exercise more to lose
  7. Ben: Sorry to hear of the passing of your family member. Will say a prayer for you and your wife. Jim
  8. Hi Dave: I am considering going to this. Is the bathrooms and showers open? And do I need to reserve a site? Jim Crane
  9. Big Skot: You don't need to spend that kind of money. Contact Dave (dfitzbiz) above. He can help you.
  10. The soft washer was corrected in the middle of the the '85 model year starting with the serial number (last four digits) of 1413.

  13. Ben: I saw a note on the local news yesterday that the US and Canada may extend the cross border block for another month. I will try to find the article and paste it here. Jim
