    Swapped fairings couple weeks ago. Initially I was not convinced that platinum pearl was the right way to go but now I love it. Color combination has 50's American Iron vibe. It was lottsa work but I love it. It is beautiful blue in direct bright sun, goes into blue-teal in the shade.

    Top of Old Spiral Hwy Lewiston ID. It is much faster then expected, I could easily dip into lower triple digits on my race prepped R1. Cruising milage improved by honest 10%, I get 40 mpg at true 85 mph in configuration as in the pic.

    I read the title of this thread and thought Tim was pimping himself out. LOL

    1873/5000 Hello friends, because as I already mentioned I have carried out the experiment and I tell you how it has been ... I have connected the bulb to 12V with a transformer and indeed when I touched it it was quite hot, so for the avoidance of doubt I have done a home test trying to recreate the conditions of the bulb inside the odometer, a small place without breathing and with plastics that can be melt from the heat, so I tell you the experiment ... To make the comparison of light I have connected a 1.7 W bulb (the original) and the one I currently have on the bike (5W), and clearly the 5 W bulb looks brighter and it also heats up a lot more and that was my fear. To recreate an odometer inside I have put the bulb in a glass without breathing and I have also put the bulb in a plastic glove which is the thinnest plastic I have been able to find to see how the heat of the bulb affected it, the bulb at all times it has been in contact with the plastic glove, I have left the light bulb inside the plastic for 20 minutes (enough to see the reaction) and after 20 minutes if the plastic has been slightly deformed but very little, in addition Keep in mind that it was in direct contact with the bulb, when removing the bulb from the plastic it came out without problems and had not stuck with the plastic although it has been deformed a little, but eye is a very very thin plastic and was wrapping all the light bulb, With which the conclusion that I draw is that you can rest easy and these bulbs will not deform our internal plastics, in a trip of 5 or 6 hours I have not tested it, but I have been with the bike for more than two hours in a row and no problem, And now after doing the experiment that I have carried out I am already calm and with the certainty that even if it generates heat nothing will happen. That's it, now I am calm with the 5w lights. I have to test the same light bulb but in blue, to see if the numbers make them more blue and it looks more beautiful, as soon as I try it I upload it and see how it would look ...

    I just completed a 4000 mile trip that I have taken many times before but always without one of these things. The biggest difference is the chain just stays quiet and in adjustment all the time. I used to have all kinds of issues and now it' doesn't seem all that different from a shaft drive sometimes. I'd post pictures but this guy has all the info you need anyway. If you tour, these are great. I mounted mine a little differently, and the XX does make it a little harder than it was on my ZX14. but it more than worth your time to make it work. If you don't do big miles they aren't necessary but if you do... http://www.thisstupidurl.com/ScottOiler/index.html
