  1. I have two left. send me a PM or email at John@bikebits.us
  2. Not available in the USA. The XX itself was not available in the USA in 2005.
  3. Those used to be sold as 1157A Chrome bulbs by Clear Alternatives Some manufactures called them titanium bulbs
  4. I bought a 2016 FJR1300ES from Scott in Colorado in 2017. Eats up miles in far more comfort than my 2001 Bird. They complement each other nicely in the garage. Ride the Bird for local runs up to an hour away but take the FJR when covering any mileage.
  5. Speak for yourself! I am completely secure in my insanity! 🤓
  6. Let it set overnight on the tender before installing it in the bike. Many leave their batteries on a tender indefinitely for months at a time over the winter, without harm.
  7. Dri-Eaz and Phoenix are the biggest name in the Water Damage Industry for dehumidifiers and air movers.
  8. In order to own a repairable unit that will give you 1000's of hours of use trouble free you are going to have to spend $1500.00+ My brothers company owned over 75 Dri-Eaz model 1200's for over 20 years with only a hand full of repairs needed over the years. Said repairs were quick, easy and low cost performed my me in the shop. The cheap china made units at Lowes of the Depot are disposable only with a short life span.
  9. Yea, I saw that outdoor option. Also their site says they are currently working on a dedicated outdoor model. I am still researching, not liking the 12 second recording time after motion is detected followed by a 5 minute cool down. Still looking and learning trying to avoid a $250 model that I like but can not justify the cost for right now.
  10. Is the Wyze camera available for outdoor use mounted under an eve? Not finding anything about outdoor use. Also need direct wired, not interested in replacing or recharging batteries.
  11. My neighbor has 2 of the ring brand camera's that work amazingly well and have proved out to be worthwhile. Twice the local police have utilized video from his camera's to help solve a crime. They are fully customizable as far as alarms, voice over, night vision, and notifications but do utilize the cloud for most storage. Cheap annual cost. I am looking to add a pair on my house as soon as the $500 budget allows. I have no prior experience with security cameras so take my opinion with a grain of salt. They are rated well. Here is the one that I am looking at https://shop.ring.com/products/floodlight-cam?variant=56549562891
  12. Perhaps you could plan to attend NeXXT in early September and meet Joe in person as well as a bunch of other great people.

    With you being in PA you are very close to a number of well educated blackbird owners and one person in particular that has just about most any stock part needed for any year Blackbird and is an honest straight shooter as a bonus!!
  15. Do you spray with the pieces on a flat surface as pictured or do you hang them? Nice that you have access to a decent paint booth.

  17. Maybe the Seafoam stabilized the Sta-Bil !!
  18. Past research and talking with "sales" reps all seem to agree with internet reviews that Star Brite brand is the best performing and lowest cost per oz on the market. But yes they all only claim to be effective on ethanol based fuels and make no claims for pure gas other than possibly a bit of cleaning action for carbs or injectors.
  19. Send him a Private Message and it should pop up on his personal email.
  20. Agree with John Hydraulic Supply or similar hyd shop should be able to get you the correct size O-ring
  21. Stu, I am good friends and business associate with John (Jaws) myself. I also know a bunch of the BlackBird riders/owners in England very well. John actually sold his business (Jaws Motorcycles) and retired but is still active on the forum and organizes annual Blackbird Bash get togethers the last week of May, (Bank Holiday) in Thetford. I attended 6 times myself back in the early 2000's. He is a wealth of knowledge on the BlackBird and has helped out many blokes over there.
  22. stupid money but this is one from ebay" https://www.ebay.com/i/372683316969?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=372683316969&targetid=882497019982&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9011841&poi=&campaignid=9248481111&mkgroupid=93538209803&rlsatarget=pla-882497019982&abcId=1141156&merchantid=137699108&gclid=Cj0KCQjwyPbzBRDsARIsAFh15JbKxsxBezjBsVePuPCe3zW9UkK49UqXbJnDjG8uhrXzFzVthERZx3saAub2EALw_wcB
  23. Pyramid Plastics used to make a rear seat cowl for the Bird. Not sure if it is still available but was pretty nice and had a small pad on the front side of it to cushion your tailbone if you slide back on the seat.
