  1. The Clear Alternatives Integrated taillight was the factory Shape but with a large LED printed circuit board inside that replaced the bulbs. jaws-motorcycles.co.uk also made an LED taillight that had the XX pattern in LEDs bright.
  2. I will consciously do that the next ride to see if it still clunks as bad. Good tip to try.
  3. I am aware that the 01 is suppose to be improved to reduce the clunk, I was just throwing my opinion out there as it still has a much more noticable clunk into gear than does my FJR or my GSXR or my SV650 or or or..... I personally just settled with the fact that the Bird has a very clunky shifter. I have not been easy on the clutch with multiple trips to Pennsylvania and doing over 30 passes on the drag strip there and then returning home to Florida. I assume yours is eceptionally loud and clunky since it is not a factory set up to begin with. Over the years I have tried many different oils with the same results. I even spent he money on fancy Repsol MotoGP oil one time! I think I paid about $16 a quart just to see if it made a difference? It did not. tried Amsoil, Honda OEM, Yamalube, Mobile 1, Castrol, etc and always seem to return to whatever is on sale in the correct viscosity range and full synthetic and change it out at approx 4000 mile intervals. I could go a lot longer interval but my piece of mind says 4000 works for me. Being in South Florida heat I like to run a viscosity of either 10/15/20 - 50.
  4. I have been running Mobile 1 15-50 for a few years in my 01 with no issues and a few drag strip passed under her belt and 65,000 miles strong. It is a little clunkier as compared to my newer 16 FJR1300 but I thought most all of the Birds clunked into gear fairly hard? ]
  5. Mine did the same thing last year and Joe was able to fix me up with a used replacement. Not sure if they are even available anymore from Honda but if so they are stupid expensive like $8-900.00! I did a bunch of research and found a company in Michigan, I think it was, that rebuilds the LCD screens on Corvette's. It can be rebuilt but if my memory serves me it was gonna run about $250.00 plus shipping and a 6+ week lead time. You should just buy the 2001 that is for sale cheap in North Carolina!
  6. I sold hundreds of them back in the day. I forget the size now but I ordered them in through Fastenal as a Buna O-Ring. They held up better than the OEM O-ring!
  7. I have in stock the OEM Push-pins and the Fairing Bolts. https://bikebits.us/store?olsPage=t%2Fblackbird-specialty-items
  8. I have seen this done as well, instead of using a screwdriver what about the broken off key base as the screwdriver? If all else fails just take the whole bike to the locksmith or have a mobile locksmith stop by and extract the key remains. Don't waste time with the tank removal.
  9. Doesn’t your dealership require a PDI before delivery of any motorcycle? As part of the PDI, a test ride to make sure all systems function as expected is required, for insurance/liability reasons.
  10. The Q3 is no more, very old and outdated now. The Q3 Plus and the Q4 have replaced it.
  11. I upgraded my iPhone to the XS and ordered in a new SlipGrip holder for it. My old iPhone 6S had a clear minimal Apply case on it that fit this holder. If anyone has use for it, I can mail it to you for $4.00. Otherwise I toss it in the recycle bin. I also have a 6S extended battery case for the mailing cost as well.
  12. I may have found the answer. i went into my passwords on my iCloud account and saw the .org listed twice with the same password. I deleted one and refreshed the other and when I went to go back in it asked me to log in again but showed a little pop up with a key pictured. tapped the key and it auto filled and let me in. seems now it is working as it should again. hopefully all straightened out. I am sure it is operator error! this new XS is amazing and looking forward to playing with the camera.
  13. I am aware of the check box and have checked it off each time so I am assuming that I am not saving the login to my keychain and/or iCloud account. That is what I am trying to figure out how to use.
  14. I got my new XS yesterday and it is doing the same thing as my 6S did. Everytime I go to the .org in Safari it says "You do not have permission to view this content" (Existing user? Sign in) I think it is a setting that needs to be changed but haven't found where or how to save log-in info?
  15. Edited since it is not Johns bike! Looks like a pretty good deal for someone that wants an enclosed trailer.
  16. Just started to happen the last couple days with my iPhone 6S. Everytime I open the .org app on my iPhone it requires me to log in even though i have checked to box "remember my log-in" I am getting a new iPhone XS delivered today so it may not matter but was just wondering if this is happening to anyone else lately. Seems fine on my PC running Windows 10 Pro with Chrome.
  17. Good Prices. That is better than 50% off current prices.

    I need a switch

    Looking at reviews has convinced me to skip any of the above listed horns on Amazon! I bought one of these and mounted it on the Yamaha FJR1300 using the stock hardware. easy unplug and unbolt, swap horns and rebolt and plug in, done Not super load but a big improvement on the stock meep-meep sound. A plus that the name is ZKXX ! https://www.aliexpress.com/item/12V-30W-Single-Sound-Auto-Car-Snail-Horn-Waterproof-Electric-Loud-Air-Siren-for-Vehicle-Motorcycle/32832228704.html?spm=2114.search0302.3.90.74981c3drKtWlX&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_0_10130_453_454_10618_536_10890_317_537_319_10059_10696_10084_10083_10547_10546_10887_10307_321_10548_322_10065_10068_10103_10884_10545,searchweb201603_0,ppcSwitch_0&algo_pvid=9daa9489-5195-4a67-8b22-e220f5fdaa17&algo_expid=9daa9489-5195-4a67-8b22-e220f5fdaa17-11 Think I will do the same on the Civic. Was looking for something louder but everything I see is cheap made junk with bad reviews. I miss my Nathan real train horn that I had installed on my Rideline with separate compressor and 3 gallon tank. But that was $1,500.00 in cost. I still have the compressor and tank for some future install.

    I need a switch

    Now that I am looking again, I like this one: Chrome plated zinc trumpets, I question what the trunpets are made of in the cheaper one? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JA19ZNC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01JA19ZNC&pd_rd_w=eZEgo&pf_rd_p=733540df-430d-45cd-9525-21bc15b0e6cc&pd_rd_wg=ujxjq&pf_rd_r=5KW1VEKTMM2425KJEDEF&pd_rd_r=eff914e5-5a07-11e9-80e7-29197d10ef60
