  1. One thing I did was bolt a computer fan directly to the regulator, on whenever the ignition is on.

  2. This bike is near perfect. 2012 SWMotech bags, givi topcase, rox risers, barkbusters, sw motech engine guards, triumph radiator guard, kaoko throttle lock and madstad screen, Sargent seat, triumph gel seat and stock seat. Probably something I forgot. It has 8k miles. $5500.

  3. Completed and now it operates as new, Gen 2 Prius. Problem with the battery was caused by a clogged cooling fan. Electron Hybrid Solutions, good company. I sent them a message slate Friday night and didn't expect anything till Monday. Sat morning I get a message that they are closed but e-mail me, I'll try to help you, send me photos and I'll figure it out. How many businesses do that? Got it solved and all is good.

  5. Never for me. You look and look where you 'know' you put it but no. So you give up and buy new. Not much time passes and there it sits, the tool you were looking for from the start. Now the question is, do you put the new tool with the old tool or somewhere different so it will up the chances of finding it in five years when you are looking for it again?

  6. Random. I got 3 different camo decals. Just cut them in random shapes, random order. Whatever felt "right". When I put all pieces on the bike I laughed hysterically for couple minutes. Looks that good in person. Lol. Let's be real. Going to the track is retarded in first place, no trophy, costs arm and leg, and you could get injured. Seriously. Speeds are stupid. The only positive is I don't have the need to ride that aggressively on the street. And, above certain level race track speed does not really do any good for your streets riding. Kinda like mastering F16 won't do shit to your Cessna flying skills. So, anyone who does that is fucked in the head to begin with, why to pretend you are serious, adult person. 🤔 Now, I don't see fish.

  9. Sounds like it's time for a carb cleaning. The low speed jets have a very small hole and is easy to get plugged up.

  10. in the haynes manual it shows the ignition is held in with 2 shear head bolts.easiest would probably be to have a lock smith cut a new key. probably be a good idea to have a couple of spares cut at the same time

  11. Clearly not real men. Even if they weren't worth storing for re-use, a real man has a fire pit. But construction sites do throw away a lot of wood. A buddy of mine is a framer and gives me a fair amount of firewood, some pieces have been turned into useful items.

  12. That is an excellent question. Let me just whip out my fish scales. IXIL's are 7.5 lbs each. OEM for comparision are just under 15 lbs each.

  13. Excuse me, while I have a stroke it was not red. My wife found it in the garage.

  14. My Lipo battery was used this past weekend - it ran a huge refrigerated and freezer cooler for 12 hours and only used 20% of its capacity. I was amazed. Having a fridge and freezer on a boat is a game changer. No ice rules.

  15. After walking away for a bit I went back at it...found a bad connection between the stator plug in and the rectifier...I was able to resolve that and its sitting at 13.0 at idle and slowly rises with the throttle even at operating temp...the true test will be on a road test tomorrow!! Thanks everyone! These readings were while riding as well as on the stand Oh no! well I bought it over a year ago as a spare so maybe its not one of those?!

  16. Well, my issue is about 900 millions of flat crank inline 4 have been made. They are everywhere. At this point there is nothing exotic or unique about them. Same with traditional, cross plane, V8s. Except production numbers are close to 2 billion. 🤐 Now, cross plane inline 4 or flat crank V8 will get my attention, and even possibly erection.

  17. I used an old Craftsman....been doing this for years....was easier when I could take the cracked ones in for their lifetime replacement.

  18. I should buy a new plug. The threads appeared unhappy. I agree, having the vehicle lift is a total game changer. Super grateful for the lift just wish I had one starting about 30 years ago.. The lift is certainly a “friend magnet”. 🤣

  19. Interesting, and not urban legend. Straight from NGK page. In DI engine, you index it toward injector?

  20. Price for fx36, special effects, is ouch. I got it cheap of eBay, but normally is around 150 bucks for half of pint. BTW, it is just the beginning. I think it needs some areas of black pearl. I'm gonna contact my ex, she is still batshit crazy but always had excellent ideas about graphic designs. What colors go well together, etc. I started this project some years ago, painted entire helmet in orange pearl, and then life happened. No time to finish it. Can't even remember what was the original idea, something about Alex Rins helmet. So, areas under the tape are orange pearl. I have all kinds of House of Kolor base coats left from different projects. We'll see what happens next. BTW, ordered high temperature reducer, one I used this morning was for 65-75 F degrees, but the summer is here. 95-100 next week. At least I'm not in Phoenix.

  23. https://www.racdyn-usa.com/CTGY/EXHAUSTACCESSORIES.html This was a lot cheaper than the next alternative, the ECU flash/tune. But the flash would supposedly do wonders for performance, which I am not particularly interested in improving. I can clear the sensor light but it only lasts about a day.
