    Auxiliary fuel tank fitted - JAZ cell

    Thanks for those replies Eric, I've been absent for a while. Craig if you follow Eric's links and where to buy bits you will be fine. As for the aux tank sump, if you look at my JAZ install, the tank is sitting on two sections of 50mm/2 inch alloy square tube. I have used the steel...

    Use the whole gallon at oil change time?

    4 quarts? Quarts? Its a Japanese bike. They use the metric system and all that jazz. Then there's that pesky 17mm sump plug...... too big for a 5/8th inch spanner, too small for 3/4 inch spanner, but just a little bit small for an 11/16th inch spanner, so that should work just fine. There's...

    Back pain, NOT lower back, kind of on my back lats, a few inches out from the spine on each side HELP!

    I regularly ride long distances of over 1000 miles per day and often day after day. I've never considered it a chore to look in my mirrors every few seconds or so. I even check the speedo every now and then, plus the fuel gauge and have a sip from a camelbak when I feel like it or think I...

    Just when you think a custom bike couldn't get any dumber

    I wish he'd taken the time and effort to take better photos with a better background. All that junk destroys the (crazy) lines of the bike. I have a Valkyrie in my shed................;)

    What first and what kind?

    I'd think that for a commuter planning to lane-split that a lockable, waterproof top box would be higher up the priority list than either panniers or a skid plate.

    Locating PC8 Fuse Box in the Tool Kit Area?

    I've had my PC-8 down there for years. Lots of space. I have a Starcomm communications box under the seat. I've replaced my tool kit with more bits and that usually ride along in my pannier.

    Fuel tank damage —-> repair?

    Is TABASCO still making his 'Frankentanks'? ie cutting the tank horizontally and welding in a strip of metal to create a tank 8 litres larger than stock? He may be able to make use of your tank as a donor.

    darkside / car tire ????

    There are lots of forum threads in here and on other sites about the whys (and why nots) that may provide the information you seek. They often start with someone thinking they are the first to question the darkside/car tyre practice. I'd suggest you try there. Or even try here...

    Difficult to Read

    I ditched that black background years ago for a light grey one. The 'theme' is called "Curve": To change the whole forum look to light grey with black text go to [Profile] [Modify Profile] [Look and Layout] Then at 'Current Theme' click (change). There are 4 choices.

    max watts available for lights, etc ?

    As Nikolajsen said, the 650 is the total for the whole bike. Taking into consideration all of the watts required for the bike itself, there is still ample spark left over for extra lights.

    Car Tires - Debate

    Re: Car Tires - What people think are the negatives or want to debate This pic is of my Valkyrie rear tyre. It is one of those stupid Metzelers with no sipes crossing the midline so consequently zero warning before the metal peeks out though the rubber. There is a wear bar visible in the...

    Russell Day Long Saddle (((SOLD)))

    Re: Russell Day Long Saddle No political BS that I could see. I can't see how you can misconstrue not wanting to mail stuff to a rider in Hawaii as political. In my post I said the buyer is paying, so I'll ignore your "that's too much!" comment. I do take on board that you don't want to...
