    No, just the shaft of the pin. That's what causes pressure on the latch to keep it locked. I cut a piece of cloth friction tape about 1/8 inch wide and wrapped two layers around the pin. I haven't...

    Me too

    I noticed mine did that too. After looking at the latch I noticed the notch was no longer round but was now elongated. I think the vibration against the pin wore it out. I wrapped the pin in a...

    Low revs in town

    I don't have a clue about your stalling problem. It may or may not be a battery problem. I could be a fuel injection problem if you have to keep your revs up to keep it running. In reference to...

    Getting an edge

    Hi Mark II,
    I have the Wunderlich Tall Windshield on my '05 and the wind hit me right in the center of my visor. I found this edging called Micro-swirl made by SAENG and it threw the wind just...

    Darker than my bike

    I would have to say its probably Mandarin. I have a yellow 05 650 GS and its definitely lighter than that.

    Still Available

    I've had a Brake! LED taillight on my bike for years. I've had several comments that it lights up as bright as a flare and definitely gets your attention. There seems to be some confusion as to the...

    On the other hand

    C'mon Richard,

    Tell them the flip side of that story. At the beginning of the month, the ambient temps were at -45 to -55 for two weeks straight. That's chilly even for us!

    I heard a rumor that they'll be reworking major sections of the Dalton Highway (the Haul Road from Fairbanks to Deadhorse) this summer so be prepared for some slow, if not impassable, traffic. I...

    Corbin Seat?

    rmarkr,

    The panel exposed

    This last picture shows the panel without the cover to show the connections. As I mentioned earlier, the second (white) wire on the "+" terminal is the "switched" wire for my PIAA 510 lights. I put...

    Panel installed

    This is the panel installed. As I mentioned earlier, I decided just to pad the compartment since it made it easier to get the panel back out.

    A little can be a lot

    Hi Sapphire,

    Nice looking bike. I had to look around for it but I eventually found it in the "Post a Picture of Your 800" thread. My bike is pretty much yellow and black which is what I wanted...
