Fuse makes sense.
The RID has 2 power pins on its connector, one of them powers the clock only, when the bike is shut off.
I guess you're lucky you joined the MoA, eh? :D
Yes, that's different for sure.
I would've got him to flop on the first bead, torque the wheelbolts etc.
Friends working together is fun but liability has to clearly stay with the bike owner.
Oops, I missed that.
I'd buy it for sure, even if it had ABS which it may not.
It will need some work right away, just fuel and safety issues like brakes and tires.
IMO the HES is probably OK until you ride it long...
Thanks for the pics, they make everything more interesting.
Start with a motorcycle wheel/tire assembly that has been balanced traditionally with weights using either a static or dynamic balance machine.
Verify it feels balanced(no shaking) up to say 70MPH....
And so it seemed to MCN.
Easy mistake to make.
The answer is in post #91
I hear you happy.
Here are 2 compelling videos that perhaps don't provide exactly what you're looking for but these are the videos that encouraged me to understand the physics.
The water bottle...
Snake oil is a fairly good lubricant, not great at high temperature but an ounce or two in your crankcase would result in no ill effect.
Dynabeads are made of a very hard ceramic material...
MCN made a mistake (7-1/2 years ago).
The beads distribute around the inside of the tire to null out eccentric motion at the axle.
If the axle is fixed by the dynamic balancer, the beads...
I'm thinking a guy like you might be interested in salvaging the PC-680.
Have a look at this thread and read what GSAddict has to say about recovery and proper charging of AGM type batteries.
After all this you want to screw up the sidestand interlock switch? :D
Well done lads!
Cele, you were a great guide.
Jeff, glad you hung in there. Buy your wife something nice with the money you saved. :D
While cele and Jeff are closing in on the problem, here is how a regular diode clamps reverse voltage on a relay coil.
It prevents spikes from damaging relay drive components.
We all like to help.
Here's a couple reasons you should chill with a beer and rethink your position:
1/ Your last sentence.
2/ Some(I would say most) very good mechanics don't have a good...
I'm with these guys.
Here's a simple test:
Put your finger on the yellow start relay(#1) while you press the starter button.
You will feel/hear it CLICK with each press of the starter.
Pretty sure you need a new switch.
Look around here.

Well written and on point. Doesn't belong in this thread. :D
I think he meant that his balancer is capable of finer balance than would be noticeable.
Don't you guys have honey-do lists, or need to work on your bikes, or maybe even watch Oprah?
I have a home compressor I use to mount tires as well as adjust pressure. I've never had them clump, I think mounting lube would cause more trouble than moisture. They do get difficult to install...
I think the problem is that it's really difficult to describe how they work and setting up a demonstration is too much of a PITA.
The beads in a bottle with a drill is a good demo but it's a bottle,...
If you don't disable the alternator, you will be measuring current from only one of two sources. I suppose you could use 2 ammeters and measure current from both.
Perhaps I shouldn't have said...
Stand by for some Bewbies from vegasgsa1 guys! :D
