I want to pull the Audiovox cruise control off of the '02 and put it onto the '04.  I never knew I needed that thing until I was suddenly without it!

Possibly a trunk for my 98.  Sonic 1.2 springs for the forks.  Definitely a fork brace.   I would like to do some wireing upgrades so i can step up the headlights, and add driving lights

1.) Repair front fairing stay...and while I'm in there replace dash lights with LEDs, install 12v acc. outlets, LED side markers, and a headlight wiring upgrade.
2.)  Rehab front suspension...trying to do it on the cheap and going to mod the stock springs, 15w oil, & a fork brace
3.)  Rehab rear shock...maybe find a new shock, otherwise 15w oil.
4.)  Whole lot of general maintenance while I have the bike torn down...valve check, fluids, bleed/clean brakes, block-off plates

Clean the fuel system (again) so it can be ridden.  Probably past time to change coolant, too.  It hasn't been outside since Fall '09.  Hope the front tire isn't flat-spotted.

Hmm, where do I start...
1. Send carbs to SISF (plus get his exhaust sprocket)
2. Cee Bailey's Windscreen
3. JM CB radio/audio, possibly with Bluetooth (though it's freaking expensive  :( )
4. Add fuel filter
5. Heated grips
6. Cut the rear fender
May be some other minor stuff. Oh, and maintenance - valve adjust, carb sync, spark plugs, oil change, tires.... I need a salary raise!!!  >:(

Hope you don't mind - I'm going to be quoting your post a lot.  That's hysterical!  :rotflmao:

Now be careful with that, sometimes the dirt is the only thing that keeps all the parts together  ;D

Crossed one off the list today:

Got the E128 GIVI mounting kit on the bike last week.  Used the nice weather(40 F) today to see how well the 46L trunk fits on it.  Might put some invisible reflective tape on the bottom of the trunk.  You can see the tape shining off the sidebags when the flash hits it.

   

(A GIVI E65 backrest pad is now on the trunk too.)
