OMC,

What are your Jackpot plans? Do you have a room reserved somewhere? Need to figure out where I am staying in Jackpot.  :beerchug:

ok after the seat gets here I will lookninto the knee savers then move on to some highway peg options. I want to add some driving lights so maybe tip over bars with lights and highway peags are in my future.

Anybody run the progressive rear shock or front springs?

+1 on Murph's Kneesavers.  And some sort of highway pegs.

Here's one other thought that I have heard on other bike forums:  It might in some cases be better to have the Fenda Extenda NOT be some absolutely welded to the fender.  Granted we don't usually take Connie on dirt/rough roads, but in the off chance that the Extenda hits something real solid like a big rock, giant pot-hole or the like, it MIGHT be better to just have it tear off rather than pull the whole bottom of the fender with it, possibly scimitaring the oil cooler as it goes.

Just a thought.
If you manage to hit a rock or pothole big enough to even touch the extender, it has likely crushed your lower fairing, overflow tank, headers, and radiator already.  I don't think you have to worry about the extender doing any more damage.

Try doing it yourself. You'll like your bike more.

And you just have to play the right music while working on your baby.

This is one of the under-appreciated classics I have in my work garage loop. Try it while working on your C10. You might just fall in love with her.

Accessories C10 / Re: HeliBars From Other Models Fit?
« Last post by Rick on Today at 02:44:03 am »
 I bought a set of 1987 BMW K 100 LT bars off ebay for $25.00 + shipping. I purchased Storz bar adapters and rox risers from someone on the COG and added 6" over brake and clutch lines. I love the difference the bars made. The only thing with BMW bars is you will need to drill a small hole for the tab on your controls so they will not move around when you hit your turn signals or kill switch. Also the bar ends holes are not large enough for your stock connie bar end weights. Other that that they are great.

Might need to look up and invest in SiSF's flash which remedies all of that!  ;)

Accessories C14 / Headlight protectors
« Last post by gsun on Today at 02:27:00 am »
I have had these headlight protectors for years and couldn't figure out how to mount them without having some ugly velcro stickers showing. Most of the time I prefer function over looks but this one bugged me. Someone here painted a black strip to hide the velcro but when I looked at that it seemed too much of the light would be blocked. Probably not, but that was the thought. I bought some clear velcro and was all excited. When I opened the package, the hook part was fairly clear and the loop part was white! Lots of good that does.
Then I saw a package with 2" wide strips in black. I got that and cut strips about 3/8" wide and stuck it around the edges of the protector. Then cut the loop part and stuck that to the hook strips. I covered the joins in the opposite direction in case the light shows them.
I'm not impressed with my job. There are some air bubbles on one side and will have to work them out. And it's not the neatest job I've ever done! Also I don't know if I want them on all the time and the way I did it they have to be.
Just thought I would pass this on and see who can improve on the idea. I did not go all the way around as I didn't want to block any light from the city light bulbs.
