You say your "lights" have been pulsing and I guess that means your headlights.

Would your neutral light also be pulsing at idle?

I ask because years back there was mention of a connector under the gas tank close to the ignition coils (either it or the wire coming to it is colored brown) that needs to be disconnected/reconnected a few times and it seemed to fix that. Easy to try....

actually the one I note is the black/yel stripe one that attaches to the mounting bolt of the left coil to frame junction... remove it, scrub the ring lug, and frame with sandpaper and insure that the wire of the ring lug is not fraying or compromised and has broken strands..

I found this after major searching, when i built COGZilla, and used a set of Ninja gages, and the tach kept bouncing around in time with the ignition... when I snipped the end (it was very frayed, and had lots of broken strands) and crimped a new ring lug on, and cleaned the mating surface, all was cured...

I was at a HF last week and one of the HF Trailers was inside the front of the store.
I agree, they are no longer in the catalogue, but some remain at the stores..   Hint, hint,,, >:D

If you can't find one, the Northern Tool or Tractor Supply trailers are decent for what you want.
  PS: On both, Larger wheels can easily be installed...

I'm unable to get photo's to attach.
  Ron can tell you were to see them or send me your cell # and I'll send all you want.

I'll PM you some additional info.

Ride safe, Ted
PEOPLE - you cannot tell if a rod is bent by how the engine runs! Do the hydrolock rod test, or find out when the rod goes out the front of the engine at 9000 rpm. Your call.  :??:  Steve

I went the "frugal" route (Ted-like).   :D

Not as wide as the AST and don't have a mounting bracket, but it does add turn signals. I placed one on the back of the stock luggage rack using the tape with a small tie wrap on each end to insure it stayed there. I made a small bracket that I mounted to the bottom of the license plate for a second one. They seem to work great. I'll try get a photo or two tomorrow if you would like.

HAH!, Ted.

I used a 4x8 HF trailer with HF wheel chock to haul my Nomad a couple of times. Sold that trailer when we moved and I didn't have a place to store it. I would like it back now. Btw, HF has their trailer sales on hold, no longer listed. Apparently ran afoul of DOT with their tires not meeting standards. Supposedly they to get better tires and restart sales "sometime".

I will need to go the "frugal" route this time around, also. The T-Rex looks nice but I would like to see your turnbuckle setup. I reviewed the old thread where Ron had put up pictures but they're now in PB never-never land. Could you repost some here?

Do a search on the Forum.
Someone recently posted that they installed a set of these.

Ride safe, Ted

Lee, do you have a stock rack with a Givi Monokey adapter plate on top of it?
I think the braces are attached to the Give plate, not the original Kawasaki Rack.
I'm currently trying to find out if I can buy a set of those braces..

Ride safe, Ted
I asked Geico this a few years ago.. they basically said if the bike was 'damaged due to attempted theft" (i.e. ignition switch, ecu) and I have full covereage, the damage is covered..considering my deductable...

but lost fobs only, SOL...
so, the only answer is, if the Ign sw was destroyed, it's a MAYBEthing...

I'm not saying destroy the switch tho... :-X :great:
