Lightbulb Results of the recent list of things done

Got a video of everything that I've recently alluded to over the last month or two.

Starter- fixed hot start issue. Armature was worn. When warm brushes would ground out.

Stator- Ricks OEM direct replacement. Extremely impressive low rpm voltage.

Leds- headlight, running lights, brake light. No more brown outs when the fan kicks on, using brakes and turn signals. Always above 13.5

This weeks project - fork oil. What weight do YOU like?

Since I don't list my mods I'll take a second to name a few. "all of them". (lol) as we know who have been here for years and owned these bikes there are tons of things to make it better. Blue wire, two wire, shaved pickups, ignition coil relays, etc. Mine has been fully kitted with everything we have all came up with for years now. No stone left unturned. De-goated as well. I run my carbs differently from everyone else because i like a particular sound from my bike so it's a little richer, idles low, cams a bit with a hit and miss. Just like I like it.

I've been pleased with my cosmetic additions as well. Highway bar adds noticeable stiffness to the cornering of the bike. Extended backrest is not only good for the old lady, but I've become so used to seeing it there the back end looks stubby when i see one without it. The saddle bags I chose have an angled front which the old lady says helps her with the rear pegs foot and leg placement. I've had a third bag for the phone, glasses, etc since the week i bought the bike and not having your breakables in the bottom of the bags is nice. Two cupholders...... So she can bring her own drink and leave mine alone .

Like several of us who have been here for so long in the VN family and helped build the site with knowledge and experience with our bikes, i feel we who have owned them a while and done all these particular mods enjoy our bikes to the fullest. They are at their best.

Got busy for a bit welding a project. Now to finish the post....

There's some subtle changes i made that you'd have to be an owner to notice. My favorite was removing all the amber reflectors and using red. Such as on the radiator covers. They don't stand out and match my bike since it's red.

The indicators are all clear smoked, not painted over amber. Had to order them.

Blacked out the air filters. Felt like they stood out too much.

The bags i chose have a slant because they keep the relocated RR cool. Also, the old lady says they give her a lot of foot room on the pegs.

I've lost so many $20 swing arm covers i gave up and painted them black. Worked out.
