it blows my mind that with so much other after-market crap out there, that nobody with a half-decent machine shop has taken the opportunity to start making parts for this bike. That's not too difficult of a part to make given the tools and one to copy from.

I can make one for ya. Give me three weeks and $100 and I'll throw in the shipping for free.

3 week lead time required to fix up and sell current house

Work quote breakdown:
$20 oil change in order to get to currently installed plug
$10 steel billet
$10 for aggravation while trying to find a threading tool & boring bar
$60 time away from wife fee - goes directly toward purchase of flower bouquet

In all seriousness, though, it's a shame that guy who was pushing so hard to part out his bike sort of bailed on the forum. Hope he hasn't scrapped the bike.

Wiring Diagram + annotations * still undergoing revisions, but still more useful than the generic one. Let me know if you find mistakes or think something additional should be added

I'm more amazed that with all the part outs on ebay and everywhere else this part is the bigfoot of the Vn world.

Just curious, have others had trouble with the drain bolt head rounding? Mine isn't even close to the original size at this point. It's on my list to replace when I order parts for the overhaul next week. You're welcome to my old one, but I've had to use a pair of vice grips to hold it securely enough to get it out.

I have not had any issues with rounding, however, I think it's silly to use that drain bolt every time.

I use it every third oil change. The bottom drain bolt works just fine for the other times. I still haven't had anything notable in the screen (after fixing the balance dampers).

Interesting - so you go against the conventional wisdom and use the vertical bolt rather than the large one by the kickstand?

Except the extra oil that drains from there after the bottom drain has stopped.

It's real easy to over tighten the side plug, doesn't take much at all. Same with the fill cap.
