Swapped my final drive oil.


Also cleaned the final drive with some foaming Simple Green.

This is my vain attempt to make a picture thread for anything 750 related.

Today I swapped the final drive oil, almost finished the MOSFET r/r wiring, put the drive unit back in.
Other pictures are of work from the last few days on front brakes, light bar, etc.
Sorry for the awful garage, it'll be cleaned again once the bike is out.

I'd posted up some pic's of what happened on my VN750 yesterday, but.....

1, I think the wife would divorce me for posting such pic's on line.

2, such pic's, I'm sure are not legal here and would most likely get me banned!

3, ok, busted. there are no pic's, because it didn't happen!

The lights will be wired so I can turn them Off, On, or automatically On when the high beams are engaged. Should make it easy to run around town without blinding everyone but have all the lighting I could want for back roads at night.

The master cylinder is available on eBay for $50:

Remade my stator gasket today as I had a small leak that was driving me nuts.
