Finally got my mirrors on.  Now I just have to take it for a ride to dial them in so I know where to look behind me.

Mirrors look Great, but I see something that needs to go ;)

The biggest mistake of my life was not buying a raider sooner

Thanks man.  I like them.  I'm hoping they're going I give me a good view. They were aggravating enough to install, more so than they should've been.

Mine were too.  I didnt tighten th right side up tight enough . And when i was comein home the other night in that rain storm it did like dog ears. I ordered the billet flame ones.Mine dont seem to show nothing but lines now i can actually see in them. So i am happy.

Check out my mirrors Pale Rider,

I had those installed yesterday. Today, I tried bleeding the brakes and clutch hydraulic system. Well I already finished a botle and that's fine since I wanted to get all the fluid replaced. Now I'm on my second botle of fluid and I still can't purge the air out. I tried at the master cylinder, down at the calipers end and I just can't seem to get the air out. I even went to get one of those expensive vacum pumps and nothing.

Any tips are greately appreciated. Here are some pics of almost a finished product.
Regards,
chalomalo

I hear that!!!  My weekend was slammed with Christmas preperation.

I did manage to test my Gerbing gloves and found that I do have one that is bad.  I also reattached the spout for the LA Chopper's low profile gas cap with JB Weld, so it holds better this time.  Couldn't ride at all, it rained  pretty much all weekend.  Today was clear.

It was a busy weekend, but Sunday I found time to do some bike work. A friend of ours who is deployed right now has a 2002 Dyna that he asked me to keep up with while he's gone. He is getting back state-side in about two-three weeks so I brought his Harley home, did some basic maintenance checks, fixed his tail light and brake light and cleaned it and polished it up. When I got done I figured I might as well clean up the Raider while I got everything out. Gotta say, that Harley looked good after I got it all cleaned up and polished, but once I got the Raider polished up the Harley didn't look so good anymore.  ;D
Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

Now... you just need:
  • Skull air intake
  • Skull headlight
  • Skull exhaust tips
  • Skull turn signals

That air intake is freaking HUGE!!!

I don't want to go too crazy with skulls, but this place definitely has some cool options.
