    Ha, to both of you.

    Still have quite a bit more work....

    I've thrown out many of my old plans and am going a completely different direction. Bike is going to be white. More chrome, not less. More red/cranberry leather. Etc.

    By the way, on the white bikes, do they paint the bottom of the fenders the same as the top?

    Here is the current state of the new digital dash. Trying to make a final decision on whether to:
    • Cover it in the cranberry leather
    • Paint it white like the rest
    • Cover it in carbon fiber
    Thinking of doing the first, and if I don't like it, peeling it off later and finishing it off some other way. For example, leaving the cowling leather and making the bottom part of the dash (where the new switches will be going) in carbon fiber. I think that both the cranberry and the carbon fiber will pop against the white.

    Thoughts?

    Bought one of these today.



    Victory LED Replacement Specifications:
    - Number of LEDs: 8
    . High Beam: 40W , Low Beam: 20W
    . Operating Voltage: 9-32V DC
    . Color Temperature: 6000K
    . Luminous Flux: 3450LM(High beam), 2800LM(Low beam)
    . 30000 hours above life time

    But, as you can see from the pic, in high beam, both high and low are on, throwing 6250 lumens. Effective lumens might be around 4000. Will be interesting to see how this compares to the Cyclops Phoenix. It doesn't have a halo, but you can't have everything.

    Cyclops Phoenix Specifications:
    - Raw Lumens: 4210
    - Effective Lumens: 2947
    - Number of LEDs: 5
    - Input Voltage: 9-32 Volts DC
    - Current Draw: 1.1 Amp Low, 1.5 Amp High, 0.2Amp Ring
    - Operating Temperature Range: -40C to 85C

    Thanks Chilly for the headlight bucket and adapter.  8)

      Was able to purchase a backrest like the one in this picture on the cheap. I've looked over some of the gallery, and I can't find any examples of this backrest with a luggage rack. Is there such a thing?

      The picture shows a luggage rack ... ?

      Okay, that's odd in multiple dimensions. I thought that was the part of the bumper on the 4wheeler behind it. But, it hardly makes sense that the 4wheeler would be screwed into the backrest on the Raider. I need more sleep.

      Okay, I'm finally getting time to put back into this project. I painted the tins ice-flake white and have taken them to the painter for the custom work. I finished assembling everything except the new digital display and fired her up. What a joyous sound. I took her for a spin around the block. Ohhhhhhhhhh YEAH!  I forgot just how fast these beasts are! Of course, you really can't go very far without a gas tank (or a license plate, or a helmet, or.... ).

      I'm also loving this headlamp. It is all kinds of bright. Not sure if I like the difference in the clean white headlight with the yellow passing lights. Maybe new LED bulbs for those in the future?

      I agree, and I think the Yamaha Passing lights compliment it and Visa Versa  8) 8)
