Installed the 150 watt amplifier, in the fairing glove box, to power my sound system. Put power to it and it sounds great! Now I'll let Yamaha do the finale wiring to the battery and switch and I'll be rocking. Rode up to Debarry for a bowl of Cajun Gumbo and some Jumbalaya.

With all the moditis going around, I just painted my extra driving lights ... black  ;D

I also received my license plate bolts and aux headlight connector. I believe my spring or replacement mirrors are in, so it appears that I won't have to wait till spring to get most of my mods done ... not sure if that is good or bad. Can't ride it ... just take it out of the garage every once in a while, fire it up and admire it till spring.  YOu might be a Raider owner when ...  :D  :D

I turned my Raider in for a new front stock rim.  Service has managed to leave tool marks on my rim twice, but they're stepping up.  I'm getting a wheel off a floor raider.  So, a wheel with less miles and a new rim.  It's a win!
Shame it had to come to that, but I guess shame on me for not taking my bike to Tejas ;p
My Baron Shorty should be in today also!!!

soooooo, since its plastic I cant PC it, I
want to make some metal overlays.

what ya think?!
Title: Re: What do you do to your Raider today................
Post by: Geebop on Nov 19, 2009, 12:55:50 pm
That's what I got on mine, It is a very heavy solid one piece over the plastic belt guard, Holes drilled to match the existing ones on there. Great idea to do your own for sure. Mine came as a set. I prefer home design one offs like my swingarm covers any-day. Tooooo Cool Deja! Keep it up. I'm diggin the direction your going.

I love that belt guard you got! That really makes that side of your bike stand out
I wanted one myself,however I did not know the bottom
was an overlay.  Phil just happened to throw my top guard
in with the PC stuff and I love the color so much the gears start
 turning.

I know for sure I am doing all the handmade stuff and
the fender struts, and my inner front pulley cover, where you
have a chrome one.

Drilled out 8 1/2" holes in stock exhaust, then took her out for a spin last night so I could listen, and test for performance change.

Runs like a dream still, and now has a nicer sound.  Not IDEAL sound, but much, much better.  I should have done this 2 years ago when I bought the thing! hahahah

I smiled at it as I walked by to get a couple tools.  It cried...maybe my roof was leaking.  I promised it we would go for a ride as soon as it stops raining and maybe get dynoed.  It likes to be dynoed.

Yeah, Kim doesn't want me to post her photos but she is the better half in so many ways! I don't look so much like a person that would get attention or improve the composition in a shot. She has that thing going on for her. Thanks! Had a great time with Dawn and Phil last night and look forward to meeting more members. We have a huge Toy Run coming up real soon, if more Raider riders can join us we can make quite an impression on the ole' tired iron riders.

A friend of mine and I are fabricating a mount so that I can afix a video camera at little below the headlight or down next to the front axle (possibly off the triple tree or the frame... Not sure when it can be completed, but then again, you have plenty of snow-time left... (sorry for the reminder)

Trying to catch up on some mods.  I ruptured my bicep tendon about a month ago and haven't been able to ride.
I'm all sewn up and waiting for Doc's clearance (or til I can't stand it anymore).  Added speedo face and dash insert from Webslinger (Harley Hunter - speedo and Red Dragon - dash).  Can't wait to go find me some Harleys. :'( :D

Glad to hear Phil was able to 'get'er done'. As far as cold temp riding goes my tradition since '78 has always been to ride out for ice cream when it gets below freezing in Florida. I haven't missed a freeze ride to the Dairy Queen or Steak 'n Shake yet. Any locals care to join me this winter can contact me. The local Steak 'n Shake on east Colonial has my order ready when I roll in on the way to work on subfreezing mornings. Last year I was running late so I got it to go, my shake was rock solid when I got to NASA. It actually got colder as I rode out there. The 808 iron workers thought I blew a head gasket when they saw me trying too finish off the frozen shake that morning.

Glad you are OK. be careful up there.
I fell of twice from a single story. But thats in my business after 15 years it's not to bad.
Better said I slipped and knew I would fall, couldn't stop, so I went into a ski jumping position and jumped when I came to the end of the roof.
I rolled and walked away, no scratch.

Thunder, Swomack, Dreadly, and anybody else I may have missed, I really appreciate the wishes.  Problem is, I'm not a good patient, I need to get back to work, and I love to ride.  I may have to play through the pain.  :P  I was very fortunate, and I don't want to take advantage of that.  I know I won't be able to do anything if I don't give myself some time to heal.  It just can't be too long.

I'll be fine, thanks.  My wife does mow the lawn, remodeled the bathroom,...you get the idea.  I picked a good one.  There was a time she wore a miniskirt and wore it well.  But I don't think our college-age granddaughter would approve of that kind of attire for her now.

Just got back from a ride with ABATE, CMA, FaithRiders, and Red Knights!!!   All met at the courthouse and rode in the X-mas Parade.  Donated total of $4,000. of toys (for X-mas gifts) for the local kids who are less fortunate.  Had a semi flatbed trailer full of toys, bikes, etc.   Had a total of 63 bikes, 2 abreast, for 3 blocks in the parade.  Man was it cold on the way home - 22 degrees with a wind chill of 16 degrees, but all worth it for the kids!! 8)

I've dropped my swing arm and fork tubes at the paintshop to get painted as the rest of the bike.
At the same time I'll get the tank, front fender, and chin fairing fixed to get rid of little scratches and nicks from last riding season.
While she is in parts and pieces, some of them will get chromed within he next couple weeks.
She's a sad sight for now, strapped on a pallet without wheels, forks, etc., but looking forward to a brighter future.

I had to open up the garage and "look at it" before I came to work.  This happens occasionally - just get that urge to check it out.  Rainy weather and no sun is getting to me.  Felt better after looking at it!   ;D

Today was the first day of sunshine in a long time and it was 47 degrees (warm enough to ride) when I got home, but it was near sunset.  By the time I checked the tire pressure and got the bike out of the garage the temperature had dropped to 39 degrees.  I didn't have time to dress for it and get a decent ride in so I just started it and sat on it.   The next three days don't look good, either.  Missed my chance.   :'(

 It was a cold rain all day and the snow stared about 3:30 PM.  We got about 2" in three hours and there is more on the way.  Sigh.

NTX - yeah, welcome to Las Vegas...had to wait 30 min in line just to get a "number" then had to wait again.  Normally my wife does this during the week when it's not as busy.  Unfortunately, they needed to do a VIN inspection which meant I had to take the bike there and kill my Saturday morning.

Deja - My first choice is your grips but knew that I'd never get around to getting the bars fixed and it would end up driving me crazy I so opted for plan B.  Thanks for the advice on the paint - this is all new to me so I appreciate the advice.

sigh ... nice pics (dreadly types as he looks out the window at mounds of snow)  :D

today:
* I repainted my dash for a second time.
* Did some researching on adding nitrous to my bike.

Oh ... I shoveled the snow on the driveway so my bike could be started without choking out the wife and daughter wanting to use the car.  ;D

One more week - Christmas done. Another week after that, New Years and wife's birthday done ... I can then get down to some serious wishing for spring.  :praying:

J1, I would have went with those Kuryakens for sure
if it hadnt been for 808. I love the look so much that
the grips dont bother me....I'm going with it! You are
well on your way for sure! Any other questions dont
hesitat! Phil has those same pipes and that was one
of the first things he did was to paint that shield. Some
just take it off. It didnt bother me cuz my pipes cover it
anyhow, he took it off and painted it anyhow!

Ray says he needed confessional after eating those pastries!
It was surely a nice day and nice ride. Ray we did see the video

I was going to take it to the track this weekend to get some E/Ts, but wouldn't you know it, the one day I wanted to go is the day it rained ALL DAY.

Want to get good at launching it and see how close I can get it to 12 flat before I start with the mods.  You know, for that 'before and after' feel.

Hope you liked the videos! my favorite is the tunnel vid because it's so colorful,. The snow vid had the low rez setting by mistake or it would have been better. Your bike looks great in your photos Deja! Post some now that your new toy is online. I took a few shots today for Vintage to photo shop my Custom Avatar. Still haven't decided on which ones to send. Need more opinions about the best angle to use for the fast bagger.

He cuts the bike out of any picture given, so it's best to get the shot that shows the bike the best - I would assume the bigger and closer the better and then he can capture it and put a background of his choosing.

I told it that Saturday looked like a day to ride.  Temps in the 50's and no rain. 
It smiled. 
It doesn't know it's getting a new seat for Christmas.

Post by: Fasthotrod on Dec 22, 2009, 09:13:21 pm
I just about dumped her... I needed a shoe horn to pull the seat out of my butt!

I was out riding with a friend and I took a corner under bad road conditions.  There was a wet spot and the rear tire kicked out in a right turn.

Ever seen the guys run flat track?  That was me... turning right, handlebars full left, bike lower than I have ever seen it.  I got so low, I scraped the footpeg mounting bracket.

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2633/4206704561_5bb431ec59_b.jpg)

You can see where I scraped the pavement... there is a big silver spot on the peg bracket beside the exhaust pipe.  My bro said I was throwing all kinds of sparks.

I just hit the gas and got her back upright... but daymn was it close!

No, in fact I have chrome covers I installed over them. If you look, you can tell which seal is leaking in this pic.

What's with the fork seal replacements?  I've had my Raider 16 months and not had a problem?  Is there a mod you've done that has caused this issue?

Put my fork back on, waiting for primer and paint from Color Rite, got out PC V and autotune, read thru instructions and put some of it together. It really doesn't look difficult to do at all. Mostly connectors, and adding the components.

In the process of getting the plate wiring measured up, I accidentally chipped the belt cover ... so I have to paint that again.

I completed my PC V, and Autotune installation, fired it up, and ran it a bit, watching the read out on my laptop. I was able to enable my Autotune, so it can begin sampling. I set it to reach 150 degrees, before it starts the sampling too. Next thing on the list is the Barons BAK, and Blaster Taillight.

Right!  :D RR, this is cool to be on this end of things, and read about you doing you're own mods. I must have been outa touch, cause I honestly had no idea that all motorcycle riders, didn't do their own wrenching, until I got involved online in these forums. Way to go Bro!

Jacked her up on wood and did a 26,000 mile oil change, added a magnet to the end of the oil filter,, to pull the small metal particles away from the internal elements, cleaned the case vent filter, reglued the screen on the chin spoiler, checked the belt tension, repacked the hard bags, and tomorrow I'll get the bugs off of it and shine her up for some more fun in the sun.

I got the HID headlamp kit, but I haven't had time to install it yet. I also got some driving lights, but I figured I would wait on those until I get the HID headlamp installed.

I'll be sure to do some more 'How-To' write-ups as I go along.  :thumbs:

Today I put the PCS Slam kit on & a new Metz-240 & all i can say is thx for everyones comments on the Slam kit being so great cuz I was very hesitant on installing the dog bones & lowering due to being afraid of scraping the pegs alot in turns.

    Iam so glad I did the full kit, it is way more comfortable going over smaller to medium size bumps & looks a hell of alot better now & the 240 Metz with the PCS Slam Kit it is a perfect combo-mod and iam sure happy with todays huge difference ~~~~~~~~~ :raider:

sigh .... rode to the local coffee shop, grabbed a coffee, then handed out the manual to all the onlookers.  :rotfl:

Sort of a FAQs. Ok, I didn't but if I had somewhere to store them, I'd make them up and hand them out.

but really, I don't tire of being sort of in the lime light so to speak. Funny ... had a black guy tell me my bike was dope. I, being more white than black, said "I've got to represent the brothers" I think it went over well because his reply was "you do your thang dog"

Woof!

A mentioned last year I was riding with a Fury owner. He's done quite a bit to his bike and I think it's sort of like a competition. He's the electrician for our office and all winter long he'd stop by and we'd compare notes on what's changed on our bikes. At a stop light yesterday, I think it finally dawned on him, he's riding with royalty. He says, "man, you bike gets a lot of attention, doesn't it" I could only shrug my shoulders and smile.

This bike is just TOO much fun. LOVE IT!!

well, I took everything off the handlebars, pulled the wires through.
Had to take the tank completely off to disconnect all the quick connects
and pulled them through the bars. Took the clamps off and put the new
ones on. Getting her ready for the big day. Now I have to get the old
swingarm off and ready to accept the new powdercoated one ;D

If i recall correctly BMS offers this as a service in their catalog.  Filling in the tank and adding a popup gas cap.

 Well I got my Tank,fenders & such back from Paint,Not really to happy about the job they done but I guess it will have to do for this summer.Bought more paint than need so I could Paint some on whels etc. but they mixed it ever bit. Dupont Chromabase only has 8 hour pot life( must be used in 8 hours)so heres a quart of paint gone to waste.So I am just sticking back together for now and will redo myself & finish mod's come late fall.When ya want it right just do it yourself,quality work is hard to find these days !

Yeap still working on my lights. I shorted out some wires and fried my kuryakyn run/turn/brake module and installed a new one. The new one is a little different then the original, but I am sure it is installed correctly however it still will not work.

Kurt with Sumo-X has been a great help and is sending me a new run/turn/brake module to install. I am hoping it is just bad module and not bad wiring :D :D :D :D

On our Long Boat key ride today we saw this and I had to stop for a photo op'. The SNOTHOG has a bigger motor, longer wheel base, is more fun, not as fem' and gets better mileage too! We also saw this odd as hell tree out there near our hotel and couldn't figure out what it was.

I rode my beast today hard & at one red light on the take off she damn near kicked me off the back when i popped the clutch & hammered it a bit.

  Iam going to have to say that i am not used to the 240 Metz back there & instead of spinnin a bit on the take off , it fully completely hooked up & the front wheel came up about 3 or 4 inches.

  I cannot believe how this tire hooks up compared to the 210, its a huge traction improvement & it seems more fun to corner with in tight turns.

  O yeah , installed left grip throttle boss & having both is wonderful to have on this bike !

Got ride of the noise from my idler wheels....yeah. When Sumo-X put on the 300 kit the rear pulley is further out from the center of the bike than standard. To match the front drive pulley with the 300 rear pulley Sumo-X had to extend my front pulley about an 1" (not quite sure how much). In doing so he installed a longer dowel which the white plastic idler wheel spins around. To keep the plastic wheel from moving side to side he made a steel spacer to take up the empty space. Well the steel spacer was a little sloppy and was rattling around when I decelerated and the stack belt hit the idler wheel and made the steel spacer rattle on the dowel.

I am sure this is hard to image.....but long story short. NO MORE NOISE ;D ;D ;D

Ordered new wrap around from blinkers from Tejas Motorsports!!!!

Rolled it outside to unpack, thin out and clean up the garage so I could put a bunch of stuff in storage. Then fired it up and rolled it all the way back up the drive way. Going to get up at 6am and get her cleaned up to ride with a new Raider friend in our area named Gordan. He's a retired vet and has a Candy Red '09 S with the PCV, Auto Tune and the Vance and Hines BR. Met a good looking couple named Alex and Sherrie earlier today in traffic on a sweet and new  Tommy Blue that he had shipped in from Ohio. So yet another local Raider owner in central Florida representing nicely. They were so happy to be on the new bike. He told me it was a Star Raider with a lot of mods on the way, and I said "Yes I know, I have one too but mine is a dresser." That got a peculiar facial expression from him. Guess I should have mentioned that I modified it to make it a bagger, because I don't think he believed me. All the talk happened at a red light so it was very brief. I DID pimp our forum tho, so hopefully he'll come on board with us.

Yesterday, I scored a great deal on a Kuryakyn 9007 side tag mount with a built in tail/brake light and mounting hardware. Retail is about $130-145 for the tag mount, and $20-25 for the Yamaha bracket. I got the whole deal for just over $100 after tax. (35% off at "Chaps My Ass" down in Medicine Park, OK.)

I spent today removing the rear seat, cutting off the rear tag and plastic, and fitting the tag to the bike. Ended up removing the belt guard and making an aluminum raceway (conduit) for the tag light wiring, and relocating the rear signals down by the rear passenger pegs.

Yea, I know...

Rode with retired Naval Electrical and Electronics Instructor Gordan. Went to Sweet Mama's for some real good fud! He has a sweet S model that he bought new and is riding it RT to Buffalo NY this summer. I hope he'll make a stop in Asheville on the way up or back. I liked the chrome tag frame assembly he put on and the very adjustable Kury floor boards too. Besides the mods you see here he has the QR Yammy backrest and a tour pack that goes on the buddy pad. I tried to encourage him to sign on with us, and maybe he will. I think he'll come out for Porkies Bike Night soon too.

He looked closely but didn't say much. His wife never rides so it's a solo thing for him, and he's about where he wants to be with most of it. Her had Chilly's BA Cruise Control, which he really liked a lot, on his Kury grips. Some more bling is coming but he's not in a rush. He works now at our local Lowe's. Nice to have someone on the inside. I sure hope you're doing better today than last week. Gonna miss you if you can't come out and play.  :(

I installed the Kury fender kit several weeks ago. Today I cut the stock sub fender so it mount under the fender and protects the blinker, brake and license plate wiring. Works well, glad I thought of it. Actually one of the posts here made me think of it. This site is great.

Sorry to hear... but for what it's worth it's somewhat common. Most ulcers are caused by bacteria... and are quite treatable. Just two weeks of treatment can cure it, once they figure out what type of culture it is and how to kill it.

Good luck!

Anyway, she's riding with me back to Kansas City in June, so I'm putting my money into creature comforts and transforming Ruby's attitude to a more docile touring bike.....just until we get back from the trip though; then I'm giving her attitude back!!!  O8O O8O O8O

Ya, I got a bit of a ride in. I recently bought a used 2008 red S with 3990 miles with some insurance $. It has been rather therapeutic for me. My wife and I are planning a ride on Sunday with my brother, and his girlfriend.

I rode my bike today!

Stripped off the "touring" items (giving Ruby her attitude back for only a day) and went on a 400-mile ride with distantThunder and HighDesertRaider. Highlight was having a guy at the restaurant ask us to turn around while he got on his "girl" bike --- his "girl" bike happened to be a HD 1200 Sportster.

Thank you, RSR ... and it's wonderful to hear YOU are back on the road again too!  I'm sure all of us here are SOOO happy to hear this from you ;D  I have lots of riding planned for this summer including lots of club rides, several smaller weekend trips, a 5 day trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and our big one of this season - a 10 day trip through Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks.  I plan to get as much riding in as I can before the snow flies - our season is way to short for me.

Road to Daytona, since I'm working there for the next 7 months, and the job foreman is now second guessing his '09 Heritage Softail. He might get a Raider and make a street fighter out of it. He gets all giddy and riled up at the site and sound of the SNOTHOG each day, so I'll probably seal the deal with a bike trade for a few miles tomorrow. He'll want to just get rid of that 59 HP, 79 ft/lbs of torque on a 96 ci motor that he is on now after feeling the true fun of riding a real bike that is well designed, engineered, balanced and powered.  :'(

Went outside to ride it.  But when I went outside it felt like stepping into an oven.  Quick look at weather.com showed that it 'feels like' 108 degrees, with 99 percent humidity.

I promptly let it sit there idle and went back inside.

  Problem solved just got off the cell with an old buddy. We'll be riding down to his place on the waccamaw river.He got a nice cabin and his back deck floats on the water. He wants us to come over and stay for supper. Says he's gonna grill some steaks and already has the beer on ice for the guys and being the good friend he is he even threw a 12 pack of cokes in for me.

Rotated the bars back a bit.  Not really sure how I like it, yet, I might rotate them back.  It didn't really do a whole lot as far as reach goes because it angled them further down which promotes me being more hunched over.  Feels too much like a sportbike now.  I think I might buy some pullback drag bars for it.

Installed Kuryakyn chrome cigarette lighter on handlebars, took tank off & ran simple wiring to battery terminals & zip tied it all real nice.   Being a chronic cigarette smoker i got tired of trying to light a cig on a windy day & also it can charge cell phone, i-pod etc on the fly .

Finally after 6300 miles my rear tire was worn enough to replace.  So today I came home with the 240 and while there picking up the Raider I ordered the clutch upgrade and have it on the way.  Next spring I will riding around with the new Barons Big air kit and the clutch upgrade added to everything else I have done.

Moved it about 50 yards just in time to avoid the fling shrapnel, glass and car parts from a head on collision last night, when I first rolled up to the crane on the I-95 bridge project, and then this morning when I went to leave I had to make my first real road side repair in 29,000 miles :flame: :witsend:. It was a Kury Flamed shifter rod that I was able to mount by cutting of the OEM ball pivots and drilling and tapping the uprights links to accept the HD All threaded ends and their pivots that are 90 degree styled. Well the all threaded posts one each end are actually a threaded tube, not a solid threaded post. The one on the front sheared off. Used an easy out to remove the broken piece and filed down the remaining section and reattached it. Was able to get enough threads in each end to make it hold and it got me home. Gotta get a plain light straight rod that can take the place of the heavier Flamed one in case the other end breaks too. Put 150 miles on it since last night at Porkies. Was good to see PJ, his hot wife Stacey and the ever so popular Dawn the Porkies Bike Night Droolee Queen.

Installed Yamaha quick release base w short upright today & iam super happy with the look of it . Still need the Pillion pad to come in , but very impressed with the workmanship that Star is putting out these days . I opened up everything at dealer to check if any chrome was defective & its all 100% mint condish ;D    Boxes were stamped March/24/2010 so iam thinking they might have stepped things up a little in the chrome dept. Whatta chunk of chrome this unit is WOW~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :raider:

UPS man is my new Santa Claus, came yesterday and dropped off the VH BR2-1, PCV, Autotune, and lots of chrome goodies. 

Took the VH BR2-1 into a local machine shop to have the o2 sensor bung drilled and tapped for the autotune wide band.  I then went home and chromed the left side, with a belt cover, rear axel cover, and frame rail cover.  Then i drove back up to the machine shop, and saw that my pipe hadn't moved in four hours >:(  >:(  >:( so I stopped in at the local Harley shop and picked up a lighted chrome license plate bracket for $36 and proceed to cut and trim the beaver tail till she looks good (pay close attention to which blinker goes on which side, it sucks big time to take the taillight assembly off to ensure the left blinker don't blink when you press right. .  Installed the PCV and Autotune (Super easy).  Stood back and admired my handy work as I cussed the machine shop for not finishing my pipe today.  Maybe tomorrow they say....

Hopefully I will have the  VH BR 2-1 installed tomorrow, then I get test ride :raider:  Then I will take pictures!

went for a 100 mile ride and the turn around area was THE ice place around these parts - milkshake I had was pretty good. On the ride back, found out my side license plate is worth about ......... ummmm $115  :D  Could have gotten a ticket for the tinted markers ... no reflectors and possibly the muffler if they so choose to. I was nice as I could be. The officer asked "Why is your license there?"
I replied "because I like the look"
He said "are you telling me or asking me" in a fashion to get some kind of reaction I think. So as nice as I could be, I replied "you asked why I put my plate there, and my response was because I like the look"

And from there he had another officer give me his opinion on the rest of the items one by one. I said as long as I'm not getting a ticket, I'll race home and make the changes ...  :D

I got in about 75 miles today, with my Brother. Stopped by the Yammi dealer for some fork oil, and they had a BBQ going, and lots of bikes pushed out front in the parking lot. We went in for the oil, came back out, had all sorts of droolers checking BadAttitude out. So we sat down with a hot dog and watched for a few, guys from the dealership was over checking it out too. Got a lot of nice complements. The bike should be near it's final stage in about a week, at that time, I'll post some pix.

LOL ... he suggested I change my plate location, add reflectors, and replace the tinted markers. Also added I might want to come to the 'education setup' where they will measure the exhaust. I said "Oh, you bet. I have all the original stuff and will replace it when I get home"  :D

At $115, the plate will stay where it is. The only reason he pulled me over was because I choose to 'catch up' to the missus. If I hadn't done that, I would be $115 richer ...

Went to the local Tim Hortons, and the talk is about the new noise bylaw. There is a petition being circulated to squash this bylaw that only goes after motorcycles. The city needs 79,000 signatures by end of July before they will look at the bylaw again.

I educated the lady Raider owner I met tonight on the spike her husband have on order is only for show.  :givemebeer: He told me he bought a new air cleaner for her bike. Surprised, I asked what kind. He said a spike. I said you know that is only for show, right. He said, no, it bolts here and replace the air cleaner. I explained where the filters were and he was a little surprised. She said it was all good that it looked cool. I said yep, I like them. If I had a S version, I would think about getting one.

Back on topic,

Today I ended up drilling and tapping the hole for my Autotune myself, as the machine shop wouldn't be able to get to it till next week.  Then I installed the V&H PR2-1 only to find out that there is no way the wide-band oxygen sensor from the Autotune will clear the transfer case cover in the original location.  Now I have to take it all back apart and have the bung hole moved back about 3/4 of an inch.  I did get in a nice test ride, and I have to say I really like the sound of the 2-1, and the extra power is nice too.

Actually this was all yesterday but I didn't get to post. Gave it a good douche and a blow dry to make it look presentable for the weekend. Mounted my Power Point on the bars, found the best mount for the GPS that our talented and very funny forum brother JP is letting me use, decided where to mount the little 808 Car Keys Minicam that I'll be using too. Put the stuff back in the Corbin bags that I had emptied so they could mount my new Cobra 240. I think the right bag needed to come off. Then stood back and bonded with it for a twilight moment. :dreaming:

I put on a Dunlop E3 rear tire , I had the Shinko's on it but at bikenight the owner of a shop here in town said if I would do a sick burnout he would give me a tire for free  8) well everyone around here call's me the Burnout King ...LOL
So far the Dunlop seems fine ? but I think I will put the Shinko back on the bike it had 2,500 miles on it and my burnout went for about a 1 1/2 min in 3rd gear. and I liked the feel of the tire, it hooks up real good.
I have Shinko's on my sons bike also if I did not trust the tire I would have never done that .
and the stock tire only lasted me 2,800 mile and it was bald...

Well today I pulled off my brand new VH BR 2-1 so I can have a bung welded in the correct position for the Autotune.  Then I took the passenger seat and pegs off, looks good now I need to find some chrome bolt covers or spikes to fill the holes.  I also painted the rider seat bracket black so you can't see shinny metal sticking out from under the seat.  Five more days and the PR big air kit, PCS slam and grips come in!  I can't wait to get it all together and go ride!

Rode to Nashville last night, went to eat with the GF.  Headed home in the bugs and then rode to work this morning.  Only passed a State Trooper at 85 in a 55.  Waved as I went by to let him know I seen him and slowed down waiting on blue lights to come up behind me.  NO blues so I was ok with that.  I better watch it and not get wrapped up in the awesome power of the Raider and want to twist on it all the time.

Very very easy to do. Just this morning I was running 75 in a 60 and passed a Trooper sitting in the median. He made a U-turn into my direction, I pulled into the station and waited for him to come get me. He pulled up next to me at a pump with no lights on, told me to watch out he is out here on a regular basis and he wouldn't want my nice shiny bike to be wrecked because of speeding, then he went on his way. Whew, dodged a bullet on that one!

Today, for my Raider, I re-did my Reaper Tips because I let a rubber patch off my jacket get on one and melt onto there. I tried everything I had to get it off but was unsucessful. Oh well, only ended up costing 45 bucks for 4'' truck tips to replace the others. I couldn't ride around with that ugly stain on my top tip anymore.

Rode it to work again today and watched the heavy rains give it a massive soaking for a bout 30 minutes. was all dry by 6pm when I came down from the tower. One of the many HD riders there said he has a harley that he wants to race me on. He doesn't have a blower, NOS or a Mr.Turbo kit, so I think I'll be have some more well done pavement smoked pork soon.

A week ago I got a new rear tire, and yes I did go to the 240. Yesterday the clutch  pressure plate for the double clutch conversion arrived and finally dropped the money and got the Barons big air kit ordered and on the way hope to see it in about a week.  In the mean time I am still experiencing spacial disorientation.  My drive to work is still only 12 miles but the ride home always adds 40 or more to odometer.

Pulled into my driveway today after a long night out last night.  A bit hungover, so my finely honed situational awareness gained from my many years of cruising the streets of suburbia, wasn't functioning properly.  Some guy and 2 others in an economy car got the drop on me, before I knew he he was pulling into the driveway next to me and blipped the horn at me.  I spun around and began to move to cover, contemplating my next move.  Do I run inside and make for the rifle, standing off fortified in my house with thousands of rounds of ammo - do I think I can fumble my keys out quick enough?  Do I take back off on the bike and pit my Raider's superior motor against his 4-wheeled death machine in a high-speed chase - crap, I'm not sure if I can disable his vehicle with my sidearm at 100MPH from my bike!  Or do I take cover behind my Buick and make my final stand right then and there in defense of my life?  It was just me and my sidearm, and I had no alternative but to....

Anyways, before I can make up my mind this gentleman waves at me and asks, "Hey, I been looking all over the internet about that bike, I can't find out what kind it is.  Can you tell me?"

"Oh, its a Raider.  Yamaha Raider." I reply, still wary of the man's close proximity to me, and eyeing his two possible accomplices in the car with him.

"Oh, Raider?  very nice!" he says.  He thanks me and backs out of the spot and drives off.  His wife and kid wave to me as they drive away.

I stroll inside and grab a Gatorade.  Crisis averted.

Yesterday me and the fiancee left at 7:30 rode to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.  Left there for the last ride on the stock 210.  Hit the interstate at about 80 for most of the way.  The whole time thinking I hope this tire holds until I get to the dealer.
Arrived at the dealer safe and sound first one in and got my 240 installed.  Mechanic made the statement that this 240 after he mounted it and balanced it out.  He said he took off weight that was there before and that it didn't need much weight at all to balance it out. 
The ride home was different than I was expecting there was no transition in the curves like the 210 it was all smooth riding.  In my mind the 210 is a total waste of a tire.

Rode in to work. (I've ridden in everyday this week!)  Flipper is right.  It was cold in middle Tennessee this morning. Made for a great ride in though.

If you're using the VHT tint, try just two coats. Let it sit and see how you like it. But for $4 total for the lenses, you can make tints of different levels and choose as you see fit LOL

I believe you can do that. I've always sanded the surface lightly. See if you can get another set from where ever you buy parts from. The lenses themselves are cheap (I think I paid $5 and change for two). You can test out sanding vs non sanding.

I sanded enough to take the raised lettering down, washed it, sprayed it twice ... let dry ... hit with several coats of satin clear.

 ;) Lets see.  I just picked her up late yesterday afternoon.

1.  At 5:50 AM opened the inside garage door to see if she was still there.  Whew, she was, their for awhile I thought I was dreaming.

2.  7:30 AM, cleaned and polished bike, it rained on the way home yesterday.  One thing that really bothers me is seeing dirty (abused) bike on the road.

3.  Will ride to gas station and fill tank.  The darned dealer gave me less than a quarter of a tank of  fuel.

4.  Will take a ride when chores are done.

5.  Take a long nap, just writing about all these things makes me tired!

We're getting ready for the Raider Rally and this year I wanted a bit more on-board storage for the all-day ride in the mountains, so I mounted the EASY brackets and my new river Road bags.  Got too dark and started to rain.  Maybe the picks will come tomorrow, but not on this thread.

Put in K&N filter, stuck baffles back into Cobra Slashdowns and took her for a short ( 4.8 miles, lol. ) spin.

I had the Cobras on for a long time now and ran them w/o baffles then with back to w/o. Could not tell a whole heck of a difference before although some. A while back I bought a Cobra Fi2000r from another forum member and that didn't seem to make much of a difference.

Now let me tell you, with the K&N filter and baffles it's a whole new beast. I guess just the combo of all it has a lot more bottom to mid range punch. Man I wish I had been able to do this a lot sooner but I am doing this a little bit at a time.

I got the pipes from sfcrick through a trade and only have about $20 into them. Bought the Cobra Fi2000r on here through classifieds for $50. K&N from D2moto along with K&N oil filter for right at $55. So I am doing OK with my very tiny Jalapeno plant sized money tree.

OH YEAH, changed to a Castrol Synthetic blend oil yesterday. Seems a little smoother. Well know how much better all works together after this weekend when I ride to Little Rock, Fort Smith then home.

I took apart the headlight and looked into installing the HID kit, but I need to get some wiring to make it work right. I want to hide the ballast up under the tank or seat instead of up by the neck. I'll put together a how-to when I get the parts I need.

no room in the headlight bucket for the ballast.  I ended up with the ballast mashed between the frame and the airbox and the relay tucked into the neck. 

as for me- i installed cobra highway bars today.  picked them up on craigslist for $15 :D

No doubt, dude. I had a bracket figured out that sat behind the headlight bucket, but it just didn't look right.

The HID kit I have is the H4 dual kit, which keeps the HID lit for both low and high beam. It has a slim balast, and the lamp wiring has some kind of device in-line... which totally screws with things. I found some high voltage wiring on EBay that is 4' long, which should allow me to put everything under the seat or tank.

I could have gone the 'easy' way and went with a HID low beam and a halogen high beam... but I wanted it to be HID all the way. We'll see what happens.

I've got the same kit and absolutely love it. During rallies guys can pick me out of the line a mile out.  I wasnt able to hide all the connectors.  The ballast between the airbox and frame as mentioned.  The relay itself is hidden between the cables leading to the neck and frame and the box you speak of was able to be stuffed in the neck.  All the leads except for the blue/red connectors were long enough to make in inside the bucket.  If the other two start to bother me ill wrap them in the plastic wrap to blend in.    I can supply pics tomorrow if you'd like.

Deja sounds like the shop doesn't know how to do bearings to me. The easiest way to take out a bearing is to pop the race out and weld a line around half the outer and it will just fall out. Put the new bearings in teh freezer for a while till they are nice and cold and they should slip right in with minimal persuasion, and no damage to your wheels.

Added K&N Filter and a few holes to the top of my air box. Also added the Cobra FI2000.  Did a few test runs and still trying to fine tune the bike. I don't have the O2 censor version of the FI2000 so I disconnected my O2 censor and trying things out....  Thanks TEJAS for quick service and even a phone call to check up and see if things are going ok.  My 9yr old son went out with me on the bike and had a blast as well.

I had bought a mustang vintage 2 up touring seat online. After buying it I called the place to see about 2 day shipping. They assured me everything was good and would have it in 2 days....8 days later I was still waiting for it, called them and asked where the hell is my seat?! They replied, its still waiting to be shipped from the factory! I replied, "How the hell do you tell your customers that you have something in stock, tell them it will be shipping out that day when you dont have it?!" Cancel order/Refund! So I ended up taking my yami 2up comfort touring seat  to Real Deal Customs  aka "The Seat Dr."and had gel pads added to both of them, since they're both like sitting on concrete...I am glad I didnt get the mustang. WOW, what a difference!...saved myself $150!!! I now have a happy-ass!  :yay: :yay:

I installed my Boomerang Frame Cover, My new chrome belt guard, my brake and clutch master cylinder covers and a subfender curved license plate bracket.

I've been staring at the chrome caliper covers for over an hour now, and I just can't decide if I want them on there or not.  Yesterday, yes, but today I'm not so sure.  That double sticky tape doesn't appeal to me a whole lot, and I'd never hear the end of it if I dropped a piece of chrome while I was rolling down the road after the hell I give my HD buddies. :D

Hmm, what's next?  probably the power commander so I can get rid of this annoying pop on deceleration ;)

Well as Roxie stated we were SUPPOSED to slam my bike yesterday.   >:( >:( >:( WELL THAT freaking didn't happen.  The dog bones for Pacific Coast weren't the right ones ??? ???.  The ends were the pin goes through wasn't drilled out to the proper diameter so that was a freakin bust.  Put it all back together and installed some LEDs to shine on the engine.  Went for a ride and got drenched to the bone.  Stopped at Sloans Yamaha for a dry place and looked around.  Headed out I lost headlight and turn signals.  Got home tore it apart to see what was going on and everything started working again.  Beats me!!!  I must have a short someplace or another.
Today I let it sit in the sun and get tanned for Ashville lol!!!

Thats the funny thing.  It blew the tail fuse first with the blinkers not working then the headlight went out and no blinkers or dash lights, but the signal fuse blew.  They would blow opposite which I don't understand.  Going to add another wire tomorrow to finish installing a LED for my license plate.

Using a bar of clay to lift up all the dirt and contaminants in the paint to make it ultra smooth.  I mainly did it because I removed all the stickers and tank chrome.

Rode to the dealer in a down pour.  Soaked to the core AGAIN!!  Got the major service done for the 8000 mile mark but over it by several miles (9643) opps!!!  They even replaced a bolt that I didn't even know was the wrong one they did such a good job checking over the bike.  

While at the dealer Kim looked at many different bikes, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Hondas.  Well also one Hardley too.  She fell in love with the Yamaha 650 Custom.  Looks like as soon as she takes the MSF course we will have another bike in the stable.

the stockers. Man those things are heavy compared to the new ones. The bike is running amazing, and has so much power, especially being that I had lost some low end after I drilled out the baffles.

Today was a day I really wanted to ride. Didn't really do much but when I did it was fun. I only did about 20 miles today on the bike and it was tonight. I let the house and was going up the road to circle K when I Yamaha R6 came up to me.  The guy was smiling with his girl on the back. Light turned Red we stopped he said nice bike I said thanks.  I asked what yr his was and he told me it was a 2007.  When the light turned green I pulled up in front at a normal pace  he then procceeded to run his engine like he wanted to race as we approached the next light it turned green I dropped down a gear and opened her up.  Didn't see the R6 again.  It was nice!!!!!!  :neener:

Yesterday I was cleaning the bike up for a ride and a buddy asked how it looked without the front fender, so i took it off and then put it on backwards. It looked good except for the "curve" part of it....so we chopped it off!!! This is what we came up with.....oh and we cut out an inch of the kick stand, now it don't sit up right too much!! ;D

It went very badly!  :D :D

I'm only laughing so that I don't cry.  I snapped a bolt (guess I don't know my own strength), and one of my fuel shutoff valves ripped its seal as I went to open it back up.  So now Roxie is out of commission until the part gets in from Japan.   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

hell no its not! my local dealer tried to pull the same crap on me. buy the barnett kit have it installed or do it yourself. if you have low miles on your bike you probably haven't worn the friction plates and steels at all so why replace whats not needed.

Rode up to Denton, bought some things from Cuervo and now have chrome levers and cobra bungee nobs on my bike. I also ordered a Elite 3 240 and Dyna beads on Friday. Keep the last part quite, someone doesnt know yet....
Did you find chrome levers or have your OEM's chromed? 

I dropped my bike off at Tejas... to have the swing arm painted. 
Bought Kury models that Cuervo had

Between you and me (and I guess the rest of the forum-  ;D) I think listening to your wife is a good idea.  I'd really like to meet you but... ??  As the saying goes... God works in mysterious ways.  I'd hate for you to show up and then something happen.... ya know?  There will be other rides.   Either way... if not next week-end, some other time... we'll meet.  :thumbs:

Rode it to the shop to warm up the oil then changed the oil and filter, cleaned the crankcase vent breather filter, checked my brakes. The rear brakes and rotor are toast! Got to get new brakes next week end. Checked the air. Charged up the MP3.

Rode 250 miles this weekend.  50 of those miles through one of the worst rainstorms I have ever rode through.  Got my zombie medallions in for the cam cover and thinking real hard about putting them on right now.  While I am at it will remove the SAC as I am not really liking the look of it over the stock cover.

The wife and I red into town went to a car dealership wher I drooled all over a green corvette, and then went down the street and drooled all over a red mustang, and all the time hearing no you can not buy it >:(.  Then we went to the sportsman warehouse and got some reloading supplies and my moose and caribou tags.  Then we rode to an ice-cream store and I plied my wife with her favorite flavor and she still said no to corvette or the mustang. >:( >:(. Should have spent the ice cream money on ammo :D. Then we rode to friends house and then went out to burger joint, the wife still said no to the cars.   So we rode home and I put stuff away, and was glad she at least let me get the raider, cause it is a fun ride.

Went from Key West up to Mile marker 88 it was a really nice ride up. My wife and I had to eat lunch and leave didn't get to stay cause my wife had to work at 3pm. Lets just say when I left the clouds opened up and cried all the way back to the keys. It wasn't fun at all. Got home in time to throw the wet clothes off and get my wife in the car and drive her to work with 3 mins to spare...

I zipped around and took I-244 to save me some hassle and to not dodge flying bullets. So, I took the detour and started into a construction zone.

I got her up to 70 MPH in fairly heavy traffic, and BANG My rear tire had blown. I didn't drop the Raider, but got it shut down using the front brake and the soles of a now wrecked pair of tennis shoes. Anyone else has this problem??????????????

Today I picked my bike up from the shop.  The new Metz 240 sure does make a difference on the handling.  No more flat spot in the middle, just lots of roundness.  It makes me think of a tennis player; always on the balls of their feet and ready to move any direction!

Post by: Kevin Dixon on Aug 30, 2010, 08:26:39 pm
It rides okay.  Little less turning radius at low speed but nothing I can't deal with.  The bike really likes to lean now.  Took it out for about 15 miles yesterday and all in all it is pretty good.  I am not in any way saying it rides as good or smooth as stock because I would be lying.  But it looks great and I chose to sacrifice a little comfort and quality for show looks.

Joined the 240 Club today :) The dealer let me take a new Star 950 to ride while my tire was installed. 8) 8) Fun little bike, but little is right, compared to the raider :o I could not image a person taller than me riding one and I'm only 5' 10" tall. I definitely would have to put forward controls on it and remove the floor boards my knees were at a 90 degree.

Took a ride down to Cedar Rapids and added some ISO Grips and Swingwing pegs.  I love the grips and can't believe what little vibration the Raider gave off is almost gone.  I have to admit that the highway pegs when pushed out on the swingwing's will take a little getting used to.  Then again it's not like I have experience with other pegs for comfort.  But for a size 13 shoe it's a nice large footing.

Getting on it and heading to Tandy Leather. I know it would be forever for me to wait for the money available to have someone make a cover for my home fabricated seat pan, so I'm going to invest that money in some leather, dye and tools, and make it myself. May take just as long, but as most of you know, I like to make things myself anyway. (Bad habit sometimes)

Finally put on the custom mirrors that Kim bought me for my B'day. Had to reposition the Z-bars to see behind me at all since they have no up and down adjustments on the moveable glass panes. They're just a little smaller but a cool style statement. Put Kim's Corbin backrest back in place and also added my new tag decal since last years was expired. Wiped off the smudges and such from being in the shop most of the week. Can't wait for the ride tomorrow to meet up at Blackwater Inn in Astor.

Finally got around to installing the LED to tell me my cruise control was engaged.  Took it for a ride and made sure it worked and checked the speedo with a GPS.  Gto home, disassemble to adjust the speedo needle and reassembled.  Test and repeat.  Third time was the charm. I think I can disassemble the speedo in my sleep now.

At least I got to ride my Raider today.

I loaded the Fuelmoto map for Zippy and then Zippy and I went for a nice ride to try it out,  We went far enough I had to fill the tank,  We stoppped at Interstate Cycle to see if they could work in a dyno run. They could, so I took the fender off and they ran three puls for me.  As they were backing it off the dyno the chin fairing caught up on the edge of the dyno and broke off.  Adam went right to the L&M website to order a new one.  Zippy and I rode home with a bare frame, but it will be better. 

When I got home, I removed the stirrups ...just too much trouble keeping them aligned.  Npw I'm waiting for tomorrow afternoon to run the rest of the tan kout so I can check the milage with the new map.

You feel the difference in the pressure used to pull lever, holding it, and in the let off.  I did notice that it seems to engage a bit quicker and can be stalled if you unexpectedly let off with it at idle.  As far as getting on the throttle I did not notice any difference in the lower gears and lower rpm.  However  I have noticed that when getting on it at higher speed in the higher gears there was a very slight slippage that was negligible on the stock clutch and did not detect any and the tach did not reflect any slippage with the extra spring plate.  I am very pleased with the final result, and I recommend it to anyone wanting to do a clutch upgrade.

ITs getting the cutting wheel. I wonder what that piece costs new from the dealer. Such a useless part. Thought I am ashamed to admit it I would rather have chromed rotors then that cover plate thingy on there. it would look way cooler

Chromed Rotors = bad idea. 
Looks good on "show" bikes, doesn't "work" good in real life.

I didn't get mine cut off today due to rain...AGAIN! maybe tomorrow

Just put in order ... snowmahas - 240s. They come with heated spikes. Should be here by the time the snow starts flying. No stopping this Raider  ;D

Ok ... there are plenty of things that will stop this Raider  :D and anything below 0 is a dam good start at stopping it.  :D :D

I went with my wife for a ride (she just went through the MSF classes and got her license) she was following me on all the back roads around home she is still getting use to my sons Yamaha 650 custom. We were having a good time but every time we came to a stop she would ask which way we were going. So I finally got mad baled off my bike saying I know I have one of the brightest lights out there. And when I looked at my light it was not working. So we went home and I tore into my Custom LED light. I found that the factory seal was no good on the bottom and has let rain in and had blown the circuit. Hope their customer service is like Tejas

Actually it was yesterday and Phil and Dawn really stepped up again, and basically put the new spring from Chucky on for me while I ran interference on the sidelines and played with Hambone. MAN I WISHED I HAD THIS SPRING ON WHEN I WENT ON THE 12+K RIDE TO NORTH POLE!!!!!!!! It really smooths out the ride and is a little lower too. I have it on a medium setting and will play with it, but I dig the new comfort level! On another note I saw my friend nordicsoul today . He got creamed coming back from Daytona last March and is just now walking, working and riding again. He bought another '09 LS, had it modded up really sweet, and picked it up the other day for the first time. Here's a couple shots of his new beast.

Test fitted it with the shipping crate to make sure the new triple tree and extensions would still let the bike sit in the wheel wells and the frame sits nice on the rubber mounts.  Letting it rest before me and the wife get up at 4am and go for a nice ride to the other side of the island.

Rode to work today again in 45 degree weather.  Gotta love/hate the fall in ways.  Great riding weather but can get awful cold sometimes in the dark shadows and a two-lane road.

It was yesterday . . . I went on the slowest 85 mile ride I've ever ridden on my Raider - but it was also one of the best rides ever.  My youngest son took the MSF Basic Rider course & got his permit (he's under 18) and we went on his first ride out on the roads.  He thought it was way more fun than a parking lot - but way more scary, too.   I took a picture of him on the Rebel all decked out in his gear and will post it when I get home from work today :)

I got my Avon Cobra 250/40/18 installed today. The guy at the dealer asked, "Are you sure it's going to fit??"

Turns out, he was messing with me... good dude.   :D

That 250 is going to take some getting used to... I can tell the difference in acceleration already (slower) but breaking loose the 250 was pretty easy... gotta love the power of this 113!

Here's a conicidence: lady at work wants to go for a ride tomorrow... I said I'd take her to lunch. We'll see what happens.  ;D

She rides good, a little stiff in general, but better than stock on the rough roads. Here's a couple pics. I think this might qualify me for the slammed club.

Very cool. How did you wire it to be on?

Was it as simple as the video made it out to be?
heat seam
pry apart
glue in halo
re-heat seam
put together

heat seam

I tied the wiring to the same wires I used for the LED front lights cause I wanted them to run together. I might change it to run separate but right now I like it how it is.  It is almost just like the video.  when you pull the headlight I thought I was going to have to take the whole thing apart not the case.

1. remove bulb
2.  Metal ring around the glass for headlight Heat for about 2 mins with hair dryer Take note that there is three metal tabs bent over holding ring on plus the goop.
3. Flat tip screwdriver remove metal ring be very careful it has goop on it plus tabs you don't want to bend to much.
4.  Carefully use screw driver to lift glass from its seal, (More Goop.  If need be reheat!!
5. Set Halo inside Headlight make sure that the wire are facing the top of your light!!!! Postion and silicon in place. I siliconed around the whole Halo. Others just do areas. make sure its even and let set. 
6. I bent light bulb tab so the wires would not get pinched as they went threw the headlight housing. Resistor is inside the housing and I connected power to the switch I already had installed. 

Hope this helps some I will try and get some pics up if possible.

Road it to work... While at work of course it rained... When I came home Paid  my son $5.00 to clean the bike and get all the dirt off. And then took my dog and daughter to the Wolf walk... IT was awesome they one First place in the costume category my wife's dog is named Tinkerbell so she dressed the dog up as tinkerbell....  CHAwinny  is the type of dog... My daughter and wife made my daughters costume a jelly fish it was really cool...  They won a $50.00 gift certificate....  When we arrived home the bike was clean so I stared applying Liquid glass.  I know alot of people that have tried it so I  decided to..

After having my bike for 2 1/2 years, today i finally decided to take off the tank chrome!  Looks awesome.  Also took off every last sticker...and yes that included the stupid gas sticker too  :P.  Nothing gets you into the mod mode like hanging out with folks that have done every conceivable mod out there ;D.  Needless to say...i got the fever now  8)

Resistance is futile.....    ;D

It looks like SLK and Eraser did what they could do by taking the wintery temps and conditions for as long as they did. Although the forecast for snow is 5 days away, it's never a good sign when it's even mentioned. We've had single digit temps the last few weeks. Supposed to hit double digits today, so I'm going for what appears to be "the last ride"

Rode it to work and back was suppose to do my WED. ride but I received my BAK and my SAC so I had a install to do today.  I realized when the sun goes down I need light our carport light was not enough. Homedepot I went and purchased some lights. When I came home I did the install and took her for a ride. WOW what a difference.... Can't wait for my ride to work tomorrow!!!... Oh I guess that would be a few hours my time LOL....

I can SO RELATE HERE!  I had a total right hip replacement on 9/21/10.  Now I have a matching pair of steel hips.  The last ride was on 9/10.  Left home about 0515 hrs that day and when I got home at 11:00 PM I had riden 787 miles.  I rode with my neighbor Brad.  We did the 3 sisters from Houston, went to Fredricksburg, Luckenbach and then into Houston on 290.  It was awesome.  It is true, a person can have Raider with-drawal caused by not riding.   ;D

I have started my bike every week to maintain the battery so I can ride.  I put my cane away yesterday and will visit the Dr. for release this afternoon.  I have become cranky, short-tempered and am close to talking to myself.  I will ride before Friday this week.  I almost (almost) snuck out a couple days ago, but I did not my wife to get mad.  Those of you who know Texas women - well.........discretion is the better part of valor in this case.

I did manage to order something from Webslinger and ordered some earplugs from Etymotic the ER-6I.  I cannot wait to ride, but I must wash the bike first.

Ride Safely All,
MD393 :raider:

Removed the IAC and cleaned up that umbilical cord mess in under the frame neck.  What a difference in the throttle response with that IAC out of the system.  The neck of the Raider looked like an octopus was coming out from under the tank and with that all gone, the neck now looks so much better.  Much cleaner looking.

Still have the tank off and so tomorrow it's relocating the left side coils and cleaning up the left side hoses.   Installing the cabling for the Dynojet LCD display and a new left side cover.

Saturday it will be installing the 5" extensions, fixing the damn Kury switchblade pegs, installing LED's.

I just might be able to ride this weekend.....

Not sure I like the way it looks attached to the plastic so I may change that but for now this is it. Only had the raider about 3 months and love it.

I bought the handle bar switches on Ebay from a totaled S Raider.  The switches were scratched and were in horrible shape.   I don't know what the stock S switches are like, but these switches had a varnish on them that was in terrible shape.  The surface of the switches under the varnish are very rough.  I took the switches and sanded them starting with 120 and worked my way to sanding them wet with 600 grit.  I then took them and polished them with two different polishing compounds.

 Casually looking at them, I think they look almost as good as chrome.

Check these out.  I picked up these up on EBay.  The brake mc for $35 and the clutch mc for $69.  Now they are off to the dealer to get new mc kits put in.  I will then do the final polish and then on to the handle bars.  Look ma, no warnings on the mc covers.  I sure hope to remember to put brake fluid in those and not my diet coke! :D

  I know more than one person that put permanent dull marks and scuff on the front fender with the fork bags under the HL bucket. Put something soft under the bottom or keep it very heavily waxed. Now back to the thread, I FINALLY got my chromed front wheel, thanks to our RSR brother woodog and Chip Simmons from Cycle Image. It looks great!

And when I get the 240 tire with cnd, I am thinking about having the BAK and the controler installed.  That should just about do my winter mods for this year.  Then I have to come up with something else for the summer mods thing!!!  LOL ;D

Well, got the 240 Cobra Tire, Baron's BAK, and the PC V installed this week.  Love the sound from the BAK and the look and feel of the 240 tire.

I bought the handle bar switches on Ebay from a totaled S Raider.  The switches were scratched and were in horrible shape.   I don't know what the stock S switches are like, but these switches had a varnish on them that was in terrible shape.  The surface of the switches under the varnish are very rough.  I took the switches and sanded them starting with 120 and worked my way to sanding them wet with 600 grit.  I then took them and polished them with two different polishing compounds.

 Casually looking at them, I think they look almost as good as chrome.

Who's grips are those and where did you get them?  They look great!  I see the pegs and stuff in the pictures, but was wondering if it is a matching set to the grips or a different vender?  It all looks really nice, especially with the polished switch holders.

Today was work day. These are the things I did to my bike:

1. Removed rear rotor shield
2. Installed powder coated foot controls, pegs and levers
3. Installed Barons 3" Tachometer
4. Installed Memphis Speed Demon Windshield

I would have installed the "Hydro Mount" forward controls today as well, unfortunately Raw Designs failed to inform me they were out of the tool bag bar, so now that will be postponed until God knows when. Well, I had planned it so today I could do it all.

But, after all said and done, I have to say.... I am very pleased with the results. I will post pictures only after I'm done with everything and she is washed.

Thanks to everyone who helped me do this. You know who you are.  :thumbs:

gostr8r ... you're one of the lucky ones that has a wife that doesn't mind such antics.  ;D
Yeah, she was there but I couldn't get her in the bikini. Kim has just as good of a body but won't put it out there like that anymore, like she did when we first got together 13 years ago. She's still my trophy wife and I can't wait for you to meet her.

I am a very faithful husband and don't believe in cheating and neither dose she. She's aware that any such act on either of our parts would be a deal breaker. Just looking and even some flirting is ok, up to a point and if it's done in jest, but I admit I am more the flirt than she is. Customers flirt with her at work or when we go out once in a while, since she's still a looker, and I can take it. I just need to always keep her feelings in mind before I react or behave in any of these situations, regardless of which one of us is doing it. She's a keeper and I don't want to do ANYTHING to mess that up!

We're the same way. We've been out with friends and go as far as betting each other whether they could get phone numbers  :D  I had one fellow one time at the strippers offer to 'help' me out with a group of guys buying my wife drinks. At first, I was alarmed because if someone was offering to help, I must have missed something that wasn't cool. But after he pointed out where she was and I seen that she was being herself, then I said "It's ok now, but you keep an eye on them for me" ... he seemed very excited about the offer to do so.

Like gostr8r ... I'm pretty lucky that way. We've always said, that at the end of the night, we're going home together. So as long as we're both ok with the evening, then all is well.

Rode it today with my wife, my project superintendent and his wife to the 4th Anniversary Celebration at Art In Motion in Kissimmee Fl. They build custom bikes of all kinds. They fed us and then brought out some hot models. The owner asked me to bring the SNOTHOG around back for some photo shoots with them so here is a few of the shots of one of the gals.  The others are in my gallery at this link.   https://www.roadstarraider.com/index.php?action=gallery;sa=myimages;u=420

Went for an hour-long ride which felt awesome. I've been meaning to ride for past several weeks now but except for the one day when I rode to work last week, life got in the way of riding every time (don't you hate when that happens?!)

Heated gear is an amazing thing. I used it for just the second time today and boy did it do the job!

After 1 hour had to remove lower belt guard,brake line license plate and barely slide it in from the back. Hope it doesn't expand too much when it heats up.Hope it gets up to 40 sat.

Mine was looking mighty lonely in the garage when I came home from work last night, since it was the first time in months I have made it home in daylight and before the wife, decided to start her up.  Took a few more revolutions than normal to start, but besides that started right up!

The sound of hearing her sit there idling did NOT help me needing to go ride.  At all!  Hopefully snow goes early this year and I can start to ride end of February.  Unfortunately with all the sand on the road I really want a good rain storm to come trough first, but might not be able to hold off that long!

Today was first great day to go riding for me in a couple of months and had plans to meet a buddy to go riding. I was not able to go riding. Instead I sat on it in the garage for a few quick minutes. Resting my head on the handlebars, dreaming of riding and clearing my head. Also made brrrm brrrrm noises turn the handlebars! But tomorrow is another day and I should be out for at least 30 mins - 1hr of much anticipated riding. Looking forward to that!

It is always a good day when you get to fill your tank 2 times in an afternoon. I went with my son, and his 3 crotch rocket friends on a ride today. The temp got upto 40 degrees, and no rain so we took off and made the ride, it sure felt good to ride again, don't remember the last time I rode, probably over two months would be my guess.  :raider:

I took on WAYYYY to much for one project. I took the chain saw to the money tree and here is what I have been doing for the last few days and will finish tomorrow.
LED front turn signals (metric fats)
Barrons BAK cleaning all that crap up. (still looking to open the right side as well. still not happy)
Handlebars 9" pullback from LA Choppers. (beautiful bars the 1.5 inch is sweet, clipping and soldering 22 wires  >:( )
Braided lines from Galferds ( nice lines for the price. )
TOMORROW.
Slam Kit.

I hope it goes smoother than the last two days.

I got my LED lighted bolts in the mail so I went to mount them for the side mounted license plate. That turned into me removing the rear fender to run the wire back to the stock license light wiring harness as clean as possible. And that turned into rerouting some of the wires for the LED lighting in the rear fender and under the bike...

Yesterday, got my Cobra Swepts installed with the BCT baffles.  Wow, those are loud.  Finished the right side cleanup.  Picked up my new fender and chin scoop from the painters...perfect match, they did an awesome job.
Today, got my fender installed, Autotune all hooked up.  Tomorrow, oil change to synthetic, install the Scotts Performance oil filter and chin scoop and add the Ride-On to my tires.

Just got the bike back from the shop Saturday afternoon after getting the following installed:

PCS rear slam kit with progressive spring
Front Progressive lowering kit with heavier weight oil
LA Choppers 9" pullback bars
PCS +2 cable kit
Iso Grips/bosses on both sides

This bike is so freakin' low, and handles amazing!
No more wallowing and bump steer in turns.

Yeah, I scrape the pegs a lot easier, but if I want to carve turns, I'll grab the Warrior.   :D

Did my first oil change Friday night.
Was easy using the lift.  My wrench fit on the bolts just fine.

Doing the transfer case oil this week as soon as I figure out how to get the fill bolt off.

Oh, and here's a pic of the bike after it was lowered front and rear and bars installed: (right click and view image to see full size)

The Service manual says you have to remove the exhaust :o I said Bullshit got to be a better way :rolleyes: So I bought an 10mm Allen socket and took a large punch and drove the 10mm Allen out of the socket. I ended up with a straight piece around 1 inch long. I can slip it into the fill plug and then put a 10mm box end wrench on that and out comes the fill plug ;D ;D

those holes are actually how you tighten it onto the bar, and they weigh the same as the OEM ends.

Finally!!!   The first day since December 31st, I got to ride my baby. Had to dig a 4ft wide, 30ft long section of my driveway out from under the still remaining 3-5 inches of ice. That was just to get her from the garage to the road. Once that lil pathway to heaven was finished, It was on and we were off. Weather was great. Touched the mid 50's today and Angela Buchman (the local SMOKING HOT weather lady) is calling for mid to upper 60's tomorrow.

I painted the lights but not the bar because I am using the bar as a ground to stream line the install.

Removed the tank to get to the BAK filters, cleaned the filters and while they were drying I visually inspected the connections and routing for the cruise control. changed the front brake fluid (did the clutch earlier), etc.  Oiled up the filters and reinstalled them, reassembled the bike and fired her up. Then I filled the tank at the nearest premium pump and promptly burned a gallon -- well, not promptly.  It took an hour.

You need to get your self a propane heater to heat up your garage so you can play in the winter too!!  I was able to spend most of the day in mine it wasn't hot but it was workable.

Most of the stuff I would like to do can be done in the warmth of my house. I will look at taking the tank off next weekend - supposed to be minus 3'ish

I put together a comprehensive tool kit for those longer road trips (not that the raider will need it) Perhaps I will happen across a HD and be able to lend a hand.  And then he trades it in on a yammy. Do you think there will be a commission involved?

Daytona heated grips are installed, very nice to feel some heat. On order a lockable black box, sissy bar with rack and passenger armrests for the wife. I think i will be able to leave the uprights and just take off the armrests when she is not riding. Hopefully the black box thing works out if not its on to a sissy bar bag.

Well getting down to the dirty work got the BAK in the PCV all hooked up. Stripped all the tins off and getting ready for the paint shop just waiting for front fairing to get here. And the only thing got left to do is Chang oil, led accent light, put the 250 tire on. So should be done in time for spring ridding!!!!!

Loaded the bike in the back of my Truck last night.  Left at 7:30am to go to the dealer to get another front tire.  Rode the bad ass home on the interstate.  The Wife couldn't keep up with me on the interstate.  Got an ear full once I got home. (By the way she beat me home!!)   Was a bit cold at only 48 degrees in jeans and jacket and sneakers but hell I was happy to get to ride.  Got home took the wifey for a spin around the area still she got cold.

I installed my Speedometer insert from Webslinger and it looks great.  It was sure un-nerving as to how much force it took to remove the needles but all is well and I didn't even brake a stop.
I'll post pic's when its back on the bike but that will have to wait until it warms up. :snowing:
