    Good job!

    Thanks.  Dan, Ares X, sent me the seat.  I just peeled away the cover, cut it to length on a chop saw, and brought it to a car upholstery guy.  Did the same thing on the broken bike.

      Hello,

      I have Barons BAK and cleaned my air filters.
      Over the air filters, I have K&N DryCharger® for a better protection. I was surprised to see that, after about 8.000 km, the filters were very clean, almost no need for cleaning. Means the K&N DryCharger® are doing a very good job.



      My life it's an endless fight against maturity.

      Brought the bike in to my mechanic for a refresh.

      Oil Change
      Transfer case oil change
      Brakes, front and rear
      Tires, front and rear w/bead balance
      Fork seal replacement
      Barnett clutch conversion
      Plugs
      Also gonna remove the light bar and highway bars.
      Removing the light bar so I can mount a Boulevard windshield setup with a Rifle windscreen.

      I think that's it.

      Gonna see how it runs when she returns, and then I will decide whether I'm gonna get it flashed and remove the Cobra fuel management system.
