2015 RGS Winter project

The day she came home.




This Weekend I filled the tank, added stabil and fogged the cylinders. Let the tear down begin.



It's going to be a slow process and I'm in no hurry as the snow will be here soon.

I'll update as I go. A lot of parts need to go to the powder coater for a gloss black finish and a few parts already on order.

Worked on the bike last night. Small update but, an interesting adventure.

1st as someone else on the forum had posted my right side shock was mounted upside down.


Custom Dynamics LED's with smoke lenses front and rear, Black curved Kuryakyn plate frame, and custom dynamics LED tri-bar. Here are some pics with the lights on and off plus a video ([caution my ugly mug is in the video).

An interesting side note on the tri-bar. I've been working with custom dynamics on getting it to work for a few days. Initial suspicion was bad harness from custom dynamics, they sent me a new one right away. AWESOME customer service. Unfortunately the new harness had the same issues. When plugged in and bike turned on the rear running lights were extremely dim then when brake was applied all rear lights would turn off. After installing the new harness that the tech at Custom Dynamics tested on a bike they had before shipping produced the same error I suspected MOCO to be at fault. Pinning out the wires on the rear light connector I found that one of the 2 Grounds was shorted. The harness at fault plugs in under the seat and only has one ground at the origin and in the middle of the harness has a splice that splits into 2 ground wires. I decided since the bike is in pieces and taking just a harness to the dealer would be a circus. So.... I pulled the harness out of the bike, unwrapped the electrical tape and found the splice. I opened the splice and found the ground wire that had no continuity hand even been stripped before they bonded them together. I stripped the wires, soldered everything together correctly heat shrinked, added strain relief, and retaped the entire harness. Installed and everything works great.

Interestingly enough the harness had an "Inspected" sticker on it as well.

Amber bike is on a harbor freight stand and the blue is on one from Home Depot. Both are basically the same.

They are certainly not the greatest but are stable when strapped and get the job done.
