finally got around to making a seat lanyard, ended up that when the seat is hanging it makes a good place to lay your tools while working with battery or making connections. also made these bungee spools for about 10 bucks. Auto part Engine Fuel line Vehicle Wire

Finally got to work on my motohorn installation… works great. And it already paid for itself… some dumb ass tried to pull in my lane hit the horn…worked awesome!!! Loud pipes may not be enough but the horn make up for everything else and more!!!

I been wonder about these... did you have it painted to match your bike... or did they do it? Looks Good! Im with the big fender look...
Klockwerks sends these fenders out with a black "primer" on it . You have to paint it or wrap it... My wrap will be in soon as a tester for the front fender and if I like it I will wrap the rest of my bike. Otherwise I have a paint supplier that already has the formula for the color I want to change my bike to.

as previously stated, , they come to u in black. i didn't find a painter near me that could match the color so i bought a spray can kit and did it myself. with a rattle can, u just need to get enuff paint in place to allow u to be able to wet sand it smooth. u can get some pretty nice results.
but that is sorta like a welder that makes his work look good with a grinder.
the end result is presentable. but the skill is a little off.

Just outfitted her with new moccasins - Michelin Commander IIIs. It might be a month or two before I can really try them out. I was on the fence and probably changed them out a bit earlier than I had to (11800 on the night dragons) and the dealer heard me questioning myself then reassured me that if I thought I would need them this summer - get em while I can find them. If you're procrastinating, you might want to go ahead and do it now rather than facing shortages later.

Do you guys think these handlebars would fit the scout? I used to own a Honda Magna with buckhorns and it was a really comfortable. I'm particularly looking for bars that would make scout slimmer to lane split easier with, and I figured buckhorns would do it.


The "wide" version has shorter dimensions according to the description, but I can't really tell any major differences from the pictures.

The problem is that Scout bars are 7/8ths at the controls. So you have two choices. One is find 7/8ths versions of those bars and shim them at the handlebar clamps or two, have someone cut and wled 7/8ths grip areas to those bars.

Had a GPS RAM mount on the bars and just couldn't stand the off center GPS. Its a problem I have, the need to have things centered! So made a plate to mount the RAM mount using the forward bar mount bolts. Happy now :p
Very nice mount. I wanted the my GPS to be center mounted too. I browsed RAM mounts website and came across this: RAM® Composite Ball Base for 1" Rails. It works like a charm.
