Re: Turn Signal Wires

The proper signals have black and red. The ones I want to use only have one black wire. It looks like ground is achieved by this little metal ring that one of the screws goes in. To handle that on a plastic fender, I was thinking of screwing it into a piece of exhaust hanger, bending that under the ...

Turn Signal Wires

I found some "clearance indicator" lights that I'd like to use as rear turn signals. They only have one wire. The actual turn signals I have now have two wires.

Do they have to have two wires to blink? Can I add a second wire?

Re: F1 CODE

This won't be much help, but... My FI has come up (on the LCD and red light on) when I sat for about two minutes with the bike in neutral, kickstand down, key full on and red on/off toggled on and engine not running. The fuel pump seemed to run longer then usual before the code came on. I shut it al...

What Kinda Idiot...

... backs his own bike into his own truck and puts a big crack in his rear fender? :oops:

Guess I'll bob it now. Anybody know if it's legal to have no rear fender in Texas? And tips or tricks to bobbing these C50s? I know I've seen some done.

Gmax Helmet

I bought a Gmax helmet. My wife, who hardly rides, has one and likes how hers fits. I got the Gmax Max 54S modular. $175. Damn inexpensive for a DOT helmet. They call themselves "The better fitting helmet". I'll say it's the different fitting helmet. I feel it resting on the front of my fo...

Re: BiLT

19 months and these are getting worse. The rips are getting bigger. I'm hesitant to put much more than gloves and a jacket liner in them. They only made it through the winter because I didn't ride much during the coldest part. I also went helmet shopping and tried on some BiLT helmets. Holy bobble h...

Re: "CE" Armor Falling Apart

Yeah. I don't feel like I can really complain. And same quality replacement armor is available at decent prices.

The jacket itself is in great shape.

"CE" Armor Falling Apart

The "CE" armor in my Joe Rocket jacket is falling apart. First it was an elbow pad. Now a shoulder pad. I can see the elbow going out. My arm bends at my elbow. Maybe I should stop doing that. ;) But the shoulder? Perhaps now on about 4 years of much wearing, it's just wearing out. I proba...

Re: At what speeds do you shift gears on a C50?

About every 10 here too. 1st up to 10 or 12 2nd is 25 to 30 3rd is 25 or 30 to 40 4th is 38 or so to 50, maybe 55 5th is 50 or 60 and up You'll get a feel for it if you do that or the by 10s way. The manual suggests: 1st - 2nd @ 20 kph (12 mph), 2nd - 3rd @ 30 kph (19 mph), 3rd - 4th @ 40 kph (25 m...
