    Low beam not working, high beam / pass beam still working

    Had a very similar issue and the plug had actually shorted and melted. Replaced the plug in short term with spade connectors but still had intermittent issue. There was a break further up the loom due to the routing and turning the bars from left to right exacerbated the problem. Un wound the...

    OGIO Bag Mount - Photo Needed

    hi guys Im still around! youre right the bags aren't ogios they are Ortlieb! And yes they came with a really similarly shaped bracket that I could never figure out how to use. I never did!

    these are a great exhaust, easy to fit and you can dial down the sound by stuffing the baffles if you need to but the look on the bike is fantastic. At $500 these are an awesom mod for anyone here in Australia

    Need Help Help, finna launch bike across parking lot

    error 12 is the CPS and clearing it wont fix the issue, the bike might start and run from cold but once hot and you turn off it wont start again until its cooled. I'd not want to try riding in case th motor shuts down while on the road with a CPS thats a bit iffy

    Question New foot pegs?

    When I had my FZ6 I had Jerry's inserts on both the rider and pass. pegs. They were excellent. While rubber might give a small protection from vibration, the serrrated billet ally the Jerry machined the inserts from gave the best grip in the wet. But you need a set of the original base pegs to...

    I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

    I went to an XSR 900 and the torque from the getgo is awesome the triple is a great platform. I did read lots of reports saying the XSR 700 was a good commuter, I just preferred the look of the 1st gen 900. still do over the 2nd gen 900. I do miss the under tail exhaust a little but not enough...
