Re: reverse resistor

If you properly zeroed the meter first by shorting the two test leads together and adjusting the needle to read "0", then the last photo shows an acceptable reading on the top scale.

Re: Why use the radio speakers

It depends on what the guy next to me thinks every one else wants to hear. If he is blasting rap or rancho music, I'll crank up the Mozart. When he's gone I'll dial it down or switch to the helmet speakers. The bike speakers actually sound better than the J&Ms. My helmet speakers seem to be better f...

Re: Fog light bulbs

:shock: I'd need a lot more disposable income than I have to justify spending almost $100 on four light bulbs. Even if they did last as long as advertised.

Re: Only stopping cassette player

Cassette only ejects when "Eject" button is pressed. When stereo is turned off or switched to AM/FM the playback heads only pull back from the tape.

Re: While I'm in there ytis(eye-tis)

The lack of sockets in the stock light bar is the reason why I used the strip lights. They are low profile and I only had to drill one hole in the saddle bag door and one into the space under the rear tail light to access the plug.

Re: While I'm in there ytis(eye-tis)

I installed the strip lights in mine. I used a heat gun to soften the mastic so I could pry off the lens. Also, the left fairing side marker was nice enough to fall apart for me so before I glued it back together I put in two rows of them. However... I haven't been able to get the right side apart. ...
