Re: Krylon FUSION paint for plastic

Yes it could be the material to not being abs. If you try it again you might want to try some bulldog adhesive promoter. It might help you out.

Re: Inaccurate fuel gauge?

Mine reads the same way. I have the bike apart painting it so I plan on going in while I am working on it and draining the tank & putting 3 gallons back in & bending the arm where it reads half to make it semi accurate.

Kuryakyn VS Add on ring of fire

I was wondering if any one knew how the Kuryakyn Ring of Fire compared to the Add on. The Add on is quite a bit cheaper. I don't mind paying more if the Kurakyn is better. Thanks in advance

Re: Has anyone here rode over 1000 mile in 21 hours?

I done 1,026 on My Vmax in 17 hours about 6 years ago on an unplanned trip from Santa Fe Tx to Florida. I cant say it was really fun & I really don't care to do it again.

Re: side covers

Ok I received the wingstuff covers today & over all they look like a decent quality to me. I will say the body line on the back where they meet the bags is not perfect but if you have not done body work for a living you probably will not notice. I am happy over all they came with new grommets so it ...

Re: 88 Radio

My 88 also had a fader installed but not connected up. The front speakers worked, but the rears were so quiet. The rears had been wired directly to the front speakers so I investigated with much help from here and other wingers, how to connect the fader in- finding one elusive plug was difficult (d...

88 Radio

Is the radio on an 88 supposed to play out of all 4 speakers at the same volume. There is what looks an aftermarket fader knob on the bike but it is not hooked up. This radio sounds like crap & is not very loud at all & don't pick up that great. I think I need to send it to sierra but was just curio...

Sena SMH 5-10 in modular helmet

Has any one used the sena SMH 5 or 10 in a modular helmet ? I don't have tons of cash right now but if the 10 is really that much better than the 5 I would probably go for it. My GF & I like different music & from what I understand we can listen to our own music from our Phones with this if I am rea...

I have never heard of them. I would probably be interested & the bike that was behind me that deflected it off his arm would probably like if I had them to.
