Re: Noise when braking hard from triple tree?

It's more of a metallic sound. A single pop. Put bike on center stand and tried to wiggle front end could not duplicate. I will try again with jack under front tomorrow. Thanks for suggestions.

Noise when braking hard from triple tree?

When I brake hard I hear a noise from the triple tree I think. It's a new 2016 with 8000 miles on it. Tried putting oncenter stand to see if anything is loose. Curious if anyone has had or heard of this. Thanks

Re: cell phone

Will using the plug in left fairing pocket allow you to talk? I know you can use it to play music but I didn't think you could talk. Also the phones are so large now mine will not fit any more.

I installed the pan after the incident. Would probably never happen again but oh well. I also carry a spare filter.

Re: Macgyver Belly Pan

Well that was a through review. And congrats on your safety wire job. looks like you have been around some aviation applications. I installed a belly pan from Cyclemax . I ran over a wrench a few years ago on my 2012 and punctured my filter with two holes.

Re: Perfect Ride Handguards: P-Review

On the installation video earlier in this post it shows you drilling a hole in the throttle boss. And maybe change spacers. I failed to mention I have a 1800. It does not contact the mirrors at all.

Re: Perfect Ride Handguards: P-Review

I ordered a set today. I cannot stand cold hands. I hope they perform well I feel they will. When removed what does the end of handle bar look like? I guess in summer I would put the original counter balance back in. Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: side cover removal

They are easier to remove if the seat is off. But you can't do that every time. They are a pain to remove especially making sure the tab goes under the seat. I have looked for videos that shows the proper way but no luck. I have purchased the crusemans online maintience instructions. Need to look to...

Could you add a bracket under the aft end of the round tube on the trailer? You could even bend it up and to the center of trailer. Just a thought.

Re: Squeeky Trunk

Cycle Max sells baby buggy bumpers. I purchased and installed follow directions exactly. Stop squeaking and helps against paint rub. I also did the foam on the hinges where they fold over each other. Good luck.
