FISHING FOR BROKEN BALANCER LEVER PARTS

Go here.... buy one of these magnets. Fish from underneath the engine..... it can work. Save yourself some grief and time.

Ask ZROD if you doubt it. It can help in alot of cases...... get it?

That pun was, well......., a pun. :roll:


Party bonus time! Them super magnets epoxied / zip tied to the lower frame or swing arm will trip traffic lights.

I've got one on mine and the most contrary traffic light around here now lets me go green like I was royalty. I roll up with the magnet directly over the lines of the magnetometer and within seconds the light changes.

Ham.... I have never tried the traffic light trick. I have the model magnet shown above. I'm gonna try it this afternoon. You just attach it to the bottom of the swingarm? You sayin that it will trip a light even out of sequence? Or just that it will make the bike register where before it was stuck on red?

I don't think it will trip a light out of sequence. There are two stoplights in my daily commute that won't trip with just the KLR passing into the trip box. I zip tied a fairly powerful magnet to the bottom of my bashplate. When I ride over the outer lines of the magnetometer and stop on top of them, they trip every time. I used to have to wait for a car to pull up, and at these two lights it could be a lengthy wait.

Free super magnets

If you can get your hands on an old PC hard drive the magnets in them are very nasty. I use them for everything.
