Well I bought a bunch of goodies to stick on the Red Mule, and boy did that turn into more than I thought it would. Putting on front, and rear stainless lines seemed easy enough, but in the process of bleeding off the front brakes I broke the side of the caliper at the bleeder,
needless to say that was trashed. Along comes DaddyJoe with his parted out "04 with just the caliper I needed.
Thanks Joe, and Miss Marcia. Meanwhile I found my front end loose BIG time in the steering stem.
I talked to Doyle, and he said it should tighten up fine, so I tried it, and you had to go to the limit to get it tight. Today we tore it down,
the bearings were both fine, we greased them up good, and slapped it back together, it was fine no play, or anything don't ask me why. Then the fabricator at Doyle's Motorsports in Scottsville, KY made me an easy-up I'll call it for my center stand, where you can place your foot, and pick up the bike much easier. Thanks "Ole Man".
The newer models now include this, but when I bought mine they were not included unless you paid extra, now it's a package deal. Well I have put all the goodies on the "Mule"
for now until I see something else I like here is a list of what was added, and serviced.
Front, and Rear Stainless Brake Lines from TPI
Front, and Rear Brake Pads from TPI
European Headlight Switch from TPI
Mirror, and Choke Mount included with above.
New Dash from TPI
Accessory Power Port from TPI
Electric Vest Hook Up from Aerostitch
Oil Change, and Filter from the Shelf
Tighten Up the Drivechain from the Tool Box
Now I'm ready for Tour de Tellico II, unless I find something else that two GREAT guys can help me out with. Thanks again, Joe, and Doyle.
