Hello all. Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend.
Yesterday I pulled the CompuFire alternator out of my 95 se to change the cush bumpers inside. As John had told me one time, the CompuFire is a bit of a PITA to get out. Mine was. Mine had a rear mounting tab on it that looked like it was made for a car mount. That rear tab really made the removal a pain, had to wiggle-turn, cuss, wiggle-turn, cuss. Got the bakelite hard bumpers out and put in the new ones. The barely audible cold start knock I have heard from the engine since I have owned the bike has disappeared. The CompuFire has been reinstalled without the rear tab on the alternator case.
Also took the leap to replace my WING LEADER by Drag Specalties backrest with the Utopia backrest. Nice straight forward installation with the fearful part of putting a knife to the seat of the bike. Measured, remeasured and measured again. Then put the knife to it. No problems. Took it for a nice ride yesterday and like the Utopia. A tiny bit of tweaking of the adjustments to suit me and it will be perfect. The WING LEADER backrest will appear on this forum for a reasonable price + shipping very soon (gotta get some pics).
