Very nice, I just finished my own version of the shift brace. Seems there is more than one way to do it if you have a little creativity and the willingness to try.

Great job!

I do have one, it is not broken or cracked, but it is crazed from being in the sun. I wouls send it for the cost of the shipping, but if you can find a better one, I would.

MEK. Apply sparingly to the crack and let it run in. This is what is used in Model Glue, solvent style. Keep in mind it may fog. If it does, once dry, you can sand it down and buff it out. A...

Going Dark on a 96 SE

So, for years I have been interested in going to the dark side with a bike. I had a GL1100, no tire options for that, a KLR650, no reason to on that one even if tires were out there. A CB500X, again...

My current contact patch is large enough without visiting the likes of McD's. I have been working hard to go the other direction. My bike does not need more traction.

Just thought I would point out that this is not true. The GL1200 and the GL1500 have the same final ratio. The ratios in the trans may be very different, the final drive is the same. (2.833 )
