History
Purchased from vtxcandyred David Finger(?) in March of 2010 to take to Idaho. Bad wobble in front wheel at parking lot speeds. Tightening the front wheel nut helped somewhat, but the tire is cupped probably due to low air pressure. Pressure had been kept at 36 psi. Noticed on trip to ID that the aftermarket voltage meter would sometimes get as high as 20 volts, so we stopped in Bismark, ND at a dealer who checked the stator (OK) and re-soldered the 3 yellow stator wires. This didn't help.

Modifications

Interior
Added new Shindigin regulator/rectifier summer of 2010. Voltage would still go to 15. So I re-wired the ignition circuit (w/relay) and it runs at 14.6 now. Need to get new voltage meter; old one tends to read double the correct voltage as checked with multimeter.
Exterior
Noticed after I got it to Kennett that one saddle bag cover did not match. May try to rattle can it someday.
Audio
Added Progressive fork springs in Spring of 2010 before trip to Idaho.
Suspension
Driver's back rest and passenger arm rests.
Wheel and Tire
Use Cobra CB radios (hand held type but wired to helmet) on trips.
