I have been very interested in making things to replace for my wing that doesnt cost an arm or a leg. The economy is killing me but I know many replacements are out there at a cheaper expense.

My search for speakers have lead me to a junk yard. There are tons of late model wrecked cars with great speakers that may fit in place of the old wings speakers.

A little seaching, a bit of easy fabrication, and maybe even a good connection .

i am curious to see what others have done. maybe we can make this a sticky in the future

watch the ohm load on the Bose car stuff, most are 1/2, 1, or 2 ohm and you will let all the magic smoke out by hooking those up.

While riding last summer I met a guy that added an auxilary gas tank in the trunk of his 1000. He said he could get an easy 300 miles between fill ups. Not sure it was the safest thing I have ever seen and if you are going cross country, I think I would just as soon have the extra storage but it was kind of a neat modification. I had never seen that before.

when I had my 1200, I carried two 2.5 gallon plastic gas cans in the left saddle bag. they fit perfect, rode there for more than a year and never gave a moment's trouble.

I took them out when I finally replaced the rusted tin can that was supposed to be a gas tank.

I had pushed a solder iron thru the screw on cap and slipped a gas line down thru the cap. Never leaked a drop of fuel.

got a digital volt meter from camping world, one of thlose that go into the cigarette lighter and wired it up to show voltage. mounted it to the fairing with velcro.

Made drinking water connection from a gallon water jug, ran some silicone fish tank tubing from it to a windshield washer pump and I can get cold water while on the go. works well can also use it to wet my self down in hot weather. small on off switch that I store in the right trunk pocket. Either use it when solo by extending the switch cord and tubing, or wife will control when 2 up.

Are you sure, buddy? Haven't checked for any hidden labels, have you?

Had a friend once, who thought his son was home-made.... but it turned out he was secretly imported during a teacher's conference!
