  1. Look at the :23 mark of the video and then :48 mark. Watch the hub compared to the swingarm....it's out of round! Something is AMISS and it probably has to do with the setup and assembly.
  2. Oh my! I installed a Cogent rear shock too, but didn't have to remove the swingarm. But hey, it's done! ...and you have an awesome shock!
  3. Can you get better pictures? Looking closely at those, it appears that both of the hard bags are scuffed and the right engine guard. The CCT is nothing. Just replace with an APE unit. Clutch cable, cheap. Price is SPANKING good, but it may have lived a hard life being dropped on both sides.
  4. Well, they are 9 hours ahead of you, so it was Monday morning for them. 😁
  5. Here is the original discussion.
  6. The Tiregard TPMS is a good system. I've mounted the sensors inside the tire rim using Doran Manufacturing valve stems with the lock ring.
  7. It doesn't need to be perfect. As long as the cam lobes are facing away from each other. Also, I ordered my Pro-X replacement shims from https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com and received them in 1 day. Great price and service. You'll need shims that are 7.48mm OD.
  8. I went with a SparkBright unit...very happy with it.
  9. Here's what I did, bought these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H3CQ64Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this: https://www.amazon.com/Radians-CEP001-Custom-Molded-Earplugs/dp/B003A28P0M?th=1 Then used the combination of the two to make a nice set of custom molded earbuds that work perfectly with my bluetooth communicators. Effective, comfortable noise attenuation that stays in the ear and allows you listen clearly to the music or communications at a lower volume.
  10. Simply give them a call at 866-816-7233 and order the stems. Yes, any style with work with these valve stems. #3636 PAIR STRAIGHT VALVE STEMS 1 0 1 $9.9900 $9.99 FOR #360M
  11. The beauty of using the external sensors internally with the Doran valve stems, is that you don't have to worry about them leaking air. You can also add air like normal. Also, most internal sensors don't have replaceable batteries. With these you can simply replace the battery with every tire change if needed. The monitor tells you if either of the batteries are getting low. The Tiregard can be had for <$100 and it performs flawlessly with the monitor mounted between the bars.
  12. You can see my TPMS setup in yesterday's post.
  13. New tires! Roadsmart 3s as the Road 5s were a miserable experience with cupping and ramping after 2,000 miles. Oh well, I've got a tire machine, so "Quit your bitchin!". I truly view tires as consumables and don't think badly of Michelin. I think I'll try more rebound, yet I didn't have this problem with Roadtec 01, T30 Evos or RS2 that were previously fitted. I was running 36F/42R as my girlfriend is usually rides pillion. The Tiregard TPMS is a good system. I've mounted the sensors inside the tire rim using Doran Manufacturing valve stems with the lock ring.
  14. First valve adjustment this past week! Not too bad as it's very well documented on the interwebs. 😉 The usual findings. Exhaust valves were tight, while intakes were within spec. I replaced all 6 exhaust shims and 3 of the intakes to get them closer to midrange. Finished up with a throttle body sync and good to go!
  15. No, you got it right. Mine is identical. Set - sets cruise speed and accel. Res - Resumes and decels. That's just the way the Brandon CC works anyway. Same controller, I understand, as the McCruise.
