    I always wondered if it was legal copy or not. I would think not based on the price, but I can always email Suzuki to confirm it. Thanks and I like the list of mods that you have done.

    No it is not a plug and play, you have to splice it in. I going to post up even a more advanced brake back off.

    Default GMAN

    Tighten up the shifter with the GMan bushing kit, let out the slack in the shift rod to lower the shifter, and shift is alot more solid.

    I guess you can shred them to pieces and use them for polishing all the chrome that you never had on your Harley. You can also use them to check you oil and clean up the occassional spill after an oil change.

    I think you should add throwerb's tail light to your list, I get more good comments on it than on anything else I have done and for $60 bucks it's a steal.

    You should add this under Rob's hid kit, or replace it all together as this is a much better deal and the same quality. 2 kits for the same price as Robs.

    Especially since it has the hi-lo 2 bulb feature. I consider it a fail safe/safety feature. Very happy with mine.

    I had a talk with Lamonster years ago about this very question. And his experience over many years with several forums led him to the conclution that, because over time stickies get over looked always being on top. That is why I have this link in my signature. And I even point it out to all of the new people that say hello.
