All that is very inpressive, hope someday you can afford to paint your fairing.
:lol: I finally have the funds, but I need to do a few more modifications to the fairing before it goes out for paint. But it shouldn't be too much longer now!

Jason,

I can't believe you've only put 350 miles on your bike in the last 3 months - what up with that?

Looking forward to seeing the painted faring on your bike!!

That makes two of us. It's been killing me not being able to ride, but I should be back in the saddle this coming week. My headlight trim ring broke, and I'm waiting on a replacement from a fellow Xer who is sending me his spare one...for just the cost of shipping! :cool:

74,124 miles - 4/24/10

* Rear brake pedal was sticking, so I tore down the pedal and lubed the shaft and rear caliper piston with white lithium grease
* Turn signal arm was loose - opened up switch housing and tightened down screw for the arm and placed a small amount of dielectric grease on the contact area
