^^ That sucks about the migraines!

FINALLY did some NB datalogging/tuning (GEGO corrections).  All was done in the cul-de-sac, so 1st gear only from idle to about 3k RPM spurts.  Overall everything looks good after running VE analyzer - a good bit of fuel added to the race map (max of 13), but that's easily due to the open airbox/high-flow filter and exhaust.  I'll burn the new maps tomorrow and see if my cold stumbles are cured.

I got a few extra hard earned bucks coming my way so I'm buying the free spirit belt tensioner, airbox delete, new EBR front rotor and new brake pads front and back. Also new mounting hardware.

I need to get me one of those belt tensioners as well...

Rode the bike to work over the last two days and can say that the first round of tuning I did a week ago has been working pretty well.

Started it up, rode it to work, gave her a nice warmed up 1st gear 10.5k rpm red-line fly-by on an R8 that lives around my station

Painted everything that was gold, bags included.
Lowered it 2”.
Replaced all bulbs with LED’s, No change on
headlights yet.
Remounted lic plate, added LED light.
Removed most of the quick connects with soldered connections.
Mounted hero with mod case, power is always on when the switch is on.
Soldered this bad ass little quick connect for my Tail bag, for the new LED turn signals and brake lights added to the bad behind the red reflector.
Changed re-breather route.
Put it back together, taking her for a ride deep in the hills only to find some BLACK ICE !!! Rush not needed but felt good! We stayed up!!
Have a new pic with chicken line after finding a dirt train for MOTO Cross so you know I had to go there!
Breaks tomorrow and going to clean her up again, way too much fun on the trail. (Angle tires were interesting)

'05 XB12R:

my new rear cowl from buellparts was delivered (bike didn't have one when I bought it).  Thank you to my gf for getting this for me for Christmas!  Love you!

A few days ago I installed my new aftermarket gold clutch and front brake levers.

Always doing something to my bikes!

Today I installed the set of 1" drop pegs I bought from njdevils1990....installation took all of 5 minutes, then I took a ride.  It is almost amazing how much better of a riding position that change gives to me.  So here are the pics! :

took the pulley cover off,removed the metal shield behind the belt and got the rust off the pulley and nut, cleaned up the lock plate, oddly no rust on it,  drilled a few holes with the same diameter holes on the cover and put her back together
