    The day it failed? Picture perfect weather. 75 degrees, not a cloud in the sky. Tar snakes? I'm not sure why this would affect anything. But I don't think so.

    I can depress the belt and the wheel will twist. Belt is looser than usual. If you grab the rear sprocket with your hand you can twist the rear axle

    It does come off if you push down and forwards after removing the bolts. The thing is, some of those t27 bolts were harder to reach or hard to set up the nut behind while using one finger or two. By...

    All 6 of those small pan head screws replaced what used to be rivets. So yes, all 6 holes had rivets in them. Is this how they come stock?

    Ok guys I'm just gonna give you the skinny on this situation. I suggest you XB owners also follow suit because its a good QOL upgrade. I removed the whole chin spoiler, drilled out the rivets. I made...

    I have removed the grounds and sanded them down. Sanded down their mating surfaces, checked the terminals for looseness. The battery is fine. I have an on board voltmeter and it's always hanging at...

    I will have a look later but I am almost certain it's a rivet in all 6 locations. Like I said, 6 small stainless machine screws and lock nuts will probably hold up better and make it easier to...

  19. How do we remove the chin fairing without damaging it?

    I've done oil changes in the past and I remove the torx bolts on each side of the chin spoiler, but in order to lift it out of the way you have you sort of spread the sides apart from each other so...

    Believe me this is a huge QOL upgrade. And the fact that when it's put back together you can't even tell its been modified is even better! Because of the tinted plastic you can't see any...
