    Little known fact beer makes an excellent assembly lube, old engine builder trick. Everything goes together smoother and if it doesn't you probably didn't need it anyway.

    I keep the lite beer up front to confused the free loaders that never contribute to the restocking efforts.

    Yeah I checked to make sure both seats hook on the front properly when installed. I was afraid that might be the case. I may try welding up a frame to strap it down to and pull it back in shape...

    It may seem cheaper in the beginning. I used to run the pilot power 2CT and I would go through about 3 rears for every 1 road 5 I go through. So you may find it would be cheaper in the long haul to...

    That's not too bad really. I've spent way more on projector retrofits which aren't even really an option with these bikes. Not to mention you have a quality OEM housing with proper optics that...
