    The rear brake on my S3T is good for minor slowdowns. I've changed the pads several times and the rotor once, not much improvement.

    There is a tutorial for fixing the side bags either here or on BadWeb. I'm going to fix mine later this summer.

    Enjoy the ride!

    I stripped my bags of hardware today in prep for glassing the bags. I'll get some photos up of the work.

    Does anyone have a side stand dragger that want to sell?

    Does anyone know where this part goes? It came with the bike, and the previous owner said that it's had to put on, but he didn't show me where it goes.

    Google says its the wireform that is part of the latch for the saddlebag assembly. When it showed the picture it looks like a part of a latch that holds the saddlebag onto the mount. Probably the front mount.

    That said, I have never owned a S3T or likely ever even seen one in person, let alone this part.

    Part # C0542.J or 91278-97Y

    Thank you for this information. I've had the opportunity to bleed the brakes. It helped, and i've gotten accustomed to the feel.

    I'll see if I can remember to take a picture of that part installed tonight.

    Thanks Cooter, I bled the brakes and they have gotten better with use. It has the Galfer rotors on it front and rear. I'm happy with the braking and won't be making any changes.
