Yeah, think I'm gonna copy that idea. May see if I can find matching connectors to stock turns on Mouser or something and make a plug and play harness for it. Hate splicing into harnesses if it can be avoided.

This is the exact thing I am trying to do for my bike except I'm trying to use red LED's instead, could you produce a write up or an instructional video? That would be awesome man

So basically i just soldered the + wire from the LED strip in to the existing indicator wire, then found a ground wire to solder the - wire in to.. Make sense?

Sure does, I did the same exact thing on my 300 before I sold it but I spliced to many times, I was hoping you maybe found a better way to connect. On my 300 I had the leds act not only as addition blinkers but brake lights as well and it turned out great. Have you heard of Rocks turn and brake kit??

Got back home from the road today, bike was delivered on Monday.

Only got about 25 miles on it before it started raining, but I can say it rides like a dream. Much more flickable than my 08, power delivery is smoother, all around just a more livable bike. Only complaint I have is that the OE Brembo master cylinder has like 1/2" or so where it doesn't do anything at all. Will probably upgrade that to a Brembo RCS19 like I have on the 08, but it can wait.

New Taylormade exhaust arrives tomorrow, but unfortunately I have to leave town again so that has to wait. Tail tidy arrived as well, but still waiting on the electrical connectors to make plug and play harnesses for this stuff.

I ordered the parts, just going to make a Y-shaped adapter harness for mine. Pins and connectors are cheap. But this will let me have these turns, plus the tail tidy turns.

The trick to filling these is to get all the air out of them. Most people try to use a small syringe but it's impossible to get all the air out that way, so here's a better way. A funnel hooked up to a clear plastic tube. Then you just keep pumping until all the air gets out and you don't see any more bubbles. Fork oil is the most common fluid, and it has the benefit of being available in many weights. Probably 15W or 20W is the most common but I went up to 30W for more damping ability. Got it back in, went for a ride and the damper felt much better. It actually damps like I would expect it to now.



Zaph, I need to do this on mine. I can figure how to drain it I'm sure. What is the proper procedure for filling it? Just hook up the clear tube to a funnel and fill the funnel then push the plunger on the damper back and forth until no more bubbles come out?
