Re: Free to the right person. A $500.00 value.

I like how an offer of a rally entry took a quick detour into dealing with the inevitable outcome of mortality. Sounds like fun :)

Thanks for the reassurance Brian!

Re: Odyssey PC680-P Installation Trouble, 2008 Patrol

Thanks, that makes sense, and I'm happy that the solution involves a hammer. Did it fit snugly between the posts or do you have to pad it? The reason I ask is I'm not sure if road vibration through the frame is something to worry about in terms of the battery's integrity, I wouldn't want to rattle t...

Re: Odyssey PC680-P Installation Trouble, 2008 Patrol

Snipping a zip tie and removing the side cover, and now the battery is in the space and wired. I connected it, along with a battery tender attachment (I know AGM batteries can't use regular battery tenders but figured it would be better than nothing) and the bike fired right up. Now I just have to f...

Re: Odyssey PC680-P Installation Trouble, 2008 Patrol

Hey folks, I'm replacing my original battery (R.I.P.) with an Odyssey PC680-P battery ( http://www.amazon.com/Odyssey-PC680-PC680-P-Battery/dp/B0002ILK6I ) and it doesn't want to fit. Vertically, no issue, but horizontally, the rubberized clamp that holds my right fairing on seems to take up the sp...

Maintenance Cleaning

Hey folks, Working on my bike is made more difficult by an excessive amount of road grease, oil, grit, etc. I hate to say it but I need to w@$# my bike. Anyone have strong feelings about the most efficient/environmentally friendly way to get the job done? It doesn't need to be show condition, just.....
