Re: Additional headlight on sidecar suggestions

Mount a 5-3/4" headlight on the left edge of the hack. Tap into the main headlight wires and feed into the hack with the other lighting wires. Good for lighting up the ditch, and gives more conspicuity than the hack fender running light. http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/drag-specialties-5-34-diamo...

Re: Are Hacks safer?

Whether car, truck, or rig: 1) Conspicuity - lights on all the time. Hi-viz yellow head-to-toe (no, not in the car or truck!) 2) Situational Awareness - "They" are ALL going to cross the center line and roll through the stop sign. 3) Stay Focused - Stay clean, sober (at least until you get "there") ...

Re: Winter Electrical Work

REALLY nice work, Lew :clap:

What a great solution to the Achilles Heel of these rigs. Nothing frustrates me more than chasing "Electrikery" issues born of thin russian copper wire and cheap connectors.

Re: Winter Electrical Work

Has anyone consolidated EVERY fuse, connector and relay into one box? A PPO moved the battery to the hack trunk, leaving quite a nice space under the seat for such a thing, even with the Ducati Type VII controller and coil under there. NIce looking fab'd box. Are you using different size fuses (1-4)...

Re: Another round of Poor Gas Mileage

... The screw is on the downstream side of the guts of the carb, therefore it's a fuel screw. :beerchug: :? :? I am confused, and will study more. This is from the Jenks pdf file: "If the throttle is lightly "blipped" from idle at 1000 rpm or less and the rpm "hangs up" before dropping to the set i...

Re: Anti seize substitute for lubing spark plugs?

copper based anti-sieze. While you're at it, consider heli-coiling the spark plug holes as a preventative measure. It doesn't take long for the aluminum alloy threads to get messed up. $0.02.

Re: Another round of Poor Gas Mileage

... Turning the mixture screws out RICHENS the idle mixture. ... This "Point of View" has been discussed many times on his forum. Keihin CVK32 carbs have an AIR screw upstream of the guts of the carb. Opening it up allows more air in the mix, leaning it out. :bow: Holopaw Gene says so, so I believe...
